Scary movies that are actually scary?

What are some scary movies that are actually scary?

Movies like Saw and Halloween don't scare me but movies like Funny Games (US) and The Strangers scare me half to death.

    i cant remember the year of some of them on the list but majority are recent films that i did like. only one was from the 90's which is misery. i highlighted with *** the movies that belong to my favorite list which i've seen over and over again.

    It all depends on what you concider scary. I 2 love scary movies and have a hard time finding films that acttually scare me. One seggestion i have for you is to get with your friends (movies are always scary when wathcing with a group of friends at night, dont noe why but true) so get ur firends go to ur local movie rental store and pick random movies from the horror section. I cant garantee that you will be scared. But it will be fun, me and my friend found laugh are heads off. But you want to be scared so I would suggest checking out (I havent seen some of these but they have scared the crap out of the people i asked) Dead Silence (i didnt get a chance to see this but i heard it was really scary) The Exerocist The Ring Oldboy Cabin Fever Saw (not really scary but a good thriller same with the Saw 2 good thriller) Black Christmas Night of the Living Dead (the one from the 70's) i know there are more but i cant think of any more. Good luck!

    I think it depends on what the person is afraid of in order for the movie to be scary to them. The first movie that really scared me was the Exorcist. I don't like that kind of stuff, ghosts, possessed people, aliens etc... but movies that could really mimic life like The Strangers, Halloween, etc... don't bother me at all.

    Also, the Ring freaked me out, because that little kid was freaky.
