    Aliens
    They are the worst. Nothing else has that combination of intelligence and lethality. I would die of a heart attack if I came accross one!

    I'd have to go with the Poop Monster in Dogma.

    That's scary!

    The Predators are more intelligent and lethal than the Aliens. They also share some traits with us, making them even more terrifying. Can you say trophy-hunting? [​IMG]

    The ghosts in Robert Wise's original and unapproachable The Haunting (1963). You never see them, but you know they're there--and that's scary.

    That nasty pea soup spewing demon Pazoozoo from 'The Exorcist' still raises the hair on my ass!
    Also, I would have to say Michael Myers. I had a genuin nightmare that he was coming after me, he was stripped of all that Hollywood stuff, and was just plain terrifying! I'm not kidding, in the dream he was after me trying to kill me, and wherever I turned, he was their. I can appreciate what Jamie Lee Curtis's charactor was feeling in those films now let me tell ya.

    There certainly are many to choose from. One that I would not like to meet face to face is the Gheco/insectoid from The Relic

    I have to add that the book was a whole lot scarier than the movie was. One hing I do like in the film is that much of it takes place in darkness and when they use their flashlights, all we can see are the illuminated areas with everything else in utter darkness. Adds to the scare factor especially since we know the thing is somewhere in there with them, plus they are chest deep in water.
    Another scary beast is the shark from Jaws. The fear is very real, not some hollywood creation.

    The Cenobites from Hellraiser. The problem here is that their goal is not to kill you, but to push you into levels of torture so extreme that you redefine what pleasure is to compensate. And they do this for eternity. Plus, I have a thing for rusty metal and open wounds (shudder).

    I would have to say that Jaws has had the biggest impact on me. I've never been able to go out into a large body of water since I've seen that movie.

    Leatherface (from the ORIGINAL Texas Chainsaw Massacre) gave me a few nightmares back in the day.
    The Aliens are quite fearsome as well.
    When I was a kid, I was horrified by The Blob! (Again, the original blob.)

    I'll go with Scott on the Blob. First time I saw the original on TV was when I was a kid, alone at home in the country, on a windy night.... I still have a vivid recall of the first night I saw that when I see it on TV now and again.

    I'll go with Aliens too, if the alien doesn't kill you, it cocoons you and than an alien facehugger leaps onto your face, sticks its alien thingy down your throat and the next thing you know you're pregnant, a few days later your chest bursts open giving birth to the little alien f**ker, brrrrrr...

    In all seriousness, though...no movie has ever creeped me out as much as The Exorcist. I have a really hard time watching it alone. This is a testament to the greatness of the film...it's so well done that it's almost believable. It could happen to you.

    The Exorcist also freaks me out way to much. The shit demon also made me cringe in fear at the lethal and potent powers that he posseses.

    The shark in Jaws had the biggest impact on me, probably because I saw it at a younger age.

    Evil Dead scared the crap out of me as a kid.

    The make-up on the zombies was very low quality, but that girl locked in the basement gave me the creeps!! (Thank god my name wasnt ASH!!! I'd still be having nightmeres!)
