Default Any Horror Movie Fans?

I like all movies to be honest but I have a special affinity for horror movies. I started collecting horror collectibles, statues, busts, etc a couple years ago.

Anyone else really dig Horrors? There have been some excellent ones of late with Hereditary, Midsommar and a few others.

Oh yeah, wife and I are big fans. Gore does nothing for me, I'm more into the psychological horror or found footage.

​​​​​​Recently some of the best have been Insidious, Hell House, and the Paranormal Activities. Also The Omen (any of them), Blair Witch, etc. And I don't necessarily consider it horror but The Shining is one of my favorites.

The Conjuring was one of the few that really freaked me out.

Love the handle!

Yep big fan from way back. Halloween soundtracks from Varese Sarabande, posters on the wall, buddy bought a Don Post mask back in the day, probably '79 or '80. Big Carpenter fan. Met Dick Warlock, had him at my house for Thanksgiving when he was working on Firestarter. Such a nice guy.

Still got my copy of Grande Illusions, Savini's book. And many Fangoria issues from the early 80's.

We pulled a stunt one night at the local theater during a midnight showing of Halloween where the manager stopped the film about halfway through and brought the lights up. People were pissed until my buddy in full MM gear came out from behind the curtain. Place was packed and they loved it.

I acted the part of the drunk who starts shit and my friend had a big syringe of fake blood in his mechanics overalls and a tube running up his sleeve to the back of his butcher knife, which he then drew across my neck and blood poured out all over my white tshirt. I slumped to the ground and screams ensued. A handful of people in the front rows were jumping over their seatbacks to get away.

I jumped up pretty quickly so the panic would die down and we got a nice round of applause. Good times!

I think member TorFed has to be the most well-read and knowledgeable person on the planet regarding horror books or movies. I've read with great interest multiple threads on Stephen King, Lovecraft...all things horror related.
I can recommend the new adaptation of Dracula on Netflix. There was a great thread on here back when it was released. I also very much enjoyed the recent sequel to The Shining but didn't enjoy It 2 as much as I was hoping.

Thanks. I have. A library at home of over 1k horror novels and non-fiction on various occult and paranormal topics I've read. If it is a horror movie worth watching I've seen it.

Love Hereditary. Every time I watch it I pick up on something new. A24 as a studio is absolutely killing it in the horror genre. I'm glad to see a focus on horror returning to atmosphere, tone, and dread with intelligence.

Check out A Dark Song. Recent movie that does a great job.

From way back, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney and Vincent Price got me started. One that I just recorded the other night was Legion, when grandma climbs up the wall my kids freaked out LOL.

Same here! I don’t necessarily mind gore if it works within the framework of the film and is not simply shock gore like Green Inferno, etc.

A couple of my favorites have some gore cringe scenes but the movies are too great not to watch.

I Saw the Devil (Korean but out of the world good) 9/10
Bone Tomahawk 7/1

Loved Hereditary, and Hell House. Haunt was good too. Loved insidious.

Another cool custom piece from a guy in the UK that makes horror collectibles. Candyman is a classic.

A new Candyman coming out soon too with a Jordan Peele being a part of it - can’t wait.

I was a zombie in the original "Dawn of the Dead" that was filmed back in the late 70's.

Bone Tomahawk is one of my favorite movies of all time. The writer/director has written some amazing horror westerns. Check out his books A Congregation of Jackals and Wraiths of the Broken Land. Name is S. Craig Zahler.

I Saw the Devil was awesome. South Korea makes amazing horror/thrillers. The Wailing and The Burning are two recent that come to mind.

A good example of when to use gore is Baskin, a good horror movie from the middle east (maybe Turkey?)

I have around the top of my book case about 70 Funko horror characters. Also have a half sleeve almost finished on my arm of nautical horror oriented tattoos.

You know your films! Burning and the wailing are terrific.

yes....I wish I would have bought it when it first came out and I would have saved $200-$300 😢






The details on the Sideshow pieces are amazing. It’s a heavy statue and the base has details from multiple movies I believe:

For those that dig horror collectibles this guy has probably my one of the best I’ve ever seen. Video is long but his items are incredible. Probably close to $40K Worth of stuff.

We really enjoy scary movies and Halloween is the biggest “holiday” n my house and I have a 10 year old. Scariest thing that I have seen is Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. Absolutely amazing!!
