I have seen lots of movies, especially horror, comedy and thriller movies; however, only few can satisfy me, in any.

I am waiting for someone telling me some good movies.

And here are some recommend by me-Shutter(from Thailand) Shocked and Saw(from America) Shocked . They are really cool!!! You should go and check them out.

Since I knew that Saw2 are coming out, I have been looking forward to it for a long long time. I hope it will not let me down. As you know the first episode is also the best.

i've watched "the cube", it's a really good psycho thriller, but i don't like too hard thrillers so maybe it's too "soft" for you.. Wink

I agree with you - 'Shutter' is a really good horror/thriller!

If you've seen that, then you've probably seen 'The Ring' and 'Ring 2'.

Have you tried 'The Descent'? It was new last year. I thought it was excellent.

'Wolf Creek' is supposed to be very good - a new Australian movie.

'Haute Tension' is a fantastic French horror. It's so scary in places. I think it has another name ... maybe 'Switchblade Romance'?

I also liked 'House of 1000 Corpses', but it's a bit of a rip-off of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'.

Yes, I have seen the Ring. There are 2 versions, Japanese and American. I prefer Japanese, the original version.

I saw "SAW2" couple of days ago. It was more grafic, however, I prefer "SAW1". It put importance more on the plot than the bloody scenes.

But thanks for the other movies you recommend, I will check them out.

"Exorcist of Rose Mary" is a good one.

HI! I am Japanese.
I like horror movie.ButI do not like grotesque movie so much Crying or Very sad
My recommend movie is "Kabenonakani Darekairu".
This movie is considerably old. Because it was a video of manager recommendation, I decided to borrow it.
As an impression of the movie, It is a little horror and funny!! Laughing

Have you ever wached "City of god"?
This movie is Brazil movie. When I wached this movie, I was shocked.
Content of this movie is story of young of slum.
Many young children killed each other.This movie is true.
This movie is very cruel and sad. But we can see status quo of slum of blazil. And I was thought.
If you find this movie, you should try.
