    Crossroads....with Britney Spears




    The thought of watching that scares the **** outta me



    Seriously though...can you be scared by a film? jumpy maybe but scared ****less?

    How about the new Halloween film? House of 1000 corpses, Killer Klowns from Outer Space (which you can download on XBL btw Dan)

    High School Musical, and 1 of the 3 , well scary, and i you watch it with a young niece, oh hell that's 2 scary

    This has to be the most scariest of them all

    Shutter (the Thai version from 2004) is quality.

    We watched I Am Legend the other night and g/f was scared for few days after! as was she watching Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Original Version not the remake.

    The Grudge - Japanese version rather than US version - is also a good film

    Kerry Katona on GMTV yesterday morning ?

    Search in Google for "best horror films"

    Here is one list

    bloodletters.com/mov…es/

    How about "The Thing"

    The Thing definately.

    Audtion
    Dark water
    (the original versions, natch)

    ANd you can't beat the original Halloween, even if you've seen it a hundred times before

    Saw 5 is out for Halloween, still haven't seen 4 due to 3 being rubbish.

    Depends what you define as scary! 1408 is a good film, not blood thirsty but still gets to you a bit i found. Also maybe check out Silent Hill? Thats pretty good

    IT was pretty scary

    The Exorcist....... probably the worst horror!

    or "The thing".

    Alien or Aliens, nothing scarier.

    What makes Alien so great is the constant feel of uneasiness. Right from the beginning you have a feeling that something is wrong. The crew is not particularly friendly towards each other, and you truly feel all the in-group tension. The ship itself is a huge worn out industrial-style maze of halls and corridors, and it feels more like a prison than a place to live. It is as if not only the alien but also the ship itself is against the humans. The Alien itself is the scariest monster in history because it is a ruthless, soul-less parasite completely devoid of any human or civilized traits. The design of the monster is a stroke of genius. Sure it has a humanoid form, but it has no facial traits or anything else which could give away emotions or intentions. Its actions reveals no weaknesses nor civilized intelligence. The Alien is more or less the opposite of everything human and civilized, plus the creature is more well-adapted to the inhumane interior of the ship than the humans who build it. To sum up, you then have a setting where the humans are caught in a web of in-group tensions, an inhospitable ship and the perfect killer which thrives in the ships intestines. You almost get the feel that the humans are the ones who are alienated to each other and to their own ship.

    This is not a story about heroic people who boldly teams up against evil. It's a story about ordinary people facing true fear, which is the fear without a face. The fear we can't understand and can't negotiate with, because its only goal is to survive on the expense of us. It's a story where some people bravely fight back whilst others are destroyed by the terror. It's a story where people a killed in a completely random way. There is no higher-order justice behind who gets to live and who dies. All seven characters are just part of a race where the fittest - not necessarily the most righteous - will prevail, and all seven characters start the race on an equal footing. None of them are true heroes, and none of them are true villains.

    The terror isn't just the Alien itself, it's the entire atmosphere which gets so effectively under your skin, that you just can't shrug it off after the end credits like you can with so many other Hollywood horror movies. The title "Alien" doesn't just refer to the monster, it is the theme of the movie and it is the feeling you have during and after the movie.

    ][Rec] - everybody must watch it. The american remake ]Quarantine looks pretty good as well. An exact copy of Rec but in English

    Arachnophobia used to scare me when i was a kid, but its not really a horror film.

    I got that from lovefilm the other day and haven't watched it yet... think I'm just gonna send it straight back if it's that scary :oops:

    lol I was brave and just watched Rec (mainly cos my hubby was taking the pee outta me for being a wuss :giggle:) And it wasn't scary!!! I'm sooo disappointed now! It was just silly & predictable!

    I was just read this thread and love being scared so was thinking of "getting" Rec - not so sure now

    Oh Fire, I'd worked myself up about it & it was a huge disappointment... Hubby said it was like a Scoobydoo film :giggle: It was just sooo predictable!
