How Many Of These Horror Movies Actually Scared You?

Were you hiding behind a cushion or yawning until the end?

Some people can barely watch 10 minutes of a horror movie without jumping out of their skin, while others have a hard time staying awake because they think the movie's a right old snorefest. But how many of these movies scared you?

New Line Cinema

Below are 45 popular horror movies. All you have to do is tick off all the ones that scared you. Oh and btw, sequels and remakes count (for example, Halloween covers every movie in that franchise, so tick it if Halloween 2 made you scared, even if the original didn't).
