Ant: Tyrone Slothrop: I'll take Sadako over Samara any day. This is all we ever see of her face:

I tried to like the original. I really tried, but it's just missing a lot of the creepiness of the US version.


It was the opposite for me. The tone of the original was creepy as hell. The remake just... felt like it was trying to hard, and completely lost all creepiness for me. And the goofy death faces made me laugh. I'll take the original's "look like the genuinely died of fright" expressions any day.

... Though Kayako from Ju-on/The Grudge still wins for scariest character to me, even if I like Ring better.

You missed an obvious one

Also whatever "thing" is responsible for Silent Hill. It's not Alessa, she just assisted it.

It's a common mistake, but they listed the wrong Mike Myers. Loads of people enjoy the campy kitschy fun of "Halloween" and its sequels, but just try finding anyone who won't run screaming from The Love Guru or Shrek 4.

2011-10-27 11:47:28 PM  

the money is in the banana stand: 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.


Bingo. +1 You are the first person I have seen that shares this opinion on Jaws. I love horror movies. But Jaws is the scariest movie that I have ever seen to this day. I scared myself recently watching the original trailers on youtube. Saw Jaws the summer it was released in 1975. I am creeped out just writing this.

Scary stuff is what Halloween is all about. (new window) The more tongue in cheek, the better.

Grady: Your son has a very great talent. I don't think you are aware how great it is. But he is attempting to use that very talent against your will.

Jack: He is a very willful boy.

Grady: Indeed he is, Mr. Torrance. A very willful boy. A rather ... naughty boy, if I may be so bold, sir.

Jack: It's his mother. She, uh ... interferes.

Grady: Perhaps ... they need a good talking to, if you don't mind my saying so. Perhaps ... a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches and tried to burn it down. But I corrected them, sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I ... corrected her.

/Not sure if Mr. Grady is my vote for scariest of all time, but the memory of him in that scene sent a real chill up my spine, unlike anyone else that's so far been mentioned.

Lumbar Puncture: 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.

Yeah, I was frightened by how they took Dean Koontz book Intensity and gave it a worse ending.



High Tension is nothing like Intensity. At all.

Also cant believe it took so long to find some Grudge love. That pair farking scared the shiat out of me.

No love for the Blair Witch? You never see the coont and shes scary!

Dark Night of the Scarecrow is farking tits. A great scary movie for kids.

This thread gets a +1 from me.

Jason ran in parts 2 and 3. He kind of fast walked in The Final Chapter.

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.


Prequel. It's "Before the Mask"

If you have access to the Turner Classic Movies, it is scheduled to air NEXT Friday (the 4th) (or, if you want to get technical about it, early Saturday [the 5th]) at 2:15 a.m.

It's one damn eerie (and terminally unsung, IMO) flick.

When I was a wee youngster, my father watched a lot of horror films with me. One year, on a night near Halloween, he had me watch the original, revenge, and warriors . (Really pisspoor VHS copies.) Afterwards, he dragged me out to a haunted house. It was your typical attraction with all the "hot" scares of the year. I didn't flinch at the performers in Jason Vorhees or Michael Myers costumes. Nor at most of the other standard fare of loud noises, fake blood, and electric
chairs.

But when a guy in a striped sweater and Freddie Kruger mask jumped out at me, some primal fear response welled up inside me. I kicked the actor in the shin and then punched him in the nuts with my little fists.

Out of all the fantastical horror characters, Freddie made me feel the need to defend myself. If that isn't fear realized, I don't know what is.

tl;dr I'm okay with Freddie at the top. He toyed with people, willfully gave them hope, and then brutally tore it away from them.


/but if it was a poll of "Horror Fiend you'd most like to share a pint with." I'd go with Warwick Davis hehe

Jake Havechek: yves0010: Sybarite: Does The Thing count as a character? The whole arm bit/spider head scene was one of the scariest things I'd ever seen.

[images4.wikia.nocookie.net image 640x360]

I dont think it counts as a character as in a tangable person / creature we can think about. The Thing has to many forms and could be anything it wanted to be. But yes, on my list, the Thing is near the top.

