Scariest Horror Film

Ok, so me and my girlfriend have been having a discussion about what the scariest horro film is, and what makes a good horror.

We both however disagree on what the scariest is.

I was petrified at The Ring, but she thinks that the scariest was probably 28 Days Later, but only on the first time she saw it.

What do you guys think?


Jamie

Modern, Classic or World Forum is what I'm thinking.

I'll probably get absolutely slaughtered for this BUT I actually found Blair Witch scary as hell.

But then I watched after all the hype had died down and expected it to be cack, was pleasantly surprised tbh.

I'm with you on the Blair Witch Project, couldn't even go look at the website. But for me the scariest film ever was Picnic at Hanging Rock. I had nightmares for weeks afterwards as a teenager.

Childs Play.... still don't know if you can get it yet over here or whether it's still banned but the way Chucky taunts the child... it's not out right in your face from what I remember... I just remember it giving me the chills and freaking me out... still got the original VHS lying around somewhere....

Halloween is still a spine tingler.... as is Blair Witch, I never got wrapped up in the hype myself and who's to say it's not a true story, perhaps the studio had to say that because of the number of fans that descended on the town and the woods... perhaps they perpetuated a lie to protect the truth.... perhaps more folks went missing, perhaps they were feeding the witch... crap I've just made the sequel... never bloody mind

Ring

Chilling stuff indeed... the other half loves horror films, but couldn't sleep after watching this one.

Not really a horror film I suppose but Erazerhead is probably the most disturbing film I've ever seen.
Yep had to leave the lights on after that one.

I agree with the positive comments on The Blair Witch Project.
Good to see a modern horror film that leaves it to the viewers imagination for it's scares and not some lousy CGI creation or a bloke in a monster suit.

The Thing was and still is pretty freaky.

I remember watching a movie called Xtro when I was very young and I remember that left a few scarred memories.

lots of good old horror movies but none would really scare me today.

I'd probably say Ring, Eye and Dark Water are 3 of the scariest horror movies by todays standards.

I love scary movies but I find I don't scare very easily anymore. And I always find those that play with your head much scarier than the gorfests.

Easily the scariest movie I ever saw was 'The Changeling'. It's a long time since I saw it but even now, thinking about that wheelchair, and the little ball bouncing down the stairs, gives me the chills!

This one really gave me the chills when I was a kid (about 8 I think) - Quaternass and the Pit. Quatermass 2 is pretty chilling as well.

No out and out blood and gore but the special fx on the pit where pretty amazing for a british horror film of that era.

The Ring and I found The Others a bit unnerving.

I've heard that Black Christmas is supposed to be quite scary, but i've never seen it.
