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.

To be honest, I've only seen parts of The Ring, but why is Samara so hard to kill?

What if the only TV you have in your house is one of those tiny 3" portables? Will a little tiny Samara come out?

Sequel-Freddy is cartoonish. He's just a total creep in the original and the remake. Regardless he'll find a way to kill you with your worst fear. The stalker slashers just kill you. Jason & Michael Meyers are more brutal, but Freddy does it right

I agree completely! I never had nightmares of Jason or Freddy after seeing their movies. Yet to this day, I still have nightmares of Xenomorphs. Damn things are scary as hell! Looking forward to the new game coming out... and the nightmares that come with it.

Myers and Voorhees are pure, unadulterated evil, Freddie prances around making little jokes.

The claw hand is way cool, though.

One thing I hated about the remake seemed to get rid of his weakness. If I recall, all original badies had 1 weakness. Freddy couldnt hurt you if you knew you were dreaming if I recall. So if you knew it was a dream, hes powerless. Yet it shows he was able to over come that weakness.

Pretty sure she's not a tangible being when she comes after you. I didn't find her to be half as scary as then entire mood of the movie. The tapes from the mental/psychiatric sessions stick out.

I think I saw that one years ago. Seen most of them but I was younger. Saw the new one and thought it was pretty decent for a gorror. Fredy to me isnt scary cause well, I tend to dream of many kick ass weapons for him to own me.

It is.

Krueger is a high concept supernatural type who can get you through your dreams, through your brain waves, not a semi human homicidal maniac that does not talk and travels to who he wants to kill by any means possible, also killing anybody who gets in his way.

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.

Beats Freddy and Michael hands down for scary .

Consider yourself lucky if all he does to your face is rape it.

Even if you leave the country he will be waiting for you when you get off the plane. He's just so much SMARTER than you that he'll get you no matter what.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow


I recently watched that for the first time since it aired. It's even creepier for me now that as an adult, I picked up on the creepy pedo vibes off the Charles Durning character. As a kid, I never understood why this mailman had such a hang up over the girl's friendship with the older retarded man. I remember thinking, "you're not her father. What's it to you?". Now I get it.

Because she's the malevolent spirit of a psychotic high-level psychic and telekinetic that was murdered by her adopted parents via live burial at the bottom of a well. Pre-death amorality, traumatic life, horrendous death, and almost god-like mental abilities; she doesn't just hit all the traditional markers for "ghost", she knocks them out of the park with bases loaded. In fact, you can't even get rid of her like with most spooks; all you can do is placate her by "solving" her murder, then making another tape and helping to distribute her malice to others.

I've never really found traditional horror movies frightening, but the gorier zombie flicks always gave me the spooks something fierce. Kind of odd considering how under-powered a zombie is compared to Jason, Meyers, or Freddy; maybe there's some sort of crowd-phobia mixed in there.

I like it but the end scene ruins it for some.

Also, I'm not sure if it classifies as horror, but it made me jump a few times.

I thought of that too, but I think he's more "cool" than outright scary (plus his appearance is sort of brief). One of my favorite movie villains is Ledger's Joker, for example, who's certainly a serial killer, but falls more under the "awesome" category than being outright frightening.

Similar with someone's mention of The Thing earlier.

I just remember growing more and more uncomfortable as that scene unfolded, which is a rare thing for me. The theatre went completely silent, too, as people stopped munching popcorn and went to slack-jawed staring at the screen.

2011-10-27 02:21:30 PM  
That list is all kinds of wrong. I mean yeah, Freddy was scary in the first movie, but he was more comical in the rest. Jason on the other hand, that shiat was scary. Dude never ran, just plodded on knowing he was gonna hack you to shiat with the machete, or smack your sleeping bag up against a tree with you still in it. Samara was creepy as shiat, Pennywise was scary in both the book and movie. Candyman should have been higher on the list as well. That movie creeped me the hell out the first time I watched it as a teen.

My personal list of creepy/scary

1. Samara
2. Pennywise
3. Candyman
4. Mike Myers/Jason Voorhees, together since they're essentially the same character.
5. Regan (little girl from The Exorcist) there was a scene where she's stabbing herself in the crotch with a cross shouting "Let Jesus fark you!" that creeped me the hell out.
6. Hannibal Lecter,. Dude was scary creepy in Silence of the Lambs
7. Freddy Krueger
8. John Doe from Seven (the sheer dedication and will he applied to the shiat he did is scary as fark)
9. Leatherface
10. Cenobites from Hellraiser (only if we're talking the first 2 movies, they ceased to be scary after that.)

Ringu was 50 times creepier than The Ring. Even with English subtitles, The big payoff scene looked much more real than the American version.

Krueger became a joke in the sequels, but hands down, the scene where the teen is running in the alley and he simply extends his arms all the way across... as a kid that scared the shiat out of me. Jason you could outrun or out dodge. No such luck with freddy. He only toyed with you, he owned your ass.

Face it, we all had plans for what to do if we ever faced a movie monster.

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.


Freddy became increasingly... Jokerish over time, his most serious portrayal was in the first movie.

Personally I think there is something to be said for the devious, cunning, spite-ish evil of Freddy over the simplistic killing machine evil of Jason and Michael Myers. Those two are more like forces of nature, they aren't clever but they do not stop, they're more like singleton zombies of unusual size really, the only cleverness these two display is an unnatural knack at staying out of sight until you start taking off your clothes. Both are scary but in a quite different way than Freddy, in general I prefer the thinking-evil but at the same time find the mindless-evil to be harder to screw up in the writing process When Freddy is done *right* he kicks butt, when the writing falls flat he is just awful.

The thing that scared me the most was the creepy malevolence of a possessed little girl giggling at the death of a priest:

It's a rare horror movie that is actually a good movie, as well as being very creepy at times. It goes easy on the jump scares, aims more for a lingering dread feeling.

/my opinion
 
2011-10-27 03:23:48 PM  
Freddy has always been my favorite, simply because he was in your freaking HEAD!! No matter how hard the town tried to get rid of him, all it took was one person remembering or reading something and he was BACK! Yes, the sequels got silly, but they were still great IMO.

Candyman was another of my favorites. Much prefer the mental horror monsters to the hack/slash monsters.

/Fark the Ring. It sucked.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

rickycal78: T. Jason on the other hand, that shiat was scary. Dude never ran, just plodded on knowing he was gonna hack you to shiat with the machete


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"

MagSeven: Dr. Horrible: MagSeven: What's that?

Let's Scare Jessica to Death

I'm gonna check that one out. Been watching a lot of old and new horror flicks this year. Thanks!


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.
