The horror genre is one of my very favorite genres in books, tv, and movies. I especially enjoy supernatural horror stories as compared to horror that humans do towards humans. A scary ghost story will always give me the goosebumps and creep me out.
My list of favorite scary ghost movies include;
The Grudge; The Conjuring; The Haunting; Thirteen Ghosts; Poltergeist;
The Shining; Silent Hill; Insidious; The Conjuring 2; 1408; The Amityville Horror
On the FX Cable network, my wife and I thoroughly enjoy the seasons in which ghosts play a major role in that season's stories.
American Horror Story: Murder House, AHS: Hotel, and also AHS 1984 have all been very entertaining and they sometimes have plot twists that I don't see coming.
Vampire and werewolf horror stories are also among my something I can really get into. Both in big screen movies as well as on TV, there have been a LOT of vampire and werewolf stuff I have always enjoyed. Vampire Diaries, and the The Originals were great with lots and lots of entertaining episodes.Personally speaking, I was entertained a lot more by "The Originals" than I was by "Vampire Diaries."
I ain't much of a fan of the Twilight saga of movies. I would much rather watch the vampires and werewolves found in movies from the "Underworld" series.
Brahm Stroker's Dracula movie (1992) was an excellent adaptation of Stroker's novel.
The first "Lost Boys" movie a couple of decades ago is truly a guilty pleasure for me. It is one of the better vampire movies out there in my book.
With werewolves, I also liked The Howling series. Good, but not great werewolf films.
I give a big thumbs up to An American Werewolf in London.
Dog Soldiers has very good special effects and lots of exciting action.
Brotherhood of the Wolf has a different take than most werewolf movies, but I got to admit that my wife and I both give two thumbs up.
Red Riding Hood (2011 film) was surprisingly good. Y'all ought to give that movie a try because I guarantee its better than what many critics have said about it on the internet.
Blood & Chocolate was a film that was controversial for many people. However, when my wife and I watched that movie on dvd a few years ago, I found that the story was very interesting. That movie has good acting and it is definitely worth watching if you like werewolf movies.
Any of the rest of y'all have the guilty pleasures of enjoying well made vampire, werewolf, or scary ghost movies?
