Last minute horror suggestions (or for general impact any evening)

1. The Tenant (1976) – Scarier than Rosemary’s Baby. Might cure you of apartment buildings.

2. Duel (1971) – When did filmmakers stop using the unknown?

3. Near Dark (1987) – Vulnerability is always a nice addition to horror villains. A great film.

4. Session 9 (2001) – Modern horror at its best, without a reliance on gore.

5. Rituals (1977) – When I was rather young, this movie scared the living shit out of me. A blatant Deliverance rip-off, but worth a look.

6. The Mothman Prophecies (2002) – I’m not joking. This movie did indeed contain moments that scared me. Then again, maybe you shouldn’t be taking movie advice from an amateur UFO nut.

7. The Vanishing (1988 – the original) – I’ve always had a problem with how this movie left me feeling in the end, but I respect it.

8. A Friend Like Harry (2000) – I don’t know. Just see it.

9. The Exorcist III (1990) – Best third sequel ever made.

10. The Changeling (1980) – George C. Scott’s great freak-out period of 1979 – 1981.

11. The Last House on the Left (1972) – Just keep thinking “1972.”

12. The Thing (1982 – remake) – When John Carpenter was being interviewed for Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments, he was wearing a band-aid over his recently removed forehead mole.
