My Top 10: Horror Movies That I Want to Watch.

It is early, and all of the kids are awake so I thought I would keep it simple this morning.

There are so many films out there, and in recent years my rate of movie consumption has dropped dramatically. I had at one point over 2000 DVD’s and blu-rays, but sadly,mounting bills forced me to sell pretty much everything I own, beside a precious few.

I still… ‘obtain’ movies from time to time, just not quick enough. Also, my wife does not like horror movies, and so we do not watch very many of them.

I am always looking for movies to watch however, and have therefore decided to come up with a Top 10 of movies that I want to watch in the coming … I want to say days, maybe weeks, but probably should say months.

  1. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
  2. Paranormal Activity 2 – 4
  3. Hellraiser 2
  4. The Woman in Black
  5. Let the right one in
  6. Sinister
  7. Evil Dead 2
  8. Resident Evil Series
  9. Underworld Series
  10. Child’s Play

 

These movies are in no particular order, nor are they the movies that will ultimately be on the top of my must own on blu-ray in collectors edition pile / list. However, they are all horror movies and all ones that I have yet to see. There is a cornucopia of movies that almost made the list, I could have made a Top 100 with ease, but you have to start somewhere.

I have the Chainsaw movies, Hellraiser II and The Woman in Black, so I will start with those and see where the time takes me.

I have kind of cheated with the inclusion of some series, but I have an interest in seeing them all and the list would have been rather boring otherwise.

What are the top films that you want to see? I mean older films, films that are already out there in circulation. (I know I put Sinister on the list, but it’s only 1 so I can forgive myself.)

  1. Ohhhh I love these types of things!! I’m dying to watch Halloween’s second through recent. I’ve never seen Nightmare on Elm Street. I’d like to see Exorcist 2 and 3, too! I also want to see Frankenstein, original (as well as read the book). Now, I can’t wait to hear what others say!!

    1. I have seen all the Elm Street movies, some of them multiple times. They are great. I also have the Halloween Series and Friday 13th Movies, The list goes on and one haha. Frankenstein is on there too. Not overly bothered by the exorcist 2 and 3, but if I get the chance I will definitely check them out.

      Thank you for commenting.

  2. Hope you enjoy. I’ve been sorely disappointed with horror movies of late. In fact, the scariest one I’ve watched in a while was The Woman in Black. The rest bring on a yawn, not a scream.

    1. I agree with you Riley, the concept of Horror has been confused with gratuitous gore and violence. I am a staunch voice behind the less gore more creep factor to horror. The jumps, the scares. no just bloodlust. Insidious was a recent horror film that I watched which creeped me out. Thanks for commenting.

  3. I’ve seen every film on your list except for Sinister and I own every one except for Sinister and Child’s Play although I do own Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky. Good starting list you have here, Alex.

  4. I still have to watch the classic Universal horror films, particularly those starring Bela Lugosi and/or Boris Karloff. So far I’ve only seen Dracula and Bride of Frankenstein! Actually I just re-watched Dracula with Frank Langella, and I don’t remember it being so gory, I was quite impressed! That is definitely my favourite version of the story. Another one I saw recently was The Wicker Man with Christopher Lee, excellent film! But I do enjoy a good slasher movie once in a while (I still get freaked out by Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Friday the 13th!)

  5. I came across your blog while looking for Halloween movies, and you have some good ideas in here. I haven’t seen most of these, but they would make a good addition to my DISH coworkers’ and my Halloween movie marathon. The Paranormal Activity series and Child’s Play (the two creepiest looking ones, in my opinion) are available from Blockbuster @Home, which ships quickly enough that I should have them in time for Halloween. In terms of your list, I’d also recommend that you see the Exorcist, if you haven’t already. It’s a classic. Anyway, thanks for the ideas, and good luck seeing your scary movies!

    1. Thanks for commenting Linda. I have seen the Exorcist multiple times, it remains a great movie. This post was purely aimed at movies I have yet to see. 🙂 Hopefully you and your coworked will enjoy some of them this Halloween. Have a good party.
