    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!

        See why I take an attitude about e-bay whores?  There was NO comment to even hide the real, mercenary intentions of that last poster!

      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!

    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.

      1. wyanjen profile image81
        wyanjenposted 8 years agoin reply to 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. lol
        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.
        lol
        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 smile

      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.

        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.

          wyanjenposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Agreed.
          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.

    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?

    The psychological aspects of this film art amongst the best ever. They couldn't have picked two better actors for those roles.

    1. wyanjen profile image81
      wyanjenposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      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.

        1. wyanjen profile image81
          wyanjenposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          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 lol

            Denno66posted 8 years agoin reply to this

    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.

    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.
