Well, so we are talking extensively about `Scary` movies. Of course, a staunch movie goer can name many movies ordinarily fall in the category of Scary/Horror and surely there are some of classics too. I never would wish to add `gore` kind movies like Evil Dead, Elm Strees, Friday the 13th and those blood suckering which depicts nothing short of repulsion on the name of horror. We have in our personal library many good examples of scary movies ranging from Dracula, Frankenstein to the latest sci fi. Nevertheless, I would love to name `The Ring` of this genre which not only acclaimed appreciation of critics but also it has done sizeable income at box office. `The Ring` released in 2002 and it has set a trend of `polished scary movies`. Indeed, watching this movie, all alone inside the home, can prove a hair raising experience, yet it is not at all a gore or only filthy blood shedding type one. It has some decent moments and classy acting especially from movie heroine beautiful Naomi Wat ...more

EXORCIST:: The idea for The Exorcist originated from Washington, DC, articles in 1949. The tale of a supposedly true exorcism case caught the eye of Georgetown University student William Peter Blatty, who decided to write a novel about demonic possession. However, it wasn't until 1967, with his screenwriting and literary career taking off, that Blatty was able to interest a publisher in his idea. Blatty completed his novel in 1970 and it was published by Harper & Row in 1971. The book was a smash hit, spending 55 weeks on the "New York Times" Bestseller List.
