    You're a bit late for official discussions - this movie came out 12 years ago.


    Nonetheless, congrats on seeing your first horror movie. There's so much better than this though.

    Here's some movies to get you started:

    Carrie
    IT
    The Exorcist
    Hellraiser (1-4)
    The Zombie Trilogy (Night, Dawn, and Day Of The Dead)
    The Howling
    The Thing (John Carpenter remake)
    Audition
    Puppet Master (not to be confused with "The Puppet Masters")
    Creepshow 1 and 2
    Them
    Nightbreed
    Candyman 1 and 2
    From Dusk Til Dawn
    Cabin Fever
    Suspiria
    The Amityville Horror (original)
    Halloween (just the first - original, although the Rob Zombie remake isn't half bad)
    Nightmare On Elm Street (just the first)
    The Omen
    The Howling
    The Lost Boys
    Bram Stoker's Dracula
    The Blair Witch Project (good for one-time viewing)
    Evil Dead II
    Dead Alive
    Phantasm (just the first)
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)
    Slither
    Psycho (original)
    House Of 1000 Corpses
    An American Werewolf in London
    Saw (the first is the best, but the others have some original killings)
    Hostle 1 and 2
    Poltergeist
    Jacob's Ladder
    Rosemary's Baby
    Seven
    It's Alive
    Cannibal Holocaust (not as much horror as completely disgusting!)
    The Ring (preferably the Japanese version, called Ju-On, although the US version isn't bad)
    Nosferatu (1922 silent movie - just plain creepy)
    Friday The 13th 1 and 2
    Alien
    Aliens
    The Blob (1980s remake)
    Darkness Falls
    Final Destination (just the first)
    Ghost Ship
    Shocker
    The Brood
    The Shining
    Freaks
    Sleepaway Camp

    That should get you started. Keep in mind that these are just my personal favs, as someone who's watched horror for 30 years (started when I was six). I make no implication that others, or yourself, will like them. It's all personal taste.

    I didn't want to start to fast. I liked the movie I thought it was.....funny (which is kind of strange cause it felt like a parody) I also saw Jeepers Creepers which I hated cause I felt stupider after I watched it and that remake of prom night I have no comment on that. The reason why I never seen one before was when I was younger I was in a holloween store with my parents and I bumped into a talking statue of Freddy Kruger.

    You have time, no need to start fast. I just made some suggestions based on personal favs and my DVD collection. Take them as you will.

    Just don't use the Scream movies as a basis for horror - they aren't that great.

    If you want to see truly scary movies then I suggest you start with The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror (original), and The Shining. If you want to ease into the genre then start with the slasher films (Friday the 13th, Halloween, etc.). They aren't so much scary as entertaining. Same goes for the gore/comedy route like Evil Dead and Dead Alive - easy to get into, pure entertainment.

    I'm watching a lot of Asian horror at the moment, awesome creepy, if you don't mind subtitles.

    Well, that's because the Scream movies kinda were parodies of the '80s slasher flicks that had devolved into self-parodies. Much of the humor centers around the 'rules' of those kinds of horror movies, without venturing into lowest common denominator/Scary Movie territory. It's a bad place to start, not because they're not enjoyable movies, but because much of the enjoyment comes from already having seen a dozen or two Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers movies.
