Lovable family horror comedy

One of my favorite childhood movies. Easy going horror comedy, one of the very few that succeeds in mixing those two genres and not ending up as complete crap. Story is smart and nicely told, with good acting and directing. It's entertaining and slightly scary, especially if you are kid. And Gizmo is one of the cutest things ever shown on big screen. True family movie from 80's.

3. Cannibal Ferox (1981)

Not Rated | 93 min | Adventure, Horror

Three friends out to disprove cannibalism meet two men on the run who tortured and enslaved a cannibal tribe to find emeralds, and now the tribe is out for revenge.

4. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

Unrated | 95 min | Adventure, Horror

22 Metascore

During a rescue mission into the Amazon rainforest, a professor stumbles across lost film shot by a missing documentary crew.

Director: Ruggero Deodato | Stars: Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen, Luca Barbareschi

Votes: 44,963

For his work on the film, the director was arrested by Italian authorities on suspicion of murder charges and faced life in prison, following its 1980 Milan premiere. He endured a trial when Italian authorities were unconvinced that the footage was indeed staged. Deodato lost the original trial, and all prints were to be destroyed, but he managed to have the ruling overturned in the early '80s when the actors finally appeared on TV to prove otherwise.

Some five years passed before the film saw release in Deodato's home country. This movie was banned for twenty years in many countries.

Only for fans of disgusting footage...

5. Child's Play (1988)

R | 87 min | Horror, Thriller

58 Metascore

A single mother gives her son a much sought-after doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed by the soul of a serial killer.

Director: Tom Holland | Stars: Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif

Votes: 73,649 | Gross: $33.24M

One of the '80s cult "horrors". Only when I remember how scary this was to me when I was a kid, and now I can not classify it as horror at all. Although I have no idea where else to put it. The '80s were the golden era for this kind of movies and this one is one of the best in this genre. The only trouble is that watching one of them reminds me of five others and then I have to see them again and then I remember many more and it is a vicious circle that never ends.

8/10 which is basically 10/10 within the genre :D

6. House of Usher (1960)

Not Rated | 79 min | Drama, Horror

Upon entering his fiancée's family mansion, a man discovers a savage family curse and fears that his future brother-in-law has entombed his bride-to-be prematurely.

Director: Roger Corman | Stars: Vincent Price, Mark Damon, Myrna Fahey, Harry Ellerbe

Votes: 10,163

By today's standards this isn't horror at all and to younger generations, accustomed to adrenaline rushes, this could even be a bit boring, but those old horrors, and old movies overall, have some special kind of charms that today's hyper-production can't achieve any more. Scenario is based on famous story by Edgar Allan Poe and I think it faithfully conveys Poe's poetics and overall atmosphere, and Vincent Price in leading role is always safe choice for this type of movie. Just forget about modern technology, turn off all the lights, preferably on stormy night, sit back comfortably and imagine that you're reading a book. When dark castle emerges from the fog, eerily lit by a full moon, with storm and curtains carried by the wind, atmosphere of this classic for all times will drag you into story and obsolescence of production won't bother you at all.

8/10

7. Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)

PG-13 | 106 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror

The Gremlins are back, and this time, they've taken control of a New York City media mogul's high-tech skyscraper.

Director: Joe Dante | Stars: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, John Glover, Robert Prosky

Votes: 80,933 | Gross: $41.48M

Rarely good sequel :)

This one has significantly better effects than previous and Gremlins are more realistic and scary. From the technical quality point of view it is definitely better movie. But it is also completely different movie and because of taste differences many will disagree with me on which one is better. While first movie has somewhat serious story line, tells the scary tale with some comic reliefs, second movie is more parody to first one than it is its sequel. Yes, story line picks up where first movie left, but tone of the film is completely different. It is not 80's light horror type of the movie any more, it reminds more of Scary Movie type of film. It is fast, fun, full of pranks and references to famous fantasy movies and characters, like Batman, Wicked Witch of Oz and many more. First one has much better story, but this one is definitely better produced and more fun.

