I have to say, I recently watched the new movie 'Paranormal Activity' and it has to be the freakiest thing I've ever seen. Especially becuase I've been told its a true story. This is the one movie that actually freaked me out and I love horror movies, and out of all the ones I have ever seen none of them got to me like this. I would deffinatly reccommend this!
The Shining is the one single movie based from King's work that I like. Actually, I love it - I'm a fan of Kubrick, and I'll always watch a movie if Nicholson is in it.
I think about it like a "based on a true story" movie, the book being the true story. The book itself is one of the very best.
The movie that actually scared me the most was Silence of the Lambs. I had to stop on my way home from the theater to get gas and I was terrified to get out of the car. (I lived in a very small town then, no people really out and about that late at night. Very eerie.) Then, when I made it home, I ran full speed into the house and slammed the door shut.
Movies don't usually continue scaring me after I've finished watching them.
I'm pretty disturbed by Paranormal Activity, it scared me because my boyfriend's brother told me stories of his night terrors and it's pretty similar to what happened in the movie, well not the parts closer to the end of it. Am I crazy for thinking about it all the time?
First horror film to win an academy award, if I'm not mistaken. I had not seen either actor before this film which made it more cool. It's easier to get into the character when you aren't familiar with the actors.
Yup it's true. I have trouble when I know the actor from a different film or show - it's hard for me to get into the new character when I recognize them from something else. For instance, Ted Levine on the show Monk. Seen it? He is still Buffalo Bill to me, it takes me right out of the story when he shows up on screen
the ring series. Oh and freddy. i watched freddy again last year and i still got nightmares lol! i think it scared me worse. the movies are not scary but somehow the bugger gets in my head while i sleep
The first horror movie to really scare me was "Lets Scare Jessica to Death." It is considered the break out movie for the modern horror flick. There are a lot mentioned here that will make hard to sit still.
Hehehe...I hear ya. I love horror movies, I used to watch them by myself all the time, but depending on the movie, I WOULD make sure all the doors were locked! Nowadays....I can't remember the last time I was actually...
I miss being scared by a story. More often than not, especially in the cinema, I find that what is presented as horror isn't very scary, it's just splashy. Anyone else feel this way? Anyone else miss being scared when...
I don't know what it is . . . I usually find a movie that is recommended by a friend that will break me.I, to this day, cannot find a horror movie that actually makes me scared. I'm not even a jumper. I guess I'm just...
