I have to say... I am pretty ok with that list.
2001-10-31 06:32:04 PM  
and I don't care what number post I am........
2001-10-31 06:32:48 PM  
What a crappy list. The only ones I agree with are The Exorcist and The Shining. All the rest just plain suck. Why isn't Alien on the list?
2001-10-31 06:33:11 PM  
Good list. Never saw Suspiria. I've heard it's plenty scary/gory though.
2001-10-31 06:33:44 PM  
Oh come now, you didn't think the Evil Dead was scary?
2001-10-31 06:35:20 PM  
all those movies are/were scary to some degree....

like 'em or not. Aliens does not deserve to be up there... NOT a horror movie.......
2001-10-31 06:35:30 PM  
Eh. They forgot The Changeling.
2001-10-31 06:36:14 PM  
Where's "Nightmare on Elm Street"?
2001-10-31 06:36:21 PM  
I guess I can live with this list...
Aliens isn't scary as much as it is action and freaky...

Am sad "Glitter" wasn't on it.
2001-10-31 06:37:08 PM  
"Glitter" should be 0 (i.e., ahead of 1)!!!
2001-10-31 06:37:23 PM  
Scariest Movie EVER!!!

2001-10-31 06:39:39 PM  
How about "Basic Instinct"? Glen Close topless, now that's scary!
2001-10-31 06:39:53 PM  
Not Aliens - that is an action movie. Alien - the first one, that is far scarier than Rosemary's Baby. Besides, this list say "10 Scariest Movies" not "10 Scariest Horror flicks"
2001-10-31 06:41:58 PM  
Must agree with you there, Ouroborus. Alien was much scarier that Aliens. Rosemary's baby had boobies, though, so by default it goes on the list.
2001-10-31 06:42:29 PM  
Where is Jaws or ?
2001-10-31 06:42:46 PM  
I agree, Alien was really farking scary, especially before all the clones that ripped off the plot. Ridley Scott rules.
2001-10-31 06:42:53 PM  
I can't believe they missed "The Stuff."
2001-10-31 06:43:21 PM  
Chainsaw, now that movie freaked me out. It wasn't even all that gory, just freaky!
2001-10-31 06:43:21 PM  
Silence of the Lambs?
2001-10-31 06:45:44 PM  
Silence of the Lambs definitely belongs in this list.
2001-10-31 06:46:14 PM  
I agree Alien should definatley be on the list. I agree with The Exorcist being the scariest, and The Shining being somewhere on the list is good.

Who knows maybe Bill Gates made the list it is on MSN.
2001-10-31 06:46:26 PM  
Hmmm...there's one they forgot.
[image from too old to be available]
Oh no! Not the Leprechaun!!!
2001-10-31 06:46:46 PM  
I guess no one can dispute #1 though. I saw "The Exorcist" in the theater last year. Nearly peed in my pants.
2001-10-31 06:47:08 PM  
pah! - my browser doesn't support
2001-10-31 06:47:18 PM  
2001-10-31 06:47:29 PM  
No Hitchcock? Come on, at least Psycho.
2001-10-31 06:50:17 PM  
I've been thinking about Psycho...most of his stuff is suspenseful but not scary. Hmmmmm.........
2001-10-31 06:50:18 PM  
[image from too old to be available]

Nobody will back me up on that?
2001-10-31 06:50:29 PM  
Maybe just the shower scene in Psycho. A lot of movies have individual scenes that are scary, but the movies in entirety are not. Like Scream. The first scene was one of the scariest I've ever seen, but the rest of the movie was kinda light-hearted.
2001-10-31 06:50:46 PM  
I'd recommend "The Hitcher" as well.
2001-10-31 06:51:22 PM  
Maybe Psycho should get a mention just because it was the first slasher movie. First good one, anyway.
2001-10-31 06:52:09 PM're right, SuperJoe. Psycho deserves to be on the list.
2001-10-31 06:52:18 PM  
where is "C.H.U.D." on this list?!?!?
2001-10-31 06:53:14 PM  
Jakjak...Glenn Close topless: you're thinking of "Fatal Attraction"...
2001-10-31 06:54:08 PM  
Sorry, Thorn. You're right.
*shoots self in foot*
2001-10-31 06:56:34 PM  
Basic Instinct has Sharon Stone showing off her hoo-haw to Michael Douglas and Newman from Sienfeld.
2001-10-31 06:59:29 PM  
Yes - Alien deserves to be on the list - does anyone else watch that movie and yell at the crew "fark that danm cat"

