Three films have literally scared the sh*t out of me where I've had to turn off the film and take a breather before returning to it. The American remakes for The Grudge and The Ring (if I had to turn off the remakes, I don't even want to attempt the actual Japanese ones) and then the remake of House on Haunted Hill. Funny enough, with that film, when I returned to it, the second half wasn't scary at all and felt like a completely different movie.

Although William Friedkin doesn't consider it to be a horror film
The Exorcist is still the scariest film for me and ahead of its time. Will never forget my first viewing
Of the modern day era i would say REC and i actually thought the recent Under The Skin was eerie and unsettling
Also A Tale of Two Sisters from asia some films are scary for different reasons like Requiem For A Dream

The Exorcist is one of them. Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1978), not really a horror but has a very unnerving atmosphere. The original Omen I watched when I was younger and that freaked me out!

I have to be honest, I don't think I've ever been genuinely scared at a horror movie. Most recently I remember being quite unnerved by the trailer for The Babadook, but not so much by the film

To be honest I used to think that The Exorcist used to be scary as f*ck but I've seen it so many times now that it's almost funny at some scenes now. I can't watch it with others because they get angry when there scared and hiding behind a cover and I'm sitting there smirking and laughing the whole time. Some folks might think you sadistic or deranged if it makes you laugh but who cares.

I think my new scariest movies would have to be Ju-On and it's American counterpart, The Grudge and Ringu and it's American counterpart The Ring. The story behind Ju-On is pretty damn scary and then to be intensified by a movie makes it all that much more scary. :dead::dead::hurting::smashed::dead::dead: I would also have to say that The Conjuring is up there pretty high too. :ohno:

I found the Ring to be much scarier than Ringu. The original was pretty creepy but the remake managed to ramp up the scare factor.

I haven't seen the grudge since it was released, it scared the hell out of me at the time. If I had to watch it again it would have to be during the day! :ohno:

I tell ya, between The Ring and The Grudge, I don't like being left alone with little kids that seem creepy anymore. :p

The Omen Trilogy, (and the Exorcist) scares the bejebus out of me because of the direct tie in to religion.

In the Japanese version of Ju On : the Grudge, there were a couple more intense scenes that they left out of the US remake

Maybe the PG-13 version. You have to watch the R-rated version of the US remake, it's actually more disturbing than Ju-On. But both are equally scary.

I also think The Ring is scarier than Ringu.
