I love phsycilogical horror films :D the kind that gets you thinking, in which they use mucis and atmosphere to induce the fear into you lol, i dont mind your average slashers if only for the comic relief they will no doubt have in the slasher films lol, but definatly phsychological :weeee:

  • Interests:I love to sleep!!! I also enjoy reading, some of my favorite authors would be Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Edgar Allen Poe. My favorite tv shows are Ghost Hunters, America's Most Haunted, I Shouldn't be Alive, anything on the Discovery Health Channel, Myth Busters, Desperate Houswives, Grey's Anatomy, House, American Idol, Trading Spouses, The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill. But I obviously don't watch any tv. I also enjoy making new, pretty medic alert braclets, and earrings.

I love psychological thriller type movies... One of my favorite movies is "Donnie Darko" (and Jake isn't all that bad either...), just because the whole time you are trying to figure out if he is really seeing the "demonic rabbit" or if he is going crazy.

Killer on the loose films always have me in stitches (from laughing soooo hard).... Plus I can typically figure out the killer pretty fast. I did like "Scream" (yummmy... Skeet Ulrich) but that one also wasn't as obvious to me as a lot of the killer movies I watch.

I also enjoy the ghost stories, although the japenese knock offs are really getting old. I like the old ones... "Ghost Story", "The Changling".... Don't rely on special effects to make me jump...
Love life.

Anyone seen the series 'medium'? Just borrowed the first dvd and its pretty neat.. a spin off on the ghost whisperer chronicles I think. Nevertheless, interesting watch. Also saw 'the return' (with 'Buffy' all grown up) the story line was good I thought. (not very high on the scare factor though)...

If you're into foreign flicks like the original 'grudge' and 'the ring'.. you might want to check out these Thai productions that caught my eye.

"ghost game", "Art of the Devil I & II".. it gives you an insight into the dark arts in the country.. very freaky that way... gorey and dark..

Make mine a suspenseful paranormal thriller. Blood and guts don't do it so much for me; true scary comes not knowing everything!

I love old classic Alfred Hitchock movies and ones that take place in a dark creepy mansion like the "Spiral Staircase" and "The Uninvited". The only two movies that ever scared me though are Halloween I ( and most of the following Halloween movies) and The Exorcist.

I am definitely more into paranormal horror films than any other form. I am not into the whole straightforward scary movie with gore and maniac killers, nor am i into science fiction stuff. There's something about the paranormal that is sincerely terrifying! :(
Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?Just because you're paranoidDon't mean they're not after you!

Normally I would say the paranormal type - I first saw The Exorcist 8 years ago, and I still think that it is the scariest movie of all time! However, I am finding myself very much attracted to the "killer on the loose type" that isnt your typical slasher flick. For example, The Silence of the Lambs. I saw that movie when I was maybe 10 or 11, and now, at the tender age of 19, I am still scared to walk alone at night on my college campus because I dont want to be kidnapped and flayed by Buffalo Bill! Plus, Hannibal Lector is amazingly creepy. So, I suppose I do have a bit of a weak spot for "human monsters"

Im not too big on horror they either over scare me (I have an imagination like this big*holds out hands*) and I dont sleep for nights afterwards (the first time I watched Michael Jacksons thriller video I couldnt watch it) or I find them extremely boring.

Comody horrors are cool such as the Adams Family.

I like psychological thrillers but sometimes they scare me.

I force my self to watch Vampire and werewolf films because Im usually scared but love them so much, such as, Blade, Underworld, american werewolf in london, Van Helsing, From Dusk till dawn (Quitin Tarentino rawks :() plus I love alien/ space films, so I go with sci-fi/ fantasy.

I agree with you, GhostCat, Halloween I is a classic. The Exorcist is very disturbing, even though I saw it twice. Back in the 1973, I saw one of the sets for the film. It was housed in a
studio on the West Side of Manhattan. I remember it was very dim and depressing.

If I remember right, strange things happened to some of the cast and crew while they were filming The Exorcist. Still one of my all time favorites. Psycho and The Birds and Alien also rate high on my list.
