I saw The Shining when it came to theaters when I was teen and really didn't think it was that scary. Just my opinion, I really didn't care much for the movie at all.

Now the Exorcist! To me, that should be #1! At least it made #2. =) Just the thought of demonic spirits getting into a little girl is very frightening to me.

There are a few on that list I never seen.

Thanks for sharing Rod! =)

A lot of good ones listed, I'll throw in "Frailty", that one was just disturbing.

It's hard to list any recent ones, because they rely too much on gore. Too me, it's more scary to imagine the scares (Blair Witch) than to actually see all that gore (Saw).

One of my very favorite movies isn't on there either, although it isn't really too well known... "The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane" with Jodie Foster and Martin Sheen. Such a good movie. And what about Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"? That too, is an awesome flick.

I think the list should also have: IT, Final Destination 2, Return of the Living Dead and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. I agree that it is missing Friday the 13th; how could they have left that off? Granted, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes isn't scary, but it IS hilarious.

Besides FD2 and RoftLD, scary movies don't usually bother me. I love "Halloween" and just watched it again last night, but I think it is more disturbing than scary, same goes for the SAW movies and The Shining.

Some of the ones on the list I haven't seen, or didn't like much, but I do like these:
THE SHINING (1980)
HALLOWEEN (1978)
PSYCHO (1960)
POLTERGEIST (1982)
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)
THE OMEN (1976)

At the time it came out The Exorcist really scared me and I thought the movie was very well made including the the theme from Oldfield and the performances by all the lead actors.

I agree! I do not like movies with a lot of gore. The slasher flicks are not for me.

It's an ok list... I agree Blair Witch should be on there. I also think Paranormal Activity even though it's relatively new...

I heard so much about this movie over the years and finally saw it on tv a few weeks ago and thought it was rubbish. Not scary at all and really a terrible film

I remember when The Exorcist came out in the 70s, the commercials gave me nightmares! It wasn't until just a few years ago that I finally could get myself to watch it. To me that is the scariest movie of all time.
