    Yikes - Just finished watching The Hills Have Eyes
    I'm a pretty big fan of horror flicks, but this one was just ruthless on the senses...(need to go switch all the lights on now)..

    Don't really like horror movies, closest thing I got to a horror movie on DVD is The Shining. But would you consider that an actual horror movie or more of a thriller with a little bit of horror sprinkling?

    Definitely not a horror movie or "thriller with a little bit of horror sprinkling" fan. Watched "The Birds" when I was little and never have been able to quite trust a bird since. lol I'm way too much of a scaredy cat.

    I'd say that's a classic horror suspense flick. Nothing like a little "herrrreeee's Johhhny!" to stir things up. The parts that little Danny has to deal with (like the twin girls, redrum, rushing river of blood, etc) makes it more horror than suspense - at least in my opinion.

    Love most horror. There's only been a couple that I consider too much for my tastes - I don't necessarily like gore movies (Chainsaw Massacre for example). Exorcist scared the living crap out of me.. In fact, anything that has that weird religious twist to it usually merits whistling and the turning on of lights afterwards...

    I try to drag my sister, when I visit family, to some of these flicks (shes the good one in the family.. ) She makes it quite clear that I'd have to drag her kciking and screaming to watch em..

    Talking The Hills have Eyes
    I agree 100% - THE HILLS HAVE EYES was a tough one to swallow during the actual watching... I saw it in my hotel room when I was in Niagara Falls for the weekend back in May (the weather wasn't great).

    I am usually pretty good with horror movies but this one was actually scary... you never knew what was coming next.

    It annoyed me that they would actually venture out in the desert on their own though... almost as much as in those horror movies where the girl runs UPSTAIRS to 'get away' from her predator....

    The worst part of THHE was when those quasi-people (whatever they were) attacked the sister and stole the baby... UGH - Talk about repulsive.



    I say if you love suspense and don't mind disturbing scenes, then go for it. It had me on the edge of my seat...er... hotel room bed.

    Eeks! I watched the original when I was around 14 or so. I was babysitting and the kids were asleep and I watched the movie on some old Channel named ON. I was so scared but couldn't seem to stop watching it. I don't think I'll see the remake.

    "quasi-people "
    nope, nope, nope. Toooo scarey. I just like happy ending movies and if they don't have a happy ending.....I'll make one up. lol ok...maybe some other types of movies but definitely no scarey ones.

    lol

    It was borderline for me. I still enjoyed it b/c it was more suspensful than gore. I've seen all gore movings, and they're not my cup of tea - I also think those kinds of movies are more likely bad for one's health..

    But yeah, otherwise, it's almost in the same league as Texas Chainsaw Massacre..

    Horror flicks make me giggle. She always goes into the dark room with no flashlight or gun or the couple leaves the kids alone upstairs while they party, knowing that something is weird, or in this case, people venture out into the desert alone. In the Blair Witch Project, they ran off into the woods at night after hearing the noises and voices and being told by the locals that there were witches out there.

    I say most of the people who die in horror flicks deserve to die. Natural selection...

    lol - the one unfortunate thing that no director/producer/writer seems to be able to get around. I know exactly what you mean. Wolf Creek, for example, had some great examples of bone-headedness that made me shut it off half way.

    Some get close, but it's a rare occurence..

    I'm not a horror movie fan either and generally avoid them but I have to give mention to "21 Days Later" which I really enjoyed. I'm not sure if you would class it as horror (maybe horror scifi) but it was fun to watch. I guess part of it for me was that it is set in London (being a Brit movie) which made it a bit more real for me.

    The Hearse (1980) was a good spooky thriller without the gore. Rent it sometime

    Completely agree
    I love horror movies and so when I saw that it was on my flight to New York I was excited to watch it. By the time the plane landed, I was so sick to my stomach (and not from the flight!). That has to be one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen. I really can't believe they showed it on Jet Blue!

    Definitely not a movie for anyone with a weak stomach!

    Are you talking abou The Hills Have Eyes? That is nuts. I'm kind of shocked they'd show horror movies like this on commercial flights - pretty weird.
