It's a little early, but let's share our favorite scary movies. It needn't be a Halloween movie, just the one that really scares you enough that you can't watch it alone.
Not exatcly a Halloween Movie but close- A Clockwork Orange
Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump
First War of the Worlds movie (1953). I had nightmares for at least a year after.
I love true scary movies. But I detest hack n slash. So it's hard to find one that sends shivers down my spine. The 1st War of the Worlds movie is a good one. Must admit I've never seen A Clockwork Orange. I know that this sounds silly, but when I was in the Army and living in the barracks, I lived on the 2nd floor. I went to see Jaws. That night, I woke up from a nightmare that the shark was attacking.
Jaws.I remember sitting in the cinema with Chris and Cath who was eight then.When the head fell out of the bottom of the boat I jumped out of my seat.Still haven't lived it down.Happy Days!
Stir of Echoes was one that stuck with me back when I first saw it. Not sure why it scared me so much; but not "hack n slash" if that helps.
Jaws. All psychological.....the fear of deep water and not being able to see or know what is down there.
... but seriously... The Exorcist
Oh, really, homedoggy....the Exorcist. I don't even want to go down that road!! . Rocky Horror, though, absolutely hiliarous!
I couldn't find the first movie I thought of, from the last century, (and grossed myself out looking for it ) so I'll give you the second...
My favorite classic scary series of all time has to be the 4 Dr. Hannibal Lecter Series , even more scary reading them
How about Young Frankenstein
Homedoggy, you've found the most entertaining, funny scary movies. I like those choices. I've never seen any of the Dr. Lecter stuff riverrat55.
Anyone who has missed Rocky Horror Picture Show has missed a classic. There's nothing like seeing Tim Curry in bright red lipstick, black fishnet stockings and high heels dancing. I fell in love with his acting then and there. 🤩
@gmaterre movies or books by Thomas Harris in order
1) Red Dragon
2)Silence of the Lambs
gmaterre...that scene in Rocky Horror was just THE BEST! I've loved it from the moment I first saw it...way back in 1979! ROFL. (Maybe, just maybe, it was early, early 1980...can't really remember. )
