Question What's your favorite scary movie?

Being that today is Halloween, I thought I'd ask in my best "Scream" killer voice. "What's your favorite scary movie?"

I usually don't watch scary movies. I'm a big chicken. But the scariest one I have seen is the one with Pinhead. I don't remember the name.

Okay, I was informed that the movie is called Hell Raiser.

I would say my all-time scariest is a classic...the original Halloween. I guess I'm from the old school. The first Scream was pretty scary as well. Others that I would rank up there include The Shining, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (for pure shock value), and Seven (a different kind of scary). And before the Nightmare on Elm Street series dissolved into "what cool catch phrase is Freddy going to use this time," the original kept me awake at night.

Talking

Omen 1 and 2. Amityville Horror 1 and 2. Stir of Echoes and End of days was pretty good. What lies beneath(Harrison Ford), house on haunted hill, the haunting was a bad movie but it had good suspense, Cape Fear(Gotta love Robert Deniro in that), dead again(where the guy is buried alive in the movie), Children of the Corn. BTW, I have walked these flight of steps in Georgetown, D.C. that were rumored to have been filmed in the exorcist movie.

The first time I ever saw "Carrie" my mom and I were watching it on TV around midnight. We were about half asleep, and then it got to the very end (where the hand comes out of the grave) and we both screamed at the top of our lungs. My dad probably thought there was a burgular.

And you know...no matter how many times I see it...I STILL scream when that darn hand comes out. EEEEK!

I'm a big Stephen King fan!!! My all time favorite (Herrrrrre's Johnny!) is The Shining. If you have digital cable, it's running on either one of the Showtimes or Thriller MAX.

Thumbs up

I would have to say the Scream series, and the "Last Summer" ones as well. I'm way too chicken to watch the really scary ones, like The Exorcist or Carrie.

I like the "I know what you did last summer and sequel." Scream was good too, except I made the mistake of seeing Scream 2 before watching the first one. Needless to say, I spent half the movie asking what were they talking about when the first movie was referenced. My date wasn't too happy and since then, anytime we watch a sequel, he asks if I've seen the first one.

It took me a while to get the nerve to watch Carrie, The Shining (something about Jack Nicholson's characted still bothers me), and Friday the 13th without covering my eyes.
I still haven't gather the nerve to see The Exorcist.

Exorcist.
When I saw it, I could have swore my sister's head was going to spin. Freaked me out. Also Battlefield Earth. It's scary that a movie this crappy is made.

Ok, I once saw this really BAD movie, really bad B movie. You could tell it was seriously low budget. (I was in high school--oh goodness) It was about this guy who all through the movie pulled off chicken heads with his mouth. He eventually ended up near a farmhouse--eating chicken heads, and starts tormenting the 'alone' housewife by trying to break in. It was so bad, we laughed through the whole thing instead of screaming. I've never seen a worse movie in my life. It was totally predictable, and you could sooooo tell the chickens weren't real.

lol * speaking of chickens -- Remember "Angel Heart" with Lisa Bonet.

I liked "Prophecy" (the 1st one), "Stigmata", and "End of Days".

X Girl, I liked Phantasm I also. And let's not forget about everybody's favorite bad guy & his twisted sense of humor --- Freddy Krueger.
