the shining and the exorcist are probably the only movies i have seen that scared me. i like rosemary's baby it's a great film but i didnt find it scary. more of a suspense like Hitchcock.
i love Hitchcock, Vertigo is a great mystery highly recommended.

I remember that scene from Fire in the Sky. It wasn't as scary as it was creepy. Yes, there is a difference between something being creepy and something being scary. Signs (even though I don't like the message it sends) is more creepy because it's the kind of movie that makes you look over your shoulders or out the window praying that you don't find something looking back at you. Creepy movies make you paranoid and worried while scary movies just outright scare you. The Ring is a good movie but I don't find it as scary as some people say it is. The only time I jumped during the movie was when they showed the teen girl's dead body in the closet. I probably would've found the creepy girl coming out of the tv screen scary but one of my idiot friends told me about it before I saw the movie so I saw it coming. Donnie Darko was sort of surreal to me because as a kid I had nightmares about deformed people in suits, some of which were bunny costumes. That's what I find scary in movies- small fears and other porblems from my regular life exaggerated to the point of being utterly terrifying.

That's true OC_James, it is those little things that can scare you when you see movies.  I know this may get some disbelieving looks, but the Exorcist 3 actually has some great scary moments in it.  There's a scene in a hallway where the camera is just there, looking straight ahead, and a person walks back and forth through the frame.  I won't spoil it, but when something happens, some people in the theater just went, Yaaah!, while I jumped in my seat.

Most of teh people I know say The Ring was the scariest movie they have seen. Including my best friend's little brother. But me and above friend thatought it was the worst movie we've ever seen. If it didn't have the part with the ferry and the horse I think it probably would have been a lot better and a lot scarier, but the ferry scene just made the movie stink for me.

The Ring! Bloody Hell, I was actually covering my eyes with my hands and dreading each second. I didn't even do that with The Excorcist (which I found pretty tame, to be honest. Very well made, but not nearly as scary as everybody says).

The first time I saw The Shining, now that was scary. Now I watch it quite comfortably, although not alone! Those little girls, scaaaary!

But the crown strangley enough has to go to Jaws. Not when actually watching it (as fantastic as it is). But whenever I go swimming (even in a pool) I just cant get sharks out of my head. I love to swim, but I can no longer go in any water by myself, and I can't swim in the sea out of my depth FULL STOP!

Thanks Steven Spielberg! (great movie though, so I guess that the fear is worth it)

When I was little, I got scared by lots of things, like Jurassic Park.  I was about ten when Mars Attacks! came out and I didn't understand it was supposed to be funny.  I got really creeped out by it.  Now, I'm really scared of the original Night of the Living Dead, though I think it's one of the best films I've ever seen.  The original of The Haunting is also very creepy, in my opinion.  I didn't see the remake and don't have any interest in doing so.  The Last Man on Earth with Vincent Price is spooky as well, but it suffers from a pretty lame ending.  When Price sees his dead wife, I nearly peed my pants.  Classic horror films are much scarier than those today, I think.  I wasn't scared of Signs 'cos I though the aliens were just stupid.
The Ring was an alright movie, but it didn't scare me.  I cracked up at Samara several times during the film.  I just can't be scared by the voice of Lilo and the dub VA of Chihiro.

NOOOOO The ring (US ver) is a cheap rip on a fantastic Japanese movie.

And as for Signs... it's not really about aliens. It's about "signs" rellating to "coincidences" e.g. - did you see the signs? Re-watch the movie again... the whole movie was just a setup for the ending.

I loved a lot of the whole 60's and 70's style of horror movies anyway, a lot more than what they have these days.  Back then, you had to keep the "Bear"(Big effects) a lot closer to your chest, as they didn't have the money to spend like today.  Bumblebee Theta said that she enjoyed the original Haunting, and didn't see the original.  Good for her, because the remake is just a big special effects hoopla that didn't make sense, while the original was creepy and had almost no effects.  They had to do with what little they had in the older days, and you got a lot of directors that had to be creative, like Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, George Romero, and Wes Craven in the 70's.  They were hungry, and wanted to scare people back then, and they did a good job of it.

I mean, go watch a midnight screening of NOTLD, or Halloween, even though they're old films, and not "gory" enough for today's audiences, they still pack a wallop.

Okay, Jay Sherman rant is finished, waiting to see the next M. Night Shymalan movie.  eek

Ringu, Ringu Ringu!  love  God I love that movie.  They recently released a subtitled version of the original Japanese DVD in America and it's been released in the UK too--WHY HAVEN'T YOU SEEN IT YET!?   red face

I *love* Ringusmile It has like a cult following in Japan...they have a theme park!  With 'ring onion rings'! Eheehee.  laff  Sadako is so creepy.  (When I grow up, I'm gonna be just like her  tongue Anyone wanna see my impression of Sadako's eyeball?)  I really didn't like the changes made for the american release....just 'cause throbbing eyeballs are scarier than white paint

Seriously though, check out this ring fansite.  It has all the goodies about the uber-scarytastic original! http://ringworld.somrux.com/index.htm

The basic idea in the original was the same, but I really like the way the plot went.  The novel is a really different story as well, but unless you live in Japan it's hard to get hold of  cry

I was talking about the US remake of Thr Ring! I haven't seen the original Ringu, but since you say it's even scarier (although i'm sure it's a great film) i'm not ever going to watch it!

