What's the scariest movie of all time?

Which movie just really gives you the heebie jeebies? I've seen Ringu/The Ring hundreds of times but it always stays with me for a couple of days after I watch it. I remember the first time I watched it when it was first released and got to the part where Samara crawls out of the TV. I'd never felt that like while watching a movie before. When I watched Ringu, it was the part where the newscast is on TV and starts stuttering and pauses with the news anchor's face all distorted. They don't scare me in that way anymore, but I still prefer to watch them with the lights on.

Some runners up would be Jeepers Creepers, The Last Broadcast (the original Blair Witch Project. I highly recommend it if you've never heard of /seen it), House of 1000 Corpses and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I grew up Catholic so The Exorcist freaks me out. I think it was you who suggested watching Dumplings as a good example of Asian horror and yes, it was creepy!

The old monsters are still the scariest, probably because I saw them as a young lad. Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers are the stuff of nightmares.

I'm a big baby when it comes to horror flicks. They all freak me out for ages afterwards. It's pathetic really. I only see them accidentally. Someone else will be watching the film and I just can't look away. I get trapped in it. Sometimes I wind up at the cinema to see a horror flick with a friend who didn't want to go alone.

@Chuckyy I tried watching the The Blair Witch Project but the shaky camera made me a bit sick to my stomach so I had to stop. I didn't expect Jeepers Creepers to be that scary but it absolutely was! I didn't like the second film though.

Yes, Ringu was super creepy, and I thought The Ring was a decent remake. Another freaky one was The Shining, thanks to those twin girls.

I don't think horror movies are that scary but I had nightmares after watching Paranormal Activity. That ghost stuff is creepy. I don't know if I believe in ghosts but for some reason after watching that movie I thought some ghost is going to pull the blankets off of me and drag me off my bed.

It has been a while since I watched a horror movie but who didn't get scared after watching Wrong Turn sequel? The scariest for me was Saw.

I completely forgot about Wrong Turn! Man, that movie gave me the serious creeps the first time I watched it. Unfortunately, the sequels majorly sucked, but I find that's usually the case. @Gareth The Great I'm happy you enjoyed the movie and experienced how unsettling and creepy Asian horror can be.

The ones that have stuck with me have been based off of true stories. There are some sick people out there. It creeps out to think I likely encounter people who are capable of the same sadistic violence.
