    I've seen all but Ils... but like you said these are more thriller than horror.
    Ils sounds more like horror, I have to see that one.

    I think they're all still generally considered "horror movies", mainly due to the fact that they're all particularly brutal and all have a very unflinching, pull-no-punches attitude toward their depiction of graphic, on-screen violence

    Some stuff I'm going to have to consider checking out. Never even heard of La Meute... interesting.
    OK.. a list off the top of my head.

    Antichrist (not true horror.. .more total brutal emotionally crushing art film... absolutely beautiful)
    Cannibal Holocaust
    Mountain of the Cannibal God (I'll limit this list to 2 cannibal movies)
    Anthropopophagus (awesome!)
    Cemetery Man (horror comedy)
    the Sect (same director as above, but more spooky Dario style)
    Shock (slow moving, but I stand by it having the scariest 2 seconds on film.. for me anyway)
    Changeling (80's Canadian horror)
    Cat People
    Mystics in Bali (floating heads.. yeah!)
    the Beyond
    City of the Living Dead

    ahh.. .that's all for now.. A bunch from others post as well. [rec], Audition, Haute Tension, Riki-oh

    I'm huge fan of horror movies. But I prefer ghost/spirit story rather than monster/zombie but 28days later is one of my favorite.
    You should watch The Eye (Hongkong movie) Best and Scariest asian horror movie.
    Here are some of my list:
    - The Eye
    - The Ring trilogy
    - What lies beneath
    - Stir of echoes

    This is definitely worth a watch, well done, loads of fun, and funny.
    It's a mash up of a load of different films, but yeah, good stuff indeed.

    This is funny, you pretty much suggested everything I would have suggested.

    If you enjoyed Antichrist make sure to see Zulawski's "Possession", it's the original art house hysterical-woman-as-monster horror. Both films on par with each other in terms of style and strength of script, which is saying a lot. Both also have brilliant performances by their lead actresses.

    Fulci's Gates of hell trilogy (beyond/city/house) is pretty much quintessential Horror.... I also enjoy some of fulci's more obscure and lesser watched films as well...'don't torture a duckling' and 'manhattan baby' come to mind. Zombi 2 is worth watching for the shark vs zombie scene alone. New York ripper also scarred me (eye scene killed me). Fulci is king.

    80s for sure. I haven't seen Anthropophagous 2000, but I've seen stills.
    I love the look of that film. A friend described it as having mud on the lens.

    @evilrabbitry
    I'll have to check out Possession. I was actually just looking at the jacket trying to figure out if I've seen it a couple of days ago. *edit* I just looked again, and I have seen it. Yup. It's a good one. I didn't think to connect it to Antichrist, but now I see where you are coming from.

    Folci sure has a thing for eyeball. :lol: I've enjoyed some of his later stuff, but the trilogy is by far my favorite.
    When you mentioned the shark vs zombie scene it made me remember a subgenra of horror/thriller/action that I didn't mention. A total favorite of mine... really crappy... GIANT ANIMALS!
    Mega Shark VS Giant Octopus was a big letdown.. (kinda what I wanted ha ha..)
    Warbirds
    [​IMG]
    totally unwatchable.
    Boa. Now Boa I actually liked. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0250613/ Giant snake unthawed from the icecap when digging a underground super prison. fun.

    Is La Meute out on DVD in Europe? I've been wanting to see it. I've somehow managed to miss it in a few places.

    I don't think so, also missed it on the big screen.

    In that case, I command you to to go forth and watch MEGAPIRANHA! It has giant fish leaping out of the sea and crashing into buildings.

    OK, that looks great. Just watched the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFhSogGnu4I
    Probably some of the most unnatural CG motion for a fish ever! ha ha

    For anyone who wasn't already tricked, do your best to avoid Piranha 3D. I give it a big 2 thumbs waaay down. I blame Rue Morgue magazine for makeing it sound good to me. I also blame Taranteno for makeing hollywood think they have any business messing around with B genre films.
    Anyway, I guess that's my opinion. Most people seemed to like it.

    Then I think it did it's job. The same friend I mentioned before calls Cannibal Holocaust his #1 feel bad movie. :lol: I think it does a really good job of delivering that awful feeling.
    Right now nothing I've seen actively bothers me, but there was a time when I would have unwatched a few movies. Ginnie Pig 2, Evil Dead Trap, and The Man Behind the Sun. Though the Man Behind the Sun was more due to info I found out after the fact. I guess I'd unwatch Paranah 3D, Star Wars episode 1 etc., but that's for other reasons! :lol:

    I've always wanted to see Fulci's 'Beyond' since I saw a clip on that Bravo 100 scariest movies. It's a hard dvd to score (cheaply). Was just on ebay and bought a used copy for 10.

    Absolutely! The first time a watched it I was laying in bed and my wife was asleep. I had to wake her up because I didn't want to be "alone". The pulsing lights and sounds mixed with nightmarish mask make one of the scariest moments in movie history.

    I dunno if it's Horror, but it's definitely pretty creepy. I love the movie Jacob's Ladder.

    I usually can't watch scary movies at all, I'm a pretty big coward. But a lot of these sound interesting and I might have to check some of them out :)

    I enjoy Fulci's giallos (Don't Torture a Duckling, Lizard in a Woman's Skin, New York Ripper) as much as his other more known films. What I have yet to see but will get around to watching, hopefully this week, is A Cat in the Brain.

    I'm also a long-time fan of Bill Lustig's Maniac, Romero's Martin, and pretty much everything Argento.

    Don't Torture a Duckling is Excellent
    Martin Is still the best modern day vampire movie
    Manic Is a completely Badass insane trip also has the best poster of all time

    My wife and I decided to take this one down when we had our son..... When would be a good age to put this one back up with minimal scarring?

    That poster is morbidly unforgettable. I was 11-12 when I first saw Maniac on VHS, on a bootleg copy that did not have any poster art on the cover. That was around the same time I saw Cronenberg's Rabid and The Brood for the first time.

    I think it was initially on Anchor Bay but mine is a reissue (?) on Blue Underground. A 30th year anniversary 2-disc edition came out recently with added bonus material.
