    What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen? Do you like horror movies? Why or why not?

    Mine was the Mummy's Hand from 1940 which was a black and white movie but I think it was the best ever. They just made better horror movies back then. My next one is the original Amityville Horror which was in 1979. In recent years I think a lot of nudity and vulgarity have been added to horror movies just to hold peoples interest. The recent Paranormal Activity movies are a little better.  And I liked the original Blair Witch Project movie though not the sequel. I don't think any part 2 is ever as good as the original.

    The Oscar for the best scary movie should definitely go to the Exorcist as it took deep roots in the subconscious minds of pretty much everybody who watched it, especially if they were still teen when they first saw it like me. Those make-up and voice effects and the staircase scene have quickly become cults in movie history. I suppose I like scary movies because most of them depict supernatural or fantastic events that take the audience away from real life for some time. And you're right, no sequel is as good as the original, maybe except for Batman Returns which I find to be as good as the first Batman movie.

    While I have great respect for the classics (Exorcist, Shining) my personal favorite is the 2003 Korean film, A Tale of Two Sisters.

    The Blair Witch Project would have to be the best one made in modern time. The Mummy's Hand is also my favorite.

    I don't like supernatural horror movies. They neither excite me nor scare me. I loved Shining for its intense storyline and suspense. 'The Descent' gave me some real scare mainly for its claustrophobic setting.

    There are only three movies that have ever scared me: The Omen, The Exorcist and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original cult classic). The music & the subject matter The Omen dealt with what scared the heck out of me about that movie. The demonic possession of young Regan in The Exorcist was too disturbing for me. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? It was the sound of the chainsaw, the imagery and Leather Face.

    I used to be a big fan of the horror movie genre when I was growing up, but now I tend to avoid them, because most are just plain garbage - especially the vampire & werewolf niche. I avoid any movies dealing with demonic possession! But I do watch some zombie apocalypse movies and The Walking Dead tv show.
