Anything remotely Stephen King related is enough to terrify the living wits out of me.
Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world awaits in darkness for the light that is you.
^1408 is a really creepy Stephen King book-turned-film, the clock scene terrifies me the most.
Jack, I'm not sure if The Wicker Man would class as a horror, maybe more of a psychological thriller. Very clever film indeed, good to watch if you don't like gore and think special effects can ruin things sometimes. The ending is very scary; worth watching (not the remake, that's terrible).
There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself. My spoken words.
I aint no abacus but you can count on me.
Haven't read the rest of the thread yet, so I don't know if it's been recommended but Cabin in the Woods, watched it last night, really good. nods to all the best horror movies, deliberately plays on the old slasher movie formula and has a surprising ending.
Don't be fooled by my smooth skin. The deepest scars are the ones unseen.

Pulse. Watched it the other night, no gore in it, although it can be triggering, has a lot of suicide in it (which is part of the plot of the movie). I hated it, but then again, I hate horror films. I find the storylines interesting, but the actual movies themselves, if I have to watch them, I will have my laptop in front of me so I can do something else when jumpy bits come up :P
I got in a bad mood with my girlfriend for ages when she got me to watch Pulse. -_- Bitch.
I'm gonna tap him like a maple tree. I'm gonna search him for some syrups. I'm gonna be having sex with him.
I'm a bit surprised that no-one's mentioned Psycho - but perhaps that dates me. I must admit to having found it pretty frightening in its day. Whereas the other supposedly scary Hitchcock film of that era, The Birds, did nothing for me as, knowing real bird life pretty well, I found it totally unrealistic.
I love Hitchcock's films, Psycho is a favourite film of mine. I love how Norman Bates was just your "average" sort of person, but he had his dead Mother decomposing in his cellar, and he'd take on her persona, pretty creepy.
I think though that originally newly released horror films were asked for, so anything that wasn't released in the last year or so wouldn't be applicable. Personally, I love older horror films and new releases, sometimes it's just fun to be scared :p
