My Little Pony was also a real chiller.

Graveyard shift owns. Everyone dies, sick humour, no hollywood romance crap, blood, gore and a menacing and cruel atmosphere. It's me in a movie.

Hehehe, my semi-sorta g/f is deathly afraid of clowns because of that movie Image
I love Event Horizon! That movie rocked
Hrmmm... But the scariest movie I've ever seen?
Wow, this is tough, I've been watching scary movies since I was like, 4.
I'd have to say the news... It's the scariest show I've ever seen... Especially when they're showing things like the stock market or Britney Spears' new Super Bowl commercial...
While I am half-joking, I'm fully serious about the news being the scariest thing I've ever watched...
And if anyone says Blair Witch, I'm gonna smack them Image

Hi5 Taegost!

I don't watch the news, its all bad, and isn't anything I can do anything to fix.

Pauly Shore is something we all wish we could disinvent, like the gas in The Rock.

As for an actual film, I like the classics, Hitchcock movies are classic. The Shining is excellent, Manhunter (prequel to Silence of the Lambs) ya gotta love a movie that manages to have the full version of Ina Gada da Vida in it, Hannibal (though it gave me the creeps for a bit) which I thought was the purpose of scary movies. Dual (John Carpenter's first movie) Dennis Weaver in a Dodge Dart with an unknown (and never seen) guy in a semi trying to kill him (more suspense than horror), Hellraiser and Hellbound (good creepy horror).

For really bad ones, most of the ones that came out when I was a kid, The Car, The Herse, All of the Friday the 13th after the first one, any sequal series other than Hellbound. Most Stephen King Movies... Maximum Overdrive anyone?

I like Pauly Shore, strangely enough... Hehehe, and actually, his movie "In The Army Now" reminded me that I had always wanted to join the Navy when I was younger, at a time that I was really considering what I was going to do with the rest of my life Image
I like the Friday the 13ths, too... Altho, I think 8 was funny as hell... Especially with the scene where Jason and that boxer dude are up on the roof Image
I haven't seen the last one, with Krueger in it...
Altho, even tho it's not a movie, but a freaky show is that ... Oh damn... I can't remember the name of it now... It's on Sci-Fi, it's a remake of an old series, similar to the Twilight Zone... Oh! Outer Limits... That's a kewl ass show!
But...
Now that I remember...
You know what the scariest movie I ever saw was?
Heavy Metal.
I saw it when I was 8, and it scared the living hell out of me!
I still love it tho... 2k wasn't as good, but it had a better soundtrack Image

Wasn't that a trilogy written by some obscure author? I think I remember seeing that at a haunted house in Michigan last Hallow's Eve, where the author was signing the books and the movies...

The Friday the 13th movies always struck me as more comedies than horror or "scary". Though most "horror" movies do... I guess I'm just jaded.

F13? And I'm suprised no ones mentioned, Leather Face or Nightmare on Elm St.

Seriously how stupid are these, someone is chasing me with a chainsaw, instead of running away like hell, getting a gun calling the cops. etc. etc. I'm gonna go hide in a room with only 1 exit. Scary? I think more comedy. But to some, i'm not one to judge.

My scariest movie was trolls, saw it when i was like 6, had nightmares for weeks, that and the night the sky fell, not quite sure if that's the name but like a '50's B&W flm, but i guess some horrors can terrify the crap outta 6 year olds.. Image

Friday the 13th 2 was scary for me. I had just finished watching it when I went to visit my father at his new farm. It's about 200 acres of thick woods in the middle of nowhere. Anyway was exploring the land on a 3wheeler and came across an abandoned shack built out of garbage sacks and rotten limbs. Seemed mighty similar to the shack in which Jason kept his mothers head in the refrigerator. Anyway, as I was speeding away as fast as possible I kept hearing the freaky Jason sonds in my head. Kill-Kill-Kill-Ah-Ah-Ah...
Spooky.

Bah,

Most horror movies are examples of evolution in action. If the people aren't smart enough to get away, they shouldn't be breeding.

Event Horizon was a freaky movie...I have to agree...one of my favorites. Image

There was this one movie I saw when I was like 5 or so...had this HUGE octopus thing that liked to hide under cars/steps etc, grab people and eat em. I remember not being able to be in a dark room for more than 10 seconds for a good year at least. Scared the living bejesus out of me!

