      Hey PStrat community,

      Me and some buddies are getting together to watch a slew of scary movies but don't really know what to watch?

      Current list:

      Mirrors
      Mirrors II
      Nightmare on Elm Street

      Hopefully you can tell me if these are horrible picks or suggest better movies ;)

      Josh

      I fell asleep everytime I tried to watch Mirrors so I don't find it that scary.. just bloody. My suggestions would be:

      The Omen
      The Dark
      The Exorcist
      The Exorcism of Emily Rose
      Saw (all of them)

      That's all I could think of atm.

      a morepork (new zealand owl) flew into the window halfway through which was also scary as

      Alien @ Aliens obviously ;)

      Also, dont forget about first two series of good old Outer Limits.

      If they really want something scary instead of remembering the nineties (possibly never seen before) they might try El Espinazo del Diablo (El Laberinto del Fauno from the same director, but this is bit more known). Both in spanish, but deffo worth seeing ;)

      I saw Insidious like two days ago. I didnt like it so much from some reason. But it is very well rated and surely one of best new scary movies...

      I saw a lot of scary movies and the most I liked REC and REC 2 (original spanish movie not american crappy remake...) from survivals and Shutter : They are around us (again original thailand movie not american remake...Dont know why americans have to screw up every great scary movie by making crappy remake :) ) from mysterious

      I wouldn't go with Saw.. they are just bloody and painful to watch. And I don't recommend watching all movies at the same night. That can seriously impact on your mood in next few days :)

      You should try Hostel. It's not that scary, but I would call it disguisting. I never get really into a movie, but watching this one I was about to puke several times :)

      I can get away with scary films, but blood/guts/gore is just too much. Saw/Hostel = (insert skype puke sign)

      I don't like movies where theres just gore and violence, unf rarely any good horror movies come out these days, looking forward to Stake Land and Dont be afraid of the dark



      Dead Silence is awesome as well


      The Grudge was cool enough, The Eye as well(not the american version, it was a bit censored)

      I cant think of anymore right now, but as soon as I do, I'll be back :f_biggrin:

      +1 for dead silence.
      +1 for any slasher movie, they are not scary but they are so awesome.

      I actually liked "mirrors" despite everyone seems to hate it, maybe I just like shitty movies.

      The notebook


      It's really scary, I haven't seen it, but of what I heard is terrifying. I'm really scared of seeing that movie.

      Somehow girls like it.

      I liked Silent Hill , Descent and "The Others" although they aren't really the scariest, i grew up watching old school stuff like Children of the Corn and the older Friday the 13th movies those were classics :)
