Say you enter the bathroom and draw the shower curtain to find a naked human hunched up in the corner of your shower. As the figure turns to look at you, is it more scary to find that they have all-black eyes or all-white?
But we try to pretend, you see, that the external world exists altogether independently of us.

All white would make me think they were blind. All black would make me think they were supernatural. The latter is much more frightening.

Are you writing a horror story?

None of the above. All red would creep me out the most

I think both although personally I think you can use the color of white, which is generally associated with innocence and good and so forth, in sinister ways--a form in white walking in the middle of the night (see 1:23 and then on to the disappearance of the figure) to create some atmosphere.

This is actually relevant to a costume design i am helping prepare. It is important you do not know the details, because it will alter your standpoint.

I'd read the Genre Savvy-ness guide to Horror Movies and proceed to put as much distance between myself and the general area as I possibly could.

See, I carry a shotgun with me whenever I take a shower, so before it could even look at me, it would feel several rounds of buckshot course through its body.

Also, would the naked person be female? :D

White, especially if you're doing a costume.

Maybe, but she'd be like 11 if she were.