Yeah, The Thing is pretty terrifying, especially if you can't tell who it is inhabiting. The scene where they are testing the blood made me jump the first time I saw it.


I knew that was coming cause i saw the South Park episode long before I actually got to see the movie. So I wasnt a jumper for that scene... But I hate the dog scene. I really hate it
 
2011-10-28 09:06:49 AM  
my personal list

1) Xenomorphs (Alien(s)) - Only monster to give me nightmares
2) The Thing (The Thing) - Just a creepy concept
3) Bruce (Jaws) - Cant swim without thinking about sharks
4) Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lamb) - Just out right creepy
5) Father Lucas Trevant (The Rite) - The way Anthony Hopkins portrays him creeps me out
6) Spiders (Arachnophobia) - I happen to be Arachnophobic

if games count

7) Necromorphs (Dead Space) - They are freakin creepy in general... worse then zombies though they are zombies
8) Everything in Eternal Darkness (Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem) - Its a horror psych came done right
9) Everything in Archstone 3 (Demon's Soul) - Just try it and you see
Heres a vid of a small part.
10) Everything in Archstone 5 (Demon's Soul) - Yes, creepy as hell itself.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow

That movie was scarier than it had any right to be.


Amazing what you can do with a good concept, and without a crapload of zombie makeup.

The Martian Manhandler: Raug the Dwarf: Forgetting about one little gem here guys that had multiple scary moments in it...but this story freaked me the fark out as a kid....


[2.bp.blogspot.com image 400x223]


The kid scared me and the John Lithgow remake part scared the hell out of me too.

This image from Twilight Zone kept me from sleeping for days when I was young[1.bp.blogspot.com image 400x223]:


There were just so many genuinely creepy parts towards the end of that movie. Still kind of freaks me out.

TCM is showing that? Awesome. It scared the crap out of me as a kid, and I when I re-watched it a year or so ago I was surprised that it was still pretty damn creepy. I get a similar vibe from the previews for "Martha Marcy May Marlene" although I know nothing about that one yet.

And just cuz this thread still has a bit of a heartbeat:

Patrick O'Neal is the real villain (and a damn horrifying one) but robot Katherine Ross and her upgraded boobs was this movie's money shot.

Oh yea, I agree with you 100%. It's definitely a watch it once type of movie. The ending will kill any suspense for a repeat viewing. Fantastic movie though

I watched Rob Zombie's Halloween II and good lord I was scared. That movie was really scary.

Those scenes in the water are some of the most tense scenes ever.
In my opinion.

I watched it 3 times
1. Oh wow! Really?!
2. Well there's no way {name redacted} could have done that when.................
3. Well I guess maybe if (insert personal theory with no real basis in science or psychology)

Ah yes, the tall man from Phantasm. Should be on the list for sure.


I wanted to make sure this was covered.

Also, I first saw The Lost Boys when I was about 9. To date, it's the only movie to scare me badly enough to not sleep.

someonelse:

TCM is showing ["Let's Scare Jessica To Death?"] Awesome.


Well, it's scheduled to air anyway. TCM does have a history of scheduling things to air and then pre-empting it at hour 11:59 for a different program due to either failing to secure the rights or because their Standards and Practices department nixed the airing.

Especially things scheduled in that time slot. Happened just last month when they were scheduled to run a clipjob* movie called "Zombiethon" at roughly the same time but the S&P department wussed out at the zero hour and pulled the flick because they felt there was too much unclad nubile flesh, profanity and gore for the 2:00 a.m. TCM audience. So they ran a fairly decent fifties flick called "The Zombies of Mora Tau" in its stead.

*no, seriously. It was a flick that was comprised of scenes from all kinds of different low-budget zombie flicks with a wraparound story. It's on Netflix instant.
 
2011-10-29 07:24:29 AM  
And no, I do not recommend to anybody that they watch "Zombiethon". I found "The Room" to be better made (and more entertaining). That's not a compliment.
