I'm pretty behind on the genre these days but if Unfriended counts, so does Searching, which isn't a horror movie, but it still owns. Other than those I'm not sure what we got this year.

Suspiria was my first Argento(as I'm sure it is with a lot of people), and that close-up of the heart stabbing is one hell of a tone-setter. I was immediately like ok drat this Argento guy goes places American directors won't.

Monster Squad and The Predator I feel like have the same problems where itís got everything I like in it but never comes together right in the end.

MS is better by a lot but something just isnít quite there and that kinda sucks for me. Iíve said it before but it feels like half the film simply isnít there.

With the sequel, I see what they were attempting to roll with, but good God did they tank it as the film went on. I liked the footage from people seeing the wierd poo poo around the Abbadon, and I didn't think the talk show bits were all that horrible, but the last stretch in the hotel was total crap. It was bad enough to make me go doublecheck that the people behind the first film were involved with this.

That's one way to say it. Another, more accurate way of saying it is that I forgot about it. That says more about me than it does about Videodrome.

I didn't think you were also into sadism and bestiality, but you're flogging a dead horse here.

Anyway: what are people's favourite opening scenes in horror movies? If you don't answer "The Fog" then you're wrong, but all input is welcome!

I just watched Hell House LLC and agree it did not warrant a sequel. They go whole ham and overfocus on scares rhat could benefit from a bit of subtlety and add weird mystery to details that dont benefit from obfuscation. Plus the whole ending sucked.

I love the opening to Carpenterís The Thing with the dog being chased across the open arctic. The desolate cinematography and Morriconeís score really set up the tone of the movie from jump street. And itís such an awesome ďwhat the hell is going onĒ beginning.

Best opening scene is definitely tougher because horror directors know that if they can grab your attention right away they've got you for the whole movie. There's a ton of good options, very hard to choose a favorite.

One that comes to mind right away is Black Sunday.

The Friday the 13th remake has an entire Friday the 13th sequel compressed into its opening. That's hard to beat.
