My eyes are watering. Warning: skeery.

Look. I love horror movies. LOVE. love scary stories, love it. Love that feeling of fear. It took me a few minutes to see it in this picture and then I jumped.


DO YOU SEE? (Note: it seems this picture was taken in the "Amittyville Horror" house and is something that "lived" there. Awesome.)

Ack! Took me by surprise, that's all. :) I'm watching Hellraiser later for some BDSM fun later, whee! ;)

Oooh, just because I'm booooored: scariest movies for me of all time, in order from least to scariest:

1. Psycho, and if this movie doesn't freak you out in places, even though it's old, you're not paying close enough attention. Seriously, though, when Bates is in the police station, smiling and that fly is crawling all over his hand and that voice over of "his mother?" Jeebus.

2. Poltergiest, again, I have no belief in ghosts. BUT. That clown! There's not a person around that's a Gen-Xer that isn't terrified of that clown in particular. And at the end when the mom is trying to get to CarolAnn and the room telescopes? GAH. Child in peril = I'm a mess.

3. Ils [Them], and I just saw this the other day. This is the French movie that "The Strangers" was based on, which I didn't see. Oh my GOD, this feels REAL. They have a hoax that "this movie is based on real events" but it's not.... really. The creepy noisemaker that one kid has and AUGH. Frighteningly awesome.

4. The Exorcist, the BOOK, mostly. Oh my god, it's the weird thing the demon does to her body, I'm not actually afraid of Satan, whom I don't believe in. Just... that crab walk on the ceiling?! (That's in the book.) Yeesh.

5. Rear Window, NO WAIT. No. Okay, that movie has one of the most terrifying moments in movie history, when Grace Kelly is across the courtyard looking for a ring, or any kind of evidence, and Jimmy Stewart is completely immobilized, LITERALLY paralyzed (from fear, too) and hiding in the shadows and Ray Bradbury looks straight across the courtyard and right through the binocular lenses and HE'S CAUGHT and oh my god, that gives me chills. God, that's a great movie.

6. The Grudge 2 (either version, and just this one scene) when she's attacked in her BED under her COVERS where you are supposed to be SAFE, oh my Jesus that I don't believe in, it's IN BETWEEN HER LEGS. Holy sheep shit. And that face appearing in the glass while she's riding down on the elevator??!?!

7. THE RING. Gah. The herky-jerky movements out of the TV, things that move fast that don't look like they'll move fast freak me the hell out, see: Zelda in "Pet Semetary" a so so movie, but Zelda with her creepy back and disease AUUUUUGH.

8. HANDS DOWN THE MOST FRIGHTENING MOVIE EVER. Texas Chainsaw Massacre. a) Most of it happens in the DAYTIME. b) The crack on the head with a ballpeen hammer, the guy twitching on the floor in death throes, and the SLAM of the corregated metal door. c) The girl tripping and landing on a killing floor, being HUNG UP ALIVE on a meat hook, being SHOVED INTO A MEAT LOCKER, STILL ALIVE and D) the most frightening bit in the whole damn thing: As the main girl is being chased by Leatherface, at one point she's running white-eyed and freaked RIGHT AT THE CAMERA. And you can see Leatherface GAINING on her. Which means he's gaining on YOU. Every time I see that scene I yell out, TURN RIGHT!! GO THAT WAY!!! Ahahahaha.

Okay, that's all I can think of on short notice, feel free to tell me yours. :) And now I'm not so freaked by that picture. I am, however, holding my hand over my computer screen to block it. Hee. <3

This post brought to you by my own boredom and refusal to do something constructive, like shampoo the carpets.

eeeeee! Oh, crap. Heh. I was like, see who, see who-- OH SHIT GAH. All the short hairs stood up.

I love that feeling, too. Thank you for sharing. :D

HEEEEEEE. That's EXACTLY my reaction, too. I LOVE THAT FEELING!!!!

Wah I don't SEEEEEE anything!

It's probably just me. I could never see any of the three-d things in those shiny foil pictures at the mall either.

Fabulous list! Although I think you mean Raymond Burr in Rear Window? (But I do LOVE the idea of TERRIFYING HOMICIDAL RAY BRADBURY...)
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:23 pm (UTC)
OKAY. You want to look for two glowing, beady eyes at the turn of the stairs. oh god...