8. The Dunwich Horror (1970)

R | 90 min | Horror

Wilbur Whateley travels to the Arkham Miskatonic University to borrow the legendary Necronomicon. But, little does anyone know, Whateley isn't quite human...

Director: Daniel Haller | Stars: Sandra Dee, Dean Stockwell, Ed Begley, Lloyd Bochner

Votes: 3,198

LOVEcraft

Objectively, this movie is nothing special, but it almost perfectly conveys Lovecraft's atmosphere. For true Lovecraft fans this will be real delicacy. For the rest of you, this is nothing but mediocre 70's horror.

7/10

9. Penny Dreadful (2014–2016)

TV-MA | 60 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

Explorer Sir Malcolm Murray, American gunslinger Ethan Chandler, scientist Victor Frankenstein, and medium Vanessa Ives unite to combat supernatural threats in Victorian London.

Stars: Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Reeve Carney

Votes: 97,509

"Strikes the perfect balance between Gothic art-house horror and gory B-movie action.

Well, I'm trying to write a completely spoiler-free review here, but I guess it's safe to announce that 'Penny Dreadful' looks positively gorgeous. Great production design and cinematography: by the time we get to see Victorian London as night descends upon the city and the fog starts creeping through those narrow cobblestone alleys, nearly every frame looks like a beautiful, Gothic painting (and not once did I spot a fake looking CG-background). As far as the actors are concerned, they portray their obscure, troubled characters with a certain kind of "theatre" intensity that fits the story and the turn-of-the-century setting very well.

Story-wise I don't want to give away anything – but of course, there are unholy things lurking in the shadows that need to be fought (and they look rather convincing: the make-up effects are another strong point of this show). Like the iconic "Hammer Horror" films of old (usually starring either Christopher Lee or Peter Cushing – or both), 'Penny Dreadful' draws its setting, characters and general inspiration mainly from some famously dark tales written by Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde (and to a lesser extent from sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories). And just like the Hammer films - who may seem rather tame now but were shockingly violent for their time - this show is neither for purists of said literary works nor for the faint of heart.

While some scenes are genuinely scary in a tension building, "old school" kind of way, we also get blood soaked action sequences that will probably put off some viewers, but seem entirely appropriate given the show's title (in the 19th century a "penny dreadful" used to be a booklet of cheap, sensational fiction printed on pulp paper which could be purchased for - wait for it: a penny).

My overall verdict: 'Penny Dreadful' dishes out a hefty mix of gory violence, classic horror creatures, sex and action, but it never forgets to build atmosphere. The B-movie elements are undeniably there, but they're deliberate (the title says it all), and this is by no means a cheap affair. Beautifully crafted and with a great cast, I strongly recommend this show to anyone who likes the old "Hammer Horror" movies as well as films in the vein of Tim Burton's 'Sweeney Todd' and 'Sleepy Hollow'.

But not just for the fans of "Goth Horror" is this well worth checking out; I would say that after 'True Detective' and perhaps 'Fargo' this is one of the most promising new TV-shows of 2014."

10. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)

R | 123 min | Drama, Horror

59 Metascore

A vampire tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger.

Director: Neil Jordan | Stars: Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, Kirsten Dunst

Votes: 268,013 | Gross: $105.26M

Best vampire movie

In endless sea of vampire vomit, this movie stands as one of the best movies in vampire "genre", and after every vampire crap I have misfortune to see I gladly go back to this one to wash off crap from my brain.

I don't like Kirsten and I hate Tom Cruise, but here both of them fit perfectly. Brad is good by default, I love Christian, and the only issue is Banderas. I simply can not see him as vampire, but his role is too small to have influence on overall impression.

11. Brain Damage (1988)

R | 84 min | Comedy, Horror

One morning, a young man wakes to find that a small, disgusting creature has attached itself to the base of his brain stem. The creature gives him a euphoric state of happiness but demands human victims in return.

Director: Frank Henenlotter | Stars: Rick Hearst, Gordon MacDonald, Jennifer Lowry, Theo Barnes

Votes: 7,611

Original and entertaining story, but once again tragicomic realization. Production is so bad that it hurts. The impression is that movie is not made by professionals at all, but by random group of horror fans. Still, as bad as it is, I must acknowledge its originality and strong drug addiction message. I'm not sure if whole movie is intentionally made as drug addiction metaphor, but it's there.

