Really looking forward to the remake of The Evil Dead. Hopefully it's as good as the trailer.
Mannnn, that new Evil Dead trailer looks so fckin good. I can't wait for that to come out.

The last really good horror film I seen was The Mist. POWERFUL ending.

I havent been scared by a horror film since I saw Salems Lot as a kid.

However, the odd good horror can still make me jump. I saw a film called Sinsiter the other day and that film is about as jumpy as they come.

Check it out.

exorcist movies scared the living crap out of me. Tried to watch the first exorcism movie when i was young but my parents stopped me before i got too far in it. Then not long after that i saw the exorcism of emily rose. Seriously screw exorcism movies. Havent seen one since.

Yeah strangers was really good as well as whatever that movie was called where they stay in a hotel and then get locked in it and all that

The only time ive been scared by a movie was at the cinema watching event horizon

mainly because id had a really strong dope cookie

otherwise the only times are the ones where you jump coz of the loud noise. didnt really know how to spell that sound

maybe 'djoom!'

Strangers. Fictional horror doesn't really get me at all because I can't imagine the situation ever happening to me. But seeing something like Strangers will **** with my head for days.

Good question. I think it is pretty hard for a movie to stir fear in me. I can be shocked no problem and I like that, it is fun to be startled I've always thought. But I don't experience fear from movies anymore, not in a long time.

Did see the Exorcist though when I was way too young. spooky... Also Poltergeist 3 made me very weary of mirrors for a bit.

I like the idea of watching horror movies and continue to watch many. However, I find it difficult to find good ones these days. As a kid I remember being scared/excited watching the first fright night complete with titty shots which was a big deal when I was 10. Haha. Exorcist made a friend of ours cry when we were 15 but it didnt do too much to me. Creepshow 2 was totally amazing to me as a kid, also. I always love the scene of the guy that got hit on the highway sayin "thanks for the ride lady!" while being badly mangled. Hahaha. Good memories. Somewhat recent good stuff...session 9 was creepy, i liked the first half of insidious, too. The Strangers was well done, too. And I wasn't scared but I didnt hate.the call like I expected to. Can't think of others right now, but I know there are more. I am interested in seeing The conjuring for sure.

Yes, horror movies can scare me. Horror is my favorite movie genre, even though almost all horror movies are pretty bad.

First one that ever really scared the crap out of me was A Nightmare on Elm Street in the movies when I was a kid.

I wonder why that movie worked so well in its ability to scare. I think it is because it was about dreams, and we have all had dreams that are truly frightening.

Even as I get older I find that I can still be scared, but it's not by special effects or blood or monsters, it's by the unknown.

A couple of movies that have worked very well in scaring the s*** out of me was Insidious, Devil and Frailty.

None of those movies was big budget or had any special effects that are memorable, but what they had was very clever plots and the element of fear came from the unknown factor in each movie.

Insidious was about a boy who astral travels when he sleeps and runs into a nasty spirit along the way. Devil is about three people trapped in an elevator, and one is not what they seem. There are no special effects in this movie, all of the fear generates from the dialogue and events and the possibility that what of there really is a devil and he really does stuff like this...

Frailty is also a personal favorite. This movie starred and was directed by Bill Paxton, a truly great actor, it had virtually no special effects, and it generated fear by showing killers, a man and his two boys, who were doing what they were doing because of the father being a religious zealot, but then at the end it becomes unclear if he was a zealot or if he was actually doing exactly what he said he was doing because it's real.

I think it boils down to two things. The first is that someone has to conceive of and write a smart plot and second has to keep in mind that it's not what we see that scares us, it's what we do not see, and it's not what we know that scares us, it's what we do not know.

I agree with you that the vast majority of scary movies are crap and do nothing to scare me. Me and my brother watched the exorcist when our parents were gone, all alone in a dark room with the light turned out and surround sound turned up when I was 13, waiting to be scared. But all I got was yawns and a one big "that's it?".

Over the years, most acclaimed mainstream horror movies down the road did the same. Poltergeist, The Ring, Texas Chainsaw etc., none of these scared me in the least. Some like The Shining actually made me laugh, and I'd heard so much about it before watching it.

That being said I did find SOME that really did send my heart suddenly jump into my mouth or creep me out.

IMO There are 3 types of scary movie. One is the jumpy "sudden scare" that jumps you with a loud noise and surprise, the kind you'll find at most haunted houses and such. The second is disturbing storylines or psychological thrillers that make you think "this could happen to me" and stay with you for a while. The third are the ones that gross and creep you out with "phobias", scaring you the same way for example a bunch of spiders crawling over you would.

I thought the original "I know what you did last summer" had some very good unexpected "jumpy" moments. You just need to be watching it with surround sound / dark room or in a theater etc. There was another one I saw called "They" by Wes Craven that was pretty good at the shock moments.

One of the more creepy will-stay-in-your-head-at-night ones ones was "In the Mouth of Madness". Very disturbing storyline that really got you involved with the fate of the characters.

For the phobia one, the best one I thought was the original Alien ... that whole alien egg laying in stomach thing was just creepy on a primal level.

Also to go beyond movies, I would highly recommend a game called Amnesia: Dark Descent. This was the only game to legit scare me, and I've played other acclaimed ones like Clive Barker's Undying and Resident Evil that again did nothing for me. It takes a while to build up, the early levels aren't that scary, but man if you have headphones turned up and lights dimmed for the later levels, I would be quite surprised if it didn't at least creep you out, if not full out send your heart thumping. Just so immersive.

Hmm that game must have slipped of my radar, as I've played most PC games over the past few years... I'm going to check it out. See how it compares to resi 2!
