O/T - scariest movie you have seen

(monkeyskids gave me this idea.....)

when you where a youngster - the birds, Alfred Hitchcock...after that movie I opened my budgie cages and set them all free, no bird would ever eat my eyes out.... I was about 10 years old.... then I saw the movie again as an adult and I could not believe how scared I was...

as an adult
The Descent 1 and 2...... I still have nightmares

The Exorcist, Alien, and The Shining all freaked me out as a youngster. The Exorcist, mostly.

As an adult, nothing really scares me anymore in regards to horror flicks, but I will say that The Strangers rattled my nerves a wee bit.

It takes a lot to scare me

It takes a lot to scare me cause I LOVE my horror flicks!! And honestly I find most so called horror flicks to be just more gory than anything.. like the SAW movies, Friday the 13th, etc.

The ones that scare me are the demon/devil movies. The Exorcist and the Omen scared me as a kid. I time I see a kid with the name Damien I think EEEEKKKKK who the hell names their kid that after seeing that movie!!????

As an adult, I have to say the Paranormal Activity movies scared me. I watched 1-3 all in the same night and was actually scared to go to bed for weeks after that!

Me too Daizy!!! As a kid The Exorcist scared me. I read the book first and only once.
I also watched (thru my fingers) the Paranormal movies. I watched the first one 3 times before I would watch the last 5 minutes.
Halloween is my all time favorite and will watch over and over again.
As an adult - The Strangers. If you saw where I lived you would understand that my entire family, DH included, made sure every night that we left every outside light on including inside the garages.
These are framed an spread around my house as valentine's decorations. We add a little gore to every holiday.

Lights Out was the last scary

Lights Out was the last scary movie I watched. It freaked me out. DH wasn't into it and went to bed half way through. I ended up having to shut it off and finish watching the next day Laughing out loud I can watch all the scary movies in the world as long as someones watching with me. I'm a puss when I have to watch them at night, in the dark, by myself. Laughing out loud

Has anyone watched before I wake? I want to see that one.

ETA: That movie Annabelle was pretty freaky too.

I'm not into horror movies. I have an extremely vivid imagination and horror movies give me terrible nightmares. Never seen The Exorcist or Silence of the Lambs and have no plans to ever do so.

Amityville Horror freaked me out big time - much more so than Poltergeist.

I prefer suspense and thriller movies. Memento is one of my faves.

Love love love horror films.

Love love love horror films. More into paranormal/monster movies than slasher stuff. My nominees:

Vintage horror: "The Haunting"....not the vapid 1999 remake, but the original 1963 version. Still creeps me out and I try not to miss it whenever it is on TCM.

Current: "It Follows"....I was glued to the screen trying to figure out who was real and who was a demon.

Other faves: Jeepers Creepers 2, John Carpenter's The Thing, The Grudge, original Rosemary's Baby and 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I forgot about the Haunting..

I forgot about the Haunting.. the old black and white one! When I was a kid, on Saturday afternoons at 1 pm there used to be a show called Monster Movie Matinee and they would have all the old scary movies.. like the Haunting, Swamp Thing, The Fog, stupid crap like that! I NEVER missed it!! I do remember that movie scaring me. The remake was dumb. My mom and I were just talking about the original at Christmas time, she said it was the first scary movie she ever watched when she was 12!

Right ON, TexasPickles!

'The Haunting', 1963 version with Clare Bloom and Julie Harris was such a classic; "In the night, in the dark!" 'Rosemary's Baby' was equally terrifying; clearly, we have the same taste in scary movies. The unseen can be so much more frightening than gore and guts, 'eh what?

They came out as a double feature at the drive in near our house when I was ~11. My friends and I had a sleep over and after sneaking out of the house we hiked a mile or two to the theater, crawled under the fence to sneak into the drive in to watch the double feature. On the walk home we were freaked out. It was a cold fall night and there were leaves blowing all around with rustling noises just about everywhere, there were coyotes howling, and we ended up on a couple of mile horrific screamingly terrifying all out run all the way home.

Any time I see either of those movies I get the creepy crawlies... even 40+ years after the drive in event.

I love horror movies. However, I do not like slasher flicks. My mom and I used to watch Creature Feature and Friday Night Frights fairly regularly when I was a kid. The classic old stuff. Mummy flicks, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Werewolf stuff... etc......

Films like the Paranormal Activity series and The Grudge will raise a bit of the hair on the back of my neck these days. Any of the movies recounting the Warren cases will usually get a rise out of me (Amityville Horror, The Conjuring, etc....) and I also tend to like the movie version of Stephen King stories. I like to read the book then see the movie.
