Resident Evil is/was the scariest video game I ever played. ALthough the original Alone In The Dark was tension filled. Of course, there were quite a few points in Quake that startled me into dropping my keyboard off my lap. The commercials for Silent Hill (2?) looked scary enough.

PD1501974, I'm going to go rent Session 9. It better be scary, OR ELSE! ;)

Session 9

Dylan, it is both scary & disturbing; As well as beautifully shot (except for one or two minor complaints) and incredibly well acted. But you HAVE to watch it in the dark with the volume up, preferably alone.
And Silent Hill 2 IS the scariest/eeriest game ever. Way beyond Resident Evil or Alone In the Dark. It is a masterpiece.
And for just plain disturbing, check out the film Audition by Takeshi Miike. Kinda slow but well worth it.
Hope you enjoy!

I've played the first Silent Hill, but not the second. Excellent game.

Was not that impressed by Session 9. I don't know about scary, but I know a really f*cked up horror movie--it's called Nekromantic, and proudly proclaims on the cover of the box (at least where I rented it) that it was banned in Germany, where it was made. Not for the faint of heart.

Well allthought it seems that modern movies are not considered scary at all, i must say that 6.th sense scared the bejeezus out of me when i saw it first. Of course, all the suspense in that movie is kinda lost the second time, but oh.. the first one. And i managed to see it without any spoilers beforehand. So it was pristine moment.

Other than that i must say that Aliens 1 is one of the most scary movies i've seen in a long time. And if possible, go get the spec. edition DVD with the isolated soundtrack. It's very educational to see how they use very customized musical background to enhance the mood and scary parts.

What about Day of the Dead (I think that's the one I'm thinking of). . .that one's pretty creepy. Really graphic onscreen violence, and they're all trapped in a mall.

Yeah, the orgianl Alien was scary. Edge of the seat stuff back then. Especially if you saw it in a theater.

Friday The 13th.(Theatre)
The Excorcist(Home)
Halloween(Theatre)
Amityville Horror(Theatre)

I'm looking back on my younger years when they had more effect on me than does movies I watch today. I guess I've hardened up to horror flicks these days but back then this type of horror was relatively new compared to what it is today. The sudden scenes and suspense in Friday The 13th scared the wits out of me back in 1980 when it was originally released.

There are many scary movies but The Shining was one that sticks out in my mind. I was a registered nurse at a state psychiatric hospital, on the night shift, when I say The Shining. Man, I was looking behind me every minute !

Yikes ! Nick

I just finished watching "The Others"...alone and at night. That was more creepy than I thought it'd be.

Watching this reminded me of another film with almost the same name that I saw way back in the 70s...and that scared the bejesus out of me. It was called "The Other." Anyone remember that?
