81 Comments on "Your Turn"
The Shining and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Bad taste! Yes! Love the lawn mower scene. "I'm a Derek. And Derek's don't run"
your mother sucks cocks in hell!
Disturbing; A Serbian Film, Salo. Scariest; Hellraiser because i grew up in a fundy home. Favorite; Carrie because i grew up in a fundy home!
I love the Walking Dead! Their flesh eaters are so cool. I love the new red eyed ones in this season. Did anyone notice the red eyed walker Rick was looking at?
As far as movies go, the 1979 'Salem's Lot directed by Tobe Hooper still creeps me out. I can't believe that was on TV with the vampires inching toward them!
Also, the original Dawn of the Dead. I love my flesh eaters. I liked Land of the Dead too with Simon Baker.
Christine the movie about the car
Exorcist followed by Prince of Darkness (great call Tara!).
Prince of Darkness
I hate horror movies, o get so scared. the original wicker man with Edward Woodward and paranormal activity
Well…The Exorcist was definitely one of the scariest…the uncut version with her going backwards down the stairs:( Jesus, that was creepy! Thirteen Ghosts was probably the coolest horror movie I have seen, love the originality.Best made for TV movie would be tied with Salem's Lot (the finger to the glass just gives me chills) and Don't Go To Sleep (again, the pizza cutter rolling up the banister…brrr)Original Evil Dead gets 2 thumbs up as well!
The Changeling is terrifying!!! I had so many nightmares as a kid.
Oh God Unsolved Mysteries used to creep me out too!
Tru ha! Not that your life is a horror, it was just a funny comment to read.
For some reason the US version of The Grudge scares the living shits out of me. Baaahhhh it is making me spasm just thinking about it.
This shit is the scariest thing I have ever seen. I can't watch it ajkdjkdfkjadsjhads gaahh again with the fear spasms. Seriously, if you do not like snakes, then do not click the link. Don't touch the big red button!
Oh snap gotta put Carrie. Ooo child! Scared the crap out of me when I was little.
The Shining, The Exorcist, Fire Walk With Me, Body Snatchers 70's version,
Also love, Sleepaway Camp, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Possession with Isabella Adjani ans Sam Neil!!!!
Oh GAWD so much more but I'm not going to be that one.
My favorit horror movie is Creepshow 2.
Scariest – Idk that I've ever been scared of a scary movie but I will say, to this day, I still can't watch a single episode of Unsolved Mysteries (the original one with the scary music, not the ones that air mow with Dennis Farina)
My favourite horror film is an old one from the 1950s, "Night of the Demon," (released in the US as "Curse of the Demon"). It starred Dana Andrews.
I'm a horror writer, so I don't usually find horror movies scary.
Child play 1-3Scream 1-3Halloween series.Candyman
Favorite: Carrie (original)
Scariest: Psycho (original)
Favorite is Thirteen Ghosts. I watch it every Halloween. F. Murray Abraham, Matthew Lillard, Tony Shalhoub – what's not to love? Shannon Elizabeth is also brilliant, of course.
My answer for both is all the "Friday the 13th" movies. Jason Voorhees has always scared me more than any other horror movie character.
I also like all the cheesy horror films from the 1980s, that was the best decade for horror. "Chopping Mall" "Pieces" "Happy Birthday to Me" etc.
I don't like the "torture porn" horror movies that were big in the early to mid 2000s. They weren't scary, they were just gross.
The Changeling with George C. Scott and The Haunting of Julia with Mia Farrow (seriously do not watch these by yourself)!
@Barton Fink – Burnt Offerings is great too, agreed!
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the one from the 50s, not the remakes.) I remember staying awake all night after watching it at my Grandma’s.
Psycho. I had no problem watching Friday the 13th, but it took years for me to watch Psycho past the shower scene.
Favorite? I don’t think I could narrow that down to even a short list. I used to watch and love every one I could.
And don't forget Sleep Away Camp. That one grossed me out.
@chopchopWe did that too. Ever rent Basket Case? THE most awesome cheese fest EVAH.
>>Salem's Lot – 70's made for TV version<<
The younger brother scratching at the window. God, I loved that so much. It still creeps me out.
>>Play Misty for me<<
Have you seen the original? With Bruce Davidson? Much creepier.
That one still gives me nightmares.
Texas Chainsaw M ('74) was fun as Hell. Not so much scary, though
Cape Fear (Scorsese remake) made me almost mess my pants. That was a scary movie.
2 good cheesy horror movies: Bad Taste and Class of Nuke Em High. Crap, 3, as I have to add Re Animator. Thank you to Fangoria magazine for introducing them to me in 8th-9th grade.
Favourite: everything with Bruce Campbell!scariest: the Exorcist – it really freaked me out as a child [clearly my parents were insane, since they let me watch it when i was 7..]I was afraid for monthsthen again I have not watched The Ring, Paranormal Activities or the sort.
Since I can't edit, I need to add that my favorite "April Fool's Day" is from 1986, not the recent remake.
Blair Witch (the original) the first week it was out, I wouldn't be alone at night for that week.
In junior high, my BFF & I used to walk to the video store and rent the cheesiest horror movies we could find.
Favorite: April Fool's Day
Scariest: When a Stranger Calls, the original. "Have you checked the children" Gaaaah! I still get goosebumps!
PS. I'm fucking old.
Scariest: "Showgirls" (I always giggle remembering that quote of one movie in the "scary movie" series).
Favourites: "Dark City" (not really horror), "the crow" (neither), "army of darkness" (more a comedy, but great otherwise), "the toxic avenger" (more a comedy, but great otherwise too), "the wicker man" (the one which is not a comedy, meaning the 1973 version without bees or Mr. Cage), "the serpent and the rainbow" (the first scene is horribly amazing) and "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer".
Prince of Darkness (a John Carpenter classic)!
Agree on both.
Favorite: a tie between Watcher in the Woods and Psycho. Scariest: not really horror, but Alien (and going back to yesterday's convo, possibly The Island of Dr Moreau)
I forgot all about Phantasm. That was scary!!
The Believers, starring Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smits.
The scariest movie I've ever seen in my life is the first "Alien". By the time that movie was over I was practically under my seat I was so terrified. I haven't seen it since. If I run into it channel surfing I change the channel. What a letdown "Aliens" was!
Scariest non-horror movie I've ever see was "The Godfather II". Michael Corleone goes to hell.
@Barton Fink – Burnt Offering Creeped me out!
My list includes:
Salem's Lot – 70's made for TV versionExorcistThe RingPlay Misty for me
Conversely, after married when HBO first came along, hubby and I watched The Exocist". We were in a crazy silly mood-without drugs too!- and we were goofing our dog was possessed instead of a girl. So to us it was ,"Your mother eats dog biscuits in hell", with us rolliing on the ground, and when her head went around, we almost died laughing. All night hubby imiatated her head going around, and us talking in that horrible voice about dogs mother being whore in hell. Still crack up to this day.
One of my faves is THE PYX starring Karen Black. It's on Youtube in its entirety — it's a beautiful film, with surreal moments. The alternate title is THE HOOKER MURDERS. I also like Burnt Offering.
This isn't a movie, but it still scares the HHHHEEELLL out of me. The walking Dead.
