Check out the classic "The Omen" where Damien, son of Satan, goes on a killing rampage. Full film starts here:



Also, here is Omen II, where he continues as he grows up. Full film here:

Here are some Jaws type films from the 70's that are considered horror movies too. They are very interesting.

Orca (1977)

After witnessing his mate and child's death from Nolan's hands, Orca, the killer whale, goes on a rampage in the fishermen's harbor. Under the villagers' pressure, Nolan, Rachel and an Indian sail after the great beast, who will bring them on his own turf.

Trailer



Comment on YouTube:

I love those "horror" movies with animals as "protagonists",but, in my memories, "ORCA" was, among these movies, the most touching and the deepest which I have ever seen. The cry of pain of the male orca (when his family gets brutally murdered, i.e. captured, "fished" on board the fishing boat) is simply UNSPEAKABLE!


Full Movie

Part 1



The White Buffalo (1977)

In this strange western version of JAWS, Wild Bill Hickok hunts a white buffalo he has seen in a dream. Hickok moves through a variety of uniquely authentic western locations - dim, filthy, makeshift taverns; freezing, slaughterhouse-like frontier towns and beautifully desolate high country - before improbably teaming up with a young Indian named Crazy Horse to pursue the creature.

Do ya'all remember "Westworld" with Yul Brynner? Don't know if that classifies as horror, but I remember thinking it was a pretty cool, edge-of-your-seat movie back in the day.

I know I remember that movie! Wasn't Yul a robot or something like that? I also remember "Orca" and of course, "Omen I & II". I think of all of the (horror) films that I have seen, "Sixth Sense" was the best and "Devil's Advocate" is a close second.

Yeah I remember that one. It started out interesting, but I was a bit disappointed by how it developed. There was no logical reason given for the android's malfunction and murderous rampage. I think that film is categorized as science fiction though, not horror.

Here is the trailer for it.



Here is a gun dueling scene from it.

Here are some forgotten horror classics that are highly rated by horror film buffs on IMDB.

Don't Look Now (1973)

Don't Look Now is a 1973 thriller film directed by Nicolas Roeg. Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland star as a married couple whose lives become complicated after meeting two elderly sisters in Venice, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant and informs them that their recently deceased daughter is trying to contact them to warn them of danger. It is an independent British and Italian co-production, filmed in England and Italy, and adapted from the short story by Daphne du Maurier.

Full movie



The Asphyx (1973)

Hugo is a brilliant turn-of-the-century scientist-loved and respected by his family and friends, admired by his colleagues. But he is a man quickly becoming obsessed with a curious and frightening question... what is the mysterious apparition found in the photographs of his dying subjects? Hugo brings to a family boating party his newest invention-a motion picture camera. The party quickly turns into a disaster as he captures on film the tragic drowning of his wife and son. When the film is replayed later, the same ghostlike presence appears. It flies towards his son, and vanishes inside his dying body. Has Hugo discovered The Asphyx, the spirit of the dead described in Greek mythology? A spirit which lives in constant agony, not finding rest until it takes possession of a human body? Could the spirit, if captured, become the key to immortality? Hugo is compelled to find the answers. It is a ghoulish search, with eternally haunting results.

Full movie



Asylum (1972) Part 1 of 6

A young psychiatrist interviews four inmates in a mental asylum to satisfy a requirement for employment. He hears the following stories:

Segment 1: Frozen Fear: The revenge of a murdered wife.

Segment 2: The Weird Tailor: A tailor makes a suit with some highly unusual qualities.

Segment 3: Lucy Comes To Stay: A woman questions her sanity when it appears that her brother is conspiring against her.

Segment 4: Mannikins of Horror: A man builds tiny toy robots with lifelike human heads.

Full movie

Here are a bunch of old horror films I see on YouTube that look good. I don't have time to provide descriptions or titles, but the title of the movies should appear in the video thumbnail images below. I can't believe how many films there are that I've never heard of. lol

Check out these sick horror films called Sleepaway Camp, where a shy girl named Angela kills a ton of teens and kids, each one in a gruesome creative manner that looks so fake. It's so bad that it's good. A very morbid entertainment. I can't believe that back in the 80's, they could get away with showing kids getting killed one by one like that, whereas nowadays, it's too politically incorrect to show that in horror films.

In the first film, she's just a shy quiet teen. In the second, she's a camp counselor. The second one has a lot of nudity and sex scenes, but the uploader blackened them out, unfortunately. In the third one, she comes back and poses as a troubled inner city youth. I don't know what the fourth one is about though, but it's called "Return to Sleepaway Camp". Here they are in chronological order. The second film is in 8 parts though.




Part 1 of 8:

Ok I just saw some of these Halloween films. They are entertaining but annoying at the same time.

Here's what ticks me off.

Why is it that people in horror movies do the dumbest and most senseless things?

The police are always useless in horror movies and totally incompetent. Since they are not the heroes or protagonists, they don't get to be the ones who finish off the evil villain, so they always have to get distracted and be out of the way, or they get killed off too.

When dozens of people are killed in slasher movies, the few incompetent policemen around do nothing but get in the way or try to dismiss everything. They never think to call the national guard no matter how many are getting killed.

The cops in the Halloween and Friday the 13th films are dumber than dumb. Totally useless too. All they do is get in the way. Or get killed off.

Why is it that no one in horror movies knows how to turn on a light switch inside a building at night? Why do they always sit and walk around in the dark, even when doing normal routine tasks? That's very unsafe, esp in a public building. Do they not know what a light switch is? That's so cliched and annoying.

Why is it that no one knows how to lock a door in horror movies? In slasher movies, the killer gets into every house by simply opening the door, even when the residents know that there's a killer roaming around. Do locks not exist in horror movies?

Furthermore, killers in slasher movies seem to be able to teleport and walk like Kung Fu masters. They can appear out of nowhere, or be miles away and then suddenly appear out of nowhere. They can also walk up behind any character with no sound from their footsteps, like Kung Fu masters.

They also seem to be everywhere at once.

After a while, this gets too predictable and cliched.
