Last Halloween, I went on a quest to find THE SCARIEST MOVIE EVER. I did a little research & solicited recommendations, and when multiple people suggested The Strangers, I jumped on it, cause Liv Tyler is my very favorite actress, and I've had a longstanding crush on Scott Speedman (since his Felicity days, duh).
But it didn't quite do the trick. I uttered nary a shriek, and I slept just fine that night.
So here's where you come in: I need your best suggestions at bone-chilling movies that will make me terrified to peer under my bed. I'm talkin' face-buried-in-the-pillow, panic-inducing movies that will make me feel like it's actually Halloween.
Here are some criteria based on what does & doesn't scare me:
★ No zombies, werewolves, vampires, or aliens (has to be something that could feasibly happen to me)
★ Needs to be somewhat psychological
★ The chances of terrifying me are greater if the movie isn't too old.
★ I remember being scared by Cape Fear (original one? remake? can't remember). But that kind of thing is what will do it for me, I think. Silence of the Lambs was pretty spooky, too. Serial killers are the best bet.
Okay, give me your best suggestions! Happy (almost) Halloween :)
