I was reading this “25 movies that will give you a panic attack” thing on Buzzfeed.
I havent watched most of them, and now I really want to! I must be a glutton for punishment, because I love being terrified and panicy from movies.
What movies make you feel this way? I need some new movies to watch!

I’ve seen parts of Bug, Zodiac, Black Swan, 127 Hours and Children of Men.
Out of the list, I do want to see Gravity, Hard Candy and No Country for Old Men though. Movies, off the top of my head, that I can recall making me feel uneasy were Kids and Once Were Warriors.

- Wedding: April 2013 - A court...
I saw parts of funny games though I watched the remake. And I also want to watch Hard Candy. Movie that made me feel uneasy was Old Boy. O_o

I’ve seen many of the movies on that list, and just reading over it made me feel a little anxious! I think Black Swan and Hard Candy were the ones on the list that I’ve seen that made me the most anxious.

I’ve seen most of them. Panic inducing? No. A few might be slightly more anxious but no where near panic. Awe, Ben does love sensationalism.

@Miss Circe: Eugh my first post was meant to say “I’ve seen Bug, Zodiac, Black Swan and 127 Hours, and parts of Children of Men.”

I tried to watch Hard Candy. I just couldnt get into it. Black Swan didnt make me feel panicy. Honestly I didnt see the huge deal about it. I was just confused most of the time.

@allyfally: I will never re-watch Requiem for a Dream, that’s probably the worst one on there that I’ve seen! I don’t know about panic, it was just so horribly depressing.

I can’t imagine a movie causing me to go into a panic, unless it was something that really really hit home regarding some kind of personal traumatic experience. I can see that happening maybe if you were brutally raped and then watched a movie with a rape scene or something along those lines. There are movies that make me cringe like 127 Hours, but Black Swan, United 93, Rachel Getting Married, and Zodiac didn’t cause me to feel any type of anxiety – at all. Requiem for Dream was crazy and definitely a good “don’t do drugs” lesson haha, but not really panic inducing.

Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds), an American truck driver working in Iraq, wakes up inside a coffin and struggles to find his way out. Few other films have managed to capture such claustrophobic horror: As time runs out for Paul, his desperation becomes the audience’s, and rooting for his survival transitions to serious panic.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is nervous about being in space, and with good reason: A freak accident leaves her separated from her shuttle and spinning out of control. Another Alfonso Cuarón film, Gravity puts you in the place of Ryan as she’s completely untethered: It’s breathtaking, but you also might find yourself gasping for air.
I would also like to add The Decent and Open Water.

@Jabberwocky: I was gonna say Buried. I tried, but I couldn’t watch it. My worst fucking nightmare.
127 hours I had to just like, walk away during for awhile and come back (not in a theater, watching at home) and just stop paying attention and play with my phone sometimes just to regain composure.

@Miss Circe: I saw Hard Candy. It was definitely a movie that messes with your mind, but it was a great film.

I didnt really get anything from Burried. It was like it just never reached its peak, for me.

- Wedding: June 2010 - parent's backyard
no movies have ever caused me to panic, but I have gotten a nice thrill from The Ring and The Shining. I love horror movies.
One movie that has always creeped me out in a “this could happen in real life” kind of way is Safe. Now every time I hear about mysterious illnesses, I’m like “it’s the chemicals all around us! thre’s no escape! aaaaargh!”

Darling Husband and I saw Gravity this weekend. Seriously, 90 minutes of stress and panic. I was exhausted when we got out of the theater; I couldn’t even relax and let Darling Husband put his arm around me, and I love that at movies. So stressful!
