If you haven’t seen this make sure you see the original and not the sequels, or the TV show. It truly is one of the scariest films I’ve seen. Some everyday objects will not appear the same after seeing this film. I think also seeing kids being scared also turns up the creepy and believability factor. A hair-raiser for sure.

This film is including in my list of Scariest Movies of all Time!!

You're right Shannon, the fact that they not only scare kids but focus on them is very frightening! The family is such a real, believable family too and so likeable, you just hate to see them torn apart.

There are rumours that this is a cursed film too, some of the actors lives ended soon after the movie which adds a whole new layer of creepiness for me.
