I would also choose Zombieland or Sean of the Dead. I think for someone that doesn't like horror they need to watch one that is also comical.

I suppose it depends on the person. If they are ok with gore (someone who likes actions and "shoot 'em up" type movies) I'd recommend Army of Darkness, Shaun of the Dead or Tucker and Dale. All are bloody, but funny.

If someone doesn't like gore then I'd suggest something older and with more suspense. The old school Universal movies would be good, Birds is another non-bloody favorite of mine,

For a kid I'd probably recommend Little Monsters of Monster Squad.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

Of course I would start with the old school Universal Horror movies. For a funnier approach I also like Shawn of the Dead. I mean, that is an amazing movie!

I'd totally go with your modern horror movie choices. I also would recommend a solid horror by the name of Poltergeist. I think it's got great tension, acting, and a few funny moments with some great scares.

Great question!

What if you were simply more devoted to loving your self?

What movie would you recommend to someone who says they don't like horror movies, but wants to "try" one?

Honestly, I can't imagine NOT liking horror movies, but I know many don't, probably because they have never seen one or have assumptions they are all blood and guts. I'd solidify their assumption by recommending Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. LOL! But really, that one is a great and hilarious movie, and yes, I absolutely recommend it.

Ok, for real, for a newbie to horror, today I'd probably recommend my original all time favorite movie, Dracula with Bela Lugosi, followed closely by the Bride of Frankenstein. For something more "modern" I'd choose Zombieland (especially if they're a fan of comedy) or The Thing, and for something rather recent, it would be The Conjuring or The Possession.

Of course, our recommendations will reflect our own favorites that we've seen that we think everyone should enjoy! :) Right?
