Default Horror Film Recommendations

I never used to like watching horror films, but I have seen a couple this week that were really good (P2 and The Descent) and wonder if anybody has any recommendations for good horror films they have seen lately, on account of Showtime being generally rubbish. Thanks.

I haven't seen it, but have to get it myself - an Australian movie called Wolf Creek. It's character is based on a couple of mad backpacker murdering types. It's four years old now but apparently still scaring people silly. I know a couple of people that haven't been able to watch it.

Oh my God, I've seen that. It was based on a true story. It really brought it home to me how vast Australia is, the fact that they never found the farm where the dead bodies were.

Thanks Jammy I am off to the DVD store after me tea.

Bambi babe, I'm not recommending them, merely copy and paste from www.imdb.com. I don't do horror, it's bad enough having to look in the mirror in the morning.
