Haute tension/Switchblade romance and the Descent are the only recent efforts that are any good that i can think of.

(the dtv film dead Birds wasn't too bad as well)

A modern one that never seems to get mentioned is The Others. Saw it at the cinema and remember being utterly terrified. Have it on DVD but haven't watched it since, scared that it won't work a second time...

The two Blair Witch films - the first is a love/loathe film, the second is very unsettling, particularly on return visits.

Ghostwatch - BBC drama, only seen it once (original broadcast), had to turn over to The Fog on C4 to calm back down....

Kairo (Pulse - the original) and Dark Water are the two Japanese horror that made an impression on me. The HK editions are cheap and perfectly serviceable.

Tale of Two Sisters - I enjoy most Korean horror hugely but not sure how many really are scary as opposed to fun/admirable. Memento Mori is a good one (reminds me of Picnic at Hanging Rock in ways).

Inferno is the Dario that still has uncomfortable moments for me, perhaps because its not-so-linear structure makes it hard to remember when the damn surprises happen.

Whats the old zombie film of the Dawn, Day, Night series that has that scary bit at the start with the girl looking in the mirror, and then all the hands shoot out of the wall?

It was very well done. Jumptastic.

Ooh, don't! Horrible - took ages to get over that. Watched the BFI DVD of it fairly recently and, even now as an adult, it's bloody scary, although that might be more that I remember how scared I was when it was on originally.

Probably because it seems so keen to push the limits of screen violence. You could say the same of Irreversible. I can't see myself watching either again anytime soon.

You wanna watch a Tale of 2 Sisters, that was one trippy film ! from the english ones, most recently The Exorcism of Emily Rose was quite scary, all the ones where there is an element of truth or 'based on a true story' ones seem to get to me a bit more then the others.

In no way take this as some kind of ethnic slur, but I found the tale of 2 sisters hard to understand as the actresses looked the same. I could not differentiate sufficiently between the sisters, or the olders!

Only movie to freak me out Big Time at the cinema has been The Descent. For individual scenes, I concur regarding THAT pant-fudging scene in the Exorcist III. Also there is a scene in Lynch's "Lost Highway" where the camera just stares at the dark corner of a room, with the sound growing more ominous, that totally freaks me out.

Also I'm probably one of the few people who loved the original Blair Witch Project & even on a third viewing, with the lights out & the sound turned up, it still gives me chills.
