  1. Haven’t seen most of it but Joker did look scary to me from the start. I think he also crept me out because of how he looked, tangled hair, the uneven make up he looked a bit disturbing in all that gear. Clockwork Orange yeah this and fucking Exorcist give me creeps. I couldn’t sleep for a week because of the scenes in this review.

  3. I’ve been a fan of Doug’s videos from the beginign, but to be honest – wasn’t watching them for about two years, sorry. Now I’m re-watching the NC videos from the start and I don’t agree with every list NC’s put together, but this particular list made me take my time to register. Why? Because simply not having Jack fucking Nicholson and his creation of John from The Shining on this list AT ALL is purely a big load of bullshit. I really don’t have any other explanation for this beside amnesia. Also, didn’t find Ledger’s Joker scary at all – he was awesomely psychotic and it was a great performance – it just wasn’t frightening. And Kathy Bates should be higher – I’ve seen Misery as a kid and also as an adult and as a 27 year old woman I can still say, it was, is and will be one of the scariest performances I’ve ever seen.
