Well, one film to disturb you and freak you out might be David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers. (certainly if you're going to smoke some pot beforehand ) Saw it in college and they had to stop the movie twice, once because somebody passed out and once because someone was having a epileptic seizure.

I wouldn't say that Martyrs is so much of a gore fest and packed with suspense as much as it's profoundly disturbing and depressing. It took me several days to stop thinking about those last 15 minutes of the movie. I do recommend it but it won't be your average horror fan's cup of tea.

I'm a huge scardy cat. The remotest hint of someone creeping up on someone else will cause me to clamp my hands over my eyes. Having said that, I will have to disagree with the Blair Witch suggestion- it was the least scary thing I have ever seen. In fact I was bored. On the other hand I know some friends who thought it was terrifying and if you're planning to watch it stoned and alone you might find if scary too. Personally Im planning on watching the Australian film "wolf creek" as it's supposed to be very frightening.

Not a movie, but "American Horror Story" is scary as hell, and I say that as someone who doesn't scare easily. ("Paranormal Activity" did nothing for me. Ditto "Blair Witch." I liked the "Scream" films only because they were partly satire.) As a bonus, the first season has lots of shots of a buck-nekkid Dylan McDermott.

If you haven't seen ROSEMARY'S BABY, you must ...a classic, entertaining & ultimately very scary film.

A couple more--

BREAKDOWN (1997)...what sounds like a 'B' movie turns out to be a taut, very creepy thriller. Kurt Russell stars as a husband moving out west, whose wife mysteriously disappears. JT Walsh is masterful as a trucker who may know more than he lets on. Jack Noseworthy provides some eye candy for us boys.

VICTIM (2010)..."A young man is abducted from a night club parking lot by a sinister surgeon and his silent (but brutal) henchman. The duo keeps the man locked up in the basement of their mansion, and the crazed surgeon proceeds to conduct a series of cruel experiments and bizarre surgeries on the poor guy. As the prisoner is tortured mentally and physically on a daily basis for months it appears that he was selected by his captors for a reason and that he isn’t just a random victim who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time." --horrornews.net review [and might i add that the young man is exceedingly good-looking!]

"Lunchroom Manners," starring Mr. Bumbles

by Anonymousreply 9701/28/2013

Pretty much every horror movie before 1975 IS NOT SCARY TO MODERN AUDIENCES -- it's just camp.

Maybe they were scary to some of the eldergays here when they first came out.

But the entire state of the cinematic arts has changed DRASTICALLY since then. Visual and special effects are better, technical craftsmanship is A-list and so is the storytelling quality on many. More modern films have trumped everything that came before the late '70s when it comes to sheer terror.

I am from a younger generation and did not see some of the pre-1975 horror "classics" until the naughts, and believe me THEY HAVE NOT HELD UP.

PSYCHO is the only exception I can think of.

I laughed my ASS off at ROSEMARY'S BABY ("Hail Satan!") and the potty-mouthed Linda Blair in THE EXORCIST, spewing fake, green vomit when her obviously fake, mannequin head wasn't spinning around.

This shit may have terrorized America before America had seen anything better, but the best of today's horror flicks can be MUCH more efficient than obsolete or mere "chilly" movies from history.

I respect the creep of THE HAUNTING and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I love the James Whale FRANKENSTEINS and Bela Lugosi has his charms.

But even these pioneers weren't honed, unlike modern filmmakers who benefit from their collective best parts. They're not relentless, realistic, photographically and editorially efficient fits of pure terror.

Please see JAWS, ALIENS, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, SEVEN, THE HITCHER, PITCH BLACK, THE THING (1982), Spain's [REC] or the American remake QUARANTINE, HOSTEL, WOLF CREEK and CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2003 if you haven't.

That's not even counting the Not-Super-Scary-But-Chilly-and-Artful horror movies like:

28 DAYS LATER

28 WEEKS LATER

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3

THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE

THE ORPHANAGE

PREDATORS

THE RING (Japanese)

THE GRUDGE (Japanese)

THE SHINING

THE FLY (1986)

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D

THE LOST BOYS

THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN

HELLRAISER

It also doesn't count the Kind-of-Scary-But-Mostly-Entertaining-Comedies-With-Great-Scripts like:

EVIL DEAD 2

FRIGHT NIGHT and its Collin Farrell remake

SCREAM

DRAG ME TO HELL

BRIDE OF CHUCKY

SEED OF CHUCKY

SLITHER

SHAUN OF THE DEAD

ZOMBIELAND

ATTACK THE BLOCK

PIRANHA

A CABIN IN THE WOODS

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON

The SAW series is more disgusting gore than terror, but richly made and literarily provocative.

Stephen King's stuff isn't the best at sheer terror, but it's always great storytelling with great characters and plenty of creep. Movies based on his work can be artistically beautiful in the right director's hands.

