    I saw a bit of that Paranormal Activity movie (the first one). That kind of freaked me out.

    The Exorcist - couldn't sleep for days when I saw this when I was a kid.
    Rosemary's Baby.

    I've forever been a horror fan.
    Many are just visual and fail to hit the spot.
    One that caught me as memorable though, would be the 1982 remake of "The Thing", with Kurt Russel.

    The Saw and Hostel movies aren't scary, they're just gross. I love horror flicks, but the torture porn trend that's in vogue now is just stupid. I prefer the good old fashioned scares. Exorcist is still scary even after seeing it many times.

    Some of my favorites that I thought were actually scary:

    The Ring
    Ju-On (never saw the American version)
    Banshee Chapter
    Event Horizon
    Poltergeist (I was a kid)

    I don't know the scariest film. But I know who the worst speller is. Why can't you just type the word correctly ? Why do you feel the need to act 14 years old and deliberately misspell it ?

    Just finished You're Next. Definitely not the scariest, but it was worth a watch. My CEO's son (Joe Swanberg) had a pretty big role and was pretty funny as the "comedic relief" part.

    I agree. I don't want to want to be grossed out when watching horror flicks. I understand that it comes with the genre, but to be gross just to be gross isn't what I'm into. My three "go to" horror flicks are Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Exorcist.

    What's worse is all the jump-scares in movies that are trendy lately. Boring.
    I equate it to slipping on a banana peel for a laugh. Dumb & cheap.

    Clive Barker called Hostel "A vulgar piece of s**t."

    Intellectual terror/horror is hard to come by these days. A movie that gets into your head and scares you deep down? Honestly, idk.

    PS I'm going to Scar-a-Con next weekend with a Pinhead picture I made to get signed by Doug Bradley.
    I'll report back with any good findings.

    Watch the directors cut of Caligvla and then listen to the Scott Walker/Sunn O))) album. Tell me how you sleep that night.

    Clive is penning the reboot as we speak, and will hopefully be directing it also.

    He's also writing the follow up movie that will kill Pinhead for good and usher in a new Hellraiser "Priest of Hell" era for a new generation.

    wak, that movie was beyond dark. I love Barker;his Books of Blood are supreme. I trust Clive,he is no hack. Rawhead Rex is a lot of fun.

    Man! A topic I know!

    If you're talking the remake with American lead actors (but the same supporting cast, director, etc. as the Japanese original) then I'd agree. It has merit. One of the few films where I don't think the original was better. Different cultures have different "hot buttons" and the Japanese original (Ju-On?) was pushing the wrong ones for a US market. At least for me.

    Some worth consideration:
    House of 1000 corpses
    The Devil's Rejects (because there are people out there like that)
    Hostel (1 is enough) - more snuff/torture than scary
    Hellraiser/Hellbound (but not the others)

    Anything from Hitchcock can get into your brain. Nicholson/Kubrick "The Shining" is up there too for get-in-your-head horror.

    Eraserhead is creepy, weird, and disturbing. Scary? Not so much

    The one I never see on anyone's list that absolutely gets everyone who I've ever shown it to is "Audition" (1999 Japanese movie from director Takashi Miike).

    For the flip side of the coin, Peter Jackson did a send up of horror movies that, if you know the genre will have you smiling (maybe even laughing) at the stereotypes used, musical score, and nearly everything else. "Dead Alive" (1999) even includes some bits of stop motion for a truly classic feel.

    The "Paranormal Activity" franchise was boring and only included one good scene in each movie; padded with filler to make it anything more than a class project. The whole "found footage" craze was a waste of time IMO.

    What I'd really like to see is "Stinger" (Robert McCammon) made into a movie. That book creeped me out massively. I can't recommend it enough.

    When i was like 7-8 my dad took me to see jaws and the part where hooper goes down to check the hull of the boat and the dudes head rolls into the opening the visual of the dead guys face and that shrill sound i about crapped my pants. Back then the theaters were really dark and that may of been my first scary movie.

    Then later the first few minutes of The Ring when they zoomed in on that girl in the closet and again the shrill sound at the same time they show a horrible image got me. I wasnt expecting it so soon.

    There was a few parts in The Thing i really liked, the Howling, Nightmare on elm street, Haloween, The Fog are a few.

    Why do you feel the need to belittle him?

    I still find myself being out of sync with my right and left hand and i think this is why i cant play fast. My left hand is faster then my right hand when it comes to typing. My left hand is far ahead of my right when it comes to typing and i type things wrong all the time specially "the"

    IMO a few words periods or commas are fine the part i cant stand is when i see this kinda talk "ohEemgeE wAht waSz dAt fO rEalSz tho wAht tHe gUy underneath meeh sed"

    Not really, more suspense than anything else.
