Jaws, without a doubt. Anyone who has seen Jaws and swims in the ocean thinks of sharks. Any other scary movie doesn't inspire the same feelings at all times. I still swim in the ocean, and love it, but sharks are always on my mind.

Jaws is a classic, that music!! I can't step foot in the ocean without fears of crabs, jellyfish and stingrays, let alone sharks :w00t:

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

With Jaws I can still hear the screaming, and that was just in the cinema when head appeared from bottom of sunken boat, things didn't improve after that...

Well, to add to my list from earlier. Only last night I watched "The Woman in Black". I know critics and others seemed not to rate this highly, but fear is all in the mind of the veiwer. I thought this was as scary as anything I had seen before. Blood soaked slashers do not scare me for one moment, it is often that which is more low key that is more frightening. There is another film recently seen, French, called "Livid", very good until the last quarter of film which became slighty silly and, IMO, ruined the suspense.

The 'You're gonna need a bigger boat' scene scared the heck outta me, it's just so sudden and he backs away so realistically :D

The Orphanage (Spanish movie) and REC (also Spanish but has an American remake called Quarentine) were scary and good, but overall The Exorcist still terrifies me and probably always will do.
Good call all around.  I like what is coming out of Spain.

"The Hills Have Eyes" disturbed me some, enough that I wouldn't watch it again. "Creepshow" and "Twilight Zone, The Movie" from the 80's were a couple of favorites of mine as a kid. "Trick or Treat" is pretty cool. "The Walking Dead" series has my full attention nowadays...

I saw The Orphanage at the cinema, it was such a great immersive tale. There are a couple really jumpy moments, it's a very sad movie too, a good blend of emotions. It really annoyed and insulted me when I saw folks walking out cause it had subtitles!!! Idiots!

The Exorcist always scared me, but the real life experience of a friend made it worse so now I don't watch it anymore. Paranormal Activity is in that same category. Those movies don't seem quite so "fun" anymore.

REC is high on my list, though the american version (Quarantine) did nothing for me.

The Changeling with George C Scott is a good slow burning ghost story.

I can't leave out the original black and white Night of the Living Dead, because watching it alone in a dark empty house terrified me as a kid.

Of course 2016 is scary. It was made by the delusional for the delusional.

I so desperately need to get this film on DVD! I've only seen perhaps the last thrid perhaps which really annoys me. The concept just sounds to excellent, and perhaps a little Lovecraftian. A sort of From Beyond, or Bleknap Long's Hounds of Tindalos feel from what i gather.
I enjoy it A LOT, word to the wise though it does get pretty gory

Event Horizon... I love the movie, but it's quite a bit disturbing. Intriguing, but disturbing.
