Least Scary Horror Movies


The Top TenXW

1Paranormal Activity

This movie was made for the people that think Charlie Brown with a sheet over his head is scary!

The ending was so predictable, when it happened I just laughed

PLEASE get this movie up to #1 on this list... All of the paranormal activity movies are so bad. I watch them, then 2 seconds later I'll go up to bed, in the dark, unphased.

Are you kidding? The Halloween movie is a classic, h20 I understand but not the first one, its awesome, better then a lot of the dumb crap put out lately

This was terrifying compared to Friday, Nightmare, and Texas

4The Happening

The only thing scary about this movie is Mark Wahlburgh's acting.

The first half of the movie is fantastic. I loved it. Then they get on the boat and Quint, the least believable crazy person of all time, decides to ruin the whole ambiance of the movie. Then we see the shark and think...that's it? Then we get goofy Quint and rubber shark together at the end, Quint yells a lot and spits out ketchup, the shark looks hilarious hanging over the edge of the boat, and then the shark is defeated in one of the cheesiest ways imaginable. By the time you're done with the second half of the movie, you'll forget the amazing first half and not be that afraid of the water.

Everyone thinks its scary but sharks aren't that aggressive and don't go that close to the shore

Its not a scary movie but a good movie to Watch. - CanadianGuy99

Dumbass people don't know this film came out in the 70s

This sounds weird. What's next? A movie about when baseballs attack footballs?

7Stephen King's It

I agree that this made-for-T.V. movie did not capture the true terrifying horror of the novel. This book is phenomenal and deserves a better movie. Thank goodness Warner Brothers is currently working on a new film version for theatrical release. They say it will be broken into two films. If done right, this could be epic.

Tim curry doesn't even look like he's taking the role seriously. He just keeps laughing and telling dumb jokes. He's more of a nuisance than he is a threat.

I am 11 and I thought this was going to be scary but it was just funny. If there was a scary bit it would be when the clown climbs up the pole in the book and scares the living crud out of the loser club.

Come on this should be number 1

8The Exorcist

At the time it came out, and for a few years after this movie may have been frightening, but today, this movie is actually a little sad, and a lot over-rated. I laughed through a lot of it, and only got the slightest chill when she went down the stairs upside-down. I was quite disappointed. - heather

Its not the graphics it's the concept... Scariest movie ever. graphics are not everything, people

This movie is funny rather than scary. It's too old to be taken seriously.

Not scary at all

9Saw I

saw 1 was pretty much just there to start up the story saw 2 was the one that crepped me out comepletely

It passes off as a horror movie just because it's torture porn and gory. Sad - Mcgillacuddy

To be honest this movie is kinda great and awseome BUT it's so over-rated like many 'horror' films (For me aat least) And its just pure gore mixed with serious F-Bombs. Another movie I LOVE probably because of the storyline and the whole experience was 'Descent' Whhichh was 'A LITTLE' worse and scarier than this but barely mentioned... HOW COME? - marlonacott

10The Shining

It was a horror movie? I thought it was a action movie. Except the part where that chick met a man in a dog suit kneeling in front of a man. That's it. - lassidoggy

This is a good movie but I really don't understand why everyone thinks it's so scary - Ajkloth
