What are y'all's favorites?
Not many movies are scary to me anymore once I leave the theatre, but Insidious had me pretty creeped out when I watched it.
Alien is the best overall to me though.
Why So Serious?
Yeah the ending was a bit far-fetched to say the least, but the scares, especially for a pg-13, are pretty great.
I agree, too, different tastes when it comes to horror. Me personally, I don't go for the nasty gory stuff, I like suspense and good scares. Really looking forward to the new movie coming out: sinister. It looks promising.
I'm a big fan of Wrong Turn 4 and Sharktopus.
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Yeah that V/H/S looks mildly intriguing. Could be a great new idea or bust, IMO.
The PA movies have done a good job of finding ways to continue the story that made sense, but I agree, those movies have died out significantly, although they do have a new director on board for 4 so maybe it will be alright?
Sinister just looks completely bad ass, plus it has Ethan hawke, who is one of the best when it comes to very intense roles.
In all seriousness though, I think the scariest movies for me of all time was The Ring. Looking back on it, not too bad now, but for being my first scary movie, absolutely scared the shit out of me.
Also Pet Semetary was pretty creepy. I laughed all throughout the P/A movies. My definition of scary aren't the cheap thrills that might make you jump that seem to accompany the majority of movies we see today (P/A, Saw). Sure, they are entertaining, but they don't play with your head all that much or they put the twist right in front of you/what you should be scared of (Signs). I think you look at Alfred Hitchcock or Stephen King and those guys really knew how to write a story. It's too bad the special effects are so laughable when watching those movies that now they aren't very scary. Trying to work up the courage to watch Psycho or The Exorcism.
Insidioust looked cheesy at first, but it seems to be pretty impressive now that I'm watching it. Not just selling out for the typical horror of Saw where they are making you jump and actually try to develop a story.
This is one of the scariest scenes for me though

For me, the scene in insidious where the grandmother is describing her dream is pretty damn scary. It made me jump the first time more than anything I can remember in a scary movie.
I would also say the part in Signs where they are showing the video from the Hispanic kids party, is VERY disturbing and scared the sh*t out of me when I watched it as a little boy. I did not sleep well for a week at least.
Yeah on top of that, the bathtub scene from the shining made me shut that movie down. Too much overload for my 13 year old brain
As bad as it is for me to say this, I have never seen the shining, but I really want to. Add it to the list of movies I HAVE to watch before all is said and done.
Just finished Insidious. Thought it was pretty scary, but the ending was predictable. Demon wasn't too scary, but they showed him too much in the previews.
To me, the demons scare factor does not come from his looks but more from his actions, which makes it all the more enjoyable. Bet that song he is always listening to will successfully creep you out anytime you hear it again.
The scariest and must intense scene in Insidious imo, was when someone broke into their house from the inside and all the events that followed.
Best scenes in a LONG time.
I miss the old Hellraiser movie with pinhead. I thought the original halloween was awesome!
if you havent seen the Orphanage please do so...
The movie is in spanish but does come with subtitles.. its from the same director who did Pan's Labrynth.
Signs did more to scare me than anything has in a long time. IMO, its underrated. The jumpy/jerky scary movie doesn't do anything to scare me. As a rule of thumb, anything PG-13 horror, is a disgrace. The premise of The Strangers was scaryish. The execution, not so much.
I thought the lady in black was really good. Exorcism of Emily rose was awesome.
The skeleton key was good.
Cabin in the woods was funny/corny/intense I don't know why but some good entertainment
This. F that movie
Rudy. Still have nightmares
As far as recent ones go, I know a ton of people who loved Cabin in the Woods.

Premise good,I could give you a list of problems, with it though.
mm im gonna say the part in signs were mel was putting his little girl to bed and he looked out his window and saw a dark figure standing on his barn roof. Scared the SH!T out of me. Didnt sleep good for a while.
The movie that has absolutely freaked me out though lately was the movie The Fourth Kind. yikes
Children of the corn

Yeah I saw that one too, very creepy.
I feel like PA didn't have a story at first, then it had a story (that I was/am very interested in), and now that story is being butchered by the studio. Yay capitalism.