5,5/10

For me, the best scene in the movie is probably the most bizarre scene of "oral sex" in history of cinematography. You can find it on YouTube.

12. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

R | 108 min | Action, Crime, Horror

48 Metascore

I love the smell of burning asphalt in the morning

To be honest, this movie is a crap, but it has its charms. Spawn has a good make-up and following effects, and the music is quite good. It could be a guilty pleasure if you have surplus time on your hands.

6/10

14. Cube (1997)

R | 90 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi

61 Metascore

6 complete strangers of widely varying personality characteristics are involuntarily placed in an endless maze containing deadly traps.

Director: Vincenzo Natali | Stars: Nicole de Boer, Maurice Dean Wint, David Hewlett, Andrew Miller

Votes: 185,306 | Gross: $0.50M

Disappointment

Amazing original idea which could have been used for making cult classic for all times. Idea that deserves 10/10 is by terrible realization degraded to average trash. Acting is mediocre and sociologically and psychologically movie is complete failure. Characters are so two dimensional that viewer can not relate to them, therefore there's no fear, no tension, no emotions, nothing... There is single scene that kept me on the edge of my chair, while everything else was just sad cliché. And, of course, ending is lousy in every way.

There's no much sense in making quality remake, cause originality is main charm of this story, and this movie completely wasted that awesome idea. When movie ended I felt sad and angry at the same time. Idea deserves 10/10, realization is maybe 4/10, so we have weak 7 movie out of what should have been 11/10 masterpiece...

15. Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money (1999 Video)

R | 88 min | Crime, Horror, Thriller

More people are turned into vampires as they go around spreading their evil satanic hate.

Director: Scott Spiegel | Stars: Robert Patrick, Bo Hopkins, Duane Whitaker, Muse Watson

Votes: 14,054

It's difficult to describe in words how much crap this movie is. Nor is it a horror or a thriller, humor nowhere to be found, lousy actors, even worse directing... pure action and extremely bad one. I can not believe that Rodriguez and Tarantino approved this, let alone signed... but they did.

16. Stigmata (1999)

R | 103 min | Horror

28 Metascore

When a young woman becomes afflicted by stigmata, a priest is sent to investigate her case, which may have severe ramifications for his faith and for the Catholic Church itself.

17. From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter (1999 Video)

R | 94 min | Horror, Thriller, Western

Set 100 years ago in Mexico, this horror/western is the story of the birth of the vampire princess Santanico Pandemonium.

Director: P.J. Pesce | Stars: Marco Leonardi, Michael Parks, Temuera Morrison, Rebecca Gayheart

Votes: 10,040

After second part I was at the edge to give up on third one. But this one actually is not bad at all.

It is prequel to original movie, it takes place about hundred years before first one and tells a story about origins of Santanico Pandemonium.

It is far from complexity and quality of the original movie, but at least it is obvious that Rodriguez was directly involved in making it. While he is just executive producer of second movie, here he is also screenwriter and by default it makes movie worth watching.

18. The Thing (1982)

R | 109 min | Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi

57 Metascore

A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.

Director: John Carpenter | Stars: Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, Richard Masur

Votes: 318,341 | Gross: $13.78M

It is considered to be one of the best horrors of 80's and maybe even one of the best horrors overall ?! If that's true I do not want to see the rest of them. I can not say it is complete crap, but it definitely is waste of time. Extremely overrated nonsense with no purpose. Basic idea is good, but it's not developed nearly enough. Characters are two-dimensional and stereotypical. Movie has no depth, does not provoke thoughts, can not be more linear than it is, does not arouse any emotions, there's no tension, and finally, it is not even scary at all. There are movies that are very stupid, but make you *beep* your pants in fear. Stupid but with purpose. This one is not even that. It is as if people who were accustomed to make only low class action movies their whole lives suddenly decided to shoot the horror. Linear, shallow and boring.

