    Agreed. The "hockey mask" type scare-flicks usually just make me yell at the sheer stupidity of the bimbos walking through the woods at night...but then again, they can be fun to watch sometimes.

    I agree, they can be good fun but almost never scary. Unlike something like 'The Ring' (the original version) in which you had to supply your own horror or the older movies like the Wickerman which had to do everything via the plot rather than rely on effects.

    Good ones. Jaws just plain scared the bejesus out of me as a kid, as did The Exorcist to my brother, who literally would wake up screaming after he saw it once. The Ring was an intelligently-done horror flick that didn't rely on a whole lot of gore to be horrifying. And I like Rob Zombie's stuff, well, because he is a scary dude with a twisted and warped mind.

    I have seen a few of the classics Psycho, The Exorcist (that may be all) and just had nightmares and felt sick. Why do you want to see these things?

    Oh, I am far from cool. :o I wish I understood the interest. I was such a wussy, scared cat as a child and I guess I still am. I remember seeing The Portrait of Dorian Grey at 17 and sleeping with my parents!
