    I hate horror movies, they freak me out too much, but the only one Ive ever liked was not a horror but a slasher, Scream (the original). It wasnt really a teeny-bopper sort of duh-i-know-who-did-it kind of film, it was very well done.

    Like haunted houses, horror movies just freak me out too much. I have seen all the old Nightmare on Elm Street movies, but they just started to get corny after awhile. I won't even read horror books -- I think my imagination is just too vivid!

    Got done with the Child's Play series, sans Bride of Chucky. Would like to see the rest of the Nightmare on Elm Streets...seen the first one. Eventually I'd like to get through Friday the 13th series and Halloween.

    As for the horror movies in the present...Scream Trilogy, Urban Legends 1 & 2. Didn't like the i know what you did last summer. Not only was the title too long, it didn't mesh like Scream or Urban legend did.

    The original Psycho is the best horror film I have ever seen. I also like Silence of the Lambs, but that's more suspense than horror. Hitchcock made the best. North by Northwest, Vertigo, Rear Window, they are very good films and filled with suspense!

    Although true, Hitchcock's best films remain useen by many. These are my favorite Strangers on a Train, Saboteur, and The Man Who Knew Too Much

    I love horror movies...I really don't know why, but I love being scared. Movies with giant slimey monsters don't freak me out, but anything, no matter how strange, that has the slightest potential of happening in real life freak me out.

    I love the Shining (even though the book is better) and I'll agree, House on Haunted Hill is only fun to watch because of Hulk (my highlight of the movie, lol). The Candyman was one of my favs, my (ex)boyfriend was so scared.

    For some reason, the Poltergeist movies scare the crap out of me. I think it's because the first time I saw them was when I was in third grade, but I cannot watch those movies alone.

    How could I forget The Man Who Knew Too Much? Holy cow, that was an awesome film! It was so suspensful and I never knew what the heck was going to happen next!

    I go with the world's first true scream queen with Jamie Lee Curtis in the original Halloween. My other fav's are the Hellraiser series simply because they are packed with gore, and classic horror's like Christine and Carrie. However, only one movie ever scared me in my life--Poltergeist, but then again, I was but a little kid when I first saw it.

    Now that you mention it, I did see Christine...nothing at all like the book, at least how I imagined it. I'd like to see Carrie and Cujo (Stephen King fan). I remember seeing The Langoliers on TV; and will eventually get through the book, "The Green Mile".