The FINAL DESTINATIONS are neither scary, nor believable nor funny enough.

I find the "found footage" movies to be cheap, unscary gimmicks for the most part.

OP, you may not like THE DESCENT as much as me, but I do share your liking of the HILLS HAVE EYES remake and HAUTE TENSION.

Since you liked HILLS/TENSION, stay away from that director's boring mess MIRRORS.

I have a feeling you will like HOSTEL and last year's THE COLLECTION because like HILLS, they're hugely entertaining "Revenge Violence on the Monster," action-porn movies.

Very entertaining but you may be tempted to watch COLLECTION's predecessor THE COLLECTOR, which is ludicrous and nowhere near as satisfying as the sequel. Same thing goes for HOSTEL's sequels -- avoid!

I also favor the Swedish, original version of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN.

It's scarier, funnier and more entertaining all around.

The American version sucked the emotion right out of it like a vampire to its victim, turning in a slow, understated meditation with some truly preposterous-looking CGI at times.

Hollywood usually INCREASES the entertainment quotient and believability when it remakes foreign genre films. That a tiny, European art film has more heart, life, character and voice is really saying something.

That said, either version is worth seeing.

There's nothing funny about Rosemary's Baby, what happened to her and the ultimate outcome of it is all very disturbing.

The Exorcist is quite scary indeed, but for me it's the opening scenes in Iraq with the dig, what's dug up and that ominous standoff in the desert with Max Von Sydow and that devil/gargoyle statue. Those initial sounds in the attic, Chris finding the Ouija board, hearing Regan talking about "Captain Howdy" and watching her gradually be taken over by the demon are the scariest aspects of this movie for me.

"Eden Lake" was really scary!

There was this bizarre movie with Amanda Plummer as this crazed lesbian who goes on a murder spree in England. IIRC, she is hitchhiking, then kills one of the men and takes his care.

I don't remember the name of tnhis film. I can't even find it in her listings at IMDB! This film was so creepy! She's wearing this heavy bicycle chain across her naked body under her clothes. During her murder spree, she manages to pick up some innocent woman, a cashier at some roadside convenience store, who joins her on her mission. I only saw this film once on either IFC or Sundance, it was never shown again, it was quite disturbing and very scary.

Yes, the French version of "The Strangers", "Them" was excellent. "Audition" was just plain creepy. The orginal "Funny Games", excellent!

"Wolf Creek" was great, the original "The Hills Have Eyes," which I saw in a movie theater when it first came out. Last year I saw the Antonio Banderas film "The Skin I Live In" on cable, it was an excellent thriller!

"The Last Broadcast", was basically the blueprint for "The Blair Witch Project".

Most of the Asian horror movies are excellent: I really enjoyed "The Eye", "Ringu" etc.

There was one Asian horror film with a tallish handsome Asian man playing a police detective, that was excellent, of course I don't remember the name of this film either.

I do remember, most of these films were on IFC and Sundance.

r134, it's called 'Butterfly Kiss", I looked it up from your description. I just typed in "Amanda Plummer movie where she's a bisexual hitchhiker" and it popped up. I didn't look on her IMDB but it must be there. I just wanted to see if it was really difficult to find, it wasn't. It sounds interesting and I will watch it if I ever see it on.

Black Water- about killer crocodiles

Those stupid J-horror films have me convinced that every single Japanese person comes back as a vengeful spirit after they die.

'The Skin I Live In' was slow to start, but really disturbing as the story unfolded. Not really "scary", but a really good film to see.

I wonder why OP never told us which movie he chose?

I guess Datalounge judgment is the scariest movie of all!

Loved Drag Me To Hell.

I think it had a 90 or something on Rotten Tomatoes which made me go.

I think about the movie every time I'm in a parking garage which isn't too often. Check the backseat -and bring a stapler!

Diabolique - the original with Simone Signoret and Vera Clouzot. Creepy from beginning to end.

r142 Did you think it was scary or did you just like it in general? I didn't think it was scary at all but it was fun in a 'Army of Darkness' way.

Thought it was fun and cringe-inducing (R144) - in a good way!

Love horror movies that get you to honestly laugh and scream at the same time- and Drag Me To Hell did that for me.

r145 would like THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.

Or Raimi's EVIL DEAD 2.

Or Peter Jackson's BRAIN DEAD/ DEAD ALIVE.

I forgot to recommend an underappreciated, sci-fi/horror gem from recent years called PANDORUM starring Ben Foster.

If you're a genre fanboy, you'll love that movie and it IS very scary.

[quote]The Changeling with George C Scott and Trish Vandevere! Really creepy and unsettling.

I just got done watching this movie, and I found it cheesy and not scary at all. The director and actors were trying way too hard. Definitely a waste of time.

I saw "Sinister" recently. Very creepy. I recommend it. Available through Netflix.
