Erm.... Too many to count.

I love all Horror flicks.

Alien was the best. That thing, ripping up out of that guy's body makes me jump, every time that I see it.

A really bad TV movie, "Kingdom of the Spiders", freaked me out, too. I HATE spiders!

"The Haunting (of Hill House)", too, the old black & white film starring Julie Harris and Claire Bloom. It was much creepier than the remake with Liam Neeson and Mrs. Michael Douglas (I can never remember her name). The book is great, too. I think it was written by Shirley Jackson, who also wrote "The Lottery".

A very bad "B" movie called "S-s-s-s" is very scary. A mad scientist is turning people into snakes, with poor results. Of course, he gets his, in the end.

The one scary movie that stands out. . . . because I was so young and impressionable when I saw it. . . . is the "The Birds" . . . I think it's an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

It isn't my favorite by any means but the one that made the biggest impression was the first Poltergeist. I was allowed to watch it when I was around 7 and staying with a lax babysitter. I had nightmares for months! I still can't listen to static on a TV without getting a shiver actually.

I'm much more into thrillers than horror. Silence of the Lambs being one of my all time favorites...that's pretty spooky, does it count?

All time Fave scarey movie....

The Exorcist! I can't watch it by myself even today when I know what is going to happen next.

My favorite is definitely "Nightmare on Elm Street". The first one was the best. Freddy is the king of horror.

Ok, don't laugh: Cat People (with Natasha Kinski). It was probably the only scary movie that ever gave me cat jumped on my bed the night that I saw it and I actually screamed.

The Excorsist to me wasn't scary at all!

The Ring gives me goosepimples(quote from rat race)

Same here for the same reason Ghost stories is what scares me. "The Others" was very good and also the one with Bruce Willis as the psychiatrist to the little boy (can't remember the name of the movie). They are movies with not so much effects - they let you imagine most of the scary parts and think about them afterwards.

I can't remember the name of the movie but I remember "I see dead people."

"I see dead people" is from The Sixth Sense.

Night of the Living Dead.

I always get this confused with Return of the Living Dead. Return of the Living Dead was what i meant to put down. that movie scares the crap out of me, which is why i dont watch it often!

sixth sense was great! M. Night Shyamalan is one of the new masters of suspense. Signs also. Nightmare on Elm Street (got the boxed set) was awesome. Poltergeist, Excorcist were spooky!!

I love scary movies! I actually wrote a research paper in college titled 'From Psycho to Scream: The Evolution of the Slasher Film.' That was a fun one to research!

Some of my favorites:
Night of the Living Dead
Nightmare on Elm Street (1st and 3rd movies)
Friday the 13th

And these, all based on Stephen King stories:
The Shining
Salem's Lot
Carrie (not really scary, but good horror)

And I really want to see '28 Days Later' but my husband doesn't like scary movies and I don't want to go alone. So I need to wait until my sister can watch it with me.

The Haunting is one of my favorite scary movies

Suzy, Is there any way I could read your research paper? Horror (Movies or written stories) is a passion of mine, and I always like to read theory or critisism on the genre.

I really don't have a favorite scary movie, but some of the ones I like a lot are:

Nightmare on Elm Street (1st)
Scream (1st)
The People Under the Stairs
The Shining (Although I'm more partial to the miniseries)
The Ring (And Ringu, the original)
The Sixth Sense

The Ring (a definite must see)
Maximum Overdrive (I don't know why but something about that movie gives me the heebie-jeebies)
Pet Semetary
Cujo (This movie mad me sleep with the lights on for weeks when I first saw it when I was a kid)
