Lists by Play-the-Tape
By the way I don't watch MST. So if you have any suggestions, keep that in mind. I think these are all hilarious by themselves:)
By the way I mostly watch horror films so this list will probably have quite a few of those.
In my descriptions I give some details which could be spoilers to those who haven't seen the films. So don't read if you don't want to know:)
Please feel free to make suggestions too.
But I have to say, I did not list (on purpose)
Dawn of the Dead
Friday the 13th
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Hills Have Eyes
These are all worthy remakes in my opinion.
I know The Grudge won't be popular but honestly I didn't find Ju on to be very good at all. And I think Friday the 13th is secretly brilliant to those that understand the franchise
Let me know what some of yours are. I might have missed them!!
I may have an actor listed more than once since I don't think there is a limit on great characters!
These are the ones that stand out to me but I am sure I will be working on this indefinitely:)
Please feel free to offer suggestions or comments. Some of these may be considered thrillers but I tried to make sure there was at least some sort of horror element. What makes a horror movie is a pretty large debate since things from The Curse of the Cat People to A Serbian Film both seem to qualify. Some thrillers are easily justified as horror and vice-versa. Anyway...
These movies are a cut above the rest or offer something worthwhile. In the horror world most movies probably fall in the five or below range. And all these got a six or higher from me.
In general I try and list only the original or the remake (depending on which I prefer) unless both movies offer something very different (I hate copies).
Please notice that they are not in order but are rated, by me, with at least some comment for each.
For frame of reference
6/10 is a pretty good horror flick (better than average)
7/10 is a good horror flick
8/10 is a great horror flick
9/10 is an excellent horror flick
10/10 is a masterpiece in horror
Okay let me know what you think and enjoy!
