Ace Ventura - When Nature Calls

When he's up in the mountains and drops the raccoon that he's trying to save. Boy that was scary.

Seriously, though... I thought Poltergeist was pretty scary (especially the pool scene) and The Birds was kinda creepy/disturbing. Jaws... yes, definitely.

I'd like to add "Alien" to the list.

I didn't bother with "2" because I thought Jeepers Creepers was a waste of my time. It was aw'ight and had some tense action but I didn't like the ending at all.

I can't think of any book I've read.. by anyone where the movie is as good. Books are better because you can "cast " the characters and "see" the sets the way that you want them. Plus there's always so much more detail.

Like the Stephen King movie "IT" that was funny, not scary. Except, my oldest was afraid of clowns for the longest time. Didn't matter what they looked like, all he saw was the clown from the movie!!

Have you read/seen "Mosquito Coast"? I read the book and was later more than impressed when I saw the movie adaptation. It's not a heavy read, but it is thought- and image-provoking. It's always THE singular example I'm able to point out.

I haven't seen or read it Z. I'm going to go to my library page though and request a hold.
