I recently watched "Grave Encounters". It's a found footage film that went straight to DVD/on demand that was actually decent. It had some cool concepts and good moments.

I caught this on cable yesterday because of this post alone, the concepts were great (in that the scenarios the paranormal investigatiors find themselves in is pretty interesting) before condescending into an amalgam of Blair Witch Project with other previous shaky cam films. Including the non stop screaming and the non stop f-bombs with alot of goofy unconvincing cgi. Had some good ideas going though but the execution was crap.

3/4 out of 10

"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).

suspiria to me is one of the greatest imo. along with the exorcist, although i dont really find to be scary at all, i still find it to be pretty cool. and if anyone is into something in the more cheesy yet psychological then i would highly recommend santa sangre

The Shining with Jack Nicholson... definitely the best. And I also like Insidious with creepy music by Tiny Tim (what's even more strange, I actually like that song). Yesterday I watched Shutter, which is Thai horror and it was damn pretty scary.

There's a low budget film from 2007 called MURDER PARTY.
It's actually very intelligent, comical, well paced, fun characters and a nicely horrific ending. It's among my favorites, can't recommend it enough.

My definition is a bit different than most peoples. Movies that "startle" me do not even count at all. Jason suddenly reaching out of the closet making you jump, pulling back the shower curtain in Pyscho....those are "startling"....2 seconds of adreneline.

Horror...is the ones that make you think....AFTER the movie. I consider "One Flew Over the cukoos Nest" in this category. Comedy? Yeah well...walking home from that one I thought of mankind as pretty sick as we all laughed about the plight of the pyschologically ill. Barrell of laughs.

Seven....not so much the scenes (starling)...but as the credits rolled by thinking...somewhere out there lurks the sick Mofo who WROTE this movie. THATS scary.....

but hey...im just an evolutionary dead-end of the equestrain line. feel free to disagree.

Whoever started this thread got it right.

John Carpenter's The Thing

Horror isn't how many bodies some weirdo tallies. It's about suspense and not knowing what's around the corner.

I will also add the original Fright Night.

My favorite scary movies:

-Halloween Series

-Friday the 13th series

-A nightmare on Elm Street series

-The Thing(Original)

-The Thing(Remake)

-Resident Evil Series

-Night of the Living Dead Series(Original)

-Night of the Living Dead Series(Remakes)

If your trying to scare yourself:

-Salem's Lot(Original)(The only "Horror" movie to scare me)

-Poltergeist series(Came close to scaring me)

-The Exorcist Series(The original had it's moments, but with each sequel the series got lamer and lamer)  

Honorary Mention:

-E.T. The Extraterrestrial(The exception to Salem's Lot, not a horror movie but scared the crap out of me as a child)

Friendly Tips:

-As a horror movie appreciator i learned that the older the movie, the scarier the movie

-When it comes to horror CGI sucks

I love the horror genre.

I get startled from time to time, but I'm rarely "scared."  In fact, I'd love to watch a movie that genuinely terrifies me.  That being said, these movies aren't necessarily the "scariest" but are some of my favorites:

Halloween (the original)
The Ring and Ringu
The Eye (the original)
The Fourth Kind
The Haunting in Connecticut
Saw and Saw 2
Psycho (both versions)
The Mothman Prophecies
The Skeleton Key
Thir13een Ghosts
Rosemary's Baby
