    'It' based on Stephen King's novel, the first horror movie I saw as a kid. Left lasting impression and made me feel nauseaus for days.
    Cannot comment on other horror films, since this is not the genre I've ever enjoyed. All quite unpleasant.

    Saw this one. I remember it as a suspense thriller, mystery. Actually, I liked it quite a bit.

And a performance from Dern that will go beyond probably anything you've ever seen and that you won't believe is actually happening.
    Finished the movie. Dern was amazing, great contrast between her personalities. Cinematography was great. I thought the best parts were in the middle, when things kept building, and were about to explode. The later half started becoming silly to me.

    Awesome, glad you liked it! While drafting the film in the mid-90s, Lynch consulted Captain Beefheart and the entire movie ended up being directly inspired by Trout Mask Replica. Just kidding

    Probably the Hammer Horrors, which are about as scary as Doctor Who (i.e., not much). The Devil Rides Out is good fun.

    This is a hard one based on the opening criteria because scary is relative to different people.

    I have approximately 3,000 horror movies in my collection. My personal favorites are still the ones I grew up on:

    The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari
    Nosferatu
    The Phantom Of The Opera
    Frankenstein
    Bride Of Frankenstein
    Son Of Frankenstein
    Dracula
    The Wolfman
    The Mummy
    Creature From The Black Lagoon
    The Invisible Man
    King Kong
    Godzilla
    The Blob

    Now those movies aren't going to be scary to most folks these days but I never tire of seeing anything with Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Sr. & Jr, Claude Rains, Giant Monsters, etc.

    For some scary is an uncomfortable atmosphere which makes me think of movies like like "Alien".

    For some scary is jump scenes which makes me think of something like "Jaws".

    For some it's a religious thing that they believe in which makes me think of "The Exorcist".

    For others is the reality of a helpless situation which makes me think of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or even "Deliverance".

    I haven't found anything in a movie scary since I was probably 6-8 years old, but I can feel uncomfortable. Watching someone in a helpless situation makes me feel uncomfortable. Watching someone trapped in isolation in the dark much like Alien can make me feel uncomfortable. A loud jump scene can make me jump but it's not so much what's happening on the screen as it is a sudden loud noise that I wasn't expecting. I don't find blood or gore scary. I don't find Slashers scary although I enjoy them. I think the more realistic the situation the more scary something is.

    Well, that was crazy ride. I also just read a short bio on Susan Cabot the lead actress. She had a pretty rough end to her life.

    Btw, I was disappointed by the costume compared to the poster, but the killings in the movie made up for it.
