    The last Saw movie. They killed Luke. I was very upset.

    The most scared I was watching a movie would probably have to be Steven King’s IT. I was home sick one day from school and started watching it… when the skeleton hand came up out of the lake, my mom called to check on me. Had a huge rotary dial phone that rings REALLY loud. Have to say, it took a LONG time to finish that movie. I love scary movies… as long as whoever I’m watching it with (Hubby or Brothers) haven’t seen it to know the perfect time to scare me.

    House on Haunted Hill (it was also one of the LAST scary movies I saw.)
    I saw it in the theater, and they had the volume CRANKED up, and there is an underground underwater scene with a mouth full of teeth-it’s all a blur.
    I rented it with a friend once, and it wasn’t scary outside of the theater.

    One movie that I love, but that scared Dan and I both to death the first time we saw it is Devil’s Advocate, with Al Pacino and Charlize Theron, the scene where the women are trying on clothes and the woman’s face morphs scared us both out of our skin. Dan screamed and I cried! It was just really unexpected i think…

    I have never been scared by a movie. I’m usually too busy critiquing the directing or acting or special effects.

    When I was a kid, Poltergeist and the TV mini series V scared me equally. V was not bad except for when the alien/human baby is born, and it looks normal and everyone is so relieved – and then it sticks out its lizard tongue! EEEEEEE!
    Both of those films gave me nightmares.
    I can’t think of anything that’s really scared me as an adult, and I have gone back and watched Poltergeist and found it to be kind of funny, actually. Nothing that comes close to the weeks of nightmares that these two films gave me.

    30 Days of Night.

    Went with friends… screamed aloud 20 minutes in. I don’t know that it was really that scary–I have this uncanny ability to immerse myself into books and movies, and suspense thrillers kinda do me in.

    I walked out and a hung a left into the next set of double doors-ended up watching Dan in Real Life. I am guessing no one had seen Dane Cook’s stand-up yet.

    When I was a kid I had nightmares over Gremlin’s! I was so scared when I first saw it that I watched the whole movie from under the movie seat!

      My best friend when I was in middle school was terrified of Gremlins. It put her off of Christmas trees for a long time.

    When i was in 2nd grade, a friends parents went to sleep and left the TV on. We ended up watching a Hitchcock movie about a little girl who’s dall woke up and they were friends… her mom took the doll away not believing the daughter… so the little girl took the doll into the woods and the girl turned into the doll. Having lots of dolls at my house and at my friends house, we were freaked out for weeks!! Couldn’t tell our parents WHY b/c we should have been in bed.

    The Exorcist hands down scariest movie ever! I don’t know if it still scares me as an adult because I am too scared to watch. The original Amityville Horror scared me too, probably mostly because it is supposed to be based on a true story and that makes it super scarier! I mostly watch comedies and romance. I really don’t find being scared fun at all.

      I found that movie really interesting but not scary at all. What’s wrong with me?

    • Shannon said,

      I’m with you Marlo. I once read a magazine article about a demon posession, and just the article gave me nightmares for days. I’ve never watched the Exorcist or Amityville Horror just for that reason.

      I once heard that hauntings may often be attributed to a gas leak in a house. Everyone in the house begins to suffer brain suffocation, and they begin to hallucinate wildly, and they think the house is haunted. In a way that’s comforting to know, and in a way it is not. I know if I ever live in a haunted house, the first thing I’m going to do is have it tested for a gas leak!

      ditto marlo! the seventh seal, or whatever that one was called, and rosemary’s baby-both of those scared me to death.
      apparently 70s horror was doing something right!
      i don’t watch scary movies at all anymore, cept maybe the scream series, cause they’re so funny.

    30 Days of Night was probably the last scary movie I watched…or, rather, hid under Tim’s arm because I was too scared to watch it. And, we watched this while eating our wedding cake on our 1 year anniverary…Yes, my husband is a hopeless romantic.
