Sinister. I was literally screaming.
When I was a child I saw The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T on television. It gave me my first sense of the horrors of infinity. It is supposed to be a technicolor farce melding Dr. Seuss with live-action, but it induced in me a dread of wrong geometry, as you find in Lovecraft.
There's something to be said about the difference between scary movies, and upsetting ones.
“Why is it that we rejoice at a birth and grieve at a funeral? It is because we are not the person involved.” ~ Mark Twain
The Exorcist - i stupidly sat there and watched the entire film but i did not want to ruin things for the person i was with. Little did i know that the film was a key to his personality.
The Shinning - shame on Stanley Kubrick.

Oh, here we go! I had completely forgot about Jacob's Ladder.
Ones that surprised me most recently:
^ Shit, Insidious is the one I meant. I haven't even seen Sinister.
Strangers is waaaaaay too slow for me. I tried sitting through it, but it couldn't capture me at all.
I don't find horror movies all that scary anymore. The only time I've had nightmares/couldn't sleep because of a movie was when I was 10yrs old and my parents were watching some werewolf movie/show. All I remember was when they transformed they took their upper and lower jaws and pulled apart their faces and the werewolf came out that way. It wasn't drawn out, one moment they're fine the next < rip > they're werewolfs. It still freaks me out a bit today, but I guess thats what you get when you peek through your fingers when your parents tell you to cover your eyes.
You're just ugly enough to be wise.
I find horror movies pretty cheezy most of the time. I do have a catergory of movies reserved in the freaky/disturbing catergory.
human centepede II final sequence- I couldnt finish this one, the main character made me sick to my stomach.
A serbian film- ...yeeah... not for family viewing.
Blair witch project- The idea and execution was well done. the first of it's kind.
Hostel I&II- they're pretty bad movies.
