Scariest movies out there?!?!?!??!?

I love scary movies, however,I am often disappointed by movies that are supposed to be scary. There are a lot of movies that are supposed to be scary but bore me. I mean really scary movies. I don't think I've seen a movie that had really scared me except for paranormal activity,and then when I found out it wasn't real that died too. However it was still a good movie. i just saw the omen a few days ago (the old one) and it was good and had me tense throught so are there any more good movies like that or scarier?? Some movies I like besides The Omen,Paranormal activity and the sixth sense. I heard the devils backbone was supposed to be it any good??? Any suggestions would be great! I'm wanting to watch some good ones for halloween and finally get scared haha Thanks!!!


I did like the exorcist but didn't think it all that scary.....I thought the rings and such were dumb movies. I agree though that most new aren't any good,so old ones are fine too....just want to enjoy something scary!

    Here are some great horror movies that I love and every horror movie buff should see. Jeepers Creepers, The Strangers(my favorite horror movie and it's very scary), Vacancy, Silent Hill, Black Christmas(1974), Quarantine, The Crazies, Amityville Horror, Dawn of the Dead(2004), Evil Dead(1981), Night of the Living Dead(1968), The Funhouse(1981), The Shining(1980), Wrong Turn, Halloween(1978), A Nightmare on Elm Street(1984), 30 Days of Night, The Cell, Session 9, House of 1000 Corpses, Battle Royale, The Uninvited, Martyrs, Let the Right One In, 28 Days Later, Inside, REC, Midnight Meat Train, The Descent, Friday The 13th(1980) and The Last House on the Left. My favorite movie is The Strangers because it's actually scary and it's based off true events. It's also something different in the horror genre which I love. Liv Tyler did an amazing job in this movie and it will scare you especially if you watch it by yourself at night. This movie was well written and the director knew what to do in order to scare you and it's a very suspenseful horror movie unlike any other. It's a good psychological horror and it could actually happen unlike a lot of horror movies out today. You should also check out the new A Nightmare on Elm Street movie, it's really good and one of the best remakes I have seen other then The Last House on the Left. Also remember you have to be in the right mind set to get scared and just enjoy the movie. I love horror movies and love Halloween. Happy Halloween!

    The fourth kind (its not real at all, so no worries, never happened in Alaska but its pretty scary)

    Rec (the real version although the american version is Quarantine, its also spanish and super scary. the sequel is Rec 2)

    Silent Hill (scariest concept, storyline of a film)

    Case 39 (just saw damn creepy)

    Orphanage (spanish film, great story line)

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (super creepy, and you may scream a lot)

    These are my type of horror films because I think them to have a deeper story. I havent seen paranormal because it looks pathetic, but I hope you enjoy these. Theyre my favorite!

    Most scary movies made today are bad. The Descent is probably my fav that has been made recently. The all time scariest movie has to be The Exorcist. And it is based on a true story.

    House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price is good, but it's not really scary. Here is what it's about:House on Haunted Hill is the tale of five people invited to stay the night in a haunted house by an eccentric millionaire, Fredrick Loren (Vincent Price), who is throwing the "party" for his fourth wife, Annabelle (Carol Ohmart), with the stipulation that the power will be out and all doors will be locked at midnight, allowing no accessible escape. Anyone who stays in the house for the entire night, given that they are still alive, will each receive $10,000.

    The five guests all arrive in separate funeral cars with a hearse leading, which he explains may be empty now, but they may be in need of it later. He explains the rules of the party and gives each of the guests a .45 caliber pistol for protection. Loren's wife tries to warn the guests that her husband is psychotic, causing them to be very suspicious of him, especially Nora Manning (Carolyn Craig), who becomes convinced that he's trying to kill her when she keeps seeing mysterious ghouls, including the ghost of Annabelle, who had hanged herself after being forced to attend the party.

    Almost as frightened as Nora is Watson Pritchard (Elisha Cook), the house's owner and another of the party's guests. He is fully convinced that the house is genuinely haunted by the ghosts of those killed there in the past, and that those ghosts have the power to "come for" and kill anyone in the house that they wish.

    Eventually it is revealed that Annabelle faked her death in league with one of the guests, Dr. Trent (Alan Marshal). The two have been attempting to frighten Nora so badly that she will be spooked into shooting Frederick. Indeed, after being driven into a fit of hysteria by the repeated frights she has experienced during the evening, Nora does fire upon Frederick, assuming he is going to kill her. After she flees the room, Dr. Trent slips in and tries to get rid of Frederick's body by pushing it into a vat of acid, but the lights go out, and when they come back on, both of the men are gone.

    After hearing the sound of the gunshot, Annabelle enters to confirm that her plan to kill her husband has come to fruition. Suddenly, a skeleton emerges from the acid accompanied by Frederick's voice. The spectre approaches Annabelle as she recoils in terror. In this panic, the screaming Annabelle accidentally backs into the acid herself. The real Frederick walks out of the shadows, holding the contraption that he was using to control the skeleton. In his triumph, he watches Annabelle disintegrate.

    Nora tells the other guests that she's shot Loren in the wine cellar, and they all rush down there. When they arrive, they see that he's actually alive, and he tells Nora that the gun she had fired at him had been loaded only with blanks. He then explains to guests that his wife and Dr. Trent had been trying to kill him and that they each have met their end in the vat of acid. He says solemnly that he is "ready for justice to decide" his guilt or innocence.

    Just when everyone thinks the trauma is finally over Watson Pritchard looks into the acid and asserts that Annabelle and Dr. Trent have now joined the ranks of house's ghosts. Then, with a terrified expression on his face, he announces that the ghosts are now coming for him. Breaking the fourth wall, he looks at the camera and adds, "and then they'll come for you."
