like that, The Shining, The Thing and Pet Sematary. And the Thing and Pet Sematary were only scary because of my age. The only horror movies i've seen that I feel would genuinely scare me if I watched them today are The Shining and TBWP and i've seen a metric fuck tonne of horror movies. Too old man. shit aint scary once you realise you're gonna die alone.
>find way home
>mfw haunted woods
>never ending maze
>mfw they already met the witch
>its the creepy lady
>she even has tufts of hair on her arms
>dead from the start.
Because it's shot as handheld and has some genuinely creepy shit without showing anything.
>tfw still get the heebie jeebies thinking about the children hitting the tent seen
>baby in the woods???
The last ones were Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, which I watched in high school
earlier than that:
>Halloween (John Carpenter)
>The Sixth Sense
21 now, it's a lot harder to find things that really stick with me so I've kind of given up on caring about horror movies as a whole
watched a ton back when I was into them though
actually it's dark right now and I'm kind of spooping myself out recalling all of these movies
if you've seen it you know which scene I'm talking about
>babbies first horror film
you have to over 18 to post here.
I grew up in a very big, very old house
things like the staircase scene hit me hard, it's a legit nuanced scary movie
I guess Signs wasn't that bad, more of the part where the alien shows up on the news channel and some of the field scenes are just a little spooky
also the surprise ending of Carrie out of nowhere, I was 12 years old and huddled up next to my tv alone in the dark and just about shit my pants
For me it's how good the back story is explored without revealing too much. Good story telling really builds up tension and complements the second half of the movie. This scene is a good example:
I guess it's sort of the ultimate creepy pasta.
exorcist ruined me, i watched it when i was like 12 or something.
Then there were the screamers on the internet, like the maze game and others, with the face of the exorcist girl, or that demon face from the exorcist (pale face, reddish eyelids). I was scared of clicking any links until i was like 18 years old or something.
Absolutely. Not to mention it is the single most realistic old man make up I can recall. Seriously, even recent stuff looks totally fake compared to Dick Smith's aging of von Sydow.
Part III was also very scary imo.
I gathered my entire family and some friends to watch Bone Tomahawk together.
>mfw I had already seen it and knew what was coming
It's a mixture of the themes of the album and the surreal interpretations of them, like these kids with horrifying masks slowly walking into a meat grinder
While I didn't find it scary, I did find it awesome. Probably my favorite film of the year.
>O LORD! O JESUS CHRIST!
it was all fairly unnerving
but everything after the pizza up till she faints was so fucking tense
I'm talking about the Radcliffe one. Never seen the original. Is it worth watching?
Sorry if I sound like a huge pussy if I think the Radcliffe one is scary. But that scene where the Woman appears behind him and rollerblades towards the camera got me spooked
That was awesome. We had a substitute English teacher show it to us not long after the ban was lifted on watching it when I was in high school. I remember the buckets of wedding rings.
Now I'm going to have to find a download or something.
the sheer terror of the nuclear strike and the dread leading up to it (not as if '80s england wasn't horrifying enough!)
then there's like a long epilogue of how people cope and survive in a proper post-apocalyptic society - none of that mad max shit, just utter hopelessness as what's left of humanity reverses back to the middle ages; toiling, stealing and killing under the giant soot cloud that darkens the earth. a big nothing
it really fucked me up
>Never seen the original. Is it worth watching?
I think so. It is very much of its time, but it relies more on atmosphere and dread rather than jump scares, and is thus more frightening to me.
all of you have absolute shit taste
does anyone else have jim as their /tv/ husbando?
The utter fear of isolation, portrayed as a universal hostility of everybody else to the point of fearing for your life. A post modern critique of our need to connect with people no matter how dangerous it can be.
>tfw BWP still makes me uncomfortable
>tfw everyone else says it's shit and not scary
Am I the only one spooked by the idea of getting lost in the woods and having weird unexplained shit happen all around you, like the sound of trees getting chopped down in the distance at night or your missing friend screaming for help?
>in the shitty spin-off comics the last we hear about jim is that he's going to be executed by firing squad in paris for what he did to west's rape squad
>he's replaced by some americunt literalwho pretty boy journalist who ends up retreating to burgerland with selena
>americunt gets to pork selena safe and sound while the man who worked so hard to keep his friends safe rots in baguette land
>writer for the movie is from london
>writer for the comic is from portland india
>director for 28 weeks later is some spic
I only have one headcanon for this series and only this series. Everything that happened in the comic and 28 weeks later didn't happen and the original 28 days later ending is the very last thing we see in the series. Ambiguously hopeful.
