I'm always on the lookout for a genuinely scary film. Here are some of my favorites. Tell me what your favorites are.
The Descent (2006) - in my top 10 films overall, probably the scariest movie I've ever seen
28 Days Later (2002) - I love this movie and watch it a lot.
May (2003) - creepy and original
Cabin Fever (2003)
Paranormal Activity (2007) - a lot better than I would have thought. I HATED Blair Witch
From Hell (2001) - I have a fascination with Jack the Ripper, sue me
The Last House on the Left (2009) - no critical acclaim, but I thought it was really good
The Devil's Rejects (2005)
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
The Ruins (2008) - underrated
28 Weeks Later
Trick 'r Treat (2008)
Wrong Turn (2003)
Drag Me To Hell (2009)
Saw (2004) - the acting really grates on my nerves on repeat viewings
"The Descent" is a truly GREAT horror film. I'd have to add "Dog Soldiers", although it's part action/horror, just like the one film that inspired it - "Aliens".
As for the Saw and Hostel drivel - I am just not into torture porn, so, no.
