Have you seen an ACTUAL scary movie? recommend them please

Postby piney » Fri Aug 10, 2007 1:04 pm

Well...there are a lot of so-called scary movies around :/

But I haven't yet seen a movie that's actually scary, they're all pretty boring or absolutely hillarious...

so I was hoping for some suggestions. Something we could watch at night, with the lights off, with some popcorn and then scream, lol. Something really scary.

I mean...my mum said "The Poltergeist! We were screaming when we watched it when i was young" but then we saw it...and everyone was like "oh...ok...so the tree...took him...and...now the girl's gone...and objects are flying around...ok...scary..." and The Exorcist...well...it was ok i guess...so, anyone? Please? Very Happy

The Hills have Eyes part 1 or 2? Saw 3 was quite gruesome... White Noise 2: The Light? Which isn't really scary, just a bit jumpy...

I get freaked out by absolutely anything. I got scared by The Ring. I'm that bad. It's awful.

But the movies with stories based in real life are always the scariest.

i only saw Saw 2, gruesome, lol, but pretty cool Very Happy

the ring creeped me out a bit when it came out, parents were away and my cousins were over. we watched it then after the tape our phone rang and no one would answer it. haha!

movies based on real life? like what? i've heard of the exorcism of emily rose, they said it should be good and based on a true story...

I'd recommend Psycho, it's the scariest movie I've ever seen. It's not designed for sickos like some modern horror movies and it's more subtle (it wasn't built on the more blood=more scariness formula). Then again, if seeing lots and lots of blood and people getting tortured/killed in the most gruesome way possible is your idea of scary, you'll probably want to watch something Saw or Hostel. But if you liked The Ring, I'm sure you'll love Psycho (just make sure you get the black and white version).

Ahahaha, I love horror movies. ^_^

There are different kinds of scary movies, though....Thrilling ones are like The Ring, The Grudge (which wasn't that good), Hide and Seek....My favorite horror movies would be the three Saw movies. They're gruesome, yes, but they're also psychological. I can't wait for Saw IV.

The Exorcist was good, and if you weren't scared by that, hmm, I dunno....That is generally ranked the scariest of horror films. I've heard that some old movies, like Psycho, as he said, were quite scary...."Rosemary's Baby" I heard was very frightening. XD

So yeah, I guess it depends on the type of scariness you want.

lol, actually i just found it funny that the phone rang after the ring. Very Happy

oh yeah, psycho, i should be checking that out. but i heard the remake sucks. i mean, different actors, it has color, but every scene is exactly the same Shocked

the exorcist is the scariest?

well, type of scariness, actually it's not the gruesome scariness i prefer, haha, i just thought you know, to be fair, saw was great. but i want to see some scary movies that make you shriek. lol

I'd go with Psycho then. And in the remake, from what I heard, they added a scene where Norman, ughh... never mind. Anyways, the scenes might be basically the same but still go with the orginal. Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates is like Bruce Willis as Hannibal Lector. Besides, the remake doesn't have Alfred Hichcock.

The Silence of the Lambs always freaked me out. Se7en and Cape Fear (1991) are pretty intense too. These movies frighten me because they animate characters full of anger and inhuman horrors.

There is also Hellraiser... this movie is just sick! It's been ages since I have seen it, but from what I recall of the film, it was twisted.

The Shining. Definitely get The Shining. That's a really good movie. The Reaping, on the hand, sux. Don't buy that one. BTW The Shining is an incredible movie but it's not all that scary so if that's the only thing you care about, don't get it.
