My FAVOURITE horror flick would probably be The Exorcist....but the one that made me first wet myself was one from the 70's called Chosen Survivors about vampire bats attacking people in an underground military base. I was just a wee tyke when I saw it and couldn't sleep for weeks.
Would love to find that flick on DVD......for nostalgia.

My FAVOURITE horror flick would probably be The Exorcist . . .

Strange how people view things differently. Two “controversial” films I never actually got to see when they were released; one was A Clockwork Orange and the other The Exorcist. Since then, thanks to film 4, I’ve managed to catch up them and to say I was disappointed would be a major understatement. Frankly I thought them both dreadful.

Amazon have it with "The Earth Dies Screaming"
I knew this was a mistake; my grip on reality's not too good at the best of times. Glitz, in "The Ultimate Foe"

I have to wonder if Film4 showed the full versions....
I found Clockwork Orange a bit bizarre for my liking......but you do have to keep in mind these flicks were made some 30 years ago. At the time the Exorcist was released, it was truly ground-breaking (same year as Deep Throat I believe....what a wonderful year to be enjoying the cinema!).

Still....to each their own, I guess.

A Clockwork Orange I wouldn't even call a horror...if that's where you were going. Frankly, I fought my way through for sake of the experience. The Exorcist will always be a classic but by today's standard has quite a large 'B' factor to it. I personally found Exorcist 3 to be the best of that series for actual thrill/scare appeal. If you want to be disappointed. Try watching the second in the Exorcist series... ....that sucked.

If you want a good cringe. Go see "The Dark Knight" at your local theater. If the Joker's disappearing pencil trick doesn't make you wince...you're not human.

I went to see A Clockwork Orange, but it's media fuelled notoriety preceded it; by the time I got to the cinema the queue was almost literally a mile long. I gave up and went home, thinking I'll catch it the next time around, but of course Kubrick then had his hissy fit and withdrew it, and I never did.

No it's not horror, just complete tosh.


PS
As an aside, has anyone else seen Lindsay Anderson's If?

It was mentioned in a thread about horror movies.... didn't think it was that much of a stretch to assume it was implied.

...................................
From Websters:

hor·ror –noun 1. an overwhelming and painful feeling caused by something frightfully shocking, terrifying, or revolting;
...................................

After reading the above "A Clockwork Orange" may very well could be considered a horror film. Have you seen the film Anthony?

You are in the intermission forum, it is always a stretch to assume a post would be on topic :)

Could be painful. Try a larger size of jeans.

From what I have seen most of you have ruined your childhood memories of these scarey movies by seeing them again as an adult thus giving you a totally different / revised point of view. I still remember seeing a B-style movie called Gargoyles, where a colony of gargoyles lived inside of some cave just outside of some God forsaken town in the middle of nowhere. I have never seen the film again, but still get chills when the gargoyle landed on top of the guys truck.

I also watched Aliens (not the original Alien) when I was about 8 years old. My brother was 6 at the time, and I remember him fidgiting on the edge of the couch as the people approached that thing in the tube. About the time the "face-sucker" lept at the glass my uncle's cat spotted my brothers hand, and attacked. OMG! I jumped at the scare, but my bro nearly had to change his shorts. I have never let him live down that girlish yelp!
I long for a better world. One in which a chickens motives will not be questioned when mearly crossing the road.

I saw Gargoyles about 4 years ago.....it isn't bad as far as 'B' movies go.
