Scary movie thread

I think I posted something similar last year around this month,
I think it was “What was a scary movie that traumatized you as a kid?” type of title.

Halloween is coming soon, so I’ll start a new one.
So…what movie scared you as a kid, or as an adult?

When I was a kid, Child’s Play scared me. The idea of a doll moving around with a knife
horrified me. Now that I am taller and heavier, all I need to do is stomp that damn doll on the head.
Still though, even as an adult, that doll still creeps me out.

I remember watching Stir of Echoes with my room mate back in college, that was pretty scary. I think my room mate was more scared than I was though, he followed me around in the apartment after the movie because he said “he didn’t want to be alone.”
(He was 23 years old at the time.)

Oh man, I have tons. I don’t know the title of the movie - but the oldest one I remember was a very old American horror movie about these little furry monsters combining themselves into a gigantic furry boulder that rolled on people and skinned them alive. There was a farmer of some sort that got “rolled” and ended up as a bloody skeleton - probably funny if I watch it now, but it was super scary for me as a child.

I was also afraid of one of the Indiana Jones movies where a guy turned into a skull on-screen (great animation for that era, now that I think about it). And uh… Poltergeist. Yeah. I probably would fear The Exorcist too, but I refuse to watch that until now, haha.

The Ring and Ju-On were really jump-scary, but not necessarily traumatizing except for some iconic scenes.

I remember The Exorcist being pretty frightening, although nowadays it’s not scary at all for me. Alien was also good.
Meanwhile stuff Paranormal Activity 2 was actually terribly made and I think I laughed at it.
Most horrors don’t actually creep me out, IDK. When I’m watching them I’m thinking more about the special effects/make-up they used than the actual thing. As in, “wow, nice scare”, etc.

I have an elder sister that was like a censor… Every time we watched TV together and suddenly a horror scene/film popped out, she sticked my head under a chair. Brutal but effective.
When I was a child, she didn’t let me see Indiana Jones, for example…
Anyway, I am still shivering because of The Ring.

A Spanish movie, called REC, is also good. I’ve seen it several times because I like the plot, it isn’t super scary and it isn’t stuffed with silly special effects.

“Saw” movie scared me as hell when I was about 8 I believe?

I agree that The Exorcist back in the 70’s was quite terrifying and rather tame by todays standards.
Back then these were groundbreaking movies. Also, I did like The Changeling with George C Scott, one of my favorite ghost movies.

Yeah, REC1/2/Quarantine are very good horror movies. The american remake wasn’t that bad and the stupid sequel was actually kinda charming, I remember liking it (note: there’s not even a first person view in the sequel anymore).

After the remake of Oldboy, I have trust issues towards remakes.
I liked Rec 1 and 2 but never seen Quarantine

Watching “The Exorcist” around 13 yo was not a good idea…

As an adult “Shining” is still for me one of the greatest disturbing and haunting masterpiece.

Exorcism of Emily Rose freaked me out. It is a true story of a girl who got possessed and there are even actual audio footages of the exorcism in YouTube

I saw the Poltergeist yeeeeeeaaaars ago as a kid, I think it did scare me enough.
Truth be told, I’ve never seen The Exorcist nor the Shining, even though I do know the overall plot and all the famous scenes/lines.
I guess I’m missing out…

How about the Series “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. Both are art piece. Anyone watched it?
