You probably know by now that we at The Pit love horror movies, so when we heard that Ghost vocalist Tobias Forge had shared what his favorite horror flicks are – of course we were excited to learn. Forge shared his favorite films via a fan Q&A hosted by Metal Hammer; the fan who asked Forge about his favorite movies says that Ghost actually got them into horror movies (which hey, that’s pretty cool). This is what Forge had to say:

“There’s two branches of horror movies for me. There’s old classic slasher films, as in Friday The 13th and stuff like that, but then you have the really good horror films, the ones made by really talented directors who primarily don’t do horror, and do other films as well. The best horror films ever made are The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, Jaws by Steven Spielberg, Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola, The Exorcist, The Omen.

“But then, you have classic cult directors. Lucio Fulci was an Italian director who made a lot of films that are entertaining. The House By The Cemetery is a classic one by him. The horror genre is hurt by the fact you have these really heavy-hitters who come in and do these fantastic films, and then unfortunately a lot of the genre is a swamp of really bad films.”

What do you think of Forge’s picks? Personally, we really love The Shining, The Exorcist, The Omen, slasher flicks, and Fulci’s films. What are your favorite horror movies? In that same fan Q&A, Forge also spoke about what he feels is missing from metal in 2022, and was asked to pick one band to be wiped from history – his choices were either Iron Maiden, Misfits, and Kiss. You can find links to both of these stories below.
