Do you like scary movies? Do you love to be thrilled and chilled? To be scared out of our wits and half frightened to death? Well, it seems that lots of people love to feel the fear - the hair standing up on the back of your neck, the shiver that runs down your spine, and the all consuming fear that someone is hiding in the shadows.
Obviously no-one wants to feel this way in real life but everyone enjoys the simulated fear. A good scary movie can create a visceral fear that gives you all the scare with none of the danger.
So tell us - What's Your Favourite Scary Movie?
We have the fantastic classic horror movies, of the 50's and 60's, such as Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolf Man, The Mummy and Psycho, which in their day were very scary but don't seem that scary now days compared to newer releases.
We have such movies series such as Scream, Final Destination, Saw, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Prom Night and Thirteen Ghosts.
Maybe you prefer some of the Zombie movies that have been made, such as 28 Days Later, The Return of the Living Dead, The Walking Dead or Resident Evil.
There are plenty of scary movies based on the books of Stephen King, for example The Stand, Cujo, Carrie, Misery, The Shining, Salem's Lot, Storm of the Century, The Langoliers and Rose Red.
How about the comedy horror films which combine comedy and the horror fiction? Movies like Shaun of the Dead, Sleepy Hollow, Beetlejuice and Arachnophobia.
Horror movies are not everyone's cup of tea. Some people just can't stand to watch them and some people just love them.
Whether you love them or hate them, let us know - What's Your Favourite Scary Movie?
