I suppose if i was to watch one, it would have to be based on real life, or the possibility it could happen.
But on the flipside, I loved the Hammer House Horror films with Peter Cushing from the 60's and 70's

Oh, “I Confess” with Montgomery Clift. Just started watching this one. Not only do we get to drool over Monty Clift (which feels mildly creepy in and of itself since he plays a priest in the film), but, it’s an edge-of-your-seat kind of film, too. The viewer already has the answer on who the killer is from the beginning - the real suspense comes from not knowing how Monty will fare in all his troubles. One of Hitchcock’s lesser-known films but, with Monty playing a tortured priest, how can we go wrong?
I would have to say that one of the greatest films I’ve ever watched and one I’d quickly recommend to anyone is one staring Ingrid Bergman: “Gaslight.” It’s an expertly acted (at least, on Bergman’s part) psychological drama/thriller. Bergman plays a woman slowly driven out of her mind by her nefarious husband. Not too many people know of this film but, if you can find it, I recommend watching it at least once. It has a real “girl power” feel to it - great ending. Lots of suspense.
I don’t much like the blood and guts films, although, "Friday the 13th" was mildly entertaining for me.
"Silence of the Lambs" was a masterpiece. Hard for me to watch, but just a masterpiece in film.

Alfred Hitchcock movies are the best too.....I am watching an episode of Dead Famous that I recorded right now & they are looking for the spirit of Hitchcock, he was just simply amazing.

Another thing to consider about special effects in movies and TV shows is how this affects people's preconceptions about the reality of paranormal phenomena. For TV and movies, phenomena must be visual experiences. However, in reality, most instances of paranormal phenomena are not visual and are actually very subtle. The influence of movies and television then has created the expectation for spectacular visual phenomena in the real world to prove the existence of the paranormal. Does this make sense? What do you all think?

I also love the older flicks myself. Alfred Hitchcock I would say is one of the best.

I also like a lot of the badly done horror movie's from the 60's and 70's. Some of those movies would be pretty good if they re-did them, but then they wouldn't be the same film anymore. lol
My all time favorite "spooky movie" is "The Lady in White" It's a classic ghost story with a happy ending.

Peter Cushing! Classic horror movie actor, and I agree, Hammer House made some great one's, back in the day! By today's standard, horror movies are hit and miss. Everynow and again, one or two might find there way to the screen, but the vast majority are bargain-bin fodder!
Also from that time, Christopher Lee and Lon Channey! Sigh! Those where the days!

I also liked The nightmare on elm street. And many others. Can't stand anything newer.

Slasher flicks have always been a favorite as well. Again, the goopier the better. It's just a shame that nowadays they make all those "soft" types of horror movies. All rated pg-13 and with an entire cast made up of people from shows on the WB network. Ahhh, the good old days, I sure do miss them.
