As an 8 or 9 year-old, Child's Play scared the ever-loving shit out of me.

Sometimes, when I get up to take a piss in the middle of the night, I will have flashbacks of Paranormal Activity.

Halloween did it for me. For months after seeing it, I was lookin' around every corner of my paper route to make sure the boogeyman wasn't lurking there.

Spoilers
Oh ya, Paranormal Activity was an instant classic, and yet I know so many people who got bored with it and didn't finish it. That's the thing with an American audience, they're stupid. Lots and more people disliked the camera style, and so they just lost interest in the film before the crazy sh*t happened.
To me, this was another horror film that got the idea right. In this movie you don't see any monsters, no unstoppable killers,... you just feel something is wrong... And the next thing you know you're being drug out of your bed by an invisible demon. That's a fantastic idea to terrify your audience with, because what person hasn't had a creepy feeling in a dark room? Now every time you get an eerie feeling you're going to think about that invisible monster dragging you to hell. That's great.

The first time that I ever watched the Evil Dead I remember so freakishly watching that possessed woman crawl over the ceiling and hide in the upper corner. Meanwhile Ash looked for her hiding behind furniture and such in that big open room. You could see her crouched up there, waiting, but Ash was clueless as to where she could be, and it created this terrible tension that I can still feel. Ugluglglg creepy.

I'm not ashamed to say that the other night I watched The House at the end of the Street and enjoyed the cliche scary moments.

Drag me to Hell is amazing combination of horror and fun.

I've never been a fan of horror movies really. I just picked up The HOuse at the end of the Street to see Jennifer Lawrence.

I can't think of a movie that's ever really scared me. The X-Files intro is about the closest thing I can think of. Creepy music.

Guess it depends on the definition of scary.
Not scary in the "aahh it's a decapitated head" way, but scary in the "that actually represents the life of many people and it mind end up being mine as well" way.

Not sure if Ikiru was the best example of this, but it's the closest one I could think of. If we were allowed to put in books, I'd say The Tartar Steppe. That one really brings on the existential despair for me.

Psycho.
Four decades after I saw it I still sometimes have to swing the shower curtain back to check. Granted, sometimes my imagination worries about something in a mask (Halloween-like) but it's still the old "crazy dude swings knife at the vulnerable" that began with Psycho.

All this time I have imagined you as a supple, nubile 17 year old and I was just waiting until you turned 18 to proclaim my desire.

Not a horror film, but the only time I've ever jumped from my seat in a movie theater was during Signs when the alien passes across the screen during the home movie.

Right, I get what Haggis is suggesting with his Ikiru pick. The scariness in the film isn't necessarily fright like Nightmare on Elm Street. It has more of a disquieting quality maybe: "disturbance; uneasiness, anxiety, worry; restlessness, unrest.

That scene was great!

___________________________________

Evil Dead 2013 was very entertaining.

House of a 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects were enjoyable horror films (funny too).


(I can't think of any film which scares me though... :/ Usually, I sit there and wonder about what I'd be doing at that moment in the film. Then I hit this point where the characters are being ridiculously stupid, so I get bored).

I view that film's main character as an example of extremely quick self-development. It's actually happy because without the cancer his life wouldn't have amounted to much.

Those underlined are necessary for individual development anyway, so perhaps some view that prospect as horrifying, but it should be perceived as better...

Surely, I agree that there is a sense of self-development, and there is a sense of happiness at the end for the individual.

The bureaucracy seemingly remains though, which is a bit disheartening.
