Name any films that petrified you when you were younger.

Once I was watching a programme on TV, and the face of THE EXORCIST appeared. I almost screamed and hid under the duvet for several minutes. I was scared to come back out. Now, I just find that film funny.

It's much easier to be frightened by a film when you're a child I think. No films could frightne me today but anyway when I was younger the only things on TV I can remember being frightned by was the series Night Gallery presentd by Rod Serling , and the films The Exorcist and The Omen. By the time Alien appeared I was a cynical 9 year old ;)

'The Sword and the Sorcerer' ('it's a bit like Labyrinth' my arse... thanks, Mum, I had nightmares for *weeks* after seeing that woman get her heart ripped out by telekinesis!)

The Thing - especially that bit when that blokes chest turns into a huge maw and bites the other guys arms off! (However, this is now one of my favouritest movies ever in the world ever ever).

And, err, Gremlins. I wasn't very good with horror as a kid!

Believe me, it's very silly. I doubt it would scare you now...most of the special effects constituted bunnies with tomato sauce on their chops! ;)

There is also another one like it, except with giant rats. haha. Yeah they're silly but back then.... :P

Actually films never scared me when I was little. I was immune to horror movies.

Now that I am older the opposite is true. I'm more of a scaredy cat every minute I grow older ;)
Well, actually I think it's because when I was little I was stupid and had no idea what the heck was going on in the movies, and if you can't understand, how can you be scared? Haha =):tea:

Raider of the Lost Ark. Not the whole movie, just the parts where dead bodies were having a role.

You ever read/seen Macbeth? The scene where Macduff's castle is being ransacked and its inhabitants slaughtered. We were shown it in English when doing the play. The effects were terrible - tomato sauce splattered everywhere, and naked actresses lying around (it was the Playboy version) - and I couldn't help laughing. The teacher later pointed out that everyone except one girl who would remain un-named had been watching the scene in horror. Bad time for "special" effects to tickle my sides. :vlol:

I have to say that The Shining was well directed and quite chiling in parts but the lines

"Mr Grady you *were* the caretaker here. You chopped your wife and daughters into little bits then you blew you brains out"
"That's odd sir I have no recollection of that at all"

always seemed to me like something Monty Python might reject as too silly.

Macbeth- is that the 1971 Roman Polanski directed version you mean?

Celephais: That's the one. You seen it? The teacher deliberately showed us the Witches' Coven scene... The entire top English section is scarred for life now.

Wow, they still show that film to classes? Yeah our class saw it when I was studying English in 1985. I actually thought it was well done, but the awkward Shakesperian way of speaking never seemed totally natural to me when converted to the screen. But I suppose if they'd talked in a more modern way then it wouldn't be Shakespeare. Is that a Catch 22? :whi:

Geck-o-Lizard
15-04-06, 23:05
Fairly recently there was a short series of modernised versions of some of Shakespeare's plays on the TV - I saw Macbeth and Taming the Shrew (which was hilarious), skipped Romeo and Juliette and the other two that were on. Brilliant adaptations I thought, all updated into modern times with modern language and characters. So no, no Catch 22. :D
