“The original ‘Halloween.’ The main reason I like it is that I’ve been watching it since I was little, but I also like how the dialogue is written.”

Does To Wong Fu Thanks For Everything count? That was pretty scary. Mine is Killer Klowns from Outerspace and my husband's is the Nightmare on Elm Street Series.

TOB: Loved Shaun of the Dead. As the chaps on the Guiness commercials would say: "Brilliant!"

Halloween - the original one. Lot's of psychological terror. The fear of what you don't see is much more powerful than just plain gore. Out of the entire movie you only see about five seconds of blood.

bd: "'W'. The ending is the best part."I haven't seen it yet. I'm assuming that just before he leaves office the nuclear weapons all go off. It would seem like the only appropriate ending to an inappropriate presidency. Scariest movie: original "Night of the Living Dead." Saw it in the theaters as a kid when it first came out. I should not have been allowed in that theater. It scared the heck out of me, and is the only film that has ever given me nightmares. Of course, now I'm hooked on zombie movies. I think stem-cell research will eventually lead to a zombie army. Honest, I don't see a problem arising from that.
