    I'd have to say The Orphanage (El Orfanato), purely because I didn't think a film with it's age rating would be like that at all, very good film though. Most 'scary' films nowadays are far too predictable, or just filled with shock value such as 'A Serbian Film' and 'The Human Centipede'.

    edit: Also, The Strangers is very good for a jumpy type scary movie.
    I've always wanted to watch A Serbian Film but apparently it's very disturbed

    I've watched a lot of horror films and it's very rare that I get scared. I would say the two that scared me the most (although I was young at the time) were the Exorcist and the Texas Chainsaw Massacare (the original version, I don't rate the re-make).

    In terms of more recent films I found 'The Strangers' and 'Them' (also known as ILS) quite scary, with the latter being the scariest.

    I've literally just come back from the cinema after watching 'Dark Skies' and that's one of the best horror films I've seen in a while. Made me jump in 2 or 3 places and I was on the edge of my seat throughout anticipating what was going to happen next.

    I was about 8 when I watched The Ring, and that scared the crap out of me.
    Sinister is very scary in my opinion.
    I was about 8 when I watched the Blair Witch Project and my Dad told me it was a true story.

    And recently: 'Mama'.

    Anything with creepy kids scares the crap out of me.

    When I was a kid, The Ring, for sure.

    But now that I'm a bit of a horror movie buff I'd have to say either [REC] (first film to ever give me an almost sleepless night) or Sinister. Though I recently watched Sinister on DVD and it was a tad disappointing, in the cinema it was utterly traumatisingly terrifying.

    I'm permanently confused as to how someone can be scared by something like Saw or Hostel though, or indeed any gory horror film. They're completely inferior to more psychological horrors.

    The Woman in Black and the Paranormal Activity films for me.

    But then I have to admit that I don't have a very strong head when it comes to films and can get scared fairly easily

    Oh my god please don't watch it, it's horrendous!! I thought the same... But you actually do not want to see it, you just think you do but if you really knew what happened you would change your mind! I had to run to the toilet at the end because I thought I was going to be physically sick afterwards, and I find watching films like Saw dead easy (Probably shouldn't have eaten dairy milk Oreo whilst watching it I guess).

    I literally can't find any films that really scare me anymore. I used to think Amytville Horror (remake) and the Grudge 2 were terrifying when they first came out but have watched them since and hardly jumped! Paranormal activity 2 is probably the last scary film I watched which prevented me from sleeping easy afterwards.

    The scariest film I have ever seen is MEGAN IS MISSING. Just thinking of those last 20 minutes just horrifies me. Then it would have to be the scene in hostel where the woman baths in the blood of the woman above, after her dicing her up, yum yum!!

    Is that where the camera was spun about 720 degrees before it jumped out? The film was pretty scary, but that scene was so ridiculous I was laughing haha.

    Scariest is probably the Orphanage for me!

    Well my one isn't a film, but.....

    Mexican Cartels decapitating a rival gang with axes was pretty brutal.
    And then hacking their bodies to pieces, again with the axe.
