I don't usually equate scares with gore, but I guess The Ring has both. And happens to be a good movie overall ta boot.

I actually jumped more during The Grudge, though. :)

I'll agree on the Ring. One of the scariest movies ever made and it was rated PG-13.

Jaws scared the shit out of me when I was little.

I was afraid to even take a bath after seeing it.

It doesn't scare me any more though. However when I was little that was the scariest movie ever.

Now, movies don't really scare me.

I've never gotten scared or jumped or jumped at a horror movie in my life. The only thing I've ever watch that stuck with me or haunted me after viewing it was the end of Seven.

I will be perusing this thread with great curiosity in the hopes of finding something that will keep me awake at night.

The original "Last House of the Left."

With the banjo music, unflinching violence, and slapstick subplot you'll want to take a shower afterward.

But, I'm a sucker for ghost stories and the made-for-TV version of "A Haunting in Connecticut" freaked me out.

Gorey?

Hmmm. The Haunting, when I first saw it--the original black-n-white one, not the noisy remake--scared the shit out of me, but it has zero gore.

I haven't seen the remake but it's impossible to recreate that 70s grime. Wes signed off on the new one but he also said they removed the campier aspects - which actually made the movie more disturbing.

"Scary" is a tough one. I love horror but find most movies to be unnerving, nauseating, or thrilling - rarely scary.

In terms of gorey 80s camper movies, I thought "The Burning" was actually pretty scary, and underrated.

The Exorcist and The Exorcist III. The Exorcist III has some of the scariest scenes in any movie I've ever seen. You don't need to see The Exorcist II beforehand, in fact it's preferred that you skip that one. That was a terrible sequel. The third one, though, is a masterpiece.

The Ring and the Japanese original Ringu.

Event Horizon and Drag Me to Hell.

And of course, The Shining.

If it's gore you're looking for, try Dead Alive.

Best slasher movie since the 80s, if you ask me.

As far as scary goes, the tension and build up in The Shining is pretty rough.

I haven't seen it, but I hear nothing but good things about Descent. I bought it a couple weeks ago and have been saving it for tomorrow night. I'm very excited to finally see it.

My all-time favorite movie, American Werewolf in London is pretty damn scary (the scene on the moors and the scene in the subway tunnel still put me on the edge of my seat), although it's lessened by it's humor.

And, not to blow up your expectations, but The Descent is easily one of the most heart-racing movies in recent memory.

I overall enjoyed the American version of The Ring better than the Japanese original (having Naomi Watts definitely didn't hurt as well) but found the original Japanese ending (which took place in a claustrophobic, darkened apartment) infinitely scarier.

The night I first time I saw it, I ended up sleeping with the lights on.

Brian Defferding

He directed once before in 1980 for a film called "The Ninth Configuration."

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081237/

It stars both Jason Miller (who played Damien Karras in the Exorcist movies) and the legendary Stacy Keach. I haven't seen it yet but it's on my queue. It looks like it's a mix between One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and Platoon.

It's been a chore to not pop it in and watch it. But because of money limitations, I won't be going out and doing anything for Halloween, so I knew I'd need something new to make it a good night. I enjoyed Dog Soldiers, even though I barely count it as a werewolf film, and the clips and trailers I've seen for Descent have me very, very amped to see it.

Agreed about Dog Soldiers. It barely holds together as a movie and Descent was a massive leap forward.

I haven't see the original Ringu but I thought Ju-On (the original Grudge) had some cool jump-scares and the room full of cats was crap-tastic.

Let the Right One In, yep, all around good movie but not scary.

I'm with you on both counts.

I like gory movies, I hate scary movies.

After I watched The Grudge, I was looking over my shoulder every time I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water. That movie creeped me out so bad I didn't watch another horror for almost a year. Seriously.

You aren't the only one. That scene gave me nightmares for months. In my circle of friends, it rants somewhere between the crab walk in The Exorcist and the ending of Blair Witch in Horror Factor 10.

How something so genuinely scary can sneak into such a crap film - especially a "funny" Superman movie - is beyond me.

One of my favorite movies of all time but I don't find it scary.

Ingenious, nervewracking, and moody but I think I like it too much to be scared by it.

Same with the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's a work of art - although Leatherface's initial hammer attack always gets me.

Superman 3 was freeeaky. But as a kid, it was the closet monster from Poltergeist that had me change my bedtime routine for over a year.

As much as I loved Ringu, I thought the American version was better. Just better editing and directing, better scares, and I liked what they did with the camera, the subtle shots that illustrate our dependency on television. I think The Ring is the only American remake that's better than the japanese original though. Ju-On: The Grudge is definitely better than the American one.

If possible try to get the unrated cut. I don't think there are many changes except for the ending. The US got a really shlocky horrible ending, while the UK ending is far superior. One of the best horror films ever if you ask me.


I've heard great things about "Let the Right One In"....

Amazingly moody and perfect in many ways. But not scary. Though if you love having movies that stick with you afterward (I do) then this one is for you. It gives a pretty great perspective on a number of things.

Picked up Snyder's "Dawn of the Dead" and friggin' loved it... I liked it better than the original... also picked up "Buried Alive" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0479199/), not for any reason other than it was "2 for $10" horror movies at Entertainment Outlet and I thought the cover looked fun. Plus it's the old "Teens go camping" deal so how bad can it be?
