The scariest things I've seen lately would be the survivorman show, especially the one where he was adrift at sea in little lifeboat. Some of the conpspiracy theory videos out on the web with the unification of north america and a new currency, the implanting of microchips as the new form of ID,etc. Horror movies these days aren't scary per se, society has become so desensitized you have to have torture porn just to be shocking and even that has been overdone and everyone is pretty much acclimated to it. And then you have movies that turn the volume up real high on the soundtrack and make things pop up so your natural response is to react to it. I think the movie that scared me the most as a child would have to be "Return of the Living Dead", espcially the zombie that came out of the canister. Probably the only thing that are still terrifying are UFOs because of the whole mystery surrounding them and the abduction stories. Then there are the Shadow People lol, but it's usually a cat jumping to catch a butterfly. You have occult stuff out there too that can be sort of scary if you give it any credence, but I guess I'm going off on a tangent here, this is about scary movies. I think nothing is scarier then just living real life.
