EW's 20 Top Horror Films of the Past 20 Years

Or they just don't know about the subject and think everything goes together.

Not sure if I'm misreading this or not but are you basically saying I don't know enough about horror movies?

No, I'm not talking about you.

I thought you were talking about general people. Like regular movie fans.
 
I agree with TAC, a lot of people don't realize there are different genres, and lump things together that have no place together. Like Seven and Friday the 13th.

If they just hear it has a movie with a ghost or someone getting killed, it's automatically assumed its a horror movie.

A horror film doesn't need to be a straight up slasher. There are horror elements present in all those films, but not to the extent where there's a slasher or gore galore. Horror elements is all. Are they strictly horror? No, but why shouldn't he put them in the list? There are moments in some of those films that are truly scary.
 
I think the ending is still the scariest part.

I still have no idea what the **** happened with the ending. :huh: I just saw a dude standing in the corner. I saw it on tv but did they cut anything out. I like the concept but it didn't scare me.
 
But the real question is are they really the best of the last 20 years?

Sure it might be good, but one of the best of the last 20 years? Thats what you need to ask yourself.

I think the chick then screams and drops the corner.

Cause as they said you go in the corner just before you die or something like that it said.
 
Where the hell was The Others? :down

I know it's not full on horror but I think it fits. Great movie. :up:

The girl is the one with the camera at that point and as she's looking for the other guy she ends up in the basement and right as she finds him standing in the corner the camera gets knocked out of her hands and falls as she screams. Basically the Witch got her.

It was told earlier in the film that part of the story/legend of the witch is that she would have kids she kidnapped stand facing the corner or walls of the basement as she would kill them one by one. That's why the guy was standing in the corner.
 
this guy's writing style bugs me even more than his ****** list.
He comes off as one of those guys who hates the genre and has no respect for it. And like he's almost better then anyone else who likes these films.
 
I couldn't tell you, I've never seen it. I think its like a ghost movie.
One of my favorites in the genre, you should check it out. It's a quality flick (great acting, score, twist). I figured you would've seen it already. :hehe:

That didn't really scare me at all.

Blair Witch has been put on top horror lists for years and I never got why. I can see it for being fresh, but that doesn't mean it's scary. it wasn't. All I got was people yelling at each other and screaming and a tent that moved and a pile of rocks stacked on top of each other.

Is the fact that the legend itself is realistic and creepy that makes it scary?
 
JaD is that the one with Nicole Kidman?

I think it takes place during WW1 or 2 right?

He constantly uses terms like "whirligig", "candy-colored" and "hellzapoppin'" in his reviews of horror/blockbuster fare.

Yeah, thats the one. I think she has a kid in it. But like I said i'm not sure, never seen it.

If you don't know anything about it (like any spoilers) I would suggest checking it out. It's a good old fashioned dramatic ghost story, with a bit of a twist to it. Not much replay value, IMO.

Different strokes for different folks is all I can say. I tend to let myself slip into films, especially horror films. That's why I can't stand interruptions like people talking on their phones and whatnot, takes me out of that world. It's because of that, that I can still jump and get spooked fairly easy at my age. I've always been a huge day dreamer so for a lot of films especially horror films that try to scare you I easily get lost in it all.

For me way back when, in the theatre I got spooked by it even though I knew it was fictional. It had to do with most of it at taking place at night and the fact that what you can see is through the limited vision/scope of a hand held camera. A lot of the scares had to do with atmosphere and sound effects. It wasn't a cliche horror film where they just throw some big monster running at the screen or a cat jumping off some boxes to try to scare the audience.

Is it like the orphanage or sixth sense?

Yup, they are all over the place anymore. :dry:

A lot of these guys want to make out that they are well rounded fans of film, but more times than not come off like pretentious snobby ***holes.
