there’s only one horror movie worth watching.
all others are shit for prole retards.
of course 2001 and Dr Strangelove and Apocalypse Now might be classed as horrors by some…but i wouldn’t.
it was nominated for best picture before i was born.
it was re-released a few years ago (in theatres) and i went to see it.
that was The Exorcist.
peepee needs an exorcism.
the same director made the best picture winner The French Connection…a movie i hated when i was younger but loved when i was older
An excellent short clone of The Exorcist is Tales from the Darkside Season 2 Episode 9 The Trouble with Mary Jane:
It is true that the The Exorcist is one of the horror films that appeals to the higher social classes (though not exclusively so). Other relatively higher class horror includes:
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
The Shining (1980)
The Dark Hours (2005): I personally crowned this the greatest Canadian horror film of all time.
Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
The Strangers (2008)
