Final Destination 2 didnt scare me but it kept me really thinking because its more likely to happen than other blood and gore films and it has more of a plotline. sure the thoughts kept me awake a little bit longer, but it didnt flat out scare the crap out of me. its a great movie though.

"The woman in Black" Seriously damaged my child-hood. Never have I ever been so scared as I was at that terrifying ghostly old english crone, who made horrible accidents happen to children.  Scariest haunting movie I ever saw.  "house on haunted hill" was also scary. (The original, not the remake)Texas Chainsaw?  Oh my yes.

"Signs" bugged me incredibly, but didn't scare me at all for reasons already mentioned.

Eraserhead was so creepy because it was a strange movie plus the first time I saw it was at about 2AM.

Signs was the most boringest lamest movie ever.

i just saw "Nightmare On Elm Street," or at least, the last 3/4ths of it...I don't know, it seemed like Freddy was a big-ass wuss in the final confrontation...although the scene where she wakes up, and thinks she failed to bring him into the real world, and then he pops up from behind the bed...I knew it was gonna happen, but it still scared the shit outta me...

and then, another movie, "Ginger Snaps." It's a great movie, surprisingly bloody and violent since it's a canadian movie...and they had a chance to use computer effects near the end, but they stuck with the time-honored tradition of animatronic puppets and good edit cuts.

Please edit your sig to 120 pixel height max.

I gotta say, nothing really scares me all that much. Although I do like blood and gore. But, I get really emotional in scary movies for some reason. Like, in Final Destination 1, I cried at the funeral for all the kids who died on the airplane.

Hm... Session 9 freaked me out a little...

The Haunting was kinda scary. Not too much, but since I was watching it late at night at a friend's house with people I didn't know, they kept screaming randomly and got me jumpy.

Alien when the chestburster comes made me wanna throw up at first (I saw that when I was little)... I love IT, Tim Curry is the best clown in the whole wide world!

I'm telling you what won't win: Jeepers Creepers 2; it was hilarious although the effects were very realistic...

Well...it was made very cheeply, but it has some good jump and scare moments. It is considered a classic by gorehounds,  puke     (yes I am one) the splatter content is high near the end. Evil dead 2 is pretty much a remake but with a bigger budget, and more stuff to play with. However, they are very different in terms of story. www.imdb.com/title/tt0083907/
By todays standerds it would be hokey but if you watch it to complete your watching of the trilogy, and keep in mind that it was paid for by donations an credit cards then trust me, it is worth it

when i was like 6 i saw Dr. Giggles and it scared the shizit out of me-- now i think any movie i see isnt bad really. its weird i guess that that movie made me able to watch any move and not really get bothered by it.  But the ring would be the best ive seen along with (ahhhh  i forgot the name!)  oh wait   exercist

"The Omen" scared me somehow. I was never scared by traditional horror movies like "Childs play" or anything like that. But Omen really creeped me out.

I got this creepy Japanese horror movie today, called, Uzuamaki.  My Japanese is rusty, but I remember enough to get the basic gist of what the characters are saying, exposition, etc.  Still, it's a spooky film, with everything being concerned with spirals, and some intense images.  Maybe better than the Japanese version of the 'Ring'.

Videodrome is a classic.

The 1983 sci-fi/gore film, Xtro, sadly gave me a few shocks. That birth of a full-grown man was a classic   eek

Of the horror movies I've seen?

Session 9. Creepy as hell, lots of blood, very confusing. The end is the scariest part, where the guy that murdered everyone is talking into a battery-less walkie-talkie, trying to say he's sorry to his wife (whom he had stabbed to dead, and was under the illusion that he had merely hit her). *shudders*

Anyone else seen Session 9? It's not a widely-known movie.

Session 9 is a very eerie film compared to other movies released around that time. Hardly any budget, no special effects. The grittyness of the film is its core. Great stuff.

I haven't seen a lot of movies that can be deemed scary. Oh no, my mom had to go see The Exorcist back in high school. Now she will never watch another horror movie, my dad frankly doesn't watch movies, and my brothers would wet their pants if they ever saw one (or at least get terrible nightmares). From what I've seen, I've found out that horror movies don't scare me like they do to others.

Does Rocky Horror Picture Show count as scary? In the disgusting and plothole-riddled sense.

Alfred Hitchcock films usually come to mind when i think of scary movies. He truly perfected the art of manipulation and the final scenes in The Birds, Rear Window and Psycho are proof of this.

One scene that always sends shivers down my spine is the climax of Rear Window. I won't ruin it for you but i find it truly frightening.

Recently the only films that i have found even remotely scary were the first two Scream films (don't even mention Scream 3)and The Ring. Drew Barrymores scene in Scream definitely has to be the most gut wrenching and hard to watch in recent memory.

