It’s Halloween, and that means, once again, it’s time to start thinking scary. The classic sci-fi horror flick, Alien, has always been near and dear to my heart and, in my opinion, one of the scariest films of all time. In fact, unlike most comic book fans who found their passion for “the pulp” in the superhero genre, it was my obsession at a young age with the (then) Alien Trilogy that lead me to seek out Dark Horse Comics’ Aliens comic line of the early '90s, open the pages in hushed awe, and start a life-long addiction. The original film, Alien, is an intense, terrifying, and masterfully crafted example of both the best of science-fiction and horror genres.

There aren’t too many things that are as frightening as the tongue-twisting title above, but if you decide to stick around for the rest of this sordid, little tale, I can promise you a story that won’t disappoint. (No guarantees and no money back. Offer valid in 49 states. Sorry, Tennessee.)

When this assignment was first sent to me, my mind immediately went into a racing frenzy! I mean, there are so many amazing villains out there in the comic book world, not to mention those in film, TV, books, video games, and whatever other media you can think of. But, who is ultimately the SCARIEST?

I don’t recall exactly when I heard about the 2010 South Korean thriller/horror movie, I Saw the Devil, but one commenter stated that it was one of the most disturbing films she’d ever watched, and I was hooked. I had recently gotten onto a Takashi Miike kick, so Asian horror was on my radar, but I didn’t know where to start. (Horror can be hit or miss for me.) Upon hearing that I Saw The Devil portrayed horror, atrocities, and fear beyond my wildest imagination, I had to see if I could handle the twisted revenge tale. I found a movie with incredible gore, creative brutality, and that left me wondering whether the main character was someone I wanted to root for after all.

I attended high school in the late '80s in a small, isolated town in Arizona.  This small, isolated hgh school boasted about 60 students during the years I attended; there were 15 kids in my graduating class, and we were one of the bigger classes.  We were over an hour away from the nearest “big town,” from its movies, malls, and restaurants.

There’s a scene in Michael Crichton’s sci-fi thriller, Prey, maybe halfway through the book, that for me really encapsulates what makes it such an intense, amazing read. At the beginning, our protagonist/narrator Jack is an unemployed software developer, now stay-at-home dad. He wrangles the kids all day, pretty much by himself, while his wife works longer and longer hours and seems increasingly distant and uncaring.

Writing about what the scariest film ever created is is like trying to choose your favorite dessert when looking at a giant buffet of gourmet treats. There are so many classics in different genres worth mentioning, typically horror - Psycho, Nosferatu, Silence of the Lambs, The Shining, Let the Right One In - but I am going to talk about a film that sent chills up my spine, horrified me, made me question humanity, and realize . . . I can be scared, truly scared.

I’m a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. That said, and given that when I watched the first series, my geeky teenage life had already led to me becoming a seasoned fan of the R-rated horror genre. I have to admit that despite all the things that made the show great, it wasn’t what I considered “scary.” Whedon and crew did pull it off once or twice, though, and the best example of how unsettling and frightening Buffy could be in the right hands is surely the haunting and silent episode, "Hush."

You're probably thinking, “Really, Kristine? RPGs can't be scary.” While it's true that an RPG system by itself is not that scary, when coupled with the right GM, it can create the perfect storm. While in my case the scariest and creepiest game I've ever played in was a Mage: The Awakening game (All the GM's doing and mostly not on purpose. The full story is recounted at the end of Worlds That Never Were Episode 2), the RPG system that is the scariest in my opinion is the master, Call of Cthulhu. Here's why:

I fell in love with The Phantom of the Opera at the age of twelve, when I first heard the song "Think of Me" from the world-renowned Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Over the years, my love of the music has led me to see the musical twice, watch at least three movie renditions, and read a variety of Phantom novels, including the original by Gaston Leroux, a continuation, an audio book of the original on cassette tape, and a poorly executed erotic re-imagining of the story. With such a deep immersion in the world of Phantom, I should have been able to see the true intentions and nature of the original story, but I, and many modern fans, were blinded by the romantic angle of the love triangle between Christine, the Phantom/Erik, and Raoul. It took my father’s pithy review of the musical (I believe his words were along the lines of “I don’t know why this show is so popular . . . unless it’s all women who have had a stalker.”) and a careful re-read of the original novel to open my eyes to the pervasive horror of the piece.
