Luna: The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2015). It’s horrifying and exceptionally well made.

Jennifer: The Blair Witch Project (1999). Terrifying without gore or gimmicks, and we all thought it was real.

Valerie: I slept with the lights on after watching The Silence of the Lambs (1991).

Janet: Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) and Poltergeist (1982). I had nightmares over Poltergeist. Oh, and Wait Until Dark (1967) with Audrey Hepburn.

Shannon: I don’t know about scariest, but the most scared I’ve ever been from watching a horror movie was Hellraiser (1987). I was 13 when I saw it. I slept with my parents that night.

Jaden: Because it’s based on a true story, I’d have to say The Conjuring (2013).

Scott: Salem’s Lot (1979). It was suspenseful because you don’t see the vampire until the end of the movie.

Shara: The Grudge (2004). What made it so scary to me was that I believe in spirits — the good and bad ones.

Sarah: The Evil Dead (1981). I usually enjoy scary movies, but this was a horrible idea.

Christia: The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) was pretty scary. I believe demons and stuff like that are very real and demonic possessions happen. That movie was so good.

Nancy: I haven’t seen another scary movie since Poltergeist (1982). I’m the adult who still makes sure my closet door is shut before I go to bed.

Brent: Pet Sematary (1989). As a kid who grew up with animals, that movie messed with my brain.

Jose: The Exorcist (1973) is the best scary movie, in my opinion. I like the golden oldies.

Alison: Event Horizon (1997). Now it’s being made into a TV show.

RanDee: Both of the Pet Sematary movies (1989 and 2019) scared me. I usually don’t like scary movies, but I went with my daughter to the new one. It was so good that we rented it again.

Sabrina: Prince of Darkness (1987). I saw it with my boyfriend and his best friend. Both of them walked me to my door afterward because neither of them wanted to walk back alone or stay in the car. It freaked us out.
