I forgot to mention It Follows earlier, that was a great movie in theory it would be easy to escape the ghost or demon or whatever it is that's assuming it can't get on a plane in much the same way that Daleks ( as far as I know) can't climb stairs.

I don't really get scared by horror films, sometimes they lure me in with the occasional jump-scare moment, but that's different than being properly scared.
There were only two films that ever honestly scared me, Threads and The Day After. Threads is the better (meaning: worse) of the two. The context has changed much of course, but still both very scary today. These are the kind of films everyone should watch at least once, especially the so-called leaders.

The Blair Witch Project scarred me when I watched it as a kid, especially with the "it's all real" marketing campaign they pulled. Even nowadays watching it kinda gives me a weird feeling, even though as a film it's a bit boring.

Other than that, as far as adult me goes, The Wailing was pretty unsettling.

I'd probably be okay watching it now, but I remember seeing "Ginger Snaps" as a teenager and it really disturbed me for some reason, even though it was just a B-movie. Even though in the end it actually had a really good point about the culture among young people at the time (the whole admiration of suicide and cutting, that sort of thing). Basically these two sisters were obsessed with death and how terrible life supposedly was, and in the end (spoiler) one of them ends up dying and the other is left with the realization it wasn't what they wanted at all and that life was actually worth living for.

I'm not accustomed to watching horror, I usually stay far away from it because I honestly can't tolerate it. Especially overly gory stuff. I've seen bits and pieces from other horrors before and even without the full context of the film I still hate it.

I much prefer thrillers or suspense than horror. I don't relish being scared or fearful (and least of all grossed out by tons of guts and gore) and I usually get nightmares way too easily from scary stuff. At least suspense/thrillers can play on the imagination and the not knowing. Horror just lays it all out for you to see which feels rather lazy to me (obviously not all of it but modern horror seems to be that way from what I have seen).

I've never been scared by any horror film. One might make me jump or get a few little chills, but that's it. I just don't get scared easily.

Movies with an invisible, omnipresent entity are the scariest for me.
Annabelle, The Conjouring1+2 go into this category.
I got goosebumps when the camera slowly revealed the demon of the annabelle puppet.


Movies that only rely on Jumpscares are garbage though, since it ruins the atmosphere.
