When I first saw The Shining, I slept with the light on for a month! I'm much less easily scared now but don't like watching scary films on my own. Most of my friends don't like horror, so I don't really get to see anything much. Tried to see The Ring (Japanese) at a local arthouse cinema when it was out but it was full and we couldn't get in.
The series True Blood has a few jumpy bits in it and IMO it's a good-quality vampire yarn.
Ringu - yes.
Quatermass and the Pit - from my childhood - kinda black and white that gets shown on old movie channels. Still can't bring myself to watch it.
+1 for the original Japanese Ring - my jaw literally dropped at the scary moment
It took me ages to work up the courage to see the Shining as the book terrified me and although it wasn't quite as bad it was still scary.
But the film that scared me the most was Nightmare on Elm Street when I was 19. I had to sleep with the lights on for a month! I'm sure if I saw it again it probably wouldn't be that scary but maybe it would...
I watched The Vanishing when I was in the middle of my finals, and already quite highly strung. I didn't know about it, it just seemed like an interesting little romantic yarn. The ending was so horrifying it bothered me for months afterwards.
I understand there's an American remake with a different ending, which sounds a bit like changing the ending of Titanic where the ship doesn't sink.
Rickster it was shown on Syfy the other week...weird is the onyl word for it.
For me, Silent Hill..never expected the ending.
Good Koren horror R-Point...Had to watch it twice to make sure the thing i saw actually happend as its so well made.
scarred the begebus out of me when I sneeked in to see it when I was 16, had to sleep with lights on for weeks.
Don't watch many scary movies now as I like my sleep and my sanity.
Blood and guts don't bother me too much but the paranrnormal,unknown, physcological stuff I realy don't like...so I don't whatch it much
