If you’re anything like me, you love getting a cheap thrill by watching scary movies and clips online. One of this week’s most popular viral videos, the trailer for the remake of Straw Dogs, is just that: a terrifying thriller that will make you never want to be home alone again. Well, at least in the south.

Here are some other clips that have rattled our bones in the past. Just because it’s not Halloween doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little fright.

This spoof trailer for Clown (supposedly by Eli Roth) was so successful at scaring people that it actually got Eli Roth’s attention. The Hostel director got in touch with the creators, and he will be co-financing their vision.

This isn’t as much terrifying as it is creepy and weird – and a brilliant bit of directing by Chris Cunningham.

Chat probably doesn’t want to go to Roswell, New Mexico for vacation.

Now this one won’t terrify you, but it will show you someone who gets the @#*$)(# scared out of them by someone blowing their nose.
