Big horror fan here, too. Though I guess I was kind of sheltered as a kid, so I didn't really watch The Exorcist properly (on video, was born in 76 so I couldn't see it in theatres) until I was an adult. And when a movie is hyped up as much as that one was...well, it was good, but seemed a bit dated as well. But any movie would find it hard to live up to that "scariest movie ever" hype. I'm sure if I saw it back when it came out, I'd have been terrified.

Personal favorites (either best or scariest, not always the same) include Let the Right One In, Let Me In (remake of previous), The Thing (80s), Alien, Suspiria, The Fly (80s), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (70s), The Mist, Event Horizon, 28 Days Later, The Descent, the first Saw, and the show The Walking Dead. I also really like Asian horror, haven't seen that mentioned yet. Ringu (remade as The Ring), Ju-on (remade as The Grudge), The Eye, and Shutter (both remade as the same). Just something about them creeps me out like no other movies. Sometimes I'll like the remake at least as much if not better, sometimes I'll prefer the original...usually depends which version I see first.

Finally, I hate to say it, but I think I'm the only horror fan that can't get into The Evil Dead (sorry). Or the only one who admits it. I grew up on 80s horror, so I feel like I SHOULD like it, but... Maybe because I didn't watch it until a few years ago (again, I was sheltered as a kid, I guess I didn't have any cool friends to turn me onto it, since it was a cult movie, not the kind they'd show on TV), so I watched with my grown-up mind. Just seemed really gross and loud...gross-out horror isn't my thing. And I have to be in the right mood for campiness. I'm a lot more into atmospheric horror, films that just give you a sense of creepiness, rather than hit you over the head with stuff lol Though I'm sure if I'd first watched it as a teen, when horror was new and exciting for me, all taboo, I'd have loved it. Oh well.
