What is your favorite scary movie?

Mine is Shutter. Have you seen it? I kind of not like the type of scary movies Americans create. They are more on gory stuff. Unlike Asian scary movies, they create scary scenes through our deepest fears. Those that are possible and downright scary. Like the scene in the elevator in The Eye. Or probably the idea that someone is in your shoulder in the shutter. Remember how Samara crawled out of the TV screen. Gosh that really made me go up the chair. What about you? Do you have scenes that are just so unforgettable that until now it is still in your mind?

I'm not a fan of gross horror movies either. Gore is not my thing.

I thinking watching movies is a good pastime and a good source of fun and enjoyment and it is a good way to pass the time when you are bored or have nothing to do,and me and my wife enjoy watching movies even though we do not get to watch them that often since I work a lot and we are often busy on my days off,and when it comes to scary movies we do not watch them,because I wonder who in their right mind would want to watch a scary movie since all they do is try and scare you,and I do not have a favorite scary movie and I have only watched a handful of them,and never plan on watching that many scary movies and I know my wife agrees with me.

I dunno. I guess I just enjoy the idea of being scared. But of course I want to do this with my friends. It would be more fun if a lot of you would shriek altogether. I find it really entertaining if the movie is able to frighten me and my friends. Although at the end of it, all of us would get paranoid or probably so frightened that no one would go to the comfort room alone. We usually laugh at each other's reaction or how we shrieked. Then we would talk about it endlessly. Sometimes we even scare each other by shocking the other one. This is one of our idea of fun. :)

oh yeah definitely. I never get tired having fun with scary movies. Although I seldom watch anymore as it is rather draining. I mean all your energy goes to you shrieking and all. Then your heart get so pumped up on scary scenes.

My favorite scary movie is A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. In fact, I love all of the movies in the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series.

Hey I forgot to include that one. This is also one of those scary gory movies that I enjoyed watching. Have you seen the trailer of the recent Nightmare on Elm Street. I think it is on the gory category already. Most of the scenes are those that involves limbs tearing apart and etc. They are reliving Freddie again. I think nothing beats the first. I was so scared of that idea when that girl who exercises a lot became a cockroach slowly as her limbs become those of a cockroach. That was really gross. I guess the cockroach thing scares me more. I just hate cockroach. They are so dirty. I don't quite like the other series anymore. I find it boring especially the one which Freddie had a rival, Jason the serial killer. It was kind of fiction already. I mean it was far fetch from reality. Unlike the first one, it was creepy to think that you're nightmare is becoming real.

oh yes. That's what makes it even more scary. Because when we are having a nightmare, it seems everything is really real. That concept which they applied in a movie made an appeal which makes it even more scarier. The fact that we can relate makes us vulnerable to that idea of our nightmare becoming real. If I am just a child, I would definitely be so afraid to sleep as I might have a nightmare and everything would just become real.

You know the moment i read SAMARA on your post, i was so scared coz i am all alone here facing the computer.
• Philippines
8 Nov 09
hahaha...probably you are imagining samara crawling out of your monitor right? Hey don't get upset. You should keep on watching that movie so that you could get over with samara. I actually did that. Before I was so afraid to watch The Ring again. I was mortified on how Samara moves. It is like her bones were breaking apart as she walks toward the camera or something. It was really horrific. It was only on my third or fourth time watching that movie that I was able to watch Samara without any nightmares or paranoid idea that she might be at my back. heheh

You just scared me out again, i have tried to watch that movie so many times and still it puts my hair aloft everytime i watched it. Exorcist was scary to and amityville but nothing can compare to the simplicity of this hooooorifying movie, its like a real life, reality or actually true in the sense there was not much film tricks that i was able to relate to the situation.

I personally think the Final Destination movies are scary. I'm not into blood and gore movies. Movies that scare me are movies that mess with my head and make me think of things that could very well happen.

Hi frenzybabe, I have not seen Shutter, I must check that one out. I have seen a lot of horror films over the years and seen so many that I don't really find any scary. If i had to pick, I would say the original Ring films had some scary parts and The Exorcist III had its moments more psychological horror rather than going for cheap shocks.

You should watch it. I like the part where the woman was going down the emergency stairs upside down. It was really freaky.

The Exorcist still scares me. I'm not into the American Horror films, too, because they're more gory these days. It's not actually the plot or movie that'll scare the bejeezus out of you. It's more of the blood and guts that'll get you cringing. Shutter is a good movie, too, and so is the Eye. I like those types of scary movies. Not the ones that have blood and guts spilled within every 15 minutes of it like Saw.

That is so right. Sometimes the plot of the story of these gory movies are actually simple. And usually those who kill are either serial killers or psychological killers. They concentrate more in scaring the viewers through all this tearing apart of body parts and etc. They zoom in even more with all those blood dripping and skin stretching. Gosh I just can't take all those. I too would rather go with these horror films than watching all those guts spilled every other 15 minutes.

