Films involving greys

There is nothing scarier than a grey, so I'm looking for some films to watch that'll make me piss myself. I just started Dark Skies, so that'll be good but I'm gonna need some other films too.

Please I beg your forgiveness for my ignorance, but what is a "Grey"?

Like an alien that resembles a human, traditionally grey, found about New Mexico.

Agreed. What's a Grey? When I first saw the thread title, I thought the OP had somehow mistyped 'gays'.

Edit - ninja'd!

Watching Dark Skies atm and it's fucking terrifying. Little grey ghouls just freak me the fuck out.

An alarm got tripped in the house and the alarm company phoned to ask what the password was etc. And she was like, "I'm sorry sir, there's been a malfunction" and he's like, "what alarm was tripped?" And she's like, "all of them."

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH LITTLE GREY GHOULS

I saw the thread title and I was going to suggest "Signs" until I saw the picture in the OP, I guess you've seen Signs?

You know, I can't think of many movies that feature greys. Maybe it's because I haven't bothered watching many alien movies.

But the best "alien" movies don't have "greys" in them. Like Alien, Aliens, Prometheus (I guess the Engineers are somewhat like a grey), E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Wars, Predator, blah blah blah.

Ya, that'd be terrifying it would also pretty pretty offensive.. although I guess being scared of creepy aliens is offensive to them too. Sorry aliens.

OT, I have no idea

Close Encounters of the Third Kind aliens are not to be consider "Greys"?

It's not exactly scary, but the movie "Paul" :P

Wasn't sure what he meant either because I'd say it's a term we barely use.

Just looking at those eyes give me chills ALL THE TIME.

There's honestly nothing scarier than a good alien story. Dark Skies was alright, scared the shit out of me.

Signs was great! Scared me a lot when I was a kid.

Oh, shit! For some reason I was thinking about Super 8 and merged the alien from that to the Close Encounters plot.

I guess there's one mocumentary I've heard of called "The Fourth Kind." It got really shitty reviews and it looked dumb so I never bothered watching it. I'm not sure if it features grey aliens specifically. But Milla Jovovich is in it.

The Fourth Kind - Official Trailer - YouTube
A girl I know recommended me it when I told her I was making my way through some alien films. Looked shit, but eh, I've got nothing else to watch and wanna watch greys.

The Fourth Kind is actually better than most give it credit, and it does have some truly unnerving parts to it (and, yes, it refers to greys).

The problem with the film is the mockumentary stuff, all of which has been staged and is not 'real', interspliced with script-reading actors in a drama. They try too hard to make the events in the film seem real, like found-footage flicks, instead of just telling the goddamned story.

It's pretty annoying the way it's kinda set out and the text looks weird like TV sci-fi. Some cool ideas so far though, like the owls stare.

Signs was decent enough until the end, then it got a bit silly.
