    Halloween Special: Films that scared the **** out of you

    I'll kick this off with a personal top five:

    1. Shutter
    2. The Omen
    3. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    4. The Shining
    5. Psycho

    I almost doubled my dry-cleaning bill watching the thail movie Shutter in a cabin with some friends back in 2006. Highly recommend it if you want a good scare.

    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan

    The Witches (I know)
    Original Omen (was around 5-6 when I saw it and it gave me nightmares)

    The Orphanage was pretty creepy when I watched it. Ju-On, Ringu (and its American remake), The Devil's Backbone, Audition I all found either scary or unsettling. There have been some quality Spanish and Japanese horrors in the last couple decades.

    The crunching of the bones was the worst part for me. Shivers down the spine.

    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?
