    Movies dont scare me, the evening news on the other hand ... :eek:

    The Exorcist was scary, but I was very young when I saw it.
    Last House On The Left (original, not the remake) was disturbing, but maybe not scary.

    Just finished this book called Bird Box

    I hear that they may be making it into a movie.

    The horror story in the book is super original and really well done. so I am kinda looking forward to seeing how they capture the oddity and the feeling of the whole damn story in a movie.
    Its written so well. the strange thing.. its the dudes first book, and he is some lead singer in some random band.. but he sure as hell knows how to write a wicked horror story with a very different villain/evil force.

    Loved it.

    if you like books. give it a whirl. I ripped through it in two days and felt odd when I was done.

    I saw the TV adaptation of The Exorcist when I was 10 or 11. Freaked me out!! I threw up and didn't sleep for a couple of days I was so bothered by it.

    To this day, if I think too much about some of the scenes, I'd start freaking myself out again.


    The Shining to me was more a thriller than horror film. Though, the first time I watched it was in the basement staff lounge at a sleep over camp I worked at. Right after the scene with the twin girls and the kid riding the big wheel, we said "NOPE!". Turned it off and ran back to our cabins and watched it in full daylight the next day.

    The special effects in that film are impressive even today, and it was made in 1981 (released in 1982)

    The Shining still creeps me right the hell out, even after seeing it so many times. Stanley Kubrick was a genius.

    Yep, there it is, the moment my cabin mate and I said "hell to the no" and ran like scared little children back to our cabin! :)

    Yes, that scene was genius. The sound of the big wheel going through the hallways, around the turns, going from carpet to hard surfaces and back...the suspense it built up was incredible...all just from a kid riding his big wheel around a hotel.

    The original Evil Dead was pretty fun. Reanimator, too.

    Not a horror film, but The Omen was great, as well.

    The whole Hellraiser series is a great creepout.

    I remember getting a little freaked out as a kid watching Nightmare on Elm street...but ya, gonna have to go with The Exorcist on this one.
    As for the 'most disturbing' movie...The Girl Next Door wins that honor...definitely an effed up movie and the fact its based on a true story makes it that much harder to watch.

    In the movie that melody is creepy as ever, but it's never bothered me in the context of Tubular Bells.
