A Japanese movie called Audition.

Faces of Death, it doesn’t even have a plot, it’s just scene after scene of various forms of people/animals dying. It was gruesome. I can’t believe anyone ever thought it was a good idea to put it on film.

Not so much scary as just plain old disturbing: Battle Royale.

Those Japanese producers sure know their scary.

Scary movies rarely frighten me, but, I was fairly on edge when I watched “Hide and Seek”... Hahah.
For the longest time, I refused to watch horror flicks because they scared me half to death, so my knowledge of the genre doesn’t span deep.. but, I haven’t seen one that scares me yet.

OH! And come to think of it, “Boys Don’t Cry.”
It’s not a horror film.. but, that movie disturbed me like no other.

Aliens – the second one

@Les I remember that movie! Whoever decided on that plot has some serious mental health issues.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities
It was originally a book. I think that’s even more disturbing.

Blair Witch Project, before we knew it was fake. Holy crap, I was terrified when I saw it in theaters.

When I was a little girl my mom had left and I wasn’t sure where she was. I was home alone. I don’t remember how old I was, probably 6 or 7. (don’t get judgmental only mom, it was a different world 40 years ago.)
A movie came on TV and I didn’t get past the intro music and the title. it was called, “Picture Your Mommy Dead.”
I went out on the front porch and started screaming my head off for my mom! My mom happened to be visiting a friend 2 blocks up the street and actually heard me screaming! She was so embarrassed! How could she get mad at me though when I told her that I was scared because someone had asked me to picture her dead?
About the same time The Birds was on TV and that put me into screaming fits as well.

I don’t watch scary movies. Life is already scary enough.

The Haunting. The original one, not the crap remake (which I have to admit I still love because, hello, Liam Neeson is good to look at).

Jeruba's avatar

Nothing I ever saw scared me more than Hitchcock’s Psycho, unless maybe it was The Birds. Way back when, I saw it alone on late-night TV on a very small screen and sat petrified right through the commercial breaks.

@Likeradar, didn’t we know while we were watching it that it had to be fake? It was scary anyway, though . . .

Likeradar's avatar

@Jeruba somehow my friend and I didn’t know it was fake… we were teenagers and fell for the hype hook, line, and sinker. And we were terrified.

Gremlins. Really. Still have nightmares about that gremlin in the microwave oven.

I watched Scream 2 in theater, and it creeped me out. I kept looking over my shoulder. O-o

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@Jack79 What? Seriously? That movie made me laugh like crazy. Now i have to go rent and watch it.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities . . .Greatest Christmas tragedy story of all time! Thank you Pheobe.

Ice Castles freaked me the fuck out.

The scariest movie I ever saw, when I was growing up, was The Exorcist. After that, it was probably the original Amityville Horror.

Bri_L's avatar

@Bluefreedom – would the Exocist hold up today? Knowing what it is about?

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Bri_L. I heard that the director’s cut of the movie, the one where the contortionist does the spider walk down the stairs, was even creepier than the first version. My wife said that after she saw the movie the second time, she found it more humorous than anything else.

I also heard, although I don’t know if it is true or not, that the movie is loosely based on true events but the possession involved a boy and not a girl. I’m not sure how I’d feel if I saw it again but I don’t really have any inclination to do so. It still creeps me out after all these years.

MacBean's avatar

@Bluefreedom: The crabwalk down the stairs is one of the freakiest things I’ve ever seen. It’s effing awesome.

Jack_Haas's avatar

To me nothing comes close to the original Halloween movies. The first 2.

Aethelwine's avatar

Exorcist 3 was one of the scariest movies for me. I searched for a video of the part that creeps me out but I couldn’t find it. Here’s a picture.

Alien when I was 18.

Bri_L's avatar

@mattbrowne – Aliens for me. I saw it first. The I went to rent Alien and was disappointed because it relies so much on you not knowing about the creature.

Bri_L's avatar

@ all Exorcist Fans: a online design magazine posted this desktop picture

“The Astronaut’s Wife.” I returned it that night, even though it was a 40 minute drive, because I DID NOT want the DVD in my house overnight. Who knows what could leak out of that case?

mattbrowne's avatar

@Bri_L – I understand. It only makes sense to watch Alien, and then Aliens. Not the other way round. And it should be in a movie theater with a huge screen. The collective gasps were incredible.

Bri_L's avatar

@mattbrowne – I wish I would have known that. I Thought I was watching the original. I blame you. :-)
