I have seen plenty of horror movies but almost never / rarely got scared.
Are there any new horror movies from 2008-2013 that are actualy rly scary?
I have seen all the new stuff which got so much praise for being rly scary like Insidious, Conjuring or all the paranormal movies but I never got scared by any of those movies.
Plz suggest some horror movies that will actually scare me.
 
During the last 3 years the only horror movie that rly scared me like hell was
the Fourth Kind.
Can you suggest some scary movies which are intense like this one and which will actually scare me?
 
Thx

Nothing recent I can think of, sorry (modern horror is all about f*cking jump scares). These two are classics:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070917/

 

The second one is a favorite of mine (I like The Shining, the first one, too, but I much prefer the book).

everyone has different ideas of what "scary" is.

but try this one; Antichrist from 2009.

Lol, The Conjuring didn't scare you but The Fourth Kind did? I guess people have different opinions about what is scary. The Fourth Kind didn't scare me a bit, I didn't buy it was a true story and it probably is. It's not that hard to fake some homemade footage and add it to the film to show what it "really looked like".

Anyway, it seems like ghost movies doesn't scare you. But the most terrifying ghost movie I've seen is the original "The Eye" from China. It's called Gin Gwai. It's from 2002 and has some genuinly intense and terrifying moments like the ghost in the elevator.

 

Also, why limit yourself to 2008 - 2013? Most movies today are garbage. You will find true gems before the 21st century.

The Forth Kind scared me too. Why though? Okay, I think it has everything to do with the movie being based off true events. Seems like to me the events that happened in that movie could have actually happened to anyone anywhere. It just happened in a little town in Alaska.

 

Now, new movies out these days that are not based on true events. Just plain fictional just doesn't scare me or do anything for me really.

 

Okay, my scariest non-fictional movie has to be a documentary I found on You Tube a few years ago. It was when I was trying to figure out how the world really works. Like who really runs the country, who controls our wealth, things like that.

 

Here's the link:

It's around 1 hour 52 min. long. But it is by far the scariest movie I ever saw. Non-fiction is always scarier then fiction to me atleast.

It might not be hard to fake homemade footage but what if it happened to you and you were laughed at, eh? You can't possibly doubting something you haven't even experienced nor believe in. The exorcist was a true story and it was proved as well.

Mama is as scary as movies get these days. Not really too scary but very surreal and interesting.

Horror isn't my favourite genre due to me being rarely scared. They rarely do anything for me. having said that, VHS had some spooky moments.

VHS is so goddamn good. Watch this sh*t right now people. Between the Amateur Night short (highlight of the series by far) and Second Honeymoon there's a lot of scares. SH is particularly notable because of how mundane it is; all the other shorts have some traditional horror-film elements to it, but SH is just brutal and creepy. It feels almost like a snuff film.

 

The second one is a lot more fun and less scary, but also worth a watch. Safe Haven is just brilliantly bonkers.

 

Edit: Just realised my post might be a bit confusing if you don't know about the films or didn't watch the trailer. The V/H/S films are anthologies, meaning there are a number of short films contained in one feature length film. Amateur Night and Second Honeymoon are two of the shorts in V/H/S (the first one) and Safe Haven is one from V/H/S 2. There are only 2 films so far, but the model of having a number of directors working on short films means there's a very quick turnaround on them. I imagine number 3 won't be too far off.

This is actually similar to that Alien movie about a female alien trying to mate with other human beings, killing one after another. In this one, the "succubus" or whatever it's called is just dirtier and looks like a half fish.

I have a hard time watching those 'found-film' type of horror movies.

ever since the Blair Witch; they're almost all the same.

 

not hard to watch because they're scary but in they're always too long with no real payoff.

it's usually just excessive handheld camera scenes which give you motion sickness combined with a host of relatively cheap special effects (like the flying dishes in the kitchen). is it so much to ask for some originality in our horror flicks? I dunno...

Which is probably why you'll like the VHS films. The longest short in the series is like 18 minutes long (barring the "framing" stories, but they're admittedly pretty bad). There's not much time for filler in the shorts at all really and when you;re telling such short stories they need a proper payoff.

 

I might be full of it though. I love the first one so much not only because I think it's entertaining and a great watch, but also because it's interesting from a film studies perspective. The literal take on the male-gaze and inherent misogyny of horror films is a big talking point.

Horror movies just aren't scary. They're all just so cheesy. Doesn't mean I don't like them though. I mainly watch them for the death scenes.

Insidious was the last one that genuinely creeped me out. Then again, I'm a pussy when it comes to watching scary movies.
