I saw it...not bad (it's English, though!), certainly not boring, sort of a zombie movie but not quite, effects are gory but not excessive (thank God), pretty disturbing in many scenes. Overall: See it, better than most horror movies, which doesn't say much, of course, but definitely not a classic like Evil Dead.

I'm a horror movie buff
1. Nightmare on Elm Street (Johnny Depp's death is one of the coolest murder scenes in horror movies)
3. Friday the 13th (Besty Palmer, come on she is awesome)
4. The Exorcist
5. The Shinning
6. Scream (only because it revived slasher movies, and Wes Craven did it, the slasher movies that followed blew big time)
7. The Blob (because in the 50's it was one of the scariest movies of all time)
8. Rosemary's Baby
10. I don't know #10, ask me in 10 years.

Exorcist is my favorite.
The Friday 13th, Nightmare series I enjoy, but not as horror films. I see them as comedy. When I was in university, we would rate each killing for originality and effect, from 1-10, and shout out our scores in the theater. I think the only 10 I gave was one where Jason had a victim in a big sack and splattered her against a tree. I loved it!

I am not really a "scary/slasher/horror" movie fan, but I have to stick my vote in for "The Exorcist" also.
There are a few movies that have "scary" or "heart-stopping" parts in them but may not be a totally scary movie. One recent movie in particular I can think of is "The Ring". When the girl's mother opens the closet and finds her dead... and at the end when the other "creature-girl" climbs out of the well..
For some reason that just gave me chills.

The Ring is quite scary, but only the original Japanese version (there are 3 rings - Ring 0, Ring 1 and Ring 2 - you need to see them all). Also, a Honh Kong horror flick called 'The Eye' by the Pang brothers is pretty scary in places.
