Please recommend me some for the season. I'm currently fresh out ideas, sans Sinister which I'll be seeing this week.

So I spent the entire movie thinking about how quickly "it" would have been taken care of by a fistful of retractable adamantium claws.
Or something as lame as not putting out...

It never fails to amaze me how the small stuff makes you pull up the blanket.

That Documentary on night terrors freaked me out. I use to sleep walk (a lot) and had a bad dream here and there but never had that.

Apparently you can start having it at any random point in your life without any other signs of mental illness.

ANYONE can get it.

That's more terrifying to me than any horror movie...

that's one I will not be watching.
when I was a kid my parents found me several mornings out in the backyard asleep under a tree. that's pretty uncool man. but at least I wasn't having night terrors. some irrational part of me is afraid that if I watch it.....I'll get it. :-)

Just watched the possession of Michael king, and the Atticus intstitute. Was shockingly surprised by both.
Housebound was a pretty hilarious horror/comedy. Horror is hard to find and opinions vary wildly. I watched a vampire mockumentary called Afflicted and liked it a lot.

Just think of all the other King novels that were made for TV (IT, The Stand, The Tommyknockers, et. al.) and you get the idea.

The made for TV version of The Shinning, and all the other King novels that were turned into multi-part TV specials, is absolute and total garbage.

You want some scary movies? Try any of the VHS movies (the second is the scariest in my opinion) or the J-horror movie The Audition.

I dunno. always pissed me off....especially leaving out the hedge animals. just ****ing STUPID. and the ending! what a STUPID ending stanley! king got it right in the book so don't **** with it!

the steven weber version...I liked it. it was a little long winded though. but I got my damn hedge animals and a MUCH better looking wendy! :-) also the scene with the lady coming out of the tub after the boy is very disturbing considering it was on TV. pretty sick man. loved it.

Take my word on this,the best way to watch the tv miniseries of The Shining is to get the DVD and watch it straight through(4.5 hours),it's not even close to being as bad as others are saying.

I love both films but as stated Kubrick really took liberties with his version and from what I understand King was none to happy thus he was also the executive producer of the tv series so he could have the input and so it followed the book to a tee including hedge animals and the denver croquet mallet.

Reread the thread to make sure I hadn't mentioned it but if you like B class horror I'd suggest 1983's One Dark Night

Also if you like zombies and yet another drive-in B classic from way back check out Children Shouldn't Play With Dead things

As one who experiences sleep paralysis it's really not that terrifying once you understand the dynamic. Best explanation that I've read puts it as a state between REM and being awake, hence shadowy figures (more rare for me), flashing lights (more common for me), and a sense of dread are all the result of still being partially in a dream state combined with a hyper alert self defense system.

When it happens after a moment I'm able to recognize what's going on and keep myself calm until I can move. Of course as a kid it scared the crap out of me, so I can see why someone might wanna make a horror-doc.

Also helps that I've learned personal triggers and try to avoid them.

But a lot less scary when you realize its not aliens or other dark forces. :-)

Whether you buy into the scientific reasoning or not would depend on your supernatural beliefs. I'm sure for many people who choose faith over science, they probably think they're being visited by demons etc.

Anyway, i invited my little sister and nephew over to watch this several months ago (both teens). My wife had a few GF's over as well. Sadly, none of them could get into it.

Which is a bummer because i thought it was decent.
