    I love horror movies because I find many of them to be very funny. Of course, some are scary, but many are badly-done. I've watched just about all of them on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

    Someone mentioned the Shining. I thought the TV version was much better than the movie version. I'm, looking forward to seeing what you list as good ones - some I probably missed.

    The trouble with Netflix is that they don't offer many of the "Good" movies. Instead, they're raising their price to offer us more homemade junk.

    The news has gotten too scary. I used to read news articles online. Then I just read the headlines. Now I'm avoiding the news altogether.

    Don't rule out horror films from Malaysia, India, China, and Indonesia. They can be scary (or funny), but you also get to see how people live in other parts of the world, and you get to see what they think is scary. In Indonesia (I think) "the third eye" is what we would call intuition. People in Asian countries tend to call older people aunt and uncle.

    My favorite horror movie is The Orphanage.

    A spanish movie, and a bit of a master piece imo.
    It is creepy scary in an underplayed down to earth way.
    Actually the plots seems to make perfect sense when it is all over.

    The above sounds like it doesnt have paranormal stuff, but it does. Just in the right doses. Not tonnes og cgi monsters, just creepy ghost stories.

    I will recommend you take a look at foreign horror movies - Indonesia, China, India, etc. You get to see different traditions, believes, and what they consider scary. People in Asian countries tend to call their elders aunt and uncle. They use "third eye" for what we would call intuition. I also find it fascinating the way they will throw in sentences in English for no apparent reason.

    I might have seen that. If not, I'll try to find it.

    Two very good ones: The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. One is set in England, and one in American with many of the same cast members. Some English and American actors swap accents between the movies. From what I recall, I preferred "Bly." I think it's at the end of Hill House that you fully understand what was going on - rather involved. I watched one after the other, so they are jumbled in my mind.

    Both are very good - no, make that Excellent!

    Rosemary's Baby.


    And I don't know why I went to see it, but Nightmare on Elm Street gave me chills... As much for the reason Freddie existed, as for what he had done to get there, and how he was in the dream world....


    But the end of the film? I think I either yelled or screamed, the visual is still with me, and I decided to never see the film again, or any of the sequels.

    I generally don't see slasher films, or films with violence; I've seen too much of that stuff in real life.
