Following a new trend on the forums, I thought I would ask you what horror movie scared you (or creeped you out) the most?
For me it 'The Cottage'
I know 'The Cottage' was meant to be funny but it failed in the humour department. It just freaked me out.
What about you? What freaked you out?
So many to choose from, but for me it was "The Entity"... or maybe "Salem's Lot"..... or possibly "The Shining"..... sighs, a very hard choice to make.
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 remake of "Cape Fear." Come to think of it, the original was pretty creepy, too.
For some reason or the other--I cannot get over 'The Thing'(1982). Still freaks me out, and still I cannot watch it fully!
" Jaws "....It took me a long time to work up the courage to continue scuba diving after watching that movie...I still " feel " something down there, just waiting to come up and grab me...
I have never really been freaked out but i guess if I had to choose It be saw because the idea of putting myself in deep pain to survive makes my stomach churn
The Changeling - the old one with George C. Scott. It's a totally different story than the newer movie.
I have huge issues with 'The Shining'.
Namely I read the book first and the film is nothing like it. Kubrick wrecked 'The Shining' for me.
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.
The books that came first are always better if you ask me. Films at best are an imitation, frequently with a bit too much artistic licence used
AUDITION this Is a Japanese horror film that was made In 1999 , it was just totally creepy !
The Grudge the Japanese version, I hand a few sleepless nights after watching that film.
Mamma Mia - that was truly horrible. Please do not make me watch it again - those voices were in my head for weeks afterwards!
Silent Hill still freaks me out each time I watch it. The imagery is just terrifying!
I love silent hill!!!!!! love the dark morbid story line! Soooooo well put together I agree If something like that could happen i'd bee first in line to piss my pants!
Silent Hill is one of those films to follow in the footsteps of a video game. The Resident Evil films also did this, they're also quite good.
Blair Witch Project - I couldn't sleep with the light off for a good two weeks. So freaky!
That was love it or hate it movie. Nobody I know has ever said BWP is kinda good, or just OK. Love, or hate.
I loved it myself.
Once I tell people how they filmed it and how the actors were literally starving towards the end of the movie, they appreciate it more.
The techniques they used to get the actors to show real emotion is pretty crazy.
Method acting, but they didn't have to imagine it for themselves.
Couldn't get into this movie, too low budget for me, and lots of torches held under faces simply don't scare me.
The House of Blood (think that was the title) freaked me out.
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?
ooooooh, nothing but hot java here.
Sweet nectar, if you use enough cream...
So I have to ask: What are your thoughts about Silence of the Lambs?
Mermaid in the Manhole...best gross factor ever.
Orphan was actually creepy...pretty good film I must say. Pleasantly surprised.
The psychological aspects of this film art amongst the best ever. They couldn't have picked two better actors for those roles.
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.
You'd never seen either of them? Hmm. Perhaps it is for the best,although Anthony Hopkins is known for playing out-of-the-box roles.
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
Monk is Buffalo Bill and Antonio from Wings pretending to be detectives to me.
I must say that Tony Shalhoub does a spot on portrayal. It's like he was born for that role!
I have the entire season on my TiVo. Haven't watched them yet... It will make a great marathon if I play hooky & skip work one of these days..
Well, I'm off to make Daniel Carter's Quick and Fabulous Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup. Take it easy
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
Clarice...Silence of the Lambs was great. I didn't want to go to sleep after watching the first Nightmare on Elm Street, either.
None of them bother me. However, watching the "Faces Of Death" series with REAL stuff from the real world in it--that is unsettling. . .
Are you wearing a long overcoat and driving a scary truck?
Darkness Falls. Something about the Tooth Fairy totally creeps me out.
There's a movie called "The Descent" that scared me so bad I couldn't watch it all.
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.
I've watched scarier movies but the Sixth Sense terrified me. I guess it's all the ghosts that terrified me!
The Exorcist (all the versions) made me pee blood Also, there is the Omen, The hills have eyes, and the saw (if the latest three are considered horror)!!!
I think for me the scariest movie I've ever watch is the still "The Exorcist". Men it really scares the hell out of me. In fact, I had trouble sleeping alone after watching that movie...
Around Haloween I watched SAW on TV. (The one with weird experiments). It was the most horrific movie I've seen but I had to see the end, so was watching it a bit with one eye.
I thought that was bad and a few days later Ghost Ship was on and the first part of it - Oh my Dayz!!
So glad, Halloween is just once a year.
The Exorcist hands down. I went to watch it with a few of my friends. None of us went home that night preferring to crash at my friends house.

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 alone. Hmm. That kinda sucks.
