This week, TWQ (The Weekend Question) takesw a look into the essence of a scary movie:
What is it in a movie that can make it scary for you? Quote some movie examples that you remembered well because they left a scary impression on you.
My answers are:
For me, it is not knowing what is going to come next; the movie might be overall quite mild, but the uneasiness in the movie will leave a lasting impression.
The scariest movie I ever saw by far was the recent Japanese movie 'Audition'. It has an air of unease throughout the film, until the psychopathic Japanese girl gets her cheesewire on the paralysed man and says "Kitty, kitty, kitty."
Other scary movies for me are the 1932 movie 'Freaks' and the Hitchcock 'Psycho.'
Now it's over to you...
