What's the last movie that scared the crap out of you?

I mean, really scared you, to the point where you're nervous walking into dark rooms, or have to sleep with the light on?

Reading the reviews of Shyamalan's new movie got me thinking about this. I loved The Sixth Sense, but that was more creepy than scary to me. Signs was okay, but didn't scare me in the least. I don't scare that easily as a rule.

For me, the most recent movie that scared me would have to be The Mothman Prophecies. I won't spoil it, but that scene early in the movie when they're driving at night? Around the time that I watched it, I was taking a night class out of town, and had to drive down some really dark rural roads late at night to get home. For a couple of weeks on this one particular stretch of road, I was so scared, I had to phone people so I'd have someone to talk to while I was driving on it.


Last night they loved you

To be honest I'm not much of a fan for the horror genre precisely for the fact that they never scare me or surprise me. I've watched movies people have recommended for being "really scary" and have never flinched...[which is funny cause in real life I would be the biggest scaredycat I'm almost sure ]

But if anyone has any suggestions on a good scary movie I'll be more than happy to rent it and give it a try

I'm sorta jaded by horror movies by now...I just watch them for fun because they're easy to laugh at ....

But for as long as I can remember i've been scared of Freddy Krueger, but I'd never seen a single movie he was in until two years ago...yeah I was scared of him even though I'd never watched a movie...anyway the first one I finally watched was Wes Craven's New Nightmare...and I guess the whole possibility that somehow Freddy could truly be brought to life just because people believed hard enough, and all that jazz...just scared me beyond words...I couldn't sleep the next few nights...I mean come one...FREDDY GETS YOU WHEN YOUR SLEEPING

I actually closed my eyes during Saw 2...something I tease people for doing....but it was more because I was so grossed out that I was near leaving the theater because I was afraid I was going to vomit.

As for actually being scared...when I watched House Of 1000 Corpses late at night while home alone...I had a really hard time trying to fall asleep after.

Probably 'The Ring'. It's been forever since I watched any scary movies.

I don't like to watch scary movies coz I'm such a scaredy cat but the last one I did watch, just out of curiosity to see what all the fuss was about and coz I think Anthony Hopkins is a brilliant actor, was Silence of the Lambs!!

The last movies that really scared me were "Nightmare On Elm Street" and the original "Exorcist". Both of those movies stayed with me for days after watching them.
I remember seeing the first Nightmare movie at the theater, afterwards me and my friends were looking under the car and in the back seat before we got in. I was so scared to go to sleep, I slept with the light on for about a week after seeing it.

The Exorcist I saw when I was a young kid. My parents told me not to watch it because it would scare me. So of course I didn't listen to them and watched it anyway. Sometimes parents can be right about things, that movie scared the crap out of me. It still scares me to this day. Plus I never have looked at split pea soup the same again. Every time I see it I automatically think of Regan. Living close to D.C. now, I have gotten to take my picture on the stairs where the priest falls down, in Georgetown. Talk about getting the heebie-jeebies.

I can't watch a scay movie home alone at night. No way!

Me too!

The movies that scare me the most are the ones that could be real like Silence of the Lambs. More disturbing than scary.

Kiss the Girls with Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman is disturbing/scary.

I remember when The Exorcist was rerealeased into theatres when I was in high school several years ago. It was the first time I had seen it. I drove home with the interior lights in my car on and I called my mother from the driveway to come and get me and bring me into the house. I was terrified to go in my bed after that!

I watched a Japanese movie called Suicide Club, and its unreal level of suckitude was plain frightening.

It's worth renting, mostly because there is a scene in a bowling alley involving this random glam-rock blonde dude in what is possibly the biggest WTF moment in cinematic history.

Bambi when I was six. I don't get scared in scarey movies. I'm missing that gene.
