    What about that scene in Pet Sematary with the crazy sick aunt? THAT was scary.

    If not... I dunno, I love O'Quinn in The Stepfather and I think that's a really good setup for a horror flick.

    CACHE is excellent, FUNNY GAMES(Original) is a scary film and the US remake is disturbing too. I have always thought that BULLY by Larry Clark was so creepy and disturbing; one of those films that make you want to shower afterwards. The entire Suburban Condemnation and lazy lives that lead to this sort of attrocity in a brilliantly quiet, sleazy pic.

    Poltergeist. I have loved that movie since the first time I saw it as a child. It was a very simple well crafted ghost story. Even today I watch it and can see why it scared me as a kid.

    I like What Lies Beneath, myself. I haven't seen it in years, but I remember really liking Michelle Pfeiffer's performance in it.

    The most balls-out fun horror movie I've seen in a theater this year, and possibly in several years, is Orphan. The family is well-developed and excellently portrayed by the actors, and into that domestic setting comes the most adorable bad-ass little bitch ever put on film. Little Ester may be cute, but the carnage she causes puts Damien and all other killer kids to shame.

    Runners-up would be the first two Stepfather flicks.

    I hate them all. I can't think of a single film in this sub genre of horror films that I can stand. Why? I don't know. Why do I develop a hemorrhoid every Christmas? But nevertheless, I'll gladly take The Stepfather off your hands if the lords of chaos sees fit to award me a DVD in this game of chance. Who knows, I may wind up liking it enough to keep.

    I'll go with the Good Son, because I recently got another cat...making two cats in the house, and I think they kind of have a Macaulay vs. Elijah thing going on.

    Lots of good choices here. I'd have to go with the 1979 no-budgeter "The Attic" - domestic horror is the perfect description for this oddball dramatic thriller. Ray Milland's evil, controlling father in this movie is far more terrifying than anything Terry O'Quinn could do as the slasher stepfather. And Carrie Snodgress' masturbation scene is the most disturbing thing you will ever see in any horror movie ever. :eek1:

    Plus, there's a monkey in it.

    CUJO. Watching the lovable family pet slowly transform into a ravenous, blood-starved monster is downright terrifying.

    Hands down my pick would have to be Scorsese's Cape Fear. I have never seen an actor give as frightening performance as DeNiro did in this film. Simply amazing.

    Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me is the first film to pop into my head. Ray Wise’s performance definitely rivals that of Terry O’Quinn’s for most disturbed “daddy”.

    Stepfather for me too. Haven't seen it for a long time, but I remember finding it bleak and then moving into some genuinely hilarious humour.

    Combat Shock...sure, it's not horror, but it's terrifying and disturbing as hell, and it's more horrific than any film I've seen mentioned.

    The Stepfather easily. Terry O'Quinn is just flat out awesome in whatever he does.
