The scariest films to me are still Nightmare on Elm Streets. I think not being able to fall asleep and someone invading your dreams is the scariest thing for me.

I love all the classics like the shining, but i don't get particularly frightened in any horror films, but i do still love them and the genre in general.

One that i found quite good was 'dread'. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1331307/

Mainly for the fact that the thing that i find scariest of all is the human psyche, and how sadistic some people can be. I suggest you guys check it out, quite a good movie.

I haven't seen many scary movies. When I was maybe 8 I saw half of The Shining, I don't really remember much except the fact that I slept on the downstair couch for a week afterwards.

E.T. is the scarriest movie of all time.
Followed by Dawn of the Dead
then Signs

Oh my! You've seen Signs? I don't know anyone except the people I showed that have actually seen that movie, it's somewhere in my top 5 favorite movies! Good to know others have actually watched it!

I guess I'm not really easily affected by horror movies. I found the exorcist unsettling, but not really scary.

One of my favorite movies is "The Cell" with Jennifer Lopez. To me, it was disturbing, but not overly scary and I was really drawn in by the visually breathtaking scenes.

Hmm.. I'm going to have to agree with those that said the Descent 1 & 2. That scared the crap out of me.  :yes:

To be honest...
*Looks left*
*Looks right*

The Wizard of Oz scared the living day light out me when I was young. It just has so much creepy stuff in it. Monkeys with wings, a scarecrow being disembowled by crows, a lion. Ugh..

Another one of my Favourites is The Mist film adaptation of Stephen Kings novel.

It's not scary persay, but I love the whole concept of it. Sorta reminds me of Lovecraft's Mythos.

hello kitty super princess island adventure: the movie, it was so terrifying i wet myself watching the FBI copyright warning  :lol: . For me i havn't found the scariest movie, cause the only things that scare me are the things that are beyond logic and unfathomable, the things that shouldn't exist. But there are rarely any movies like that these days.

I love The Mist! The movie ending is much better than in the book, imo. I watch that one a lot when there isn't anything on TV.

Off the top of my head:

Mirrors - freaky, yet refreshing
Amityville Horror (original) - Sleep with lights on sort of movie for me

Honestly, some of the shows, like A Haunting, tend be scarier than most movies.

The ones not on the list here, that freaked me out were Cujo. I saw this at a very young age And Children of the corn.

And the Blair witch movie. The first one with all the hype when it first came out was awesome!I think that was Marketing at its best, how much profit they made from that :rolleyes:
