GodForbid_ClayPatrickMcBride_-5485

Happy Friday The 13th! As a special treat I have Doc Coyle’s, guitarist for God Forbid, Top 5 horror movies. It’s been a while since I posted a Top 5 and I’m super excited to share this one. There are some fantastic choices past the break which also include tour dates for their Trespass America Tour and their new video for Equilibrium. Also make sure to pick up their new album Equilibrium through HERE. Enjoy!

The Thing (1982)
This is referred to as the “original” Thing, but it is a remake itself and a heralded classic. This is my favorite horror film. It has three of my favorite elements in modern cinema; John Carpenter, Kurt Russell, and Keith David. The Antarctic setting couldn’t be more remote or frightening. The pacing leads you along perfectly, and the ground breaking special F/X hold up to this day. I also love the atypical ambiguous ending.

The Prince Of Darkness (1987)
This is another John Carpenter classic that seems to go under the radar compared to some of his other films. This is the scariest film I’ve ever the seen that details a scientific research team summoning Satan into the earthly realm. The tone and feeling of true evil permeates you’re soul. I dare you to watch it at night with the lights off.

The Shining (1980)
The Shining is characterized by Jack Nicholson‘s legendary psychotic performance and Stanley Kubrick‘s genius cinematography. Every frame is a work of art. As you can see, blood and guts, don’t scare me. The most truly frightening tales target your psyche, and The Shining achieves this to perfection.

The People Under The Stairs (1991)
This Wes Craven written and directed flick is as equally entertaining as it is creepy. It may come off as camp to some, but it hits all the right notes in a good horror film. The bad guy is scary as hell, the child protagonist is sympathetic, it features a young Ving Rames, and there are people under the fucking stairs.

The Sixth Sense (1999)
Before M. Night Shyamalan lost his credibility, he was building a great reputation as Hollywood’s upcoming elite. It all started with The Sixth Sense. You can’t tell me that this movie didn’t freak you out. The script is airtight, and it holds up to multiple viewings. Its Shyamalan at his Hitchcockian best before the wheels fell off.
