    So what was it a horror film? Supernatural? Do you like horror movies?
    Why did this movie scare you?
    I've heard people say, "The Shining", "Rosemary's Baby", "The Oman",
    .. some other movie?

    Certainly the original "Halloween" has to rank for me.. I was a little kid
    with a love for the holiday... and it scared the shit out of me.

    I've said this in another thread but Carrie does it for me... it's not her that's scary but the cruelty she had to endure from everyone (especially her mother)

    the original Halloween scared me the most out of any movie I've seen but, i was 14, babysitting on halloween and that was the first time i saw it, wtf, and the kid i was watching kept looking out the window and laughing (he was about 4) anyways yeah it was one of those things were i knew! i knew i shouldnt be watching it! but i couldnt turn it off,

    its one of the few horror films that is terrifying and brilliant at the same time

    The EXORCIST
    "The question is, does a film as powerful as The Exorcist lose any of its power by seeing as accessible as Toy Story? Because we can skip to a scene, or pause for a cup of tea... The answer is NO!"
    It's about the Devil possesing a small child,that's horrible enough, and it contains scnes of physical degradation that would make a coroner blanch. And the Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, the rising crescendo of wind and fighting dogs in Northern Iraq, revealing of the words "help me" on Regan's stomach, the brilliant use of traffic noise:constant car horns, a deafening subway train...
    Lastly the DEMON itself...

    The scariest movie i've ever seen is "Audition", a Japanese flick. It's SCARY and totally unnerving because it's about a monster that could be hiding behind every beautiful smile out there!

    "Revenge is a dish best served cold."
    That scene made me giggle in glee. icon_twisted.gif


    Child's Play was extremely disturbing for me as well as [REC]. [REC] is the original Spanish movie that the American movie "Quarantine" was based off of. Though [REC] seemed more claustrophobic and isolating than Quarantine and expanded on the story more.



    IMO, that scariest films are the ones that take things and places we normally associate with safety and comfort (your childhood toys and your own home in Child's Play and [REC], respectively) and make into threatening and dangerous.

    love that scene in The Hitcher when they hook the girl up between the two trucks and pull her apart... damn that's a good movie. Movies about psychopathic humans are scarier than any monster/alien movies I've ever seen.

    An Inconvenient Truth. I hope that doesn't happen! Ha ha.

    Okay, my favorite horror movie? Probably Scream. I thought The Strangers was freaky as was Vacancy. Movies that really show the depths of human disparity are the scariest.

    The remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"

    I saw it when I was a kid, around 10 or 12, and that very same night the drywall on one of my walls caved into my room...as if something in between the drywall and the exterior wall had pushed through....

    Couldn't sleep properly FOR WEEKS.

    And watching arachnophobia when I was a kid gave me a healthy terror of spiders that will likely last until I'm dead.

    The original Halloween. I did not see any of the trailers or reviews of this movie beforehand so I think that made it more scary for me. Plus I was young!!

    The first time I saw the Exorcist on tape.

    I had to watch Psycho for a film class at school. Even though it does not have the blood and gore of the new movies, it was pretty suspenseful.

    The last movie that really creeped me out was the Silence of the Lambs. I guess it did not help that the whole Dahmer nightmare came to light about then!!

    1) The original Halloween
    2) Angel Heart (because it messes with you long after it's over)
    3) Tie of "The Silence Of The Lambs" and "Jacob's Ladder"--same as above

    I'm stunned that it hasn't been mentioned yet. My pick is Alien. I saw it when I was 7 and I'm not sure when I started sleeping the whole night again after that lol.

    I don't know if I'd use the word "scary", but it is one of the most troubling and unnerving films I've ever seen.


    i honestly dont get why everyone freaks out about this film , its like the asian version of crush, but with dismemberment by fishing line.
