3 Films That Really Scared Me.
Horror fans will often be heard discussing the scariest films they have ever seen. And perhaps this is because the majority of human beings have an insatiable desire to be frightened out of their pants; even if they won’t openly admit to it! So learning about other creepy movies from friends is a great way of acquiring new ‘fear fodder’. After all, there may be thousands of different Horror films to choose from out there, but some of these are a whole lot scarier than others…
Here are 3 of the most frightening movies that I have seen over the years –
‘The Shining'(the original one, NOT the remake!)
It’s a wonder I ever plucked up enough courage to watch this film at all because the novel had already scared the beejaysus out of me several times over!
Jack Nicholson is perfectly cast as the frustrated writer with a drink problem whilst the deserted hotel is one of the best settings of all time for a Horror movie.
‘The Grudge’ (the proper Japanese version)
This was a serious eye-opener for me. I had watched oodles of scary films prior to this yet (much to my shame) I had never seen a Japanese one before.
And because Japanese film makers have a completely different approach when it comes to Horror, you never know quite what to expect. These guys could even manage to create a movie about office furniture and scare you witless!!!
‘REC’ (and I mean 1 and 2!)
I’d already been bowled over by the superb ’28 Days Later'and I wasn’t expecting to see another top notch zombie flick shambling around for quite some time… So when ‘REC'came along I was very, very impressed. I was also very, very scared!
This movie really does rank highly on the old ‘Fear-ometer'and its sequel is equally as good!
