The only movie that has ever actually legitimately scared me was The Exorcist. I still get goosebumps when I watch it, though most of it makes me laugh now.

Pfft. That was pretty tame in my opinion.

The Exorcist III still gets to me more than the first one does, and still creeps me the hell out to this day.

Horror movies have never scared me…I always really enjoy them.

The only movie to ever actually creep me out was E.T.

Smoking Aces. The scene with the retarded kid with a hard-on was a serious pants-wetter.

The Animals of Farthing Wood.

And call me a pussy, but both The Others and The Village freak me out.

Traditional horror flicks just make me laugh my ass off.

28 Weeks Later was scary in how it actually makes the viewer depressed that hope for humanity has been lost and there is nothing anyone can do. Not this pussy blood and guts stuff everyone seems to think is scary.

Eli Roth is the cancer that is killing horror movies.

Poltergeist- but then again I was 12 when I saw it.

Also The Others, but only when you view it for the first time and you don't know what is going on.

Very few movies have legitimately frightened me or filled me with utter dread. The first movie to do that to me was The Shining, the scenes towards the end with the “Redrum twins” and the little boy, etc. That was the first movie to disturb me, too.

A movie that was about horrors but not specifically a horror movie, that did a greater job disturbing me, though, was The Pianist.

I was seriously, quite literally, traumatized for years after seeing The Grudge in theaters. Yes, the American remake. It didnt help that I was already very paranoid of ghostly stuff due to my friends telling me all kinds of ghost stories when I was a little kid. The Grudge just made it much worse.

I have been over my fears for a couple years now, but I still am wary of ghost stories/movies for fear of becoming paranoid again.

No movie has been able to frighten me quite like that one. A funny thing is that The Grudge, along with the original Ju-on and Ju-on 2 are my favorite ghost movies. :D

Monster's aren't scary. Ghost aren't scary. It takes something real to scare me. That's why I must say that any movie that has rednecks or inbreds from the woods of West Virgina scare me.

Horror movies never really scared me, but The Hole put me in suspense through the whole film.

A lot of movies have scared me in the past, but I think it's a tie between “The AmityVille Horror” (the more recent one) and “House of a 1000 corpses”.

Candyman in the theaters made me and my wife scream out loud - the whole theater actually. But nowadays it's movies with a realistic take that freak me out more than special effects. The Exorcism of Emily Rose for example. I don't like the evil/religious stuff because it has too much history. Well I like it because I find it so scary, then I don't like it because I'm spooked.

No one ever bumped into Freddie Krueger or Pinhead in real life for example. But there's a crapload of history, film and stories and stuff about exorcisms and spooky ghost/hauntings and things like that. Not to mention we had a series of unexplained events taking place after we moved in to our own house. ooooooohhhhhooooh! I love B horror movies though - they are great entertainment.

Final Destination scared me enough to not run down the stairs, and to watch where I'm going in the kitchen, and to drive very carefully. For about a day.

There was this modern Twilight Zone episode, called The Faces In The Walls or something, that scared me so much as a kid, because I could see the patterns too. But nowadays I'm completely over it because having studied psychology I understand that the pattern recognition is just primate brain hardwiring.

Just the trailer of this movie scares me to the point of fleeing in terror.








I'm shocked none of you idiots mentioned anything by Hitchcock or more suspenseful films inspired by him! Its an outrage! Its why complete rip offs of his movies become popular! Its also an outrage nothing from the universal monsters series was mentioned either! Outrage!

I like a lot of horror movies. My favorites are probably A Nightmare on Elm Street, Creepshow, Rosemary's Baby, Psycho, Dawn of the Dead (original seventies one), Rear Window, The Shining, and the original universal Dracula & Frankenstien/Bride of Frankenstein films. Also I'd like to mention stuff like Evil Dead, Dead Alive (aka Braindead) and Dellamonte Dellamort thats great stuff too.

I do usually look to the classics for something scary. The blood and gore crap that seems to be the standard has never interested me. I need something that gets me to think, to make me see the bigger picture.

That being said, The Day The Earth Stood Still managed to chill me with my own thoughts.

As for something that did make me scream/freeze up/be afraid to sleep at night: The Exorcist, hands down.
