The Six Horror Movies That Scared the Hell Out of Me! [VIDEOS]
I miss when my wife and I started dating and spending an occasional Saturday in bed all day watching movies and eating. I want to do this again, but with only Horror movies.
For reasons, many of which are obvious if you've seen any of our favs, these movies at some point scared the crap out of us. There's always THAT SCENE. The one where the movie got inside you and freaked you out for days, weeks or still. The most we ever watched in a day was six, so here are the ones we'd watch
There are several **SPOILERS** below. If you see a title you haven't watched yet, skip past what I wrote and just watch the trailer.
In 2004, when this movie premiered, it was different than what I'd seen before and I liked that a lot. While the sequels never scared me, they made me very uncomfortable. The first "Saw" movie made you think a lot about what you'd do to free yourself from captivity, while an 'apparent' dead guy laid on the floor right in front of you. And what happens to that 'dead guy' at the end of the movie is what made the discomfort stick for years.
"Saw" - the original trailer
"Saw" is being re-released to the big screen for ONE WEEK ONLY and they updated the trailer
During my trip to Israel in 2000, I stayed in a hostel and I knew this movie would strike a chord with me. It did, but NOT in the way I anticipated. It made you think about the fact that there are people in this world that will pay any amount to feed their sick, twisted, perverted pleasures.
If you've ever been to church as a child at least a few times, you've gone to Sunday School. I think every S.S. teacher was forced to learn how to teach every kid in their class, to be scared as hell of the devil. There is something very demonic-like in "Event Horizon" and if that sort of thing disturbs you too much, don't watch. I did, and I can't remove the way it made me feel.
My first 'mass murderer' movie. My dad got pleasure from scaring me constantly while growing up and this was his 'game-changer.' I WAS 10!!!!!! While I'm glad to know that movie as an adult, I wish that night had never happened
Don't watch horror movies by yourself... it's never a good idea. I had to pass a big mirror on my way to bed that night and I had to make myself look away when I passed it. It took me a week to be able to look towards a mirror in the darkness.
#1 "The Strangers"
The types of horror movies that always get me are the ones that easily seem like they could happen in real life. Watching this movie in a room that was more that 50% windows only made it seem more like the whole movie was about to play out in my home. There's also a scene with a shooting that was really awful and sad... and terrifying!
