I have not seen a really good "scary" movie since i was a child and alot of things scared me.

I saw 13 ghosts, and it had alot of startling moments, which i thought was cool, but i wouldn't call it scary perse.

event horizon is, without a doubt, one of the worst films i've ever seen...

it was comical towards the end

event horizon is very high up the list. you should perhaps try "ring" that japanese horror movie. i haven't see it yet, but the few snippets i've seen are pretty scary.

I laughed through The Others, but it scared my girlfriend shitless. (Come to think of it, this played a large role in why I was laughing.)

The Blair Witch Project (the first one) was pretty frightening, back when it first came out, and nobody really had any clue what was going on. Not the scariest movie I've ever seen, but it was pretty fucking creepy.

if you're a guy, In The Realm of the Senses will scare you shitless. However it's cleverly disguised as a porn flick the entire way through... till the scary part

likewise

to actually answer the question, i haven't been remotely scared during a film since i was a little kid. back then, the Omen series did it for me.

having said that, i do think that The Shining creates the best atmosphere/tension of any horror movie i've seen. also my fave kubrick film.

Bizarrely, my scariest movie experience was whilst watching Fight Club... Not because it was a scary film, but because I was really really badly intoxicated and there's this bit where the Ed Norton character has these confused memories about having sex with Marla: all blurring weird pictures with "aaaaaaOOOOOOOO" noises and stuff. It completely freaked me out for no particular reason.

Another useless story brought to you by TDM enterprises.

poltergeist scared me when I was a kid. it's still kind of freaky imo. Flatliners is a subtly eery movie, also one of my favorites. Ghost is obviously not a scary movie overall, but does anyone else remember that dream sequence where Demi wakes up next to that statue of an angel? that got to me.

event horizon started strong, but holy shit, did they run out of funding or something, cause it got pretty silly there towards the end. "mamma bear?" arrgh, die.

Without a doubt, the scariest movies I've seen are the 'Ring' films (especially the first one), which were incredibly terrifying. The US remake is coming out late this year, but the original Japanese ones are terrifying anyway: Watch them if you have the chance.

Also, like Samsa said Mullholland Drive was pretty creepy. I wouldn't say it was terrifying scary, but it makes you feel so alone and vulnerable and confused that you get this sort of constant feeling that nothing is right anywhere at that moment. It also took me a while to figure out what the hell was going on, but I think I have a pretty good idea now.

Blair Witch was alright, scary in places and a bit unnerving but it wasn't that terrifying.

Don't look Now is pretty freaky!

I always enjoyed the first Hellraiser movie as it had a great mix of scariness, sexuality, mystery, tension, and pure gore that I found fascinating for some reason. The puzzle box is such a great symbol of man's quest for the ultimate power/happiness/pleasure or whatever the individual wanted most,but greed ends up being the person's downfall.The second movie was OK, but the rest of the sequels sucked ass.

Or maybe I am over anlyizing a dumb horror movie, you make the call.

Well, maybe not so much terrifying as revolting and making me want to run away from the film, but Meet the Feebles; the Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover; and Salo were pretty intense movie-watching experiences.

The biggest cliche ever:

The Exorcist is scary as HELL!
I was 13 when I saw it and it gave me nightmares for month.

But I am a wussie. I had to have my boyfriend tell me what was going on in Signs because I couldn't watch. Same with the Others. Same with the Sixth Sense. Same with that beverage commercial where that fucking shriveled nasy head pops up out of the guy and starts talking.

Ugh. Just watch THAT.

Deffinantly The Shining, the original version.

I didn't watch it through the first two times, the twins kept freaking me out (i was just a kid.)

man, the book was great, though. nothing at all like the movie. at all. not a scary book (i don't really ever find him to be very scary, or even disturbing), but great science fiction. anyone who likes his books generally but steered cleared of that one should read it, it's a nice surprise.

I don't really get scared from movies like I used to when I was a kid, but the first Nightmare on Elm Street and The Exorcist scared the shit out of me. Serpant and the Rainbow too.

The Shining (original Nicholson version), even though it's not as scary to me now since I've seen it so many times. The first viewing of Blair Witch, before i knew it was a hoax. Communion.

It usually takes quite a lot to scare me, although I must admit that aliens do turn me into a cowering little girl.

holy shit. the decomposing body? that creepy old woman who knocked on the door? even in the beginning when that car crash happens and whatever her name is, miss brunette, when she gets up and walks down the hill, just the way it was shot from far away and the way she was walking just made her look like some freaking zombie or something. that creeped me out so much.

<font color="CC33CC">The tar dreadlocks guy was the scariest thing about that movie. And I agree that is was disturbing and powerful as it influenced my thinking for a week. Man, I need to get that.
