While I have a soft spot for mummies, I still think zombies scare me the worst.
Who scares you?
If we're talking slow zombies, not so much. Fast ones....shit yeah.
Other than that, I think Freddy's pretty damned scary.
Possessed evil kids.
You just described...kids.
Well to put my own post totally off track, which would you rather be: Vampire or Werewolf?
And DON'T say UNDERWORLD already taught us it's better to be both.
Me, I like to howl and bite, so I have to vote Werewolf. Vampires are sexxxier though. ;)
Vampires bite. They could probably howl too without a whole lot of effort. So vampires win!
An American Werewolf in London scared the piss outta me. Of course, I was a kid when I saw it, but I still think it holds up pretty well.
That attack on the moors...bloody down feathers....(shudder)
Oh, and vampires have become the new elves. Supergay.
Go watch The Lost Boys or Blade again. The gay factor will go back down.
Well I am sure the Twilight movie did not help with that gay factor....If you look at both sides they each have there pro's and con's. And it all depends on what your take of a werewolf is or vampire. Everyone has different thoughts on how they act, what they can do or what they can not do.....
Anyways, the movie Poltergeist fucked me up as a kid and I still have a hard time watching that movie...those damn ghosts...
Indrid Cold from Mothman Prophecies.
Either that or Robert Blake as The Mystery Man in Lost Highway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG7znh49a44
Classic movie monsters have had their day scaring me. When I first saw Godzilla, King of the Monsters, I was 11. Even the butchered American version with Raymond Burr had a dark and sinister pall over it, putting emphasis on death and suffering, like few other rmonster movies of its time or type.
War of the Gargantuas, a Toho movie from 1965, was a sequel to "Frankenstein Conquers the World", an underrated sci-fi horror epic that mixed the Frankenstein Legend with Japanese Kaiju. Gargantuas was the "logical" progression of that story, featuring twin brothers born of cells from the Frankenstein creature. The one that lived in the sea was a green, man-eating freak and the fact that they used the real suit actor's eyes for the eye of the monsters added a scary little twist to it.
War of the Gargantuas.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YrWbL6DK5Q
Yeah, Indrid Cold was the scariest I've seen since Freddy Kreuger. It was a frightening experience. Also, Linda Blair from Exorcist.
Life is scary....
#1 DEMONS. #2 slow moving zombies #3 werewolves.. when they're done correctly, they are a beautiful savage creature with a remorseful and depressing human side and when they're not done correctly... well they just suck goat balls.
(and yes, Robert Blake was playing a demon in Lost Highway)
My mother started me on horror movies at a very young age. She didn't want me to be scared of them, so we would watch a non-horror movie first, and then follow it up with a horror movie with an actor or actress we had just seen in the non-horror movie. For example, we would watch E.T. and then follow it up with The Howling. She would point out that I had just seen Dee Wallace in E.T., and remind me that we were watching a work of fiction, and that Dee Wallace was just an actress. I remember her doing this with Ruckus and The Exorcist (Linda Blair), The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes and The Thing (Kurt Russel), and Footloose and Friday the 13th (Kevin Bacon).
The end result is that I never really got scared by scary movies. Some of my friends have told me they thought it was cruel and bizarre of my mother to make her preschool aged son watch horror movies, but she did a pretty good job of being with me and supervising the viewing experience. The only movie that really ever scared me as a young kid was a non-horror movie. Medusa in Clash of the Titans terrified me. I loved watching it as a kid, but I would always hide my eyes during the Medusa scene. I was convinced that I would turn to stone if I looked her in the eyes. Oddly enough, I didn't recognize Burgess Meredith from the Rocky Movies, so I wasn't quite able to convince myself that I was watching a movie with actors acting.
It wasn't until Candyman that an actual horror movie creeped me out. I had even recognized Tony Todd from the Night of the Living Dead remake. These days, I can't rightly see why I was so creeped out by it. The Philip Glass score probably helped.
I remember my first pulse-fuzzing jump scare. It was during the mask-removal scene in the Lon Chaney version of Phantom of the Opera. I found out years later that people had fainted during the scene and had run screaming from the theater when it was originally shown. If you've never seen the original 1925 unmasking (having, instead, seen the 1929 version sound redo [with sound elements removed] pawned off as the original), you should check out this video.
wait... arent The Computer Wore tennis Shoes and The Thing both horror movies? :O)
Fast Zombies. There are alot of them. The run and dont get tired. They attack relentlesly. They can find you anywhere. They dont eat, sleep or get tired. When you die you'll be one of them killing anyone you care about.
