Re: Oh the Horror!
I would definitely recommend the following to horror buffs (or, at least, those who have an affinity for more of the psychological side of horror rather than gore and mindless violence):
~ Them (French title is "Ils"; incredible suspense, it's realistic and you can never look away)
~ Bug (not for all tastes; highly disturbing psychological horror thriller)
~ Marebito (one of the best J-horror films I've seen; bizarre, original and shocking)
~ Mulholland Drive (not really 'horror', but disturbing nevertheless; it's by David Lynch so you know it's really weird, lol)
~ Eraserhead (again, it's not really 'horror', but highly disturbing and unsettling; David Lynch's first film)
~ Begotten (bizarre, independent film that is unsettling and highly symbolic; definitely not for all tastes)
~ A Tale of Two Sisters (the most frightening and one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen)
~ Audition (possibly overrated, but a great film that will never leave you)
~ Jacob's Ladder (original, bizarre and disturbing; truly worth a viewing or two)
~ Videodrome (you'll never look at a TV the same way again)
~ Poltergeist (same as above; a horror/sci-fi classic)
~ The Cell (psychological thriller that is high surreal and beautiful; absolutely a must to watch)
That's all I can really think of at the moment; it's still early, lol. When I think of more I'll be sure to post 'em.
