    The scariest movie ever made was probably the first one. "The pictures... they're coming ALIVE!"

    Not the first movie, but apparently shocking in its day.

    I'd say the only time I left a movie theatre squeamish was after watch Event Horizon. Of course, I went in thinking it was a sci-fi, not a horror film.

    Jacob's Ladder and Candyman scared me too but I was much younger when those came out.

    Planet of the Apes was a horror film? According to the list it was.

    If, hypothetically speaking, you had watched Phantasm stoned and drunk as a teenager, and then had to walk home in the dark, it'd be way up the list. At least, I imagine that would be the case.

    Yes, highly hypothetical. [​IMG]

    The scariest movie I've ever seen that wasn't meant to be a horror movie - Trekkies.

    Great choices tiecollector! Good call on Event Horizon, its was scary, but it also sucked. I don't think I've ever jumped out of my seat that many times in a theater.

    I'm especially fond of the Hellraiser series...

    I loved Trekkies, Galaxy Quest too. If you thought Trekkies was scary maybe you should try watching American Movie. I don't know what to think of Event Horizon, it was just creepy as hell (people pulling out their own eyes etc), I wasn't exactly analyzing the storyline while jumping out of my seat. The premise was cool, which is why I went to go see it, but little did I know what I was in for...

    Exorcist 3 is actually pretty scary too. It has two scenes that are just creepy as hell - the old woman crawling on the ceiling and the hallway scene. Just really well done. The rest of the movie is pretty unremarkable.

    See, Galaxy Quest was a sci-fi-comedy. Trekkies is a documentary. Seriously. Completely different things. Do you ever stand out on your balcony and look north, imagining that you can see Brent Spiner's house from where you live, and just take a "Brent Break"??? If I were Brent Spiner, Or any of the cast of Star Trek, I would be scared out of my mind.

    Omen I and Rosemarys baby come to mind. "Irreversible" (in french) isnt a horror movie but is extremely disturbing to watch. featuring the lovely Monica Belluci too. Most people i know couldnt sit through it!

    Yeah Galaxy Quest was different genre, I just thre it in there because it is really good. I need to go rent Trekkies and watch it again (this time not in a room full of people talking) because I don't remember the Brent Break. I've often been accused of looking like Brent Spiner. If you want to see a strange movie, go watch Gummo (another movie I had no idea what I was in for).

    alan, i've been trying to think of "irreversible" to put on my rental queue, but the name kept escaping me------thanks!!!

    gummo is a good rec. and glad to see rubber johnny on here.

    the face surgery scene in "eyes without a face" made my wife avert her eyes... that's rare.
