Question Your Favourite Horror Film from 1991

1991 was a year for very few(!) brilliant horror films, but which one is your favourite? What makes it special to you? When did you first see it? Would you recommend it to the uninitiated?

Sometimes it's a hard decision to just pick one film (even when you're limiting it to a single year!), but my favourite film of 1991 is...

The People Under the Stairs - Wes Craven

Not only my favourite from 1991, but also my favourite Craven horror film, The People Under the Stairs is a fresh, original film and compared to most other horror films released in 1991; a masterpiece!

Trailer:

Afraid of the Dark

People under the stairs is awesome. I only saw it recently, but I loved it. whats not to love about a crazy guy in a gimp suit chasing young kids around a weird trap filled house.

I'm tempted to say the horror/ comedy/ musical Nudist Colony of the Dead... seriously, if you haven't seen it, you are missing out on a truly terrible, but funny experience.

I agree with The People under the Stairs... Everitt McGill is SCARY in it.

Special mention must go to Shock "em Dead for three reasons: the band name Spastik Colon and the other two reasons are Traci Lords.

Even though I'd say VFB was one of Fulci's weakest films, it's still a lot better than the majority of crap released in the '90s.

Agreed. It's one of those films like THE HOUSE OF CLOCKS and THE SWEET HOUSE OF HORRORS that have an interesting story and you cant help but wonder what he would have done if he had made them years earlier.

What a cracking poster you have thumbnailed for People..Stairs, Bizarre eye.

Was it painted by Rick? as it has absolutely nothing to do with the film.

I think it's the cover for the US DVD - not too dissimilar to the UK one really.

But yes, Universal did really know how to miss-sell the film to the blind-buying DVD market!

In 1991 there really only was one film The Silence of the Lambs

An excellent serial killer film that builds up tension as it goes along. It could well be my film of the nineties.
