With Halloween coming a lot of horror movies are on T.V. This got me to thinking of the best horror movie ever made? I think I would say "Devils Rejects" or the "Nightmare on Elm St." movies. I like the Elm street movies because each movie adds a little more background into Freddy. I think he is a scary character, and funny to boot. What do you think the best horror movie of all times is?

If you want a true horror movie.... go back a few years. Try the ORIGINAL Halloween or The Exorcist. Halloween isn't scary, but with a movie that had such a small budget, it has grossed a lot of money these past 30 years. Of course, there's always the classic The Exorcist. That was the first movie that ever scared me. I was raised on horror movies (seeing my first at age 5) and the first horror movie I was was Poltergeist. It didn't scare me. The Exorcist did. That has to say something.

Poltergeist was the first horror movie I remember seeing as well. It didn't scare me, but it gave me new ammo to scare my brother, he was so scared LOL

The Amityville horror scared the you know what out of me, but I have not seen it in years, so I don't know if it would still have the same effect now. I also think the original Nightmare on Elm Street was really scary. Poltergiest was also pretty frightening as well.

For me, it would be "The Ring" (the first one). I watched it about 6 years ago and it scared me silly, especially since I have a 17" computer screen in my room (which I figured would be large enough for her to climb through lol). I couldn't sleep well for weeks (probably also because I don't take horror moview very well in general). I don't want to ruin it for people who haven't seen it yet so I'll just say that I wasn't expecting that ending since I thought it was over with the bones part. So when it hit me, it hit pretty hard.
