What is the scariest movie?

631 posts in this topic

The Changeling with George C. Scott. 1980 or 1981

ZOMG I watched that movie years ago...I can barely remember it but the one scene that freaked me out so bad was this part where a guy and a girl are taking a bubblebath together, and for some reason the crazy b**** submerges her head under the water, and then she just pops back up violently screaming at the top of her lungs, made me jump thru the ceiling! Seriously what the hell was even the point of that...aside from scaring the **** out of me...

the fourth kind............defiantly one of the scariest I've watched, only because it is based on a true story and could totally be real. i would advise everyone that can to for sure check it out, and tell me what you think about it!

Its not a true story its based on some disappearances that happened there. There was no sign they were extraterrestrial. The production company even went as far as to make fake websites for mila jovevich's character.

Good movie though.

The Entity (1982) Supposedly based partially on a true story, a woman is tormented and sexually molested by an invisible demon!

When my mother was a teenager back in the Seventies she went to the cinema to see The Exorcist.

Apparently many of the people in the cinema were so shocked and terrified by what they saw in the movie that many of them, mainly females, actually collapsed and had to be taken outside by the St John Ambulance to ambulances outside which were actually put on standby. I think each cinema in Britain had to have three ambulances waiting outside when The Exorcist was released.

The movie actually ended up being banned in Britain for many years. It wasn't released on video in Britain until 1999 and it wasn't shown on British television until 2001, almost 30 years after its release.

I watched a British horror movie called The Torment (2009) the other night and that's quite creepy.

A young couple are sat on their sofa in their London home just after midnight when they hear a knock on their door. This causes them to feel a little nervous as they wondering who it could be at that time of night.

The man carefully opens the front door and finds that it's just his best friend David. His friend comes in and explains that his girlfiriend has dumped him for another man. So his friend allows him to stay at his house.

But it turns out that David also has another problem. He is also being plagued by terrifying demonic entities - and he has brought these demonic entities with him to his friends' home.

But are there REALLY demonic entities - or is something else going on?

If you liked The Torment AKA The Possession of David O'Reilly, you should check out Absentia

Absentia is def a good movie. the rest that i have read throughout this thread r not even remotely scary and would more suit to scare a child rather than an adult. So the real question is what exactly scares us adults or leaves a shock value that equals to being scared. Cuz nothing really ever scares the **** out of you besides normal things like a near death experience ie a near wreck an eighteen wheeler almost knocking you off the side of the road while you r taking a walk or something at the corner of your eye that makes you think its someone right behind you when its really a lock of hair but you jump anyways, lol. That feeling of the rush is always good.

I still get spooked out by the shiz that creeped me as a child, it's somehow even worse now I appreciate the complex reasons that moved me as a kid, you don't change all that much as you grow imo, a once thriving community slowly burning and smoking from below and now more or less empty and forgotten will always seem pretty eerie to me no matter how many years expand amongst the cracks!

The paranormal activity movies creep me out and leave me quite paranoid. Paranormal Entity was good as far as getting jumps, and the use of a 'local legend' sort of background was done very well. Ju-On is very scary; the Japanese know what they're doing. Apartment 143, Paranormal Activity style, but a little more overt; quite a fun watch. VHS...the overplot was stupid, but each individual subplot was pretty good, definitely creepy, especially the attic scene, and surrounding story. While it wasn't the greatest, the Devil Inside kept my attention. The Ward, while cheesy, was also good. It kept me guessing for quite a while. Lovely Molly was weird. Poltergeist was my first scary movie and freaked me out for weeks after seeing it. The Descent was also good, I haven't seen the sequels yet, though. Sublime was amazing. The most unexpected one, though, was Grave Encounters; definitely cheesy, but quality scares. This thread is great. It's giving me so many great movie ideas!

Don't watch the second descent, it's godAWFUL!! The first was one of the best horrors made in the last twenty years, not exactly a difficult achievement but it was an interesting movie, full of claustrophobia and nail biting situations and truly ruthless creatures. The psychological layer is effective and you'll never look at a cave the same way again!

I finally came across a copy of The Descent a few months ago and I was very excited to watch it after all of the great reviews I read and heard. However, I was very disappointed. I liked the premise at first, but the monsters just made it too "over the top" for me to like it. To each his/her own, of course.

The Descent is great until the creatures become fully formed and understood in the viewers mind, it is great until that moment, they are over used and it becomes your basic survival horror concept. Still a great effort and a solid 7 out of 10 in my opinion.

Poltergeist has a few disconcerting moments but is mostly comprised of fairground scares, a good movie with brilliant effects however. The film is innovative and compelling but it just doesn't scare me. Probably because I am extremely interested in the content and somewhat desensitized :su

I think the scary thing about it is that there in an enclosed space and then theres the creatures in there and there starting to not trust eachother. It gets intense. By the way its NOTHING like the book.
