Now though, I think the scariest movie is The Grudge. That movie made the one place I thought was safe, my bed (under the covers), a place where a monster might attack me.


Apparently, The Grudge is an americanized version of a Japanese film "The Juon". I haven't seen it, but I know some folks who have, and they say that the original is even scarier.

I'm going to have to watch the exorcist again. Lots of people rave about it, but I never found it very scary, or interesting or anything really.

What always gets to me is possessed people who are either very young or very old. The Shining has both and is pretty scary the first time you see it. I'm surprised noone has mentioned Psycho. Psycho I and II are both a little frightening.

The one film I remember as being scary is The Survivor. Robert Powell plays a pilot who is the sole survivor of a plane crash. He can't remember anything about it but the people who died come back to haunt him. It's probably rubbish but I saw it at the optimal age of being scared.

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Well, it scared me as a little kid.

I saw "Orca." Just last week, in fact, along with "The Beast," which is about a giant squid.

Another scary flick is "Prince of Darkness." It's a beaut ! It has some freaky effects, a bit of suspense, and even Alice Cooper killing a guy with a bicycle, which doesn't come off nearly as funny as it sounds.

Event Horizon was pretty good, too. It's nice to see horror and sci-fi mixed together like that, which of course leads to my all time pick---> ALIEN.

Salt, you may have heard this, but a new version is being released in July of 2005. Tim Burton and Johnny Dep are teaming up on this one, and that is scary enough if you ask me! In the original movie, Charlie's family scared me as a kid! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367594/

I would bet I'm the only person who saw this movie...Orca. Anyone else? Anyone? The 70's movie with a guy deciding it's a great idea to use a harpoon to bring in a live killer whale to sell to an aquarium? And instead of hitting the male he's aiming for, ends up hitting his pregnant mate, who ends up dead, and the movie...well, is not quite Jaws.

As a kid though, the movie was freaky to me if only because this whale was NOT Shamu, was NOT Free Willy, this orca freaking bit the legs off people. And seeing the female orca's miscarriage is an image that still sticks in my mind.

Yeah. I'm a weird one. Is anyone surprised?


I guess I am too........quite the tearjerker for animal lovers. It was the movie that cliched the fact that I didn't like Richard Harris!

1. Amityville horror by far, if you havent seen it yet its a MUST! And the fact that its based on a true story gives it that extra kick

2. The Ring (part 1) very creatively produced IMO, good scare and definitely gets under the skin!

3. The Grudge, was very good and scary at the start but dragged on a little towards the end

Amityville is NOT a true story. The murders were real but the haunting was a hoax perpetrated by the people that subsequently bought the house and the lawyer for the boy who killed his family. Of course, it makes for a good story, but the fact that these people profited from a tragedy so surreptitiously is a bit ..... unpleasant.

The Ring and The Grudge are both based on Japanese films (I consider the Japanese film industry - both live action and animated - to be the best in the world.) The Ring is "Ringu" and The Grudge is "Ju-on" (Not The Juon). I don't normally get frightened by scary movies, I found the Exorcist ridiculously amusing at age 12, but The Ring and Poltergeist got under my skin. The Grudge was just good fun. Smile
