As an adult, what is your biggest fear? You could of had this fear as a child and you grew up with it. Or it just sort of came out of nowhere. I am 21 years old, and I'm horrified of the dark. I have my reasons. The main one being: growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandmas house. She would pretty much force me and my sisters to watch scary movies. I was 4-5 years old at the time. And still to this day, the dark is just something I can't handle.

After hearing about the failures of die hard 5, scary movie 5, paranormal activity 4, star wars the phantom menace e.t.c. Are there any good series that are still good after such repetition in additions to their franchise?

As the youngest of 5, I often saw scary movies ate ages I probably shouldn't have. Zelda from Pet Sematary is by far the most terrifying movie experience as a child, and haunts me to this day! What are yours?

Hey, as per the suggestions from last weeks thread, I've added this weeks releases for iTunes, Netflix and Redbox in addition to what's coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD. Please let me know if you have any ideas for how to improve these new weekly threads we'll be doing.

I have never walked out of a movie before I went to see Scary Movie 5 with a bunch of friends.. The whole audience was hysterically laughing for the first thirty minutes we were in there which made no sense to me.
If you liked the first couple of Scary movies do not go to see this one. The amount of repetitiveness of seeing middle school aged children getting hurt is cringeworthy. Not to mention the multiple scenes of a baby getting hurt.

Throw some big names into a movie and it doesn't matter what happens, right? Far too many producers think like this. And if you haven't judged yet by my phrasing, it is a terrible way to make movies. Especially when many of the "big names" are big for controversial reasons, looking at you Charlie.
Anyway, if you somehow have never heard of "Scary Movie," it is a parody film series, primarily poking fun at, well, scary movies. The story is never great, usually filled with poop jokes, penis jokes, and everything else the teenagers love. So, if you're above the age of 16, you probably don't like the movies.
The first four installments featured Cindy Campbell ,played by Anna Faris, as the main character. Having a lead character kept the series somewhat enjoyable, so now we find problem number 1 of this film: Anna Faris is nowhere to be found. Now we have Jody, played by Ashley Tisdale, as the main character. The first ten minutes of seeing Tisdale on screen I was trying to figure out where I had last seen her. It was the Suite Life of Zach and Cody. A huge difference. But good for her for trying to get new roles! Now her next goal should be to find a good role. Most other characters in the film were rappers, or actors with a past.
Some moments in this film were funny, I'll give it that. But it definitely not worth the price of admission. It's like they didn't even try. Maybe we can put a stop to these terrible parody films, but I doubt that will happen any time soon. With the absence of any past character returning, a complete neglect of plot structure, then not even being funny, I have to say this film isn't worth watching.

The scary movie films were obviously never shining examples of cinema at its finest, but scary movie 5 seems like it takes the series to very new lows. Who approves of a film this bad to be made?

I think its amazing that the current TV spots for Scary Movie 5 are showing scenes parodying "Evil Dead" and "Mama" two films that are barely 3 months old. (Evil Dead just coming out last week). How does a film like "Scary Movie" write, shoot, and edit a scene like that in time for a wide release just a 7 days away? Is it just that cheap and easy?
"Scream" came out in 1996 and "Scary Movie 1" came out in 2000. From 4 years to 4 months, is current cinema so short minded that it makes fun of itself immediately after its invention? I know this is a recurring discussion on Reddit and how everything is a remake of a remake. Its just crazy how fast its being remade or parodied.

Sure there were plenty of movies that freaked me the fuck out when I was younger (Tommyknockers, Fire In The Sky), but as an adult, I've been pretty unaffected.
I'd say the closest I've gotten to scared after watching a movie would have to be the night after seeing paranormal activity and sleeping over at my girlfriends extremely creaky house.
How 'bout you, Reddit?

A girl I recently started dating LOVES horror movies. Problem is there's not much she hasn't seen or stuff that scares her. She doesn't think I can find a truly scary movie she hasn't seen.
So, I'm employing your help to come up with something.
A few things:
) No pre-2000, or maybe pre-1995 movies. Yeah, they're classics and all, but they're simply not scary by today's standards. They're more laughable now than scary.
2) Gore is fine, but not JUST gore. I want SCARY/HORROR too.
3) No corny acting or effects or crappy plot that is going to make the movie seem stupid. I want a solid scary/horror flick.
4) Oh, and preferably one in english... not subtitled.
5) She's seen a lot of scary movies. So if you're going to throw out something like Paranormal Activity, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Ring, etc... I'm sure she's already seen it.
EDIT Ok, lets include foreign/subtitled movies...
EDIT2 Downloading Martyrs, Noroi: The Curse, and The Audition. Hopefully one of these does the job! Thanks for all the responses!
