I agree with The Birds, i was only really young, prob too young to watch it, but im not too good with birds even now lol!
REC is definately scary.
and yes I can see the Donald Sutherland thing aswell.
also cant remember exactly but i think was an episodes of the avengers, anyway had something to do with rats, n i had to check under the bed for weeks after, was convinced i could hear scratching.... again too young i think.

The only time I have ever been genuinely scared by a film was as a teenager, late one night, watching the climax of 'The Wicker Man', starring Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee and Britt Ekland. No monsters, no demons, no supernatural evil - just people doing really nasty things to someone... as they do.

Scariest film, for me its Un Chien Andalou (1928) silent, B/W makes no sence at all , but the first 30 seconds close up of an eye ball being cut in half by a razor blade, im feeling bad just thinking about it now, it's o.k it was a cow's eye that was cut but i didn't find that out till years later. Not being shown on TV even now in the 21st century, now
thats scary. Total respect to Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali.

Was this the one with the little green men in the fireplace? If so, also my scariest nightmare-inducing movie too!

I agree that the scare quotient of D C Harrison's two cited 60s/70s films is high - but the most horrifying of that vintage for me was "Compulsion", directed bu Roman Polanski.

The Night of the Demon..old b/w movie...classic!

I'd go with Compulsion, too. The plaster soft walls, the cracking walls, the killing of Patrick Wymark by slicing across the back of his neck with the cutthroat..........chilling. Oh, and the flies on the meat!
I'd put Rosemary's Baby in there too for the sheer sense of dread it evokes.

May I say how much you made me laugh? At 18, waiting to go to college, I was a cinema usherette and saw the Sound of Music twice a day for six weeks! It still hurts.

Can I suggest Hill House, an old but very scary film best watched alone in the dark.

'Bob' in Twin Peaks. A regular visitor to my nightmares for years. I guess it's most to do with David Lynch's direction. And the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz.

'don't look now' that midget with the knife and the girl in the red coat. sent me hysterical. Alien was pretty good too.

I'd go for Lost Highway, a truly dark masterpiece directed by David Lynch.

Seeing Friday the 13th at a friends house when I was about 10. Last seen where Jason grabs the woman in the canoe. Parents went ballistic when they found out. Hasn't changed my viewing habits. Love horror, but have to fast forward through the end of the film. Also The Blair Witch Project, watched it again yesterday. Still freaked me out. LOL

Halloween - first saw it on Halloween night when I was about 10. It finished around 1am and I then had to go to my bedroom alone for the night. I was so scared, even now 15 years later it stil gives me the creeps.

You don't know fear until you see Ju-On The Grudge, forget the American version, the original Japanese film is utterly terrifying, definately not adviced viewing if you're on your own. I recommend it.
