    Re: Horror films, what's your favorite?

    One thing I don't understand is why Hollywood can make good vampire movies and some good ghost movies, but they are unable to make a good werewolf movie. Thoughts?

    Yeah, i wish they could !!
    what was that move where there were vampires, and werewolfs in it? I liked it, but it got bad reviews. I think it was made sometime early in 2000

    That was Underworld (or something like that) with Kate Beckensdale (purrrrrrrr). I saw the first one. Found the premise of the whole movie a bit silly with a lot of influence from White Wolfs 'Vampire, The Masqurade' and 'Werewolf' games.

    I think they need a *hot* guy playing the part.

    I liked the old classic The Werewolf (1956)

    The one with Lon Chaney? That ones a classic.

    One of my thesis papers I did in college was about lycanthropes and a big part of it was about how we now perceive the werewolf based upon that film.

    I agree. Although I did enjoy American Werewolf in London. It would be great to see a werewolf movie in the same vein as something like Bram Stoker's Dracula. I see Silver Bullet made it to the list-that was with the boy in the wheelchair, right?

    Also noticed I didn't see Van Helsing on the list- I wouldn't put it at the top, but I thought it was at least as entertaining as some of others listed. My sister-in-law called it Van Helstink, but I didn't hate it that much...

    Re: Horror films, what's your favorite?

    Just remembered one I didn't see on the list-
    The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I thought it had some good moments in it. Anyone else like that one?

    There was one called An American Haunting that I never got to see. Can anyone recommend it or is it not worth renting?

    I'm all about the classic horror like "Psycho", "The Birds" and the original "Night of the Living Dead".

    The Exorcism of Emily Rose was...ok, but you're right, some great moments in it. The scene where
    Spoiler
    her boyfriend wakes up and looks around for her only to find her all contorted on the floor...just thinking about it makes me feel creepy!
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,
