    Hi Ghouls and Goblins,

    Seeing as Halloween is approaching . . . . What do you think is the Scariest Film Ever? :knife

    I think its The Thing. That bit where the doc has the paddles on the guys chest freaked me out! :sick

    First time I watched Poltergeist was a bit... err... scary. Mind you, I was a heck of a lot younger...

    Carrie was AAAARGGGHHHH as well, especially the bit at the end... :ohmy

    Well, I watched Event Horizon the other day, and that's still pretty scary.

    Films that really gross me out to the point I can't watch them are things like Saw and Hostel.
    Things like Nightmare on Elm St I can handle, but it's not really my thing.

    Poltergeist freaked me out when I first watched it.

    The Japanese make the best horrors imo

    So it's probably the grudge or the ring for me.

    Some good films mentioned already! Loved the Hellraiser movies, love anything that mixes Sci-Fi with Horror like Event Horizon (think Sam Neil is ace) and the Polterguist films had their moments but I just can't look at them the same since watching that Family Guy episode of them ha ha

    Mouth of Madness was had some scary bits :eek:

    Did anyone else watch the TV series 'Dead Set'?

    OK, it was funny - but still with some great zombie moments.
    It was set during a series of Big Brother where the world outside the house was taken over by zombies without the housemates realising.

    It was really good.

    That's the one.

    He's my role model - but he's not quite miserable enough yet.

    At the risk of hijacking the thread, did anyone see 'Games Burn'?
    It was on last week, but it's probably been on before.

    Yep

    Brooker's a hero of mine. Thought Games Burn was OK - but not as goos as Screen Wipe

    Same here, was amusing as a one off, but that was about it. I met him years ago at at PC Zone stand at some computery expo os some sort at the NEC. Played Rise of the Triad against him and David 'Fragmeister' Mcandless on the small network that had going there. :)

    As for Scary, Dead Set wasn't, it was funny.

    Back to the OP, I saw The Thing round at a neigbours on a pirate video in the early 80's. Was quite young and it scared the sh*t out of me. :) Great film though. Shame Carpenter hasn't made a decent one in a long time.

    In The Mouth Of Madness was pretty good - the last decent Carpenter I've seen.

    Yeah, Sam Neill, good actor and not a bad film IIRC. Tbh there were a lot more misses than hits on all of his post 1990 stuff. Looks like he may be re-making both Escape from New York & They Live. Both classic John Carpenter at his best. :)

    There is no horror film in existence that hasn't scared me schnizless. I have a very jumpy disposition.

    I mainly put this down to sitting on the stairs, when told by my Mum and Dad not to come downstairs because they were watching a scary film, and seeing far too much of "IT" for any 5 year-old's liking.

    Hell, I even still get the jitters watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And the X-Files bugs me out something chronic.

    That being said, that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good horror flick. It's just a shame that the genre at the minute seems to abound with ill-efforts and remakes. There are so many good computer games that would have made entertaining horror flicks. Unfortunately, someone called Uwe Boll happened to the film industry, and the rest is history :dry

    But favs? Thirteen Ghosts is hilarious. It's the horror film I've jumped at the least ever, mainly because the first time I watched it, I was cloaked in a protective haze of drunkeness. By default, because of the experience above, I still have to say IT lol.

    Probably is 'Night of the Demon' for me.

    Not a fan of modern overly graphic or sick horror films. Too much real world gore for me to spend my leisure time watching it.
