I used to be a horror movie fanatic…but honestly the scariest thing I’ve ever seen was a documentary on Netflix about sleep paralysis. I didn’t even finish it because it was so disturbing to me…slept with the lights on for weeks.

And to actually answer the question..The Exorcist always gets me and so did the Counjouring.

My opinion probably won’t count for much as I prefer suspense over horror but the last scary movie that really bothered me was Hostel and that released a decade ago. Movies like that are just too gruesome for me.

If you like creepy kids and old people you should try The Orphanage, it is sooooo suspenseful and beautifully made.

The Babadook was an awesome movie.

When I was younger The Grudge absolutely terrified me, so much so I’ve never been able to bring myself to watch The Ring as they’re too similar.
As an adult I would say Paranormal Activity 3 was the scariest movie I’ve ever seen. Which is odd considering I thought the 1st one was not scary at all and didn’t get the hype surrounding it.
Another film which really stuck with me is Sinister, I think it was the combo of the snuff films and demon that got to me.

John Carpenter’s The Thing
I’m very big on horror movies but this movie is the only one that made me feel unsettled. The atmosphere and unknown, I’m also Claustrophobic and don’t like the idea of being stranded.
I’m also in love with the practical use.
Oculus and Sinister are two good ones from the past decade.
I usually do choose a campy horror movie over serious.

The new It has to be my current favorite. The Conjuring 1 and 2 for sure. And the Insidious movies. I recently watched The Ritual on Netflix and loved it. Super creepy to me, because I have a phobia about woods at night, but my husband liked it too. And an older one that still stands out to me is Gothika with Halle Berry and Robert Downey Jr.

Amen to The Exorcist. I get such a weird feeling when I watch it. Love older scary movies like The Thing, Poltergeist, The Shining, and Silence of the Lambs.
Some newer ones that creeped me out were The Witch. I won’t give it away, but all I gotta say is…Phillip!!
The Babadook was amazing. The Ritual, on Netflix, was pretty good. It got weird at the end but the imagery was pretty frightening.

dannij8918 : Any of the Asian horror genre. I believe The Ring and the Grudge are both remakes from the original which are Japanese(?). Those scared the crap out of me….

I’m a big horror movie person and I know a lot of people who like making them, so really nothing scares me anymore. There are of course a few I thought were really good. A lot of people mentioned The Babadook, so +1 to that. Oculus I think was underrated – it’s an example of a horror protagonist doing everything RIGHT for once and it’s neat how that turns out. Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake was really well done, and Rosemary’s Baby (NOT the remake oh my god no) is one of my favorites.
I could go on, but honestly the list of horror movies I’ve seen is just stupidly long. I didn’t mention The Shining because everyone’s seen it, but that’s another favorite. And the original Carrie with Sissy Spacek.

happyjuju : This is the first movie I thought of when I read the thread title!! That movie seriously messed with me. I remember watching it, terrified, and then realizing at the end it was based on true events. WTF.

The Exorcist still gives me chills… best horror movie of all time. The original foreign “The eye” and “Ju-on,The Grudge ” are great too. I’m pretty immune to horror films , but I do love them.
