The Saw series I love the way the movies have continued while actually having a story to tell. The last one was a bit convoluted, but still solid and I genuinely feel like there's more then just "torture porn."

I just watched "The Strangers" and thought it was pretty unsettling. Built up some good tension and there were a few times I jumped. Definitely worth checking out. As far as all time faves go Halloween pretty much tops the list.

I actually thought The Strangers was awful, extremely boring.

Terrorvision.... Wow what a terrible awful movie that I love it at the same time. No movie does better defining the 80's.

I can see how you might consider it boring or slow, but for me it was all about pacing and build up. I thought it was nicely done. I also loved how the couple weren't portrayed as typical lovers and the house wasn't your standard cabin deep in the woods.

***Possible Spoiler*** Stop Reading Now If You Don't Want To Know Partly How It Ends**** The fact that the strangers weren't typical horror movie psychopaths (Freddie, Jason, etc) and the randomness of their night or terror made it all the more believable. That added to the creepiness. I liked the way it ended and think they should leave it at that, but the dialog tells you they're just getting started with their killing.

If Stan Winston hadn't fucked the Tooth Fairy up and left the original Steve Wang design alone, it would have been a much better film. And yes, learning that Chaney Kley passed on was a shock.

1. The Exorcist
2. Psycho
3. The Shining
4. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
5. The Fly

6. Halloween
7. A Nightmare on Elm Street
8. Hellraiser
9. Alien
10. The Blair Witch Project
