Open Topic: What’s Your Favorite Horror Flick?

It’s Halloween! Obviously one of our favorite times of the year around here at the Skybound offices! And it’s the best time of the year to cozy up and watch a good, scary movie. Earlier this year we had the Skybound Staff weigh in on their favorites (check it out here), but we want to hear yours, TWD fans! It doesn’t have to be zombie flicks (though we do love us some Dawn of the Dead), just hit us with your faves down below and put a brief note to let us know why. Bonus points if it’s on Netflix!

We’ll pick one comment at random to receive either a PS4 code (North America-only) or XBox One code (Worldwide) for Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 1 AND Season 2!

UPDATE: The comment picked at random belonged to TechLife! Congrats! We’ve sent you an email to redeem your code.

    It’s so hard to pick one!!

    I do really love Cabin Fever. That makeout scene!!! If you haven’t seen it and don’t love it I don’t want to know you. Since that was the first thing that popped in my head I will go with that.

    If you are trying to experience the true brutality of humanity then watch FUNNY GAMES. It reinforces similar ideas that TWD does; such as: nobody can be trusted, there are no happy endings, you are never safe.

    “The Town That Dreaded Sundown”…..underrated film from early-70s and based on a true, unsolved series of murders in Texarkana, AR. Gave me nightmares for a long time as a kid….the “Phantom Killer” still freaks me out a little!

  7. Pizzaparty October 30, 2014 at 5:40 pm - Reply

    My favorite horror films have always been the classics, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Child’s Play. I think being raised on these makes me a bit biased. I find most of my modern needs are fulfilled with good tv. Oh how the times have changed.

    we all know the best horror movie is, Drum roll please… the blob with Steve Mcqueen

  9. Neutral-Grey October 30, 2014 at 6:05 pm - Reply

    Dead Silence.
    Return of the Living Dead.

    The former has puppets and I’ve always loved dolls in horror. And the latter is a damned fun zombie film.

      Seen the movie Annabelle yet? I haven’t seen it but I’m dying to!

      • Neutral-Grey November 1, 2014 at 2:24 am - Reply

        Yep! Not as scary as I was hoping, actually. :/

        This may be due to my vast overexposure to horror movies (at ages where this wasn’t a good thing) or it may have just been the hype. Heard it was supposedly sooo scary people walked out. Now, see. I can’t understand that. I saw both Insidiuous 1 and 2. The Conjuring. Sinister (my favorite of recent films). And Annabelle, I’d say wasn’t scarier than any of them.

        That’s just me being negative, though. It’s a good film! Fun in a morbid way like a good horror film should be and definitely worth some real creepiness. I just think some of the scared reactions I’ve heard are kind of ridiculous when comparing it other recent films and I’m not seeing where it’s better or worse.

    John Carpenter’s Halloween, because it’s the greatest horror flick of all time.

    my favorite would have to be the Original Halloween, can’t top the Classic ones in my book, then my 2nd would be original Texas Chainsaw Mass. then my 3rd fav. is a more modern, which is DEVIL’S REJECTS.

  12. rob.huthwaite October 30, 2014 at 6:29 pm - Reply

    All time classic for me is dawn of the dead original however most recent film to scare the sapoopy out of me has got to be V/H/S. Watching that on my own in my little room in china on my laptop…. i have never been that scared apart from losing 3 nights sleep from hear the noise in the japanese orinal of the grudge.

  13. Brandon Hillig October 30, 2014 at 6:38 pm - Reply

    I love Halloween 4 and Child’s Play!
    Don’t forget Dawn of the Dead! 🙂

    Night of the living dead. Nothing beats the classics.

  15. Ainsley October 30, 2014 at 7:16 pm - Reply

    Grudge is the scariest, watched it when I was about 13 and had nightmares for years haha, but any good zombie film I love, not necessarily scary but Zombieland and Shaun of the dead are my two favourites, terrible at horror movies haha

    I’ve always love anything based on Stephen King, so my favorite is deff “IT” and then it would have to be the original “Children of the Corn” and then non Stephen King horror I really love any thing by Romero and Carpenter. “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The HIlls Have Eyes” but of course the all time best horror movie is “Night of the Living Dead” by George A. Romero!!!@@

    The Howling. My dad and I used to rent this movie all of the time when I was little (7 or 8 years old). It used to scare the hell out of me but now makes me feel nostalgic.

    I would have to say the original Halloween, the whole series was great also!
    Some other honorable mentions would be the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist, Carrie, The Shining, I can keep going lol. Horror is one of, if not, my favorite genre. HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

    If it can only be one then it has to be a Takashi Miike film.

    And his best film is ‘Audition’…! Years ago all my friends at work (military) had borrowed my copy of it and were passing it around. One day at work I had a visit by the Base Commander and he simply walked up to me and said… “You are one sick individual.”, he then followed up quickly with “I’m going to watch your movie again tonight with the wife, then i’ll get it back to you.” (said with a smirk on his face) It appears the pilots upstairs had passed it all the way up the chain and he just wanted to let me know he was going to keep it a little longer.

    “Heavy metal musician and horror movie director/actor Rob Zombie admitted he found this movie to be the most creepy and unsettling of any horror movie he’s ever watched.” – as if that isn’t enough reason to see it on Netflix tonight?

    The slow lead in just enhanced the movie more in mine and others eyes. A must see!

    House on Haunted Hill (1959) starring the master of the macabre, Vincent Price! Can’t beat Price on Halloween. You just can’t.

  24. RhenaB October 31, 2014 at 9:51 pm - Reply

    Arsenic and Old Lace (Cary Grant) Quite old. Not really scary, but it is considered horror.

    Shaun of the Dead
    Cockneys Vs Zombies
    Dracula with Bela Lugosi

    So many more.

    Jeez, where to start?

    Night of the Living Dead was the start to my favorite genre so it’s gotta be here.
    Dawn of the Dead is pure awesome sauce. “Burt Reynolds!”
    Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street are staples I grew up on.
    Saw is legendary, especially the first one.
    Hellraiser. Need I say more?
    Zombie’s remake of Friday, an homage to the obsolete slasher flick, I really enjoyed. Yell blasphemy if you must, but I liked it. Same with the remake of TTCM.
    House of 1000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects are awesome too!
    Shawn of the Dead and Zombieland get an honorable mention though really not horro per se.
    So many more but that’s the top picks in my book.

    CATS EYES – I watched this movie while at a sleepover at my cousin’s when I was like 7 or 8 years old and was terrified to go to sleep for a month thinking a troll was going to suck my life force out of my mouth. You wouldn’t think a movie focused on a tabby cat would be that scary but I was horrified!

    The exorcist because it’s scary as duck. And the silence of the lambs. For the Hannibal lecture escape scene.

  28. JaseYANG November 1, 2014 at 3:42 am - Reply

    Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Poltergeist, Childs Play, etc… basically all the old school Horror Films

    cinderella, old school horror movie

    Salem’s Lot freaked me out in fifth grade. I came into school and my friends were like “what the Hell, why is a priest helping vampires!”
