Here's a couple of scary ones for you..the original Cat People and Ten Little Indians. In both of these the horror was implied and not shown to the viewer,thus allowing one's imagination to work

I thought the Blair Witch Project was quite effective - that, too, built tension on a psychological level, without resorting to gore and special effects.

Yes.I enjoyed that one also The new crop are terrible films! Iwouldn't look at Saw for any amount of money, I did like the Evil Dead series,the third part in particular..Bruce Campbell is over the top

I got trapped into watching an Art House showing of “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,” and couldn’t escape

That was the scariest time I EVER had at the cinema.

But I don’t think that’s what you meant.


There was also the time when I was 10 years old, that I sneaked downstairs to watch Boris Karloff as Im-ho-tep in the 1932 version of “The Mummy” on a local television station’s Fright Night feature.

The Lost boys is one of my absolute all time fav's!

I also like the early 90's film " Child of Darkness, Child of Light". NOt all that scary, but creepy

The Grudge was like that too. It and the ring are the best newer films I've seen

I saw An American Werewolf in London in the theatre when I was 12 or something like that...and the first time he changed, with Bad Moon Rising in the background, and you could hear his bones cracking...well, I nearly shat...

Still one of the best metamorphs I've seen on film...

I don't know about you, but after "Jaws" came out - I couldn't go swimming in the ocean anymore - ever. Lots of people felt that way - remember?

for me it was Amityville Horror....... I was 8 or 9 yrs when I saw it, I In the movie alot of events in the house happened at 3:15 a.m. , and my body some how tuned into that. After that I'd wake up at that time at tremble under my sheets until I fell back to sleep. To this day ( I'm 36 ) I still occasionally wake up at EXACTLY 3:15, not scared anymore just instinct.( ???)
I guess you could say I was somewhat tramatized for life!
I don't think there were ratings for films in the '70's.....they let us in the theatre and drive-in to see all kinds of movies we probably shouldn't of been viewing .