My nomination that has not been mentioned:

[image from too old to be available]
2001-10-31 06:59:31 PM  
I have to agree with whoever said Nightmare on Elmstreet, the first one was what a teen slasher movie was supposed to be, growing up around that time, that movie was a must rent for spending the night at a friends.
2001-10-31 07:00:23 PM  
What about Jacob's Ladder!!!????
2001-10-31 07:01:28 PM  
I mean look at it:

[image from too old to be available]

and that's a toy!
2001-10-31 07:01:38 PM  
I've never been more afraid than when Wilford Brimley looses it in "The Thing" form the 80's, though the movie as a whole doesn't cut it.. Also, nit-picking over the genre doesn't make sense to me. Scary is scary.
2001-10-31 07:02:52 PM  
Carnival of Souls is so NOT scary. I can think of several Twilight Zone episodes scarier than that dumb flick.
2001-10-31 07:03:05 PM  
Good call on "Jacob's Ladder."
2001-10-31 07:03:27 PM  
What about "The Sound of Music?"
2001-10-31 07:03:54 PM  
Wait a minute...What about Barbarella? Now that was a good whore movie!
2001-10-31 07:04:28 PM  
Its hard to believe none of Clive Barkers work made it. not that its overtly scary, but the way he makes terrible things so beautiful is more twisted than salem's lot for farks sake
2001-10-31 07:05:34 PM  
What? No Carrie? Even the edited version of that movie freaks me out. Although for me, the real #1 scary movie will always be The Birds.
2001-10-31 07:10:18 PM  
why am i the only one that didnt think the exorcist wasnt scary? i wanna be scared too :(

maybe i just wasnt in the right mood or something.
2001-10-31 07:11:01 PM  

*sigh* why am i the only one that didnt think the exorcist *was* scary. asfdkjahsdjkhfaksd
2001-10-31 07:11:06 PM  
Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
2001-10-31 07:30:25 PM  
Exorcist is #1! Yes!!!!
Finally, these duffurs get something right!
2001-10-31 07:31:47 PM  
Salem's Lot?? I think not.

Hey that rhymed
2001-10-31 07:33:32 PM  
2001-10-31 07:42:50 PM  
"The Serpent and the Rainbow" (?)
2001-10-31 07:44:00 PM  
What about the Chucky dude and the ventrolquist movie?
Forget the name but I love anything with Ann-Magret.
I know I;m old old but I'd still eat the popcorn...
2001-10-31 07:45:02 PM  
That's Ann-Margret and I'm...friggin old fart.
2001-10-31 07:47:48 PM  
For a good classic scare, watch Don't Look Now, with Donald Sutherland. I rarely find horror movies frightening, but after watching this movie alone in a dark room, my couch had to be steam-cleaned.
2001-10-31 07:48:20 PM  
Don't sweat it. I have that scene from "Bye Bye Birdie", where she is singing the title song and does that 'squeeze play' thing, forever stamped on my mind.
2001-10-31 07:48:23 PM  
"Lets Scare Jessica to Death" as number 1.
2001-10-31 07:51:24 PM  
come on...this is a no brainer.. Cool as Ice!

I have seen the stuff though...some of that was pretty darn scary...

They showed carnival of souls where I live when the mst3k guy came and gave a little speech...hilarious stuff.
2001-10-31 07:56:19 PM  
Billy Buna - Magic - Ann Margret, Burgess Meredith and Anthony Hopkins and Ann Margret's boobies.
2001-10-31 07:56:32 PM  
I agree, Alien should be there.

It is MSN, however. Think you can respond to Dan Fazio's opinion, hell no. Democracy for the mute.
2001-10-31 07:56:35 PM  
Sleepy Hollow was the latter, and made me the former.
2001-10-31 08:05:33 PM  
Thank, Nanook and Lurk.....AM still got it but I digress
2001-10-31 08:07:55 PM  
I am surprised that this classic was not on that list... seeing as how it caused a pretty major panic after it was released to the theaters.

[image from too old to be available]
2001-10-31 08:12:42 PM  
Why isn't "Night of the living Dead" from 1968 on that list. That movie scared the hell out of me and i saw it some 30 years after it was made. And the ending is freaking amazing!

2001-10-31 08:14:54 PM  
This. List. Is. Mediocre.

