number one the conjuring definitely the scariest movie I've seen in a long time I also enjoyed: mama, drag me to hell, a Haunting in Connecticut, Nightmare on Elm Street (the new one), Ghostship, Case 39, urban legends Bloody Mary, would you rather, Sinister, sorry the list is so long but I'm somewhat of a horror nut so far i own 92 horror movies

Honestly, the old ones with lame effects such as Evil Dead or The Curse Of The Mummy or even Dracula. Why? Because they started this whole horror movie business. In their times, the thought of a horror movie was almost unthinkable, extremely queer and sort of off putting. The lame affects where wowzers back then too, real shit. They helped shape our horrors today, really.
silent hill is more disturbing then scary...i love the creatures!! :D most asian horror movies are scary....like the ring or dark waters or the eye i think...and umh....hmm.....the posession is sad at the end...:'(
