    Obviously as an adult less and less with scare you as you know it's only a movie but when was the last time you got a scare watching a movie.

    For me, there are two moments;


    The Ring
    When the girl comes out the TV. ****!!!!


    6th Sense
    The the girl runs past the screen when the boy is going to the toilet.

    Halloween 2. Because it was so freaking awful, I thought I was gonna lose my mind by the end of that crapfest.


    Woman in black didn't scare me, but those freaking dolls were creepy.

    Sixth Sense.

    And please do NOT laugh at me -- Dreamcatchers -- every time I go to the toilet I literally have to check inside to make sure there's nothing in it. That film traumatized me haha.

    King did to toilets what Hitchcock did to showers for some people.

    It has been a really, REALLY long time since I've seen a movie that I found legitimately scary. Most of them are so predictably formulaic they're just boring. Others had the potential to be truly frightening, but gave everything away in the trailers.

    I have seen a few movies that had a few good jump scares, but that's about all I can say for them. Paranormal Activity 3 had some creepy moments. Like when the dust landed on the invisible spirit that was right in front of the camera, then it disappeared. Or when the little girl bumped into the invisible spirit, which then grabbed her by the hair and lifted her off the floor. Or when the spirit was creeping up behind the babysitter wearing a sheet, then disappeared right before she turned around. Those were all some really cool images. Unfortunately the movie lost something for me with the mother-in-law being part of a coven of witches who wanted to use the girls in some ritual.

    I haven't found a movie scary since I become an adult. I sort of miss it.

    Don't get me wrong, jump scares make me jump, like anyone else, but movies just don't scare me in any meaningful way.

    The original Paranormal Activity. I just let myself get immersed in the theater, and I managed to legitimately jump several times.

    As a kid, I remember watching this terrible movie called 'Alien Abduction: The McPherson Tapes' and that was the scariest thing I'd ever seen.

    Totally freaked me out for a few months and even now, I've tried to watch clips on YouTube and I can't. I guess it's still stuck in my head from years ago. Lol.

    Silent Hill...I was terrified that I rooted for Alessa at the end (or whoever the burnt, hospital bed-bound child with the barbed wire was). You burn a child from a single mother alive...pity not even once. The Janitor's backstory was horrifying, too.

    The Blair Witch Project remains the only film I've ever seen that scared the hell out of me. I had to sleep with the lights on for a week after watching that. Greatest horror film of the 90's,imo.

    There was some nice creepy imagery in that movie. Especially after the girl finds that guy's tongue wrapped in a bundle of sticks. I just didn't list that as it wasn't the LAST movie to scare me.

    That's one of my favorite movie moments of the last decade.

    Mama, for sure. Especially when the doctor is in her cabin looking for her. I also loved her twisted design, and the fact they used a baby crying backwards for the sounds she made. Really helped to give the sound a chillingly familiar but unnatural sound.

    Jump scares get everyone because it's in our nature to be startled. It's not the same thing as lingering fear though. Which is what a good horror film should go for.

    But yeah, that doesn't really happen to me as an adult either. But Paranormal Activity was creepy in the theater.

    Maybe the first Gremlins film back when I was 7 years old
    I don't count getting angry, startled, or disgusted as scared, which is the effect of those horror movies
