Yeah I first saw Alice when I was a kid when it came on TV.
But I found it fascinating in a strange way and then I grew up and forgot what it was. The internet came along and I tried to search for it. All I could remember was "puppet rabbit eats sawdust" or some other similar weird things. But eventually I found it. Dunno how it didn't scare me as a kid xD I somehow found the scene where Michael jackson turns into a werewolf at the beginning of Thrilller creepier (old school makeup effects) and other stuff.
Films that scare me are usually the ones that leave it to your imagination because my imagination is much scarier, I hated the dark as a kid since I would imagine things in it. I realise how cheap a move it was but Blair Witch Project *shudder*... Stuff like The Ring didn't creep me out after the movie was done, since the danger was visible (except for the stuff about 7 days that might have creeped me out a bit due to imagination again). This group of Japanese girls freaked though:
The Thing was in a sort of similar vein but not fully since the danger was still somewhat visible (other people). But I still really liked that film, it's a very different sort of horror, more sinister. A more recent film The Hole tried a similar thing, hated the ending though since it didn't feel like the kind of cliche satisfaction I would of wanted lol.
And for horror games, Silent Hill doesn't "scare" me (played all except Origins/Shattered), disturbing though in parts yeah. Fatal Frame I think is scarier because dangers are more hidden sometimes than mutated monsters or zombies coming at you.
It's interesting the different things that scare different people. I remember going to Jurassic Park 2 The Lost World as a little kid and there was a adult man in the row infront of me who was really freaking out at the bit with the velocaraptors in the tall grass, it was pretty funny. But everyones different.
