Scary Movies anyone?

So i just saw The Conjuring, and i must say, SCARIEST movie i have ever seen! 

So i was wondering what the scariest movie you ladies have seen!? I'm not big into scary movies, being that i'm a huge scardy cat, but before i saw The Conjuring, Insidious was pretty scary to me! So what's your favorite scary movie??

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

@LCResz, since you're a fan of del Toro and horror, what did you think of Mama? I still don't know how to feel about it.

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

@malday I think it is typical Del Toro, an exploration of the relationships between parent and children, and the role imaginary friends play in the lives of the developing child. Del Toro has an obsession, I dare say, with mothers who die prematurely and the effect this has son children. He also loves to explore how children who are in psychic pain will seek comfort from even the most hideous of creatures as long as the affection, no matter how twisted, leads to a long term relationship.

 

So whole Mama isn't his best venture it fits in perfectly with his style and themes, so I can appreciate the underlying meaning even if the story was a bit hamfisted. To this day Pan's Labyrinth is one of the most heart breaking movies I've ever watched.

Pan's Labyrinth is so heart wrenching! Pale Man definitely fits in this thread though, so creepy!

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

Pan's Labyrinth is AMAZING, seriously, one of my favorite movies.

I completely agree with it fitting into the themes of most of his other movies. In fact I brought this point up to my boyfriend immediately after we watched it. He seemed to have a problem with the ending but I thought it fit perfectly with del Toro's style. One of the things that bothered me about the movie was the appearance mama herself. So many of his movies and characters are so visually breathtaking and awesome that I feel it kind of missed the mark or could have been better.

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

Totally agree, but I think that was the writers' and directors' vision. Del Toro, as the executive producer, just helps movies get made, giving new comers a chance. I think he'll help anyone who writes a story about orphaned children!

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

Yessss those are some awesome movies. Is it  bad that it bothers me that some people confuse gore and horror? I love both though and I get really surprised when a movie is able to scare me. I dunno why but I love that feeling ha. Don't forget The Shinning though! 

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

OMG I cant... I'm the worst with scary movies, so I'm thankful that I can play the "kids" card and skip out on majority of those movies.  Blood, gore, peoples heads being chopped off... I'm just fine.  But throw in some kind of super natural or  ghostly storyline & I'm OUT!!

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

Omg that may just be the funniest thing i've ever read! I hate when they are based on a true story! Ahh, I'm tempted to look up the real story about The Conjuring!

Re: Scary Movies anyone?

I heard the Conjuring is so disturbing that they had priests outside the movie theater blessing people!  Soooooo not cool Smiley Sad
