Scariest Movies of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5XW


Wasn't scary, but nasty as hell. - The reason for my vote is simply because it's brilliant. Couldn't agree more with a murder.

This movie is scary. John Doe gives me nightmares. And who can forget the "What's in the box"!

82Phone Booth

What isn't scary about a dude trapped in a phonebooth by a sniper in the buildings who no one can see? The sniper makes him do whatever he wants, and the scariest thing is his voice. Imagine a bone-chilling, everyday American voice, but calm and evilly saying- "hello stu. " DAMN, this jerked me for ages. I certainly ain't been in any phone booths for a while, and I intend to keep it that way, even if the nearest one is next to my best friends house! - Mushroom99


Not at all what I was expecting from the first 20 minutes. This movie gets seriously twisted on a whole new level.

84The Babadook

It's a very scary movie. It's not a monster movie, it's a movie about grief and how it effects people which makes it scarier...

Scariest movie I ever did see. Far, far, more terrifying than Insidious.

The director of The Exorcist said it was the scariest movie he has ever seen. Why the hell is it below movies like Star Wars, Iron Man 3, Kung Fu Panda, and 300? They don't even qualify for horror!

Very underrated film, with a excellent twist at the end.

93Shutter Island

Watch this movie it is very well done the ending may or may not surprise you, shows the capability the human mind.

Not a horror, but a great psycho story

94The Nightmare
95Burnt Offerings

If we're talking about the Thai one, it's one of the best horrors I've watched. I'm not easily scared by films, but this one's got what it takes. It's also created in a very clever way, I love how everything at the beginning gives us the clues about what is happening and why. - saaar

The original Thai Shutter scared the hell out of me when I watched it on my couch. I highly recommend it. The ghost make up alone is terrifying. I'm sure it's low on this list simply because not enough people have heard of it or they assume we are talking about the remake.

Last minute = the best part of this movie, unpredictable...
This is best horror movie ever

Best Asian horror movie

Stupid American remake - phenylamine

97An American Werewolf In London

The effects on the were wolf are some of the best I've ever seen! They should play this in theaters around Halloween so that people can see how awesome the transformation is.

Hilarious dark humor, but scared the crap outta me. Best werewolf in any movie.

"This should be number 1 for the transformation sequence alone."

That werewolf howl scares the living hell outta me

98The Devil's Rejects

My favorite movie. It's not a jumpy, boo type of horror but it is an amazing movie, & a must see. I class this movie as a thriller not a horror movie. Rob zombie really has become a great film maker.

Not that scary but dope story n twisted good movie people...

One of the Greatest movies of all time!


This movie is like so creepy! Esther is actually a 32 year old woman who has this rare dwarfism that makes her appear to be a 9 year old.

A creepy movie, I love how the girl has the mind of a 32 year old when she is actually only 8 or 9, and the things that she does to the family that she is adopted into as well :/

Scared me couldn't go to the backroom all by myself IF you love scary movie you should watch it if your not a fan than don't prefered 14 and older

This movie is super scary
