so i watched the sixth sense for the first time earlier tonight on tv (yeah i know, way way behind the eightball). when the movie ended, i was incredibly disappointed with the conclusion (are you seriously telling me that bruce willis went weeks to months without knowing that he was dead???? are you telling me that he never once in that period had to go to a store/buy gas/etc and had to talk with a clerk???) but up to that point, it provided what 99% of horror movies dont provide....horror.

as terrible as the ending was, for most of the movie, i was tense, and even jumped at points. the sixth sense provided me with something that i had been looking for for a long time in horror movies, something that 30 days of night never came close to, and something that the ring showed glimpses of better never delivered. i am 20 years old and i have no shame in admitting that the sixth sense genuinely had me creeped out and on edge. and for some twisted reason, i absolutely love that.

after the movie ended, i was somewhat content. bruce willis was a pretty nice guy, and he was a ghost, so ghosts cant be all that bad.

then i decided to go down to my room to get some beers to sip on. my room is in the basement. surprisingly, in the paranoid state of mind i was in, walking down the stars into a pitch black basement didnt phase me in the least. ghosts could be nice people and rather helpful. whats to be scared of about that?

so i pull six beers out of my fridge (ah yes, the two hour six pack) and begin to walk up the stairs. as im on the last step, a beer falls out of my arms and starts slowly rolling down the stairs. all i could think about as it rolled down the first two steps is "OMGZ if that hits the concrete floor at the bottom, it might explode. there is no way in hell i want to deal with that shit right now.". i ran down the stairs after my renegade beer trying to catch it. there were prickles on the back of my neck and the hair on my arms was standing up.....

luckily the beer did not explode upon hitting the floor, just slightly dented. i picked it up, walked up the stairs and into my kitchen. pulling open the door of my fridge, i crouched down and began putting the beers in. without thinking, i said out loud to absolutely no one, "god, this shit is so cold"....

i took a beer and went and sat on my couch and starting watching some home improvement. all of a sudden, i realized my shin was slightly throbbing. wtf? looking down at my leg, i realized that when i dropped the beer on the stairs it had bounced off my shin. i was too pissed off that i dropped one to care. it is currently swollen, and there is a small cut....

m. night shyamalan, i applaud you. thank you for fulfilling my sick twisted enjoyment of feeling creepy and uncomfortable, even after the movie ends...


so my question to the pit is, what movies genuinely scarred you so i can put it on my list of things to watch.

I wonder how many will actually read all of that.
EDIT: The only movie to EVER scare me was the Ring. People make fun of me for it, but it was the only one.

the sixth sense creeped me out too, but I usually hate horror movies, so that's the only one I've seen

Maybe it's because I'm now on my 3rd day of not sleeping but for some reason I read all of that.
Check out this Japanese movie called Pulse
I saw that and while it's fairly low-budget, it creeped me the **** out, but made me think a lot
ohai little sig.

i was in 8th grade and thought the ring was so horrible and NOT scary

and i'm a complete girly fag...

cannibal holocaust was pretty great though maybe because i'm into gore more than horror lol

Horror movies never scare me, simply because I'm aware that they're movies. If it was a play and the actors/theatre crew was really good at creating the illusion then that's another story.

The ring is scary. Some crazy parts of The Shining too. and One Missed Call. It looks like a typical Japanese horror, and in many ways it is but there were some genuine scary moments in that movie, not jump-shock tricks, freaky-i want to hide-style scary bits.

on another note. I stayed at this girls house and her tv wasnt tuned into any channel. it was about 11am and I was just leaving and the tv said LEAVE in a womans voice. it wasn;t ghostly, just the tv picked up some reseption for a second. **** us up though

Not sure, The Sixth Sense for me was just a good movie that was thrilling. I wasn't like scared ****less or anything. The Ring gave me nightmares back in the day, haven't seen it since so I don't know if it'd still scare me... Most "scary" movies at least the popular ones that I see are pretty bad.

I guess it's considered Mystery&Suspense which I put into the Horror genre.

Watch Unbreakable, it's a lot like The Sixth Sense since it's by the same director and I think it's even better overall, also it's a really unique way to do a comic book movie(even though it's not based on a real comic book) since it has hardly any action and focuses on drama and key comic book themes instead, it's not nearly as scary as The Sixth Sense but it does have it's moments.

horror movies never get me though. seeing someone getting his eyeballs poked out with needles isnt scary. it just makes you cringe for the shock factor. the weirdness in the sixth sense is what gets me. the psychological aspect of it, the creepy feeling that at any moment you could see a dead person walk out of your hallway into your living room...that scares me.

its all paranoia, but its not a good horror movie if it doesnt give it to you IMO.

Very good point. Although my favorite horror movie is Halloween, I much prefer psychological horror movies.

The movie Mars Attack scared me and still does.

I was very young when I saw it and it creeped me out, still does, I can't watch it without being disturbed.

that wes craven movie (called like 'them' or some short name like that) about the aliens from another dimension that plant black thorns in kids when they're young and then come get them when they're older to eat them or whatever was one of the few movies to truly scare me.

I saw that when I was pretty young and the clown didn't scare me, but when I saw it when I was a little older, it stuck in my head. Now when I take a shower I occasionally look at the drain in a weird way.

Oh yea, when I saw Candyman I always tried to avoid mirrors. And after Psycho my personal hygiene took a dramtic drop too.

dit: Soul Power, me and my mates did that to my friend who was sleeping in the bed at 5 in the morning we all slid under the mattress and kicked it, we were so goddamn evil