Who did I say? Ahahahahaha, WHOOPS. I'll fix that, hee!!

ooh, I really like that moment in Rear Window too. I am not a big horror movie fan, and I have that picture scrolled up so I can't see her...

Shampooing carpets is horrible and boring, that's why I hire someone to do it for me.
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:27 pm (UTC)
That moment in Rear Window freaks me out every single time. People where they shouldn't be = ME SKEERD. :)

Bah, but I have a shampooer! I'm just bored - I've never been away from my kids in my house like this and I'm finding that I don't know what to do with myself...

KHASGJLHKDFASD I just jumped. D:

I really don't scare easily, but The Descent absolutely terrified me. I think it was one of the best horror films I've seen in years... and I make a habit of trying to catch all of them. XD I agree with you on Psycho, ohgod.
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
(Argh, you don't have to delete, it's okay! I screw up comments all the time. :D)

OH MY GOD HOW COULD I FORGET THAT ONE!!! I knew NOTHING about it, too. I thought it was a claustrophobia movie, which was scary enough, and then OH DEAR GOD WHAT IS BEHIND HER?!? Dang, that's a good one!

Eeee! Creeeeepy!! What the heck is that from?

Scariest for me is the original "The Haunting." When it turns out Julie Harris' hand is being held by a ghost or something. That entire movie I was on the edge of my seat.

"The Innocents" also freaked me out.
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
I just found it clicking around on the internet!!!!

You know, I don't think I've seen EITHER of those movies! What's wrong with me!? I'll add those post haste. (Ohh, I can't think of this one creepy Korean movie with two sisters and creepy periods and a something under the sink's cabinet - like, where a kickboard would be. It's TOO SMALL for a person how is she THERE?!?!?) Ack.

I'm going to Netflix RIGHT NOW. (Ooooh, and I should add the last few minutes of The Audition, too. That's more horrifying and gross than flat out scary, though.)

I can't even bring myself to look at the picture. I AM A HUGE WEENIS.

I would have to say Poltergeist scared me the most, although I also got thoroughly traumatized by Candyman and The Ring and even The Blair Witch Project. My stupid overactive imagination gets the best of me on all these movies and it's scary times in my brain afterwards. I never even chanced Nightmare on Elm Street for fear I'd never be able to sleep again. Hee.

*hides behind you in the theater*
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:44 pm (UTC)

Oh my GOODNESS, the very very end of The Blair Witch Project SCARRED me - who didn't play those games, you know? And the creepy handprints, EEEEK.

Nightmare on Elm Street scared me so badly when I first saw it - it's so bloody, and I think that was the first "slasher" film I'd ever seen. Yikes.

Jun. 15th, 2009 06:43 pm (UTC)
Huh. I didn't see anything until you pointed out the lights glinting off the newel post. (I think that's what it is, really. Looks too solid for a ghost.)

By the way, why is your computer suddenly screening me? I've commented here before and never had that happen.
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:53 pm (UTC)
It's not a ghost, it's a creepy girl peeking out of a dark room and I like to think she's some crazy evil that's been locked away AND NOW SHE'S OUT.

...not unlike jokes, it tends to not be scary when you have to explain. Eh.

I've been inundated with spam-bots, so I've had to screen everyone not on my flist.
Jun. 15th, 2009 06:52 pm (UTC)
I saw it and I'm not going to look again. That was too freaky.

The Japanese version of One Missed Call has just recently deprived me of sleep. *shivers* The movies that scare me the most are the ones where the characters are living their normal lives when something terrible happens, they don't go LOOKING for trouble. Like in One Missed Call, their only crime is having a damn phone and in the modern world, you really do need one. Eep.

So I won't be looking at that picture (though I'm intrigued and part of me keeps whispering to "DOOOO IIIIIT") since I've finally managed to shake One Missed Call. Sleep is nice!
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:23 pm (UTC)
Oooh, I don't know that movie, either! CLEARLY I have to add it to my viewing list. *rubs hands with glee*

THAT PICTURE D: I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight. :(
But I love The Ring :) I don't know why, I am really really scared of that girl, yet somehow I like the movie a lot!

