Letting go of a loved one is hard, but sometimes it is the only way to survive a rock climbing catastrophe

The Peanut Butter Solution, the f*cked up movies they used to make for children

Rohan Keezey said...

Idiocracy. It's supposed to be a comedy but it's more like a glimpse into our not-so-distant future.

helloworld said...

signs... i’m such a scaredy cat and i’ve been terrified of aliens since like, birth.

Brooklyn Girl said...

Intensity, a TV movie based on a book by Dean Koontz, by the same name.
Scariest because it is about a cop who is a serial killer.
Very scary because it is not monsters or sci fi. It could be real.
Just chilling.

sandybrook said...

It's a toss up between The Exorcist and Jaws.

who framed roger rabbit when i was like 11

Brayson87 said...

The Peanut Butter Solution had the ghosts of burned alive homeless people, childhood baldness, toxic potions, extreme hair growth, social isolation, kidnapping, child slave labor, etc.

BarelyAwake said...

Rudolf. Snow monster almost ate our hero.

OB said...

The Exorcist. I saw it when it was released (I was 14, big mistake not to heed that "R" rating), ran to the lobby at that middle scene, and have never been able to watch it all the way thru since

Ophelia said...

I have to be the one to throw out Human Centipede cuz I think I watched it almost 10 years ago & am still traumatized by it haha

Zebra Seasoning said...

When I was younger, my gran took me to see a special showing of "Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein." I did NOT like it, it scared me witless.

B626 said...

Trilogy of Terror
Karen Black

RowdyRodimus said...

Brooklyn Girl, I think a lot of the "unsolved" serial killer murders and abductions are done by cops who can get rid of evidence or have friends on the force that can so they get away with it

Farmgirl said...

+1 B626

Also Sophies Choice

MDAnderson said...

The Omen. Never watched another scary movie after that.

Tricia13 said...

When A Stanher Calls
The Original. Never friggin babysat in my life because of it

Kimberly Davis said...

Exorcist

Heather said...

Glitter

MSAB09 said...

At the time it was The serpent and the rainbow. It scared the shit outta me when I was a kid.

cece said...

Haha

notthisagain said...

its a tie between The Ring and Audition

notthisagain said...

oh also, The Brave Little Toaster is fucked up

notthisagain said...

and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with that creepy lollipop child molestor kidnapper wut dafuq

Groggy said...

+1 on The Omen, the original, with Gregory Peckory.

Also, the original Last House on the Left. The BJ scene is more than scary!

Zebra Seasoning said...

@notthisagain YES. That movie creeps me out even as an adult.

Mhdz said...

Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's one of my favorites now, but it did a number on me when I saw it as a kid.

kelli grrrl said...

BURNT OFFERINGS!!!!! That creepy-ass hearse/limo chauffeur messed me up!! Also, Karen Black.

Simon said...

Exorcist.

Florin said...

Probably the one that tickled my lizard brain the most was The Exorcist, but Where The Dead Go To Die squicks me out the most due to the material.

Andrea said...

The Collector because it's so plausible.

Moose said...

Misery - Kathy Bates was terrifying. And it felt like it could happen to anyone.

txredhd said...

Ditto what sandybrook said. Wait Until Dark was another scary movie.

Neil said...

Helter Skelter, because it actually happened.

SDJ said...

As a kid: 5,000 fingers of Dr. T. Particularly the Dungeon Elevator Operator. It was a Dr. Seuss musical for heaven's sake but it was like a scary dream.

Hillary's America.....

Valerie S said...

Don't Look Now - great movie with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.

Shaddup Mimsey said...

+1 Tricia with the original When a Stranger Calls. That was such a scary movie.

SeeDanRun said...

The Shining

DejaBlue said...

Wait Until Dark

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062467/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Gator said...

Manhunter, which was the original movie about Hannibal Lector, before the character became likable by Anthony Hopkins. VERY creepy opening scene.

Green Tea said...

The Day After.

I was 11 and too young to process it. I cried myself to sleep for weeks after thinking a nuclear war was imminent.

filmfanb said...

session 9

Me Again said...

Wizard of Oz scared the hell out of me when I was a kid.

Followed up by Trilogy of Terror, with Karen Black

American Werewolf in London

JRS said...

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Dane said...

Audition. The man in the bag freaked me out.

rosie riveter said...

The Skin I Live In
My best friend begged me to watch it, ITS GREAT he said ITS AMAZING he said, ITS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE he said.

Fuck you Ira. You're lucky I only quit you for 3 weeks.

Sal T said...

I found Jacob’s Ladder really disturbing. I love horror films, but they rarely get to me. Jacob’s Ladder wasn’t a horror film as such, it was more psychological thriller, but it still haunts me to this day. O/T I think that this was one of Macauley Culkins first uncredited appearances on film too

Also again, not a standard horror film but 8mm was creepy and unsettling (and not just because it stars Nic Cage!) The subject of snuff films and the underground market for films featuring illegal kinks was disturbing. I want to watch it again because it takes on a whole new significance knowing what we know now about Nic Cage (I wonder if this role sparked his interest in this area or if he already had an interest and was drawn to this film for that reason?) Plus the director was Joel Schumacher (Lost Boys etc) something else I didn’t realise when watching it previously. There have been rumours about Schumacher’s predilections for a long time, it’s also worth noting that Schumacher directed A Time to Kill - there was a blind on here about the child actors in that film being sexually abused by the production crew.

Sal T said...

The french film Martyr is also pretty messed up.

Ice Angel said...

The Serpent and the Rainbow. Went to see it in the theater with my friend and when we got out it was dark and pouring rain and it was the scariest drive two teenaged girls ever went on.

Ice Angel said...

@MSAB09 glad I'm not the only one that SATR freaked out!

@GreenTea - I was also thinking of that one-I too was about 11 and watched it even though the schools and everyone were warning not to let kids watch it. I am still messed up about nuclear war till this day

My oldest brother saw the Exorcist as a teenager and couldn't sleep in his own room for a month

My middle brother went with his friend to see Warewolf in London when they were teens thinking it was a comedy. They had to leave the theater about 15 minutes into the movie.

Tammy said...

The first Halloween movie. Hearing that music, gets me every time.

Bikey said...

Funny Games (the original by Haneke), a true masterpiece which I´d never dare to recommend (or watch again for that matter). Really, REALLY intense stuff.

James said...

Showgirls

klg said...

Baxter (1989 French film) A bull terrier is adopted by various families..and he is not happy about it..at all.

Cee Kay said...

Movies aren't scary. Due to my limitless imagination, lots of books are though.

Rob Horine said...

Return of the Living Dead!

Set in Louisville, where I live, idiots open drums with zombies inside, after mass zombies and brain eating, one of the 'good guys' dial a number that goes to a Col. He then sends off a nuke that takes out Louisville.

Growing up in the 80s, nothing scared me more than nuclear war.

GentleBreeze said...

The Birds. Saw it in the theaters. Was about 7. Slept with my eyes covered for quite a while. 1963's The Haunting - I will not watch alone.

greenfrog said...

Alien, the first one. Took me 20 years to be able to see it all the way through. The sense of foreboding drove me crazy

Aliens 2 I liked but also terrified me.

Hellraiser I barely made it through.

Jennacheryl said...

What lies beneath...

Freckles said...

The Exorcist and Hell House the earlier version

DDonna Tarttty said...

Some of these movies I saw on drugs, which I'm sure amplified my terror, but:

Exorcist
The Ring
Blair Witch Project
Event Horizon
2nd or 3rd "Paranormal Activity" (tho #1 was scary too), the one with the camera left on the fan that pivots back and forth.

p swer said...
