Try these;

The grudge 1,2,3... japan made horror but really sick...
House of bones.. classic american lemonade but it is scary!
Grave encounters 1 ... second part sucks but first if you watch it alone and at night muh muh ^^
28 weeks later... Best opening ever, zombie -style well not really zombies, mroe like virus effected pps...
Cloverfield...  More like a scifi alien invader movie, new york is the place, great movie with great reality properties to it...

Anyways depends from what kind of scare you want!

Some movie's that scared the hell out of me, and in no particular order:

1 - Dario Argento's Demon's I & II.

Two cheesy movie's but I saw them when I was too young to understand what a "cheesy movie" was. Scared the hell out of me.



2 - The Return Of The Living Dead Part III.

Again, another corny movie, but saw it at an age I shouldn't have. Scared me.



3 - The Grudge.

There are many people that didn't really find this scary, however I did, hence why it's added here. Seriously, this is a great Horror movie for people who believe in curses and entitie's, knowing what they can do. Scared the hell out of me. Recommended.



4 - The Amityville Horror. [Remake]

I haven't seen the original, however I think this was a decent Horror movie. The "Catch 'em, kill 'em" is creepy and adds to the already eerie atmosphere of the mansion. Add to that, the scenes with the evil presence in the Indian burial grounds and haunted boat house/shed/whatever at the end of the yard.

Some really scary scenes in that movie.



5 - The Exorcist.

'Nuff said.



6 - The Exorcism Of Emily Rose.


Some scenes in this movie left me disturbed. Examples being the post-mortem photograph and the scene where Emily is completely paralayzed on the floor. Also the scene where she just starts randomly, calmly playing the piano as the exorcist/priest leaves.

Recommended movie.



7 - Dead Bird's.

I don't remember much from this movie. All I know is that it is scary and has a wonderful twist at the end. The movie has a wild west vibe to it. A group of cowboys [?] rob a bank and retreat, assumingly several miles away and into an old, abandoned house. From there on in, they begin to break down, one at a time, haunted and turn on each other for various reasons.

Recommended.


8 - REC.


Scary movie, the realism works well and theres a sense of terror and hopelessness throughout the whole film.

Recommended.



9 - IT.


'Nuff said.



10 - Paranormal Activity.


Now, you're probably thinking "PA, what the hell?" but denial aside, the first movie was scary. Watch it alone, at night, with the volumne way up. It only turned to trash when Hollywood started farting out sequels.



Thats all I can think of for now.

Agreed.

That is what I tried to explain when I mentioned The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Theres a scene where she's just sprawled out on the floor, paralyzed, looking straight forward. When her boyfriend approaches her, she lets out this God-awful howl that just makes you want to curl up into a ball and die.

There are similar joint-locking scenes in the movie's "The Last Exorcism" and "Devil Inside."

As well as the absolute majestic beast of storytelling, emotion and direction that is The Exorcist, Kubrick's The Shining is almost a polar opposite, minimal emotion (besides insanity lol), bleak, detached and downright bizarre direction and a story that has been sliced and inverted from its brilliant Stephen King source novel. It's such a mind rush and labyrinth, fantastic film and immensely creepy watch after watch after watch.

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

That's what makes it a great movie! It's a rare ability to be able to disgust but still be able to pull your interest along for the ride :D

Eraserhead is the scariest movie I've watched in a long time. If this movie doesn't scare you to death than there is something wrong with your senses.

"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...

Is that the one with a weird section called Don't Open the Box or something??

Funny thing about The Shining Stephen King did not like the movie at all, He thought Kubrick missed the crucial points that he conveyed in the book. Stephen King has stated that Kubrick didn't do justice to what King felt were the most important aspects of the book : The main character's struggle with alcoholism, the dissolution of the American family (or at least this one), and the malevolence of the hotel itself (rather than the people/ghosts in it.)

Some of this may be personal for King. Like the main character, King was a writer with a serious alcohol and cocaine problem who confessed suppressing "brutal urges" toward his daughter. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvsho... The book is about a good man turned bad by alcoholism; an alcoholism exploited by an unseen evil force.

The movie is about a jerk who just gets worse.

Yeah, this is definitely amongst the better of the "newer" horror movies.

I was almost chewing my fist up when Don (Robert Carlyle) was chased over the meadow down to the stream. He sees that his wife is ripped from the window, and it keeps pouring infected people after him, from all directions.

Robert Carlyle is awesome in that scene and you can almost taste and smell the fear, his facial expression says it all.
And also the sound-piece is awesome, one of the better hooror-movie soundtracks out there.
His finishing words as he escape down the river -"OhShit, ohshit, ohshit", seals the scene.

It's actually one of the most intense scenes I've seen in a horror movie. *phew*

My own choice would be Extro, from the 80's I think so weird its one scary ass movie, well it was at the time I've not watched it for oh 30yrs

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.
