I really loved the Haunting of Hill House. When I was a kid the movie scared the living bejeepers out of me. I watched it recently and the hubby just laughed. It doesn't have the same effect as watching it as a 13 year old, in a big house, in the dark (alone hehehe), at 2am as watching it on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon. Nope. Not the same thing at all. LOL
I enjoyed Rosemary's Baby. I don't know if I'd call it scary. I found myself watching the movie as I was reading it. It was one of the first books I read that the movie followed almost exactly. I was quite impressed. It's creepy & a good read but I don't know if I'd say scary.
I'm such a Halloween geek I got married on Halloween.
In a black dress of course. White was not allowed!
Legion is a highly underrated book. theres a lot of stuff in there that truly makes you think. i haven't read it in a few years but theres some scenes i still vividly recall; some scary, some scientific/theological.
the film version of Legion is highly underrated as well. theres a scene in there that startled me so badly that i had to stop the movie and go have a cigarette until i calmed down. and i'm a pretty seasoned horror fan so thats saying something. it usually appears in the horror film bins at walmart and target this time of year, usually for $5 or under and its definitely worth watching.
