No 1 – The Exorcist, directed with unbelievable intensity by a madman. Scares the crap out of me. And I’m an atheist!

No 2 – The film Martin Scorsese describes as the scariest film ever made. A ghost story with no visible ghosts.

No 3 – Alien. A horror/sci-fi hybrid with the best monster ever created on film and loads of psycho-sexual subtext.

Honorable mentions go to The Thing, The Fly and some recent films by James Wan who I think could become a great horror director, he’s a genius at misdirection for example, problem is he’s still terribly young. Give him time to mature and he’ll be up there with the greats.

      • Jesus Camp is certainly terrifying! Funny. I’ve never found The Shining scary. It’s a tremendous piece of film making and I admire it enormously. The only bit I find alarming is the sudden cut to Jack Nicholson frozen in the maze. There’s something ludicrous about it, yet it really unnerves me. But then I think a lot of scary things have a slight element of the ludicrous about them.

    2. Too late! I have seen Room 237 and thought it was great. Didn’t ruin the movie for me at all and gave me a whole new perspective on it.
