Horror films for Halloween!

So recently, probably like many people out there, I've been on a horror flick kick. However, this year seems a bit stale for me. I haven't found that many TRULY scary films and have been scraping the bottom of the Netflix barrel trying to find stuff to creep me out. Here's a brief rundown of what I have been watching:

THE STRANGERS: saw this one the other day. It started off pretty atmospheric and tense and I enjoyed the character buildup. I feel it kinda just went downhill after they started doing typical dumb things (like splitting up). Kinda lame and I didn't get all that creeped out by the evil doers. Watch Funny Games instead (the original or remake), they are better and cover basically the same territory.

THE MASK OF LESLIE VERNON: I watched this one earlier this year, but remember it being pretty good. It's a mockumentary making fun of slasher films, and was hilarious. Check this one out if you haven't seen it (although it really wont scare you).

OUTPOST: I checked this one out cause it has the guy that played Pullo in Rome. It was pretty good, but had some flaws towards the end that kinda contradicted what happens in the film earlier. Good concept though.

What I have been really into lately is old supernatural kung fu movies like "Encounter of the spooky kind" and "Mr. Vampire". Both were good if you are into that stuff like me.

If you have some recommendations for me leave a comment! :O
