My fave scary movie is:13th ghost.
It's not like it's scary scary.It's just that the make up and the special effects make the film kinda freaky.
It hard work, but someone's gotta do it!

I kinda like the NEW Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It is quite scary but for the best i think Rosemary's baby or the Omen.

That's half the fun!! :D

I remember going to Granada Studios when I was about 9 and went on Alien the Ride and that made me cry!! When I came home, I kept on freaking myself out thinking this HUGE alien thing would come out and jump at me!

Our imaginations love doing things like that to us, you just gotta remember that the majority of things we watch are so cheesy and fictional that it'd never happen!

It's hard to find a decent horror film nowadays though; most of them are just teeniebopper slasher films with half-naked cheerleaders being chased and murdered by a dude in a mask *sounds familiar...*

In my opinion, horror films are the height of entertainment, because a good one will mess with your mind and keep you thinking after it's ended. They bring out our worst fears and make us watch them on an oversized screen, and in a way, it's like facing a phobia. You'll only get rid of it if you confront it.

There I go again!!

Sixth Sense was good but not menacingly frightening. Made me jump a couple of times but that was all. Copy Cat was good, but that was more of an action thriller than a horror.

Ah... good times :)

Rosemary's babay is about this woman who has a child but people look after her and they are weird. I cant say much as it gives it away but it is good.

I hate horror movies more than anything! I watched one when i was really young at a friends house and my mum says i didn't sleep for a week i was so scared. Ever since then i switch over if one comes on and dont go to the pictures. My imagination goes into overdrive sometimes.

Is silly i probably wouldn't be that scared but it has been so long now i am not bothered

We can be scaredy cats together yea!!!!

Oooh that candyman one have never seen it but used to scream when my friends told me about it and said it in the mirror in front of me!

Have just remembered that film i watched as a little girl was Gremlins! Ha ha was so frightened! Have watched it since and it was so funny.

The other thing i am petrified of and cant even listen to is War of The Worlds (you know the original one). My dad used to play it and i thought it was real!

I love horror films. The opening to Scream is phenomenal in terms of the structure of a successful horror film. Wes Craven says that in orer to get the audience involved in the fear of a horror you have to have some action in the opening 10 minutes of the film. That opening sequence is about fifteen minutes long, and is packed with a great script and great action. Wes Craven's come a long way since 'The Last House On The Left'.

Actually that's a true point about the opening sequence, you get involved quicker rather than wait for the storyline to develop. I love the scream films tho.
