    Just in time for Halloween...I'm interested to see what movies have scared the people on the board.

    So what films did it for you? Did Jaws keep you out of the water? Did The Exorcist make you afraid to sleep? Did Friday the 13th make you terrified that you would fall when running away from a knife-wielding undead psychopath who never moves faster than a slow shuffle and for some unknown reason you would be unable to do anything other than crawl slowly away from him even though both of your legs were fine? :tongue:

    What movies have scared the sh*t out of you?

    I don't know if you consider "Silence of the Lambs" a horror movie. But even after seeing it (after I had read the book 3 times) it still gave me nightmares! I'm into more psychological horror type things, not the slasher flicks.


    I remember seeing "The Birds" on tv as a kid and it scaring me to death, Psycho too.

    I would definitely consider "Silence of the Lambs" scary. Pretty much if it scared you...it counts. The scene in the basement at the end of the movie where Clarice is flailing around in the dark as Buffalo Bill waves his hand in front of her face is horrifying to me.

    Shogun, which Dawn of the Dead?

    the old one. Slow moving zombies used to scare the absolute shit out of me. Now i'm reading World War Z. Good read for October.

    I try to get a horror dvd each Halloween and am stuck between the original Hellraiser, Dawn of the Dead (original) and Pumpkinhead.

    I thought the remake of Dawn of the Dead was really great actually. Lots of very scary moments - I thought the moment where the little girl kills the main character's husband who then comes after her is very freaky.

    But there was a moment in the original Night of the Living Dead where one of the slow moving, lumbering zombies lurches at the heroine that totally haunted me for weeks after I saw it for the first time...so I understand being freaked out by the slow zombies as well!
