A real good thrill and some shuddering.

Thank you

are you getting the beasts box set? they're scary.

PortBlacksandResident Sun 15-Jun-08 10:29:32

Black Lace are reforming!!!

Oh - you didn't mean like that.

suzywong Sun 15-Jun-08 11:19:52

oh good call se, I'll put it on my Amazon list

but what about NOW?

suzywong Sun 15-Jun-08 13:30:31

anyone else seen anything that scare the shite out of them lately?

cornsilk Sun 15-Jun-08 13:36:04

I thought 'I am Legend' was scary. Am I soft?

Message withdrawn

I am Legend just made me sad sad

I like 28 Weeks Later and The Descent had me constantly on the edge of my seat, but can't think of anything more recent.

Will have a think...

all right, cornsilk, no need to shout

The 9th Gate, Pruners. Got it. It is a bit shite but my boyfriend spends a lot of time shirtless in it so it's not all bad.

I dunno why the need, I just like it.

Are you looking for spooks and devils, or psycho killers? Not that I can recommend anything sadly, but if anyone comes up with good psychos I will add em to my list.

I want something to match the likes of
What lies beneath
Silence of the Lambs.

If you're looking for spooky - Ghost Ship was quite jumpy in a really crappy schlocky kind of way.

GeoffWode Sun 15-Jun-08 15:43:16

Totally agree with whoever said The Descent.

I nearly shat myself.

This is very old but very scary Rosemarys Baby.

suzywong Sun 29-Jun-08 03:22:52

I think last night I found what I was looking for
The Orphanage

it has everything, even a scary kid in a sack mask.


falcon Sun 29-Jun-08 10:24:31

I'll second The Orphanage, also another Spanish horror by the same director I think, ''The Devil's Backbone''

Candyman is pretty spooky, though also very gory, but it seems much more arty and well thought out than your typical slasher movie and I love the score by Phillip Glass.

falcon Sun 29-Jun-08 10:26:09

Exorcist 3 is very spooky, and may have the best jump scene ever.

suzywong Sun 29-Jun-08 10:33:06

Yes, yes the Devil's Backbone!
It seems to me there is a sub-genre of horror based around Spanish Children's Homes - The Others was produced by Spaniards.
Probably a throw back from Franco's time
I love 'em

Thirty Days of Night will scare the shit out of you.

southeastastra Thu 03-Jul-08 22:56:41

there was a run of spanish horror on bbc four lately films to keep you awake what is it with spain!

they were fab though, have you watched beasts yet?

themoon66 Fri 04-Jul-08 13:34:40

30 days of night has the most evil and realistic vampires. Stuff of nightmares. And I don't usually scare that easily.

mrsfederer Sun 06-Jul-08 22:01:31

Same here moon. I was on my own overnight in the house when I watched it.

Big mistake.

wuzzlefraggle Fri 11-Jul-08 11:01:40

Agree with the Decent.

I'm dying to see 30 days of it really scary then?

suzywong Fri 11-Jul-08 11:12:23

thanks for the link, ses
yes I have watched beasts, that mummified baby ogre is as fresh today as it was 32 years ago. LOVED Pauline Quirk as gormless checkout girl. I did titter at the Dummy one though.
I think the League of Gentlemen should preface everything they do with a nod of thanks and awe to Nigel Kneale who wrot them all.

southeastastra Mon 14-Jul-08 18:42:31

it's great isn't it, though simon maccorkindale splashing about in the bath made me lmao a bit.
wonder why it's never re-shown, on the hunt for similar things.
