John Cusack, Ray Liotta, and Amanda Peet in IDENTITY

Phantasm, which I saw as a young kid, gave me nightmares for several weeks. Having an overactive imagination didn't help.

-- Jacob's Ladder

If you haven't looked it up, don't - a detailed description of the plot will ruin the movie for you. Go into it without expecting much.

It doesn't scare me anymore, but the first time I saw Aliens was on HBO back when I was around 11 years old. To date, I had never been so scared watching a movie in my life.

Having watched it at least 97 times since then, it doesn't quite have the same effect on me.

The Blair Witch Project scene with the guy facing the corner in the background freaked me out in the theater.

I have watched "Rosemary's Baby" 3 times and it freaks me out! The only part is that I close my eyes at the very end when Rosemary walks up to the bassinet to see her "son" (of satan). I hear his eyes are freaky and I can't bear to look!! Maybe I'm a chicken, can't help it! LOL!

the exorcist was very scary. I also remember Halloween, back then it was very scary, but i think that iconic music score from the movie made it even more so carpenter did a great job with that one.

I'm somewhat suprised this one hasn't been included yet ...

-- "The Omen" (the 1970's original)

Also some of the sequels.

I've blocked "The Omen" from my memory. It was too scary.

The original "Alien" (1979) was the best of the series. They should have stopped right there.

Couldn't breathe for 5 minutes after that pup jumped out of the pod and attached itself to John Hurt. The rest of the movie was just as intense. Slept with a gun cocked and locked on the nightstand for months afterward.

Drove 70 miles to Bakersfield to see "Aliens" in 1986, with great expectations for another thriller like the first one. It was so ridiculous (especially the "Newt" and Pvt. Vasques characters) we all got tossed out of the theater for laughing our asses off. The only thing worse was "Starship Troopers."

Ridley Scott was the man.

Not a favorite, but how about:

-- "Faces of Death"

Although dubious, and as it ends up, not exactly accurate, it disturbed a lot of people who viewed it ... so kinda falls into the category.

How about:

-- Jeepers Creepers

There's a particular scene where they're driving down the road, and from the corner of the eye, glance and see something freaky/disturbing ...

I'm with you ABE. I love that movie. I was telling my kids about it and ordered a copy a few years ago. Don Knotts is great.

Now, for scary, one of the best (I mentioned this one on some other entry, I'm sure) is
"The Woman in Black"
http://en.wikipedia.org/w...n_in_Black

Here's a lifted summary:
The chilling Victorian ghost story about a young solicitor, Arthur Kidd, who finds himself sent on an assignment, to attend the funeral and sort out papers belonging to the late Alice Drablow, of Eel Marsh house. Once there, the mysterious woman in black appears. Who is she, and what does she want? He's about to find out, with terrifying results.

I 2nd "The Omen".
"Last House on the Left"
I barely remember it but I thought it was scary at the time.
The "Hammer Films" starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing were scary.
"Nosferatu" - the original is creepy.
"Freaks" Really really old and really really creepy.
