Welcome to Horror GAF. I figured this topic needed a little bit of a reboot. Please use this space for the following:

-Horror film discussion
-Recommendations
-Trailers
-Reviews
-Pics of your horror stuff
-Stories
-Whatever


Where to stream some, you ask? Anywhere, really. Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, Tubi, and even Youtube channels like this one: HERE. I really do enjoy Shudder for some hidden gems.

What to watch??? Here are some of those best of lists for summer 2019.
20 Shudder good ones
Some Netflix good ones
15 Hulu good ones

Anyway, what's your favorite scary movie?

I think I want to watch all of these. Essential Hammer Horror
That's not a bad list at all, but I'd probably weight it a bit more in favor of their later output. Certainly I'd pick Vampire Circus as the best example of their 70's sexy vampire releases.

Hammer made a lot of entertaining stuff over the years though, so its hard to pick a top 10 covering both historical importance and pure quality. For example although that article kinda gives short shrift to the other Quatermass movies, 1954's Quatermass Xperiment was really the true beginning of Hammer becoming synonymous with horror.

I'd also add not to sleep on their less pure Horror and more adventure-type pictures, as although they tend to be much less spoken of these days, there are some absolute gems in there. Case in point 1962's NIght Creatures/Captain Clegg, a cracking little costume adventure picture based on the old Dr Syn books.

Let me throw a few under the radar gems at ya for each of the streaming services.

Amazon Prime: "Pet" - One of my favorite movies in recent years. One of the best psychological horror/thrillers in decades.

Netflix: 1) "Would You Rather" - Another psychological thriller starring Jeffrey Combs (ReAnimator) with a fucked up Stephen Kingesque ending.

2) "The Blackcoats Daughter" - Not for everyone, it's a slow paced supernatural horror movie that builds tension and dread. Great if you're in the mood for that.

Shudder: "Summer of 84" - Hands fucking down the best movie (Not just horror) of 2018. It's Stranger Things meets Silence of the Lambs, but even more fucked up. Can not recommend it enough.

What a coincidence that this popped up.

So I'm obsessed with The Fog (1980) recently., the premise of community vs supernatural adversary, is very appealing. So my question is, is there anything similar that people can recommend? Prefereable classic 70s 80s 90s

I have;
The Blob
8 Legged freaks
Arachnophobia
The Mist
Dawn/Day/night/evening/tea-time of the Dead

Cheers in advance

Attack of the Killer Donuts

Yes I'm serious. Amazing horror comedy from 2017 with an awesome surf rock soundtrack.

Probably doesn't really count, but this made me think of The Burbs lol.

Also, maybe Invasion of the Body Snatchers?

One that often is left out of conversations is the Feast trilogy.


It’s horror that doesn’t take itself seriously.

Saw Midsommar for the second time and it was even better than the first. Gonna take this image from the film and get it printed and framed. Love this artist.




Most looking forward to The Lighthouse this year. A24 does no wrong.

I've enjoyed most of A24's stuff, for sure.

And yeah, that print is kinda sick. I still gotta see Midsommar.
