Funny I don't think that the Exorcist was that scary I saw it as a kid, when it came out, but it didn't leave that much of a lasting impression with all the hype and talk about it, there are some scenes that are memorable the in general the Exorcist didn't really spook me. I do remember that overall I didn't really watch scary movies, but a movie that could make me jump, build suspense and put a scare into me was a good movie. Maybe because I was expecting the scares from the Exorcist. Two movies that build suspense with out a great deal of special effects are of course Psycho, Hitchcock could creep me out and he did a great job of it with Psycho. Another movie that had a few moments that made me jump was calld When a Stranger Calls, it starred Carol Kane, and Charles During, years later they made a sequel to that movie and I kept thinking great more trash to mess with a good thing. To be honest I liked the sequel even better. When a Stranger Calls Back. While many people feel a need to answer the phone have to know who is on the other end, especially in the days before answering machines and caller id, I never did, I could listen to the phone ring. But every so often if the house is really quiet, the timing is right, the phone will ring and still make me jump, I think it is a throw back from that movie. Same thing when someone unexpectedly comes to the door, to ring the bell there are still times when it freaks me out. Throw back to that movie. Building the suspense with quality acting, good lighting and setting and building a scene rather than a bunch of fancy special effects makes for a much better movie. And gets deep in your head without your even realizing it. Another scary movie mention that should be listed is Willard, but if you have a problem with rats don't watch it.

I totally agree, whether it's for that time or whether it's competing with the movies of today, it's still the scariest one. Unlike today's movies, it didn't concentrate on loud bursts of music, or startling scenes to scare us, but used just the idea and great scenes to scare us to the core.
