The nice Newcastle ale drinking, Horror loving Scrivs got me thinking about the old Horror films i used to be addicted to when i was a yung un so i rooted around and compiled a wee list you just might want to check out if you haven't had the fortune to see these already.
Some are well known others not so but what they all share are balls, atmosphere, scary fun and sick practical gore!
Stuff these days like Hostel and Planet Terror are gory and daft but just don't do it for me! even though they try to emulate the very films I love that's maybee where they're going wrong!?
I don't know why but the only recent movies i can think of that remotely pushed any of my old horror buttons were The Orphanage and [REC].
No remakes or CG here my friends! just guys like Romero, Jackson, Bava, Gordon, Henenlotter, Cronenberg, Raimi and O'Bannon getting it very right!
So what were your favourites?
