Scariest Movies

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite genres to watch is scary movies. Personally I like paranormal and extraterrestrial movies more than suspense/slasher/gore type. The big problem I have noticed with the genre is that there are very few "really good" movies and there are quite a lot of "just ok" ones..... and an absolute metric shit ton of ones that aren't worth watching more than 5 minutes into. Too many are relying on the whole blair witch thing where it looks like it's filmed by amateurs on a shaky home video camera.

 

The above isn't intended to sway anyone from posting what they like; it's just my personal preference.

 

So, what are your scariest movies, old or new? The kind that give you nightmares.

I'm def interested in finding an actually scary movie to watch. so much shit today is reliant on jump-scares which are a real cop-out, and while they have their place, if those are the only scary moments in the "horror movie" its a failure.

 

I don't think I've had a nightmare from a film since I was in junior high, would love to find one.

 

One of my favorites was Del Toro's "Orphanage." No nightmares, but a solid film through and through

Me and my girlfriend visited the Winchester Mystery House a few months ago during opening weekend of the "extended tour" (which showcased rooms that were previously closed to the public for almost 100 years)....cost us a little over $100 for the both of us to take the tour but worth every penny...

 

i remember the tour guide mentioning something about how they are coming out with a movie about the Winchester Mystery House soon and they had filmed there...i thought it would be more of a historical movie but it turns out its a horror film about the Mansion...saw the trailer for the first time last night...dont know how i feel about this...

I've also visited the Winchester house tour so it might be interesting to see because some of it was filmed there. The trailer looks like the movie will be in perspective of Sarah. Maybe what she saw and most importantly believed was there. Then throw in a bunch of startling visual and audio effects.

The Thing.

 

The basics of the scenario as well as the way the alien manifest itself did it for me when I was 13. As did Hellraiser when I was about 12 and somewhat psychotropically tropiced.
