dittybopper: Oh, another scary one: The figure in white from Exorcist III:

I still hold that as the scariest moment in any film. The whole Gemini Killer thing was just plain evil.

A random Gemini quote, thanks to imdb:

I like plays. The good ones... Shakespeare... I like Titus Andronicus the best; it's sweet. Incidentally, did you know that you are talking to an artist? I sometimes do special things to my victims: things that are creative. Of course, it takes knowledge, pride in your work... For example, a decapitated head can continue to see for approximately twenty seconds. So when I have one that's gawking, I always hold it up so that it can see its body. It's a little extra I throw in for no added charge. I must admit it makes me chuckle every time. Life is fun. It's a wonderfull life, in fact... for some.

Seriously, almost all horror movies are NOT scary.

1.) Jaws
2.) Deliverance
3.) Poltergeist
4.) Arachnophobia
5.) Piranha

These movies are legitimately scary, but Jaws by far has to be the scariest movie ever made.

One more tidbit on Exorcist 3 thanks to imdb's trivia section:

"Favorite film of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer."

Time to go watch funny puppy videos on youtube.

I have never seen as many people jump out of their seats in a theater as I did during that scene.

Definitely creepy, but hindered by the fact its a single scene in an otherwise silly movie.

C'mon, ya'll are hardly trying. You take a tall dude, put him in a monkey suit. Put a fancy jap TeeVee on his head? Now you're talking scary!

Oh, eeew. Knowing what he did to his victims...or their heads, rather...could they still...? Nah. No. I won't allow it.

Just eeeew, eeew, eeeeeeeew.

If an object can be a character, then I nominate the hotel from Kubrick's take on The Shining.

That's the exact scene from the Exorcist that I was talking about in my earlier post! That shiat scared me to hell when I was younger.

I know I should know what movie that ship is from, but I can't remember for the life of me.

I think that's from Event Horizon. Good damn movie.


I knew I'd seen it before. That movie was pretty creepy too.

I see this on here all the time. What movie is this?

Poltergeist 2. The movie isn't that great but Kane is. It's on Instant Play if you're curious.


Thanks. I will check it out.

liam76: SlagginOff: Pennywise is a great choice; I had plenty of nightmares about that farker when I was a kid

The book got to me, not the movie.


the movie got to me until i read the book, at which point i could still appreciate how much fun tim curry was having with the part and how well he would have done in a more serious version of the movie, but overall the movie made pennywise more of an oft-silly annoyance than the brutal murdering monster he was meant to be. but then again, the movie sucked the edge out of all of the movie for the most part.

to wit, the rock fight in the book was a big ordeal. in the movie it was one kid got hit by a rock and then they all ran away crying.

This (new window) Scene in Gargoyles used to creep me out when I was a kid watching the Halloween marathons on TBS in the late 80s/early 90s. Not so much now but when you're a kid the idea of waking up with clawed hands at the foot of your bed is pretty scary.

This movie scared the crap out of me when I saw it as a kid. Even to this day it's a pretty intense movie.
 
2011-10-27 04:46:10 PM  

Jake Havechek: Freddie is kind of cartoonish, though.

I always thought Michael Myers in the original first Halloween movie was terrifying.

Relentless, never hurries, can take multiple gunshots, can vanish in the blink of an eye. Jason Voorhees is just Michael Myers with a hockey mask and a machete.


It's because of all the cardio they do.

Leslie: "You have no idea how much cardio I have to do. It's ridiculous."
Taylor: "Why so much?"
Leslie: "Well, you gotta be able to run like a freaking gazelle without getting winded. Plus, there's that whole thing of making it look like you're walking when everybody else is running their asses off! And I gotta stay with 'em! It's tough, man."

dittybopper: You know what scared me way more than it should have:

[www.fantastique-arts.com image 554x400]

Dark Night of the Scarecrow


That movie was scarier than it had any right to be.
 
2011-10-27 04:48:06 PM  

Stimutax67: For me Candyman was the scariest character.
That coat with the gore inside, and the bees, and the saying candy man in the mirror...

titwrench: Has anyone seen High Tension. It's a French horror/thriller that keeps you on your toes. The only bad part is once you know the ending the movie loses its edge you can't enjoy it the same way again.


Plus once you know the ending, the bit with the truck in the very beginning makes no sense.

/still enjoyed it

Trilogy Of Terror and Jaws were the two movies that scared the living crap outta me.

Great movie!! Awesome twist! They're trying to do a sequel right now. They're selling "On Screen Deaths" to fund it. They've got a FB page if you're interested.

I tried to like the original. I really tried, but it's just missing a lot of the creepiness of the US version.
 
2011-10-27 05:46:13 PM  
My own personal list of horrors:

1. the Great White shark from Jaws
2. the giant Brazilian death tarantula from Arachnophobia
3. Every single spider in Kingdom of the Spiders
4. The alien parasite from The Thing
5. Michael Myers from the Halloween franchise
6. Jame Gumb (Buffalo Bill) from Silence of the Lambs
7. the stepmother from Cinderella*
8. the Zuni fetish doll from Trilogy of Terror

*obviously not horror per se, but she's a conniving, evil person. James Remar's psychopath in 48 Hrs also frightened me.
 
2011-10-27 05:48:15 PM  
not the scariest by far, but in the running for goofiest and most odd... the retarded ghost from thirst

[spinal meningitis sister from Pet Semetary]


Quoted for truth. I've always loved horror movies, and as a kid I think I watched them all. The spinal meningitis sister from Pet Semetary is the only thing that ever actually scared me.

/probably because I had spinal meningitis and was seeing my own mortality.

Michael Myers > all. I predict horror films will eventually be the big thing in video games. Remember Friday the 13th for Nintendo? OK now take that game and let Rockstar make it on a GTA engine.

My own personal list in no particular order:

1. Creepy twin girls from the original "The Shining"
2. Regan from The Exorcist. I hate the shot of her with the backwards head and the grin...
3. The kid scratching on the window in Salem's Lot. Took me til I was like 35 to sleep with a window open at night.
4. Dark Night of the Scarecrow
5. Man/Bear/Pig thing from The Shining.
6. Samara from The Ring
7. A movie called The Changeling from the early 80's I think. Scared the bejebus out of me
8. I wasn't scared of Jaws til my brother videotaped a shark attack while on a NOAA ship. Off the coast of Chile-you have all seen it on Sharkweek
9. Pennywise
10. Basically Ed Gein, John Wayne Gacy, Otis Toole, Dahmer and the rest of those freaks because they really happened

Great flick but there's isn't a monster in it, more of a presence. It still holds up, mainly due to George C Scott's fantastic performance.
