Horror might be my favorite genre, but yet the movies generally don't scare me. Creep me out, disturb, make me feel uneasy, sure. But Im having trouble of thinking of films that scare me. As a kid, sure there were plenty.

Has anyone seen the French horror film Martyrs?

Your momma's sex tape.

In all seriousness...

Umm... to me, Paranormal Activity, was the scariest that I've seen. The reason being is because of the atmosphere I was in and the actual content of the film. I was alone in a 10 bedroom house at 2am, while downstairs in the family room of an open floor plan. The only light that was on was the one from the TV. I was brilliantly smart and decided to watch Paranormal Activity on DVD for the first time.

If you have seen the movie, you'll understand how the content in the movie can really fit well with the atmosphere. The night scenes always made me shiver in fear, especially the shots with the camcorder. Just the atmosphere itself of the film scared me. I get scared a lot more by suspense and darkness than by like gore or some monster. It's the fear of the unknown that is the most terrifying and exciting.

I usually never watch scary movies by myself but for this one, I wanted to. I will sometimes watch them with just a friend or two because I don't want to watch them with a whole group of people because it brings a sense of security, which will make the films less scary.

A film that I'm very much looking forward to is The Lady in Black. If you have never seen the play in London, you must if you ever visit there. Try to see it though during an off night (not weekends, not during major vacations, night shows, etc) because the crowd will be less.

Poltergeist always got me as a kid! Theres a film made in the 60's called The Haunted, or The Haunting or something - that was pretty scary as well from what I remember!

I saw it thrice. Once in theater, another time on DVD at home w/ the gf and once downloaded on my PC (alternate ending).

I really didn't find the movie scary at any point. I felt that I could fairly predict what was going to happen in each ongoing scene. The only time I jumped was b/c my old lady jumped and scratched the hell out of my arm when Micah was thrown at the camera (which I knew was going to happen due to the trailers of the movie).

Well it's really not a movie but the only movie that I saw that gave me repeated nightmares was Faces of Death. I remember watching it with my older brother and his friends, I swear I had nightmares about people getting electrocuted and shot in the head for months. AAARGH...And you know what's messed up, this movie is on blu-ray now!! WTF. Saw it at frys. I bought it for my kids to watch. jk.

I have never been scared by a movie, but the jump scenes in The Ring made me jump. They're just corpse shots, but they still give me the chills to look at -- a little, at least. I'm talking about the one with the mouth gaping open unnaturally wide and the skin looking like it's been soaking in water for a week (the intention was to make the face look scared to death -- literally -- and the skin look, well, like it's been in a well for a week).

So when I got it on DVD, of course I took screen captures. Then I went on Google and found a production still of it, the frame wasn't in the movie, it was lighter, zoomed out more, clearer, more realistic.

Now, with regards to disturbing, I've seen much worse. The most disturbing film I've seen wouldn't be called a scary movie, but it depicted realistic child abuse on camera (and not just the hitting kind, either). I am quite certain I will never see a "scary movie" that will bother me as much as that one.

The Exorcist 1 gets my top vote. And my aunt actually had a Ouija board too???

Faces of Death....nice. That reminds me, I have to put them on DVD and watch em soon.

The Shinning was nice too.

I feel like the "right" answer is always the Exorcist. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the horror genre, but the ones I've enjoyed for (whatever reason) are:

-Silent Hill
-The House on Haunted Hill
-The Exorcist (it may be cliche, but it's cliche for a reason)
-The Shining

The Thing (by John Carpenter)

Just a great frikkin' movie!...the one in Antartica, remember? MUST see.

Also, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is good.

Props to The Shining for just being awesome, though not so much scary.

Forgot about The Thing. My kids are too scared to try to sit thru the movie. They sat thru The Exorcist tho.

Most of the best horror movies were made back in the day. Now a days, u find one or 2 good ones sprinkled in here n there.

For me, originally it was Evil Dead, but that was scary until I realized that it was supposed to be funny. no I find it hysterical (I love bruce campbell).

I don't know that I find any movie scary any more, but the most disturbing movie I have seen in a long time is probably se7en.

That movie still gives me the creeps. That plus the good guy gets it in the end.

Aahh I forgot about Evil Dead...

Yea...I definitely gotta add that to my list. Its supposed to be funny? Maybe the other ones, but 1 is scary as hell. That reminds me....gotta see if it passes the kids test. If they both run outta the room, its scary...lol Especially my son. He kinda likes scary movies.

Seven was nice. Ending always gets me, even tho I know whats coming. I feel so bad for Det. Mills...

DET. MILLS!!!!!!!!!

i dont whether to call it scary or not but one movie I simply could not sit through and I ended up fast forwarding to the end. I really couldnt even bare to watch, I was to the point I became pale and became extremely agitated and nervous: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the new one, not the 80s one). I think its mostly because of how graphic it is, it was too much for me, I couldn't handle the overall feeling of that movie for some reason.

That being said, I was able to sit through movies like the exorcist, paranormal activity, hostel, etc, with no real problem.

I found blair witch annoying. Too much screaming and not enough storyline. That and all the camera jumping made me nauseated. I actually thought part 2 made for a better scary movie, even if it was predictable.

Another good recent one was The Descent.

most horror movies arent horror movies anymore, its all about gore and shock factor...

what actually surprised me was Boogeyman, its pg-13, lmao, pretty good job of a scare flick for a pg-13 movie.

Could not agree more, to me the best horror flicks have been the ones to leave your mind to imagine and not necessarily show everything. BTW, IT still comes first to my mind when thinking of the scariest movies I've ever watched. And to think that IT was shown on national broadcast stations. I remember when my sister and I watched IT on tv, she was so scared that she slept in my room that night. And my wife got freaked out by I am legend, she was afraid to get out of bed at night for like a week.

For me it has to be 'The Burning', seeing it at a young age, the synth score freaked me out and the anticipation of the horrific burns of Cropsy .

Also was reluctant to answer the door on a foggy night after watching John Carpenters 'The Fog', another atmospheric film with a great music score

It may not have been the scariest movie I watched as a kid, but damn was I affraid to get near anything that remotely resembled a drain for god knows how long. I also like to think that I can thank IT for my long standing hatred of clowns.

And yes, IT was the first thing that popped in my head from reading the title.

I'm not sure it could be considered the scariest movie of all time, but Stephen Kings Rose Red is a really good movie. But beware, it is like four hours long.

There are a few for me. The Exorcist, The Descent, The Blair Witch Project really ruined camping for me. When I was a teen The Evil Dead got me pretty good. It was just so crazy with the girl all freaky looking screaming from that hole in the floor. When I was a kid Salems lot got me hooked on Stephen King books. Dont be afraid of the dark was good when you are young. Can't wait to see the new one. I also was pleasantly surprised by Jeepers Creepers. The first Halloween with that keyboard theme was great for its time. I could go on...

It wouldn't call it scary, it's not even a particularly good film, but Signs freaked me the hell out when I watched it, I was probably 13 at the time.

It's not scary or a horror, but it has moments that mess you up. Like the part with the alien on the roof or when Mel Gibson turns round walking through his corn field and sees a leg disappear off the path. Stuff shits you up something good.

I love scary movies. Two of the scariest to me were:

Jacob's Ladder (Wild, supernatural psychobabble BS)
Hostel (it's amazing what people will do - I could really see this type of thing happening, just like in the short story The Most Dangerous Game, upon which (I think) that the Ice-T / Gary Busey movie Surviving the Game was based...but then again, a lot of people have told me that I am a sick F....)

Wrong turn wasn't bad either in terms of gore and scariness, but it was just a bit cheeky...
