Me too! I saw an update "where are they now" on VH-1 that showed those spooky twins.

And the book - even scarier!

I also like:

Silver Bullet
Needful Things
Pet Sematary 1
Hellraiser 1&2

Nightmare on Elm Street is a classic, IMO, even though it's not that old. (I saw it when I was a senior in high school so it can't be old, right? Right? RIGHT?????)

Even though it's not scary per se, I love "Hocus Pocus".

The only scary movie that I like is "The Blair Witch Project." And that's probably because it could easily happen in here in WV. We've got a lot of woods, and we've got a lot of creepy, strange people. And plenty of places to hide bodies.

Salem's Lot scared the crap out of me. I still haven't watched the entire original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I like "Signs" which scared me so much I could only see it once-but I've been working up the courage to watch it again since it's almost Halloween. The original "Poltergiest" gets me too-to this day I can't watch it.

The Shining and The Ring.

Plus, the original Scream is always fun to watch around Halloween.

I'll go with The Ring.

The Exorcist III has some unsettling visuals. William Peter Blatty who wrote the original Exorcist wrote and directed this third film. Blatty uses some unusual scare tactics. There is a scene in a church with a quick shot of a statue of Christ. A moment later the same statue is shown again, but only for a second and it looks like the Joker from Batman with a crazy madhouse grin. While it looses something being written out here it is truly frightening.

I do like a good movie scare, but I doubt I would watch Exorcist III again. Nightmares you know.

Salem's Lot is too scary for me to watch. When it first came out, I was with a bunch of friends playing cards while it was on. I had to sit with my back to the tv. The standing joke now when it comes on tv is for some smartass to call me up and say "Wanna play cards tonight?"

I don't like truly scary movies but I do like these 3 Disney movies:

Mr. Boogedy
Bride of Boogedy
Child of Glass (except for the horrendous fake Southern accents)

I liked that movie too.

Other than that... I'm not really into scary movies. I'll watch Halloween-esque comedies though.

Ya'll are making me want to watch "Salem's Lot". Haha. And I still haven't seen the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" but I want to. I saw the remake in the theater and spent about half of it with my hands over my eyes (but always peeking through the fingers of course).

The Haunting---it's all in your head.....and that's too creepy (or maybe it's just me)(check out the original from 1963)

Psycho---the original, of course
