Mine - The Ring or The Omen.
with John Travolta
or a horrible horror film called The Sect.
Fucked up man!
There's a bit where a giant black prelican type of bird eats someone's neck and they also pull a guy's face off with hooks.
There was also lots of insects in the bed stuff. It was utterly ming.
i must see it
I must check this out too.
just for the sound effects
i watch loads of horror films but that one freaked me out more than all of them.
also, [rec], which came out last year, is fucking terrifying at the end
I watched it when i was about 10, its the only time ive ever had to turn off a film through fear.
just....aaahhh.... *winces*..... *wets self*
Candyman Candyman Candyman
good one. Those films are terrifying.
in school and i got detention for "scaring fellow pupils".
I never realised films could get so bad.
there was this one shot in particular in the third one when hes running on his way to rescue kirsten dunst from a suspended taxi, and he runs past a massive american flag, and for like 3 seconds hes imposed upon this huge american flag backdrop and i was like oh come on
...the tobe hooper one, obviously.
'Them' was damn scary too.
i have it on sky+ but i'm home alone and, just no, now way am i watching it tonight.
though there's the obvious "aaaaaarrrrghhhhh!!!! I can't watch" moment, I don't think it's the sort of thing that genuinely chills me.
but it looks quite good - is it? The Japanese do horror pretty well....
also Dark Water is an excellent Japanese horror.
there's another one I saw recently but can't remember what it's called - about soldiers and fields and getting lost. Quite creepy.
this is a short film from the 90s and it's horrific, i had to turn it off. anyone seen it?
it is pretty nasty
what d'you reckon's the scariest film of the last few years?
I walked in on my sister watching this. I stayed for the last half hour or so.
I can never, ever go to Venice.
I do now own it on DVD but I'm still not going to Venice.
That's the one I was talking about before - yes it was Korean not Japanese, sorry.
It is, R-point.
can pisture the cover. it's one of those Tartan Films Asia Extreme films right. I'll have to check it out!
i want a proper scary horror movie night.
is the scariest recent film
and the ending is ridiculously scary
The Orphanage. Seriously, seriously creepy. Brrrr.
the scariest bit for me was the granny in the corner bit!
their masks though, they're horrible!
It is just disturbing.
plus debbie harry's in it
the half dead man dragging himself accross the floor has stuck in my mind since childhood. Lovely.
Me too now.
this is exactly what I'll be worrying about when I can't sleep tonight: "would he use Vanish, or Dirt Devils or something else?"
I blame you in advance for my sleepless night.
Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I have to see that!
"head on a stick" yuk.
i actually had to turn that off
when I was about 9.
The Orphanage kept me gripped for most of the running time, and I think I probably jumped out of my seat a couple of times.
fucked me up as a kid, not half as scary now though.
i was quite little and it just stuck with me for ages afterwards.
i don't find it all that scary now.
watching that at night on headphones is still unsettling
If you're in the right mood Blair Witch can be pretty scary too
I think that Rosemary's Baby certainly evokes a certain dread too though
A Volkswagen with a mind of it's own.
with the child-catcher or child-stealer or whatever it was
My folk’s neighbours recorded the birth of their daughter and showed the film at her christening party.
Not that scary; just, very wrong and unsettling in a ‘what the fuck’ kinda way
Bette Davies is TERRIFYING.
During that sexy merging party thing, With the dad talking out of his arse. It's scary because it could happen.
but I generally don't find films scary.
so i guess i find that scary, but its not even scary for me its just shit thats sick and i cringe
like ripping off fingernails,
its all about j-horror
Oh yeah and Candyman. Never watching that shit again.
And the brain bits from Hannibal still make me feel a bit sick. Also village of the damned when I was about 5.
the interrogation and the head splitting open bit kept me awake for days afterwards.
I love that film. It's the screams that make it though. When the blood is burnt by the wire and he starts moaning. Ewww.
The bit where the doctor gets his arms bitten off whilst trying to resuscitate one of the men is horrific.
the bit where the rabbits get gassed still fucks me up.
Now, I dont know. I dont think a truly scary film will come out of hollywood in the next few years, its all a bit too ott. The scariest ones are the ones where, when you actually think about 'it', its far scarier that the initial blood/guts/gore clusterfuck it throws at you.
The ring and something else I cant remember atm........................
on the account of watching it when i was quite young. never again.