Seriously though, who's fucking idea was it to kill of Jim in a shitty comic and actually make it canon?
I literally just watched this scene over 5 times trying to find the apparent hair on her arms and curtains moving in the background but I didn't see any of it. I always thought the blair witch got them because
josh fucks up the rock piles and heather steals one of the symbols hanging in the woods
Are you fucking kidding me they actually did that? Holy shit, it's actually on the fucking wiki?
Antichrist is disturbing. Watch it alone with the lights off of course, probably my favorite horror along with The Shining and TBWP. The thing that makes scary movies scary is the ambiguity. Most movies show you a monster eventually, and you say, "oh". But when they don't tell you what it is, and keep it in your head, that's when it really becomes something worth being afraid of.
You just made me gag. On cock. Because she made me gay. Just the thought that I might fuck her some day in some drunken fog simply because I'm straight, even at near impossible odds, made me crave dick the moment I saw her face and hears her talk. In fact, I became a woman because my dick shriveled up inside me, leaving me a new pseudo pussy.
You gay, nigga? Cuddling?!?
>come across some eldritch cryptic ritual symbols in the middle of the wilderness
>fuck with them
They deserved what came to them.
The night time scenes when they were hearing things were genuinely very unnerving to me though. Everyone has heard the tell-tale heavy snap of twigs as someone walks through the woods in the distance and being surrounded by it while lost in the middle of the night is terrifying. The scene with the baby noises was really unnerving to me, I've heard a lot of people say that if you hear an infant crying from the woods and there's nobody around it's a very bad omen and you should immediately leave. This movie is scary as hell to me but it's a shame that it's still tarnished in my mind from the dozens of parodies at the time of it's release.
>'ve heard a lot of people say that if you hear an infant crying from the woods and there's nobody around it's a very bad omen and you should immediately leave.
Really?? I thought this was a good sign!?!?
cant see shit, where is the hair?
Also, she was a random responder to their fliers and shit they were just looking for someone to play a person in town.
Its unlikely shes the witch, however possible shes under the witches control.
Like that other guy, (or so he claimed)
Not a movie, but gives me intense chills every time I see it
You think that's bad... I saw it for the 20th time a few months ago on TV and they rolled an alternate ending after the parachute scene where he bleeds out and dies and no plane comes
>there was an alternate ending where jim sacrifices himself for frank by draining all his blood and switching it with jim
>the movie ends with a restrained and infected jim thrashing about on a hospital stretcher with a bunch of other infected expressing their frustration towards the situation
Thank god it only ever made it to storyboarding, I'd hate to see what infected Jim looks like. Considering how vicious and violent he can be and considering how warm and kind he can also be, seeing him infected would be terrifying and saddening.
i watched this movie with my brother recently
he was bugging me about it because he said it was scary shit and didnt want to watch it alone so i sat down with him
it was like about this small church in the middle of bumfuck nowhere that had like a demon in it or whatever, it had some loud jump scares and the atmosphere was pretty good overall
but what got me was the ending
>YOU SAID IT WASNT REAL
scariest film i've ever seen. ending actually gave me a panic attack
dont be fooled by the shitty poster
Too bad it went to shit once they started physically interacting with the moster.
zombie films with running zombies
that shit freaks me out, even if its a bad flick anything with running zombies cranks up the scary pressure for me. Like return of the living dead and 2004 Dawn of the dead. Even I am legend and world war z freaked me out because of the hyper athletic running thing
World War Z zombies were shit when they were running. It might as well have been a disease that mutated people into Velociraptors since all they did was chase people down and bite them once.
The only good parts in that movie were the ones that didn't rely on speed, the lab-sneaking and trying to move quietly through the army base at night were good.
spoopiest movie ever made
Basically, there are these two astronauts who just came back from a flight, one in hospital, the other visiting him. The visitor is freaking out because no one seems to remember a third astronaut, not even the hospital naut. The hospital naut reassures the visiting naut there was no other astronaut.
When he leaves, the hospital naut read through the papers, which now say he was the only naut, and all evidence of the visiting naut is gone, no one remembers him but the hospital naut. The hospital naut realises that he is also going to get poofed out of existence, freaks out and the episode ends with him disappearing
Dont know why, but it always freaked me the fuck out
Well I don't know if this counts but when me and a couple friends went to see star wars they had the trailer for the 3d not cartoon jungle book come up. I don't know why but the movie seems incredibly dark and I didn't expect to get spooked so much, especially the whole snake bit.
