    It depends. Most movies aren't as much scary as they are just gory. Hostel would certainly fit the gory characteristic, as would all the Saw films. I just saw the 3rd one last weekend. I haven't seen Wolf Creek, but it is in my Netflix Queue. But if gore is you poison of choice, then I'd go with the Saw films. Hostel was just horrible in my opinion. Not much of a plot, and not enough gore to make up for that.

    The scariest movie i have ever seen was The Exorcist. This is just one gun nut's humble opinion.

    I see movies like Hostel, Saw, and Wolf Creek (funny how more than one of us lumps those three together!) for the morbid curiosity of, "Oooh, what sick ways are they gonna mutilate and torment the victims?!" Certainly not because they're gonna have award-winning performances or storylines! It's just a fascination with the gore, shared by many.

    If you want scary, not just gory, I would recommend the first "Jeepers Creepers." (Even the second one was pretty good.) Jeepers Creepers kind of stood some horror cliches on their ear. I liked it a lot. (The brother and sister have a great at-each-others'-throats-with-the-teasing dynamic.)

    Let us know what you go with, and what you think of it, okay?

    I'm a big horror fanatic. I'm not an expert on trivia with them, but I know what I like and its hard to scare me. To give you an idea about my line of thinking for movies:
    -I did not like any of the Saw series. IMO, I just thought they were hokie.
    -Dawn of the Dead Remakes - I love them for their "funny factor." About as scary as cleaning your carry weapon, though.
    -Hostel and WolfCreek... seem to being going for the "shock" factor and not actually as good and scary as they could have been with a little more thought. Hostel was interesting because it its supposed to be based on a true story. Thats a pretty liberal term, though. They are both worth the rent cost, but not the $20+ to see in theaters.

    Given how I feel about some of those movies, and what you think of them, take my reccomendations or leave them in the trash. haha People have as varied opinions about horror flicks as we do about Glocks. hahahaha I can't wait to see where this thread goes.

    My reccomendations:
    -Event Horizon: Lawrence Fishbourne and Sam Neill. Very entertaining with some genuinely scary moments. Only reason one shouldn't like this movie is that its "Sci-Fi."
    -The Ring: I saw this movie 4 times in theaters.... with four different dates. Excellent all around experience.
    -28 Days Later: Not as much a scary movie as just an interesting premise. Has quite a few good parts. Mostly stuff that makes you jump briefly.
    -Shaun of the Dead: Many people consider this to be a scary movie. It is more of a comedy. Very well done. If you are going to watch a second movie of the night, I highly suggest this one. Horror with plenty of levity.

    The exorcist definitely has a "spook" factor and is one of my favorite movies....
    Most people think it is an evil movie, however I find it to be the opposite in that it exposes evil for what it is....
    In reality, satan denies his own existence, hence "the deceiver" moniker......

    Fallen was good.

    However, I forgot the scariest movie of them all:

    Bowling for Columbine.

    Not exactly horror but how about Evil Dead and Army or Darkness.
    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)

    One of my all-time favorites: "Army of Darkness" is a classic and very funny.
    "Evil Dead" is the first in Rami's series (Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness) - not very good imo .

    "The Hills Have Eyes" (the new version - released to video about 1 month ago) - most excellent.

    "The Exorcist" - certainly one of the best in its genre.

    "The Shining" - another classic - expecially good if you like Jack Nicholson.

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Our favorite, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Curry in drag. Is there anything more horrific?
