  1. I never watched Exorcist until about ten years ago or so and that movie scared me! I couldn’t finish it while it was dark outside I had to wait till the next day and it was daylight…lol. I really want to try the book version. :)


    • fuonlyknew says:

      That was the first and only movie I ever walked out on. I was a teenager, and it scared me so bad. Now, I’ve watched it and it doesn’t affect me near as much.

  2. Freda Mans says:

    Stormi, I agree. The original Exorcist movie was epic.
    The movie that scared me the most is The Amityville Horror. Anything that is based on real events, and spooky as it was, yup…. I never wanna go to that house. Ironically it is back on the market again for sale. I wonder why?! :-)


  3. I found “The Conjuring 2” to be a fantastic movie and made me jump a few times, when horror movies usually don’t do that.

  4. Kathy Gonzales says:

    Christine by Stephen King , it scare me as a kid!

  5. You rock my dear. kimbacaffeinated at g mail dot com I am loving the Exorcist on tv right now…my kind of spooky!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I have it set to record On Demand. I’m busy catching up on I Zombie and preparing for this Sunday’s new season of The Walking Dead!

  6. I didn’t sleep with the lights of for ages after reading Pet Sematary by Stephan King!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Oh yes. That line Gage says, “I want to play…with you!” I don’t think there was a minute through the whole movie when you didn’t feel creeped out!

  7. I saw the exorcist, but I think The Omen was scarier. I don’t do a lot of movies unless they’re on TV.
    sherry @ fundinmental

  8. miki says:

    i was terrified ( stil is) by the movie IT by stephen King

  9. darkchiibsb says:

    cujo dark_chii_18 (at) hotmail (dot) com

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I always forget Cujo! I think it’s because it was so disturbing. The book and movie had different endings and both were intense. Have you read his book, Gerald’s Game?

  10. darby says:

    darby dot brazoski at gmail dot com. I can think of a few Stephen King books that were super scary!

  11. I found all of Stephen King’s books pretty scary :-)

  12. Gail Rosenstrom says:

    I love scary and horror books and movies so im pretty hard to scare
    moonfairy521 at aol dot com

  13. uptildawnbookblog@gmail ~ I don’t scare easily but still get the chills when I hear Fur Elise (Beethoven) from Stephen King’s movie: IT!

  14. Lee Todd says:

    I’m not a horror movie lover…A Nightmare on Elm Street just confirmed that for me! lol


  15. Tanya Guthrie says:

    My parents let me watch pretty much whatever all growing up so I grew up with Freddy and Jason, but I had this doll that looked just like Chucky. Needless to say being as I was under 9 years old at the time I was beyond freaked out and I still won’t watch the Child’s Play movies! Tanyamarieward*at*hotmail*dot*com

  16. Karen DeVaney says:

    I remember reading Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews as a young teen and being so scared.

  17. Lauren Becker says:

    Oh, I don’t know. I used to freak out a lot easier when I was younger, so I tended to avoid spooky things! Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a pretty freaky film though.

    lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

  18. The Exorcist was extremely scary for me!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Funny you mentioned that movie. I just watched it again last night. The uncut version. Still a scary one!

  19. Oooohhh that’s a hard one. Lots of movies have scared me lately like Don’t Breathe but my all time favorite scary movie would have to be Jeepers Creepers! Still gets me after all of this time!

  20. I don’t watch horror movies since I’m too chicken! Suspense books from Lynette Eason and Irene Hannon always have me biting my nails and sleeping with the lights on.

    colorvibrant at gmail dot com

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I love suspense. That’s probably why I enjoy the old black and white vampire films. They didn’t have CG and the technology we do now, so they relied on music, tense scenes, and light and shodow to fill you with dread.

  21. Sheena Wapneski says:

    Both Christine and I scared me as a kid. I actually like Christine now but still won’t watch It!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      That’s like King’s movie Cujo. I even have it on DVD and can’t make myself watch it again.

  22. Anne C says:

    I’m a horror movie fan and I’ve watched a lot. Some movies I loved are Babadood and Drag Me to Hell.

  23. Crystal Cox says:

    My mom took me to see Poltergeist at the drive in at a very young age and that movie scared the tar out of me and even to this day I hate clowns. And no I have never watched It lol.

  24. Judy Thomas says:

    The book that scared me the most was The Stand by Stephen King because it could happen.

  25. Sylvia M. says:

    I’m with Heidi and don’t watch horror movies. The book that scared me the most was The Truth Seeker by Dee Henderson.


  26. Zoe says:

    The movie that scared me the most was Coraline. It’s such a unique and thrilling movie. Plus, those button eyes were hella scary.

  27. Paranormal 2 and Blair Witch Project were very scary.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      The first two Paranormal Activity movies were great. And The Blair Witch Project was an epic in a new genre of found footage!

  28. Leah says:

    World War Z scared me but not because of the zombies, the idea of a worldwide problem like that is scary. 😛

  29. Allie L says:

    The Conjuring 2 movie scares me the most right now.
    iheartmemorethanyou at yahoo dot com

    • fuonlyknew says:

      The scene with the wall. So creepy good! It might have took a while to get going, but boy, when it did!

  30. Ana M says:

    I have to say The Shining (movie) really scared me.


  31. Tiffany D. says:

    Halloween is by far the scariest movie to me. Michael Myers has been haunting my dreams for years. Thank you!


    • fuonlyknew says:

      Showing my age here, but I went and saw that along with a couple others for a scary marathon at the drive-in theatre. Scared me so bad. It was a new genre then, slasher films, and was almost more than I could take.

  32. lorih824 says:

    I’m not crazy for scarey and I have a 4 year old who doesn’t like it either . However as a teenager I watched The Shining and it creeper me out ?
    Happy Halloween!

  33. Sara Theissen says:

    One movie that scared the wits out of me for months was V/H/S

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I really liked the first collection. The second, not so much. Have you seen it?

      • Sara Theissen says:

        I have! The second one wasn’t as scary to me. But the first one really just freaked me out. Specifically the short where the couple in the hotel room are being filmed by someone that broke in, and then killed. Freaked me out for months.

  34. Loretta Sullivan says:

    I never got over the original Psycho!

  35. Penny Olson says:

    The Shining.
    penny dot olson at gmail dot com

  83. Elin says:

    I don´t remember the name, and I don´t really want to look it up either. The one scene I remember over and over is the big clown sitting in a chair and the babysitter asks the parents in the phone abut that scary clown staring at her. They don´t know what she´s talking about and when she looks over again it´s gone…
    I do generally like scary movies, but after that I can´t see any movie with a clown in it again.

    Waaaay back in the early 70’s I was a huge fan of anything Dark Shadows, so when the movie House of Dark Shadows came out, naturally I begged my dad to let me see it.
