    I feel like watching a good movie, I'm looking for something horror.

    Favourite films are wall-e, underworld, cloverfield, silent hill, evil dead, battle royale, evangelion.

    Sorry for a poor post, been studying and sitting exams all week and my brain is fried.

    Thanks, nothing there that I haven't already seen/tickles my fancy.

    I was thinking of checking out the texas chainsaw massacre, but didn't know which one to start with.

    Also had some Rob Zombie films recommended too me, but didn't know which ones to check out again.

    House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects are great films and his Halloween remake was pretty good as well. Get the workprint version though if you can find it, it was alot better then the tame cinema release. Check out the first Chainsaw Massacre first. Skip the remakes and modern ones though, they were just pure shite. Oh yeah, check out the original The Hitcher as well if you haven't seen it.

    If you liked Cloverfield, you'll likely love Quarantine.

    I refuse to watch Quarantine out of respect for REC.

    Everyone seems to have a totally different opinion on Descent, one says it's complete and utter rubbish and the other that it is amazing.

    I'm watching Texas Chainsaw tomorrow. [​IMG]

    I've read reviews, and mainly people from America think bad of movie, they even recorded alternate ending for American market (something with explanation that everything has to have happy ending)..
    Movie with original ending is one of my all time favorite horrors, nowdays, very few movies can create atmosphere that can give you creeps all the time..

    I really love that movie, and I've watched A LOT of horror movies, and I really mean a LOT!

    EDIT: And when someone says that this movie is rubbish, I want to hear their opinion on good movie then, because I agree that someone might not like it, or maybe they don't like that type of movies, but to call it rubbish, we'll that's just unjustified. Movie has really good acting, and has double story you get horroristic feeling from them going trough that cave, and claustrophobia, and their relationship that gets revealed little by little..

    I'm not really a horror movie person because most of the horror movies I have seen sort of bore me. The gore and all is nice but the ones I have seen just don't seem to have a story to it . .

    There's this movie that I've recently watched, not horror, more of comedy, but I thought it was really good. It's called: Accepted.
