it's Scream for me
Just re-watched The People Under The Stairs and it's a lot of fun
A Nightmare on Elm Street
The People Under the Stairs
The Hills Have Eyes
The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)
All good stuff with the exception of those last two. Is Shocker worth watching? It's been on my list for a minute
There's some good gore in the HHE remake, from what I remember
Watched both remakes within the past year or so for a podcast and I'd say the first one is okay, creepy and effective at least, but the second one was a turd and a half
It’s a Scream baby!…hold on a sec, I’ll be right back..
gotta be Scream
It'd have to be The People Under the Stairs for me, I know A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream are the more influential efforts of his but I just adore the social commentary that TPUS has while it manages to be highly entertaining at the same time.
Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street are excellent.
The Hills Have Eyes is pretty good but pretty B-movie.
Music of the Heart is solid middle-of-the-road Oscar stuff with a dependably really good Meryl Streep performance.
Vampire in Brooklyn mostly sucks. Wes wanted to make a comedy and Eddie wanted to make a horror movie and it doesn't end up being much of either.
I still have a LOT to see from him.
Scream and NOES are 2 of my favorite horror films of all time. I watched Scream so many times the year after it came out that I could practically recite the entire movie.
Had no idea he directed Red Eye
I really enjoyed Red Eye growing up, don't remember too much about it though
My siblings let me watch The People Under The Stairs when I was way too young for it and I loved that movie as a kid lol
The People Under The Stairs is probably one of the best fuck yous to the Reagan years ever put to film. Also, I feel like New Nightmare deserves more love than it gets, it’s a fantastic meta horror movie and the theme of not being able to escape your past using Heather, Robert, and Wes being haunted by Freddy both figuratively and literally is brilliant.
Wholly agree with you on both of those films.
The stylistic differences between New Nightmare and Scream are so drastic given the fact they're only separated by 2 years. Like, New Nightmare holds such an 80s vibe whereas Scream is so obviously 90s.
Red Eye is super underrated. An excellent thriller.
That is the case with a lot of early nineties media though, don't think some realize how much of the 80s seeped into the 90s.
Scream set the standard for the rest of the 90’s and well into the early 2000’s, so many movies chased that formula.
Had a lot of fun revisiting the Scream franchise this week
The fact that Craven as a director was able to basically re-invent horror at least three times in different decades during his career is mindblowing. A true loss that will never be replaced. Enough things have been said about NOES/Scream1+2/Hills, and it's hard for me to pick a favorite at this point (probably leaning towards Scream 1/2).
Maybe due to my relationship and what we have bonded over together, but I have a deep love for his later work especially My Soul to Take and Scream 4.
