The Ex­or­cist. My par­ents screened it for my 15th birth­day party. And it freaked me out so badly that my friends teased me about that, they would run up be­hind me and go, “Dimmy, Dimmy, Dimmy…” When I got my car when I was 16 years old, my li­cence plate was “Dimmy”. That movie scared the shite out of me.

There were a cou­ple. One of them was a movie called The Fly (1958). When the sci­en­tist took off… [laughs] he was cov­er­ing his face and he has a fly-head – my pop­corn went fly­ing. I jumped up. I was scared. And the orig­i­nal The Thing scared me. Oh, boy…

DAVID GOR­DON GREEN

I saw a film called The

Creep­ing Ter­ror. If you watch it now, it’s sort of garbage. But at the time, I was five or six, and it was night­mar­ish. There’s an eerier, low-bud­get qual­ity to it that now is to­tally en­ter­tain­ing. But at the time, I re­mem­ber my dad laugh­ing at how scared I was.

JA­SON BLUM

Fri­day The 13th was re­ally scary to me. It had more to do with the age that I saw it than the movie in par­tic­u­lar. I think The Shin­ing is a re­ally scary movie. Rose­mary’s

Baby is kind of a haunt­ing movie. I guess I don’t get scared any more watch­ing movies, but you get haunted, or they’re dis­turb­ing.

DANNY MCBRIDE

I saw The Shin­ing at a re­ally, re­ally early age. It fucked me up for years. I couldn’t go into any bath­room with­out look­ing be­hind the shower cur­tain. I just think that’s the best kind of hor­ror film. It’s not just jumps… it plants a seed of some­thing in your head that, when you’re alone or when it’s dark, that seed starts to grow.
