Yes, I'm a movie nut and yes, I'm starting ANOTHER movie topic. This time I want to know: What movie scared you (badly).

I'm another one that does not get scared by movies. Horror is my absolute fav genre and every time I put one on I'm desperately hoping it will scare the pants off me, but they almost never do. Probably because I've seen too many of them.

I have weird tastes in horror too - I watch a ton of 70's Italian horror movies. I'm pretty sure Netflix thinks I'm insane.

But to the point, there are a few that scared me or at least creeped me out a bit.

Night of the Living Dead(1968) - The beginning of the movie where they're in the cemetery and the zombie is chasing them. The whole "They're coming for you Barbara" thing creeped me out when I was a kid and it still does.

Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) - My favorite Dario Argento movie, fairly unsettling.

Dementia 13 - A movie no one in the whole world seems to have seen but me, but it is the only movie that has made me turn off the lights quick and run up the stairs and hop into bed. I almost hesitate to mention it for fear someone will watch it and then hate me forever cause it is technically a "bad movie". It just has one scene in particular that scares the hell out of me.

There have been some recent movies that haven't been too bad, I don't mind the M. Night movies - I don't really consider them horror though, more like suspense. The Ring was pretty decent on first watch. The Japanese horror movies are disturbing for sure, I can't go too much gorier than Audition.
I tend to like the little known movies better. Someone mentioned Session 9, that's a favorite of mine.

I saw Session 9 a couple of months ago.  I kinda saw what one of the twists would be (don't want to spoil it for others).  Didn't find the film scary as such, and wasn't too invested in most of it, but found Simon's voice very scary.  The last five minutes were definately chilling, even though I had an idea of what was coming early on.

*nods*   I enjoyed Session 9, but I don't remember it being particularly scary.  A little creepy, some tension here and there, but it didn't scare the pants off me.  Of course, I was watching it in broad daylight and distracted by the scenery.  Which is not a euphamism; I mean the actual scenery, specifically the Kirkbride building that was the centerpiece of the asylum.  So, anyway, I might not have been in the most scare-conducive frame of mind.

*mumbles*  It was pretty.  Stop looking at me like that.  Shut up...  Cheesy  (Hey, at least I'm not the one building apartments in it.  Or, er, what's left of it.)

Can't believe I forgot this one! Wolf Creek gave me the full on heebie jeebies! Man, I'm never going to the outback, no way no how. The bad guy in the movie has this line when he's about to shoot someone where he says "I'm a winnah" (not winner, gotta spell it how it sounds). How creepy is this? The guy who plays the bad guy was recently on tv for harrassing his tenants because he had changed his mind about the length of the lease. They played a tape of him threatening his tenants, and he actually used the line about being a "winnah" with the put on scary voice that he used in the movie.  Shocked I think he's been watching a bit too much of his own movie. He had also graffitied the place with things about him being a "winnah". Obviously when it went to court he has had to honour the lease, and his former friends, still tenants now have a restraining order against him. Ye gods!

Maybe I didn't forget it. It might have just gotten scarier since I saw the thing about him and his tenants, and decided I had better watch it again. I'm not sure now. I don't remember thinking it was all that scary the first time I watched it, but I sure do now!

The ones that other people think are "lame" and "not scary at all" because they don't actually show what happens scare me the most. Blair Witch scared the crap out of me because you didn't get to see what was out there and what happened to them. Also, Mothman Prophecies. I NEED to see what's happening not to be freaked out. My imagination frightens me.

Exactly!  And that's what directors don't seem to get - if I can't see it, I imagine it as what scares ME.  Not what scares the filmmakers.  That's why Blair Witch scared me.  Just exactly WTF IS that that's out there??

The same reason the movie that scared me more than any other, ever, was the old b&w film, "The Haunting."  I actually slept with the lights on for two weeks, the only time I've ever done that.

Honorable mentions go to...Jaws (when the head pops out of the underwater boat), Aliens, (when the captain guy -Dallas, was it?- buys it because you think he's going to be the hero so it's unexpected), Blair Witch of course and Kalifornia.  Kalifornia scared me silly.  It's not even a horror movie, but I still get dry mouth thinking about it.

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

Now I wanna see The Village.

I liked that movie a lot, though not because it was scary.  I can't tell ya why I liked it without giving too much away, though.  I had a big ol' crush on Joaquin Phoenix for a while after I saw it.

Oh man, I guess I have to make an update to what I said earlier.  Just saw The Exorcist for the first time... yiii!  Creeptacular! 

I think the scariest part was when she spider-walked down the stairs backwards, dripping all that blood...  Shocked

You just reminded me of something else.  Was in the second Exorcist when the little old lady skitters across the ceiling like a spider?  Just thinking about that gives me the serious heebie jeebies.

That is true, but if I know my Evil Dead as well as I should do then I'm pretty sure that the only person around Bruce who is safe in the event of a deadite uprising is.... Bruce. Everyone else seems to die or get posessed. Unless they're shoppers at S-Mart of course. That's because they think smart you see Wink

The Evil Dead, I have memories of that.  Closing my eyes and having the sound effects make me actually gag.  Seriously.  The sounds made me gag.  When I stopped retching, I fled the room.
