I think the list does display some good scary movies, but then again, its everyone's opinion. I think the scariest movie I have ever seen is Pet Cemetary, but I haven't seen that many good scary movies. I think that the Excorcist was not scary at all, nor was the Blair Witch Project, or Jaws. I think that the Halloween series and the Shining were pretty good but that's about it. and I don't think that 28 days later should be defined as a scary movie.

The scariest movies are those that are psychologically disturbing not any of that gore-fest that commonly passes as scary.

My surfing buddy here in Japan teaches English, and for one obstreperous student he always brings a video of The Ring. If the student misbehaves, he takes out the video and threatens to make her watch it. She's completely convinced that if she watches it, she'll die, and is terrified of the mere thought of that movie.

I agree.Misery scared me to death and I also thought the much maligned What Lies Beneath was pretty scary too.

conventional horror movies don't do anything for me. Jesus Camp sounds pretty scary, though.

Rosemary's baby is the ****. The opening music is so peaceful yet so disturbing/haunting.

Pearl Harbor. So bad it's harrowing. Three hours of my eyes trying to rotate back in my head and my brain wishing it had a screensaver.

The hobbeling (sp?) scene made me cringe more than the Piano Wire Scene from Audition. I have a very hard time being scared from a movie though. Its kinda just like in my head I know its a movie so its nothing to be affraid of, guess I just think too much.

I think it's the utter realism that is so compelling; I mean, somewhere in Texas there must be a decrepit incestual family of cannibals bent on murdering nubile young people.

Nobody has seen Funny Games then? It's not necessarily scary but it's messed up in a thoroughly unpleasant way, without much of the messed up stuff being that explicit. That said, it pains me to admit it, but I found 8mm gave me bad dreams for a long while afterwards. I'm not particularly fond of Nicholas Cage, and the movie wasn't particularly well done, but the very idea of snuff movies horrifies me.
