Creeped me out in a good way:

The Shining
Eyes Wide Shut (especially the masked ball scene!)
Saw
The Hidden Fortress (Kurosawa)
Blue Velvet
Eraserhead
The Elephant Man
Pink Flamingos
Silence of the Lambs
The Blair Witch Project
Dracula (original 1931 w/ Bela Lugosi)
Fargo
Rosemary's Baby (Polanski!)
The Tenant (Polanski again!)
Repulsion (Another Polanski!)
The Last House on the Left

Creeped me out in a bad way:
The Last Exit to Brooklyn (the gang rape scene)
Wild At Heart (Blue Velvet worked because it was good versus evil, WAH was evil versus evil, that bugged me.)
Traffic (the movie is terrific, I just can't watch the teenage crackhead doing the evil drug dealer.  Too much.)
A Room With A View (E.M. Forster, James Ivory--too much cotton candy will make anybody sick!)
For the Love of Benji (the vivisection sequence)

Jeepers Creepers (I didn't like the fact that he used that guy's belly button skin...eww).
Wrong Turn (eww...imbreds on the loose)
Seven (The ending totally freaked me out)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (totally crazy whenever he cut off that guys face and used it as a mask)
Saw (wow...strange...and the ending was a total surprise)
Jaws (when I was really young, but to this day..I don't like sharks)
E.T. ( I also didn't like that movie, especially when he and Elliot were all pale and sick).
Gremlins (freaked me out as a child)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, at least the scene where the Mid East guy pulls the heart out of a man while said man is still alive, then burns it with his psychic powers.

Almost every scene in "Hannibal"

The scene in "Forbidden World" where the octo-creature skewers the Brit blonde female from her...ahem naughty bit.  :-[

And any scene with features creatures born from a human woman's womb. (Humanoids From The Deep, The Fly, V, etc.)

Seriously though, I've been semi scared of several movies -- usually not the entire thing, but rather certain scenes. If I had to pick just one overall, probably American History X - just because that kind of thing COULD easily be true stories, or fragments of them. Far scarier than any made up monster IMHO.

EDIT--Off the top of my head, movies that have scared me:

Arachnophobia
Scream 1 and 2
Carrie (esp the 2002 TV remake)
The Exorcist
Ernest Scared Stupid (just a few isolated parts)

That's one of my favourite EVER! Movies, for that particular reason, because it's so dark and violent. Plus Edward Norton is one of my favourite Actors. It's a great film because it could be (and is with different people) true.

Definitely. I watched it for an English class assignment in 2002 I think - no matter how frightening it got in places, it was impossible NOT to watch it. Really eye-opening on tons of levels.

I like Edward Norton too - though this was quite a change of pace from his role in Detriot Rock City!

It was called "Scarecrows", one of the best horror films ever. If it's the one I'm thinking of, some AWOL ex-Marines who've stolen a military payroll skydive into a vast cornfield and the scarecrows kill them off, one by one. Really, really atmospheric and creepy film.

"Saw" was great, and I agree about "Primal Fear". One of my favourite films.

Also: "Suspiria"

How could I forget The Exorcist?  Definitely waaaay creepy.  Loved it!  The original, mind you, none of that sequel rubbish.  Amityville Horror failed to creep me out for three reasons:
1. The entire story was bogus.
2. As a fictional account, it had none of the suspense and psychological horror required to be truly creepy, IMO.
3. James Brolin is a cheeeeesy actor!

Oh, here are a couple of other creepy movies:

El Topo (Alajandro Jodorowsky, say no more!)
Ghost Story (Fred Astaire's last picture, you should see it if you can find it.)

When I was a kid:

The Gremlins- I was absolutely frightened of the first movie. One time at the cinemas I cried my eyes out after seeing a cardboard display of Gizmo's head popping in and out of a drawer and a Gremlin's hand poking out from a chair, holding a cigar. But I love them now.

E.T.- That part when Elliot is in the tall grass, inspecting whatever's out there and he sees E.T. and E.T. makes that weird screeching noise, with his chest all lit up...still kinda freaks me out. They ruined it in the updated version...wasn't scary at all.

