  • Saw wasn't scary AT ALL but they were still really good movies. The descent scared me the most out of any movie, and I am never scared by movies.
  • The scariest movie of all time I think is the original Exorcist movie. I think it came out in the early 70's. I still get scared when I watch that and I am almost 30!
  • I'd like to help you out, but I've really never been scared by a movie. Once, by a movie called Phantoms, but I was younger. Now it has no effect on me. I think most people are so used to movies that they don't get that scared anymore. I remember hearing stories of how people would start screaming in the theaters when The Exorcist came out, and a few others. But not anymore.
  • Do you mean scary or gory. I thought "1408" was pretty freaky.
  • watch dead silence dammnnn boy shit is scary
  • 1408. There was almost no gore and I found it to be one of the most profoundly scary movies I've seen in years. Neither I nor my friend with whom I saw the movie (both veteran horror watchers) went to bed for over an hour afterward. Heck; thinking about now it still freaks me out. My friend saw it again and said that it was not quite as scary the second time around; I will have to do that.
  • The only movie I can remember ever scaring me was the Fog, the original one. I haven't seen the new one & the Car but thats when I was 11 or 12. I haven't really found anything to scare me much I guess Hellraiser was ok but mostly gory then scarey.
  • Stir of Echoes *really* freaked me out. I saw it when I was about 22 or so; you have to watch it either by yourself or with one other person, and it's a lot more effectively scary in the dark... :o
  • I don't really believe in "scary" movies. I've never been scared by a movie. *shrug* but I think that either Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original or remake) were pretty close. I think I can only even CONSIDER possibly being scared if it's supposedly based on true events.
  • I agree with "The Exorcist 1 " but the scene from Exorcist 2 in the hospital when the nurse comes out of the morgue and a body in a white sheet with its arms stretched out following her still give me the chills...Also Poltergeist and The Omen were good...Friday 13th original is up there also and can't forget "Nightmare on Elm street" when he sucked that women through the letter opening at the end or when Freddy came up through the water bed...burrrr...lol
  • I was really scared by the US version on The Grudge, that really freaked me out. I didn't go to bed for ages after watching it, instead I stayed up watching comedy shows so ease the mood. I have since watch the Japanese version - didn't like that one at all- It was even scarier!!!!!
  • Watch Hitchcock's the Birds or Psycho. Or try other Hitchcock films. Have you ever seen A Clockwork Orange? It's not scary - just disturbing. But, it definitely should keep you up at night.
  • salem's lot. eeeek. i can't even talk about it.
  • The Strangers
  • the one where you get a call and hear yourself dieing on your cell phone. damn i forgot what its called.
  • I like the original "The Haunting" (in black and white), and the Japenese version of "The Eye". "The Grudge" wasn't bad.
  • you know what scared me shitless the other night? shit.. i forgot... i'm trying to remember what it was.. I SWEAR I JUST HAD IT! Oh yeah.. the original omen :) :| its scary as hell LOLLL
  • I haven't been scared by many horror movies, but I would have to say that the "Omen" movies have always gotten to me. I think it's the music they play when "Damien" is getting ready to kill someone.
  • "The Unborn" .................
  • Have you seen Hostle? I think thats how you spell it... its really gross and bloody! I won't be going to Europe! LOL the second one was more graphic than the first one though
  • I'll tell you what I thought was a really scary movie the first time I saw it....House of 1000 corpses. especially the very end.
  • Try the Exorcism of Emily Rose. I'm 20 and that movie scared the crap outta me.
  • I'm 19 tbh horror movies don't scare me not even when I was a bit younger, I don't like blood and gor much so I some times cringe at gross scenes. But no I if there over the top with gor I think errr get on with it of nearly be sick, Saw was really good that kind of thing I think wow that is so creative and clever. Fredy hehe hes just funny. Ture stoires I some time think mmm creepy or that guy is sick. I HATE animal killing :( there is no point to it usless it useful to the story "40 days of night" and I still don't like it... it pisses me off. I think if anything would scare me is ghost stories and they still don't. My mum is like me, she told me the only movie that REALLY scare her was "changeling" no i donr mean the new movie out with that creepy woman in. Its and old film that is really scary but I haven't see it.
  • I have been watching horror movies since I'm abut 7 years old...I am now 32..the only three movies that have ever scared me were The Exorcist, Stephen King's It and The Descent...The Descent I saw very recently and it really really freaked me out..the other two were when I was younger, but Exorcist is classic and It freaked me out because I don't like clowns...
  • watch high tension, its scary and disturbing. It freaked me out and im 23.
  • I'd suggest "See No Evil" ....
  • High Tension. You really need to watch it if you want to be scared.
  • Ju-on (Japanese version of The Grudge) Watch it here http://www.asian-horror-movies.com/ju-on.php
  • I really think it all depends on so many individual aspects as to what makes a movie scary -- one's mood, where one saw it, how one saw it, etc, so it's hard to recommend a movie when what scares one person, won't affect another. ( For instance, the first "Saw" I found very innovative and suspenseful but not scary. Many mentioned "1408"; that movie did nothing but irritate me. :) ] BUT, all of the suggestions here, including "1408", have a potential scare factor. I'd add: "Trilogy of Terror," a made-for-TV movie; three short films starring Karen Black -the third has a nasty little Zulu warrior doll that comes to life - - decades before Chucky. The original " Funny Games" upset me for weeks- - not so much scared, just upsetting. It will probably sound silly to you but "Cloverfield" scared me to death. The original 1968 "Night of the Living Dead" and the original 1963 " The Haunting " - both of these must be watched at night, lights out, no potty breaks, no talking, must be alone with no interruptions - - Be Well. :) [ I talk too much, yes.]
  • You should watch silent hill, that's really dark and pretty creepy. Thing is though I watched it on tv recently and they went and cut it, I was pretty pissed at that because they cut the best part where this woman gets ripped to shreds by barbed wire and pieces of flesh go everywhere.
  • Some others mention the original Exorcist. I know one guy who was then about your age who literally slept with the lights on for weeks. It was a great movie, but I was not similarly affected.
  • If you really want scary, try living in my neighborhood.
  • Try living in my neighborhood, it's the last house on the left.
