what's the scariest movie you've ever seen? i'm not asking which one you think is best, just which one honestly scared you the most.
picture related, almost shat my pants when i watched it the first time. second would be nightmare on elm street
Me too. But then I watched it as an adult and thought it was quite lame actually.
I can't think of any horror movie that has scared me as an adult though. However, like a junkie, I'm alway searching for that kick you got from watching horror as a kid.
When I was a kid I saw Dario Argento's Inferno, and it was the scariest shit I had ever seen. It was scary not only because of the horror elements, but because of the weird/surreal 70s aesthetic and typical unfitting but groovy Italian horror movie soundtrack. I had never seen anything that violent before.
I watched this and the other movies in the same series not too long ago and I really liked them. They're not really that scary to me anymore, but goddamn Suspiria and Inferno are visually beautiful. And as I said the soundtrack is groovy as fuck.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
There's a bleak finality to it that's never been equaled in these type of films.
Grave Encounters was pretty spoopy senpai
The 'murrican remake of The Ring made me not be able to sleep for a week. However I was 10 at the time, and it was my first real horror film.
Scariest in modern times is probably Gravity at the cinema. Only for the fact that it sort of actually can happen (the drifting away in space part).
Shit like ghosts and monsters aren't particularly scary when you grow up and understand that they don't fucking exist.
yeah, my dad would allow me to watch almost anything when I was a kid, but he told me not to watch event horizon after seeing it first himself. of course I had to watch it and it scared me shitless
Ya I was 12 when Event Horrizon came out. Scared the shit out of me. I wonder how it holds up today.
I also remember watching this movie called The Relic that scarred me so bad I could not sleep. Watched it a few years ago and found it boring(ish) (I always like monsters)
The Thing (81) scared me but I loved and still like it. Aliens too.
Recently saw Vampyr. The shadow effects were especially unnerving. Really got to me. Was wondering what to watch next. Was thinking either The Phantom Carriage or Eyes Without a Face. Suggestions?
The lawnmower one was better. Fucking Sinister. Movie was a 9/10 when it was just about the home movies, but as soon as the spooky kids and boogyman got involved the movie took a serious nosedive to about a 1.5/10. Only movie that I've seen that ever had a drop like that was Begotten.
Nightmare on Elm Street. Atmosphere is what scares me the most, and that had a lot. The part where Freddy is walking down the alley and his arms elongate to block her escape, very upsetting.
I saw Jacob's Ladder for the first time when I was 5. I pretty much have PTSD from it now. Scene where the nurse's hat falls off and she has the strange growth, and the scene where the car almost runs him down and he sees the face shaking wildly through the window. Stuck with me for many years.
i remember watching jacobs ladder and being bored to bits. when /x/ was a new board and everyone talked about section 9 i watched that too (both these movies routinely appear on /tv/'s best ofs horror movies), literally one of the worst movies ive ever seen.
Fucking sleepaway camp ending, saw it yesterday for the first time and it scared me shitless as an horror movie never did in a looooong time
Man Goblin are fucking perfect for Dario Argento's movies
Man the part in 3, I think, where the father turns on the lights and sees his mother in law and other people dressed in black performing some kind of ritual gave me the chills
I remember a friend of mine talking about it when I was in school (I can still remember her talking about the witch having like horse's hair all over) and then saw it with my uncle (I was really young) it gave me nightmares for years
In regards to the Nightmare on Elm Street series,
I was thinking I would just watch the ones which Wes Craven was involved in.
Anyone think I would I be missing out if I did this?
Event Horizon for me as well. It's hard to top, and scared the hell out of me when I was 10.
Night of the Demon from 1980. It's not really a scary movie but the camerawork looks like a fucking snuff movie and it has Bigfoot both
ripping a guy's dick off while he's peeing in a bushand raping and impregnating a girl who then gives birth to a half-human half-bigfoot thing. Really a greasy and horrible movie
>TFW did way too much drugs
shit scared me straight
That movie was the first time I remember seeing that kind of shaky man business in a horror movie. The effect sure got copied to hell and back there for a while in other horrors.
Chaos from WH40K played straight. Fairly scary, but not as good as it could have been, especially give such a strong cast. I really wish it had made more money, then we could get more cosmic horror and perhaps a legit Lovecraft movie.
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Especially the home invasion video; that shit creeped the fuck out of me.
One Hour Photo was also disturbing because it never occurred to me that developers know all these facets of our lives.
>inside neptunes atmosphere
.. in a straight horror sense not counting any faces of death type movie, which is more like gore
>mfw watching Jacob's Ladder for first time
>mfw I'm in Landstuhl Regional Medical Center
>mfw just been medevaced from Iraq after IED
>mfw watching this shit tripped out on painkillers
>mfw they are showing this in a movie room to other wounded troops
Who the fuck thought this was a good movie to show to drugged up, likely still traumatized wounded service-members?
Honestly a true story.
Why did you have to remind me that awful shit existed you worthless bastard
And then you imply that Silent Hill is not a series well known for lifting concepts from Jacob's Ladder
Kill yourself you disgusting millennial