I don't like scary movies. So don't watch many. But in my younger days I did. My two favorites from when I was younger was Carrie and the exorcist. Carrie scared em close to the end. and The exorcist scared me for the rest of my life lol Not rally sure those are my favorites but they did leave a lasting impression. I also am scared of werewolves because of all the wee wolf movies.

Carrie..hmm sounds familiar to me. Is this something about a woman who is actually an alien? I'm not really sure. =)

i think it would be Saw im not really sure dont really like scary movies
• Philippines

I really don't like Saw no matter what. I just don't like the idea of him killing all those people. Okay, let's say it was given that those people he is killing are actually sinners. But that doesn't give him the right to judge and impose those heinous punishment just to make his point. I just don't agree with it. He himself should go through with all the ordeal that all his victims went through. He deserve it more. I'm not judging or anything but it just ain't right.

Scream

Oh yeah. But isn't it that it is more of a suspense rather than a scary one. Although I do like scream. The suspense was really killing me. And I was at my feet all the time. I was shrieking endlessly.

Have you seen the original Exorcist, the one from 1973? Well if you have, do you remember the scene in the kitchen where the devil's face pops up on the fan above the oven for about half a second? The first time I saw that I was so scared, probally due to the fact that I was only 9! It's a great movie, though, and if you have never seen it go rent it from Blockbuster or something because it's one of the best scary movies ever made.
• Philippines
8 Nov 09
not really. I hope I could rent that one. I'll try in my local place if they do have that movie. So far the only Exorcist I watch was the one with that girl doing the spider thing. I haven't watch any series of Exorcist after that. I think there is Exorcist 5 already. Was the effects for scary movie that good already in the 1970's? Because for me, what makes a movie scary is how it is able to portray the scary stuff in a way like it is real. I have this local movie which I watch when I was like 9 or 10 as well. I was so frightened at that time although their effects were not that good. When I watch that movie again today, instead of being scared, I was laughing the whole time. Their ghosts and monsters look so funny. It was hilarious. I just kept on laughing till the end of the movie.

Yeah, i have watched it. But i think i haven't been scared by its movie, just was shocked while the ghost came suddenly. Mostly i love gory movies guys, like saw series, train, and asian gory movies like grotesque and invitation only. I love these.

Maybe this is the reason why I didn't pursue a Medical course. I just couldn't take gory stuff such as limbs being torn apart or humans being dissected. I was definitely so mortified with Saw 1. or that part of Saw where this guy was placed in a cross. Then everything started twisting. First his feet then his hands and lastly his head. It was so gross. I haven't tried watching Asian gory movies. Probably I won't have plans to watch them since I know it would definitely be more gory. Another reason that I don't want to watch gory movies is that I could not appreciate the movie well. Since most of the time, I am either hiding in a pillow, or closing my eyes or just turning my back. It would have been better if I had just slept instead of making myself go through all that trauma. :)

the one that is my favorite is jennifer's body. Kind of a cheesy scary movie but i loved it. The scene that remains unforgettable to me is when she seduces the football player and just kills and dismantle him after the make out.
• Philippines
8 Nov 09
really? is that a new one? I actually haven't heard of it but i guess i can check it out. there are a lot of scary movies, those that are directed in the States, which usually showcases s3x as part of the movie. I actually don't get the connection the need to show these scenes as the movie is a scary one and not a love stoy. =) I guess that would fall to a gory movie again since you mentioned a scene of having the girl chopped the guy into pieces, right? I just remembered I do want to check out Drag to Hell. A lot of people have said that it was scary as well. I hope no gory part please.

I guess I just can't take all the gory part. I wasn't scared, I just couldn't take it. It was more of a suspense rather than being a scary one.

I have two favorite scary movies. The first one is an Asian horror, just like you, I also got so scared with "Shutter". I got goosebumps just thinking about it. The second one is "Paranormal Activity." This movie kept me at the edge of my seat, ready to scream my lungs out for every noise, every movement.

I had seen the movie Shutter. I really like the film it really made me scared. I like every part. I believe the movie originated from Thailand. Actually I will gonna share something about my experience while watching the film. The film was unforgettable to me because on the part when the lead actress developed the picture as she was checking on the picture she observed the ghost crawling and it seems going on the wall. During that part we experienced power failure so what had happen, we end up screaming. While there was no light, me and my brother were scared and our parents got scared by our screaming. Me I was imagining the ghost will go outside the television. I will not forget that movie and that is my favorite movie.

Mirros (2008) is the most scarry movie, I have ever seen in my life. I have not seen many but this was the best without any reasons. Where can I find Shutter on internet?

I would have to say the movie that scared me the most was:"Crazy as Hell" were this doctor tries to cure this nut who believes he is the devil. Another one is "Fear of the dark" this is a supernatural thriller that will keep your curled up on the couch. But Elm Street was the scariest to me of all time. The music even gets me before the movie even starts.lol
