    Default Favorite Scary Movie?

    In honor of the day, what is everybody's favorite scary movie?

    I like the original Halloween and although not really scary - Shaun of the Dead is awesome .

    Don't Look Now. I can never look at Little Red Riding Hood without being creeped out.

    I like "Shaun of the Dead." I'm not a big horror movie fan, the humour makes it bearable for me. (:

    Night of the Living Dead. George Romero's original.

    Watched it on KTVU's Creature Features and spent the rest of the night hiding under all my stuffed animals in my bedroom.

    The original nightmare on elmstreet *freaked* me out as a young teenager. The Shining was a masterpiece.

    I am a serious genre afficionato and nothing breaks the "spell" of a movie (and annoys the hell out of me) like people doing very stupid things. In that situation, I always think that they just deserve to die. For example, I'm watching the Strangers right now. Lets see....you know a group of people are taunting you. What do you do? You go outside, one at a time, to see if you can reason with the people taunting you. Pulll-eeeze!

    Silence of the Lambs is up there for me. I love being on the edge of my seat.

    Nightmare on Elm Street (original) was really scary for it's time.

    I dont mind a good campy scary movie, and the early SAW movies were fun also, along w/Paranormal Activity.

    Paranormal Activity just freaked me the hell out, lol. Had a hard time sleeping that night....kept staring at our door, haha.

    Silence of the Lambs was a great one. I also did enjoy The Other's, with Nicole Kidman.

    Nightmare on Elm Street is also a classic!

    I think the scariest movie/book was Stephen King's The Stand. Maybe because it really could happen. Every time I had a cold for the longest time after that I thought "This is it!".

    I'm not fond of scary movies. Goes back to when I was a kid and we all went to see "The House on the Haunted Hill." There was a group of us - about ten or so, all around ten or so, and we pumped ourselves up even before the movie started by scaring each other. The movie started, the first ghost (or whatever) jumped out, and we all screamed bloody murder and fell to the floor behind the seats. A couple started crying. We all ended up leaving after about, oh maybe fifteen minutes if that. Watched it awhile back and its still scary to me. *shiver*

    I LOVE The Stand! I read it every few years and watch the dvd (yep, I own it!) I love Gary Sinese as Stu Redman!

    My favorites are (for being scary):
    Silence of the Lambs
    Hanibal Rising
    IT (the one Stephen King book that I could not read at night!)

    At Halloween, tho cheesy, I love to watch Hocus Pocus and Motel Hell!


    Silence of the Lambs was filmed in Washington, Pa. and surrounding areas. The first time I watched it on video, was at my cousins 1800's farmhouse outside of Washington. It was late at night and my other cousin and I left to go back home..it had snowed, it was about 1am and as we stood outside surveying the darkness, we looked at each other and without a word, took off running to his car!! It was pretty funny!

    I am always creeped out in the shower for at least a week after watching it.

    The Shining. My daughter occasionally will freak me out by coming into my room in the dark saying "redrum, redrum".

    Without a doubt, the scariest movie I've ever seen is

    Night of the Hunter.
