Posted:Wahoo! found it! Well, asked on some film forums anyway

The film I was thinking of is The Legend of Hell House and it was released in 1973.

I find it very odd that the only film I've found properly scary is 29 years old - before all this cgi malarky started taking over I suppose, the fear of something you have to imagine and don't see is greater than anything any cgi wizard can come up with.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:The scariest movie I ever saw was gremlins, (when I was 5).

From that time on there...

- Were things under my bed (only when the lights were off), necessitating me to jump from halfway accross the room to get into bed at night!

- Were monsters hidding behind doors and in the dark.

1 still haven't recovered!


I don't like living below the tropic of Capricorn..... and now I seem to be in England...... how did I get here???

Posted:I did not find it that scarey either, although when she came out of the well, and the way she moved was horrible but the only scarey bit in the whole movie, I thought.
Its ghosts and zombies that get me. Has anyone seen a film called The Woman in Black? It was a play before but it was on at Chistmas years ago when I was younger and I still get the fear thinking about it now.
And zombies/mad crazed people are the most terrifing and hidious (sp?) thing ever! I hate them, cannot watch a film if they are in it, which is a shame because I really wanted to watch 28 days later but couldn't cos I knew I would not be able to cope with it!
I really enjoyed the Texas Chainsaw Massacre though!

Posted:Just thought I had better say I found the Texas Chainsaw Massacre abviously horrible and disgusting and utterly terrifing, but in a fun way, not a 'I can't turn my bedroom light off or be alone now' kind of way, which I find that ghost stories or zombie movies do to me!
Blimey, I just did not want people to think I found Texas Chainsaw Massacre funny! Although there were people in the cinema who were laughing out load at the really horrilbe bits and I found that odd and kind of more disturbing than the film itself!
Right I'll shut up now

Posted:I agree that Ring is not a scary movie in the jump and core factor.

Worse that that..

It messes with your head.

After watching the film Kota started teasing me and did the jilted crawl over the Tatami.

Could not get the image out of my head. Now usually I find real life more scary but this film got inside my head and freaked me out. I think that is what so many people find scary! You don't breathe properly for a week after watching it.

I saw the Japanese version (no subtitles) in Japan and watched subtitled version last Halloween. The subtitled version is not too awful. Nothing too profound is said anyhow so you are not really missing anything.

If you want to see another superb but disturbing Japanese film watch Battle Royale. Its an excellent movie

Posted:Who here's seen Jason X?

It would appear the makers of that movie took it about as seriously as they assumed we would... I was LMAO the whole time, esp when he had the holographic girl in the sleeping bag and was smacking it up against the tree! "We just love beer and premarital sex! Ow! Ow!"

You guys have got me curious now, I'm gonna check out The Ring tonight and see what I think of it... I'll be back with my opinion in a day or two

that movie was pretty freaky.
I would have been freaked out if i had to catch an alien in my cupboard.
The poor kid.
I is a wonder he lived through that movie, esp
when he had that claw grab his neck.

Posted:If you want to see a movie that is just F*cked, check out Tetsuo the Iron Man. It isn't exactly a horror movie, but It will definately screw with your head. It's a japanese import kind of along the lines of anime, but with live actors. Be warned that it is not for the meek. If you found any of the old Nine inch Nails videos distubing this movie is not for you.

Posted:But you didn't mention the great Australian tradition of tight-arse tuesdays, Valura. Tight-arse Tuesdays are when you get the cheap tickets at the movies, they are all the same price, about $9.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:if you didnt find ring scary then what is scary, iv seen alot of movies, but ring is the only one that has crapped me up, there are also two sequiles to it, ring 2, and ring O, they are both even scarier than this, yes ok it doesnt have the in ur face jump factor, but it does have the psychological scare factor, and you wont like what u dream after this. please, i need some people to understand how scary it is.

Posted:OMG! You people are SICK!

You ENJOY giving yourselves nightmares for three weeks? I see fear as a *bad* emotion. I don't understand people who go to movies to deliberately evoke that emotion!

And yet there's an industry that makes billions a year off of scaring people silly for their own amusement! I just don't get it!

There are five basic emotions: love, happiness, sadness, anger, and fear. When I go to a movie, I like to walk out feeling one of the first two!

Posted:You can still walk out of a cinema feeling either love or happiness even if a substantial part of the film is full of sadness, anger or fear, it's just got to have a decent ending.

Take Disney films, they usually run something like this:
Happy intro to introduce the characters
Traumatic scene where someone dies or gets exiled
Filling scene to use up a bit of time and/or add a bit of drama
Climatic scary fight scene which the hero must almost lose, but wins eventually
Happy ending with lots of butterflies/fluffy rabbits/cute animals with huge eyes/cheering crowds

Actually, that's only the recent disney films - for example, the black cauldron is mainly dark with the hero being hunted throughout most of the film, but it still turns out good in the end

Anyway, the point I was trying to make before I got sidetracked by disney, is that I reckon the best films are those that, at some stage, have you feeling the whole gamut of emotions.

Posted:Horror movies are great. Jeepers Creepers was ok, but then when it was about half way through (about 60 minutes in) it ended and we were like 'wuh? is that it?'

Does anyone know that the girl who was in the polteghist films (very funny, full of 80s effects/shell suit weavers) had a heart attack and died after the 3rd one?

The only film i've ever walked out of was 24 Hour Party People. About 2 hours in about half the people had walked out because they were so bored and i felt it was time to follow suit. It was like watching paint dry!
