October...and the scariest horror film of all time is?

It's that time of year when we're inundated with horror films both at the theatre and on tv. So what's the scariest/best one you've ever seen? The one that wouldn't let you sleep at night, or if you did...only with the lights on?

For me the choice is easy...The Exorcist. I saw this at the theatre a long, looooong time ago, and got so scared that I've never been willing or able to watch it again. I know my fear is irrational. If I were to watch it now, it probably wouldn't scare me because I'm older and the make-up/special effects...which were good at the time...would probably seem as dated and cheesy as the rubber shark in Jaws (still a great movie in spite of this). Guess I'm too big a chicken to find out.

ooh yeah the shining

I haven't seen it for years, but Halloween was definitely up there when I was a kid

I know lots of people think it's shit but The Blair Witch Project also disturbed me somewhat

I only saw the Exorcist for the first time a couple of years ago, and I didn't find it scary at all. Disturbing, yes, but not scary. But a lot of my friends think it's truly terrifying

It has its scary parts but it's so slow! You can't help but try to press the FF button.

"Poltergeist" gave me nightmares for a very long time. So did "Poltergeist II."

"Nightmare on Elm Street" was pretty scary--he gets you when you sleep!!

"The Sixth Sense" and "Signs" were the most recent ones to keep me up.

For me I would have to say the Exorcist. I won't watch alone.

Don't feel bad. I got creeped out just hearing The Exorcist theme song playing in the ads for that new Exorcist pre-quel. In fact, any horror movie involving Satan/demons freaks me out. Monsters, etc. can always be killed...sure they pop back up again while your back is turned...but eventually they die.

House Of 1000 Corpses does horrible things to me every time I watch it.

The Blair Witch Project really freaks me out. Being 11 then and living in the woods at the time was not the best combination.

I had nightmares with "Poltergeist/II" and "The Shinning". It was hard getting some sleep when I saw "The Sixth Sense", but this is not a terror movie. It just got me thinking... might have been the last one I saw. I'm avoiding this king of movies.
