You know...i like loads of different films for different reasons...I love Aliens though I guess that is classed as a sci fi..and The Thing for the same reason...Dawn of the dead...etc
Which makes me think that the video revolution was a great time for schlock horrors. Trouble is I cant remeber there names any more. We used to rent one a week atleast. I can recall one where the zombie vomited up its guts, heart etc. trouble is the gimmick over took the horror and you sat there wondering how the hell they did that! I love a good vampire film, all that repressed lust and biting!!
The scariest moment in a film for me is in the original The Haunting, when the two women are sharing a bedroom and there's all the haunting commotion going on and when it's over one turns to the other and says something about her feeling better when the other had held her hand and the other said....I didn't hold your hand!!! That has always held more dread for me than anything!
