While putting this list together, I realized that what scares me the most are claustrophobic huis-clos...as 4 out of 5 movies fit in that category ... no, make that 5 out of 5 ...
4. In the mouth of darkness

A generally underrated masterpiece by John Carpenter. Bizarre, unsettling, incongruous, it is a difficult movie to summarize. What is scarier than starting to doubt your own sanity?

Directed by Robert Wise in 1963, this is probably the best ghost movie ever. It is also a lesson in movie making. With no special effects, no monsters, no blood...it is a film that will haunt you long after you've watched it.
So, what are your favorite scary movies? I could have added some others to the list like Alien, World War Z, some more Carpenter's films and George Romero's Night of the living dead. I am not much into gory/slasher films, I usually find them gross and not very scary...
Too scary for me! I'm definitely not made for these movies, too faint hearted! :)
I'm soooo bad with horror movies!! I can see war movies (one of my favorite genres), but horror movies are not my thing. Which is a bit weird if I write it down like this.
I do think you put together a very great list!! Horror lovers wil love it!
I haven't seen a horror movie in ages! Will get a start on that :)
Toooooooo scary for me!
I'll admit I have never seen those movies :-) The movie that most scared me was the Night of the hunter by Charles Laughton wis Robert Mitchum
Have not watched a scary movie in a long time. I think it is because I have become more scared when getting older. ;-)
yes! yes! I want to watch those!
Uuhuuu this is an interesting topic and it's definitely the season for it! The movies that scare me the most are those with ghosts, dead people and vampires. The scariest movies i've seen are "13 ghosts" and "Ghost Ship". For more than half of these movies i must keep my eyes closed. :D
