Reminds me of Alien.

A quote from The Book of Alien:

"Earlier that day, the visitors, carrying beer and sandwiches to appease their jet-lagged stomachs, were ushered into a screening room and allowed to see a rough cut of Alien. It was actually more of an assemblage than a rough cut. There were no titles and no sound effects. The score had not yet been written, but a substitute amalgam of music had been tacked on for mood. There were a lot of frames that said Scene Missing. The rhythm and pacing were distorted because there was still much editing to be done- inserts and pick-up shots to be completed.
But as the film was being shown, these things happened:
One visitor choked on his beer.
Another knocked over a plate of sandwiches when he lurched violently in his chair.
Yet another, who has viewed practically every science fiction and horror movie ever made, was seen to be peering through his fingers, which were often covering his face."

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

The Norwegian Zombie film Dead Snow is pretty horrifying. Like, when a guy gets his head ripped in half so his brain falls out, or when a girl wakes up to see a zombie eating her intestines.

I feel like that's more disturbing than scary though.

This x10 is what I hope to achieve.

Like I said: Half, if not more, of the audience to leave halfway; the rest to be scared sleepless.

And I have a few ideas on how to do this, too . Among them, LITTLE TO NO JUMP SCARES

Really? I would love to see this movie if you ever make it.
How would you go about doing this, if you don't mind. Or will you not reveal your secrets?

LOL, no. I have no secrets to keep (except the plot/monster*s*)

Basically, I would try to extrapolate what made me, and many others, scared as a kid. Those things that we thought we might have seen but we're never too sure. I also wouldn't be so upfront with the movie monster. Sometimes knowing what it is deflates its level of scary.

Also, SUSPENSE SUSPENSE SUSPENSE

Ah, sounds like a pretty potent mix!
That's one of the reasons why the original Amenityville Horror was good.
They didn't just have "zombified" ghosts terrorizing the family. They were unseen, sometimes unnoticed... All you knew was that something was there.
That's always a good method to use... And so is SUSPENSE SUSPENSE SUSPENSE!

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

Anything that has to do with the devil scares the living **** out of me.

The excorsist and all that **** are the epitome of movies that scare me.

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

The Exorcist is definitely a really creepy movie.

The only scary movie that has actually left an impact on me was It, based on Stephen King's book of the same name. I saw it when I was around five years old, and it just ruined my whole goddamn childhood. Watching it again, it's not a particularly well made movie, but damn is Tim Curry one creepy bastard.

John Carpenter's "The Thing" one of the scariest horror flicks ever I think and really well shot/played!

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

The Exorcist wasn't that scary for me...
The reason might have been because I saw Scary Movie 2 before I saw it.
So seeing some of the scenes made me laugh. But I do understand that for it's time, it was pretty hardcore.
I can't name a movie that has actually scared me though.

The Excorcist has to be one of the most overrated films ever IMO

I think it was quite disturbing and actually lived up to it's name in terms of creepiness, but it definitely isn't one of my favorites.

Oh, and by the way, has anyone seen Bravo TV's 100 scariest movie moments? I think 80% of the list is total BS. Willy Wonka and The Wizard of Oz were on the list(above The Others).

I think I saw that one year... Or at least heard of it.
Here's another horror list that's mostly BS.
50 Scariest Movies of All Time
I don't even think Jaws is on the list, surprisingly.

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

Silence of the Lambs is 41?!

And how did I guess that Saw would be higher? I mean honestly, what does everyone find so scary about that film? Violence ≠ Scary. I haven't seen the majority of the films on the list, but the ones that I have seen are definitely in the wrong places(Suspira is #9, come on, it wasn't that scary). The only film on that whole list that they got right was The Shining being #1.

Oh and for anyone interested, here's Bravo's two cruddy lists.

Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments and 30 Even Scarier Movie Moments | Listology
I agree with you! The list was poorly made... Paranormal Activity didn't deserve number 2. Also, violence doesn't add any element of horror into a movie in my opinion.

Wizard of Oz? Phantom of the Opera?
At least the Top 10 of the list wasn't terrible. But I can't believe those 2 movies made it in there. I remember seeing a preview of the movie Freaks and thinking it looked creepy. Too bad I feel like it'd be so hard to find because since it's an older movie.

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

You'd be surprised, many old movies don't have any copyright holders, the original Nosferatu(1922), for example, can be found on youtube very easily since it's free use.

I agree, the top ten wasn't as bad as the rest, but I still wouldn't have Jaws or Psycho in my top ten. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has some creepy moments, but the majority of the film was boring filler. I've never seen Carrie, Night of the Living Dead, or Wait Until Dark, but I'm pretty sure Night of the Living dead doesn't deserve to be that high. I would imagine that the movie is quite cheesy.

Re: Good Horror Movies? Creepy and Disturbing Movies?

I've seen plenty of the pop-out and gorefests and honestly, all it's ever done is nauseate me. I love when movies are creepy and keep me in a state of psychological discomfort that has nothing to do with watching someone pull their own tooth out or whole fingernail off (I mean seriously, why is this in so many horror flicks?)

My list (in no particular order) is The Others, El Orphanato, The Shining, 1408, Paranormal Activity, Windchill and The Butterfly Effect; all chosen either for really great atmosphere or really great story... or both. Oh, and Signs and The Sixth Sense were pretty awesome. I feel that if the film Mirrors had played up the feeling of helplessness and removed some of the useless gore it could have been a pretty good movie.
