    Re: Scariest Movie You've Ever Seen...

    I remember a movie where George C. Scott moved into a really big house in Seattle. He was all alone there, and he started hearing noises. Like this big, loud, booming sound. And there was something about a wheelchair, and a kid, and I think a necklace.

    I saw it a long time ago, don't remember what it was called. But it scared the crud out of me.

            So many scary moments to this movie --




            Possible spoilers below --













            The scene with the medium: "Did you die in this house?"

            The banging in the pipes...

            The original SCARY VISION IN BATHTUB!

            The appearance of the wheelchair at the top of the stairs!

            The little boy's vision at the other house--

            The face of the dead man in the broken mirror--


            Just thinking about this movie gets me scared again.

              Anybody see the remake? Did they try to copy the original first act and if so, was it nearly as scary as the original?
              My younger brother saw this movie and when I asked about it he told me it was a horrible remake. I never bothered seeing it after he told me about that. I think the difficult thing about that movie (from what I remember in the original) is that because the setting doesn't change much throughout the movie that it's hard to sustain fear the entire movie, you know? It's great to start and gets worse and worse because of that. The new one supposively didn't succeed in fixing this so... guess it's still not the best horror movie, but I agree that the first 20 minutes are good (don't think scariest in the history of horror, but good) though.

                The Shining and The Changeling... saw those when I was a kid... they left a lasting impression.

                A recent movie, that challenged my emotions was SAW. I got sucked right in and felt what the characters were feeling. Good story and backstory in this flick. It worked.

                  Fun with Dick and Jane, the Jim Carrey version. I don't think I will ever be able to go to the theater on Christmas day again.

                  How about The Exorcism of Emily Rose? Creepy more than scary. All those contorted faces and the lawyers. Wow....

                    It's more then difficult for me to say what is the scariest film I've ever seen since there's a number of films I think are worthy of the title. I can say though that the most disturbing film I've ever seen is probably "The Exorcist". It certainly has some of the most potent and visceral imagery on celluloid.

                          I'm glad to see how many people saw The Changeling and thought it was super scary. I had been thinking it was sort of obscure or that other people who saw it would not think it was as frightening as I did.

                          Thanks to Minibrain for reminding me of the title so that I can see it again.

                              There are three that scared me the most. First was the original "The Haunting". Julie Harris makes this movie terrifying. A couple of years back, when my daughter was 12, she had a slumber party around Halloween, and we screened it. Of the six girls there, only two were awake at the end, and they were literally holding on to me for dear life.


                              Carrie scared me a whole lot more than I thought it would - so much so that when I was walking home from seeing it, I was sure that a hand was going to reach out of the ground and grab me.

                              I stupidly watched the Ring on an evening when I had to sleep next to the t.v. because we had redone the bedroom floor - one of the worst nights of my life.

                              On a different note - if you want to see a horror movie that is actually quite funny - go see the remake of the Wicker Man. My son and I were laughing our heads off, while my husband sat in shocked silence ( I guess I should have warned him about the human sacrifice part).

                                All I can think of right now is the scene, in the re-cut version of The Exorcist, where Reagan (spelling?) comes down the stairs using the "spider walk."

                                It was just so unexpected, the first time I saw it, that it really creeped me out.

                                They were not able to include it in the original cut of the film because they did not have the technology to hide the cables that held her up (according to what I heard or read). By the time of the second cut of the film, the technology had evolved.
