Now that Halloween is almost here, what scary movies are you thinking of watching? I'm going to give the original The Evil Dead another try now that I have the Blu-ray. I couldn't get into it the only other time I tried it, but maybe this time. Cloverfield, Drag Me to Hell, and Frailty are possibilities. I also picked up this title on a whim after reading about some of the crazy stuff in it:

Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl (Amazon.com)

Seriously, read the customer reviews that are there and tell me you wouldn't watch it.

I don't usually go for movies that actually scare me. What about you? Are you going to watch something that might actually give you nightmares, or are you going to go for something lighter? Or will you choose based on what will sound best on your system? The Hellboy movies could work. Any superhero movie could work for Halloween, too.

I’ve never met a “scary movie.” They always just seem to contrived. The only thing I ever watched that scared me was an old episode of “The Outer Limits” that I vaguely remember having vampire like creatures on a spaceship. Had nightmares about that one for a long time. Everything else since, that was suppose to be “scary” just seems silly.

I wish I could say that, but I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to movies. Kind of sad, but I'm more visibly emotional when watching movies than when reacting to real life.

So you haven't tried looking up that episode and re-watching it? Maybe that should be your Halloween. smile

So far, it's only the SAW moves that I find a little hard to watch.

The only movie that ever scared me was "The Excercist". It still hits a nerve with me even today. It really is a remarkable piece of film making.

I never was much of a fan of slasher or zombie movies, at least they never scared me, I like psylogical thrillers much better. Silence of the Lambs is a good one.

A good SiFi monster type movie is always fun to watch too, like AVP or even Jurasic Park.

The Grudge or The ring had some interesting moments also.

When I was about 8, and I saw Forbidden Planet on late night TV one weekend, the invisible monster in it really made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I bought a copy of this a few years ago and watch it occasionally, but it's just not the same anymore.

Unfortunately movies don't scare me anymore, miss that feeling as a kid watching Aliens...terrified. Alien abudctions used to scare the hell out of me as a kid, but when I watched 4th kind last year I couldnt help but dissapointed. The most new age movies do is gross me out, "Drag me to Hell" is a perfect example, disgusting old lady!

I was really disappointed in Cloverfield. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I liked Cloverfield, but I'm a sucker for found footage flicks. But our votes cancel that movie out.

I recommend [•REC], the original film that Quarantine was based on.
