Thread: What is the scariest book or film that you've encountered?

  1. #1
    Creepy-male

    Default What is the scariest book or film that you've encountered?

    I'm getting into a horror mood lately. What has scared the shit out of you recently or in the past?

    When I was a young kid probably that awful Jeff Daniels film Arachnophobia scared me the most. I slept with the lights on for a number of years because I thought spiders would eat me alive.



    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a children's book that got me too.

    Lately, I don't really scare too easily but I'd say David Lynch's Inland Empire was one of the few films in recent memory where I had a moment of pure terror -- during the Phantom scene.

    Um, I can't decide for only one....

    Book: King's Pet Semetary scared the living crap out of me as a child.

    Movies:

    Inside - the most terrifying thing I've seen

    Female-Killers-La-Femme-Inside-horror-movies-26155514-1024-683.jpg

    Martyrs, Sinister, Ju-On, The Shining, Session 9, Funny Games, Antichrist.

    70's horror for some reason freaks me out a lot: The Last House on the Left, I Spit on Your Grave, The Omen, Deliverance.

    Honorary gross mentions: Cannibal Holocaust, Salo, Audition.

    The movie that scared me the most of all time was The Strangers http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0482606. I literally felt like I had to walk out of the theater as the premise was getting set up. I think a lot of it had to do that's sort of like my worst nightmare, just having these random people mess with you for no reason and you're with a loved one. Supernatural horror doesn't bother me as much but I remember being extremely scared of that movie as I was seeing it in theaters.

    This Spanish movie Kidnapped (Secuestrados) has a similar theme and I found it quite disturbing, although it's not some huge masterpiece.

    When I was 11 I read some R L Stein book, where some chick killed and cooked a person and served them to guests and I freaked out.

    I didn't watch too many horror films as a child but I watched like Terminator 2 every day almost when I was 5 or 6.

    I wondered about it when I saw this thread, but it kind of transgresses the genre imo. Itīs more psychological and it doesnīt make use of a predictable set of conventions, nor does it try to stir almost standard reactions in the audience. Anyway itīs ofc a very good one. I cannot say it creeps me out, coz I went fast-forward over the exact cutting scene that I had already heard about. The rest was totally chill.

    I generally do not care about genre anyway. If something terrifies or horrifies me then whether or not it follows convention doesn't really matter to me.


    Cemetary Man though, I've NEVER heard of that film and I cannot believe why that is so, given my love of Re-Animator and Evil Dead.

    I absolutely loved that movie baby -- I just watched the first one a couple days ago for the first time in ages. So dark and moody and grimy -- loved it. Which one do you think is better?

    Salo is pretty damned disturbing. Yeah 70s horror has like an incredibly creepy vibe to it. I think mainly because it lacks a lot of the campiness and stylized popcorniness of 80s horror -- and the like fantastical practical effects/makeup are less predominant.

    I'd say Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the king of 70s horror.

    The Exorcist is the only scary movie that has left it's mark on my psyche and to this day I am filled with anxiety whenever I see it mentioned, or in a commercial. I will close my eyes and hum to myself until I can change the channel. I was too young to watch it and it left me terrified, leaving me with a full year of dreams where I walked into my bedroom and there she was, heading spinning and all. Sometimes it was me in the dream possessed as she was in the movie. I slept on the couch for a year because the dreams left me with the worst feeling that something "bad" would happen in my bedroom.

    Also, I read a book called "The Demonologist" when I was 12 and it just reinforced the terror of the Exorcist. That coupled with some forced religious, you are going to hell, beliefs made my childhood an ongoing nightmare.

    But now I can laugh about it, sometimes. Maybe the imprint this made on me manifests in a constant underlying battle of, do I believe in good and evil within me and why I get pulled to the darkside so often.

    Both the T1000 and badass Sarah Connor in T2 are great -- I won't knock that movie -- but the first Terminator is by far the best. I think that the character arc of Sarah is a bit more dynamic in the first. T2 does a lot of new and interesting things -- and totally blows away the first one in terms of action scenes -- but a lot of the plot is a callback to how awesome the first film was. It could just be that T2 is like emblazoned into my childhood memory -- the grass is always greener --- and that I just have a deeper fondness for 80s practical special effects and dark synth music. I like that style a lot.

    haha I know so many people that bash T2 and I, lol, agree that it doesn't have the strength the T1 has especially production and screenplay wise but I still prefer it over T1 cause I first saw T2 and then T1 lol yes haha I saw T2 when I was like 12 for the first time and T1 when I was 14 cause vhs and lol the awkwardness to find it. but I still agree that T1 is the freakin masterpiece - music is everything, rough effects and the whole trashiness vibe is off the hook but for me it can't beat T2 no way no how - it's the emotional bond

    You did not get nightmares over Killer Klowns from Outer Space. It's one of my favorite flicks.
