Don't get me wrong, I liked the movie Trick R Treat. It is classic Halloween, but more horror than thriller. Needing a good, fairly clean, jumpy scary movie (new releases please) to show outdoors to a large group of teens. We like the spooky movies with a few scares, it adds to the excitement of showing the movie outside in the woods.

Any suggestions?
TIA

Blair Witch would be good in the woods, but if you're looking for new releases only then the only thing i can think of that fits the scary jumpy theme is Drag Me To Hell.

That being said, that's probably as far from 'fairly clean' as you could get.

But i think teens would love it, jumpy, edgy, suspenseful, and funny (the goat scene)

The Blair Witch, yuck. That movie scared me about as much as Monster House. As far as a jump out of your seats, fairly clean new release I dont think there is such a movie. Matter afact finding a scary movie these days is tough.

[REC] This is definitely not a clean movie but it fits all the criteria (Warning movie was filmed with a hand held camera).

Drag Me To Hell--Release date is next week. Again not a clean movie but fits most of the other criteria.

American Werewolf In London--Personally if I am watching a movie outside this is where I would start. Not clean, not new but I would start here.

Phantasm II--Surprise maybe, but this movie has finally been re-released on DVD after a very long time and is a sleeper. (Better than the original IMHO)


These are just a few options off the top of my head.

Even though blair witch isn't new or particularly scarey it might be if you are in the woods and you hear creaking branches and things to make you a little more on edge. Maybe have a couple volunteers randomly crunch through some leaves a little farther away from the screen when there's a quiet moment in the movie.

I wasn't that impressed with Blair Witch, I found it a bit slow. How about Jeepers Creepers the first one. Haven't seen it for a while but I'm sure there's woods in that movie somewhere.

The kids will be mostly 15-17 years old. Freshmen to Seniors in HS.
For that age group I would go with [REC] they will not be disappointed. This movie has some gore but it also has quite a bit of suspense and some nice jump out of your seat moments, plus a fantastic ending.

And be SURE to get REC and not the crappy remake Quarantine.

Sad its not on DVD, but the new Paranormal Activity, is clean and scary as hell!

The problem is there is not a lot of good new releases...you'll just have to shop around a little. Did you say you wanted it 'clean' or 'not clean'

Maybe the original Nightmare on Elm Street. They will get a kick out of seeing Johnny Depp when he's young. :)

It needs to be fairly clean. They are teenagers, but I don't think they need to see the porn scene in Trick R Treat (even if it is only 5 seconds long). Some things are more tolerable than others.

Blair Witch is great, but it is filled with the 'F bomb over and over and over. I might could let it slip once or twice but not 100 times :)

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Jumpy Scary Movie

How about the original "Night of the Living Dead". Its clean and scary...but not too scary. Its also in B&W and takes place in that old house.

Another idea would be "28 Weeks Later" which has kids as two of the main characters.

I agree with "Sleepy Hollow" (Tim Burton)... maybe more creepy / spooky as apposed to a thriller but always a classic! Also, no swearing as it's a period piece.
