What makes the perfect horror movie?

We are always on the hunt for the scariest movies, and you can help. Rate your favorite movies from three different main categories:

When the movie was over, did it stick in your head? Or was it done and gone, like your ex? If your brain was chewing on itself for days afterward, bump this up. Highly disturbing movies include The Exorcist and The Ring. Non-disturbing movies include Zombieland and Bambi.

Gallons of it! Buckets of blood! Slammin’ slaughter! Extreme entrails! Oceans of organs! We’ve heard that the movie Martyrs is, well, high-level gore. Lowest-level gore is something like The Others.

This category records your stress level during the movie. Did you feel like someone could die at any time? How long did it take you to un-burrow out of your chair? Movies with high levels of suspense include The Shining and The Strangers. Movies with low levels of suspense include Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
