A movie called "Jacob's Ladder" done maybe 15-20 years ago, starring Tim Robbins. (Love his acting, just wish he would shut up off camera!) Great movie. Misery is a very good horror movie, it is considered by many film critics to be one of the best horror movies ever made. It's the story of a writer by the name of Paul Sheldon( James Caan ), the acclaimed author of the Misery Chastain novels, who drove his car off a cliff in a snow storm and was rescued by his number one fan. His number one fan is a huge woman by the name of Annie Wilkes( Kathy Bates )who is also his nurse and caretaker. Later on Annie discovers in Paul's new novel, Misery's Child, that her precious Misery has been killed off and she forces him to bring her back to life in a new novel. Paul then discovers that Annie is a maniac and he realizes that he is to be kept prisoner in her home and puts him though physical and mental suffering and no one is there to help him. It's a really good movie. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. I would recommend the original Alien from 1979. This scared the heck out of me when I first saw it. It's about a exploration/mining ship that lands on another planet, essentially responding to a distress call. After discovering and being attacked by some pretty creepy ETs, the crew realizes that it had been a warning, not a 911. Big oops! Great actors including Sigourney Weaver.

If you don't like horror movies, you still have plenty to choose from! Movies about love and friendship are usually good choices, for example Princes Protection Program.

I think that guy is on crack lol. OK, Horror movies are movies that give people freak'n bad nightmares (depending on the type of person) If you love the creepy movies and good night out with your buddies. Horror movies would be the best type. Me and my family and friends all love Zombieland and Resident Evil. We absloutely love it.!! Horror movies do not mess up your brain lol. It makes you feel that way, its you fault if you hurt someone (not saying you will) But no, Horror movies are not bad for you what so ever. I hope you enjoy watching horror movies. =) If you have a youtube account add me: DLMTheDead

It all depends on preference, and you have to find a good horror movie to watch. Personally I'm not a fan of them, but there's a few amazing horror movies that I do enjoy watching. I recommend Paranormal activity and Oculus. You just have to find the right movie some horror movies have great stories behind them, and some are just all blood and violence.

A good horror movie creates a feeling of panic or anxiety in you. This creates a fight or flight response which spikes your adrenaline. With the adrenaline pumping you are going to see a spike in hormones which is why that happens in horror movies.

Some good upcoming horror movies include World War Z, Evil Dead (2013) and Warm Bodies. You can find information about these films online at the Internet Movie Database.

Generally speaking, the good ones usually don't.

Well The Scream movies are horror films and the scary movies are comedy so they are entirely different but Both are good :)

User Avatar

Horror movies scare you and suspense movies frighten you because that's what they're meant to do. If a horror movie doesn't scare people, then the director didn't do a very good job. Blood, gore, screaming, and axes are scary to most people in the context of a story about a crazed killer.

In theory, yes. In reality, it depends on the skills of the scriptwriter and the director in translating the book to the big screen.

A fantastic Comedy/Horror movie that I cannot recommend enough is Sweeney Todd (2007). It has a lot of black humor, but is definately a horror movie and everyone I have spoken to about it agrees that it is a modern day masterpiece. If you would like more suggestions on horror or comedy movies, I suggest you check out imdb.com for suggestions. They even have lists about the most popular comedy and horror movies of all time.

Horror is popularized in movies and two popular icons are Freddy Kruger from A Nightmare On Elm Street and Jason Vorhees from Friday the 13th. Those are two good examples of horror.

to see if they are still scary without the movies and if the amount of blood factors in with the scare factor
