The Changeling with George C. Scott.
As if the very opening scene wasn't scary enough for a family man.
The thumping sound and the brief glimpses of a young face under water...
This is the only movie that *seriously* creeped me out.

I remember watching Jaws back in middle school. During lunch break, they would show a movie in the theatre and it only took a dime to get in. It would take a whole week to see just one movie, starting on Monday and ending on Friday. That Friday the entire theater jumped and screamed something awlful. It was awesome.

Some of the slower scenes in Fargo creeped me a bit as well. Like when 'Marlboro Man' was sitting in the room all by himself.

The Changeling was the first movie I ever saw that used stereo effects to scare you (the child's voice behind you, etc.). I was really impressed (and scared) at the time. But I wonder how it translates to home viewing? Now I want to see it again to check it out in 5.1 Dolby

The Changeling + 5.1 = envy
I'll bring some pizza and a few brews.

i have to agree with Just Checking about the original Night of the Living Dead movie. i went with a bunch of friends and the movie was over sold, so we down in front of the first row and layed on the carpet. mind you, this was when theatres were still BIG and had BIG screens. now imagine laying down below that big screen and looking up to see a bunch of living dead walking around. an interesting experience.

and like raniday, the first Alien had me on the edge of the seat throughout most of it. odd that the rest of the series seemed mundane.

and let's also give a nod to Hitchcock. Psycho and Vertigo were great.

and what was that one where the house, in fact the whole subdivision, was built on an ancient Indian burial grounds. that was the one where the little girl is watching the static on the tv and says something like, 'they're baaa-aack!'.

ya gotta love a good scare movie

In the original Carrie, at the end. Her friend goes to visit Carrie's grave. While she is sitting on the grave that hand reaches out from the dirt and grabs her. I've seen that movie a lot--and even though I know it's coiming, it still gets me...
