        I love those games and the movie. I even made a hub comparing the monsters between the two.

        And the Room Of Angel song i just kept listening to over and over when i played SH4. It's actually a really sad song.

    I prefer horror movies over love & drama. There are many good horror movies out there, Silk (korean), Silent Hill, House on haunted Hills, Lost voyage etc. Not a single movie scared me so far, (gory ones are ugly not scary). So can't say which one is more scarier than the other for me.

    Scariest films for me have been:

    The Strangers - Almost too real. It disturbed my wife and I for quite awhile. I kept checking to make sure the house was locked up.

    Signs - One of the first films to scare me in a long time. I live in the country... 'nuff said.

    The Ring/Ringu - Both of them gave me the creeps, especially Ringu. The dead girl in the closet.

    The Haunting - The superior original version. You don't see a damned ghost, but it's what you hear...

      Freakshow was a 2007 film from Asylum and was a pretty lame remake with typical Asylum production values (ie terrible ones)

      Freaks was a 1932 film from Tod Browning and is widely regarded as one of the scariest films ever

    The Ring was a freaky show for me. Mind you, watching it just before a summer storm hit added to the freakiness...

    I was watching the movie with my teenaged son and just as the movie ended, my room mate arrived home. We saw my room mate's truck move into the designated parking space, and as we saw her (roomie) cross the front yard to get to the door, movie credits rolling, eerie music playing, the phone started ringing...

    (My roomie left work early to get home ahead of the storm because she had heard a storm warning over the radio but the storm was just starting to 'pick up,' and had darkened the mid afternoon skies already...)

    As my roomie turned her key and opened the door, the phone had rang about three times and my son, who was still more than a little shaken by the movie, said, "Nobody is going to answer that phone..."

    lol
    ...so my roomie opens the door to my son standing halfway between the door and phone, with a look of terror on his face...
    "Hey, someone answer the darned phone, I can hear the phone ringing..." she says as she walks in...

    "Nope, that will not be happening, Sandy! NOBODY ANSWERS THAT PHONE!" my son replies - with very little tact and a great deal of "squeak" and excitement in his teenaged voice.

    ...and then the power goes out, the phone stops ringing and we're all standing in the apartment about 3 feet away from each other - the afternoon made dark in a matter of about 5 minutes (the last 5 minutes of the film).

    Spoooooooooky!

    Anyway, Sandy (not her real name) gave my son and I heck 'cos we watched The Ring first out of a stack of movies we were all going to have some quality time with. Sandy didn't end up WANTING to watch The Ring after her strange welcome home.

    lol

    I have not had the desire to watch that movie again since I watched it with my son, although many people have rented and invited me to watch it with them. (Yes, my son got rid of the 'creepy' feeling the movie left with him - but it took 10 or 15 minutes for him to figure out the ending and let it sink in, then move on to other things.)

    The movie ending, storm, phone ringing, and room mate's arrival all at the same time was an unlikely set of coincidences that made The Ring pretty darned spooky, indeed!

    Go figure!

    Poltergeist, Misery, Saw, The Amityville Horror, The Ring, The Omen, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Sixth Sense, Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and Halloween are all movies that scared the crap out of me the first time I watched them.

    The Ring, The Omen, and Rosemary's Baby are the only three that still give me some fear when I watch them now.

    I love scary movies!  I added a ton to my Netflix queue while reading this discussion, so thanks everybody :0)

    The scariest recent movie I've seen is definitely The Strangers (like many of you already said).  The Shining is my favorite scary movie, but the original Halloween is the best to watch on Oct 31st.  The opening sequence is to die for!

    Scream doesn't scare me, but I love it.  Plus, it gives great suggestions for other scary movies to watch.