I mean I haven't felt that kind of feeling since I was a little kid watching stuff like return of the living dead or house on the haunted hill. Biggest thing that bothers me the most is that scary movies or even games can't get that kind of reaction out of me. It's like the first ounce of crude nightmare fuel I've had in 10 years
Mental illness scares the shit out of me
im not sure why but THIS scared me more then any other movie,the score,the baby,the girl in the radiator happily dancing while stepping on falling sperm
still scares me when i think about this film
a real work of genius
I don't tend to watch films that go for scary anymore, just compelling or interesting (I think is the goal anyway).
I just don't find it scary for one reason or another. Got spooked like fuck by Halloween as a kid but that's about it. I sort of miss the feeling. Knowing I MUST keep watching to the end to know I'm safe from the monster.
There was that Japanese movie that I found scary, I think it was Kairo? Cairo?
Its really very unsettling and goes beyond typical scares, gore (there is no gore) and psychology. Its shot in the way that makes it just really unsettling the whole time and depressive.
the scene when they need to change the tire on the car and you can see the shadows of the ones running at at them inside that tunnel.
Henry and original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Just knowing people like that are out there is pretty unsettling.
to a lesser extent, August Underground is very uncomfortable to watch alone in the dark at night, and the shit that happens to Megan's friend at the end of Megan is Missing has to be the absolute worst way to fucking die.
I know its a meme series but the 1st Paranormal Activity fucked me up something good.
The movie itself was shit and not scary but holy fuck did I not sleep well in my own bed that night, every god damn noise was a ghost.
A Field in England isn't really a horror movie but this scene unnerved me like few movies have
A couple of years ago I remember seeing this odd video on youtube. I think I typed in "mentally disturbing" in the search bar, or something like that. Anyways, the video was pretty simple. All you could see was something that looked like white smoke, and you could hear muffled whispers. The odd thing is, everytime I watched it, I saw something different in the smoke. Like skulls, faces, hands etc. The video description was something like the uploader had been to an institution for mentally ill people, for reasons I can't remember, also he had a camera with him. One of the patients took the camera and apparently filmed himself, talking. The uploader of the video also mentioned that people reported seeing different images everytime they saw the video, weird shit. I can't find it anymore though.
The shining and tbwp were the only real scary ones to me as a kid as well, well there was one wierd vampire film that gave me nightmares for nearly a week but i'll never know what it was called :(,only scene I can remember was a woman in the shower across the street either having sex or being attacked by the vampire..
I know that green styling is turning my stomach.
the film doesn't offer a lot of (if any) explanations but I think
whatever occult magic O'Neil uses to turn him into a divining rod for the treasure also drives him temporarily insane
noroi got me for a few days
that mask just doesn't sit right with me
i dont think i've seen this mentioned on /tv/ before and it's a shame cause it definetly stands out to me as one of the creepiest films i've seen
it's filmed so it appears to be one long continuous take and it actually works really well as i recall with the atmosphere also being tense as fuck
>nuanced horror movie
That's why it's fucking shit.
"it's only scary if you can relate", what kind of writing is this? Its so boring and one dimensional. The human mind is powerful and the truest horror is probably our own self awareness. If a writer can't even elicit a natural fear response because he they were too focused on context, then they failed.
Because the actors were genuinely scared, read the trivia on IMBD. On point where they find out the one guy is one and they're running hearing his screams, one of the film crew is standing on a hill with a white robe and ski mask on, and you can see the girls reaction yelling 'WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT'. It was unscripted as was most of the movie.
Posted this before but me and my friends would all pause the VHS at this exact moment and had a huge theory going that the old lady Mary was The Blair Witch.
Check out her face poking through the tent.
apparently in the filming of this the directors were complete cunts and didnt tell the actors much of what they were doing. A couple times where they're running through the woods it's cos the directors had dressed up in sheets and genuinely terrified them
We had to watch the original in class for GCSE english so I probably wasnt in the best atmosphere to be spooked, but this scene was just fucking hilarious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhuc-ot7Ryg
Pic related wasn't the scariest thing ever but I really enjoyed it as a horror movie.
This shit still makes me jolt every single time. I think it has something to do with the way they lit the face, the eye sockets just look like bottomless black pits and its so jarring with that zoom.
I was looking over my shoulder constantly while home alone for a few months after seeing this.
Only movie that's ever really creeped me out.
