    Typical Hollywood schlock horror - unsubtle, predictable and tedious. If you want horror that leaves much to the imagination (and because of that, is far more creepy and disturbing) check out Japanese horror films. Now they know how to do horror.

    Lol... Yup, I was just pulling Grant's leg and also playing on the 'of the dead' zombie theme. Actually, in terms of Day of the Dead, I much prefer the original from 1985.

    However, totally agree on the Japanese stuff, but unfortunately am rather put off with subtitles. Italian horror films can also be pretty good. Dario Argento, for example, was for me a master of the macabre/supernatural thriller, and which joking aside I'm much more into than outright horror.

    I rather enjoyed his 'Suspiria', from 1977, among many others, which was very creepy:



    Going back even further, I also enjoyed the often rather sinister output of Edgar Allan Poe.

    I also remember this one of DA's, from back in the day, being a bit of a 'head fuck', especially that creepy walking clown-doll!



    How's THAT for a cover!

    Trailer here, which is actually quite funny:



    I see the film's available on Google Play for 1.99, so might revisit it later!

    I was going to cite 'Suspiria' as one of those films where the 'horror' is much more subtle, and thought it might be by an Italian director, but I'm not at home at the moment so could not consult my Big Boy's Bumper Book of horror, fantasy and sci-fi films.

    There is a sub-genre of Italian 'horror' films called giallo - are you aware of it?

    Some of the B&W films made by Val Lewton for RKO in the '40s are subtle 'frighteners', with much left up to the imagination, but none the less are quite disturbing: 'Cat People' and 'I Walked with a Zombie'. You would probably find them quite tame, if not 'twee'.

    Don't know anything about the latter, Barry, but sounds intriguing. I've heard of Giallo, but haven't explored it much. I just like anything that's rather 'dark'. And when it comes to comedy, I much prefer the black variety, than the 'happy-clappy', overtly cheery, family-friendly stuff. I just don't find that in any way entertaining.

    The worst though are those mind-numbing, vacuous 'rom-coms'. I utterly detest them!!
