What are the really scary movies?

Recommended Posts

As a kid, I loved horror films, probably through to around 16 years old, watched everything there was to be watched once videos became popular.

 

We all have fears of being scared, what would you genuinely recommend as being a scary film.

 

Films I`ve thought were a little creepy or nightmarish are.......

 

Jacob`s Ladder

Pyscho

Psycho II

The Changeling

Suspiria

 

 

Probably loads more.

 

But no scary films

Paranormal Activity - but it must be watched late at night/early in the morning with all lights off, a quiet room, on your own or with just one other person. If you do that it will scare you.

The last movie that truly creeped me out was "THE OTHERS" with Nicole Kidman.

My pal has just seen Paranormal Activity 2 and said it was better than the 1st (which was pretty darn good). She watches loads of horror but says this newie is one of the few that has made her JUMP!!! ARRGHH!

Always and forever...."The Exorcist" and the first "Alien". Both scared the crap out of me.

As a kid "Exorcist".

 

As a teenager "Candyman".

 

As an adult "Mothman Prophecies". Not really a horror movie but the fact that it was based on true events makes it even creepier.

 

Also "The Ring". I actually was counting the days down from 7 to zero. Not that I really thought anything was going to happen but damn that little girl was creepy as hell and it made me think about it after the fact which I guess is a sign of a good horror film.

Cool, I'll be interested to see the verdict as I've never seen that one. I love scary films, but sadly most horror films just make you jump a lot (which I think is different from being genuinely scary) or have lots of gore (which I find really boring). The only scary films that I can think of are:

 

Blair Witch Project (you love it or hate it, I thought it was bloody fantastic)

The Changeling (only seen the version with George C Scott, a seriously creepy film)

The Orphanage (great film, I think it was scary...)

I just don`t find films scary, I rarely jump and don`t like gore - lol

 

Blair Witch is great, creepy ending

The Changeling is excellent

The Orphanage was another great Spanish film

Definitely creepy, especially that ending where all the shouting happens when they find out...I won't give it away for those who haven't yet seen it. A very good film.

Paranormal Activity

 

Now that was a creepy film, especially in the right atmosphere, I went cold a couple of times.

I do jump, horror films make me jump quite often, I just don't think making people jump is particularly clever and it's not scary as such; even comedy films can make you jump! The truly clever horror films create a scary atmosphere without you just waiting for the next time you're going to jump.

 

Glad you like the three films, all brilliant imo.

 

Will definitely have to check out Paranormal Activity after your comments.

True horror won't have you jumping, because you'll be frozen in terror. I don't recall ever be terrified. I might just watch a few of those to test my boundaries.

The Descent

Pet Sematary

Dead Silence

 

Here's a trailer for 'Dead Silence' because it's not so popular than the other ones. I really enjoyed this movie, really scary imo.

Yeah I'm a little confused with the exact meaning of this thread. I guess no movies ever "scare" me either. But ones I have found genuinely creepy would be:

 

'The Ring' ; good call, Wes. This film is creepy as hell.

'Paranormal Activity'

'Blair Witch Project'

 

There are others, but they're fresh on the brain after seeing this thread. I jump at a lot of movies, but they usually annoy me. Just because someone jumps from something you didn't expect, or a quiet scene suddenly turns up the volume, doesn't mean it's scary. Sure it makes me jump, but stuff like that actually annoys me more than anything else.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
