Your job is to make a horror movie.

What main setting or ending scene setting would you prefer?

I'm seeking for 9 more settings (25 all in all). They really should be different from the others.
Best suggestions will be prefered.

The List:

An abandoned school
Inside of a huge mansion (Ignore this if you feel it's same as a castle)
I'll link some images later. :)

Thank you for suggesting. The places should be clearly different from other places I still have put in. Abandoned places are the one thing. School-places can be another thing.

It's about major categories, not specialized. So I took wasteland and desert in one place. If it gets to concrete in text, it's not suitable for my list. But the example image should be an typical example for the named category. So maybe you could give me an examplary picture of a highschool or something like that, which is connected to a horror movie? :D

I'd change it to Highschool, because it's more clichée-like. ;)
Let me know, if that's ok for you.
I've put it on the list, because I had it on my mind before, but forgot it.

For your consideration:
  • mine, cave, cavern, sewer, bunker, dam, silo or volcano
  • FOB, boot camp, refugee camp, internment camp, concentration camp or death camp
  • courtroom, throne room, senate camber, the stocks or the gallows
  • freeway, highway or bridge
  • plaza, park or playground
  • alleyway
  • cornfield, orchard, patch, sty, slaughterhouse or freezer
  • prom hall, night club or speakeasy
(Yes, I know you want screenshots, and I'll see what I can do to get them. Think of Stephen King's locations of casualties.)

Just to note, for people suffering from agoraphobia, any place too far from their homes can be frightening: Intruders (2015).

I'll take this to my considerations.
When I think of 'Paranormal Activity' ...'Insidious' .. 'Annabelle 2', ok.
That's a real good suggestion. I take it on the list, but tomorow. Gotta sleep. :)

I put it on the list, but with another picture.
I think the picture of 'Paranormal Activity' is much more frightening
and more memorable to younger audiences who haven't seen 'The Exorcist'.
And it matches more with your suggestion.

Are you sure that photo for Triangle is of a cruise ship? It looks like a regular building.

The Abyss isn't a horror movie. Might want to pick something else...

How about inside your own or someone else's mind? Nightmare on Elm Street, The Cell

I've put an image of 'below' on the list. It's horror on a submarine. It's ok for me, when Jen thinks that 'The Abyss' is not horror enough. I'm flexible. Got a head full of cinematic stuff. But my knowledge thins the more a movie is made earlier in time. ;)

You think so Jeorj? I consider it sci-fi/adventure.

Breumaster, you should do a month only watching movies before 1980! Or two months. :)

Why? I guess, I've seen a few hundred movies made before 1980. :)  I've seen 'Nightmare on Elm Street' and 'The Cell'. They both played after 1980. I wanted to take 'Dreamscape' instead. But anyway - thank you for suggesting. :)

Hi, Stephen.
I put an image of 'below' - which I've seen -  on the list.
Do you think there are better images in 'Deep Star 6' or 'Leviathan'?What of the images of these two movies  would you suggest the most?

You have Skyscraper spelled wrong.

I suggest changing Prom Hall to Party - there really no such thing as a Prom Hall.

The picture you have for High School (which I suggest changing to just School, that way it covers from elementary to college) is actually from a dream, so technically... How about one of these:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0146336/mediaviewer/rm3878197248
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1131734/mediaviewer/rm1303916032

Please use Jen as my name for the credit instead of yrnej. :)

How about an abandoned town?

And there's gotta be some set in a church.

You might change "places" to "locations".

I also suggest changing "bedroom" to "home".

I changed 'prom hall' to 'prom ball'. Do you think that is better? I could write 'a bigger party', too. ;)

I wondered about the suggested term 'your bedroom' with this linked image, but then thought Silitonga is right, there were many newer horror-movies where the bedroom also is an important scenarion. Best expample is 'Paranormal Activity' 70% of the 'plot' plays at the bedroom. 'The own home' might be better - I change that. :)

For school I took an image from 'Faculty', because the other two examples do not really look like school. But on the 'faculty' image, there is a blackboard in the background. That makes it look more like school. Other wise I could search in 'Scary Movie' on IMDb. Maybe there is a classroom image?

I put the abandoned town term to the abandoned buildings. I will add churches. That's a good pick! ;)

#28 or #32?

Kicked the weakest option of 'a school' for the new option 'A specific town or metropole'.
The further option for 'A school' now are on #28. #32, #33, #34. If there's are special wish about that option, I'll take it to my consideration until 4 hours from now on. If not, I'll choose it myself. Other image-suggestions are welcome.

'Good poll, Breu! I'll have to think a bit to decide my vote, though, because there are so many good ones. I bet this one will be close and may become "hotly contested," which is fun.

I liked it from the beginning. 3 people at home and the poll board users worked on the idea. 2 of them at home won't cope with the technical things, so I'm the one who get's the laurels. ;) I tried to explain how to write links with the brackets - and so on, but my folks wanted me to be the messenger. :)

Breumaster,

One of the frustrating aspects of using image lists for polls is that images disappear and leave a blank image. IMDb removes images from their database for a variety of reasons.

When you find an appropriate image, you can replace the image for choice #26 and ask for a re-push: FAQ: Poll Authors - Re-Push Requests

If I find a suitable image on IMDb, I will post a link to in IMDb.
