Which horror movie was the most frightening to you? Which monster or killer?

I think Psycho was the most frightening. Many people would not get into the shower after they saw that movie. The suspense was unbearable.

Night of the Living Dead, although in black and white, was a close second for sheer horror. The zombies had disgusting appetites!

But artistically, The Shining was great, book and movie. Jack Nicolson is an amazing actor. :) It's a movie I can't turn off. :)

What about you?

The shining is awsome, I love pretty much ALL stephen king films.

The main scary films I cant get enough of is the Alien films. I have the boxset and its getting worn out rofl.
No matter how much I see them, I know whats gonna happen but it still grooses me out. When the aliens moved the Aliens (2nd film) it still makes me jump a mile.
I think sci fi films scare me more than someone running around with a chainsaw while ur in the shower ;)

Misery was one of Stephen King's best! Vary disturbing, as you said. I couldn't wait for the climax of that book and movie! (Artistically, The Stand was his very best book, I believe, classic good against evil.)

Stephen King's "It" scared me so bad as a kid! I haven't seen it lately so I don't know.

I just saw the new "Amityville Horror" and it scared me so bad. I remember seeing the old one years back and didn't think it was all that scary...but this one had me buried in my seat. There was a little piece at the end they just stuck on that I thought they could have left off (a bit cheesey) but overall very freaky.

The movie that's scared me the most was Blair Witch Project. Scared the crap outta me until I found out it wasn't real :roll: Other than that, The Shining scared me, Constantine freaked me out and Hide & Seek creeped me out

American Wherewolf In London scared the heck out of me when I was little. I wasn't allowed to watch it but I peeked in on it one night. Its so scary, I couldn't sit down and watch it until I was 21 or 22

28 Days Later, but mostly because I was reading Richard Preston's The Hot Zone around the time I saw that movie. If you ever want to learn some scary stuff about Ebola and how close an outbreak was in the US, pick that book up. It's alll true. THAT is why 28 Days Later scared the p** out of me. :)

Oh and I still haven't finished Resident Evil. Same premise. *shudder*

I don't tend to watch horror, because my overactive imagination gives me nightmares without help, but I did see 'The Blair Witch Project'. I cried until my boyfriend (at the time) relented and stayed with me that night. I was terrified.

I enjoy thrillers, so long as they have a plot that engages me. M Night Shyamalan's movies 'Signs' and 'The Village' had me covering my eyes, and the recent 'War of the Worlds' made my blood run cold. Brilliantly suspenseful and chilling. None of these left me scared afterward, though, like 'Blair Witch' did. Eep.

I was dissappointed by The Blair Witch project..the company didn't get Steak and Shake to not run the commercial with the one girl in it before the movie was released, so I KNEW it was fake. She's been other commercials for them since.

The Changeling is probably the scariest I've seen. Two other favorites of mine are The Shining and 28 Days Later, though I don't think either is as scary as The Changeling.

I always knew it was fake... I didn't see it until it hit the dollar theatre some months after it came out. But it acutely played on my fears. Things that go bump in the night. The unseen. The eerie stillness and constant doubts over if it was just the wind. The sounds of the night and goodness knows what else that's out there. Yikes.

me too!!
I went to see it by myself and I thought it was totally lame. And then at the end, I was like "that's it? this sucks!!" Some people in the audience actually booed (bood? geez how do you spell that?) when it was over.
But that was after it had been out a month and I think, at least for me, you hear so much hype about it and the expectations are higher.

I didn't like the Blair Witch Project either. BIG disappointment!

I loved the book "Pet Cemetary" (or did King spell it Semetary?), but I was disappointed by the movie, mostly because it's really difficult to make a '2 year old cutie pie growling (with his hands like claws) look anything but silly. :wink:
