I'd go sleep in my car after just the events of the first hour...by the end of it, the protagonists were so dense and even unlikable, I was rooting for the ghost/demon/evil spirit. At some point in certain horror films, characters can start acting like people continually climbing into a lion cage at the zoo. Lion gonna lion, ghost gonna ghost, demon gonna demon. Get out of the house.

Lots of great titles being thrown out and here but at the moment for me it would be a toss up between The Strangers and Hereditary

My pick based off of what was said would be Get Out. I enjoyed seeing this so much at the movie theater that i went a second time and it was a completely different movie. You can watch it 100 times and still find stuff you didn't catch before.

I would also like to mention two that haven't been on the list

Maniac (2012) and Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)

All three of the films you mentioned are excellent and I'm happy to own them. Maniac, in particular, doesn't get nearly enough love.

Disclosure: I didn't really get into horror flicks until this decade, so the 00's for this genre is mostly a blind-spot for me.

One of these films that got me into horror is V/H/S/2. Is it the best? probably not, but it is my favorite. I had so much fun with this film.

The Others was a great horror film and for all the reasons you listed. I remember walking out of the theater at the time thinking "I wonder when I can buy that on DVD"! Such a great film on DVD, Blu-ray and I won't hesitate to pick up a 4K disc in the future (assuming there will be).

Horror is not my genre. But it looks like I'm going to have to watch The VVitch and probably It Follows and Martyrs too (even the poster for Martyrs looked like it is too much for me).

Saw was an experience for me, I haven't seen any of the sequels, but man that first one was edge of your seat. I liked The Ring in a 'gadzooks let's hope I don't have to watch that movie again' sort of way. The Blair Witch Project was just out of the 20 year range, that one stuck with me.

Since I can't remember The Ring perfectly well, I think I'm still gonna choose it because it's fun and scary and takes you on a mystery that pays off in the end with the scary girl actually getting someone, but maybe I should actually say It Follows. You don't know what the hell it is trying to get them, but's scary as ****, a lot of it being because you don't know what it is, and the dread of it coming and getting you, the dread of it getting close, the dread of not knowing what it is or what it will do...plus, great characters and the story, maybe that's the best.

I am bewildered. But my two close friends also liked it. I felt it was a movie where nothing happened. The best part was what the voice said at the end, but even that was just not something as scary as like a demon or a vvitch or an "it" out to get you, and coming so close!

Why did you think that about The Babadook?

I can't see it mentioned but I think Drag Me To Hell is a masterpiece. And that ending. I'll go with that

But I do agree with Martyrs. I revisit it every year as its just a film I have to see to believe kind of thing.

The Hills Have Eyes is also great on the gore along with mutated monsters.

Because the Babadook comes on like a ghost/spooky demon movie, only to reveal itself as a metaphor for grief and guilt...the things people don't talk about but haunt them, tearing them apart, and the resolution of guilt and grief isn't trying to obliterate them, but to accept them and find peace. And it's pretty scary and frightening at times.

Sometimes, our favorite genre films are like a magic act, distracting you with one hand, while the other hand is doing something else, and that's the hand that's really doing the trick. Babadook is exactly like that -- distracting you pretending to be a film about a dark frightening presence, when the film is really about the psychological wounds of the two lead characters.

Liam Gavin's A Dark Song shares similarities with The Babadook. Love them both.

One of the plot points in the movie was that the Demon doesn't stop following the protagonist regardless if she changed location or not; hence why she continued to be haunted after the events in her prior life when implicitly her home was burned down by the demon.

The Descent. Can't think of many other monster movies that are suspenseful before the monster shows up.

She could have just bought a case of this...

Ok, but I thought the monster itself was dumb. A top hat wearing all black man? What is that? It wasn't a ghost. It hadn't been human before. It wasn't a demon. What demon is like a man in a top hat? And it really is the stupidest idea for a monster because, again, what monster is like a man in a top hat? The emotional stuff didn't resonate with me. I don't know what guilt there even was for the two leads. And it ended with them feeding the monster which means feeding their grief and guilt was the solution according to you. Wtf?!
