Watching some show right now on Bravo: The 100 scariest movies. I came in in the middle of it.
The films listed so far:
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
They have all these people commenting on why certain films are so frightening – film critics, directors … it’s awesome. I’ll let you know what # 1 is. Please discuss in the comments, if you feel so inclined.
Scariest movie ever?? Discuss.
Rosemary’s Baby needs to be on the list.
Next film on the list: Alien. (One commentator: “Any film that claustrophic has got to be terrifying. A nightmare.” Another one: “You never saw that creature until the end.” Ron Perlman said, in regards to the scene when the alient bursts out of John Hurt’s stomach: “That scared me. Yeah, I had to change my underwear.”)
Update: THIS JUST IN. The #1 scariest movie (according to this show) is Jaws. (Some film director said: “I remember after I saw that movie in the theatre, I went out to Denny’s for something to eat, and I felt – in Denny’s – that I was going to be attacked by a shark at any minute.” Rob Reiner said: “The opening of that film cuts right to the chase and taps into a fear that every human being has.”)
