If you like having the crap scared out of you, then run, don't walk to your nearest cinema to watch "The Others" starring Nicole Kidman. I went to see this last night with a couple of friends, and found the suspense so rivoting, with a build up of fear so compelling - I actually found myself putting my arms down at my sides to make sure that when I jumped in horror I would not accidentally gouge myself with my fingernails...
"The Others" is one of the best scary movies I have seen - better than "The Shining" - on par with "The Exorcist". Nicole Kidman, who I have never been a fan of, puts in a tremendous performance, and the two kids who play her children are outstanding.
Don't let anyone spoil this movie for you - just know that it is about a woman living with her two children in a large mansion in the mid 1940's.
Be warned: don't expect a good nights sleep after watching it, though...

LOL at craig ! you threw me off with the fingernail talk
I am AMINAL
Actually, Bam, you are right - that fingernail comment was pretty faggy... How about,
"The tension was so taut that I feared I would hit myself in the balls when jumping in fear..."
or, "The tension was so intense, that I had to sit on my hands in fear of bashing the puny little dude on my right with an inadvertant jerk of surprise..."
Hehe - maybe I should leave the movie reviews to the fat guy on T.V....
Gonna go check it out.

"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

Craig, you're the third person now who has recommended that movie for a good scare...I'm not a Nicole Kidman fan either, but I love a good horror movie.
I could give all to Time except - except
What I myself have held. But why declare
The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
And what I would not part with I have kept.