Vox8:I agree on The Thing. John Carpenter did a good job on that opposed to Christine...
2001-10-31 08:16:51 PM

2001-10-31 08:19:27 PM  
What kind of bullshiat list is this?
MSN can lick my nuts
2001-10-31 08:22:05 PM  
Event Horizon should be on the list. That movie still freaks me out in a few scenes.
2001-10-31 08:22:50 PM  
I really did like the Hellraiser movies... though I can't say any has ever scared me, thanks to these cursed powers of disbelief I've got. It'd be nice to really get into a movie and drop a load in my shorts in sheer terror, but I just can't.
2001-10-31 08:32:02 PM  
I went with my brother to see the Exorcist when it was re-released last year... That movie Still Frightens me...
2001-10-31 08:33:11 PM  
The 1st Hellraiser was kinda scary ...
2001-10-31 08:38:32 PM  
Otisburg.... it's a little bity place.... LOVE IT!

the list is fine. you all are trying to get in the most recent fad films..... the list STANDS FIRM...

like I wrote it, or really care... SCREW MSN..
2001-10-31 08:41:14 PM  
Yeah, Even Horizon is the scariest sci-fi movie i've ever seen, much scarrier then alien.
2001-10-31 08:41:43 PM  
*Event Horizon* not Even Horizon
2001-10-31 08:49:32 PM  
PHANTASM should be on the list too. The Tall Man and the way those movies were filmed were freaky as hell. And ya gotta love the flying spheres of death.
2001-10-31 08:55:38 PM  
After reading that WEAK list, I got to thinking about the films that have had me hiding behind the sofa.

1 to 5, 5 being a bit scary and 1 meaning nightmares for years.

5: Ghostbusters - I was young at the time, the bit where the ghost in the library goes schitzo still makes me shiver. Also the bit where Dana gets attacked by her chair.


3: Nightmare on Elm street - Something really scary about being killed while dreaming and effectively helpless that I really don't like.

2: The Watcher in the Woods - Disney film but scary as a Dolly Parton beaver shot. Lots of stalker view cam and jumpy bits. Watch it if you can find it.

1: Amityville (sp?) - The first "real" horror film I ever saw. Aged 11. I think my cousin was trying to teach me a lesson by not going to bed on time By far and away the scariest film I've ever seen. Still stands up today and pisses all over The Exorcist imo.

2001-10-31 09:01:35 PM  
Wow, I hated Event Horizon, and I didn't think it was scary at all. I thought it was an Alien wanna-be movie. I had just finished reading the Alien book when I saw Event Horizon, and was amazed at some of the dialogue and sequences that were almost identical to that book.

On another note, one of the freakiest movies I ever saw when I was younger was the George C. Scott movie, The Changeling.

2001-10-31 09:11:20 PM  
Klute, with Jane Fonda. Oops, HORROR movie. I thought you said...
2001-10-31 09:15:56 PM  
The movie that gave me nightmares as a kid was Invasion of the Bodysnatchers. It was probably the first movie I ever saw that the humans did not win. I also agree that The Omen needs to be on that list.
2001-10-31 09:17:56 PM  
Jiggawitz: If you filmed it, that'd be pretty scary.
2001-10-31 09:34:50 PM  
The list should have had Alien and Psycho somewhere on it. The Shining and the Exorcist both belonged there.

I didn't find Evil Dead to be scary at all. Campy and funny, yes, but not scary.
2001-10-31 09:37:03 PM  
Movies that freak me out at the ones that I would say scare me the most. Eventhough we all know that Blair Witch is fake, and I knew that when I saw it, I still sat there motionless for about 2 minutes after the movie was over. After I could move again, all I could say was 'Holy Shiat'. I think I let myself try to believe it was real just to scare the ca-ca out of me.

