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

Insidious

The Haunting in Connecticut

Saw and Saw 2

Scream

Psycho (both versions)

The Mothman Prophecies

The Skeleton Key

Thir13een Ghosts

Rosemary's Baby

I Saw The Devil - Horrifying Korean thriller. If the ghost/monster horror films don't freak you out try this one.

Nothing scares me...normally horror flicks make me angry or are pretty giggle-worthy. Some personal faves:

- Evil Dead trilogy with Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn as the winner

- Silence of the Lambs: classic movie that doesn't date.

- Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)

- Braindead aka Dead Alive ('I kick ass for the Lord!')

- I Spit on Your Grave (both original and remake)

- Hellraiser

- Romero's Dead trilogy ('Day of the Dead' is the best imo)

- The Wicker Man

- Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl

- Candyman

-And many, many more

So, whats the best horror movies? Please note, it's hard to spook me.

John Carpenter's "The Thing" was one of the rare movies to give me chills. So I guess you can use that as an example?

A couple that I just love :

1. Stanley Kubricks "the Shining" - possibly one of the scariest ghost story movies I have ever seen.

2. The original "Dawn of the Dead" - IMHO the standard by which all other zombie movies are judged

3. "Paranormal Activity" - the sequels have blunted it a bit, but that first one is still an effective low-budget movie.

4. "Jaws" - you can watch it 10 times and still feel the suspense it generates

5. "the Thing" - not only claustrophobic in it's horror but also a watershed moment for practical SFX.
