The Scariest Movie Ever Made? - Page 6

post #76 of 123
I hated "It". The clown was bad enough, but the scene where he reached out of the book and tried to grab the kids gave me nightmares.

That part made me shit bricks. Other than that, I love that movie. The library scene cracks me up every time.

One character that scarred me for life is Kane in Poltergeist II.

Also forgot about the Japanese "Pulse". Not a great movie, but the scene where the dude sees the ghost for the first time. That made me feel sick.

Scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. As did Pet Sematary. I rented it again recently. For a b movie with questionable production values, etc, it is still scary as fuck. Not just gory, it touches on all kinds of unpleasant emotions - dread of accidental death of children, illness in childhood, etc. Fuck, it's creepy.

One recent one that I thought was seriously creepy as well was the Orfanage, a Spanish movie. Ack.

In terms of stuff that actually sticks with me well after the movie's after, I think stuff that's more "creepy" than gorey is the scariest. Stuff like: -Some of Peter Tscherkassky's experimental films (i.e. Outer Space) -David Cronenberg's older stuff like Videodrome -Teshigahara's Woman in the Dunes -Lynch's Inland Empire -The Changeling from 1980 etc. etc. Also, Event Horizon is probably the last movie I remember ever giving me nightmares. What is it with that movie?

Watch the movie "Triangle", the one with Melissa George so you have the right title. It's very good, saw it the other day. You will like it. The Blair Witch Project is the only movie that ever frightened me.

I would recommend it. Martyrs was a good movie.

Highly recommended

Has anyone seen the Cube? Pretty cool movie/slightly freaky.

Cool movie + original, and low-budget at that. Rented on Amazon back in the day for 99 cents

The ending of BWP scared the bjzus out of me.

IIRC The Ring (w/ Naomi Watts) made me shift in my seat more than once.
Definitely not "The Scariest Movie Ever Made" though.

I watched this in the theater with a buddy late at night...and we were the only kids in there. That movie was freaky as hell. I'm probably getting the quote wrong but:
"They aren't saying 'save me', they are saying 'save yourself...from hell'"

This is the movie I recommend when people ask for a scary movie. The overall tone was so dark and gloomy, the story kept me on edge, and that ending....geez. I remember the theater all jumped back and was screaming (Myself included. Yeah, I'm a wuss). The worst part is, I was living alone in college at the time and my bed was literally next to the TV =(

Speaking of The Ring, is anyone a fan of the Japanese (OG) version? While I tend to usually favor originals, I feel that the American version did a better job, mostly due to effects,overall tone and the 'shock' scenes.

I hear you. I've seen most of the various Japanese and Korean versions, but the US remake stands out as the most effective. Certain images from that movie linger on...the tree silhouetted on top of the hill, the horse falling off of the ferry / the horses drowning on the beach, the fly...

I guess I need to give Event Horizon another try - I was disappointed when I originally saw it. The writer is a friend of a friend, apparently he was pretty disappointed with the finished product.

I don't know if this is "the scariest movie", but it's a fascinating riff on the zombie genre, definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something more thought provoking than bad Italian zombie flicks.
