Think quite a few scene are excellent in the omen trilogy,
Also think 70s was best era for proper horror.

70s all day long because thatís when film where proper films and horror was horror at its best.

Jaws
Omen
Exorcist
Tcm
Halloween
Dont look now
Suspiria
Dawn of the dead
Wicker man
Phantasm
Carrie
Black Christmas
Salemís lot
Hills have eyes

List is quite endless tbh

They had proper,
Atmosphere
Tension
Storyline
And a decent atmospheric score to match the film,

They really donít make horrors like they use to same applies for films in general .

I disagree. Never like sweeping statements like that.

The studio blockbusters may be sanitized crap but they DO make films as good as they made in the seventies or any era.

For example, Sam Mendes 1917 is as good as any war film from any decade as is Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

And i'll bet i can give you similar examples of recent movies from any genre.

Well said, Dem. If you consider films from The Shape of Water to Hereditary, A Quiet Place to Prevenge, Bone Tomahawk to A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Witch to Under the Shadow, Train to Busan to Get Out, the last decade has been full of inventive, exciting, and memorable genre films.

Even recent (ish) werewolf films Late Phases and Wer are close to the classics from the 80's and would certainly make a revised Top 10 Tuesday list, in my opinion.

They may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really rate The Invitation, Green Room, The Girl with All the Gifts, It Follows, Us and The Babadook, Raw, We Are Still Here, Don't Breathe, and The Love Witch, mostly all original, beautifully made and critically acclaimed films.

It may not be original, but I was very impressed with the Soska sisters remake/reimagining of David Cronenberg's Rabid; American Mary is an excellent horror film.

I don't like all the films you listed but they are certainly original and that's a good thing. The Girl With All the Gifts was f*cking superb if you'll pardon my French.

And i agree about both Soska sisters films. Rabid probably got made because of it's title but it's not exactly what i would call a remake of Cronenberg's film, it's a different beast altogether. I also agree that American Mary is excellent.

I'd agree with the above about films being just as good now. Except maybe for comedies. It might be just my sense of humor or perhaps I haven't seen enough of the right ones but I only ever find myself amused at best rather than laughing out loud.

Anyone care to recommend any I might not have seen?

EDIT: Sorry to go off topic. Just to pull it back a really good death scene and shocking for the time was the lady burning to death at the end of Kiss Me Deadly
