Yes, but avoid the one labled "outtakes."

Most horror movies don't really scare me anymore. I may jump a bit, especially when my wife grabs my arm and grabs a chunk of flesh, but those scares never really stay with you.

For the last couple of years the movies that really creap me out are the good Asian horror movies. Kiyoshi Kurosawa movies like Kairo (Pulse) and Cure. The KIM Jee-Woon, South Korean movie called The Tale of Two Sisters, and the Japanese Dark Water. They all have moments that make my skin crawl, and that feeling stays for a while.

We also just watched The Devil's Backbone last night. That also had some pretty freaky moments, although I made sure that my wife didn't damage me in any way.

I saw this almost 5 years ago. I hear there's a remake that's going to be coming around soon.

(SPOILER ALERT)

At least the first one had a happy ending.

Yes, apparently they're going to be as common as Bond movies. The next one is apparently an action film too!

Are you sure it wasn't a crappy ending?

Hopefully it's not the "happy ending" that they refer to in Asian massage parlors that you're talking about!

Yes Blairwitch had me going. I agree it is underrated, yeah those actors did pull me in as well. I surely thought is was real, the frantic nature of many of those scenes I feel hold their own against any other horror movie. They totally out did many famous directors and actors and it left an impression on me right up there with the Exorcist, The Shining and so on. I'm not much into this stuff but that has to go down as a cult classic of the highest horror degree. I bet it you showed it to someone who didn't hear it was not real or whatever the case is, they would be terrified and absolutely hooked. Sometimes the fact that you know something is or isn't real kills your natural response to it.

How the hell am I supposed to learn anything with all this yackin' going on.

I agree with the fact that Blair Witch loses some of its impact when you know it's not real, but does anyone think that some of the other movies that scare us are? Does Jason truly walk around, gutting people in real life? The closer to reality it gets, the scarier it seems to be.

remember those pics are the subliminal ones, not actually seen in most later cuts of the exorcist. if you saw the first theatrical cut it was in that one and the later version youve never seen. it seems that shot resonates evil to this day....

I found out about the movie... saw the trailer... believed the footage was real... headed to the theater... and was SCARED STIFF! I have to admit I was never so creeped out in my life. In fact, my wife even wanted to sleep with the lights on that night and I didn't complain!

Of course, when I found out it was all a hoax the "magic" vanished and now I just consider it a crappy movie like everyone else. Needless to say I didn't bother watching the sequel ;-) But in my original mindset that movie scared the crap out of me.

i did the same thing. i watched that movie with my jaw in my lap. another movie that freaked me out was saw.

Although I agree with you. I knew going into it, that it was not real - and I saw it opening night, limited release (only 1 theater in our state showed it), midnight showing. I STILL had chills throughout the entire film, and the last scene felt like someone poured a bucket of water on me, when I realized what was going on (which I believe many people didn't/still don't).

BWP is a film that if you completely engross yourself into it, it is much more engaging. To be honest, nomatter how it was marketed, how can anybody believe that it was actually real?

Who thought the movie was real? All I heard about it was that it was a low budget movie shot on video that will scare your pants off. If you accept it for what it was, it worked, especially the last few minutes. I didn't think it was "real" when I watched it, and it did the trick for me. Those who criticize it because they thought they were watching something like a real documentary are just duping themselves.

No Exorcist III mentioned?

It is creeper than Exorcist I - and that is saying alot.

Not only was that face one of a women in the original, but the voice of Satan was Mecedes McCambridge (an old-time radio actress - died only last yr).

I don't know who did the voice for Satan in Exorcist III, but it was equally androgenous/creepy. and Brad Dourif is awesome in this one.

Don't bother with either Excorist 4's they are total turds.

there's that scene in Exorcist 3 where a nurse is attacked by that figure in white. When I saw it in the theatre I think the audience collectively produced a poo brick, and skipped a heart beat. I think it had alot to do with the audio in that scene.
