    Yeah, I wasn't scared by Exorcist at all.

    Candyman, though, has one of the creepiest film opening sequences ever.

    I thought Candyman was pretty pants... considering Virginia Madsen was touted as being one of the most promising actresses around the early 80s she ended up doing crap like Candyman

    Oh, and not forgetting Highlander II...

    I'm sorry I think The Exorcist is one of the most disturbing film's ever..I first saw it in my twenties and by that point I'd lost the ability to be scared by film...but there are moment that are truly uncomfortable...the bit's when Regan was getting tested are almost unwatchable...

    The Candyman ( although I rate the work of Clive Barker ) was purely popcorn fodder

    When it first came out, I went to see Superman at the cinema and cried all through the start bit with Krypton getting blown up cos it petrified me so much. What the hell kind of a childhood was that?

    The Exocist book is a lot scarier than the movie. There is more about the testing and stuff. And it ties it in with other material about real cases which totally freaked me out.

    Candyman was pants.

    And I really enjoyed Jeepers Creepers. We saw it last year at the all night horror thing.

    It's good until you actually see the baddy and then it sharply goes downhill. And daft ending

    Doesn't that make you agnostic not athiest (sp?)

    Yeah, the book of the Exorcist was good. It was much better than the film.

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is *the* most underrated horror flick.

    I have the mental image in my mind right now of the store where the girl runs into for help. Within minutes the Redneck Nutter Store Keeper has her bagged and in the front of the pick-up truck and is driving along whilst laughing insanely and jabbing her through the bag with a sharp stick.

    That memory will endure. Not to mention the decaying Grandaddy wheeled out for dinner to meet the bagged guest.

    Sick as you like. I loved it.

    Oh and The Shining (not as good as the book) Alien and The Exorcist.

    And may I just say, nobody's scared of Candyman but have you ever stood and looked in a mirror @ midnight and said

    Candyman
    Candyman
    Candyman

    Well don't bother. Nothing happens (quelle surprise)apart from an odd feeling of twattishness

    Thinking about it, Misery was pretty cool... just thought Kathy Burke's character was quite chilling...

    Actually, my parents have a tape of ghost stories. They're not scary....at least not till you're in a cottage in the middle of nowhere, it's pitch black, and you hear all sorts of strange noises. Then your imagination starts working overtime... ;)

    we did that on a trip once, watched horror movies in a house in the middle of no where (wales of all places and a 30 min drive to the nearest town) this house happened to be next to a graveyard.

    Anyone remember Ghostwatch with Sarah "Live and Kickin'" Greene? I was 9 when that came on and it was well scary.

    Apparently the BBC are considering a DVD release

    Carrie makes me laugh hysterically at the end with the knives. I couldn't stop laughing for about an hour after I saw it the first time. I've even started giggling just now thinking about it

    // trips

    // points @ bone swinging above forehead

    // lays on back and screams and screams
    - with laughter

    My favourite scary movie is Silence of the Lambs... but one that had me on the edge of my seat a while back was Misery...

    I saw the Excorsist a few months back and I was completely underwhelmed with the whole thing... the video is gathering dust now upstairs!

    I'm not much for scary movies though to be honest they do just that... SCARE me! I only watch them if I'm with someone nice so I get an excuse to cuddle up to them on the sofa :D
