This has a scare but it's not scary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1e7GoDayMw

doesn't halloween just teach fear to kids who then grow up to be scared adults?

My wife doesn't like scary films. Personally, I see no place for the "mad slasher" genre, but I do like those movies where the terror is more imagined than real.

That being said, I watched "The Ring" one time, then hid the DVD away so I would never watch it again...
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Clinton, I agree with the fact that modern "slasher" films are not scary. Sadly, that's what passes for "scary" these days. It's just shock tactics.. So I don't go to see many of the newer horror films.

But give me the old psychological suspense thrillers of the 50's, 60's and 70's, and I'll take a front seat!

I'm with you on that. Slasher films aren't my idea of horror. Besides, "you've seen one, you've seen 'em all."

Anyone have thoughts on the SAW movies? I find the whole premise of "you caused pain/suffering and do not understand how it affected the person and their loved ones so now you will experience it" an interesting plot.

That was kind of the point of Vincent Price's "Abominable Dr. Phibes" movies, too. Used to love watching those late at night as a kid.

Price was a treasure, but now it's difficult to watch him without thinking of Bill Hader.

My wife professes to hate all movies. She sits there and says they are stupid and asks why the kids and I like them if none of it ever happened. Then she falls asleep. I think she has enjoyed the occasional, odd, factual film.


I'm guessing she's not big on novels then, either?

Another of my favorites is The Legend Of Hell House. And The Entity.

My wife doesn't really do horror movies. I may or may not, depending on content- campy horror like Army of Darkness? I'm all over that. Gorn like the Saw series? Not so much.

She will happily go to action films with me, though, and doesn't drag me to rom coms or chick flicks Smile

The whole family snuggled up and watched 3 seasons of American Horror Story. Does that count?

Our first movie date was "My Bloody Valentine."
We both love horror. My wife usually surprises me and finds some really good, off the wall, Japanese horror flick to watch.

And for the record, we met at a bizarre magick convention - The ICBM Gathering in CT. - http://www.icbmmagick.com/

We paired up for the fire breathing/eating portion of Todd Robbins' Sideshow Workshop.

We got married at the Oakwood Crematory Chapel in Troy, NY on Halloween 2010.

I will relate one of my most "fun" experiences I had watching a scary movie with a girl, though Smile

It was while I was in college, and I took my gf to see "Dawn of the Dead" (1978). It was playing the mid-nite movie showings and had done so for years at this theater after its original release. When it came time for the heroes to discuss why things were the way they were, Peter said, "When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth."

That line so affected my date that she dropped her head onto my shoulder Smile


My wife loves scary movies. We saw ''Dawn of the Dead'' opening night in New York City. At the end of the film, there was a scream from the back of the theater. I said to my wife; ''Somebody must have goosed their girlfriend.'' No, when we got to the exit we discovered the ushers had done themselves up as zombies and were waiting for all of us.

She used to take people to see ''Jaws'' so she could watch their expression when the body popped up in the sunken boat. She and I would sit in the back and watch everyone jump back at the point.

She giggled at the reaction of some tough Navy guys at the climax to Jeff Goldblum's ''The Fly.''

We have a good time with horror movies. Smile

A long time ago, I was visiting my cousins in LA, and one of them, a girl about my age, invited me to a three-movie showing with a couple of her girl friends. It was Night of the Living Dead, Count Yorga, Vampire, and something else about a girls' boarding school. One of them was holding a big tub of popcorn and passing it around -- until the first jump scare in Night, when the tub flew up in the air and half-emptied itself on us. At which point I said, gimme that tub, and I was the official popcorn wrangler the rest of the time.

It was also when I thought, gee, wouldn't this be a great time to get a bucket of KFC chicken and sit here munching it...

One of my favorite 'scary' movies was the 1963 "Pit and the Pendulum" with Vincent Price. Scary good...and watch ALL the way to the end!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I used to really enjoy scary movies although some people might not find them scary. I used to love Stephen King's "It" and the John Cusack movie "1408". My wife never really enjoyed movies like that even though she would watch them with me. So, we don't watch them anymore. My taste has changed now and I really don't care for them either now.
