Anyone got any recommendation of good scary films? I haven't seen one that's actually scared me for a long time.

The vanishing

Exorcist still freaks me out to this day. Would never watch it alone!

Paranormal activity in the cinema scared me too. However I've seen it since and it's not had the same effect

The Descent and Descent 2.

MingZillas Sat 23-Jan-16 20:09:42

The Conjuring as well.

Insidious was a bit scary and the one where they move into a house because the dad writes crime books.

Hairy do you mean sinister? That was good

Eden Lake. Brrrrr.

Sinister is a good one

I didn't think Sinister was that good or scary but The Conjuring really did scare me and I won't watch it again confused

Black Christmas from the 70s

Shuttle... 2009, I thought it would be a pile of but the end stayed in my heebie jeebie part of the brain.

And broken which kept me in a high state of anxiety all the way through.

Pet Semetary freaks me out. The book and the film. My husband can't watch The Ring as it really freaks him out.

The Ring is pretty scary. Just when you feel sorry for her you realise she is actually truly hateful. Nice and arty too.
Depends what you find chilling though.

The Ring (Japanese version)
A Tale of Two sisters (Koren version)

The Shining
The Exorcist

The Blair Witch Project

The Woman in Black. Much as I love Daniel Radcliffe I had to watch the whole thing through my hair, hoping and praying that my chum would want to leave the cinema. And then I got a cab home as I was too scared to wait at a deserted station. Proper old school scary.

Gamerchick - do you mean Broken with Tim Roth in it?

And I don't know if scary but plain uncomfortable, you can't beat the original Evil Dead.

Ilovenannyplum Sat 23-Jan-16 20:19:42


I had mentally blocked the ring out, that was really creepy. I threw the DVD away after I watched it, I didn't want it in my house! wimp

That and the grudge. Both binned.

Peevedquitter Sat 23-Jan-16 20:20:37

I watched a film on Netflix called Shutter, very freaky.

Agree with The Descent and The Conjuring.

StopLaughingDrRoss Sat 23-Jan-16 20:20:40

X-post with your link grin Very different film!!

StrattersDD Sat 23-Jan-16 20:20:41

I love stuff like The Conjouring, I've seen almost every single one of these blush is it possible that I've seen all the good ones? shock

I found Hostel and Saw disturbing.

I know they are old now though
