    +1, that was a low budget movie that scared the **** out of me. There was something creepy about the B & W film and the way the zombies lumbered around everywhere. They also chewed on real animal guts from the butcher. :eek:
    Pretty graphic for 1968, I worked at the drive-in theater when that was showing.

    There's a good documentary (streaming) about it on Netflix called "The Birth of the Living Dead".

    Not horror. Just straight-up torture porn.

    my definition of what exactly constitutes a "horror movie" is pretty broad. i've watched so many movies, especially dark and disturbing ones. the last movie i can remember right away that really disturbed me in a deep way was "mulholland drive" by david lynch. another one that was pretty extreme was "megan is missing" mentioned by Larry earlier.

    but i consider "breaking bad" to have been a horror story. i guess not in any usual sense, but nothing else had the power of fear to me that BB did.

    I'm not really scared by movies. I may jump a bit during a good suspense scene (like in Alien) but that's about it.

    Way back in the '50s I remember two movies that at least got my attention. The first was one of the Lon Chaney Wolfman movies. Saw it on our TV and remember my older brother running outta the room screaming. He couldn't sleep for awhile. I watched the whole thing. Still like a good werewolf movie.

    The 2nd was "The Creature from the Black Lagoon". They showed this to us at the Community Center on Saturday afternoons and it always caused lots of screaming. Pretty creepy at age 8 or so.

    I think those two stayed with me because I spent about every waking hour most days outdoors. That's where those monsters hung out!

    Yeah that's pretty disturbing to do to a kid. I hope they caught heck for it.

    The only movie that scared me senseless, was a 1957 Hammer movie known in the USA as ' Enemy from Space', UK title was 'Quatermass II', and this scene gave me nightmares for months....see below...

    I think Martyrs is one of the most disturbing movies I've seen...couldn't get it out of my head for days afterward.

    I'd say "Lost Highway" by David Lynch, that scene at the party, where that guy introduces himself, is intense.

    And as another Lynch, Twin Peaks! Bob gave me the creeps.

    Im not sure if it qualifies, because its not really horror, but...The Holy Mountain gives me the creeping willies even now, years after seeing it.

    Alien just felt like a lot of hanging around waiting for something to happen. But when it finally did, look out. I liked Aliens better because it got into it faster.

    I can't take sadistic movies. Rape and torture and all that is just too messed up. The only movie I'll watch for a scare that could fall under "sadistic" is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Mortifying.

    The original Halloween still bugs me out. Da dum dum da dum dum da da da dum dum da dum dum

    The Exorcist is the only scary movie I've ever seen that actually had me afraid to get up and move when it was over.

    Slow learner? Or glutton for punishment? :D

    For me, it only takes one of a series to figure out if I really do not want to see any further renditions. Saw and Hostel both fit this bill. Human Centipede I've heard enough about to know it's not for me.

    There are some exceptions though. I started watching "Dumplings" from the asian horror compilation Three...Extremes" and stopped it within five minutes. But just last night I watched another of the movies, and it was good. (Can't recall the name)

    I love an old-fashioned ghost story, and the Spanish have done it best of late...

    The Orphanage is a fabulous, intelligent horror film and I recommend without hesitation.

    Also check out The Devil's Backbone (del Toro at his best), Pan's Labyrinth, which isn't really a horror - more a fantasy - but is still brilliant, and Julia's Eyes and Hiero (both of which are psychological thrillers).
