There was an incredibly sexy/scary theatrical production with Jeremy Brett as Dracula with sets designed by Edward Gorey. Get chills all over from just remembering it.

Gary Oldman was particularly sexy in Bram Stoker's Dracula ;)

And Daniel Craig is particularly sexy in everything :)

Dracula could almost be categorized as "romance." Alright, SCRATCH that as an example of ghost/supernatural. Let's replace it with, say, The Haunting.

I posed the question supernatural vs. sadism because I find the LATTER to be scarier. Take a look at the Bravo top 100 scariest movie moments:
http://www.bravotv.com/The_100_Scariest_Movie_Moments/index.shtml

The majority of these movies have to do with things PEOPLE do. Now if you REALLY want to creep yourself out, go to Court TV's Crime Library site:

...and these cases in particular:

http://www.crimelibrary.com/serial_killers/predators/bathory/countess_1.html
http://www.crimelibrary.com/serial_killers/notorious/fish/index.html

As far over the line as some movies go, like "Last House on the Left" or "Chainsaw Massacre" or the Hannibal Lechter trilogy, there is nothing in these movies which people haven't done in real life first. To me, that's the scariest thing. These things could totally happen to you and me. Pods from space? Maybe, maybe not!

So for me, Rosemary's Baby was the perfect combination of both. The people around her provided the ultimate paranoid conspiracy. In the middle of NYC she couldn't get away and she couldn't find help. Really well executed plot. PLUS you had the ultimate supernatural evil.

I thought for sure we'd have Tuscon's input on this thread...

Yes I wonder if he thinks either Johnny Depp or Daniel Craig are sexy?
 
Re: Scariest film ever made by Miss-M on 23 November 2006 4:14am
 
I think Johnny Depp is sexy. Daniel Craig isn't bad either from what I've seen of him. Might have to check out the new Bond, which is released in Oz on my birthday. Nice!

MIssy, how dare you bring Deppy into the conversation and talk about his sex appeal. You've got me hyperventilating now. Taaaaaaaaaaaake meeeeeee!
 
Re: Scariest film ever made by Spursfan on 24 November 2006 9:53am
 
Er...sorry I have to admit it was ME who brought up Deppy into the conversation, Pats, NOT Missy!

*Throws Pats a paper bag* you need to breathe into this!

And I'm front of the queue for Deppy anyway! Especially dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm !
