The trailer for Suspiria used to freak me out as a kid.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
As the iris is the flower
That means the END OF YOU!

night of the living dead mother of all modern horror movies.

The Changling - great ghost story!
2006-10-03 08:50:09 PM  
Here's the original:

All kinds of creepy there.

LawrencePerson: But the single screen that scared me the most:

What's that from?
2006-10-03 08:50:44 PM  
Oh scariest movie of all time is the Postmen, it begs the horrifing question how does Kevin Costner keep getting work.
2006-10-03 08:50:45 PM  
The Blob II. that thing could and did come up a drain pipe. Try hiding from that. I didn't get a good night sleep until winter. Then, I knew the blob couldn't get me.

Am I the only one who didn't think The Shining was that scary? I'm not trying to be brave, I'm a pretty big coward when it comes to scary movies, but The Shining didn't really get to me.
2006-10-03 08:53:20 PM  
Gotta go with the original Omen. I'm entirely unreligious, and that thing still managed to put the fear of God into me.

Also gotta throw in a mention for Man Bites Dog. Not a horror film, but this thing nauseated me. I have a VERY strong stomach, but there's a point around halfway through it where I finally had to say "nope, I'm done" and cut it off.

/slashy to give love to Prince of Darkness. I miss good John Carpenter movies.
2006-10-03 08:53:29 PM  
Susperia has everything, especially style.
2006-10-03 08:54:01 PM  
Cannibal Holocaust is one of my favorites! Can't beat a fetus being torn out of woman!

Burial ground is good many incestuous zombies have you seen tear off thier mom's boobs?

Insulin Drop
>Ring is SO much better then Ringu, and scarier.

You made a mistake, the 'u' is in the wrong place.

Ringu was creepy, The Ring was just another Hollywood movie. I will admit the horse scene was fairly decent though.
2006-10-03 08:55:07 PM  
SBA_JKred: Am I the only one who didn't think The Shining was that scary?

I thought the book was much scarier.
2006-10-03 08:55:45 PM  

Alright, yeah, I see it. Bender goes horizontal in the same way.

I'll have to remember this.
2006-10-03 08:55:48 PM  
84 Charlie ending ever...
2006-10-03 08:57:06 PM  
"Trilogy of Terror" creeped me out as a kid. Another good creepy made for TV movie in the seventies was "Bad Ronald"
2006-10-03 08:58:06 PM  
I'm surprised by the lack of support for Evil Dead.. and if you silly people do doubt the awsomness of said movie just check out this clip.


Sheryl gets "molested" by a tree.

2006-10-03 08:59:01 PM  
I have got one that I can not help but bring up.

I do feel shame because it was so recent. I hate it when people always mention the most recent movie they have seen and say "it is the best evah". I watch mostly horror so please trust my advice!!!

See: "Hard Candy"

/The last time I was this disturbed was "The Audition".
2006-10-03 08:59:20 PM  
Wow, Turbo Teen. I knew I had seen that Futurama reference before, but I could never place it. I used to watch Turbo Teen religiously.

Another piece of a childhood (watching TV) reclaimed.
2006-10-03 09:00:32 PM  

The thing about The Shining, is that it's not the "jump out of your seat because something changed suddenly" thing you see in most "horror" flicks today. It's that we got to watch a seemingly normal man slowly becoming molded into a psycho by unknown forces. It plays on the idea that you may not really be in control of your own mind.
2006-10-03 09:00:48 PM  
All the mentions for Funny Games made me look it up on imdb...

And learn that a remake is already in the works from the same director with Naomi Watts and Tim Roth.

For ya'll who mentioned it earlier - is there any chance in hell this is a good thing?
2006-10-03 09:00:55 PM  
Stir of Echos
White Noise
The Ring
Scream (Yeah, it's one of my favorites)

But my absolute favorite is...The Lost Boys.

/I love Kevin Bacon movies. If Flatliners was just a little bit creepier, it'd be scary.
//Also love Keifer movies.
///Like the lost boys.
////Frog Brothers rocked,too.
///And Grandpa.
//One thing I never could stand about Fark threads...all the damn lurkers!
/Slashies like a Jason movie.
2006-10-03 09:01:03 PM  
Shocked, since I just searched the thread and it didn't find any


I downloaded that (limewire) and watched it a while back before burning it to disc and that movie was pretty creepy, especially towards the end when you start seeing scenes showing the guy being mentally deranged, like when he's at the ATM machine and the machine screen reads 'feed me' and he picks up a stray kitten that happens to be nearby and starts trying to stuff the cat into the deposit slot...Until the old lady comes up and scolds him for hurting that poor defenseless kitten. But I won't reveal any more. Then they make sweet sweet love on the street. j/k.

Sure it's not the scariest film i've ever seen, but I'm not about to go and wrack my brain trying to find one; they're just movies, they don't scare me. They're for entertainment purposes.

"What's your favorite scary movie?"
"How about 'Sha-zaam,' with Shaquille O'Neill."
"That's not a horror flick."
"You haven't seen Shaquille try to act."

We can all learn something from, whizbangthedirtfarmer...we all can.
2006-10-03 09:01:35 PM  
I dunno what the actual title it was. I thought it was called the virus but no such luck. Its about somekind of teen or kid using some kind of virtual machine in which he sits in and then does things that i can't really remember (vague i know). Hell it may not even be a horror but for some reason I always think of it as a horror and I dont even know what it was. Meh i was a kid, it's probably nothing special.

otherwise 3 cheers for most zombie movies, 4 for shaun of the dead.
2006-10-03 09:02:24 PM  
PeeWee's Big Adventure. Scariest movie ever. Everytime I watch it the Large Marge part makes me crap my pants.
2006-10-03 09:03:14 PM  
improvius and others - roger that on Prince of Darkness. I just suggested it a few days ago for our local guerilla drive-in. Brilliant horror.
2006-10-03 09:04:07 PM  
"Aliens"-- period.

"The Exorcist" is a long, mildly-entertaining suspense film. Horror? Sure, people were definately horrified back in 1974 when 8-year-old Linda Blair was doing the crucifix trick and barking "FARK ME FOR JESUS" or whatever. That's shock value. But genuine horror-- nope. First time I saw it after a long time, over at a friend's place, and I actually got bored and fell asleep halfway through.

The first half of "Poltergeist" is brilliant. That clown is one of the creepiest moments Evar, and I don't even have problems with clowns. That first half is great... and then the midget lady shows up, and suddenly the thing turns into "Ghostbusters". I'm guessing that's where Speilberg told Tobe Hooper "Ok I'll take over from here." What a shame.

"The Ring"-- yeah when the creepy girl suddenly came out of the tv, I screamed like a little girl in a pink dress. Just like when the arm came out of the ground in "Carrie". But "Carrie" is still a great, fun film... and the "Ring" is just ok.

I like the tv-movie version of "The Shining" better than the movie. Yeah yeah, heresy... whatever. The tv version is closer to the theme of the book-- the hotel is evil. The theatrical movie is just all about crazy ole Jack.

\\personally, i just wish "The Jim Jones Story" tv movie would come out on DVD
\\\scary real events are teh shait

I just thought of another creepy seventies movie. "Let's Scare Jessica to Death". Gotta love a red haired hippie vampire chick!
2006-10-03 09:05:56 PM  
Another fun one... "How to Make a Monster".

A video game AI starts killing people in the real world by taking over a motion capture suit the game developers were using in-house.
2006-10-03 09:06:25 PM  
Doctor Tongues 3-D House of Stewardesses! I can't believe no one has brought that up yet!

/Aaawwwooooooo, kids!

Didn't think so.

But Naomi Watts sure is purty...

Was 'the Birds' scary? Kind of, I think.

No one's mentioned any Hitchcock at all.

Oh, also, some of the old B & W Twilight Zone episodes were pretty creepy.
2006-10-03 09:08:51 PM  

Am I the only one who didn't think The Shining was that scary? I'm not trying to be brave, I'm a pretty big coward when it comes to scary movies, but The Shining didn't really get to me.

I kinda know what you mean, the first time I saw shinning my friends intentionally kept me up all night before showing it to me, and I thought it was the most terrifying thing I'd ever seen. I recently watched it again while not sleep deprived and it seemed kinda like a letdown.
2006-10-03 09:09:22 PM  
Remember that weird guy, Ricard Lopez, who was a big fan of Bjork, then made a movie about it which ended with him blowing off his head with a shotgun?

Not the 20 hour version, but the one edited down for just the good parts.

Usually I'd say no, but since Haneke is doing it himself, there might be a good chance of a decent mind-fark.

But maybe I'm biased as a fan.

Naomi Watts seems to be a good choice for the female lead. And she's hot.
2006-10-03 09:10:11 PM  
As said above, Prince of Darkness is not only the scariest movie ever made, it is quite simply the BEST movie EVER made.

Oh, ye virgins of the Prince, I envy ye. .
2006-10-03 09:11:35 PM  
You jerks! I had to go read the IMDB comments to figure out Sleepaway Camp... and remembered seeing it when I was 14. Now all sorts of repressed horror movies are coming out of the woodworks!!!

/evil dead 2 ftw
//loves me some "dead by dawn" by showbread
2006-10-03 09:12:50 PM  
Despite the naysayers, I'd vote The Grudge.

I saw it alone.

In a theatre.

At midnight.

On an empty stomach.

Cold+Hungry+Alone+Dark+Grudge = Not a happy camper.

Oh my god. I had no idea. This could be the mind-blower of 2007 if they stick to the original plot.

But then they could pull a "Vanishing" act and totally neuter it of its shock value.

I cannot believe that he's making that movie again.
2006-10-03 09:15:08 PM  
Yeah the Ring was the scariest movie I had seen in years, the sequel blew, though.

The hitcher for creepy as hell (this could almost really happen) factor.

Student Body for being a cheesy comedic horror movie in the 80's.

A movie I saw not too long ago is Black Christmas (keep in mind it was filmed in the 70's) that is credited with the premise of When a stranger calls (the remake of that scared me, btw..only because my bf called my very loud cell phone during one of the ending chase scenes. I was on the couch in the dark and jumped so high I'm surprised I didn't hit th ceiling fan. Bastage)

2006-10-03 09:15:30 PM  
It doesn't really have the same kick on video (but I still love it), but Event Horizon scared the piss out of me at the theatre.
2006-10-03 09:16:43 PM  
I just asked my wife.

She blurted out, 'The Grudge'.

I've never seen it.
2006-10-03 09:17:25 PM  
here be the Reboot parody of Evil Dead 2 if anyone is interested.
2006-10-03 09:19:54 PM  
I saw Sleepaway Camp when I was like 9. Oops.
