It came out In 1999 , totally creeped me out . And I am with the last person who posted ghost and monsters do not bug me . Movies about psychopaths do ! Like that one with Glenn Close and Michael Douglas that I cannot remember the name of right now .
i agree with The Shining and The Thing. The Shining never gets old, no matter how many times I have seen it! I just love that movie! and The Thing, with Kurt Russell - that was a totally absorbing film. plus I dug Kurt's giant hat!
House of 1000 corpses did not scare me..I do not scare easy..but it is my favorite horror movie.. the only hing that terrifies me in life is Clowns..and I do not know why, I will admit I can not even think about the movie IT without getting chills ..I could never bring myself to watch it..
To me, there is a difference between the scariest scary movies and the best scary movies.
I don't care to count how many movies have proven to be both excruciatingly scary and well, just plain excruciating to watch. (The entire torture porn sub-genre comes to mind.)The scary movies I like the best leave much more to the imagination, so they're as scary as the individual watching wants it to be. They rely on good storytelling with compelling characters rather than on gratuitous violence and shock value. I sometimes find them less scary, but better movies overall.
My favorite horror movies would include John Carpenter's The Thing, The (original) Haunting, Night of the Living Dead, the original Dawn of the Dead, and anything Alfred Hitchcock.
I don't really care for scary movies. So, I would have to say my favaroties are from the Scary Movie Franchise.
"interview with a vampire" Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt? Excellent! "Freddy Vs. Jason" I laughed my ass off! "Eight legged Freaks!" Funny/scary spider flick. "Arachniphobia." Spiders are icky! Wuss Alert!
Another really old one that I liked for some reason is "Burnt Offerings." Not too scary by todays standards, but, if I had the chance, I would attemp to do a remake. I know I could make it really creepy.
Hmmm I have a lot of favorite horror films. Friday The 13th is one of my favs cause of how Jason just seems to find you wherever you are at even if he is far away from you. I love Nightmare On Elm Street because Freddy cracks me up, also Halloween.
