Question Horror Films - 09-01-2014, 00:41 | posts: 7,507 | Location: 127.0.0.1

I'm looking for recommendations of horror/paranormal films, but a specific type:

Dark/Night time, Raining, Stormy, Thundering, set in a big old Mansion or Castle, you know the sort of thing, real Hitchcock type of thing but not necessarily that old

Any that include the above are my type of atmosphere for a horror film to be set in, there's one I remember called "The Haunting"
http://www. i m d b .com/title/tt0171363/

That type of setting is what Im looking for if anyone knows any good ones

Cheers

The House on Haunted hill was always a good one from memory, meets most of your criteria

otherwise your looking at 50's horror or the old Universal monster flicks from the 30's and 40's

Thanks, yea that one rings a bell, I`ll hunt it down

I don't mind the older B&W stuff, they do have quite good atmospheres for that sort of thing, but would prefer something a bit more recent if there are any

Its hard to find good modern day horror films as so much crap gets churned out are crap but each to the own, some from the top of my head I liked were husk, the ring, skelington key, evil dead 123, can be funny though

If you are looking for movies of that nature, I would look more at some of the older films based on the super natural, occults, Sorcery, etc. My personal favorite's is the remake of The Thing, starring Kurt Russell, and The Shining. Many films to choose from the below link.

Evil Dead trilogy, if you don't mind comedy in your horror. One of my favorite movies, ever.


Also, stay away from the new Evil Dead...

A Serbian Film

This is probably the most sickening, vile, dark, ungodly movie I have ever seen in my life.

This makes Human Centipede look like the teletubbies!!

Finding this film truly UNCUT is pretty hard, you might have to resort to something like torrents to get the true version.



Then there is also these two excellent movies!!

French horror made a big bang a few years back.





I prefer Martyrs to Inside but both are EXCELLENT horror movies! Very creepy, graphic, and sometimes pretty hard to stomach.

Ooh nice Been a while since I saw anything that truly disturbed me lol Thanks

Have you seen Eden Lake? It's more psychological than scary, because it's very possible something like that could happen for real

I would highly recommend John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness. An original horror gem from the '80s.

How about Teeth? A girl that has teeth inside her vagina. You can imagine where that movie is going. It will make you not want to go near your GF/wife for a while

Top right hand corner.

Edit.....Its now a Private tracker, it never used to be. They probably have gone this way since Horrorflix was taken down by some internal Arguing that went on.

Seems you have to join there IRC channel and get an invite.
Just tell them that you remember Horrorflix before it went down, you also remember BBGirl as the Top uploader.

That should get you an invite
