    Don't laugh but I was terrified of Michale Keaton in Pacific Heights.

    Ditto. I managed to catch that movie at age 7, and it remains the only film that scares me to this day.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    My pick is The Preacher in "Night of ther Hunter".

    I had nightmares for years after seeing the movie thinking he was coming to get me.

    Compared to him the Terminator is a quitter.

    I agree...top 5..... Night of the Hunter is a classic.

    "Children.....Children...."

    That still gives me the creeps.



    My pick is



    Darth Vader.

    No way. Jack did a great job but I would've kicked the shit out of him early on.

    I know I've said this before too. The Exorcist was not scary. It's almost funny. I might have felt different had I seen it before a certain age.

    I read the book before I saw the movie. The book is a masterpiece of terror. There is a quote by HP Lovecraft that says something about the greatest horror being that which is unseen.

    You see the statue of the demon in the Middle East when Father Damien is digging on the archaeology site, and the shadow in the background during the exorcism, but nothing else. The power of what is suggested is brilliantly wrought.

    And the scene with the dogs fighting between father Damien and the statue of Pazuzu in Iraq is so evocative of the struggle between the priest and the demon for the possession of the little girl. Give me chills just thinking about it.

    The clock stopping was pretty scary too.

    Subtlety can be really scary.