And I also thought that the idea of being able to be killed during your dreams scared me, so eventhough I though Freddie Kruger was a cool guy, Nighmare on Elm Street did scare me.
2001-10-31 09:39:07 PM  
Obvios that they have NEVER seen Ring, the scariest movie of all times. The Exorcist is just a good comedy compared to Ring

imdb link

[image from too old to be available]

This still sends chills down my spine
2001-10-31 09:44:04 PM  
I will play russian roulette again before I watch the Exorcist. That movie scared me.
2001-10-31 09:46:58 PM  
Clockwork Orange! Why the fark dont i see that anywhere?
Oh and how about IT, Guinea Pig, ETC? These people obviously havent seen enough Horror to judge 'scariest movies'. Evil Dead was scary ass, that i agree on... the rest is BS
2001-10-31 09:51:07 PM  
10. Schindler's List
9. Evil Dead 2
8. Evil Dead
7. Prince of Darkness
6. Hellraiser
5. Santa Sangre
4. Return of the Living Dead (last 1/2 hour)
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
2. John Carpenter's The Thing
1. Dawn of the Dead

Not all horror films, but all pretty scary. I put Schindler's List on there because it was the only movie I've seen in recent years that gave me a real scare (the shower/gas chamber scene made me want to crawl under my seat).
2001-10-31 09:52:40 PM  
Salem's Lot?? How about Salem's Not Very Much?

Jaws should definately be on the list. I know, it's not a horror movie, but it changed a whole nation's perception of sharks and the ocean. I'm an experienced diver, and I *still* have to force myself to relax for the first few minutes underwater.

There's something about having an emotionless animal larger than you look at you like you'd look at a hamburger....
2001-10-31 09:55:47 PM  
Alien and Blair Witch should also be there. I wasn't really scared at the time I watched either, but a couple of nights later, I couldn't sleep. Especially after BWP. I think there's something really scary about an unseen enemy. Your imagination runs rampant.
2001-10-31 10:01:17 PM  
Rhiannon- "Jessica" is without an equal. It is indeed the scariest movie ever made

Doctor X- I agree that "Don't Look Now" is one of the scariest movies ever made, although I am glad my couch did not suffer a similar fate to yours. On that note, I am glad you didn't see the movie at my house.
2001-10-31 10:03:32 PM  
How about disturbing non-horror movies?
Like "Eraserhead".
The only movie that ever kept me awake and pacing the floor at night thinking about it.
2001-10-31 10:13:03 PM  
"Eraserhead". That chick in the radiator was hot!
2001-10-31 10:21:06 PM  
someone, please say that Alien should be there a few more times! please? I am just still not sure, should Alien be on there or not?
2001-10-31 10:27:13 PM  
I'm glad The Blair Witch Project wasn't on that list. Stupid ass movie.
2001-10-31 10:30:40 PM  
Whenever someone makes a list of scary movies, they always leave out Nosferatu, It's still the scariest dracula flick
2001-10-31 10:38:31 PM  
We all know MSN sucks, but now we have more ammo for our anti-suck launchers aimed at them. "The Terminator (Schwarzenegger; 'I'll be back'; Sarah Connor; etc.) is frightening, and so is the sequel. I don't know what I'd do if a T1000 was looking for me, but I'd probably just let him stab me and get it over with.
2001-10-31 10:39:05 PM  
Kilgore40- Nosferatu is a brillant movie. Max Schreck as the vampire is still the scariest monster ever committed to film, and this was filmed in 1922.
2001-10-31 10:39:06 PM  
Glitter! Litter! Glitter!

A movie that scared the shiat out of me was, "When Michael Calls" A made for T.V. thingy with Paula Prentis, Ben Gazarra, and Michael Douglas. Still creeps me out.
The "I'm freezing to death where are you?" phone call gives me the willies.
2001-10-31 10:40:36 PM  
Oh, and "Halloween" should be in the top 5. Maybe the person who compiled the list couldn't stand the sequel, which just had to ruin the suspenseful ending.
2001-10-31 10:41:46 PM  
Event Horizon is a ripoff of Solaris
2001-10-31 10:41:48 PM  
Speaking of which, "Halloween" is on right now on USA.
2001-10-31 10:42:29 PM  
Dammit, it's the stupid sequel. Delete the last post and hide my ignorance.
2001-10-31 10:43:38 PM  
They also should've included the Island of Lost Souls.
2001-10-31 10:58:33 PM  
Could someone please explain "Event Horizon"? I just got confused, and started laughing at the ridiculousness of it.
2001-10-31 10:59:15 PM  
Solaris - damn good book! Not sure about the movie, never seen it.

Lem ownz j00!
2001-10-31 11:03:41 PM  
Stanislaw Lem is a genius, but not an easy read.
2001-10-31 11:04:26 PM  
"The Diary of Anne Frank"
2001-10-31 11:04:57 PM  
Anyone remember some movie where these monsters come out of mirrors or something? I only have the vaguest memory cause I saw it when I was really young.. and I was probably hiding my eyes the whole time.

