Atheist Horror Fanatics

You don't have to believe in the supernatural to love scary movies! Even if paranormal movies don't scare you, there are still many realistic movies [like those about serial killers] that will. If you love horror... this is your place!

I have seen a lot of horror movies that have nudity in it. Do you think it is that important to have nudity in horror movies? Is it important to the plot? Does it make any difference at all?Watch…Continue

I recently checked out the FIRST Mirrors movie and was delighted. It was based in the supernatural.. yes... but it was full of creepy images, nightmarish twists, and a treasure-trove of gore. It was…Continue

I have to say that the previous "Renaissance of Horror" in the 70's/80's was pretty awesome. John Carpenter movies (e.g. Halloween, The Thing, Nightmare on Elm Street", Phantasm, Clive Barker's "Hellraiser", etc. A great time for Horror.

Oh, yeah, one of my early fav set of comedy/horror - the Evil Dead Trilogy!

I have to say my fav movies (right now) are leaning towards the comedy/horror vein (although much of my DVD collection is horror movies). "From Dusk til Dawn" will always be on my fav list, as well as "Zombieland" (one of the funniest movies I've ever seen).

 

My all time fav horror flick is old-school - "The Exorcist - Director's Cut" (i.e. the one with about 20 min extra, including the scene where Reagan goes up the stairs on all fours, facing UP. This movie had a huge impact on me as a kid. It came out in 1973, and at first my parents refused to take me. Then they realized the books I was already reading were scary (Edgar Allan Poe - pretty much everything, as an example), so they took me. They didn't see the hype yet - people running from the theatre, etc. We went to a matinee (so if we had to leave it didn't cost as much), and I sat there enthralled, at 9yrs old. My mom had to leave the theatre, but I was hooked. After that I couldn't get enough.

 

I also think that my rational mind realized that the stuff I was seeing wasn't real - and I truly think this was the first seeds of my becoming an atheist. I rationalized that if you don't believe in fairies, ghosts, ghouls, possession, etc. then why believe in a deity? To me it's all or nothing - if you believe in a deity, you have to believe in the rest of it.

The Walking Dead season 2 premiere tonight! Perhaps a discussion thread afterwards?

Contagion is in theaters in the US right now. I saw it about a week ago and it is an excellent non-supernatural thriller. If you don't get scared by ghosts anymore.... try Contagion. Totally realistic... and when I was watching it, I felt my hands tighten up convulsively every time someone in the audience sneezed or coughed.

Watch this trailer!

LOVE HORROR! Guess what folks. Unfortunately, I got laid off. Fortunately, I have Netflix! I enjoy the gore and slashers (not like Jason, boring) from the 70's to the 80's. The effects are laughable in some but gruesome in others. Anyone have any great suggestions? Take care!

I love watching scary movies. I recently saw "Death of a Ghost Hunter". I think it is supposed to be based on a true story. Twenty years after minister Joseph Masterson and his family were slaughtered inside their home, noted ghost hunter Carter Simms (Patti Tindall) is offered $5,000 to investigate the residual paranormal activity in the house. It was creepy.
