      Oh that one was quite the film, and surprising too, because the ending actually is surprising as these sorts of films normally have a different ending. I can't comment though in order to not spoil that aspect.

      But I can say it has vague 'zombie' like elements and if that isn't your thing the film won't likely be your speed.

      I didn't for a long time either.

        Now this film has some nice timing. Let me tell you not much makes me jump, but this film is truly good at the fright sequence part. Yeah it's not like you will be 'really' scared, as it's just a film eh. But dang if it came make ME jump, it is good and scary

        Got any favs to mention for films genuinely good at making you jump?
        I saw that movie and it scared me too...saw it when it was first out on cable....

          I'm not a big fan of sudden slash-and-gore; too many films substitute sudden gratuitous violence for meaningful suspense. I would have liked to have seen Jaws as directed by Hitchcock, for example.
          Yep, Alien is still the all time scariest movie for me, although the Ring (original Jap version) comes pretty close.

            Yeah the Ring made it kinda spooky looking at a TV screen with snow

            White Noise is also a good one for making it a good idea to not listen to static too intently after watching the film hehe.

            But Poltergeist owns that spot as it got there first a long time ago.

                Two films come to mind which really frightened me. The first has no monsters, ghosts or aliens, just a guy descending into madness. That was Magic with Anthony Hopkins in the lead as an insane ventriliquist. That one kept me up many a night. The second was the original Omen with Gregory Peck and Lee Remick. That one made me scamper for the Book of Revelation and tails of the Anti-Christ. So well done and and so chilling in so many places (lots of jump out of the chair moments).

                  Cant remember the name, but there was a film quite a while back in which the "monsters" came though the blank TV screen...Videodrome?