I have to agree with the folks that said the Thing remake should be up there.. that movie is great! I love the chomping chest-mouth scene! Lots of fun creature effects in that one.

Why wasn't Showgirls on there?
2001-10-31 11:09:06 PM  
2001-10-31 11:13:40 PM  
oh oh what about that one about the science project that when awry leaving a scientist with an appetite for human brains!!

From Beyond!!!
2001-10-31 11:19:49 PM  
[image from too old to be available]
Also scary . . .
2001-10-31 11:24:13 PM  
Stanislaw Lem is a genius, but not an easy read.

For some reason geniuses rarely are.

Though I haven't noticed that with Lem that much - what language (and what translation) do you read him in?
2001-10-31 11:32:48 PM  
"Felicia's Journey"

All I knew when I bought it was it was an Atom Egoyan flick. I like the Atom Egoyan.
"The Sweet Hereafter", Good God! An Amazing, Amazing, Amazing soundtrack as well! Brilliant movie!

Anyhoo, If you're a Hitchcock fan, watch Felicia's Jouney.
2001-10-31 11:34:55 PM  
Excorcist is #1, I have to agree. Where is Alien? When I watched that I could barely keep myself in my skin.
2001-10-31 11:38:03 PM  
[image from too old to be available]

Ann-Margret is a genius....sorry
2001-10-31 11:58:20 PM  
Do you have any idea where I can get a copy of Night of the Lepus? I've been looking for years....if you have it I'd be willing to do a movie swap..I got a lot of b movies that are now out of print..

Poltergeist scared the hell out of me when I was younger....didn't help there was a tree outside my window..
2001-11-01 12:00:21 AM  
I'd think arachnaphobia would be on that list too somewhere considering that after that movie came out, arachnaphobia became the #1 phobia in this country...taking the place of speaking in public... what other movie can claim they did that to a nation!
2001-11-01 12:16:14 AM  
Czar: YES!

I really want to see this movie, it looks farking scary in a cool way
2001-11-01 12:43:49 AM  

Haven't a clue where to find a copy . . .
2001-11-01 01:41:48 AM  
The Entity! The Thing! Tourist Trap! and Saving Private Ryan....Just because it was so realistic...war is hell!
Jacob's Ladder....freaked me out for days later!
The Birds....saw birds on telephone lines for days after! lol
2001-11-01 02:14:57 AM  
Some scary scenes from my childhood:

- The Nightmare on Elm St. Part 3 - The kids in the hospital who are deaf/ mute start getting attacked by Freddy - after which he plays marionnete puppeteer with their veins

- [some one help me with the title i forgot] - the scene where a guy (?) falls out of the closet and shatters into little walking people. you know this one people. scene disturbed me for some reason

- The Shining - Nicholoson walking into room 237, slowly approaching what appears to be a beautiful girl in the bathtub.. then you know the rest

- Poltergeist - the girl calling out from within the house to everyone looking for her. Something about that movie brings back scenes of myself in front of the tv at 1am with all the lights of being eerily mesmerized by her voice. sorry for the moment

I have a strong stomach so no amount of gore can scare me really.. what catches me is the shiatt that messes with your mind.

anyone share my opinion?
2001-11-01 02:21:57 AM  
ACYD: You're correct about being mind-farked. That's why I agree with the Exorcist at #1. The movie plays on such an ingrained mindset of god vs evil, damnation and fear. The new version works well. I remember people throwing up and leaving in the middle of the theater when it first came out. I have friends who will not discuss this movie at all.
2001-11-01 02:27:34 AM  
"- [some one help me with the title i forgot] - the scene where a guy (?) falls out of the closet and shatters into little walking people. you know this one people. scene disturbed me for some reason "

It was The Gate. I think this film was only notable on its release for its use of CGI special effects.
2001-11-01 02:50:00 AM  
BILLY - for some reason Exorcist didn't fakr with my mind because I don't believe in god. So I kinda saw it from a neutral perspective. Its was actually kinda funny.

DOCTOR_X - thanks for the help. For some reason I thought it was some long title but I trust you.
2001-11-01 02:55:46 AM  
An extremely modest man was in the hospital for a series of tests, the
of which had left his bodily systems extremely upset. Upon making several false alarm trips to the bathroom, he figured that the latest episode was
just that, so he stayed put. Suddenly, however, he filled his bed with diarrhea and was embarrassed beyond his ability to remain
rational. In a complete loss of composure, he jumped out of bed, gathered
the bed sheets, and threw them out the hospital window.
A drunk was walking by the hospital when the sheets landed on him.

