    The original Frankenstein movie scared the crap out of me when I was a little kid and I still enjoy watching it now.

    OK, here's an interesting true story re: the scariest movie I saw. The movie was only regular scary and I don't remember the name. It was about these little monsters that came from a well that was sealed up in the basement and the new owners opened it letting the little creatures out. They could not stand the light and eventually dragged the homeowner down the well.

    Anway, here's the interesting part that freaked me out....

    After watching the movie (I was about 9) I go down to my room in the basement which is like a cave and of course I'm alone in the house. So, I have this closet that is built into the space under the stairs. THe angle of this closet lets it never get any light from the room and the light in the closet burned out about a year ago. Inside the closet along the walls and in the back area deep under the stairs I have a beer can collection lining the walls.

    So I'm laying on my bed thinkink that my closet would be the perfect place my closet would be for critters like those in the movie to live....when all of a sudden I hear a crash inside my closet as the beer cans come falling down! This had never happened before or since, but it happened at the very moment I was thinking about it. To this day I have no explanation other than an unbeleivable coincidence. I am not telekenetic (unfortunately! that would be great) and at the time it did freak me out. I was really concentrating on that closet at the moment the crash was heard.

    I remember my mother letting me go to the movie theater one summer when I was nine or ten. The movie was THEM it was about giant ants.:eek:oooh:
    Well it being summer and all, that night trying to ease the heat with the windows open, all I heard was the constant chirping of crickets, tree frogs and various other nocturnal creatures.:crazy:
    All of these combined sure enough sounded just like those giant ants!. I laid in a pool of cold sweat all night! lol :angry:
    Didn't teach me a thing though. I went right back and watched the TINGLER lol. I guess that I got it all scared out of me because movies don't bother me any more. lol:big_smile:

    The 1st Jaws was pretty scary. Like the part where the guys head came to the hole in the bottom of the boat. Made me jump bad!

    Honestly, dont laught.......

    Blair Witch Project on opening night. 4 of us went on opening night in Gahanna at the Drexel to watch it. It is a very old theatre that just made it even worst. At the time it was said to be a true story, just seeing it from that perspective and the film quality it scared the living hell out of me.

    Also love the origional Nightmare on Elm Street.

    Fallen is great also with John Goodman and Denzel.

    The 1960 B/W version of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho... the stabbing of Janet Leigh in the shower... the first time I saw it gave me cold chills. Of course it doesn't compare to some scenes in todays movies but I don't get that feeling.

    I guess I would have to say the Exorcist because of the subject matter, and my age at the time.

    Wow, some of you guys were allowed to do a lot more than me growing up! My parents drew the line regarding movies like "The Exorcist". I wasn't permitted to see it when it was released in theaters. In fact, I never saw it until years later when I was in my twenties. Still scared the heck out of me, though. I don't bother with the "Nightmare on Elm Street" or "Halloween" series. Back in the day, I suppose they were scary, but now they just make me laugh. Try that in a packed movie theater full of petrified teenagers! A more recent horror movie that packed a punch for me is called "Don't Close Your Eyes" starring Goran Visnjic, better known as Dr. Luka Kovac on the television series ER. :eek:oooh:

    I can't remember how old I was when I first saw that movie, but I do know that I started locking the bathroom door when I took a shower and they were very short showers.

    Nowdays, the movies of "Final Destination" freak me and Vernon out.
