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.

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.

    • I like it plenty, they've always had this kind of gloomy side to some of their songs, and they do that really well.
    • I'm becoming the biggest fan of this band. I also like how they chose non-obvious covers. It shows they have a sense of history and must be genre fans like us.
    • I dig that new tune. Nice. 
    • New song is okay but I don't like their metal sound. Everything is too loud and hurts when you turn the volume up a little. Samples on Itunes of the rest of the album sound okay, too. Some moments that are worse than I ever imagined Wig Wam to be (The american dream chorus absolutely doesn't fit and only contains 3 notes and god by your side would be okay if Åge sang it, sailor and the desert sun screams anything but Wig Wam), some moments are quite cool (Forevermore is very different, uppercut shazam is hard hitting and a typical Wig wam anthem). In the end it's too much Trond Holter for me. He's writing good riffs but he can't be quiet for a second. It's just missing the effortlessness and the good vibe in my opinion.  
    • 'The Big Easy' out March 17th.   Press release: Already the first lines of the new John Diva song "Back In The Days" convey what feeling the band stands for. Spandex pants, youthful recklessness, party mood and full batteries in the Walkman: John Diva & The Rockets Of Love bring the carefree moments of the 80s into the present and make them sound like the new hot shit. And can't we all use a little carefree? John Diva & The Rockets Of Love stand for fat parties, passionate stage shows stage shows, but also for liberal messages in their lyrics. Bullshit? No way. So the five musicians give the genre-usual sexism in their lyrics a clear rebuff, for example in songs like "Boys Don't Play With Dolls". "With us, everyone is welcome and appreciated," frontman John Diva makes clear. Good thing. Because I think we can all use a little carefree attitude. TRACKLIST 1. California Rhapsody 2. The Big Easy 3. God Made Radio 4. Runaway Train 5. Thunder 6. Believe 7. Back In The Days 8. Hit And Run 9. Boys Don’t Play With Dolls 10. The Limit Is The Sky 11. Capri Style 12. Wild At Heart    
    • New song 'ln For The Count' (Balance cover)   Tracklisting: 1. In For the Count (Balance cover) 2. Dancin' in the Ruins (Blue Öyster Cult cover) 3. In My Dreams (REO Speedwagon cover) 4. Subdivisions (Rush cover) LINE-UP: Alex Falk - vocals Oscar Bromvall - guitars Rickard Gramfors - bass Freddie Allen - drums      
    • From Frontiers: Norwegian rock n' roll warriors Wig Wam have announced they will release their new studio album, "Out Of The Dark" on February 10, 2023. Coming on the heels of renewed, enthusiastic interest in the band thanks to their classic track 'Do Ya Wanna Taste It' being used as the theme song for HBO's popular Peacemaker television series, "Out Of The Dark" sees an already extremely talented band feeling truly reinvigorated and inspired.  Wig Wam, vocalist Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen), guitarist Teeny (Trond Holter), bassist Flash (Bernt Jansen), and drummer Sporty (Øystein Andersen), formed in Halden, Norway in 2001 and have been mixing '80s inspired glam metal with classic hard rock, with entertaining lyrics and over-the-top imagery thrown in, to create a good old fashioned rock n' roll vibe for over two decades. In 2005, the year after the release of their debut album (first titled 667.. The Neighbour of the Beast and later changed to Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller), the band had their first international breakthrough when they represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest, placing ninth with the song "In My Dreams". The band would go on to release three more studio albums, Wig Wamania (2006), Non Stop Rock 'N Roll (2010), and Wall Street (2012) before splitting up in 2014.  The band would reunite in 2019 and work on a new album, Never Say Die that was released in early 2021. In 2022, the band had a stroke of good fortune when film/television director James Gunn selected their 2010 song "Do Ya Wanna Taste It" (from the album Non Stop Rock 'N Roll) as the opening theme song for the HBO Max show Peacemaker starring John Cena. The show, based on a DC Comics character, showcased the band to a whole new audience who had been previously unaware of them and has seen the band taking on renewed interest and booking more and more live dates around the world.  With new album "Out In The Dark" in tow, Wig Wam is ready to show even more rock 'n roll fans around the globe their entertaining take on hard rock! Tracklisting: 1. Out Of The Dark 2. High And Dry 3. Forevermore 4. Bad Luck Chuck 5. Uppercut Shazam 6. Ghosting You 7. The Purpose 8. The American Dream 9. 79 10. God By Your Side 11. Sailor And The Desert Sun Line-Up: Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen) - vocals Teeny (Trond Holter) - guitars Flash (Bernt Jansen) - bass Sporty (Øystein Andersen) - drums
