    What Slinker said about the amazing The Wicker Man is not a spoiler at all. Also Slinker, nice to see you agree on BWP and POD. :)

    The original Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. I was about 10 when I saw it and it scared the hell out of me.

    Return of the Living Dead and Children of the Corn no doubt frightened me the most as a kid, but no longer affect me. The Shining has always struck me as creepy/scary, but it only works if you sit there and watch it in its entirety with no breaks.

    I had trouble going to sleep after seeing Elm Street 2 on HBO in the mid 80's.

    These movies scared me when i was a kid: The Serpent and the Rainbow, the first 3 NOES's, Halloween, Maniac, Alien, Exorcist, NotLD ('68), Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974).

    I don't get scared too often while watching movies anymore but i have to admit watching Session 9 in the dark late at night was pretty creepy.

    The films that Scared me the first time i saw them to the point of that i was looking over my shoulder for a week.

    Carrie - I was afraid of mom for about a week afterwards. I could not watch the ending alone.

    Exorcist - Being more a part of the whole catholic scene when i was younger it really hit home.

    The Shining - The old lady in the bathtub screen always freaked me out. Actually the whole film pretty much freaked me out.

    Jaws - I though Jaws was going to come into my room and eat me.

    The Day After - From that day on, every plane i heard overhead that sounded a bit loud i thought was a Nuclear missle and i we were all going to die.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre - After watching it, i felt abused and dirty. So i watched it again the next day.

    The Evil Dead - I watched this alone at age 12 big mistake.

    Blair Witch project - Only film to scare me as an adult. I actaully had to get up in the middle of the night and re-check my dorr to make sure they were locked. I guess i though the bliar witch was outside or somthing.

    The one that gave me nightmares for years as a kid was part 3 of the original Trilogy Of Terror with Karen Black and the Zuni fetish doll.
    If I would have seen Blair Witch or the Ring or anything else as a kid in the 70's, I don't think anything would have had as much as an effect on me as that movie did.
     
  14. A few that freak me out when viewed alone in the dark...
    SESSION 9: The creepiest audio I've ever heard in a film
    AMITYVILLE HORROR: Just thinking about Jody's red eyes in the window is bugging me right now
    TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE(1974)
    THE RING: either version, even though I prefer the original

    and here's a few that may cause me to get ripped on, but have recently bothered me for some reason.
    MTV'S FEAR: watched a marathon one evening a while ago, was thoroughly disturbed.
    FRIDAY THE 13TH PT 5: when i was going to bed, it was on AMC. I'd seen it before...maybe it was a bad day
    And on that note also, I fell asleep while viewing HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES and had some of the freakiest nightmares I can recall. Weird!

    a few more:
    GUINEA PIG:THE DEVIL'S EXPERIMENT
    CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST
    THE UNTOLD STORY
    THE SHINING
    NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD(1969)
    HALLOWEEN

    And although its off-topic, there's this one website that has webcams set up in an allegedly haunted library at a college in Indiana which is kinda freaky. I forget the exact address, but I'm sure a yahoo search could bring it up. I found it interesting and a little unnerving. Especially the captured shots. You can report if you spot the ghost. WOOHOO!!!
