    Dark Night of the Scarecrow. Freaked the hell out of me.

    Another one that freaked me out was Do You Know the Muffin Man?

    Watched The Stand the other night(s) and was a bit disappointed, not nearly as good as I had remembered it. A bit amateurish even ...

    However, Stephen King's Storm of the Century was a big surprise, easily my favorite mini-series of his!

    Trilogy of Terror! With honorable mention to Bad Ronald -- barely horror, but creepy with a side of camp' with a love story thrown in for good measure.

    Voted for Stephen King's It, though Salem's Lot is a close second. I even enjoyed Frankenstein:The True Story with James Mason and Jane Seymour, good film overall.

    I almost picked Gargoyles for that same reason. I know what it feels like to be chased by a giant, winged creature after I was shown another creature's bones in an old shed in the desert 3 months ago. :nervous:
    Luckily Billy rescued me before it took me to it's cave hideout.

    Hey Everyone,

    AHHH, it really gladens the heart to see Salem's Lot leading the poll so far and all the positive comments. It's my 2nd favorite movie of all time ( behind Dawn Of The Dead ) and it's just so damn underated. Ralphie Glick sctaching at Danny's window at their home ( not the 2nd hospital scene ) is still IMO the scariest scene from any horror movie.

    It is my hope that when High Def DVD gets going we will be treated to the special edition that SL so desperately deserves. Just wanted to mention some other great TV movies not on the list that Devo 1313 mentioned :

    Don't Go To Sleep ( 1982 ) - Very creepy movie with Dennis Weaver, famous for the pizza cutter up the staircase scene.

    Dead Of Night ( 1977 ) - Comprised of three short stories but the final one called Bobby about a mother bringing her dead son back to life is the shit.



    LUCIO!!!!!

    Homer : Yeah, but your mom payed for that.
    Bart : But doesn't she get her money from you.
    Homer : And I get my money from grease, what's the problem.

    I picked Helter Skelter. When I first saw this I couldn't believe it wasn't really Manson let out of prison for two weeks to play himself in a movie. It's so scary because it's a true story. I keep meaning to pick up the DVD. My wife will refuse to watch it because she once had a dream that she was Abigail Folger getting killed.

    Just an update on my Gargoyle story for Bloodman.
    We ended up destroying their eggs but a couple of those bastards got away. No sweat though as they only come out every 500 years so I won't be seeing them again. Whew glad that's over with.

    They're are probably some made-for-cable movies that I've forgotten.

    All the David Lynch episodes of Twin Peaks stand as the very best to me...and believe me, there were some creepy awesome moments to be had.

    From the list I picked The Stand. It's far from perfect, but I have liked most of the Stephen King TV movies...even Sometimes They Come Back was ok, I thought. Wasnt' big on the new version of The Shining but I'd be willing to give it another shot.