If I may recommend a horror film I watched recently and that is still getting me goose-bumps: Cannibal Holocaust. It is as bad as it sounds, but OMG D: Even simply thinking of it scares me. It's not so much old-fashioned horror but mainly gore and psychological stuff that really gets to your head... uhm. Just sayin' :D
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:24 pm (UTC)

Oh, I love that movie, too! I love being scared, though. LOL, Cannibal Holocaust sounds like the sort of thing I'd love, too - I hope it's crappy and gory, those are my faves!

When I was about...oh, dear Lord, I was nine...The Dark Half scared me witless. My parents took me to see it at the drive-in, and you KNOW scary movies are ten times scarier when you see them at the drive-in!

I haven't seen it since then, so I'll bet it's lame now. But DUDE. So terrifying when I was young. I read the book when I got to be about fifteen or sixteen and really enjoyed it. But I am still traumatized by that movie, dude.

That one scene in Sleepy Hollow where Christopher Walken's zombified body stalks and then kills the little red-haired boy hiding under the floorboards? I almost screamed out loud. I so can't watch kids being hurt in movies and when he picks the boy up and he's screaming and his little legs are going--GAH. GAAAAH. I still don't know if the little boy is killed onscreen or not, because I always close my eyes and bury my face against something at the last second.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:25 pm (UTC)
You just hold on to those "it scared me then" moments if you want, because no, I don't think it would do anything to you now. :)

Or hey! Maybe watch them again so you can let go of that fear!
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
Is a total weenis and proud of it.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:19 pm (UTC)
Look at the size of your weenis, of course you should be proud!! HEEEEEE. <3 <3 <3
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:38 pm (UTC)
oh my gosh, that took me a while to see

I do have a crazy picture from the horror manga Uzumaki, though. It's about spirals (yes, spirals) taking over a town. Posted three pictures here


I really want to see Ils and some other new French horror films.

- Eyes Without a Face (Les Yeux Sans Visage) - 1959 French horror film about FACE TRANSPLANTS. What's really freaky about the transplant scene is that it's done so cold and soundtrack-less and aaack
- 28 Days Later - I like zombies, and I'm going to count this one in the category anyway, "infected" or not
- Carrie - I knew about the hand scene, but I screamed like a guy anyway
- A Tale of Two Sisters - The Korean film that the recent film The Uninvited is based on. East Asian psychological horror!
- Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1970's edition. THEY GET YOU IN YOUR SLEEP! Plus, the end scene.
- The Descent - I actually screamed at the monsters to "Get off her!" at one point, and I was near tears.
- Cannibal Holocaust - okay, it's hard to say you like a film like this, given what happens in the film, but this is true horror at what humans can do. It's exploitation that criticizes exploitation, and it used the characters-carrying-videocamera trick nearly a decade before The Blair Witch Project.
- Audition - starts out as a more bittersweet, dramatic version of a romantic comedy premise. But that's all setup for the madness to come.
- Let the Right One In - quiet Swedish vampire film that's definitely the anti-Twilight.

I got the taste for horror movies from my mother.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:46 pm (UTC)
DUDE, those pics!! That last one - yikes. Have you ever played the game "Fatal Frame?" That video game is so damn scary, it's not even funny.

I LOVED 28 Days Later! A TALE OF TWO SISTERS. I was talking about that in comments, but couldn't remember the name!!! Ditto on The Descent and Cannibal Holocaust, which... I am DEF. going to see that one!

I loved Let the Right One In. Absolutely beautiful (and horrible) movie. Audition is another one I mentioned in comments, too, lol. We clearly are on the same wavelength.

I had reoccurring dreams about him for years.

and the picture you posted...made me pee a little.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:47 pm (UTC)

That's quoted often in my house, hahahahaha. I remember the pukin gof the tequila worm, GAH.

Seriously, M, that picture jacked me up I had to share to take away its power, lol.
Jun. 15th, 2009 07:40 pm (UTC)
Repulsion. I do not do horror films, for reasons of being a wuss, but was manuvered into watching this one under the rubric of "it's really a French art film!"

The rabbit still haunts my dreams.

Jun. 15th, 2009 07:49 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, it's a Polanski and I refuse to watch his movies because of the whole quaaludes for a 14 year old and the forcing of sex bit.

Looking at the topics it covers, though, yow. That looks like it would be a hard film to watch regardless.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