The drunk started yelling, cursing, and swinging his arms violently, in an
attempt to free himself of the sheets. He ended up with the soiled sheets
a tangled pile at his feet. As the drunk stood there,
staring down at the sheets, a hospital security guard who had witnessed
entire incident, walked up to him and asked, "What the heck
is going on?" The drunk, still staring down at the sheets, replied,
"I think I just beat the shiat out of a ghost."

"MANOS" The Hands of Fate

is the scariest movie ever.. but probably not in the way the director intended...

AcYdRlP69: The Gate was a good flick. I always thought of Geodes differently after watching it. Also, Poltergeist put me into a pathetic state of mind after I sneaked into the living room to watch it. My babysitter *told* me to go to sleep, but NnnnnnnnooooooOOOOO! I just wouldn't listen.

Ann Margret makes me think of "fur and early morning dew".

When I watched it with few of my friends two of them screamed and almost jumped at one point (one of them a guy, the other a girl) the rest of us just froze. The guy who screamed couldnt sleep that night and he kept a sheet over his tv for 3 days. Also I read a comment on imdb that some guy had a sheet over his tv for one week.
Both of my friends get this scary creepy feeling when we mention scenes from the movie.

And btw, we are all around 20. Go Watch Ring.

I can understand the sheet on the tv. Also, did he take any phone calls? :)

I hear the ending is a shocker, absolutely terrifying.

Did anyone ever see "The Hills Have Eyes."
I think it was Wes Craven's second movie.
How about the opening 1/2 hour of "Them"
Chainsaw Massacre shoulda been number 1
Of course I gotta agree that "Beaches" still sends chills up my spine - eeewwwwww.

oh yeah, my guy friend who screamed, when the movie had just ended, his cell phone rang :) he screamed again there :D

Recomend Ring2 also, just have to see Ring 0 now.

This list is pathetic, where's Beyond the Darkness, Cannibal Holocaust, Last House on Dead End Street, Black Sabbath, Men Behind the Sun, The Beyond, etc... these suggestions indicate people wo don't get out much, and when they do they only get as far as Blockbuster.

Now THIS was scary!

1. Jacob's Ladder. ("I'm not dead!""What are you, then?""I'm ALIVE!""Then why are you here?""I don't know...")
2. In the Mouth of Madness. ("Do you read Sutter Kane?")
3. Blair Witch Project

The first two were total mind screwers and preyed on my greatest fear. In that category, there's an episode of Star Trek:TNG with Riker in a play/ in a mental institution that freaked me out similarly.
As far as Blair Witch goes, I expected it to be dumb and not scary and, for the most part, it was. I was honestly totally surprised to find myself at the end unable to breathe, afraid to move, and dreading the walk home from the movie theater.

In the Mouth of Madness was just a good creepy movie. But those are the ones that I like. Gore is good, but gore doesnt' scare me, unless it's walking around killing people.

Event Horizon could have been so much better. Then it would have been r33t.

The first Halloween left me with the hall light on for a long time. I think curse of the blair witch is pretty scary. Just the part with the "Mysteries of the Occult" or something like that. Some freak ass hippie show with this dude and his bare chest, and a purple faggy robe "My name is so and so........and I'm a witch!" (cue stupid eerie music.)

I mean, I'm a pagan and all, but...damn, that guy was just GAY.

The Thing was excellent.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers was good too.

I like scary movies.

"Dead and Buried"

Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer"
2001-11-01 02:09:39 PM  
The scene in Poltergeist were the lights are coming down the stairs, and they look on the monitor and they see images on men wearing old hats... Whooo! Also, an old movie with Boris Karloff called The Devil Commands.

Went to see the Exorcist last year and I fell asleep half way throught the movie. Same with the Blair Witch movie. That was a lame movie.
2001-11-01 05:00:32 PM  
enent horizon was just disturbing.
Ive seen the ugly police crime scene photographs that they hide so none see them(i.e. people cominging suicide by putting a shotgun in their mouth and pulling trigger) and this movie was MORE gory then those photos.

When that psycho lady hammers his ankles with the sledgehammer, I swear I jumped out of body!
