Frightening Films

As usual, we have a ton of films that are considered “Horror Films”.   We are fortunate to have so many eclectic tastes in our faculty, students and staff; their suggestions have helped us develop this collection.  The films range from the B Movies of Roger Corman–you know his work – “A bucket of blood: an artist creates realistic sculptures by covering dead bodies with clay. Little shop of horrors: a flower shop assistant has a problem with a carnivorous plant. The terror: a young officer follows a mysterious woman to a creepy castle. The wasp woman: a scientist creates a youth serum derived from wasps and turns a female executive into a man-killing wasp-woman” (from Container).  

Do you prefer Vampire films; Horror Films from Thailand (ask for suggestions from the Southeast Asian collection staff).  What about horror films from  from Japan – if you haven’t tried his work and you are brave enough to watch, Takashi Miike is a director you want to check out — (I couldn’t even finish Audition).  A couple of other international directors to look at are Mario Bava and Dario Argento; both of these directors can bring Friday the 13th to its knees.  

How about good old American horror directors, Wes Craven, John Carpenter or Alfred Hitchcock.  What about ghost movies?
