    I wouldn't put any of those horror films in my top 100, maybe not even 300.

    Same for action.

    This is an overall horrible selection of movies to choose from.

    The best movie is The Godfather Part 1, personally. As for horror movies, I'm not expert but those are pretty bleak. I'd put some movies like The Shining or Dawn of the Dead past those.

    No.

    I thought Paranormal Activity was pretty damn scary and you can't go wrong with Indiana Jones or Star wars

    Yea, those movies are a small selection that i wouldn't put any of em at the top of my list.

    Hell, for Star Wars, grouping 1-3 in with 4-6 is just horrible. That's like putting up a battle of the fictional super groups and making an option "Led Zeppelin & Jonas Brothers" [​IMG]

    As for scary movies... i can't pull out "the scariest ever," because... i've never been scared by a movie. :-\ I suppose as a general consensus, The Exorcist could probably hit number 1.
    However, The Decent would be close to the top just for the feeling of claustrophobia alone (very well done, imo).
    (heh, the only 'scary' movie to ever REALLY effect me was Audition. And that was just because Miike is fucking amazing using sound effects.)

    I shall see your "Godfather Part 1" and raise you one "Shawshank Redemption." [​IMG]

    Lies.

    Never actually saw Shawshank Redemption. I feel like I'm missing out. But The Godfather was amazing, you can't deny it.

    Ok, you caught me. The time i was scared by a movie was when i was about 4 or 5 years old and the tremor that destroyed Krypton at the beginning of Superman 1 had me in tears. And after that, thanks to my parents, i've always had the "it's only a movie" thing go through my head any time a movie could have done anything to me (and the thought of it being a camera crew), and as i've gotten older, i've had less fear about things found in movies.

    And go watch Sawshank NOW. Or as soon as you can. You'll understand after watching it. Stunning film.
