What is the scariest movie you've ever watched?
So far, mine would have to be Insidious. What about you?
Insidious: beware of the demon who listens to old Tiny Tim records. That was a pretty scary movie actually. It's definitely on my top 5 list. I would say the first Paranormal Activity is my favorite of all.
I would have to say the directors cut of the 1973 film The Exorcist. That movie was so scary that I had to watch it during the day.
Definitely the Exorcist. That movie sill creeps me out.
I don't know why but I never found The Exorcist to be scary. Gross, yes. Entertaining, Yes. Maybe something is wrong with me.
I don't know but stuff about possession creeps me out. Maybe it's because I grew up in a Christian home and seeing stuff like that is just scary. That movie still scares me to this day.
I've never seen Insidious but I might check it out now.
The only movie that has ever truly frightened me to the point that it made it difficult to sleep was the Exorcist. I was unlucky enough to have read the book first at an early age. The visual interpretation was amazing. Friedkin is a master at whatever he sets his mind to.
Insidious is pretty scary up until the end...I thought that the ending was a little weak, but overall it's a pretty good movie
@ thefilmguy24 Yeah, the ending did drop the ball a little bit. I liked the direction that they took with the ending but I wish they made it as freaky as the first 2/3's or so of the movie.
I saw "the brood" as a child, it got stucked in my mind for a loong time.
Also love the Exorcist which was mentioned before.
I love horror films, but they don't generally "frighten" me. But there are two that kinda unnerve me. The first is Takashi Miike's Audition. It's a perfectly paced drama about a widower whose friend convinces him to hold an audition for a fake movie in order to find a potential wife. However, things are not what they seem and tension builds nicely until the final 10 (or so) mins, when everything goes to hell.
The other film is Martyrs, a French "torture porn" flick. What separates this from other films of that nature is that the tortures have motivation beyond simple sick pleasures (like you would see in Hostel) or revenge (which ultimately was what the Saw series ended up being about.) Martyrs is not that good a film, but the end that the villains seek made the film far more horrific than the gross acts that occur in the film.
Martyrs is one of my favorite horror movies but I have yet to see Audition.
i just couldn't get into Martyrs. At least it wasn't just completely laugh out loud bad like Human Centipede was.
Audition is just crazy towards the end...it's pretty gritty and makes you cringe just watching it...but it's a good movie. Never seen Martyrs yet.
THE EXORCIST continues to always scare the hell out of me. Though I know what's coming every time I watch it, there's something about it that keeps giving me the chills. Other movies that scared me include THE DESCENT, POLTERGEIST, and THE OMEN. I'm sure there's more, but those were the four that came to my mind the fastest.
Those are all really creepy movies. I hear that they are remaking Poltergeist which worries me a lot because I don't think they are going to be able to make it as good as the original. I feel that its one of the classics that should be left alone.
Well when I grew up... I lost interest in such things...but as a child I must say...the creepiest , scariest was (and i'm aging my self now) but the old black and white original (Lon Chaney) werewolf... that old gypsy... if anyone can remember was so creepy herself...
Two come to mind and I was pretty young, teens I guess. The old black and white Night of the Living Dead and Carnival of Souls.
Weird, surreal and left me feeling really strange.
There are a ton of scary movies out there and some have given me nightmares so it's very hard to choose. I would say the movie that creeped me out the most was Jaws, The Exorcist, and The Shining. But again it's very hard to say.
When I was little I watched a show which was really scary and affected me for quite some time. I don't know the name of it. Maybe someone will recognize it if I explain it. I'd like to see it again if someone knows the name. It was in 1958 or 1959, I think. The man, the main character (Tarzan? or someone) brought a blonde lady up from under the ground. There were pygmies underground. When the lady was brought up to the surface of land, she disintegrated before our eyes.
I'd have to say "The Birds" by Alfred Hitchcock. I still get chills when I see a flock of restless birds.
The Exorcist by far! I didn't sleep for months after that movie. Movies from then were just scarier. Also, any movie having to do with zombies. I just can't handle them.
The Strangers- Before watching the movie, my house was actually broken into so this made movie got to me.
Stephen King's novel, The Shining, was made into a movie starring Jack Nicholson. The memory of his crazy-angled eyebrows and his mad typing on that typewriter still bothers me to this day. In actual fact, the book was even scarier. I remember reading it at university; I had to sleep with the light on for days afterwards. *shudder*

by icountthetimes 9 years ago
As an adult, I very rarely get actually scared by movie anymore. I remember though when I was young I watched the Childs Play movie with the possessed doll called Chucky and it freaked me out. It seems absurd in retrospect because it's just a doll, but there was something about it that got under my...
