    Did you know The Maltese Falcon was filmed three times? Of course only Bogie's became a film noir classic.

    I caught "The Thing" on TV when I was about 9 or 10. Waaaay too young for this!

    "Saw" for pure gore.

    "The Babadook" is a cool, newer supernatural thriller.

    I had forgot about “The Thing”, that movie kept one the very edge of your seat through the entire movie. “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” was another all time favorite and I agree Darren McGavin was a perfect choice for Kolchak. I saw the first "Saw" and really did not care for it.

    I remember seeing it as a youngster also, and it scared the crap out of me. I could not believe "Matt Dillion" could be so scary.

    I believe the movie that ruined me for life for horror movies was the original House on Haunted Hill. I remember sitting in the theater and peeking between my fingers as I hoped it would end soon. Now it seems so cheesy, but back then... That acid pool! I still have an issue walking over grated openings.

    the mere premise of a story can be more frightening than the movie itself.

    Now that the future is here, I reflect back and realize how scary "1984" and "A Clockwork Orange" were.

    When I was in elementary school, late 50s-early 60s, I saw a B&W horror movie wherein they warned you that just before a really scary scene appeared, a bell would ring so you could close your eyes if you were afraid to watch it. I peaked, and it was a scene where the scientist cut open some ones forehead with a scalpel. It was pretty tame actually. The loud bell scared me more than most of the movie.

    Cannot remember the name of the film, but it was a doctor/scientist on and island creating odd creatures. I thought it was “The Island of Doctor Moreau, but the dates don’t fit.

    Did it involve face transplanting? I saw one like that once. It scared me too. But then, they all do.

    It was more like turning animals into people or vice versa.....IIRC there was a leopard man or some such creature....

    When we were kids a local movie theater had Saturday matinees that were triple feature, 3 movies for 25 cents. The movies were either westerns or horror films. Me and my two cousins went often during summer vacation from school. They started in the afternoon but by the time they were over it was dark, or getting dark. I remember several times walking home after watching 3 of the old horror films and feeling like something was about to jump out at me. That walk home was at a pretty brisk pace.
