Scariest movies

Since about 4:00 on Saturday, I've been down and out with what I guess is the flu. Yuck! It came on so fast. So...... I haven't been able to get to the studio to work as planned. Hopefully I feel well enough tomorrow to go in. This laying (with a tissue up my nose) is getting old really fast.

So my post today is on musings as I've had a lot of time to watch TV (well actually sleep during most of it) and think. (Not a good idea to think too much, not at my age.)

Anyway, this morning about 6:00 (sleeping on the couch in front of the TV for the past two days) the movie "Signs" came on. I've seen it before (quite a few times before actually) but it still gives me chills. I love vampire and werewolf movies (but not so much psycho movies.) For some reason they don't scare me, but Signs did. There was no ripping to shreds, no blood and guts or gore but I was still sitting on the edge of my seat just the same. (Didn't sleep during this one.) Also, this time I was noticing the camera angles and the scenes which left things to our own imagination (which is far worse than anything we can see.) I do like M. Night Shyamalan movies. He has a quirky mind.

So.... what is your scariest movie? Care to share?

Dark fantasy and very beautiful: Pan's Labyrinth. (Subtitles -- but it's worth it!) Hope you feel better soon!

Ooh yeah! We went to that movie expecting something totally different. I would call it scary and disturbing to say the least. Usually don't like things that are subtitled, but that didn't seem to make a difference. It was one of those movies that we just sat there long after the movie was over. A very powerful movie that I've tried to talk about often, but for some reason keep forgetting the title. Thanks for mentioning it.
