Ten scary films (in no order)

Alien
I seen this at the cinema last year and boy oh boy did that make me feel uneasy. I've never had that sense of dread pour over me like those final moments when Ripley is trying to escape.

Legend
I watched this as a kid and that dance sequence and Tim Curry's makeup and his voice gave me nightmares.

Stephen King's It (90s)
Watched this when I was 5 years old, ****ing clowns scared the shit out of me for years, and they were supposed to be fun.

Nightmare Before Christmas
That ending sequence with Oogy Boogy getting his seams ripped open and the torrent of bugs pouring out of him freaked me out, to the point I wasn't comfy around bug's.

Trainspotting
That cold turkey sequence, I wish that would be the end of it. But imagine watching that scene in the middle of the night when you're a kid.

Hour of the Wolf
A favourite of mine. It just gives of a feeling that you're along for the ride and sticks with the characters during their ordeal, trying to question what's real and what's a nightmare.

The Blair Witch Project
I thought it was real and the idea of being lost in the woods is something that I'm still petrified of and especially with the coastal path near my area. I never want to go there in the night.

Halloween
Michael Myers just moving so calmly, never saying a thing just doing what he does, no remorse and that makes me uncomfortable.

Beetlejuice
Entertaining, but the Burton setting and that giant worm terrified me to shit. Also the idea of being dead and trapped within you're home with no way to get out is still something that scares me.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
Freddy Krueger being able to get to you by your dreams gave me terrors as a teenager. Enough said.

Short list for me, only one film has ever scared me, which is why I usually only watch it at night, but seeing as the trailer for the remake dropped earlier, Iím breaking my own rule and am actually watching it right now:

1) Pet Sematary - Because of frigging Zelda!

I've never understood the love for Pet Sematary. As a film it's okay but not sure where this fear factor comes from.

Treb and Rik have always said it shits them up but i just can't see it.

Oh well. Just one of those things i suppose.

I watched Pet Sematary about a month ago and i still feel the same way i always did.
It has some really atmospheric moments and Zelda, the cat and Gage are pretty creepy.
Fred Gwynne is really good as well.

Only problem is the actual family are really bad actors and i really hate the undead spirit guy whose attempts at comic relief really screw up the overall tone of the film.

The new film looks watchable, but i'm not sure about the wicker man kids vibe i'm getting.
Probably end up being half a good film like the original.

To me the power of Pet Sematary comes from the horror of not accepting death and trying to bring back loved ones but instead making the situation worse.

I think it is one of the more disturbing and powerful King novels, especially if you are a parent.

But the main actors screw the original film up for me.

I never thought of Pet Semetary being a horror more chiller factor, I had it on VHS, watched it, people told me about Zelda, ok are was creepy, when I read the book, it was more scary than the movie, I read Misery but can never watch the movie.

I think for me itís because I read the book when I was 11 and it terrified me, then me and a friend had his babysitter rent us the film when I slept over at his house a few months later and it scared the crap out of all three of us, so itís got that nostalgic thing with me and now almost 30 years later Zelda still creeps me out.
Also, watching it as a parent is hard going, I donít even wanna think about what Iíd be like if one of my sons was killed in such an awful way!

Gotta agree with the comments about the actors (apart from the awesome Fred Gwynne) being pretty bad, Denise Crosby is a terrible actress
