Halloween always freaks me out but the one with that makes me jump the most is insidious grin

I've seen Annabelle and really can't understand what the fuss was? Anyone else feel it was a major let down?

Ring

Well that sticks out in my mind

i'm more scared of unseen things, so I really like the original The Haunting and lately have seen Borderlands which frightened the hell out of me!

Oooh, yes, The Ring was brilliant! Babadook is also really good.

Buggers Fri 20-May-16 19:12:13

I've never seen the ring I'll have to try it.
Ah just remembered one that kept me up for days! When the lights go out - for some reason it terrified me!

I don't think I saw 'The Ring', which I think is American, I saw the Japanese one, which I think is just called Ring.

The other horror that sticks in my head is also Japanese but I can't recall the name (think there's also an American version)

The Grudge?

Mrs Doubtfire.

Hideous in every way.

Anything with Meg Ryan. Horrifying.

That one with the couple in bed and something keeps coming in the house and they set up a camcorder and there's footprints in the flour or something.

I'm hazy on the details as I watched 80% of it on fast forward as was so scared.

Paranormal?

southeastastra Fri 20-May-16 19:19:03

paranormal activity wtfis

MyBreadIsEggy Fri 20-May-16 19:19:25

The Strangers shit me up for a long time and I refused to answer the door if I wasn't expecting someone. What happens in that film could happen to anyone confused

MakingJudySmile Fri 20-May-16 19:19:36

The Grudge. That's what the other one is called.

The Omen trilogy are my favourite horror films, but the scariest one I saw at the time was Blair Witch Project, mostly because I watched it on my own in the dark.

Newes Fri 20-May-16 19:28:47

Insidious, although the sequels are getting silly.
Sinister
The Grudge
Dark Water

MadHattersWineParty Fri 20-May-16 19:31:12

It Follows.

It's creepy. Like, look over your shoulder creepy.

VulcanWoman Fri 20-May-16 19:43:30

The Shinning.

Thebookswereherfriends Fri 20-May-16 19:48:37

Dark water (the Japanese version) is terrifying! I had to mostly watch through my fingers. In fact, all the Japanese horrors I've seen scare me silly.

Insidious is scary and the first Paranormal activity.

QueenMolotov Fri 20-May-16 19:49:29

Event Horizon
Hellraiser
1402 (An unusual choice, but I found the ghost re-playing his own end and the protagonist being powerless to help really scary)

QueenMolotov Fri 20-May-16 19:50:10

And agree about The Shining.

coughingbean Fri 20-May-16 19:50:41

The babadook
Sinister
<shudders>

MakingJudySmile Fri 20-May-16 19:50:51

You're certainly not wrong Thebookswereherfriends, it seems the Japanese make excellent horrors!!

elQuintoConyo Fri 20-May-16 19:51:38

The Orphanage
Pan's Labrynth
Dark Water (original version)
The Fog (1970-something, John Carpenter)

I saw the Fog when I was 11. Big mistake. Huge. I think watching it now brings back memories of being scared back then.

But what I can never watch again and shudder about 20 years later is an episode of X-Files called Home.
