When I was young there was a made for TV movie called The Day After (1983 so I was 7)about what happens after a nuclear holocaust. It scared me for years. I was in my teens and I still remember being afraid to look out the back window of our house over the sink in the middle of the night because I was afraid I'd see the bomb explode.

As a young teen: Psycho. Holy hell. I couldn't take a shower alone in the house for weeks. Kept peeking out every few seconds to make sure no one was sneaking up on me.

As a young adult: American Psycho (hmmm... sensing a "psycho" theme here) -- it was just icky. Christian Bale was RUINED for me for years after that. The ways he killed those girls... ugh... horrible. I wish I could un-see that one.

Silence of the Lambs. I saw other scary shows as a child but hated being scared so avoided them until I saw that. We went to dinner after the show and I had to check behind all the toilet doors before I could go to the toilet at the restaurant.

I saw Jaws as a young child and it forever ruined swimming in the ocean for me.

At the time I first saw Silence of the Lambs, I was renting a big old house that had a root cellar/pit in the basement. I was so freaked out, I quit doing my laundry down there and dragged everything to the laundromat until I moved out shortly after.

It's funny the movies that scare people and don't bother others. And I don't mean funny laughing at anyone, more just it's curious. Like the Exorcist, Psycho, etc. I can watch those the same as if I were watching the Disney channel. I think I am just desensitized to horror movies, I've loved them since I was a kid.
But there are definitely movies that disturb me in some ways.
Like the remake of The Hills Have Eyes, there's a scene in the trailer with the two sisters and the mutant cannibals. I won't go into detail, but it's the only movie I have ever walked out of.

Andrea it is weird that some people have no issues with scary movies and others do.

Movies like Friday the 13th or Halloween don't bother me but I can NOT watch Saw or Hostel type movies even in the daytime.

For me Children of the Corn and It are two that Scared me the most. Children of the Corn (though really not that scary) for some reason freaked me out as a kid. Think my sister's taunting had more to do with that.

The original "Dont Be Afraid of the Dark" with Jim Hutton and Kim Darby s ared the beneebers out of me in the 70s!

I thought the remake was pretty good and very scary, but it didn't terrify me like the original. Of course, the original didn't terrify me either when I watched it a few years ago LOL.

I LOVE LOVE scary movies! I get so excited when a new one comes out! But I have to say 'The Fourth Kind' really freaked me out. The new one with the chick from the resident evil movies. The scenes from the interviews give me the willies.
And the first two Paranormal Activity movies(I haven't watched the other ones, had enough with the first two).

A stupid made for TV movie from the early 70's that scared the crap out of my Jr self. Watched in my living room WITH THE LIGHTS OFF and a couple of "oh did it scare you when I grabbed you" friends. VERY scary then.

My parents were weird and let me stay up to watch those cheesy scary movies late night Fridays. They'd go to bed and leave me to watch at 6 years old. There was one called "Gargoyles" that gave me nightmares. We lived in the middle of nowhere with a landscape very similar to the movie, so I was sure there were gargoyles roaming around outside my window.

As an adult, at the theater the Blair Witch Project didn't freak me out. It was when I was at home that night and needed to go downstairs in the middle of the night for some meds. I walked past the basement door and swore I felt darkness pouring out of it. I hoofed it back upstairs as fast as my jiggly self would take me. I can feel the chills today.

Psycho shower scene...even still if I have my eyes closed too long in the shower I prepare myself for a nightmare when I open them. Also, Amityville (sp) Horror. It was supposedly based on a true story. The scene when the girl is swimming at night...I still get creeped out swimming at night.

But I'd say the scariest one for me -- or at least the one that affected me the longest -- was The Exorcist. I was a teenager and went with my dad who also loves horror movies. My mom, smart woman, stayed home. I remember going to bed that night (on a different floor of the house from my parents' bedroom) and being CONVINCED that my bed was shaking. Finally I got my sleeping bag and went and slept on my parents' floor. I think I did that for a week before I went back to my own room. I've never watched that movie again. And even after all these years I remember that movie whenever I take visitors to the Exorcist steps in Georgetown.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I could not get that DVD out of my house fast enough.

And last year DD got me a copy for Christmas, which was probably payback for getting her a copy of It, which is her scary movie.

Children of the Corn! I watched it when I was home alone after my mom told me I couldn't watch and I and had nightmares and couldn't tell her. "They're coming to get you, Malachi!!"

I wanted to watch The Day After SO BAD but my mom wouldn't let me. Everyone else in my class watched it and I felt so left out. I was 11 or 12.

We have often asserted and we affirm it yet again that no fact in history is better attested than the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It must not be denied by any who are willing to pay the slightest respect to the testimony of their fellow men. That Jesus, who died upon the cross, and was buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, did literally rise again from the dead. (excerpted from Dance Your Shoes Off, Second Baptist Church)

There was some kind of rapture movie I saw in school; I think it was shown on a weekend by a religious organization who rented the auditorium. It was about a woman who wakes up and finds out the rapture occured - was it maybe called "Left Behind" ? I don't know but that movie horrified me; still does.

