What films have always stayed with you forever that you will never forget. Mine is "Picnic at hanging Rock" its extremly memorable, very ponderous, the scenery is beutiful but it always leaves you wondering what happened to those girls and the fact if tells you the bare minimum and makes you think of it yourself makes it all the more haunting. So what about you :)

I think Picnic On Hanging Rock was made even more haunting because of the debate about whether it was a true story or not. I liked that film too :)
Don't Look Now and The Pianist are films that stayed with me long after they ended.

The only movie that's made me feel uncomfortable for a while after I've watched it was "The Mothman Prophecies". It creeped me out.

We camped out in a wood in the middle of nowhere once with a portable DVD player and watched the Blair Witch Project... it freaked me the hell out, I was like 15 at the time. I don't think I've ever been so scared. :lol:

But uhm, most haunting films? The Pianist, Schindler's list and Hotel Rwanda come to mind, not necessarily scary haunting, more continually recurring to mind type.

I read the first book before I saw the film. And then I found out there was a new version where the author added one last chapter but it was still really confusing and still didn't explain much at all but maybe that was the intention ;)

Although, it still doesn't explain it totally, because I don't think there was ever one set explanation :)

i love the imagery in 28 days later, the director paints such a beautiful picture in many of the scenes, as well as in the dreamers. The imagery in both movies sitll haunts me, but in a good way! :)

Phase IV (about intelligent ants)
2001: A Space Odessy
The Andromeda Strain
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Cat and the Canary (both the 1927 and 1939 versions)
MirrorMask(I can never listen to the Carpenter's Close To You the same again)
Miracles Still Happen (about a lone plane crash survivor in the amazon)

And there is one more but can't think of the title right now. It's a New Zealand scifi film about Holocaust survivors and in the end, the main characters wakes up on a beach with a Saturn-like planet in the sky.

That night I saw the movie and looked up on the internet for more information. It was even creepier than watch the movie because the website has everything sources like share their experience with the mothman-figure, etc. Anyway, I went to bed and can't sleep because of it! :o I wish I shouldn't look up on the internet :p

You did not say that :o Sorry bis, but that movie was so lame. My cousin told me how scary that was, and after the previews I was so psyched for it. Once I saw it...i was like what the hell!?!. That part with the alien walking through that kids birthday party was beyond lame :lol:

I have to say, it takes a lot for a film to haunt me or for me to be satisfied, but two films that had me going are:

1. Saw 2
2. Cabin Fever

Some of the films mentioned I haven't seen or heard of. Definetly a good thread for movie ideas :)

That was an incredible intense film. Had not been that exhilirated about a film in a long time........ending was predictable but satisfying.

*SPOILERS for Signs ahead*










Gah. That movie is on TV right now, and I can't properly describe how disappointing it is for me. The movie did have an effective, creepy atmosphere for most of the running length, and then... the inevitable twist. :rolleyes: It was like, "Hey. How can I ruin a perfectly decent thriller about aliens? Oh, I know, I'll add a deep meaning about how all things happen for a reason and turn it into a message movie!"

Seriously, I LOATHE that twist. It's like, sure, Mel Gibson (don't remember the actual character's name), clearly God killed your wife in a terrible car accident so that she could make a dying comment to "Swing away." As if it's that difficult to figure that you should swing a bat at the alien attacking you. And obviously, God must have figured the other people around the world killed by the aliens were disposable in God's quest to give Mel Gibson an epiphany about faith. Because Mel's family is apparently more important to God than anyone else's.

That's not even mentioning the idiocy of an advanced alien species traveling to Earth when they can't survive exposure to WATER. Our atmosphere is made up of what % water? And the aliens decided to just invade without any sort of protection against water? Ridiculous.

Yeah it was really intense, an edge of the seat thriller. About the ending I thought it was rather unexpected but well pulled off; I never saw it coming and could have never thought about it. When I saw the ending first time I watched the movie I was like WTF?? Then I watched it again there were so many clues during the early part of the movie and everything fell into place.

Still though, what made the film so effective for me was how down-to-earth the story really was. More on storyline and less special effects.

After all, what do we really know about Aliens but what we have invented in our own heads?
