TRTSM Recommends: Horror and Science Fiction Movies
« on: October 18, 2012, 07:32:22 AM »
In part because Cowboy Numbers is "catching up on classics" and I'm always thinking of what horror movies I should seek out, I figured it'd be cool to have a definitive TRTSM Horror/Sci-Fi Movie List.  If I've missed any titles, feel free to nominate them.

I've seen almost all of those, and would slice about two dozen off the list as "not at all essential."  And add Saw VI.  It's about healthcare!

You've seriously seen almost all of them? I would never have pegged you as a high-volume horror guy. That list is fucking long.

Can you recommend something from there? A horror movie that I really like for reference is Deep Red. Hey, maybe that should be added!

I'd add The Bird with the Crystal Plumage. Huge influence in the Giallo sub genre.

Compiling this list, I had forgotten how solid a film Mute Witness was.  I saw it on IFC a couple years ago after looking it up on IMDB to see how it was rated when the description intrigued me.  It's a good little tension thriller and worth checking out if it's on.

I count 16 I haven't seen, so yeah, almost all of them.  I'd recommend any other Argento, especially Suspiria.  Definitely Black Christmas.  And if you've never seen The Wicker Man, it's one of the few that exceeds Argento for flat-out "oh man this is ridiculous and nuts."

And I was totally joking about Saw VI, Harley.  You should probably take that off and put up The House of the Devil instead.

Black Swan

This is considered a horror movie? I'll check it out regardless as well as the other Argento stuff and Wicker Man.

Report your findings on Deep Red, Dead Roy. I haven't seen it in awhile, but I remember liking it a lot. One of my favourite scores, and some great cinematography. The killing scenes are p. epic as well.

I'd definitely consider Black Swan a horror movie. It's quite terrifying if you let yourself really delve into it.

My recs follow, and I've broken them down by sub-genre. Some are really great must-sees, some are just b-movie schlock that you should see either for fun or to see how a movie shouldn't be made.

Zombie (1979) - Directed by Lucio Fulci aka Zombi
It's actually AKA Zombi 2. Dawn of the Dead (original) was released as Zombi in Italy.

No rule saying horror has to have crazed killers or supernatural elements.
100% true.

Also, we should probably add the original version of The Crazies (from 1973, directed by George Romerio) to the list. I'll say that the remake is better, but there's elements of the original that I really wish they kept for the remake, particularly the ending.

Black Swan is more of a Thriller than a Horror. I always feel like that line gets blurred a lot, but what can ya do..

Glad to see Session 9 is already on the list. It's another one that blurs that line but it's a great movie regardless. I'll go through my DVD/BRDs later tonight and add a few more to the list.

Joseph Lee of 411mania (he writes A Bloody Good Time, focusing on all things horror each week) made a great point about "thrillers": most of them are horror movies that would like to be Oscar-bait, so they call themselves "thrillers" instead.

Indeed, I actually sometimes prefer movies that lean more towards the thriller side (see Black Swan, Mute Witness, etc.) as opposed to the strictly supernatural side.

I updated the list a bit and included a movie I have a soft spot for in Alligator.  Don't be afraid to throw out movies that are merely solid or 'only' okay either.  Almost everybody knows the classics and I love lists like what we have now where I haven't heard or seen a decent amount of the movies listed.  There have been times I've literally DVR'd a movie simply because a TRTSM poster said it was worth watching or recommended it (Pontypool being an example).

Wasn't sure about Pontypool at first but I actually kinda liked it in the end. It was especially weird to hear them calling out locations that I know or have been to as being under attack, lol.

Couple more...
La Horde (2009, directed by Benjamin Rocher & Yannick Dahan, France)
The Dead (2010, directed by Howard J. Ford & Jonathan Ford, United Kingdom)
Bride of Re-Animator (1990, directed by Brian Yunza)

I was serious about Dagon (2001, directed by Stuard Gordon). It may be a deviation from The Shadow over Innsmouth but it's still a good creepy/small town monster movie.

I've been saying this for years. Silence of the Lambs is a horror movie, but don't tell that to Hollywood. I'm surprised The Exorcist isn't listed as thriller most of the time.

And I'd add Maniac and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer to the list.

Black Swan is very much a horror film, just as Roman Polanski's Repulsion is very much a horror film. The terror the protagonist in each experiences is in their minds (uh, spoiler, maybe?), but can't what they—and we—imagine be as scary as any masked killer or undead creature?

Should we categorize these from "all-around classics" to "absolute garbage"? There's enough listed that fit into both categories that anybody getting serious about horror should see.

Should we make our own b-movie section, too, for the cheese that's in between but still great?

Maybe not absolute garbage. Opinions differ, after all. Maybe a star rating system would be better?

Also categorizing by sub-genre would probably be the best improvement to this list, IMO.

I'm open to trying to categorize the list but am leery of 'rating' movies ala good vs bad or 5* vs 1* since as stated, opinions differ and it IMO would get too cluster-fuckey.  That and anybody halfway aware of the horror genre would (should) instantly recognize titles that are considered cream of the crop ala Alien, Halloween, The Shining, etc.

Edit: I'd be more amenable to just breaking up by sub-genre personally.

As for sub-genres, how should the listing go? Aliens/Extraterrestrial, Haunting/Ghost, Monster/Supernatural (for like Frankenstein), Thrillers, Vampires, Werewolf, Zombie?

Zombie is easy since "dead fleshy thing moving" is all you need. I'd say Frankenstein would be sci-fi/horror since the monster was made with science and not reading out of a cursed book, or something.

Honestly? If we categorize these, we should allow room for crossover. Some of them could definitely fit multiple categories, such as [REC] and [REC]2 (Zombie / Supernatural / Found-Footage).

Just tried a brief sorting by sub-genre and yeah.... no.  The list is friggin' massive and it's a little overwhelming trying to sort it as it is.

If anybody has questions about a movie or wants recommendations, just ask and maybe state interests e.g. "I liked Near Dark, looking for a good vampire flick from the list."