19. The Devil's Backbone (2001)

R | 106 min | Drama, Horror

20. From Hell (2001)

R | 122 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

54 Metascore

Different theories were arriving from all sides for decade and even nowadays some new appears occasionally. From Hell presents one of the most controversial theories that appeared in 1960's.

21. La chute de la maison Usher (1928)

Not Rated | 63 min | Horror

Director: Jean Epstein | Stars: Jean Debucourt, Marguerite Gance, Charles Lamy, Fournez-Goffard

Votes: 2,926

Perfect nightmare

This movie is completely different than anything I've ever seen. Plot is pretty much vague and deviates from original story by Edgar Allan Poe. It is horrifying slow and story itself is inessential for the film, it is just background for artistic cinematography. Jean Debucourt is excellent in leading role while all other characters are dim and unreal, like they are just part of his dream. I did not like music background in this movie at all. In my opinion it does not contribute to this movie, but rather spoils it. But, gloomy and eery atmosphere of this masterpiece can not be spoiled. This movie absolutely deserves honorary Best Cinematography Oscar, because the way it is filmed is ingeniously hypnotizing and scenes that flow before your eyes will mesmerize you into perfect nightmare. Visually speaking, this is one of the very best movies I have ever seen, and not only in the context of black and white era, but in whole history of cinematography.

8/10 for movie as a whole, but 10/10 for cinematography

Terribly underrated

I'm searching online for last hour and I find only negative reviews. I gave fair chance to negative argumentation and I absolutely disagree with all those reviews that underrate this movie. I saw it on big screen when it was released and I left theater under strong impressions. 15 years later after watching it again on my computer I still have same opinion. This is great movie. Of course it is not masterpiece of cinematography, but which slasher horror is... This movie is important as first real Serbian horror. Many domestic movies have horror elements, but this is first completely horror movie. And within slasher horror genre it is excellent. Good story, strong acting, original ambient, and overall atmosphere is perfect for this kind of film. To this day no movies came even close to this one, except maybe A Serbian Film (2010).

Finally I watched Swedish version and I have to say that I prefer American remake. This one is maybe a bit more realistic and more complete in some aspects, but I could not connect with characters on deeper level, while remake blew me away emotionally. Movie is pretty good but I definitely wouldn't watch it again, while remake entered my list of favorite movies of all time after first watching. However, I recommend both, cause although it is basically the same story, movies are very different.

30. Martyrs (2008)

Only for torture movie fans.

It says "horror, mystery, drama", but it would be insult for horror and mystery genre. Drama... yea, it is, and extremely sick one too.

My personal opinion is that movie crew should be hospitalized in mental institution (starting with writer and director) together with those who honestly and deeply enjoyed watching this crap.

3/10

It would be 1/10, but main actress is good and end has a trace of sense and brains.

31. Basket Case 2 (1990)

Director: Frank Henenlotter | Stars: Kevin Van Hentenryck, Judy Grafe, Annie Ross, Heather Rattray

Votes: 3,769

To me, this one is slightly better than the first one, but also completely unneeded. I don't see a reason to make sequels to Basket Case and more than that I don't understand why the hell did I decide to watch it.

4,5/10

! ATTENTION !

This movie contains sex scene you won't be able to forget. What is seen can not be unseen, so think twice before you risk to have flashbacks of Basket Case ruining your sex life. Although, I must admit it possess certain amount of morbid romance.

"I used to be afraid to dream, but I'm not anymore. Because no matter how bad the dreams get, when I wake up it's always worse." - Ellen Ripley

This movie is terribly underrated. It is a common opinion that "Resurrection" buried "Alien" franchise, but I really cannot see any reasons for it. The movie has a different approach than its prequels, but in 20 years movie industry changed so much and it would be sad if it was the same. Honestly, although I think it is slightly worse than two previous sequels, I still prefer it to the original "Alien".

Fun! Fun! Fun!

I have no idea how to describe this madness except by MUST WATCH !!! It is parody of horrors, with caricatured characters and sick dialogues, but with plot that keeps you watching more and more. I would not expect anything less of American Horror Story makers. This is one of the most entertaining things I ever saw. I refrain from giving it 10/10 because it still can not go in same rating with masterpieces like How to Get Away With Murder or Californication.