There's another movie from Japan called Uzumaki?, which is really hard to describe, though it's creepy as all get out, and is concerned with spirals, though to tell more would blow a major plot point.

Hmm, movies don't scare me as they did when i was younger. As a kid I watched lots of horror films, i remember one time when i was watching Alien 3, i had to go outside and press my face against the window. But fortunately my brother had the volume set really high, so i could hear and see everything. Terminator 2 gave me nightmares for weeks, also i saw Exorcist 3 at my friends house the first time when i was so small that the speakers that were connected to the T.V. set were bigger than me. The Shining still gives me a scare, that is to say if i watch it at 2 or 3 AM and alone in the house while i hear some noices in the kitchen even though i live alone.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space also gave me a couple of nightmares, but now it's one of my favourite cult films
Poltergeist 3 was really scary
and probably some stephen king films that i saw at the time, oh yeah...almost forgot..Gremlins scared the living shit out of me. My grandparents live on the floor above us, and in the stairway between us was a Gremlins poster that i couldn't even walk past.

But all the above movies i saw when i was a kid.


Newer movies really don't spook as much, or the fact that i'm getting older
Event Horizon also gave me quite the spook.
The Gift spooked me more then The Others
and The Ring the american version, i downloaded the other one, and not quite as spooky.

But movies scare me nothing like video games, I can't even play games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill...and First Person Shooters, like Aliens Vs. Predator 2, which i just bought, (Mac version came a little bit later than the PC version)

I think it's a either Poltergeist 3 or Alien 3

I remember watching 'The Others', and I somehow knew when a scary moment was going to come along, and when it did I laughed my head off. Also I laughed at some of the dialogue:
"Someone's taken all the curtains!"
"...Oh dear!..."

I still think that scene in Signs where the alien came out at the birthday party is pretty creepy.

Umm... this is a squirrel. It's all smashed cuz the crazy neighbor man ran it over. He said it was an accident, but he's still pretty crazy. I think he moved away, but he keeps leaving weird drawings and stuff like this in my room. My dad thinks I'm doing it, and starts yelling at me to get a job.

Se7en, although it isn't that scary, is really disgusting. Don't watch after eating!

Most horror movies aren't very scary though, and I'm not really a fan of them. The Ring however is scary stuff!

The Ring: This wasn't scary for me. It was downright fucking confusing. I had to have the ending explained to me.

Signs: This was a scary movie? Where?

I was scared by scary movies as a kid, but when I sit down and watch them now, I wonder why I was ever scared of them.

The Leprechuan series: I avoided this like the plauge as a child. As an adult, I'm sorely disappointed with these movies. They lacked continuity and were just ridiculous.

I'm having a hard time deciding what scared me. Not too many movies do these days and I'm the jumpiest person alive. Most anything that showed blood scared the shit outta me. Now it's like meh, cause I know it's not real.

Scary movies never scare me.  I don't remember ever being scared by a movie, and I've seen a lot of the ones mentioned.  I can recognize when a movie is creepy, though.  Someone mentioned the original The Haunting, which is very creepy, and uses almost no special effects.  Another creepy movie from about the same time is Carnival of Souls, which should be watched by anyone wanting to learn how to create atmosphere (though it might not be of use for much else).  Fun fact: Carnival was made by Centron, a company known for educational short films, many of which appeared on MST3K.

The uncut version of the Exorsist.  That had me shaking, and I watched it at like 3am alone in the house (i planned it like that) on my parents home theater system, 5.1 channels (5 speakers 1 sub).  Figured it would be scarier that way, boy was i right.  nothing like hearing the voice of satan in dolby dts surround.

"Resident Evil" scared me...but sadly, it scared me before the zombies even started appearing...after that, it only made me jump once, when they're trying to get away from the 4 or 5 zombie coming at them, they run out of ammo, the guy frantically is trying to open the security door...and then it finally opens...and a massive crowd of zombies is behind it, and they get the guy...sadly, the rest of the movie couldn't live up to that...the effects sucked ass, and well, it was a one-scare movie...
the movie that really creeped me out was "witches", but I was really little, so go figure.

Ah, I've never seen it but I saw "The Blair Thumb". I love those thumb movies!  From what I've heard, TBW sucks ass and its the worst movie ever.

as said before, i dont get creeped out by movies. the other day my sister forced me to watch "thirteen ghosts" and she was hiding behind the couch and i was playing with my fingers.

but to make up for not getting scared i have in getting emotional.  I can get pretty emotional, start to cry, and stuff.  That's part of the reason I'm a shipper.

The great thing about Se7en is that you don't actually see anything, it's all in your mind.

I still am.

Quite a few films scared me as a kid but now I'm pretty much over them. Slasher films never scare me. Event Horizon was the last film I saw which really frightened me, if only for the video recording of the crew tearing each other apart. And most David Lynch films leave me a little spooked just because of the atmosphere.
