    Interesting how the most scariest movies in that study are also all more recent. The most disturbing part of Sinister to me was the opening scene. I don't feel the movie lived up to it afterwards, and kind of relieved it didn't. I kind of forgot I watched it until I saw the trailer again.

    Based on it results, that scientific study seems to have a flaw in its design.
    I watched the Exorcist and the Changeling when I was very young, like 5 or 6, when my mom and older bro watched them. The Changeling had some great sound and visual editing, which made it too much for a young whippersnapper.

    I would say that Sinister was more disturbing than scary. And yes, I noted that also about the so-called study.

    I'm far from a connaisseur of this genre... just plain horror does not interest me, a combination of horror/thriller is more to my likings.

    Three movies that made a lasting impression:

    The Exorcist (1973)
    Spoorlooos [Dutch] AKA The Vanishing (1988)
    The Blair Witch Project (1999)

    I've also been kind of a fan of flicks directed by Alfred Hitchcock or David Lynch.

    Real horror...... don't watch it, suspense is another thing, like the ones mentioned above post

    The most frightening film I ever saw (apart from "Psycho") was this one: absolutely terrifying.

    Nice pick.
    I was a teen when I saw this movie for the first time... it made a huge impression on me. Me and my friends kept talking about it for weeks.
    Unsolved suspense...

    ^ Just watched Picnic at Hanging Rock from the chitter here. It is a disturbing movie. There's this ever-present sense of dread. Loved the ending.

    I read about the explanation that was originally planned, but agree with the editor it is much more effective unresolved.