I can't watch Exorcist! But probably the movie that scared me the most was, "When a Stranger Calls"```"Listen to me. We've traced the call... it's coming from inside the house."

I was a teenager when that movie came out and it terified me.

Oh my gosh, I laugh at myself for it but War of the Worlds actually scared me. The part where they are trapped in the basement and that guy just loses it.. It just got under my skin.. Something about that whole part of the movie just bothered me. Isn't that stupid?! Not the aliens killing everyone, not the blood filled river or the alien in the lake.. what bothered me was the part where some guys loses all hope and humanity and just breaks... I guess I'm just weird.

I love scary movies - love the adrenalin (sp?) rush. My sisters & I have Scary Movie Nite every Friday the 13th.

That being said, there are a few that I don't think I can sit thru again. Evil Dead (the original) really scared me. Any movie that can actually happen completely freaks me out. Cujo, for instance. Blair Witch is another. While it probably couldn't happen, Paranormal Activity scared the crap out of me. Top of the list would have to be The Strangers. My DH travels a lot, so that one particularly gets me.

TREZmom, I actually stayed at Camp Crystal Lake! It's a Boy Scout camp in our area and DS's troop stays there every year.

enjoytotheend, that is too freakin' funny! Not to mention something my sisters & I (not to mention my dad) would totally do to each other!!

Helter Skelter - based off the true manson story. Scared me for months.

Also The shining. I had to turn the lights on and start doing something else (cross stitch I believe) just so that I could finish the movie but I couldn't just keep watching it, too scary for me.

OMG! I loved this movie as a kid. It was a movie of the week. I have a copy of it around here because I wanted to see it again, but I'm afraid it will lose the scary magic it had! We used to tease my dad because his name was Bernie and that was the first name of the guy who played the lead gargoyle.

I've been looking for a copy of this movie Force of Evil

This dude gets out of prison and terrorizes the family of the judge who sent him away. They keep trying to kill him and he keeps coming back, making you wonder, "What *is* this guy?" Creeped. Me. Out.

The Exorcist is the only movie that made me miss a night's sleep.

I think it's also generational. I noticed a lot of people of Andrea's generation are not scared by the stuff that scared people of my generation because special effects were very new. I know young people who've seen The Exorcist and laughed because they are used to effects like in SAW, The Walking Dead, etc. They've seen tons of possession movies. The Exorcist was a big deal because it was the first time a young girl had been portrayed so graphically as a victim of the devil. Prior to that, no one had heard a child spew that kind of language in a film. It was extremely disconcerting.

I don't think as an adult there has been anything that truly frightened me. I've jumped, but not been truly frightened or disturbed beyond the time in the theatre.

P.S. to Andrea: The remake of The Hills Have Eyes? The remake? WIMP!

Signs. Alien stuff creeps me out immensely, and the whole psychological component just reduced me to shreds. If I wake up at night and have to use the bathroom, there is enough ambient light so that I don't need to turn on other lights. For the longest time, if I had to go at night, I was just convinced that some invisible alien was going to stick its fingernail out at me and gas me. (Not that the movie had anything to do with bathrooms, but it's just the semilight situation, I think!)

My Mom saw movies like Psycho and The Shining when they were original at the theater. And she is always telling me she took showers with the curtain pulled back. lol And I can understand how at that time, those movies were so intense. And while they don't bother me, I can totally appreciate them for their importance and ingenuity at the time. I really love some of those classics and have most on DVD.

The one that scared me the longest I cant even tell you the name of. It was a special on HBO and I saw it when I was in grade school (maybe 4th grade?). I am now 39, so about 29 years ago!

It was about a family that was camping in the woods and some escaped convicts came upon them , held them hostage, killed the parents, and went on the run with the kids.

I remember my parents told me I could not watch it so one weekend when I was staying up late after they had gone to bed I watched it. Turns out my parents were right. I was terrified of someone breaking into our house, killing my parents, and kidnapping my sister and I for YEARS afterward!!! I still think of that stupid movie from time to time now and get a very unsettled feeling.

The first Paranormal Activity movie has been the one that scared me the most. Movies about supernatural things really bother me anyway and the scene where they are in bed at night and the girl gets up and just stands by the bed for hours totally and absolutely freaks me out EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!

I always run down the hallway and jump into my bed so nothing 'gets' me.

Not so much any particular movie since I tend to avoid that stuff, but there was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that had these creepy floating bald guys in suits. To make it even creepier, the entire episode was silent.

It's been over ten years but still creeps me out thinking of it.

It, I never liked clowns and after that I wouldn't go to a circus if you paid me! Gee, maybe that is why my kids have never been

I also was scared of The Birds and have always been afraid of birds getting too close to me.

I found the exorcist seriously disturbing as a teenager, and found the Ring and the grudge disturbing more recently.

This sounds daft, but towering inferno frightened the life out of me as a teenager as well- I have had a horrible fear of fire ever since and was so happy when smoke alarms became available!

It's not the passage of time that heals. It's what you do with that time.
