I watch a lot of horror/monster movies.
Over the years I think I have become immune to the scare.
I've seen movies that scare others and I know of a few that will scare some people.
Most normally scary movies are rather comical to me.

I ask you to vote in the poll and then list the movie that you think is the scariest.
Hopefully someone will list a film that scares me too, I doubt it tho.

I'll try to list some of the films that I think might scare you.
It will be interesting to see your responses.

This pertains to films you have seen after you became an adult (18+).
Childhood scares don't really count. All children are afraid of scary movies.

The genre is not really important. The fact that it scared you is.

If there is a type of film that you enjoy,
Like slashers, monsters or situational threats, list those as well.
I love monster and creature films, not because they are scary but because
I like looking at all the different designs that are used.
Alien monsters are cool to look at too.

The only movie that I can remember being really scared from was the original Alien movie. Watching it these days I know what to expect but when that movie came out in 1979 I was 9 years old and my Mom, knowing that my brother & I were into sci-fi geeky stuff, took us to see it. She did not know what kind of movie it really was. The chest burster scene... at 9 years old. Oooh, I still remember it. I guess the good part about it is that horror movies never really scared me after that.

Yup, childhood scares are the ones that set the tolerance.
Mine was The Creature From The Black Lagoon.
The make up and creature effects were amazing.
I remember when I first ventured into the horror genre.
I refused to watch slasher films.
Not because I was scared but because the depravity was repulsive.
Now, I see them and imagine the work it takes to get the shot.
The sight of blood doesn't phase me but the smell of blood is sickening to me.
Universal's Monsterverse promises a new Black Lagoon creature feature.
While I probably won't get scared I am looking forward to it.

The Seasoning House was horrifying but not scary, there is a difference.

It's one of the more interesting questions asked around horror circles Tom, and yet there is no single answer as to what makes a movie unnerving for some and not for others. For example my wife is absolutely terrified of werewolf movies, no reason for it, but have noted a couple of other female friends down the years that also couldn't handled the whole transforming thing.

The problem for modern audiences, i.e teens, is that you need to suspend disbelief to get the full impact of horror, oh it helps if a Director understands you need to really like the characters before they are put into peril.

Movies that unnerved me, from memory

The Exorcist

The Ring

The Evil Dead (original)

Paranormal Activity

Session 9

See, that's my problem. Very little unnerves me anymore. In movies, shows or even in real life.
I watched some of the Guinea Pig films. Plenty of gore but I found it interesting what they must have went thru to get the shot. I didn't watch the complete series because I plain old got bored with it all.
Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox were just more gore and equally as boring.

I like the concept of werewolves but care little for transformation sequences. I find them boring.
I'll take Dog Soldiers over American Werewolf in London any day, or night.

I flat out LOVE monsters.

I wonder if Universal is pushing forward with the rebooted verse since Tom Cruise's The Mummy underperformed.
As far as I know it is still being pushed and the next entry is already being filmed. Its really late here right now but I'll look and see if I can find a source on it when I wake up.

UHM said:
Casting for the Bride is currently underway. (5/22/17)
Producer Alex Kurtzman had a recent interview where he talks a bit about the current script by David Koepp, saying: "David Koepp wrote a brilliant script. A brilliant script with a very unique structure and a central relationship that I think is gonna be relatable to a lot of people while also being very true to what I believe people love about Bride. Here’s the weird thing about Bride Of Frankenstein. It is one of the weirdest movies you’ll ever see in your life. It is such a strange film. What amazes me is that the bride doesn’t show up until, what, the last ten minutes of the film? Doesn’t say anything, rejects Frankenstein, he pulls a lever and the building explodes and that’s the end of it. It’s not like she has long monologues, it’s not like you get to know her character, it’s not like she goes out into the world. There’s almost no screen time with her." Adding... "And yet everybody remembers the iconic look, the hair, who she was. Articles have been written, there’s Halloween costumes. It’s an enduring character because there’s something mysterious about her and that look, and the idea that she was created to serve another man. Which is gonna be an interesting thing to tackle in this day and age. It might be something we subvert in our film. It will be really interesting to see where we go because I actually think that Bride is maybe a lot more accessible as a character than you may think. Mostly because she’s not really a character yet based on the original Bride Of Frankenstein." (6/10/17)
Director Bill Condon was quoted saying: "I’m very excited to bring a new Bride of Frankenstein to life on screen, particularly since James Whale’s original creation is still so potent. The Bride of Frankenstein remains the most iconic female monster in film history, and that’s a testament to Whale’s masterpiece—which endures as one of the greatest movies ever made."
Actor Javier Bardem will play Frankenstein's Monster.
Written by David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Stir of Echoes, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit).
Directed by Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast 2017).
This is part of Universal's new "Dark Universe," where they're rebooting the classic monster films from their library and intend to have them all link together with common characters, similar to what Marvel has been doing with their superhero films.
This is a remake of the classic 1935 film with the same name.
Personally, I think Universal is locked into at least one more film due to announcing the Dark Universe project publicly. Just like Legendary is locked into the Monsterverse.
I didn't really have a problem with The Mummy just like I didn't have a problem with Batman becoming The Dark Knight or the darker Superman. I think the public prejudged the film with predjudice against Tom Cruise because of hiw ties to Scientology. Personally, I don't care for Tom Cruise but he has been in some pretty well made films lately.

Bride of Frankenstein (2019) Movie: May. 23, 2017 - changed the production status to Pre-Production - Movie Insider

Storyline
A young woman attending college is haunted by someone else's memories, and she gradually discovers that she died and was then unnaturally brought back to life.

I'm a right pansy when it comes to horror lol...

I can cope with most Vampire stuff (odd I know) but horror as a genre I tend to stay away from. I can't even watch Supernatural without my head being messed. Off the top of my head some movies/books I've tried to watch are...
The Exorcist
Carrie
The Ring
Amyteville
Supernatural (got as far as season one)

For me it has to be the movie called "The Grudge". You need to see the whole movie to get the whole story but basically these Ghosts are killing others out of a twisted revenge on others for no real reason other that to cause death and destruction on others for revenge of themselves being killed. Sorry to me there is no reason to harm another, especially if your own death happened because someone else did evil on you. Why do that, what benefit could that actually bring anyone? Watching this movie so greatly enrages me to such and high feeling of injustice it really disturbs me.

Here is one seen from the movie:

The Ju-On films generally revolve around a curse created in a house in Nerima, Tokyo when Takeo Saeki, convinced that his wife Kayako was having an affair with another man, murdered her, their son Toshio and Toshio's pet cat in a jealous rage. According to Ju-On, when a person dies with a deep and powerful rage, a curse is born. The curse gathers in the place where that person has died or where they were frequently at, and repeats itself there. The spirits of the deceased haunt the location, potentially killing anyone who encounters the curse by any means, such as entering a cursed house or being in contact with somebody who was already cursed. The curse's manifestation is mainly death, where the victims' bodies may or may not disappear. The following deaths may create more curses and spread them to other locations.

The franchise consists, to date, of 12 films (9 Japanese productions, 3 American)

Shimizu stated in an interview that the inspiration for Ju-On came from his own personal fears as a child, and from a Japanese dance group that would paint their nude bodies white and perform. Shimizu found the performance frightening and decided to "paint [his] ghosts white". He also mentioned that the rise in the number of domestic abuse cases emerging in Japan during production of his previous films gave him ideas about the origins of the story.

I have the American films and 2 of the Japanese films
Gotta go look for the others to complete the set.

The Grudge and The Ring never really scared me or caused a reaction?
I see movies as productions of art.
I often wonder how long and actress or actor has to sit still for the make-up to be put on.
