Scariest movie you've seen?

  I'd have to say, Fire In the Sky. Keericed that was a scary movie.


Also, Audrey Rose as a whole wasn't scary, but the scene where the little girl is staring in the mirror at herself with an insane smile saying "Hey. Hey Audrey. Audrey Rose." was right freaky.

  I don't watch scarey movies. I'm missing that gene that gets enjoyment from watching someone cut open another person with a knife, or something along those lines.

I watched Psycho as a kid and it scared the bejeebaz out of me.
I do enjoy suspencful movies though. Movies like The Sixth Sense are good

That's one of my favourite jeans. I mean genes.

Yeah, the Sixth Sense was good. And wouldn't you know, Mischa Barton makes a hot dead chick.

I read this and I thought, "Dude, is he talking about that little girl?" Then I ran an image search and it turns out, she grew up. A lot.

  I don't get scared by many movies any more and i do not consider the current trend for squeamfests proper horror, gross eyeball cutting and limb ripping is part of horror but not the whole thing which is why saw was shite, it was like an M Night shaymalan film with a saw in it.

Trully scary movies come from your childhood in my view, despite it not being that frightening in reflection I haven't seen American Werewolf in London for years because it freaked me out as a kid. Zombies flesh eater by Lucri Fulci got me obsessed with Zombies when i was about 10 as did Michael Jacksons thriller (Vincent Price's voice over scared me more than the zombies in that).

The most recent scare i had from a horrorish film was (and don't laugh) the last broadcast, a which is essential Blair Witch for wankers. I watched it when i was feeling ill one night and lay half asleep on my couch, i drifted in and out of it until the end where the guy goes to kill the editing woman and I'm watching a murder in real time. Whatever i was dreaming about when i drifted off crept into this narrative and it freaked the shite out of me and for a while i couldn't figure out what was real and dream and if i was alone( i was) in my house or not.

So maybe the future of horror is to inject everyone with mild sedatives and play some trippy Bunuel/Dali stuff (to encourage weird dreams) then give it a real time ending leaving you wonder whether it's true or not!!

  I don't go for scary movies much myself (I prefer deep and penetrating terror, something which movies like "Scream" cannot evoke), but there are a couple of movies that had moments that scared the freaking #*%!@ out of me. The the Curb Scene in American History X is one, and one of the opening scenes in Lean on Me, where a teacher is assaulted in the cafeteria. I still remember how scared I was every time I hear Welcome to the Jungle.

Ugh, yeah. The scene where the gangbanger stabs Samuel L. Jackson in 187 is bad, too.

I missed that. I absolutely hate all these Saw and The Hills Have Eyes type of movies that are coming out. They're spinning them out by the shitty dozen, it seems.

  Requiem for a Dream.

This was the first one to come to mind.
I have seen it 3 times.

First: Saw it with a friend, it shook me up a bit and I thought it was extremely well done. Added it to my list of favourites.

Second: Saw it alone. Started off stretched out on the couch. Ended up in the corner of the couch hugging my knees. Still thought it was good.

Third: Saw it with my sisters and a friend. Felt like I was going to throw up. Shed some tears. The last quarter of the film scared the crap out of me even though I knew what was going to happen. I went to bed that night feeling unusually disturbed and upset.

I never want to see that movie EVER again.

  Favourite scary movies (note: I'm not including stuff like Saw and silence of the lambs, which isn't "scary" if you ask me) that I have in my collection are (in alphabetical order) :


Dawn Of The Dead, 2004 Remake ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363547/ )

Hotel Rwanda (not the typical horror, but definately managed to get the sense of imminent danger across) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0395169/ )

The Blair Witch Project (disliked by many, but I'm guessing that's because they watched it with the wrong intentions and mindset) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185937/ )

The Shining (the scene with the 2 girls around the corner, one of the scariest moments in movie history) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/ )

The Thing (old movie, but definately worth seeing if you're not the kind of person who'll be bitching about outdated graphic design, the story, setting and atmosphere is very good) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/ )




Still looking for (because I liked them, obviously)


Cannibal Holocaust (the impalement scene, the birth+killing scene, the rape scene, the turtle scene, all pretty intense, but I can't find the DVD anywhere) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078935/ )

The Evil Dead (anybody remember the horny tree? And the zombies in the cellar) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083907/ )

The Exorcist (let's all piss our pants and turn our heads 360) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070047/ )

"Ah jus' called me mum, an' told 'er ah love 'er."

  I was 11 levels of unimpressed by Kubrick's The Shining. It seemed to get more and more ridiculous until you had a head in the snow.

Requiem keeps freaking me out whenever I watch it.

*IMDB's*

Ahh yep, that one slipped my mind. It did have some pretty creepy/suspensful parts. Good movie, like you said, the first time. Once you know the ending it's kind of hard to find it scary a second time, though.

