Default Scary movies

I have no idea why I do it to myself- I used to love horror films, now in the dead of night I replay them all in my head and end up hiding under my duvet scared shitless! I can no longer get the tube late at night (creep) I can't go potholing (the descent), can't go for late walks in the park (american werewolf in London), can't stay in hostels (Psyho/Hostel) and can't go waterskiing ( jaws).

So any other horror buffs on here?

Top 10 scary/horror films;

The ring
Creep
The descent ( I actually screamed out loud in the cinema)
Se7en
Hostel
Psycho
Jaws (classic- although watching it as a 6 year old I wouldn't sit on a toilet seat for about a month as thought the shark might come up the u bend)

ok I'm keeping 3 spare for other peoples suggestions

I hate horror films... I was severely traumatised when I realised that Event Horizon wasn't just a sci-fi...

Jaws is a complete classic...in my DVD collection!
Even though I have a severe phobia of sharks I just love watching it.

The Exorcist will always terrify me.The first time I saw it I was 13 and I stayed up all night eating spoons of coffee to keep me awake with my Mums bible by the bed.

Anything to do with the devil scares me to death....I wonder why?

A chunk that were remade, if you go see the original Japanese/Chinese/Korean/Thai versions...much better.

The Spanish original to Quarantine was pretty good, sequel less so unless you watch it as a double bill.

Pre-Poltergeist I used to swim in the pool in the late evening in Riyadh, with dodgy underwater lights which only illuminated one end. Post-Poltergeist I didn't.

now that is a proper evil film.

For me, thrillers do my head in more than slash and gash horrors. What Lies Beneath did my head in for ages and that's not even suppose to be that scary.


edit: My favorite film is The Shining... awesome.

The first NOES was indeed a classic. And Halloween.

Kittycat, American Werewolf in London is a comedy!!!

Nobody mentioned Alien? Not a typical 'horror' film but the tension was astonishing.

Scariest single moment in movie history? The final scene in Carrie.........