Absolute shit-tier, Nostalgic factor at best. Blair Witch released 2016 would barely be nominated on some shitty hipster movie fest, let alone be noticed by anyone. We have Far superior, scarier and haunting movies such as Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2.
is it your first time watching it? I only got scared shitless the first time i saw because i was 12 and hadn't seen that many horror movies
BWP still gives me the creeps but that's only when i watch it once in a blue moon and late at night
it's pretty scary if you can really involve yourself in it
I'm getting to the point in my life where I'm finding shit scary again, in my early 20's I couldn't really find anything scary besides maybe jumpscares, but now the jumpscares aren't scary at all and it's bizarre and horrifying stuff like this that really gets to me
I'll be real with you, this gave me nightmares for years as a kid. Just the cover. I never actually saw the movie, but the cover terrified me.
Other than being
an okaythe cabin scene is arse clenching
>that reveal that the shadowy cabal that runs the world
are Mithras worshippers
I watch maybe one horror movie every week or two and I literally can't remember the last time I was actually scared by a movie. Maybe it was pic related, not because the movie was scary, but because I was disturbed by the mind that would conceive and execute
bigfoot rape babies
This was awful. All I got from this was torture porn and director trying to be edgy for the sake of being edgy and coming up with such bullshit as "what if nature was satan?" or some shit.
No ones posted this yet. I am disappoint.
For some reason a song sampled the music from this and I had to turn it off.
I guess you can say it got under my skin.
Is Josh killing them pretty plausible and fucking with them the whole time? I mean the only thing which adds to this theory is that he mentions not having anyone before they enter the woods.
I saw this shit when I was 8 and it gave me nightmares for like 3 fucking years.
Still unsettles me to this day.
There's a lot of lore that says that a babies cries are to be feared in the wilderness, or disembodied ones. There are things in native American lore that lure you out of your house by mimicking baby cries, and IIRC it's often used for the darker versions of fae. I can't be bothered to find a better example right now, but here's one from Indonesia that seems to fit the bill.
>If the cry is soft, it means that the pontianak is close, and if it is loud, then it must be far.
>kills its victims by digging into their stomach with its sharp fingernails and devouring their organs. In some cases where the pontianak desires revenge against a male individual, it rips out the sex organs with its hands. It is said that if you have your eyes open when a pontianak is near, it will suck them out of your head.
h-hold me, anons...
Best horror atmosphere coming through.
What did Kaneda see?
Pic related was spooky as fuck. on a psychological level
>go out camping
>starts to get dark
>set up tent and go inside
>dark, moonless night
>people still think this is retarded
it would have sent civilization straight to you rather than the other way around
god /tv/ has the shittiest fucking memes I bet you reply to "because a galaxy far far away is actually hell" threads 10 times too
I worked 2 fast food joints, for a total of 5 years while in HS/College and that movie was terrifying to me. Mostly because I could really see it happening, and it does - all the time.
People at those places are so scared at the lack of job security, and the fear of disappointing the wrong customer is so deeply ingrained, that shit like that happens. You spend long enough watching the massive turn-over for dumb shit like looking at a customer who's having a bad day the wrong way, and it just gets that way. Granted, for something so extreme like the movie it would have to be a perfect storm... like in the movie.
nice tits tho
For TBWP people get caught up too much in whether or not it's real and they end up missing the point. The same people who think they somehow "outsmarted" the creators of the film deny themselves the treat of being properly creeped out by a brilliant film.
It's a wonderful psychological film that still gets talked about today. It is well directed despite many people dismissing it's "gimmick" (handheld). There are lots of subtle visual clues that tell the story in its own way - see lingering shot on car, and a shot where the person holding the camera does a full 360 spin before entering the forest foreshadowing them getting lost.
It's a shame it doesn't get the credit it deserves.
Squad based Mechanic ala X-Com in which your squad mates may or may not be converted into Skinwalkers as you progress through increasingly more and more disturbing environments where the signs of the monster are present but may or may not even be truly there.
In my opinion this was the only found footage horror to actually live up to TBWP's name. Even the jump scares were well crafted.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it was pretty unerving and fucking creepy from the start but when this happened it shocked me and set the tone for the rest of the movie.
Skinwalkers as you probably know them are something loosely based on true lore cooked up over creepypasta, refined more and more until what you now know. That's why we'll never see a movie about them specifically.
As far as a movie about the actual lore? I'll have to look around I'm sure there's something out there. If not, there really should be.
The only games I've been scared by relied entirely on jump scares and suspense created by said jump scares. I'd doubt anyone could make a good skinwalker game.
I've heard the game for The Thing wasn't terrible, and is comparable.
The Devil Rides Out
pretty good paired with Night Of The Demon (1957)
