8 Responses to Your Top 10 Horror votes…all of them

  1. Fletch says:

    By the way – Fox, you’re my hero for having Basket Case on your list. Back in high school, a friend of mine and I made it through BC 1, 2, 3, and who knows how many others. They’re wonderfully awful movies.

  2. Jason Soto says:

    I know there’s that whole thing of what movies people think fall in what genre and I can maybe understand some of those picks, but I really don’t get how Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire to be horror movies. I can kinda sorta see maybe Twin Peaks but that’d even be pushing it.
    -Jason

  3. Fletch says:

    I hear ya. Seeing Shaun of the Dead caught me off guard. If that’s not a plan and simple comedy, nothing is.

  4. Shaun of the Dead is pretty comedic most of the way through, but we must admit it drops the laughs in its last thirty minutes and becomes particularly horrific when they’re trapped in the bar. There’s nothing funny at all about Shaun having to deal with killing his own zombiefied mother. That said: Mulhooland Dr. and Inland Empire as Horror movies? Horrible, but not horror. Eraserhead though–definately horror.

  5. Fox says:

    Thanks Fletch. I ran through the Basket Case trilogy one after the other as well. I was pretty disappointed in the second and third installments, but I still like them. Nothing touches me like the original though… it’s sloppy, sad, bizarre, funny… I just love it.

    And let me get in here on the Inland Empire discussion. I can totally understand why someone would include it as a horror film. Maybe I wouldn’t personally classify it as such, but it did make me think that David Lynch could do a great job directing horror. And I gotta say, some of those scenes scared me more than anything else I’ve seen in years.

    But in the end – as Fletch often brings up when we debate these lists – everyone is gonna have their own requirements in defining a genre. I often like humor in my horror films, and I know some friends that would argue that that kills it for them. So be it.

  6. Matt says:

    I’ve noticed some questioning of my Mulholland Drive pick. In my defense, that was the first David Lynch film I’d ever seen and my friends had told me nothing about the movie but that it would mess with my mind. It did. And it did it so thoroughly that I was questioning reality for days and days and days. I agree it’s not a traditional horror film, but it horrified the bajeebus out of me. Therefore, it made my list.

  7. Ibetolis says:

    How did I end up voting for the Tale of Two Sisters – twice! I mean I like the film, it’s damn scary, but not that much. Doh!

  8. * (asterisk) says:

    For me, Lynch’s most horror film is FWWM — and it’s the best horror film ever, for me. Lynch is a master of the horror genre, subverting its traditions so much that people don’t even realize it!

    Good lists all round, though.
