    Drag me to Hell. It had me jumping all over the place when I saw it at the cinema.

    The least scary film I've ever watched has to be Paranormal Activity. I nearly fell asleep watching it.

    Paranormal activity's the only one that's remotely scary, since it takes place in a believable setting and one I can relate to. I am not scared by anything set over 30 years ago, partly because if it was made back then it will have awful special effects, and partly because I just end up laughing at most of it.

    Are you talking about the Groke? I can't post pictures atm, but that sh*t gave me nightmares for weeks.


    To a lesser degree, yeah, but was mostly thinking about Hattifatteners.

    Me and my GF at the time, who scares easily, both found Paranormal Activity funny. It's not remotely scary. It's the kinda 'horror' film that gets over hyped by the general film going public and that's about it.

    And given your statement regarding special effects, your opinion is basically objectively wrong.

    I'm not trying to sound like some immune, macho-man but I've watched so many horror films/thrillers films that they rarely scare me at all now..

    When I was younger I used to be scared of a bit in The Exorcist and I always used to have nightmares of Jason Voorhees, Freddie Kruegor and Mike Myers chasing me around a maze and I always had a hoover as a weapon for some reason..

    I would go with...

    Rosemary's Baby (especially the last 15 mins)
    The Shining (Jack Nicholson...enough said)
    Rec (The last bit was freaky deaky!)
    Misery (crazy, scary lady!)

    There is more but I cant think of any. What are yours?
    Rec was a good'un. The sequel was a let down though - got quite predictable. Have you seen the third?

    Insidious wasn't particularly scary as a whole, but it does have a few jumpy parts. This one still gets me once in a while.

    Anyone seen Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Wererabbit? I think they banned it in the UK but you can still find it on some Russian Video-Stream Sites..

    Yeah I'd agree, The Strangers was most probably the last 'scary' film I watched. The music was creepy as hell! Just the way they did it in general, like the knocking on the door etc..

    I was told "The Exorcist" was a scary film....... and my mother particularly said the head-spinning part was most scary, but I laughed out during that part of the movie.
    Agreed, I laughed through pretty much the whole film APART from the spider walk down the stairs. Seriously freaky **** right there, that moment's still with me.

    Last 10 mins of REC is very intense.

    Insidious absolutely terrified me mainly because the kid gets haunted when sleeping.
    The exorcist was pretty scary.
    The Ring was pretty scary as well.

    I'm quite the scaredy cat at movies :P

    The Exorcist.

    After being desensitised by gratuitous gorno-style horror, 'The Exorcist' remains the only film that has the ability to phase me these days.

    It's probably pathetic but I still can't get through the Grudge films,despite knowing exactly whats in them.The Serbian Film freaked me out a lot.I saw http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0384806/ when I was 15 and it really scared me,especially as it is based on truth and the house still exists in America.And the whole 'catch em kill em' mantra was stuck in my head for ages afterwards.Not especially great late at night when your brain seems to be unable to do anything but replay those scenes.I haven't seen the Ring but apparently it's of a similar vein to the Grudge.

    When I was 5 (all thanks to my then teenaged uncle) I sat through about half an hour of the original "Nightmare on Elm Street." I slept in my parents bed for years afterwards!

    Misery. That woman is frightening.

    As for the hype over the Exorcist, what a load of bull. I just don't see it myself, not scary at all. Slashers don't bother me either, I find the psychological/ supernatural things more creepy.