War Games- That movie with a young Matthew Broderick as the main character. Don't know what was scary about it, but I got my first nightmares after seeing it, so I just connected the nightmares with the movie.

Now, two films that didn't so much creep me out, but really upset me were..

Johnny Got His Gun ~ I watched it because of the Video for Metallica's 'One'.. that was a horrific film.

Beyond the Mat ~ It basically ruined any images i had of my hero's. I see them in a different light now, not as Icons and Legends, but as normal men, going the extra mile. In some ways, it's almost a better way to see them.. in other way's.. I wish i had kept the innocence.

I thougth it was LAME how they deleted the famous "penis breath" line in the updated version.  Anyway, it's not like I was gonna watch the updated version anyway.

The first "Halloween" movie creeped me out for reasns fairly obvious to anyone who has seen it.    Wes Craven's voodoo movie "The Serpent and the Rainbow" was really creepy.  I haven't seen it came out, so I don't remember exactly what it was.

Pink Floyd's "The Wall" has some pretty disturbing animation sequences, whether you're watching it inebriated or sober.

The snakes scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" gave me the willies because I'm such an ophidiophobe!
Why does the floor move?
Asps! Very dangerous, you go first.

I saw the movies The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Liquid Sky at too early an age.  Both creeped me out.  When I saw Liquid Sky later on, I thought it was cool, though a little on the cheesy side.  Later when I saw "Rocky Horror" in college it creeped me out again, this time because I realized the movie was merely assanine and puerile, and the fans were a bunch of dorks.

Another flick wasn't ready for at the age of fourteen was Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.  Mr. Creosote's projectile vomiting and explosion was a big gross out, but "Live Organ Transplants" was downright horrifying (but too funny at the same time!)  The sex ed. scene was too much for me.  John Cleese plays the schoolmaster.  He starts off asking really graphic questions to the class, and then Patricia Quinn (playing his wife) comes in and they have sex in front of the entire class...all of whom are bored and not paying attention (that's the joke basically).  The scene got me, um, aroused, because Quinn was hot in a MILF kind of way.  But the fact that John Cleese was riding her....

"The Day After" was scarier in 1983 when nuclear war with the USSR was a possibility.  The creepiest aspects of that movie for me were the ones depicting post-holocaust social breakdown.  For example, the despondency, the fighting for rations and water, and especially at the end when Jason Robards' character finds the ruins of his house.  He starts screaming at the people camping there to GET OUT!  Then the man offers him a morsel of food, and Robards breaks down and ends with his head against the man's chest and sobbing.  There the film ends.
They warned us in school the movie could be very "traumatic."  It was quite controversial.  However, I thought the film didn't depict the devastation well enough!  The film's epilogue says the same thing, the aftermath of a real nuclear war would be WORSE!

A much more realistic and terrifying film on the same subject came out about the same time in Britain.  It was called "Threads."  I highly recommend it.  It WILL freak you out!

Speaking of films that creeped me out in a bad way, "The Ice Storm", especially the scenes with Christina Ricci in it. The Nixon mask, sleeping with a 13-yead old boy. I won't give away the endng, but I will say Sigourney Weaver would win Mother of the Year in this film.

The director's cut of "The Butterfly Effect", which the ending is quite different from the theatrical version.Both versions are available on DVD. All I can say about the director's cut is that Ashton Kutcher's character "doesn't even exist".Creepy.

And "Freeway", that "Little Red Riding Hood" film with Reese Witherspoon and Keifer Sutherland. Chockful of sex, violence and all out meanness.

Creeped me out in a bad way:
The Last Exit to Brooklyn (the gang rape scene)
Wild At Heart (Blue Velvet worked because it was good versus evil, WAH was evil versus evil, that bugged me.)

Arachnophobia gives me the creepy crawlies whenever the spiders are crawling all over someone :(
What is in that movie, the stuff about tarantulas, is largely UNTRUE.

