The Woman in Black....the old version....scared the pants off me when I was little....

saw it again a few years ago, expecting to be well beyond desensitised to that sort of thing  by now......scared the pants off me again :cry:



There's one bit in particular that gets me everytime....goosebumps just thinking about it.....

I rarely talk about such things but I once shoveled 18 tons of material in 11 min-
utes. It was under ideal conditions which allowed use of the legs and gravity
but I know no one who could have matched it and I do know work

There's a new movie called "Lovely Molly", which is a demonic possession story from one of the creative talents behind "The Blair Witch Project". The first half of the movie is scarier than the second half, and it's dark, disturbing stuff, which uses its creative sound design to great, creepy effect. There's a scene about 40-45 minutes involving the main character in her bedroom and something coming up the stairs which is one of the scariest moments I've witnessed in 30 + plus years of cinema-going.

I'm not really sure of which films have scared me, but a couple i did find enjoyable to watch were 'Martyrs' and 'Dread'. Although 'Martyrs' started off well enough, it did get a bit silly, but still good enough to watch.

There is one movie that I have watched multiple times and still sends chills down my spine : "Stanley Kubricks The Shining"... it's a brilliantly directed and s*spam filter*.

More recent movies that are actually scary - it might have become a mass-market thing but the first "Paranormal Activity" works as a pretty decent movie for scares. Beyond that I am drawing a blank. Don't get me wrong - there have been several really well done horror movies in recent years ("May", "Cabin in the woods", "Scream" to name three random ones that come to mind) but they aren't actually scary - just well done.

I love Cabin in the Woods that movie is perfect in my eyes, It has just enough gore and scary moments in it...Its also extremely funny

Plus, that movie is the smartest breakdown of horror movie cliches since "Scream"... And, let's face it, it was nice to see so many Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse alumni in one spot.

It occurs to me... I have yet to hit a Joss Whedon project I really dislike. I thought "Dollhouse" was that at first but then episode 6 rolled around and it became something other than what it's early episodes promised and was really good. Here's hoping Whedon can keep going for "Avengers 2"!

And I have to explain - I divide the type of scares a movie can bring. There are the jump scares (And "Cabin in the woods" had those) but I don't really consider that scary - just surprising. It takes more than that to be "Scary" IMHO - a movie has to leave one afraid to turn out the lights at night after seeing it to qualify. That's why I can't call the "Friday the 13th" or movies like that "Scary" no mater how much I enjoy watching them...

Not sure really, but zombie and other suitable apocalyptic movies are probably quite good. Strip away the zombies/rage-infected numpties/triffids/epidemic/aliens/whatever and you have quite a scary realisation of what can happen to the human race and our cosy existence if society was to ever break down. It's dangerously close moreso than ever before in this current economic climate. Electricity, heating, sanitation, communication, travel, food; everything grinding to a halt, and the human race left to revert back to what we nowadays mock as "primitive" living, but soon realise that farming, self defence, foraging, tool, clothing and weapon crafting, they're all skills that we've lost! Being shunted into a dark age from an age of relative comfort for the Western World... Would you survive? Would I?

To be hoenst it was the Day of the Triffids book that freaked me out more than anything, there's a line about having to learn how to farm somewhere, but not knowing how to plough, or even MAKE a plough; that one line hit me like a brick wal!!

Nice post.

Day Of The Triffids is one of the most fantastic sci-fi horror apocalyptic stories in print, and was a big influence on Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later. Share many similar themes including the start in the hospital and the abrupt end of civilization as we know it.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
