#42 on Glenn's Top 100 Movie List
Simply one of the most terrifying movies of all time. And despite the title and reputation, it isn't especially gory. That's the thing with great horror; it can make you remember movies as being much more graphic than they were with just the right atmosphere. Also, ambient music is generally more terrifying than hard rock in your face type stuff, and long shots are scarier than sudden inexplicable cuts or inserts of a baby's crying face. You know what a great horror movie made in the 2000s is? The Descent. That movie is fantastic, and it follows the tradition of old horror movies. I'm sorry that this entry is basically me complaining about every movie made nowadays. I sound like a crotchety old man. Anyway, see this movie but absolutely never watch the remake. It sucks so bad.
