Default Introducing a newbie to Classic Horror!

Next week, I'm going to meet an old friend of mine. He's quite a bit into Horror movies, but mainly modern horror la Saw or Hostel.

That's why I will introduce him to some nice old Horror movies from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I'm pretty sure he knows Argento only by name, and Fulci sounds like an Italian sausage to him. So it's about time for him to dig into some real nice old-fashioned Horror.

We will be spending almost a whole day together, so there should be time for at least six to seven Horror classics. As I dont want to be too obtrusive, I will let him choose the films from the list below after having given him a short introduction to each movie!

Feel free to comment on this plan of mine, or on my very subjective list of flicks. He's not faint-hearted, so I've chosen - among many classics - some pretty heavy stuff.

I will post again by the end of next week - telling you about his (or more precisely: our) reactions. The bigger your interest in this thread, the bigger my final report.

The list:
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Witchfinder General
Pieces
Maniac
The New York Ripper
The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue
Deep Red
Inferno
Tenebrae
Phenomena
City of the Living Dead
The Beyond
A Bay Of Blood
Night of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead
The Evil Dead
Nightmare City
The Burning
Nightmare Beach
Zombie Flesh Eaters
The Prowler


Im also thinking of picking one modern Horror movie from the following:
Piranha 3D
Storm Warning
Switchblade Romance
Mother of Tears
Wolf Creek
Cabin Fever


Greetings!

I'm hoping he picks:

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Tenebrae
City of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead
The Evil Dead
The Burning

Switchblade Romance


Pretty much 90% of my mates hate horror, so horror viewing tends to be with the wife or on my own!

For the classics I'd go with:

Witchfinder General
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Deep Red
Dawn of the Dead
The Evil Dead
Zombie Flesh Eaters

For modern-day horror:

Piranha 3D

Like Darth, most of my friends wouldn't give classic horrors the time of day (too boring, not gory enough & old-fashioned).So, I usually end up watching them on my own.

Sounds like a lost cause to me . . .

I discovered horror myself at a young age. No one told me what to watch and for a long time I thought I was the only person that had heard of fulci, argento. If someone had told me I had to watch certain films I might not have enjoyed them as much. We also should remember that the horrors of today will be the horrors of tomorrow. Saw and Hostel have a cult following and in twenty years perhaps shameless or arrow will release these on some new hologram format.

It's not that he doesn't want to watch old Horror movies - he simply doesn't know too much about them, and I want to fill this knowledge gap of his.

He normally buys his movies in big stores - he doesn't import anything, and most of his friends aren't into Horror either. That's why he's one of the Saw and Hostel generation - even girls watch those flicks today.

Greetings!
