I just watched Seven, and no matter how many times I've watched it, it still prevents me from sleep and then, when I do get to sleep, it gives me nightmares.<br><br><br><br>
I love it!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
So I'm going to watch a scary movie every night before bed my whole week off. I'm thinking of hitting Blockbuster, so some recommendations would be cool. I only have a few scary movies in my collection. I like suspense-scary and dramatic-scary, not chainsaw-massacre-scary. I'm thinking I'll watch Silence of the Lambs, The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, Poltergeist, and maybe the Ring, but yeah, I'm looking for recommendations for my experiment...

Seven does it for me too..I have rosemary's baby too,,, it didnt scare me but I thought it weird....<br><br><br><br>
I am really hard to scare,,, easy to gross out,, hard to scare...nothing I have seen in a long time, with the exception of seven, has scared me... Stir of echoes was a fun movie,,not quite scary tho, kind of in the sixth sense vein of movies.

If you can find it - it's quite an old film - try The Changeling. It's not particularly gory, but is certainly very creepy and suspenseful indeed.<br><br><br><br>
And there's a great new-ish film called The Eye, which freaked me out the first time I saw it.<br><br><br><br>
And, if you can get it, rent the original Japanese Ring (or Ringu) movie - it's 345873648754 times scarier!!

Instead of viewing the ring.. try seeing if you can find Ringu. I think that is it.. It is the Japanese version, and I heard it was scarier.

That's quite a number!<br><br><br><br>
Seven really didn't give me any nightmares this time around. I read a chapter from Bertrand Russell's <i>Why I'm Not a Christian</i>, which makes for an interesting juxtaposition to the religious significance in the movie. The only dream I had was where I was goalie for Tottenham Hotspur playing against a very mean all-start Euro team and it was raining so hard you couldn't see this other end of the field. I kept punching away all of their shots but my teammates were just sitting around getting drunk and laying around on the field. Eventually I gave up and let a shot whiz by my head and I left the field. When I came back to get a ride home because I had no money, everyone was gone.<br><br><br><br>
I just renewed my Netflix account and added Ringu and the restored version of the Exorcist as my first two rentals <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

No movie with the word "picnic" in it can be all that scary. But it's on the Netflix list now, so we'll see!

The stairs in the Exorcist that the priest throws himself down - they're in Georgetown (D.C.) and I used to hang out down there a lot. It's fun taking first dates there, because the stairs are so creepy and REALLY REALLY steep, and you have to lean way over to see that there are even any steps, and then you go BOO!!! And scare the girl to death! Good times...

I was there too when i was checking out Georgetown for college.At least I was told they were the steps,,.. I totally flipped out! Same trip that I coincidentally met some actors from the TV show Homicide....did I just date myself?<br><br><br><br>
I want to go on a European scare tour sometime... including that freaky graveyard in scotland(although they closed down the section where people were getting "attacked")

Im a wuss.<br><br>
I got freaked out watching bits (in various order) of The Others while on a flight from Aus-UK. Thats right, a brightly lit plane - not like i was alone in a dark house or anything.<br><br><br><br>
Yes, Picnic at Hanging Rock is creepy. I will add the Shining, and Don't Look Now.<br><br>
hell, even Rear Window makes me scared. I love that movie.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre really scares me. I've only seen it 2x's but I think it's the most disturbing movie. I didn't think Ringu was scary/creepy, I fell asleep while watching it, I thought that The Ring was better.

I couldn't sleep for a week after watching "The Exorcist" the first time. I went to bed with a bible and kept my lights on. I still have to peek through my hands to watch some parts. There is this creepy old movie they used to play on AMC called "The Uninvited". Creepy movie for its time, though very hard to find.

The original "The Haunting" is actually a pretty scary movie. Very intense. Far better than the recent one. I thought that the Exorcist was SO scary when I first saw it, but thought that it was very dated when I saw the rerelease. For some reason, "Event Horizon" really got to me. I've never sat through a whole "Hellraiser" and probably never will, but those characters are pretty creepy. I don't watch anything like that anymore. I have become super sensative to it. I have a hard time even reading scary stuff before bed. I remember reading Stephen King's "It" when it first came out and I had nightmares and the heebie jeebies about clowns with razor teeth for a long time. Too bad it got so goofy at the end.
