I've seen a lot worse, but horror films are my favourite. So that wasn't scary for me.

EyelinerQueen Tue 25-Mar-14 10:11:08

I'm with ICan.

As a horror aficionado that film is pretty lame.

Yep, that scared the shit out of me shock I am a wuss so perhaps not the most reliable judge thanks for the link op, I'm sure I''ll be thinking about this when I'm driving home from work down the dark country lanes blush

I think it won some awards or something. Very clever what they've done in such a short space of time!

scarletforya Tue 25-Mar-14 10:15:05

I'm not going to look. RL is scary enough for me!

Marrow Tue 25-Mar-14 10:18:39

I have seen this before. I'm not sure why it is thought to be so scary. It didn't frighten me and did not seem to be very atmospheric.

ColaConkie Tue 25-Mar-14 10:20:09

Nah, didn't scare me. Very tame compared to what I am used to.

BeverleyMoss Tue 25-Mar-14 10:24:03

You are a chuffing wuss.

grin

'2am: The Smiling Man' is better, it's based on a creepypasta story. Was more weird than scary though.

I can't link unfortunately as on iPad :/

softlysoftly Tue 25-Mar-14 10:27:25

hate horror films, get scared for ages after and that gnome thing was truly ick but no sorry you are a wuss,

thegreylady Tue 25-Mar-14 10:28:11

If you watch it with no sound it is boring. That ending is so common too- some sort of shock following the build up.

UnicornCrisps Tue 25-Mar-14 10:29:37

It made me jump at the start but it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. The end ruined it imo. I'm usually a wuss!

Worryingwombat Tue 25-Mar-14 10:32:15

Oh shit thanks guys I crown myself queen wuss!!!

Impatientismymiddlename Tue 25-Mar-14 10:33:17

Sorry, but I didn't find it scary at all.

Worryingwombat Tue 25-Mar-14 10:34:19

Ohh thanks for the 'smiling man' info I have read the story off to find the video now!!!

Will update on my wussy ness after watching it !!

SapphireMoon Tue 25-Mar-14 10:35:23

Not watching it!
However, years ago watched strange short film on late night tv. Probably over 20 years ago, [maybe 30!!].
It involved a phone box. People would get in and find not able to get out. Film follows a man who gets into phone box. He starts off calm and then gets more and more distressed. He is then taken away [phonebox and all] on back of a lorry. Eventually arrives at a sort of telephonebox graveyard. People dead, trapped in boxes, some with cords round their necks. Haunted me for ages!!

TulipOHare Tue 25-Mar-14 10:35:41

Ah, it made me jump, OP grin I shall join you in the wuss corner.

I am very susceptible to this sort of thing!

TulipOHare Tue 25-Mar-14 10:36:17

Sapphire that is La Cabina, really good! It's available on Youtube.

BraveMerida Tue 25-Mar-14 10:36:21

I am so wuss I dare not click on the link.

Can someone please describe what happens in it and why it is supposed to be scary without my having to see it.
thanks

It's freaky but not all that scary

And the look a like chucky doll thing at the end is a major let down.

Found it!

Not sure if I can watch it again. Would it scare me now?!

Actually, I prefer reading horror to visual horror so this two sentence horror stories scares me. I find stories 4 and 10 the scariest.

pianodoodle Tue 25-Mar-14 10:50:56

I like it! Reminds me of that bit from The Grudge (Japanese version) where she's hiding under the covers.

Not quite as scary though. The wee boy in that film is seriously creepy!

Impatientismymiddlename Tue 25-Mar-14 10:52:43

Am I the only person who can't help but think that if you suspected somebody was in your flat you would go and check all of the rooms thoroughly rather than stick a bit of tape on the light switch?