Tarantulas are SOLITARY creatures,they live and hunt alone rather than in groups.

Most tarantulas' venom is non-lethal to humans,the notable exception being the funnelweb spiders from Australia.

And yes there are people who actually like them,and keep them as pets.

We watched that one night when our parents were out(otherwise they wouldn't have let us) they came home way after we went to bed. They brought a black cat home with them, I was the first to get up the next morning, walking up the stairs and a cat jumps at me-everyone else was woken up pretty quick. ;D

Now that you mention it, "Night of the Living Dead" the 1990 version, scared me when I saw it on TV a few years back. I'd never seen it before, and I was already 17 or 18 but it didn't matter - still kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a good movie, though -- that made me NEVER want to live in the countryside! ;D

BTW, a little unrelated, but was the original 1968 version scarier than that remake?

Yeah, good point. To be honest, I find the "quiet" parts in horror movies scarier than the blood & guts itself - I think it's the mystery of not knowing what'll happen.

Oh, I forgot to say before, but the thing that creeped me out way more than anything else was the Alice in Wonderland video for Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here". :D

I taped it off a VH1 countdown special a few years back - I've now lost my place in the tape and forget what number it is. I'm almost afraid to look for it since I don't want it to "surprise" me, LOL!

Looking at the "Exorcist" images, i remember somewhat a rumor about a projector malfunction in a DC theater that resulted in a frame to freeze of Ragan/Satan during the head-turning scene, causing mass hysteria (and even one death) among the moviegoers. If this is true, then this film goes to the top among the creepiest films. A word of caution: the first 15 minutes, where Father Merrin participates in a archeological dig in the Middle East has got to be the most boring scenes in a horror film ever. ::)

One of my all-time favorites.  "The Shining" is one of those rare horror movies that gets scarier every time you watch it.  At least, that's what I've found. 
Incidentally, the East Side Digital label has released Wendy Carlos's incidental music for "The Shining" on a couple of different CDs.  Disc One includes the music behind the single eeriest incident, Jack's encounter with the lady in the bath.  It's entitled "Heartbeats and Worry" on the CD.

Definitely does. I'm not sure why, but I think one thing that makes the Shining scary is that it veers back and forth so much, so you never know what to expect from Nicholson. One minute you think he's a nice guy who just has a bit of a temper, in the next minute he's pure evil.

The rural location of the motel also added to its scariness IMO.

SPOILERS:

I could swear there's two different endings to this - the "sadder" one is usually shown on TV though it seems - where Jack burns down the hotel with himself in it in order to rid it of the "evil". They later flash in on Danny grown up and about to graduate high school - his dad is there in spirit to congradulate him. That was a nice ending to an otherwise depressing movie.

However, I'm sure I once saw another slightly different ending where Dick succesfully manages to get Danny and his mom out safely. I forget what happens after that.

That was the remake.  It follows the book more closely than the original.  It was made for TV a couple of years ago.  The hotel blew up because of the boiler not being properly taken care of.  If I remember right, Stephen King wrote the screenplay for the remake.  He wasn't happy with the artistic license taken in the original.  Steven Webber and Rebecca DeMornay played Jack and Wendy, if I remember right.

I will avoid that TV version.  Sounds like BS even if SK wrote it.
There was an ending sequence cut from the original in which Wendy is recovering in the hospital, and Danny is out in the waiting room bouncing a ball...the SAME ball that rolls out at him from Room 237.  A nurse walks by who appears to be the same woman as the dead old lady in the bath!

I never watched them.  They were trendy when I was in high school.  No surprise they were faked.  It wasn't so easy back then to get grisly footage.

The internet is now rife with videos of people getting killed.  A lot of them are indeed real.  I watched a bunch of them out of curiosity.  They didn't disturb me as much as I thought they would.  The fact is our day to day lives are a membrane of pleasantness surrounded by death, savagery, and so horrible we don't even want to think of them...but they're out there.  Who knows what kind of carnage may be happening only a few miles from where you sit!  Muahahahaha!  Seriously, though, I didn't find videos of shop clerks getting gunned down or hostages behing decapitated pleasant, but I could deal with the reality that such horror goes on all the time, we just don't witness it.  But the fact that we don't witness it doesn't make it any less real.  See?

