The original Universal Frankenstein....but I was kid at the time. I really felt sorry for the monster. :(

Cheers!

First one that comes to mind is The Orphanage, although I know there's a few more that have brought me to tears.

Pat Tillett said...

I'm with the "frog queen." I was so sad when Frankenstein died. But....I was equally happy when the wolfman dug him out in the next movie.

No, although I came close during that scene in 'I Am Legend' where Will Smith's dog dies.

But for full hysterics mode, nothing beats the 'Jurassic Bark' episode of 'Futurama'. It's not horror, but it's fucking heartbreaking. In non-doggy related news, I think I nearly cried at an episode of Buffy once.

Wings said...

Not sure if any has ever made me cry.

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight said...

@Porkhead reminded me of that. I Am Legend! I totally cried when his dog died. Seriously I’m unfazed if people die but having to kill your dog. OMG that is the worst.

Um, let’s see. I cried tears of pain when watching Tokyo Zombie. Does that count? I did not like that movie.

I can't think of any I've actually cried in either, but I can definitely think of some that I've come close to crying in:

-The Orphanage (the end...sniff, sniff)
-The Devil's Backbone (another movie Del Toro is associated with)
-The Omen (when he finds out his wife is dead)
-Frozen (probably the closest I've ever been to crying in a horror film)
-Inside (the part when she is remembering her husband touching her, so beautifully captured)

I may have cried when I was little watching Frankenstein too! It's so tragic. Classic.

The ends of Bubba Ho-Tep, Devil's Rejects, and Dark City is just so sad and depressing I get as close to emotion as I ever will. And just to bust Venoms5's balls, the scene where Godzilla is dying on the Brooklyn Bridge. OH, and when the killer the baby Shamu in ORCA, thats a total downer.

iZombie said...

nightbreed, when the monsters were living their own lives... and the police had to rain down on them like a ton of bricks...

serpent and the rainbow, when the guy had his wink on the whack chair... and it got nailed.

carrie, very sad life... only to find out she had unique powers.

recent, zombie's halloween remake... when the parents got killed for not a good reason.

iZombie and i cry...

I almost cried after watching the Wolfman Re-make. Just because they took such a good thing and crapped all over it.

Was very sad

The only movie that I can think I welled up on that was a horror movie is The Mist. Outside of horror movies though I ball like a man who's been kicked in the nuts by a professional nutcracker demon.

@porkhead Jurrasic Bark was sad but for me Luck of the Fryish made me cry even more. Those happy tears.

B-Movie Becky said...

The Mist is one I was definitely close to crying in!!!

Perpendicular Peter said...

last one i remember is 'the horseman', the aussie revenge flick, not the dennis quaid one.

i know there's been others, but a lot of the time, i think it's me, not the movie.

and i'm relieved to know i'm not the only person who has gotten a little teary watching futurama.

Aylmer said...

recently welled up in: Let The Right One In, Inside (at the end when Beatrice Dalle is holding the baby), Martyrs, Pan's Labyrinth.

Richard of DM said...

That's easy: Rocky Horror Picture Show. When Riff Raff guns down Columbia with his laser gun. I don't know why but one night when I was watching it alone, her death struck me as incredibly senseless and depressing and the next thing I knew, I was weeping.

Elwood Jones said...

King Kong is pretty much guaranteed to get me teary eyed, much like Godzilla Vs. Destroyah which is kind of a double whammy, seeing how they not only kill Godzilla (who is going into meltdown) but also use the death footage from the original movie aswell.

Starmummy said...

Maybe the end of Combat Shock. Can't think of any others.

Aylmer said...

Oh man, how could I forget King Kong. PJ's remake really got me.

Jen said...

I bawled like a baby at "Let the Right one in" Just because it was so freakin' good.

TK Turner said...

I'm another one for King Kong and Godzilla. It just seems so unfair to me that they would be killed so cruelly by humans, when humans were the ones who created the problem in the first place.

Trapped by human laws and rules and persecuted throughout the entire movie...ugh...it's just too much when they are mowed down by machine guns and tanks in the end.
