Other movies I remember watching....alone.....late at night....by myself....A couple of the Witchboard and House movies. Then, if my being alone wasn't bad enough, right after the movies were over, I flipped off the lights and tried to go to sleep.  Gods, talk about creeped out for a while!

Oh, and the apartment where I was living at the time?  An old house that had been converted, complete with creaks and groans and pops and snaps!  Shocked

I also remember watching Blair Witch with my then boyfriend.....late at night.....the lights off.....I made him turn it off about half way through so I could go smoke a cigarette and get my brain wrapped back around itself that "it's only a movie. You'll be fine!"

Heh. You know the part where he is standing in the corner with the beanie on his head and he's wearing a flannelette (sp?) shirt? One of my friends has a very naughty boyfriend who got both her and another of our friends late at night a couple of nights after they watched the movie. He turned off the lights and stood in the corner with his shirt and beanie, and they walked in the front door (on seperate occassions) and both of them just about had a heart attack. Quickly followed by attempts to maim him because "that was so not funny!" according to them. We all laughed our asses off about it though. Definately funny if it's not you walking in the front door.

Holy crap!  Shocked I can well imagine the attempted maiming/s that would have followed something like that.  I can also imagine MY reaction if I'd seen somebody do something like what your friend's b/f did. I think I'd have busted a gut laughing at the reaction/s. *nods*

This time I want to know: What movie scared you (badly).

As a lad - The Wizard of Oz.  Flying monkeys give nightmares.  Shocked

I liked Signs as a thriller.  Movies don't frighten me anymore, and so movies intended to frighten don't interest me.

Now I wanna see The Village.

Oh, the wizard of oz just reminded me of one of my big childhood fears! I loved The Labyrinth with David Bowie (still do Tongue), but those freakin red fraggle things scared me silly! I loved the movie so much that I watched it over and over, and even fast forwarding past those things gave me the heebie jeebies, and I'd be kind of looking at the tv sideways and through my fingers trying to guess when it was over. All my friends think I'm silly, but those creepy fraggle things were "disconnecting" bits of their bodies, and they were suggesting taking off her head or her ears and oh!....I'm too worked up. Yes, it still freaks me out, and it's the only scene from the movie I can't quote word for word cos i still can't bear it. I'm such a nut Cheesy

I loved The Village, and yet so many people said they thought it was crap. I honestly don't know why, I thought it was fantastic. I think that the reason all these people were saying it was crap is because before it came out there was sooo much hype about it - people were expecting some kind of mind blowing never before seen extra special fantabulous movie, and it couldn't live up to the hype. That doesn't make it a shit movie, it just means the hype was insane.

I thought Signs and The Village were excellent. Have you seen Lady in the Water? If not, and you do like The Village (or even if you don't) consider watching this one. It's an M. Night Shyamalan movie also, and soon to be added to my collection next to the other two mentioned.

Side note: I'm using the word/s *love* and *loved* far too much. I need to go find a new word to replace these two variations. I'm starting to annoy myself with my own repetativeness Roll Eyes You know you're being a pain when you start to bug yourself. Seriously though, I watch so many movies that the majority of them I just thing eh, it was ok, but all the ones that I think are *special* seem to keep popping up in this thread. Does that mean that I have good taste, or that we all have collective bad taste? (note that I didn't stay serious for too long)

Sorry for the extra long post, as I said, movies just do it for me Grin

Lady in the water is an interesting movie.  It's like the other shalahan sp? movies, with an interesting concept and good execution. Quite good actually.  GOod thing it didn't have the hype of the village.  It couldn't live up to it either.

Mmm. I had heard nothing about it - literally. I only picked it up because I watch so many movies that I had watched nearly everything on the new release stand. After I picked it up I noticed that it was Shyamalan, and that sealed the deal. I'm glad there was no hype, because I expected nothing. I agree, the concept was really interesting, and the execution fabulous. I ended up really *invested* in the characters, and really caring what happened to them. I like a movie that does that. Takes you beyond the "just being curious" to actually giving a shit.

I loved the Village as well.  (It wasn't particularly scary, though.)  I figured out the "big secret" about a third of the way in and spent the rest of the movie wishing I could live there...

M. Night Shyamalan is great.  I've loved every one of his movies that I've seen.  (Still haven't caught The Lady in the Water or Unbreakable.)

Me too. I didn't know that unbreakable was a Shyamalan movie til I just read it. I'm going to go google Shyamalan and see if I'm missing out on more.

I don't recall ever being scared by films about the "supernatural". Its the Psyco killer movies that get me.

I would have to agree with others that "Seven" was the scariest movie I have ever seen. The scene in the basement of the night club flashes into my mind still. In fact it is because of that movie that I refuse to watch that sort of subject matter anymore. I just can't take it  Tongue

About 16 years ago my room mate had a friend who was a police officer. He gave us a tape called "faces of death" and another one that had some "snuff" footage on it. I don't know if it was real, I doubt it was but those movies haunt me to this day. 

I allow myself to watch something "scary" at halloween. Hubby and I have kind of made a habit of watching a scary one for halloween and a sickeningly romantic one for Valentine's. Last year we watched Saw II. not very scary in my opinion. Not compared to the likes of  "Seven".

This time I want to know: What movie scared you (badly).

Disclaimer:  I almost never get actually *scared* at movies.  Startled, yes, but generally, if it's fiction, it won't keep me up at night.  Horror novels don't scare me either.  (What will have me sleeping with the light on are those "Mysteries of the Unknown"-type things:  if it's being presented as nonfiction, *that* will creep me out.  I am the world's wussiest folklorist, man.)

That said, The Ring scared the ever-loving crap out of me.  I was watching it with my then-girlfriend at her place; right after the characters and we see the full cursed videotape, the phone rings.  We hit the fricking *ceiling.*  It turned out to be my gf's sister, much bemused at our hyperventilating.  It took *ages* to get over that shock, and i didn't sleep easy until a week had passed.  I saw the Japanese version later, to try and dispel some of the lingering fear, and didn't find it as bad -- maybe the fact that it took place in Japan made it distant enough not to scare me (I was looking at all the pretty sets and scenery).

I think after the first time you see it and dont die, you get used to it as being just another scary movie.  When my friend saw it at university (Japanese version), he turned the tv around to face the wall.

...

You know what?  Something about the comment about pretty scenery triggered memory.  I think I have seen Ringu and had just forgotten about it.  I think I didn't find it as creepy through most of the movie, and closed my eyes for the critical scene.   Embarrassed  Obviously it didn't make as much of an impression as the English version did, although I suspect some of that is cultural differences, some of it was looking at pretty scenery, and some of it was not letting myself look at That Scene.  Wink

I was renting Lady in the Water when this thread started.  Grin  And I own Unbreakable.  I think it's his best work.

Unbreakable and the Sixth Sense are both on my to buy list, but until it was mentioned here I didn't know that Unbreakable was his. I should have, apparently I want to own everything of his that I have seen Smiley