Videodrome - a classic, i've seen it first when i was 10, scarred me for life... same goes for IT - 11 years old...


but, being a horror buff, in movies AND in comics for the past 10 years, i've pretty much grown used to it, and not much can scare me now...


BUT... last night i finally got to watch one of the most disturbing films ever... Requiem for a Dream... such stuff scares me, because the situations in the film reminded me of the life that i avoided by pure chance... trust me - it's one of those movies you DON'T wanna see for the 2nd time...

Probably nobody here will know this german movie: Abwaerts (Downward). It's about a lift who is stuck at a building and about to crash... no science fiction fantasy mambo jumbo, but plain reality and emotions pure.

Ah and Alien scared me pretty much when i saw it when i was 12 or 13.

E.T. freaked me out when I was little. I wouldn't watch it until about a year ago (just before it was rereleased into theaters). I told myself I'd see it at the theater, but then I went in to do a theater check, saw a floor to cieling sized E.T. and walked right back out. I never did see it in theaters, but I can at least watch it at home with no problems.

The Exorcist
My friend bought it a while back and a few of us got together to watch it. All 3 of us thought it was the worst movie we'd ever seen.

I've never seenAlien, but I'm hoping it will be able to scare me, at least a bit. Counting down the days until it hits theaters... October 31

 The Ring was fucking hysterically scary if you understood the symbolism....... Signs hit me hard... but nothing AND I MEAN NOTHING tops the original Shining with Jack Nicholas...

Ohh and Session 9 that was an art film that scared you to the core such as the original ringu... (The Japenese Original) and Aliens (Alien 2) scarred me much more than the first one.... 3 sucked and ressurection lacked as well.

The Ring was not scary. Sure, it was a great movie, but not the least bit freaky. At all. Same with Signs.

The Piano, when he cut off her finger I got scared. And some sort of horror I saw a couple of months ago with my partner, it was about bugs and they killed people. I hate bugs, so it was very scary for me.

Thunderous bump.

Last night I got held over at work until 4AM (which felt like 5AM thanks to the switch from Daylight Savings Time).  We were watching Bravo and they had a marathon of their mini-series "The 100 Scariest Movie Moments."  Needless to say, I haven't seen a lot of the ones in the horror genre, but some of them I do agree with.  Here's their list, starting with #100:

100   28 Days Later
99   Creepshow
98   Zombie
97   Cat People
96   The Birds
95   Jurassic Park
94   Child's Play
93   Pacific Heights
92   Village of the Damned
91   Shallow Grave
90   Night of the Hunter
89   Alice Sweet Alice
88   Invasion of the Body Snatchers
87   Black Christmas
86   Wizard of Oz
85   Blood & Black Lace
84   Blue Velvet

70   The Stepfather
69   Re-Animator
68   The Black Cat
67   Duel
66   The Tenant
65   Marathon Man
64   Near Dark
63   Deliverance
62   The Wolf Man
61   The Devil's Backbone
60   The Beyond
59   Fatal Attraction
58   Cujo
57   House of Wax
56   Single White Female
55   The Vanishing
54   The Changeling
53   Demons
52   The Phantom of the Opera
51   The Dead Zone
50   The Last House on the Left
49   Diabolique
48   The Thing
47   Nosferatu
46   The Sentinel
45   The Wicker Man
44   The Game
43   It's Alive!

41   The Hills Have Eyes
40   Black Sunday
39   Dawn of the Dead
38   Peeping Tom
37   House on Haunted Hill
36   Cape Fear
35   Aliens
34   The Hitcher
33   The Fly
32   Pet Sematary
31   Friday the 13th
30   Blair Witch Project
29   Serpent and the Rainbow
28   When a Stranger Calls
27   Frankenstein
26   Seven
25   Phantasm
24   Suspiria
23   Rosemary's Baby
22   Don't Look Now
21   Jacob's Ladder
20   The Ring
19   Hellraiser
18   The Haunting
17   A Nightmare on Elm Street
16   The Omen
15   Freaks
14   Halloween
13   Scream
12   Misery
11   Audition
10   Wait Until Dark
9   Night of the Living Dead
8   Carrie
7   Silence of the Lambs
6   Shining
5   Texas Chainsaw Massacre
4   Psycho
3   Exorcist
2   Alien
1   Jaws


Frankly, my bet with the midnights dispatcher was the top three would be (in no particular order) The Exorcist, The Shining, and Alien.  This is also the woman who bet against me when I said Lex from Jurassic Park was not played by Kirsten Dunst and that the one kid from "Boy Meets World" did not play Tim.
