Here's a good example. Me and a mate got invited to the movies to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose. After about five minutes, I was determined not to watch it I convinced my mate to get up and walk out with me, and buy tickets to the 40 Year Old Virgin.

I love almost all scary/horror/gore/thriller movies. (I give every genre a chance anyway )
The only exception is religious scary films. I have a real problem with them some time. I think the only reason I saw The Omen was because I knew David Thewlis and Liev Schreiber were starring in it and I wanted to see the original one with Gregory Peck first.

I don't know if I'll ever watch The Exorcist or Stigmata.

The religious ones are the most frightening of all of them.

Ehh, I wouldn't say they are frightening. I just don't like the idea of toying with God in that sense.

It's not like I was scared while watching The Omen (or Fallen, or The Devil's Advocate, or any other religious scary movie I've seen), but it just didn't feel right.

Zombie movies are A+ for me though.

Not big on horror movies here either. I mean I can watch some of them but I pick mostly thrillers. Watched the new Halloween recently with friends and man, it was scary! Actually more like... brutal violence that makes you feel sick inside. Pointless other than giving ideas to immature people watching this stuff and picking up an axe to see how it feels like to hack somebody to pieces!

Second row right... hm.

I hate most modern horror films, with a couple of exceptions (the original "Halloween" and "Silence of the Lambs" are two of my favorite movies ever, although I have to cover my face with my hands and peek through my fingers during a couple of scenes in the latter).

I refuse to watch "torture porn" movies on general principle.

I have never worked up the courage to watch "The Excorcist." This is partly due to the fact that my cousin who can watch hard-core gore without flinching couldn't stomach it, and partly because I have a feeling my Catholic upbringing will make watching it even more scarring.

Have never tried, never really plan to.

It took a fair bit of courage for me to see Fight Club.

I was always scared of seeing Pulp Fiction, but my friend said to me that if you've seen Fight Club, you can see Pulp Fiction.

But I will fight tooth and nail if someone wants to put on a movie like that. I love reading the blurbs and reviews, strangely enough, but can't stand the movies.

The next movie on my "gotta try and work up the courage to see" list is the one with Anthony Hopkins (the fava beans and chianti one - silence of the lambs??)

Anyone with me?
I very much know how you feel. Extremely violent scenes (especially ones I'm capable of inflicting on another human being and therefore terrified of committing) really frighten me. Over the top violence isn't scary, but any cutting of limbs in the Sopranos or Scorcese film is terrifying. The Fight Club scene in which the guy punches the guy almost to death was terrifying, as was the oral sex scene in "American Psycho" and the bottle scene in "Pan's Labyrinthe". I wish I could erase that kind of violence from memory. That said, I absolutely love Season 1 of Millennium.

Cool.

Even though she was part of my childhood nightmares .

When the zombies were dancing they didn't scare me . . . it's just the parts before and after when they're lumbering around and moaning

The dance though, is awesome
