  • My favorite horror movie is an old 1954 classic, THEM. The old professor and his daughter, both entomologists, are called to a crime scene in the desert, where a trailer has been destroyed and a huge strange track has been found. The professor has a hunch and discovers giant ants, big as an 18 wheeler! The army comes in to destroy their nests in the storm drains of L.A. and our hero almost loses his life! I liked it because it wasn't the old formula of a maniac or an 'other-worldly' Dracula or werewolf. It was an intelligent story about the possible effects of radiation on life as we know it, and it's solution was an intelligent one. Most horror films I'd seen up to that point had been cheap thrown together stuff. But in this film, the acting, the dialogue and the special effects were excellent.

  • Horror films are horrible.
    Garbage in. Garbage out.

  • the texas chainsaw massacre!!! ftw!!!
  • Hmmm......maybe Ring (Japanese) because when you are alone at night and think of Sadako going out of that TV, it's kind of freaky. And/or Rec (the original Spanish version) because Angela Vidal was supposed to just do a boring night some boring reporting and the thought of her and crew getting into a sticky, sticky situation is a bit off.
  • My favorite 'scary movie' would have to be the Shining. Yes I know it's not really scary but the book is pretty creepy. I had to do a Joey from Friends and put it in the freezer a few times haha
  • My favorite scary movie is "Something Wicked This Way Comes." 
    It tackles the fundamentals of good v. evil, trust, and huma
  • I don't know for sure, but it's most likely a vampire movie. I love them. The one that comes to mind is Bram Stoker's Dracula, the version with Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman.

    On a similar note, I watched the SciFi channel's 7 hr Ghost Hunters Live show, and it was so cool. My favorite part was when Jason and Grant were in the dungeon tunnels and heard the disembodied voice say to them (twice) "You are not supposed to be here." It was a deep growly male voice. It sent chills through my body.

    I also have to mention that I had my own paranormal experience a few years ago. Some friends and I were in Atchison, KS, and were driving around looking at homes that are said to be haunted. We were behind this one house, called Sally's House, and I took a few photos of the windows. I captured what I believe to be entity photos. The images are easier to see when you look at them directly on the camera, but here's one of them. Let me know if you see anything...hint: I see two faces.

    Here's the other one...I only see one of the faces in it, but I've been told there's another, but I don't see it.

    If you want to know the story behind this house, Google Atchison, KS, haunted houses and Sally's House.

  • i actually hate scary movies. but sleepy hollow is definitely my favorite. i love that movie.

  • My all-time scary movie is the original "Psycho", directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. "Silence of the Lambs" with Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster sometimes takes its place, depending whether I've watched the film again. And I also enjoy "Heavenly Creatures" with Kate Winslet... shocking and based on true events as is "Psycho". However, I'm a sucker for cinematic psychological dramas: good writing, dialogue, characterization, acting, setting, music, and direction, and I am game.
