    I agree with you, Gagnraad. I saw that film about two years ago, and it completely unnerved me. The other one I find chilling and disturbing is The Eye/Gin Gwai (2002); I cannot bring myself to see it again. :runaway

    The Eye is a great movie indeed. The american version of the ring two was rubbish but the original ones are freaky.

    Aye, I just rented The Ring II, Brothers Grimm and Ripper 2 - Letter From Within
    So I hope that one of these actually scares me Haven't been scared or unnerved from a horror movie on a long time now (With the exception of The Grudge)

    Scariest Horror Film ?

    I don't suppose that anyone else remembers "I Walked with a Zombie", but it scared the bejazus out of me. I guess I was about 13 at the time. It lacked everything that makes a "good" modern horror film. It wasn't in color, it wasn't gruesome, it wasn't gory, all it was is eery and creepy. Modern horror films are, IMO, too explicit. They leave too little to the imagination; they are over-stated. "I Walked with a Zombie" didn't show anything really horrible or gruesome. It just suggested the possibilities of evil and let the viewer's imagination run rampant, and mine sure did.

    The Exorcist, when I first saw it at age 10, scared the hell of out me (Pun intended )

    As silly as it sounds, also, when I was very young, the movie Gremlins scared the bejesus out of me! I was horrified that there were little monsters under every nook and cranny, plotting to kill me in some awful way!

    I really loved watching horror movies as a child. Another one that frightened me was Stephen King's Cat's Eye. How lucky I felt that we always had more than our share of cats in the house!

    More of my favorite horror movies from my childhood include:
    Pumpkinhead
    Nightmare on Elm Street III - Dream Warriors
    Deadtime Stories
    Creepshow
    Killer Nerd
    Dead Alive
    The Gates of Hell
    Puppetmaster

    There are hundreds more, but these are all I can think of at the moment.

    In more recent years, I got a good thrill when seeing The Ring in the movie theater, but that's about it. I really don't care for modern horror at all. These movies aren't scary, they're just gross!

    Yeah the old horrors are the best by far.Black and white adds tons to the feeling of horror.

    That's what freaked me out about 'Prince of Darkness'.
    For those who haven't seen it, a group of post-grad students and their lecturers are asked by a New York priest to spend a weekend 'investigating' a strange, ancient tube in the crypt of a disused church in a rough area of the city.

    They move in, pissed off that they can't spend their weekend partying, and set up all kinds of instruments and consoles throughout the building, whilst a linguistics post-grad starts translating, via computer code, a book written in an unknown language in the crypt.

    To cut to the chase, the green fluid in the ornate, ancient tube is Satan, and we have a battle between Mankind's atheistic science, and Evil itself.

    It's low budget, and has little violence in it, but I found it (having, myself, studied biology and chemistry at Uni) very disturbing.
    The scariest part was that whenever the students and lecturers fell asleep, they all had the same, fragmented dream.
    Except it wasn't a dream, it was actually a message being broadcast from the future (1999). From a world where Satan had been unleashed on Earth.
    A desparate future, where you could only imagine the circumstances in which the scientists who sent the SOS message to the past (via tachyon technology) lived.
