For me, it's the shining. I started to watch it when I was 8 years old. About the time the rotting corpse woman came up out of the tub after Danny, my parents suddenly realized they had neglected to send me to bed. So, that was the last image I saw before I had to go to sleep.

Not only did I have nightmares for a week, I couldn't go into the bathroom if the the shower curtain was drawn. I thought for certain that woman was coming to get me at some point.

Later on, seeing the movie all the way through, the scene with the twins was very freaky. Even the part with Danny on the Hot Cycle was strange with no music and the alternating wood floor to the swishing of the carpet.

For second place, I'd choose one scene: it's from the original Salem's Lot. You know the one - the vampire kid scratching at the window, begging to be let in. The fingernails scritching, scratching on the glass, the demonic makeup and the young age of the actor all rolled together to make it very creepy. The remake used an older actor and I don't think it was as effective not having a child's voice behind the face of that terrible monster.

3 pages and no mention of The Omen ? As I mentioned in a similar post a few months ago, this is the only movie that I still refuse to watch again.

Say Hello to Pazuzu played by a woman... so all you guys that are afraid of this image now know.

As for me the creepiest movie ever was Wolfen, saw it when I was 7 scared me so bad I had night terrors about it. I had such bad night terrors as a kid I was really limited on what I could watch. I remeber my mom telling me I had a night terror when I was 4 or 5 that was so bad it scared both her and my dad. Aparently I walked into their room while I was sleeping and screamed this blood curtling. The both jumped outta bed and when I saw them i began to shake interror so bad they thought i would die of fear. To this day I have no clue what I dreamt that night.

I will tell you I almost always have sore knucles and toes cause i can get so violent in my nightmares/terros that I will repeated punch or kick a wall (whatever is attacking me or I am attacking).


As far as recent movies go. The Japanese version of The Grudge as well as the American version. The woman that gets sucked into her bed. That scene really freaked me out. The other would be Hellraiser, I still have trouble going into a attic alone.


EDIT- BTW I love horror movies and about 47% of my dvd collection consists of it.

the omen films are pretty good imho, but the exorcist to me is truly terrifying. i once saw at a drive in on a dark and stormy nighty a movie called "fear no evil" i hid behind the seat of the car for most of that one. of the newer movies "the grudge" is probably the scariest i have seen in a while.

I'm not a big horror film watcher, but two things come to mind.

The first time I saw Carrie, the scene near the end at the grave made me jump about a foot out of my seat. The second time I saw it, many years later, the same scene still got me about half-a-foot out of my seat even though I knew it was coming.

When I was a kid, the scene near the beginning of Black Sunday where they killed the witch with the mask gave me nightmares.

I was going to mention "The Exorcist" also, but I don't think I have ever watched the movie completely through. I can not consider it the scariest I have seen, because I haven't seen it

Yeah, I have to agree with you on that one, although for me only the American version gave me that feeling. I knew what was coming, but I still jumped and let out an actual gasp. I don't know if that's happened since I was a little kid, but that movie did it to me. My wife jumped too, not because of the movie, but because of my startled reaction to that woman in the bed.

I still get the creeps just thinking about it. I couldn't tell you why, but it certainly was effective.

so what if it is a woman, it is the context it is shown in.

i remember a couple of dreams when i woke up screaming with no sound but really trying to get it out.

The American version of The Grudge has a lot of "boo" scares, but for me it didn't have any sustained terror. I like a good "boo", like in a Jason picture or Scream, but I love the moments in other films that grab you and knot you up for a few minutes. Here's my favorite one:

Exorcist- When Mom opens the door and Regan is thrashing up and down on the bed. The terror for me started when Mom is running upstairs after hearing the commotion in Regan's room. The look on Mom's face, the thrashing, and Regan's crying add up to one of the scariest scenes ever. That stays in your head, man.

I recall being scared by "The Planet of the Vampires" as a kid, but I'd probably think it was silly today. "The Shining" also scared me a lot; it was probably the first real horror movie I saw.

In college, "Eyes of Fire" scared me more than anything else. It was not gory, but very creepy. I recall that my roomate and I ended up watching it alone, but at separate times. We later discovered that each of us had taken a break in the middle of the movie to hang our with other people because it had freaked us out so much.

Alien on opening day.
If your first view was in the last 15-18 years it wouldn't rate. Back then it was a rare thrill.

Thanks alot khellandros66, that picture made my heart jump as I'm in a dark room at about 2am in the morning. You *&%$)*

Phantasm still has me checking under the bed sometimes. It has one of the nastiest images burned in my head from when one of those silver balls went inside this guy and chewed his insides up and flung him around the room and when the camera came back to him they showed his face with the silver ball and its blades coming out of his face...Urghhhh. Sometimes when I close my eyes I see that image and it scares the crap out of me, something tells me I'm gonna have trouble sleeping tonight. I bet in the morning my wife is going to tell me I was all snuggled up on her last.

Any bonus features on either one?

Blair witch messed with me until i verified it was fake. As others have said the last 2 or so minutes of that film are hypnotic and terrifying.

Heather's apology was so intense that for the life of me i thought it was real. Then running into the house downstairs to the final scene will live with me forever.

I just watched it the other day and it still gives me the creeps.

Those who bash the film really underate the work done by those actors, they pulled me in as believable people under extreme conditions.


I enjoyed High Tension as well. and just recently the hostel gave me the creeps.
