Wolf Creek was terrible - but I'm going to see Wolf Creek 2 when it comes out anyway.

Jaws scared me as a kid, and still have shark phobia, but I think that's because I come from WA where Great Whites tend to snack on people often.

The Excorcist, saw it as a teen when it first came out
The Shining had its moments, but the book was far scarier.

(I'm also very against incorrect punctuation--if you can manage to use four punctuation marks in succession that's definite browny (Brownie?) points.)

Do you want to add 'people who answer in the wrong thread'?

Salems lot was quite scary, the vampire scratching at the window scene.

Can remember watching Candyman and being scared,and also the first Scream movie scared me, then they just got ridiculous.


Also the one with Jason with the hockey mask..cant remember the name, Nightmare on Elm street was good too, the first one anyway.

I used to cry behind a cushion watching the original Frankenstein, I always felt sorry for him.
".....Frankenstein, I always felt sorry for him....."

Classic Error No 459: Frankenstein is the scientist - the creature doesn't have a name (I think)...........

Yes, your right

However, he does call himself when speaking to his creator, "The Adam of your labours.

He is also variously referred to as a "creature", "fiend", "wretch", "zombie" "devil", and "ogre" in the novel.

I Frankenstein, the movie is coming out January 2014 starring Aaron Eckhart

Aaron Eckhart? As the monster presumably, not the scientist.......?

Has anyone mentioned The Woman In Black? (Daniel Radcliffe film that is on OSN Movies every five minutes). Some genuinely creepy bits in that (although Deanetta says the stage production, which I didn't see, was far scarier - genuinely terrifying).

I am the other way round, not seen the film but did see the stage production, it was well scary!
