Posted: Apr 19, 2010 7:28 pm | Edited by: misslinda
 
This dont gotta' be no horrror film, just frightingly strange and scary.
I'll start the list ( to get these out of the way),with

Texas chainsaw C&M
The Exorcist


those are so standard, they're commonplace, like "Desperate Living", or "Rock-n-Roll Highschool".

I need opionions of fright!!!

Concur!

My favorites Possession.

How can I get my claws on the entire "Dark Shadows" saga?
I don't particularly like vampire hollywood, but Barnabus Collins has stricken a permanent intrest.
NOT THAT TIM BURTON/JOHNNY DEPP STUPID BULLSHIT!!!!FUCK THEM!!!!!!!

Thanks, I'll look it up.
Lovecraftian, and reality based seem to be best/scariest!

.....lovecraft stuff on film (alot like dee dee's solo stuff on audio) is usually a dissapiontment.

I still love it, I just wont tell my friends.....unless I'm drunk.

SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS

The Exorcist

That's the scariest, but not my favorite.

"Inside" is a French horror movie that I love. It's dubbed and you can get it from Netflix. Here's a trailer.

I don't know but the only movie that ever really scared me was Amityville
Posted: Apr 19, 2010 9:37 pm
 
I like the Hitchcock school of scares. But even then it's just creepy. I don't think my mind will allow me to forget that I'm just watching a movie enough to be really scared.

That said, if I'd seen Blair Witch Project and actually believed it was real and not a hyped up piece of garbage, I might have been mildly disturbed.
Posted: Apr 19, 2010 9:41 pm
 
Well, I'm not a big horror guy, so there's a lot of stuff I haven't seen that fanboys have, but my scariest are:

The Shining (I'm a big Kubrick fan, in case you haven't noticed)
The Exorcist
The Thing


The two movies I saw in the theaters that scared me the most at the time were the original Nightmare on Elm Street and the John Carpenter movie Prince of Darkness. But I've re-watched Prince of Darkness and it doesn't hold up when you're not 15 years old and hyped up on sugar and caffeine.

That's exactly how I am, though the first Friday the 13th scared me. I was only six at the time.

You sir, need to watch........House of the Devil!
Posted: Apr 19, 2010 10:11 pm
 
night of the hunter might have some of the most damned unsettling scenes i've seen...

also, the other; carnival of souls; phantasm...
Posted: Apr 19, 2010 11:46 pm
 
phantasm...

Yes!!!! They just released part II a few months ago on DVD. I find it to be classic, hence my Goner identity.

Also, I agree with Windy...Amityville is one of the scarier movies I've seen. I think the soundtrack is what really gets to me. Exorcist, Shining, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre are all good too.

I recently saw The Thing for the first time, and I wasn't scared but pretty tense through the whole thing.

The Sentinel, a 1977 film starring some unknown actress (cristina raines, i just looked it up) as a young woman who moves into an apartment building with some weird neighbors. it's got a bunch of recognizable actors--chris sarandon, burgess meredith, uh, uh, uh, oh yeah, beverly d'angelo's has an odd non-speaking role, and i think christopher walked might even show up. not the scariest movie i've ever seen, but one of my favorites, and it definitely has a few super-chilling moments. like, nightmare stuff, if you ask me. and at the end there's a bonus line-up of freaks!
Posted: Apr 19, 2010 11:55 pm
 
christopher walken, i mean. wrong past tense.

The original Black Christmas is a great, creepy slasher flick! For me, Texas Chainsaw Massacre will always be the scariest.
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 12:50 pm
 
I'm more of a suspense guy:

The Thing (remake)
Repulsion (Not much action until the end - just Catherine Deneuve going slowly crazy.)
Don't Look Now
The Last Wave (Richard Chamberlain defends a young Aborigine accused of murder using tribal magic. Great, neglected film.)
The Other (Another one that deserves more attention.)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (remake - when I saw the little dog with the guy's head I just about jumped out of my seat.)
Rosemary's Baby is still scary too

When I was a yute, Village of the Damned freaked me out the worst.

Last one that made me jump was the first time I saw 30 Days of Night. I was home alone and it was snowing, so I was super scared!
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 5:46 pm
 
"something wicked this way comes" had that fuckin creepy ass tarantulas under the bedsheets scene. fuckin hate spiders.
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 6:33 pm
 
Texas chainsaw C&M
The Exorcist

that about covers it.

i'm also going to give "jaws" a vote. the movie itself wasn't scary, but it made at least two generations of people worldwide afraid to go into the ocean. that's kinda sweet when you think about it.
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 7:10 pm
 
the movie is called Dont Look Now and being a horror movie lover i have to say that it is one of the best EVER!
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 10:16 pm
 
Don't Look Now is creepy.
Posted: Apr 20, 2010 11:06 pm
 
great movie. super creep.

sutherland is just weird.
Posted: Apr 21, 2010 7:46 am
 
Last night I screened on my idiot box Salem's Lot possibly one of the best made for TV movies adaptions ever. You can't fuck with Mr. Barlow or Striker, fiddle faddle.

Don't Look Now is creepy.

Arrgh! Hard to comment on without giving away the ending, but watching this movie from a very young age, I have to say, Nicholas Roeg was responsible for my very first prejudice with that fucked up ending. They give some time to this movie and it's ending in "Not Quite Hollywood" the documentary about 70's and 80's Australian/Ozploitation films.

I'm watching it right now. Carrie decided to go to Target instead of watch the end.
Posted: May 21, 2010 8:12 pm
 
The end is the best part of that film!
Posted: May 21, 2010 8:19 pm
 
I don't think Frank Darabont's film The Mist gets talked about enough

That guy should direct every Steven King novel written.

Here's a tip. The 2 disc collector's edition of The Mist has a cut of the film in black & white. It's much cooler and creepier.

I loved the end of that movie.

Hell, yes. That ending has balls. It's not even the same ending as the novela. I read an interview with King where he basically said he wished he had thought of it.
