I'm not trying to come across as anti-religious here, but I probably will. The video store down the street is going out of business so I stopped in and stocked up on what they had left. I picked up a few movies that I hadn't heard of, looked them up online and, hooray!, terrible reviews for all of them. One thing that stuck out was a movie by the name of 'House' which is, apparently a christian horror movie. Anyone seen it or any other christian horror movies?

I rank christian horror right up there with christian metal in the 'things I didn't think existed' category, so I'm kind of curious.

Great question.
I think The Passion of the Christ (2004) is one of the most grusome movies ever made. And I keep it with horror movies on my DVD shelf.

Well..the Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby and The Omen are Christain horror. And yes, the House was the first thing that came into my mind when I read your post. I have yet to read it. Also, The Stand by Stephen King is Christain horror. Then there's that book Comes a Horseman that is supposed to be religious terror. I can't remember the author though.

I had no idea these films were considered christian horror. Does this mean that almost any horror movie with a religious angle can be considered christian?

I consider it christian horror if faith ever comes into play as a major plot point.

I was under the impression christian horror would contain no nudity and very little violence. Maybe rely more on the psychological/creepy scares?
Anyone seen House?

What.. like Left Behind?
I don't remember the ones I mentioned having very much, if any, nudity at all.

From "Alice Sweet Alice" to "Demon Knight", there's a whole lot of horror flicks that contain christian elements in them. Even some favorites of mine, "Night Train To Terror" and "The CHURCH"!!! There's my 2 cents haha.

"House" was the first thing that popped into my mind with your post. I think the biggest issue I had with "House" was it simply "borrowed" several elements from other films, and did so rather poorly. It felt like a cheat in that, as a horror fan, you can go scene by scene and see where certain things were lifted from other horror films.

I did see a nifty little flick called "The Gathering" with Christina Ricci, I guess that could fall under "Christian horror", but it was well done, have good spooky atmosphere, and the ending provided a nice twist.

Does anyone else think "Dracula 2000" could be classified as "Christian horror" due to the reveal at the end??

Capt. Insanity is right. LEFT BEHIND is considered to be Christian sci-fi/horror. Good series of books. Relatively awful movie.

Dan - at the end of "The Passion of the Christ" there is a disclaimer saying "The characters in this film are fictitious and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental" LOL....that amuses me soooo much :D.

I heard the film version of HOUSE was horrible, but I thought the book (by Christian authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker) was an interesting take on the SAW thing.

Frank Peretti's classic novel THIS PRESENT DARKNESS was reportedly going the way of film---but I haven't heard anything. The forthcoming film LEGION (when I first saw the trailer) looks like it was heavily inspired by it.

All Christian movie are horror movies if you ask me.

Someone mentioned "The Passion of the Christ"...there is a disclaimed at the end of the movie that says "The characters in this film are fictitious and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental"...hehehe.

I'm a firm atheist and nonetheless FRAILITY is one of my favorite films. Perfectly creepy for reasons I don't want to spoil, but check it out.

By HOUSE are you all talking about an 80's horror film with a cast member from "Cheers?" Cuz that was shiite.

No, the 2008 "House".

I'm the author of a book of popular Christian theology. All of my other work is horror or sci fi ... not including left wing journalism.
None of my horror work is Christianized so to speak. Yes I guess I just invented that word.
My novels, Channeling the Demon and Channeling the Vampire, are filled with new age channelers and evil priests and strong horror.
Horror fiction is an art form, and it wouldn't be very scary if Jesus or Anne Rice and the Pope popped in and saved everyone's soul.
Regardless of your religion or lack of it ... you have go with the tale and rip out some lungs.
Look back in time and you see a lot of failed Catholics and Christians doing horror --like the Exorcist and so on.
It's a load of crap to think that if you're a Christian you have to write soppy Christian genre stuff that isn't really moral or Christian at all.

I don't think I saw Three mentioned anywhere. If I recall it was writttin by the same "Christian-Horror" author as House. I honestly kind of liked the movie. It was better than House to say the least.
