if i was to sit down with a kid and introduce them to horror films....these are the 5 they would watch with me



1. The Beyond (1981)....this is the film that changed my perspective as to what a horror film should be like if it is a good horror film.....blood, blood, blood, and a little more blood


2.Twitch Of The Death Nerve aka Bay Of Blood (1971)....this is exactly why Mario Bava has and always will be considered one of the absolute masters of true horror films....perfection is in this film and if i remember correctly most critics consider this as the start of the "slasher" genre....actually several scenes from Friday The 13th Pt 2 were shot for shot remakes of killings in Bay Of Blood...it also apparently has more alternate ending than any other movie filmed....get this NOW....i suggest the Italian uncut


3. Suspiria (1977)....look i not argue the fact that this film has very little plot and no story or that the over the top acting is...well horrifying ....but i do not know anybody who loves this movie that would argue these things......what Suspiria is is an absolute attack on the senses....and for most of us who love it was the first real attack of this kind...and it felt soooo good...this is all about the colors, the killings, and the music


4. Martyrs (2008)....it's been a long time since i've seen a horror flick that had the impact that Martyrs did one me....everything that i love about the horror genre is in here....great plot twist, scary as hell creatures, violence to just about shock anybody....and a wonderful unhappy and somewhat open ended ending....this is by far one of the beast horror films to have been released in the last 10 years


5. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)....film on next to nothing....and with almost zero blood....this is in my opinion the pinnacle of American horror film.....and this is where it all started with the wave of classic 70s-80s horror flicks.....even to this day i still meet people who swear to god this is based off a real story of chainsaw wielding cannibals in Texas.....Tobe Hooper was an absolute genius with this film....and he scored some of the most frightening music ever in a horror film....make Throbbing Gristle look like Disney theme ride music

I'd love to hear a review from you on Halloween Jackhammer! It's one of my fav horror flicks too. What's your fav Halloween sequel Jackhammer? Mine's probably Halloween 4 as it carries the spirit of the original so well.

There is a review of Halloween in the link regarding my Horror Corner. As for sequels I haven't seen many of them as perfection cannot be replicated. H20 was watchable. I haven't seen part 3 for years and it is far removed from the series but I am looking forward to catching it this week as it has been a few years since I watched it and it may surprise me.
