Here's one of mine. She's so creepy and beautiful at the same time!

Do you know what movie this is from?

All horror movies frightened me as a Kid.

I am constantly horrified by TV programming today.

I'm afraid of the people all around me who are enjoying the TV shows of today (and I don't even get cable).

If our entertainments are any indication, we are one sick and twisted society.

I include myself because I do watch some of this stuff like Elementary and Castle. Sometimes, despite liking the characters, I get so repulsed I have to quit watching in the middle of a story.

You can keep your Horror Movies.

Chessman,
One of the creepiest stories, full of frightening images, is "The Drop of Water" story from Black Sabbath ("I tre volti della paura" in the Italian version) from 1963, directed by Mario Bava. Doing a Google search for

"black sabbath drop of water"

will bring up some scary images of the dead witch ... this was the *only* film I ever recall that made me cover my eyes in a movie theater (hey, I was 8!). If you watch it, I'd recommend getting the Italian version, even though subtitled - the American version has some cuts and re-arrangement of scenes.
Mario Bava did some wonderfully creepy movies - check into "Black Sunday" as well ("La maschera del demonio", Italian version) if you get the chance.

The gif above is from "Brides of Dracula". Good movie!

Well I can't remember one. I think they were all a bit lame when we were kids.
The ones today are better. The effects today are really real.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Mary: well, thank you.

I feel strangely at peace in not responding to you.

That said, I hope that future posters will not respond to the sermonette, nor my reply, but post according to the title of the post.

I'm fine with that.

Sorry for derailing your thread Chessmann.

One of the creepiest horror films I've ever seen, visions of which still haunt me, was Regan's (Linda Blair's character) demonic head turning, voice, language, speaking in tongues, and other frightening effects in The Exorcist. And I was twenty-six at the time! That was one frightening movie.

In all honesty, nothing really creeped me out as a kid. To this day, the Exorcist remains as my all time scariest horror movie, mostly because the mere thought that demonic possession could be real is a frightful one.

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Two Hammer Films...

"Plague of the Zombies"

The graveyard scene that starts at about 58:00 to 1:01:10 put me into orbit.

"Dracula Has Risen from the Grave" was my introduction to Christopher Lee's portrayal of the Count, and in my opinion, probably the scariest Dracula EVER on film.

Not a horror film, but this image from the TV show, "The Outer Limits" made me bury my head in the couch until my parents turned off the TV. Ha-ha!!

I wasn't often frightened at horror movies... even as a kid, I was always able to keep in mind that the movie was just a product of a human mind.

The one notable exception to that was the Nightmare on Elm Street series. (At least I-III. I kind of outgrew them after that.) As a kid (and for that matter, as an adult) I often have problems sleeping, so a sleep-related bad guy really terrified me. In a good way.

An honorable mention goes to the movie Se7en. At the end, I wasn't so much scared as I was... disturbed. Really disturbed. In a good way.

My earliest memory of being terrified at the movies was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We saw it at a family drive-in. The lightning scene scared the bejeebers out of me.

The only one I really remember bothering me was when I went to a double feature of Empire Strikes Back and The Shining at the Drive-In when I was three. I fell asleep after Empire and woke up a few times during The Shining. Images that have never left my mind are the tricycle scene and the blood river.

There was a science fiction film (I want to say "Journey to the Seventh Planet" but I can't find it listed) which had me under the seat when I saw it in theaters. The end of "The Fly" creeped me out when I saw it on television.

Oh, here it is;

Probably the part in the omen 2 when Damien embraces who he is and just burns everything down then it ends!

The EXORCIST.

*** near EVERY scene.

I made the critical mistake of sneaking into the theater at 12 years old.
Had no idea what I was in for.
Traumatized to say the least.
These were the days LONG before CG effects and desensitization to violence and horror.
The movie scares the hell out of me to this day.
Ugh.

There was one episode of Fantasy Island.

Really... It had a ghost theme that episode.

The image of the silhoutte of that man atop a mountain stays with me till today.

Definitely The Exorcist ... lots of scenes ... Prior to seeing the movie, I had read the book, which was even scarier!

Michael mentioned the Hammer Films ... watched loads of those and loved 'em all.

For me, there are two other really scary movies that stand out. One is The Legend of Hell House. The other film is Prince of Darkness.

And for a more subtle kind of scary ... who can forget Rosemary's Baby?

I was a freshman in college when I first saw Todd Browning's Freaks.
Never been the same since.
