- THE RING: The scariest movie iv ever seen, i love it. The whole feel and look of the film was very scarey, the ending was a bit disturbing as well.

- THE 6TH SENSE: Very freaky, not nightmare scarey though, but feels very cold and eerie ( spelling? )

- THE EXORCIST: Its a bit disturbing, although i can laugh at a few things too......but its overall a pretty evil feeling film.

- SIGNS: I dont think this was "SCAREY"....but it was a bit freaky, the whole concept of the film was freaky...especially when they are trapped in their basement and you can hear the Aliens breaking in.

So how about the rest of you? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

Definatley The Ring, followed very closely by The Exorcist. The Ring still had me afraid of my television going on at night. With my imagination and that movie I could easily give myself a heart attack during the night. :eek:

Signs definitely freaked me out too the first time I saw it. I didn't like the ending very much though.... :-\

When they first came out Scream and Scream 2 scared me soo much! I had just seen Scream when I watched Scream 2. And I remembered the closet scene in Scream when I realized our hall closet was open...... lol Let's say I panicked and grabbed the largest knife I could find! lol ;)

Dark Asylum :eek: If you've ever seen it, you'll know how scary and bizarre it is!

Slasher movies don't tend to scare me, it's the suspenseful ones that really get to me.

I never saw enough of Silence of the Lambs to be really scared of it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I like a lot scary movies and none has freaked me out, but the best one I think its the Ring, but I liked a lot "The Others" thats a very suspense movie. Id say those two are the best ones.

The Ring - This was very jumpy and I kept thinking something was going to happen, but near the end when the girl climbed out of the well and out of the tv, that had my heart going like mad!

Cradle Of Fear - This was more sick than scarey. Not many people would have seen this or even heard of it because you cant get it in shops (apparently) But the way everyone was killed was really sick, and Dani had me terrified to be alone in the dark for weeks!

Signs - The aliens scared me like hell! Like Croft28 said, when you can hear them breaking into the house, that was scarey! And when you knew they were there you just couldnt see them! *shudder* and when the alien walks past that window at the kids party, that made me jump really bad!!!

For me it would be The Shining.

In my opinion he only truly scary film. It's just the concept of being in an isolated, empty hotel in the middle of nowhere, snowed-in, where these horrible murders happened a long time ago...creepy. And the Room 237 thing...don't go in there...

Stanley knows how to direct a film.

I just cant get into horror...

although I did find The Blair Witch Project a bit un-nerving

17-06-03, 08:50
Yeah i agree with 'The Croft Woman' the whole silence/isolation of Signs was freaky, i just imagine my self in that situation and i get chills. Like the fact that the aliens knew they were inside....just the thought of someone a floor above you trying to find you is scarey.
The bit where the boy is standing in front of the rail thinig in the basement and that hand grabs him was scarey and YES the kids party scene, how freaky!!!!!

The Shining is good, that was freaky too!!!!! i love scarey movies!!!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Oh yeah i forgot about Blair Witch, that scared the **** out of me, the way it was shot with a home camera made it seem VERY real.

My favourite horror movies are:

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Friday the 13th

Jeepers Creepers

Blair Witch Project would have been better if I'd seen it before it was discovered as a hoax.

Incidentally, last summer, when staggering home from the pub, a mate of mine let it slip that his nephew and couple of friends were camping in a wood near to my house.

It was an opportunity not to be missed, so we went down there and built a pile of stones outside the door of the tent with a dead bird on top.

then we started banging stones together, snapping twigs and throwing large rocks into the stream...

oh what fun...

Yeah, the hoax part of Blair Witch was a good idea they had. If i thought it was real while watching it i think i would have had a heart attack, but i still went into the cinema just enjoying it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

The scariest movie I seen was Chucky or Childs Play, whatever its called. But then agin I saw it when I was seven years old so thats probably why. lol Since then I haven't seen any movie that has scared the hell out of me. I don't know why people think The Ring is scary. I did not find that movie scary at all. I jumped twice during the movie and that was only because the girl behind me screamed really loud during parts that weren't "scary". lol

You thought the Blair Witch Project was actually real? lol I think I saw the chick from it interviewed on some talk show back when it first came out, so that let me know it wasn't real. ;)

Knowing it was fake, it still scared the daylights out of me! :eek: I live right by a two acre woods, 40 acres of field right behind my house (with another 20 acres of woods at least behind the field) and another 40 acre field west of my house. So try watching this movie at midnight and living around where I'm at! lol Oh yeah, it was right around Halloween too, so a few days before Halloween, some in this area thought it'd be funny to make a bunch of those freaky stick ppl and hang them from trees at the end of my road......

I would have to say: THE THING- the 1980's version with kurt russel.
X-FILES the movie- very scary with the bacteria that turns humans into a alien vessel.
LEVIATHON- a movie that is about a top sercert russian boat that had a substance that turns humans into this underwater thing very scary.
SPHERE- movie based on Micheal Crhiton book
EVENT HORIZON http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

Stanley knows how to direct a film.Good choice. I forgot about that one. It's one of those movies that is scarey because it makes us wonder how we would react under the same circumstances. Almost everyone knows what cabin fever is like.

Signs & Silence of The Lambs are about the only "scary" movies i've seen. Signs was good, because it wasn't about aliens at all, it was about just that Signs, but it also had great suspense, which you don't find much of these days. Like the various scenes when you think you are going to see some being flash by but nothing happens, then when you are least expecting BAM it happens.

Of course my all time favorite scary movies was Scary Movie & Scary Movie 2....LOL :D :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ;)

For me it would be the first Alien. I still have a very hard time going through the expectoration scene at the beginning of the movie!

Croft 28, I totally agree with u but I would add another movie to the list...Resident Evil!
It was very cool, not very scary though but definitively the scariest I've ever seen!
Well, I'm not an easy person to be scared!!

:eek: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif He he he, yeah i loved the Resident Evil movie, but i dont think it was scarey, i mean some scenes were freaky, but overall i just enjoyed as an action film rather than a horror. The scares in that are mild.

Grizzly - I laughed so much I got thrown out of the cinema. Well, what do you expect, waving a silly stuffed bear claw from the side of the camera to simulate a crazed grizzly?

Actually, there was a movie that disturbed me so much I turned the telly off and didn't watch the end. It was called 'A Killer in the Family' and starred Robert Mitchum. Mitchum is one hell of an actor.

Another memorable film along these lines would have to be The Hitcher starring Rutger Hauer (sp?).

.Was this movie fairly old or is this a new re-make? I saw a similar film quite a few years ago called "Kodiak" What a hoot. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

it's an ancient movie, made back in the 70s. It would probably be even more ridiculous watching it now.

I'd bet The Hitcher would still hold it's own though. Quite a movie.

I liked Event horizon, I am not easily scared although the exorcist was a good one I watched that when I was about 7 or 8 originally :)I still think the scariest film appart from The Spice Girls :eek: has to be the sound of music, that Julie Andrews is one scarey lady,...the hills are alive...brrrrrr http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif
