    Yeah, definitely when I watched it the first time when I was 5 years old. And many times since. But after the special effects revolution earlier in the 2000's, it doesn't feel scary anymore.

    The last great horror/suspense movie I warched was Get Out. Still in theatres. Has a 99% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. It was definitely creative.

    Yeah. Great movie. The climax really toyed with my mind, as it was unexpected and not obvious why it happened until later. Defifnitely one of my favourites. The Changeling with George C. Scott is also great. The ultimate ghost story.

    For recent movies of the type, I'll stay with "Cabin in the Woods." Not really a first-class scarer, but a horror puzzler of the highest order.

    The original Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) with Kevin McCarthy, and The Exorcist.

    This would've made my list too, but I didn't consider it to be horror, at least to the arbitrary degree I was applying to my choices. But, if we're infact counting it, consider it one that should've been on my own list, as well as Hitchcock's The Birds (which was simply forgotten when I put it together).

Lynch has a rare ability to impress scenes on the mind, psychologically, as if from a real nightmare that has actually occurred to you once. And Inland Empire doesn't hold back.

    It also features Laura Dern as the lead protagonist in an unbelievable performance that I would rank as the second greatest in film history (behind only Isabelle Adjani from Zulawski's Possession).
    I started watching Inland Empire. It's an interesting movie. I figured it was supposed to make you feel confused between reality and not, a movie inside a movie, like 8 1/2, Truman Show, or Anguish (a more conventional horror). I like the cinematography. It us easy to make you wonder about reality, because of all the power the director has, in jumping between scenes of the movie in a movie and out.

    It's been a while since I watched it, so I don't remember exactly when it starts really falling headlong down the rabbit hole of all rabbit holes, but if you haven't gotten too far in yet, you still have quite a ride ahead of you. And a performance from Dern that will go beyond probably anything you've ever seen and that you won't believe is actually happening.

    Sounds optimistic, and feel a bit excited. But I sometimes tend to overanalyze.

    This should be a function one could apply to not just oneself, but to other users' posts too from time to time!

    You mean deleting someone else's post if you find it annoying?

    The first 'Halloween' by John Carpenter and Brian de Palma's 'Carrie', for conventional horror. 'The Collector' with Terence Stamp, 'Henry: Portrait of a serial killer' and the Dutch film 'The Vanishing' for the most chilling portraits of psychopathy.
