I didn't see a horror movie thread, so being that it's Shocktober I figure I make one and see if it works. Basically post about any horror movies you've seen and recommend them or warn us to stay away. I've seen a bunch this month already ( probably because my wife and I started our horror movie run half a month early this year) so it's list time.
The Last Exorcism II - 2 out of 5, Better than the first but that's not saying much IMO, had some good creepiness to it but wow that ending was just the worst and made no sense.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark - 2 out of 5, Not terrible but could have done more. The ending sort of just ended without anyone noticing, even the actors.
Dark Skies - 4 out of 5, not the scariest alien invasion movie you'll see but it did a good job with how it dealt out the scares/
The Ward - 2 out of 5, this was pretty boring, but it had an interesting story once they reveal how things work.
Dark Water - 3 out of 5, carried by Jennifer Connely's performance, needed more scares but was good.
Grave Encounters - 3 out of 5, Basically Blair Witch Project in an Asylum, had some good scares.
The Pact - 2 out of 5 interesting but sort of meh.
Lovely Molly - 4 out of 5, thought it was really creepy at parts with great tension and dread throughout the whole movie.
The Awakening - 2 out of 5, a pretty good plot, with good ideas but just not enough scares.
Chernobyl Diaries - 3 out of 5, had good ideas, built a lot of tension, wanted a bit more but was happy it wasn't bad.
The Bay - 4 out of 5, good movie, had such a great tone to it. I'm a fan of found footage when it's done smart like this. I wanted a better ending but it made sense.
For reference on my taste, my top favorite horror movies are The Exorcism, The Blair Witch Project and Rosemary's Baby.
