I like all kinds of scary movies! I can't watch all of the scenes in gory movies such as the line of "Saw" movies. I have to close my eyes during some of those scenes. I like scary ones with ghosts and things jumping out at me. The ones that keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next scene.

Hi AbbeyB, I like horror, especially those psychological or demonic scary films (for example Omen, Dark Water); not so much of those with bloody gruesome scenes. I also enjoy the Asian horror films - Japanese, Korean and Thai. They are rather scary - I don't understand the languages, but the English subtitles are quite good.

i love horror films!...and have seen many of them!....some of them have been really amazing and scared the hell out of me!!...but i guess movies like SAW, HOSTEL cannot be considered as horror movies!...they are kinda bloody movies!.....not involving spirits and stuff!!

I agree I thought hostel was really rubbish and could have so much better, I think they have to vary the plot to appeal to everybody.

I think I prefer pychological thriller type movies more than the stabdard horror genres. To me they just seem to be all so predictable these days. The thrillers at least have some semblance of believability to them and I also enjoy the tists and turns many of them have. If I had to mention an example of what I consider to be one of the better horror movies, The Ring was done well and I also thought The Grudge was quite good too.

I like the movies that are suspensefull and put me on the edge of my seat. I don't like gore and weird things, kinda like detective movies mysteries movies that make you think along with being scared. My last gore movie was Nightmare on Elm Street I didn't sleep for 2 months after watching that one! LOL.

I love horror movies and it doesnt have to have all the blood guts and stuff like that either. I prefer a good twist at the end and good solid storyline to it also.

Satanic Horror. I've never seen any good satanic horror lately because producers focus more on gore and biochemical horror. I like The Exorcist specifically. I've never seen anything like it in terms of scare, controversy and gore. The movie is very disturbing in a sense that it still haunts me up to now. The Exorcist of Emily Rose is ok but it's more of a drama than horror although it does have some scary scenes especially the one on the church. Since i have no choice, i temporarily shift my focus on gore like Saw, Hostel, Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw Maasacre. There's just an over abundance on this type of genre. Even Bmovies are joining the bandwagon though they're the ones who love doing gore films.
