I just watched The Descent last night - that is one good film! First horror movie Ive seen in ages that was actually scarey, and had some quite convincing characters.
(though it was blatently obvious the Northern Irish girl was gonna get it first )
So which movies scare you, and why?
I found quite a few of the recent wave of Asian horror flicks quite creepy
Eye 1 & 2
Not necessarily scary, but definitely creepy.
When I was a kid "Alien" and "Salems Lot" freaked me right out.
Audition, the first Ring, Cube(made me feel like crap after seeing it).
The last time I remembered actually being creeped out was when I saw Henry, Portrait Of A Serial Killer. Of course it was more psychologically scary because it was based on an actual killer, but it was disturbing. to top off the evening, the show was at a theater in downtown Detroit, it let out at 2:00am and we cut through an alley to get to the parking lot. That was bad enough, but when we got to the lot there was a drug deal going down right near my friends car and I'm talkin' white bags kind of drug deal. It was an interesting night.
Farenheit 911 didnt scare me at all. In fact it enraged me because how obvious the fucker twisted everything. I mean the fact that he was sued after making it by many of the people he interviewed just proves that he's full of shit.
Alien has to be the only movie to scare me.
SIGNS scared me.. especially the footage of the birthday party. I think my heart stopped.
28 days is pretty gnarly, atmosphere-wise.
using that footage of the B-day party was genius - scares the shit out of me everytime i see it too...anything thats has that Home-movie quality does the job...just makes it more real -Originally Posted by Interceptor
For the same reason, another vote for Henry, Portrait of a serial killer... espeically with the home-invasion scene...and the original texas chainsaw...
I heard Irreversable was extremely disturbing and caused a big scene at Cannes...
oh and the VHS tape in the Ring was even more disturbing that the movie itself

irreversible was pretty messed up. It has all the gore of other movies in one scene.
Some scenes from Jacob's Ladder.
Let's not forget the sick feeling Koroshiya Ichi left me, after watching it.
The Descent is about a group of women who go caving, and are picked off by 'something' hidden in the caves... ooh er... It was made by the guy who made 'Dog Soldiers', Neil Marshall I think.Originally Posted by jfwalls
Link >>> THE DESCENT
Dog Soldiers, I imported that film
Dog Soldiers is a cool little movie, well worth a watch if you haven't seen it.
the first alien film scared me when i was younger. the most disturbing was japanese films like the ring and the grudge.
i didnt think the descent was that bad but it gave my sister nightmares, and shes 22
Chakushin Ari (One Missed Call)
Ju-On & Ju-On:The grudge
Planning on seeing Kairo one of these days. Word is, that movie is friggin scary.
Salems Lot, Cujo, Jaws, The Shinning and The Grudge was pretty creepy as well.
Salems Lot is probably my all time favorite Horror flick. I recommend getting the extended version though. The condensed version cuts some really great scenes out.
I don't spellcheck...
Seven really scares me a little . Yeah, the Shinning is pretty ''scary'' at points, quite dark, but it wasn't horror scary.

the black cauldron. and yes, it's a disney film with a u certificate. it's just fundamentally scary. i can sit through all other films smiling. it's just this one that absolutely scares the craz out of me.

heard this one can be hard to stomach.
this one's supposed to be a classic (i've seen parts of the unrated) but extremely fucked up:
gorefest i think, but really good portrayal of slaughter:
supposed to have quite a jolly rape/mutilation scene:

Monica Belluci's outlandish nipples in that picture frighten me.
Wow, Audition scared people.. I thought it was gross, extremely disturbing, and twisted plot... for those who liked Audition should watch Visitor Q. Jacobs Ladder scared the willabees out of me...
Sammy- Ive seen Caligula.. My friends ex-girlfriend bought it for him for his birthday... Hamburger hill is one of my favorite war films ever.. Irreversible i heard was crazy... If you can watch a 7 minute hardcore anal rape scene then i hear its pretty good after that....
Evil disco- Ichi was awesome.. the best part of that flick I think was the end when the short dude in the jumpsuit comes out of that suit and you realize he's one diesel muther effer!! i thought that was hilarious... and the person face being sliced off and sliding down the wall was pretty cool too!!!
Theres this movie I saw called SESSION 9.. That movie freaked me out a bit... Probably the most since the Blair Witch before the Big production houses got a hold of it...
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
I've seen Caligula too, it's pretty bizarre. It's a 2.5 hour long historical epic with random violence, porn and silly dancing.
Heard bad things about Irreversible, decided not to watch it.
Ive seen part of Irreversible, and it is incredibly disturbing, My flatmates were watching it last year and I walked in during the rape scene (which is horrific to begin with, then ends incredibly violently) 'WTF are you guys watching!?' lol
Dont think I could endure watching that movie again.
On a brighter note, I just watched Old Boy. It was quite engrossing to begin with, then turned into a bit of a mind bender - but in a good way if you buy into the twist at the end. Anyone else seen it?
Oh and 'IT' scared me alot when I was younger - the clown, not the daft spider like thing at the end way ruin a perfectly good monster.
I absolutely loved "Old Boy", thought it was easily one of the best films I've seen this year.
