Orphan was terrific. I still haven't seen Ichi the Killer, in fact I had forgotten all about it, thank you for reminding me.

[REC] was exellent but it's American counterpart Quarantine, not so much. I haven't seen the sequels to [REC] yet, I've heard they are good.

What about some old black and white horror classics, anybody get into the classics. One of my favorites is Robert Wise's The Haunting, it's one of the few that actually gave me chills. I enjoyed Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte as well.

dlsevern,

As for black and white horror classics:

1/ JEKYLL AND HYDE (1931) with Fredric March is a must.

2/ DEMENTIA 13, Francis Ford Copolla's first film, inspired by PSYCHO.

3/ PEEPING TOM

4/ REPULSION, by Polanski

I know of Dementia 13 and Peeping Tom but have yet to see them, the other two I didn't know of.

What about Argento, who else loves this guy. I own quite a few of his films.

DEEP RED is up there. Very creepy at the time, particularly the window scene.

I've seen all Argento's other work. Most of his actors are "woody," but his set pieces are brilliant.

I like the part with the little mechanical doll on the tricycle, I always have found that creepy, of course I think all dolls are creepy.

Dolls creepy? Then, of course, you've seen MAGIC, right? With a young Anthony Hopkins.

If not, read the book first. Goldman is a superb thriller writer. His twists are great. MARATHON MAN, etc.

Manniquins are the worst for me, my ex used to tease my all the time about placing a manniquin in bed with me while I sleep. She probably would have found me dead from fright the next morning.

Its just something about them... dolls, clowns, etc..
Must be a childhood thing..

If horror is to really work, it must have a crackerjack story. There was a time when filmmakers went looking for the best PROVEN material from which to work, and we got thoughtful movies like THE OTHER:

Now filmmakers only seem to go with films that can display the most special effects, not that special effects are bad but they would be much better with a great story.
