I think the original Halloween is super scary I first saw it when I was 17 at the movie theater and every Halloween I always watch it.
A child being that evil is really creepy.
tied with The Shining
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
It's a pure psycho-thriller. It was scary the first time I watched it,the second time and the last time. there's no whirring buzz saws or muzzled serial killers, it comes at you on a whole different level-- the movie doesn't get in your face and scare you, it gets in your head and terrifies you.
I was up later than I was supposed to be and accidently saw a preview of The Shining. From that time on as a child the thing I was most afraid of was Jack Nicholson coming out from under my bed with an ax. I did see the whole movie as an adult and I still don't think any other movie comes close. If you really want to creep me out just come up behind me and say "redrum."
I will not wear a veil in my wedding because of the scene with the girl in the white dress that when unveiled appears as an old woman.
In the Mouth of Madness
The scene where the lead character is driving, he turns his head to look at an old man going by on a bicyle then turns around to find that the man is right in front of his and he is about to hit him made me jump out of my seat.
It is just creepy.
Those Aliens are taking over. I could go on and on about this movie.
Dark and intense movie, the most frightining thing I have ever seen.
Halloween (The Original)
That mask is what gets me.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original)
This movie scared the hell out of me when I was a child. It's shot in this documentary home grainy cam style that gives it the feel of a snuff film. I didn't realize this movie was based on the murders of Ed Gein until much later, which made it even creepier (Pyscho was the other Ed Gein based film). How many times can you watch the silhouette of a person being tossed on a meat-hook before you start having nightmares about it? Once. That's all it takes.
The Silence of the Lambs
Even though I know this particular story is fiction the reality that there are people out there similar to Hannibal Lecter gets to me.
The music alone does it for me.
Birds are everywhere. They could always just swoop down.
A Clockwork Orange
This movie sticks with you.
I snuck into this movie when I was quite young and I did not want to be anywhere alone for weeks.
It's gross and creepy.
It made me scared to go in the water.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre(original)
It freaked me out.
When Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly's characters are in jeopardy you really feel for them.
The murder scene
Stephen King's The Shining (mini series)
The whole premise of keeping the dead mother.
The Green Slime
I was very young when I saw it and it scared the heck out of me.
The fact that it was not special effects ridden. It was the story that scared people.
I watched as a child and it still scares me to this day.
I had read the book twice and it still scared me to death.
Rutger Hauer in the Hitcher-----ooooooohhhhh!
Because she is so scary looking.
The Fog (the original)
The Thing (the original)
The Sixth Sense
Because you don't anticipate what is going to happen and what the dead people look like.
Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory
Those oompa loompas are scary.
Because it was just a great ghost story with no blood or gore. Just plain scary!
American Werewolf in London
She gets you in the dark.
Dark Night of the Scarecrow
Wait Until Dark & Play Misty For Me
Both movies have suspense and are scary, not just gore.
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
It was absolutely terrifying when I was a child but I could hardly wait for it to come on television.
Because it was very realistic.
Jo Ann Holliman
It deals with real animals.
Because Jack Nicholson was totally crazy!
The Last House on the Left
Because it could really happen.<