I've never seen snuff films of the sexual variety, but my morbid curiosity diid lead me to unmentionable sexual barbarism I've witnessed on the 'net.
:o
The one series of pics I was hoping was fake was a couple naked and frolicking in the basement of a run-down house as they dismembered the body of a man and did unspeakable things with his severed bits.
A little researched turned up the chilling fact that these photos were evidence from a real crime.  It happened in Detroit in 1982.  A druggie biker chick and another druggie biker dude killed the chick's boyfriend for revenge.  They then spent a few days going crazy on PCP and amphetamines as they pursued an orgy of sex and carnage worthy of Caligula!  Being the smart criminals they were, they took pictures.  I don't know who got their hands on the pics to post them on the 'net, though.
They got caught and put in jail.  That was over 20 years ago and they're out of prison now!

Ah ok. Well that would explain it. I can understand King being upset with Kubrick's version, especially the part where he never bothers to explain exactly what "The Shining" is, but come on. It was Kubrick, the master of auteur. Plus, it was better than any version King himself could have made.

In the same way "Boys Don't Cry" creeped me out...
On a scarier side of things "Silence of the Lambs"

Both left me with a weird feeling....... :o

You never know which Tony Stewart will appear: the mean scowling hot-head of old or the new Tony Stewart. Just give it time when he's losing again and he'll show his true colors. 8)
Why? He's not all that bad....

I still like Tony Stewart. There were a few other aggressive, un-PC drivers in NASCAR...Cale Yarbourough...the Allisons...even Crusty Rusty has been in a few scrapes. But all some people seem to remember is Tony Stewart...and Kurt Busch...both who have mellowed out somewhat.

Since we're talking about creepy movies, has anyone seen "Silent Hill" the movie? Is it just another bad translation of a video game, or did it do somewhat well? For a time it was the #1 movie in the US but then suddenly disappeared.

WINTER SOLDIER

This bad boy was banned by the U.S. government for over thirty years. It did win a Cannes film festival award in 1972, but the U.S. government did not and still does not want you to see it.

John Kerry is in it briefly, and of course, certain powerful people whipped up a conspiracy theory about the commies being behind the whole thing, but I would leave that for a Politics board thread.

The film is a documentary made in 1971 of Vietnam veterans testifying about war atrocities. There are a few horrifying still photos from the war to illustrate some vets' accounts of what they experienced, however, most of the film is just a stark black-and-white documentary of vets telling their side of the story.

Forget about "Saving Private Ryan," "Platoon," "Full Metal Jacket," or any of that Hollywood drama. "Winter Soldier" conveys the horror of war much better, and uses only words!

Rosemary's Baby

(caution: spoiler)

What makes this one reeeeaaallly creepy is not the occult plot, but the core theme throughout the film: betrayal. It is one of the most horrible experiences to be betrayed by people you love and people you trust.

That friendly couple of old eccentrics next door? They lead a coven of satanic witches. Your loving husband sells your child to the witches at the moment of its conception so they may bring forth the anti-christ. And for what? He does it to further his acting career! Dr. Sapirstein, the eminent obstetrician and such a nice man, he's a witch too! It's just one betrayal of Rosemary after another. Even Dr. Hill, the other obstetrician, inadvertantly betrays Rosemary because her story sounds to whacky to believe. She claims Hill's eminent colleague, Abraham Sapirstein is a witch! Just when Rosemary thinks she is out of danger, and reclining in Dr. Hill's examining room, it turns out Dr. Hill has phoned Dr. Sapirstein, and was like, "what's going on with this lady?" Saperstein, of course,  runs a line on Hill that Rosemary is nutso. Next scene you see her husband, the witch neighbors, and Sapirstein (carrying a syringe full of sedative) stroll right through the curtain...
To me, that was always the creepiest moment in the film!