  Ringu, Ju On, most asian horror flicks (The Tale of Two Sisters rocked but the ending was confusing) , and anything by Hitchcock (the birds esp. i refused to leave to house for days after watching it the first time)....

i'm utterly unimpressed by american horror flicks...

I couldn't stop laughing during the shining, Dreamcatcher was stupid and the book was worse, and the blairwitch project went from creeping me out (i live in the woods and have a penchant for getting lost in them) and being bored as hell.

Haha, agreed on all counts. The Shining, I liked it well enough, but it was kind of, shall we say, not scary in the slightest. More like a goofy movie. Dreamcatcher was retarded. And The Blair Witch Project had me unsettled at first, up until the one guy went missing, at which point I began getting annoyed. I think the music during the end credits was far scarier than the second half of the movie.

Todays movies don't seem to be designed to scare as much as gross you out.

I happened to see the Exorcist during my "born again" days so I was just primed to believe every bit of it as real. It gave me nightmares and I slept with the bedroom light turned on on the night I saw it.

Jaws freaked me out. I took a lot of baths back in those days (as opposed to showers)and as retarded as it sounds I was nervous in the bathwater for a few days. Especially when I would catch my ding-a-ling out of the corner of my eye surface out of the water...cuz it's almost as big as jaws : )

  I try not to watch scary movies because I get nightmares and I'm weird enough already. I don't stand by my bed. I'm either on it or at least a metre away from it. I don't hang any of my limbs off my bed or have them out from under the blankets. Last night I couldn't sleep until I had emptied out all the sinks and bath water in the house, I'm not sure why, the stillness of the water just hit some kind of terror nerve. Sometimes I have to check everything, I shake out all my clothes, pull out all the furniture, before I sleep. And I don't ever change anything in my before bed routine because it may be the one thing that has kept me safe so far. Whenever I'm in a house with stairs I have to walk up and down them a couple of times before I sleep because of that scene in the Excorcist. Every stair I ever climb down I hold onto bannisters and touch every step with my toe before I stand on it in case someone pushes me from behind. A lot of my behaviour comes from scary movies or what I imagine them to be like, even if I'm not actually scared. It's just an urgency.

Oh...I wasn't bragging. I said it was as big as jaws...I just failed to add that I meant Jaws when he was still a teenie tiny baby shark.

anyway the guys with small dicks are the ones that drive Corvettes.

either that, or they're gay.

  Scariest movie I've seen is The birds by Hitchcock.
Years after watching it I was at Gibraltar and lots of seagulls were flying over my head and I felt really uneasy, allways looking over my head, if they are maybe going after me.

i know the feeling.... sometimes i get edgy when there's a flock of birds nearby. i get the urge to hide.

I'm guessing the reason why you all disliked the shining is because your probably watched it in a somewhat lit room with multiple people.

If you'd have watched it on your own while being home alone in a dark room at night, it would have been better.

  That's how I watched it. The wife ruined it and seemed cartoonish. The only freaky scene (her finding The Greatest Novel Ever Written Ever) was ruined by her doing an awful anime scream. Jack, as always, ruled.

Intense dramas get to me. The more realistic, the more in This World, the more terrifying they are.

I also think The Shining can be pretty freaky. Maybe I'm just good at scaring myself but try listening to "Midnight, The Stars and You" [the song from the end of the movie/party] and imagine twin brats and a dog suit and oceans of blood and having a scary looking mom and being chased by your father with an axe. It isn't the scariest movie I've ever seen but it can give me chills and make me feel just the right amount of uncomfortable.

I'd send them to their room without dessert.


Then I'd probably feel bad and go back on my punishment by taking them to Braums.

Hotel Rwanda was okay. I prefer Sometimes in April- a much better, much more truer story of what happened There. Hotel Rwanda, while feeling remarkably true, felt more like Schindler's List (though not a film, I prefer Maus). To clarify, that means it felt flashy at parts, dramatic over realistic (as what is true is always more terrifying than glam).


Mullholand Drive- it's where reality and what's not blur. Now that freaks me out.

Hair and Mulholland drive maybe- but Moulin Rouge was really good. The story is classic! and i love the way the blended in modern songs *woot* Plus i love the whole broadway musical thing. My aunt live near broadway in NYC and she used to take my to all the big plays... I'm in love with theater!

I watched the first half of this and for reasons I won't go into all I could do was sit in my chair and think WHAT IS GOING ON. I'm not sure if it was the movie or the situation I was in but I would be interested to know what the movie is actually about?

that article is ONE GIANT SPOILER so don't read it if you intend on watching the film. i just read it (having never seen the film) and i don't think i will ever see it because it wouldn't entertain me.

my friend's 15 yr old brother used to watch that film every second day, if not everyday. I'm not even exagerrating this.

choke: i think i may have watched that movie in the same situation. or i might have thought you were alluding to a situation totally different to what you were really implying. either way, i was like 'i can't follow this is this state'

In The Name Of The Father scared me. *shudders* eeeeep, miscarriages of justice.... bad... Ultimately though, it was resolved. still....