The NoES and F13 movies were all kinda dorky imho. :P I have to agree with Shevy on Hellraiser. The Halloween series (when will it ever end!) is ok I guess.

Some of the King movie adaptations were well-done....some were "wtf?" types.

Other than that I never really watched many scary movies growing up.

Okay, if we're talking about movies that scared the bejezus out of us in childhood, there was one that kept me playing target practice with my bed from the light switch for years. I don't know the name of it, but it was about a cursed tiki doll with a golden chain around its waist that kept it in inanimate. The chain fell of its waist and it came to life and terrorized a woman in her home with a butcher knife.

There was another one about a couple who moved into a new home that just happened to be haunted by the creepy little remains of three sisters who had lived in the house before, but had been burned in their own furnace by the rest of the neighborhood for practicing evil witchcraft.

</B></font><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

If you mean the one about the guy in the little red car and the big crusty 18-wheeler, that would be The Duel, and the director was Steven Speilberg, not Carpenter. This was indeed the directors first movie, and he then went on to do Jaws as his next movie, which he viewed as 'Duel' in water.


My Scary Movie Scale: (Just in terms of scaryness, this scale has nothing to do with movie quality other then being able to scare me.)
* = I laughed instead of being scared.
** = I laughed and jumped, but it sucked when I got it home.
*** = Scared me in the theatre, but wasn't so grabby when I got it home.
**** = Scared the crap outa me in the theatre, and even when I watched it at home.
***** = Gave me nightmares.

Heavy Metal 1, the scene with the WW2 Flying Fortress piolets gave me nightmares when I was 8 or 10 yrs old when I saw it. Talk about creepy!
Rating as a child: *****
Rating as an Adult: ** (good classic/timless american anime)

Event Horizon, was just Pinhead in space. It was kinda freaky tho, mainly the ships log recorder showing scenes of the chaos world. Ewwwww!!
Scary Rating: ***

Hellraise 1 was pretty original and scary, before the sequels glamorized pinhead like Freddy and Jason Vorhees.
Rating: ****

Movie that scared the crap outa me for years when I saw it in the theatre, Alien 1.
Rating: *****
Very GOOD at suspense, and I HIGHLY recommend getting the DVD with the deleted scenes!! We MISSED A BIG SCENE that was CUT OUT!! (Aparently John Carpenter saw all these scenes, and incorporated some of their ideas into the sequel.)

Aliens (Alien 2) still gets my blood pumping when they motion trackers start going off! (IF you liked these movies too, I HIGHLY recommend playing Aliens Vs Predator 2 with a geforce 3 card!)
Rating: *****
Timeless. I love this movie and can watch it again and again, and still gets my nerves going.

Although it hat a corny premise and story, The Relic had me jumping out of my seat, when it was in the theatres mind you. I think the fact that I was with two jumpy girls helped speed up the blood.
Rating: ***
Good on a big screen, where the monster's size is wut makes is scary, but like Jurassic Park, you get the little dino at home, it's not so scary.


Taernil, I have Elmstreet 1 and 3 on Dvd.
Taernil says, 'I am the WIZARD MASTER!! In the name of Leoric, Prince of Elves, DEMON BE GONE!!"
Freddy says, 'Sorry Taernil, I don't believe in FAIRY TALES!'

But it's not scary, it's just funny Freddy.


All time scariest movie for me?

JAWS!!

I was scared to go in swimming pools alone as a kid.
Scared the crap outa me as a child for years. Talk about water fobia.
Someone just bought it for me on DVD, and that opening scene where the girl gets munch still freaked me out.
Rating: *****
Get the Dvd with the special features, there was a LOT that went into that movie. I believe it was also the highest grossing horror movie of all time for a while there. I'm not sure which one has topped it, if one even has.

Den den den den den den den den DENNA NAAAA

*CHOMP* *CHOMP*

Oh GOD IT HURTS!! IT HURTS!! PLEASE GOD!!!

Hehehe, how about the PuppetMaster series?
I LOVE those movies.
Either that or... What the hell was the name of it... Slugs?
The one with giant space slugs that like, crawl into peoples mouths and eat them from the inside...
I think that final scene was awesome when the guy was dousing them with gas and he had the duct-tape over his mouth, and for some reason, right before he drops the match, he takes the duct tape off... Image
