    The Chucky doll movies freaked me out when I was little because I had lots of stuffed animals. I was scared to death they might come to life at night and murder me or something.

    Nowadays I really like Horror movies but I'm generally not scared by them. I just think they're a cool art form.

    Few horror movies really scare me. It might have to do with the fact that it is my favorite movie genre, and I've pretty much seen everything. A good horror movie however builds suspense and keeps some mystery until the end, so in that sense I actually prefer to be "scared". A well-made horror movie not only keeps one watching until the end and prevents boredom, but raises certain philosophical/existential questions or even makes one ponder the possibility of certain supernatural occurrences. A really good one leads to sleeping with the lights on, but this is very rare for me... This is the kind of horror movies I enjoy watching, movies which don't necessarily include gore -- actually gore can be quite tacky, I also don't enjoy watching psycho/torture movies, so generally movies with mystery/supernatural themes such as ghosts, spirits, possessions, out of body/astral projections, the paranormal/EST, haunted or spiritual natural environments such as forests, lakes, etc.

    As a child, I remember The Birds freaked me out somewhat. Another one which left an impression on me was The Wicker Man (the original, 1973 version, not the Nicholas Cage remake), although when I re-watched it at a later time I thought it was quite biased against "pagans". Regarding the recently seen ones, The Exorcism of Emily Rose did scare me a bit, after I finished watching it was not far from 3 a.m. and I was fearing the devil might come or something. Quite an irrational fear since I don't believe in devils.

    oh, I totally forgot about that movie, that movie scared the crap out of me the first time I saw it, actually it would probably still scare the crap out of me if I saw it now. It was actually a pretty good movie, but I heard they're doing another remake, and unfortunately, remakes of classics very rarely turn out any good, in fact they often butcher them

    So true,...but isn't that the way it always is?

    Horror movies don't scare me much (I also always want to be scared), but when I was younger The Exorcist did a pretty good job (but the book was way better).
    One of my neighbors when I was little was involved with the supposed activities alluded to in the Amityville Horror, she used to try and tell my mother about it and so that kinda freaked me out.

    On a related aside, I attended a seminar given by Lorainne Warren about three years ago (she and her husband Ed were involved in investigating both Amityville and the case ...Emily Rose was based upon). She said the actual case of Emily Rose (pseudonymn) took place in Germany. She had pictures. If they were genuine, it must have been horrifying.

    LOL, it actually was the first time I saw it. In general, I find them psycho-thrillers often scarier than the actual typical Horror movie. Horror movies are often way too cliched to even be near scary.

    And then one I didn't find scary (shocking nonetheless ... the ideas they came up with ) but which was still way enjoyable was Battle Royale. It was just so ... straightforward. Good old Japanese splatter...

    Someone s Watching Me! by John Carpenter.

    Plot

    Killer stalks single woman in high-rise apartment block.

    Review

    Carpenter wrote this TV-film, originally entitling it High Rise. Apparently it was based on a true story which happened in Chicago. The TV movie was shot before Halloween, but premiered on network TV about a month after Halloween opened.

    ---

    Someone’s Watching Me! is genuinely creepy and tense. It's also effectively claustrophobic.
    This movie was released in 1978. I caught it on greek tv some time during the 80's. I must have been 8 or 9 years old, I am now 29, so...count. 20 years later and I'm still scared

    As child 2 movies scared me:

    The Shining


    and

    Stephen King's "Es" (It)



    Now i only get shocked and scared by asian horror movies mostly.

    The asians simply know more about scaring people then Hollywood (Who are even actually copying asian movies (such as The Ring - really poor!)



    Movies which shocked me or at least gave me some chilly moments recently,
    which i can recommend:


    Ryeong - Dead Friend
    Chill Factor: 5/10



    Into the Mirror
    Chill Factor: 7/10



    Inner Senes
    Chill Factor: 6/10




    Cure
    Chill Factor: 11/10




    Cello
    Chill Factor: 6/10

    Jaws scared the living hell out of me (does that count as a horror movie? and Psycho was pretty... psycho.
    Yesterday I watched Saw IV. Hell, I can only describe it as twisted. I'll stick to scifi and comedy, thank you very much.

    "The Exorcist" scared me so badly that I have given up that genre for the last 30 years.
