Last horror movie that scared you

I liked the Others and Shutter.

The Haunting in Connecticut got bad reviews but I thought it was really good.

There's old-school scary and today's "scary" which is far too often confused with bloody. Make a slasher movie and theey call it scary.

For real, I saw the premier of "The Exorcist" in Hollywood in 1973. At the time, nothing had ever been done even close to that movie.

To prove your point. I STILL have not watched that film.

I thought Insidious was scary. I had night terrors as a kid so to me this movie was frightening.

for some reason that movie scared me too. I can't really think of any other movies that actually scared me and I watch scary movies all the time.

The Strangers is very disturbing, I went out and bought a gun after watching this.

Best stuff these days seems to come out of Japan or be remade from a Japanese film (The Ring, The Grudge, Audition, etc).

Contagion was a very well-done 'plague' movie.

Not sure what you meant.... The Exorcist is nowhere close to a slasher movie. Only one person dies in the entire movie if I remember.

The Exorcist being a very scary movie is what I mean. I have yet to see it because it's that good. William Friedkin(sp) is one of the best.

I don't get scared so much but the last movie that really disturbed me was Chained. Vincent D'Onofrio as a very understated and even subdued serial killer. Very tense, very uncomfortable.

Ill echo The Strangers as well. Again just a very tense movie.

I don't get freaked out over monsters or the supernatural, "normal" people doing seemingly inhumane things for inexplicable reasons? That poo freaks me out. Im not worried that some alien is going to rip my chest open, I am worried that some nutcase might break into my home and torture my family.

I'll say the first Saw, when I saw it in theaters on Halloween night. The scene where the photographer is looking around his house with only a flash bulb to light the room for a second was actually very scary for me. But that was only in the theater, because in between the flashes, the theater was literally pitch black, so you were right there with him.

But now, I usually go into a horror movie thinking it's a comedy; it pretty much defangs any scary movie. And given the crappy state of horror movies, it makes a terrible movie very watchable.

"Lol. Did you see how far his head flew? Guess he won't be in Paranormal Activity 12."

    • You don't see white people glorifying thug life and blaming the police when they get caught. I had a juvi tell me straight up that he believed he was a man now cause he shot somebody. Tell me what's the problem with that. Clearly it's the police? Right??
    • And I've been in jails were there were literally no black people in them, violent or otherwise. Crime in general is a problem in poor communities and the black community is disproportionately poor, its not because black people or the culture is inherently violent. Regardless this is a separate issue and had nothing to do with police violence, unless you feel that violence against the poor is justified regardless of cause because poor people commit violent crimes and shouldn't be afforded equal protectiom
