Hmm.

#1) The Hostel movies. Not because they were really scary (no surprises), but because of the fact that that truly could happen to anyone with the number of sick f***s in the world.

#2) Probably the Shining. But when I was real little. All I remember is the naked nasty old lady in the bathtub. The rest of the movie wasn't that creepy..just really long and weird.

#3) The original Halloween. This is probably the first true "horror" movie on the list so far. Def. one of my favs.

#4) Se7en. Just downright creepy. One of the original "gore" movies IMHO. I think there are probably a lot of movies influenced by that. Such as Saw and Hostel and whatnot.

That's about it. Scary movies don't do much for me. I though Blair Witch was stupid. People running around the forest getting creeped out by their own imagination. I've done that with friends...exploring abandoned buildings and all that stuff, and I'd say it was fun and exhilarating because of the darkness and unfamiliarity, but it wasn't horrifying or intensely scary. Jeepers Creepers was ridiculous, and the Saw movies have gone down the drain. The only one that creeped me out was the second one for some reason. But it didn't "scare" me. More or less just the gory effects. Friday the 13th never appealed to me, either. That's about all I can think of now.

(edit: yay 1500 posts )

Lots of movies don't 'scare' me per se, but the sudden noises accompanied by camera switches/zombies smashing into windows startle me.

Same here. It takes a LOT to scare me, but hardly nothing at all to "startle" me, like you said. This could be in ANY kind of movie...not just scary ones.

Thank you. Haha. Don't much care about my post count though, but thought it was a pretty good accomplishment since I feel like I've generally helped and not annoyed (or tried posting as much as I can) since I've been here.

I seen that it was pretty good. The only part I thought was scary is I have some friends who would do that sort of thing. Good thing I am friends with them.


Zombie movies don't really scare me, of course we have been over the issue of no movie scaring me... But yeah I don't know. I think it's because of the not being it could happen. I definitely think the strangers had a higher of a scare factor to it then any zombie movie.