* * * *

I just finished second season and I deeply wish that this show never ends. It's damn super-fun. Parody to horror stereotypes with references to bunch of cult movies and shows and everything packed so stupidly exaggerated that it must be work of genius. Characters are great, cast even better and Jamie Lee Curtis is simply perfect. You'll attach to these irritating characters in no time and you'll enjoy loving and hating them at the same time. Warm recommendation.

Good movie, terrible name

At first I was rejected and disgusted, but then I decided to give it another chance without prejudice.

Technically speaking, movie is very well done, far better than almost every other Serbian movies I ever saw, and as I am Serb I saw majority of it. Story... OK, it's morbid, sick, disturbed, even insane, but warning is clearly stated: drama/horror/mystery, so those who do not like horrors are warned and should skip it. Nobody forces them to watch. However disturbing it may be, in it's own genre it is not so shocking, no more than Hostel or Texas Chainsaw Massacre for example. It has easy introduction, good plot, few nice twists and ending typical for its genre. Quality screenplay, pretty good acting and, for Serbia, fantastic production. Within genre, it's surely the very best Serbian movie.

Main issue with this movie, thing that makes it controversial and repulsive for domestic audience and even lovers of the genre, is it's name. Hostel was not named Czech Movie, it was named Hostel. This country, if we had real one thou, should have censored this title and force authors to change its name before releasing this movie. They had no right to represent our country this way. There's enough prejudice against Serbia and other Balkan countries already, we do not need more negative representations. After all it is just a movie and it should be observed like fiction that it is, but under different name, more fitting to horror genre, it would be much better accepted.

For movie: 7/10 For title: 0/10 and the one who came up with the name should be sued or simply kicked in the butt.

Drama/Fantasy/Horror ?! Drama... let's say it is drama. Fantasy... only if we put everything that is not historical into this category. Horror... not even close.

Pit and the Pendulum is THRILLER, set in XVI century Spain. It's adaptation of Edgar Alan Poe's short story of the same title with some additions from other stories. I have no objections, but it's really nothing special. OK for one watching.

Original cliché

If you are a fan of art drama or you simply don't like the horror genre, I can understand if you hated this. But for every true fan of horror, with at least a basic knowledge of at least cult horrors through the history of the genre, this should be a real joy. "The Cabin in the Woods" is a weird movie that can not be precisely genre determined. It gathers horror ideas seen countless times and turns them upside-down. Nothing in this movie is new, but the greatest thing about it is its ability to make something very original using totally outworn horror cliches. This is a parody and homage at the same time. It is a funny-scary movie with great visuals and even better dialogues and one-liners, and its pace and twists (even the predictable ones) will not let you get bored even for a minute. And the final revelation is at the same time one of the most ridiculous and one of the most awesome things I have ever seen on the big screen. It is not a masterpiece, but it is a real gem and I loved it.

I was listening about this movie for years and I had no intention to watch some low budget retarded crap. And then I realized it has 3 more sequels. What a minute, if it is failure why would they shoot 3 more. It had to make some serious money if they continued to make sequels. OK, let's give it a chance. And wow, whatta movie !!! I hate shark movies, even famous Jaws was retarded for me. But this... this is awesome ! I wouldn't say it was horror, more of bloody action drama, but it really keeps your attention and occasionally your ass at the edge of the seat. I am thrilled. Definitely my favorite shark movie and favorite horror action. Highly recommended.

8,5/10

P.S. When I saw Steve from Beverly Hills 90210 in leading role I thought he is too fatuous for role of macho hotshot who saves the day, but he did it very well. Awesome awesome movie.

Loved it :)

It starts as crime/comedy, but soon it turns into horror comedy. Villains in this movie are witches, so director decided to start with opening credit made of pictures of famous "witches", putting together notorious killers and evil women from modern politics. Very brave and politically incorrect, he bought me already. Movie is fast, story is original, humor is indeed funny, effects are good, very much fun until the end. Big ending is bit of failure, but movie is overall good enough not to be spoiled by it.
