I've read the Exorcist but never seen the movie, interesting web site moonchild, I'm going to rent the movie this weekend if I can find it here at Blockbuster.

Hands down, no questions asked, has yet to be topped in my books...The Changling.  A Canadian film made in 1980.  Depending on where you are, it's likely going to be in the forign films section of you video store or at an independent store that caters to hard to get titles.

This film STILL scares the living daylights out of me!

13 ghosts (remake) was pretty good..also "the others"  was a pretty good old fashioned ghost story with a twist

the shining scared the hell out of me. and i'm with you ana, those little girls were SCARY. and my friend dev does a really good impression of them and when she wants to scare me, she sneaks up behind me and says,  "Come play with us. Forever and ever and ever." *shudder* scares me just THINKING about it!

Is this the one with George C Scott and the claw foot bathtub?

I helped a pal put a clawfoot bathtub into his bathroom and then we rented the movies and he and his wife got so mad at me. Of course it didn't help that to freak each other out they would both pound on the tub.

I'm still sticking with the old, "The Legend of Hell House" with Roddy Mc Dowell. That or a video of the last Presidential Inaguration.... SCARRRRRRRRRRY :o :o.

Yup, the one with George C Scott.  The part that terrified me the most in that flick..well...parts...lol...was the ball bouncing down the stairs and then he looks up and sees the old wheelchair at the top of the stair case, and then the face of the little boy in the 'well' in the house that was built above it.  <shudders>

I stopped watching The Exorcist after she started to projectile vomit, as I have a weak tummy (I also walk away from Meaning of Life when the fat man in the restaurant scene comes up!).  

The Others came close to The Changeling, I enjoyed that movie muchly as well.

See, I think the exorcist was disturbing more than it was scary. I mean, vomit and spider walks are reminiscent of just "eewww" type of movies. The Shining was psychologically just plain spooky. There was so much going on beneath the surface (and this is especially so if you've read the book).

My buddy and his wife used to sit in the bathroom and just POUND on the side of the tub. Evil I tell, evil.

As cheesy as it is, I still have to watch The Exorcist with all the lights on and someone right beside me. [smiley=cwm2.gif]

but basically these are also characteristics attributed to possession all over the world, isn't it? Why I have liked The Exorcst is mainly the story line and an almost life-like depiction of events.
