Ringu was disturbing. The Grudge was also very, very creepy... it makes me want to see the four Japanese films that it came from. Also, the whole Dead series by George Romero absolutely terrified me. The newer versions of the movies, the 1990 Night Of The Living Dead and the 2004 version of Dawn Of The Dead, were scary, but not as terrifying as the old ones. It wasn't the gore, zombies, or effects that scared me, it was the idea of what happened that bothered me so much.

The 4 films are two v-cinema films (Japanese straight-to-video releases) and then 2 theatrical remakes... The director Takashi Shimizu has then remade the first theatrical movie again for an American audience... I've not seen the American version yet (I'm intrigued by it) but have seen the two Japanese theatrical films and they're both very good, especially the first one (which is out on R1 dvd some time soon). The American remake of Ringu was actually ok (better than I'd hoped), I still prefer the Japanese original though.

elrosthis is a list in yahoo movies of the most scary movies what is you most scary movie in this list for me its a tie betwween silence of the lambs and the shining

Really scary movies don't exist anymore. Perhaps maybe 30 years ago they would have scared people shitless.... People see too many violent acts and deaths on media these days, which makes violent acts and deaths on film not scary. I think a study found that children see on average 10 acted deaths on TV a day. If I was to choose what I thought was the film I think would be most scary to young'uns, I would choose Silence of the Lambs.

If you look only to the West then your statement that there are no scary movies holds very much true... However in such places as Korea and Japan they are turning out some very creepy, unsettling and, dare I say, scary movies... Sadly these movies don't really get imported over to the West, America tends to just buy the remake rights, guts them of anything good, Westernises them, puts in some pretty teen stars, markets them to mall teens and then sits back and counts the cash!

Yeah most movies now a days are just good for a laugh. The only movie that I was ever scared to the point were I slept with the light on was The Exorcist, mainly becuase it was an evil that you cant see or touch. Like Jason and freddy movies I could just grab a knife and ram it into their nuts but with the exorcist it was like an invisible evil all around you. Plus I find its the only movie with an eary atmosphere when I watch it.
