Iím just too much of a sissy to watch scary movies. If I go to the theater, Iíve got to hold onto someone and keep covering my eyes. If I watch at home I have to keep turning the sound down. Itís much less scary that way.
My vote goes for Silence of the Lambs. I saw it at home alone and had to watch it twice that night because the first time I had the sound turned off too much.
Also, the first Alien movie. The soundtrack at the theater was deafening and unremitting. Plus it was filmed so dark, it left a little to your imagination which is usually superior Ė whether itís a horror movie or a love story.
