21Poltergeist

I have read so many reviews and seriously it's really very scariest and scariest movie. you can't take it really... If you really want to be scared I must say do watch it

Has the perfect amount of scary. Has you scared even when you think it's the end.

This should easily be in the top ten - happyhappyjoyjoy

No at all scary better for kids and not for adults.

22The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Its like a super scary movie I thought it was super scary I'm a big fan

I love this movie so much! It was both realistic and absolutely terrifying. Toby Hooper at his very best.

23Night of the Living Dead

Not that scary but the part where the zombie girl kills and eats her own mother will freak you out

No this is not at all scary don't waste your time

The scariest movie I've ever seen in my life

A well-done old school horror flick.

25Orphan

This movie freaked me out so much! Oh myy the scariest part was that she was a grown woman who liked to harm people. And she was scary looking and just totally 666! I couldn't trust little girls for a month!

I saw this when I was 6...

Could not sleep for a week...

Good movie after 5 years of avoiding this movie

I did not feel scared but this movie was awesome one of the best movies I have ever watched.

What a movie, she is dam good

26Halloween II

Whilst it was never going to be as fresh as the original it is still creepy, suspenseful and offers nice closure for the first movie.

27Suspiria

Favorite movie ever! Last film shot in Technicolor

28Freddy vs. Jason

OH YEAH! This is what I'm talking about. Who cares what anyone says about this movie. It is the greatest in horror crossovers. If a mortal fighting an immortal doesn't sound epic to you, then you're totally bonkers.

30Child's Play

The First Time I Saw the Movie I was 11 back then. Chucky Mostly Made my 6 year old sister piss her pants. When Chucky Came To Life and said, Hi I'm Chucky Wanna Play!. My Sister Ran Out Of The Theater Screaming. She Had Nightmares That Night. She Dreamed That Chucky Would Open her bedroom door climb onto the bed and gouge out both of her eyes.

This movie is a classic. Used to scare the hell outta me when I was a little kid

I was 7 the first time I saw this movie it was very scary I still enjoyed it thou

Stupid movie

31The Evil Dead

This is my favourite movie of all time! This movie proves that you don't need a big budget to make a good movie! I didn't see the new one but it defiantly can't beat the original classic!

This movie deserve number 1, this movie made me watch & collect horror movies to my movies collection. I strongly believe this movie is the mother of almost "block buster" horror movies.

Bruce Campbell is awesome, best horror film of all time, watch it!

Maybe not the scariest movie; but it's the one that I watch the most. It hits all the right notes.

32The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Just watching this movie makes me shiver to my spine... The storyline was creepy and the acting of everyone was amazing. Still remember I was alone and there were 20 to 30 people in the theatre and after watching the movie when I was walking I kept on looking back to check if anyone was following me...

This movie by far is the scariest demonic possession horror movie that is based on a real story. Just the thought of having things inside of me/anyone is just plain terrifying. The even scarier thing is that the demons won and after being possessed for six years the little girl died because she could not take it anymore. Poor thing...

This should be the best movie of all time.. But to be honest not a scariest movie... But acting story was way above excellence... Nice court room drama... But should be at least deserves 2nd spot..

I watched this while I was in the shower witch made it 3 times as scary - NUMETALFAN

33Rosemary's Baby

This is the best horror movie ever, smart, scary and bizarre at the same time, I hate those people who thinks this movie is boring and cg movies are good.

It's the best horror movie of all time along with the exorcist.

34Dawn of the Dead

The Best of zombie movie in the world

35Insidious

I have seen almost every movie on this list, I don't scare easy but this movie almost made me piss myself like 12 different times. Left me lying in bed staring at the door making sure nothing was coming in.

Y is this movie so down below in the list... And look at the movies which r on the top... Is this a list of top horror movies or what? What's wrong with people they r voting for saw... COME ON

Ill personally keep it on 1st. All the classic horror fan following is just bs to me. No horror movie can be like this. Insidious is just horror and horror from the beginning till the end. The soundtrack alone is enough to give you sleepless nights. Watch the movie alone in the middle of night and slowly the horror surrounds you for many nights. It might induce you sleep paralysis beware.

This was some scary stuff, surprised it wasn't higher in the list

36American Psycho

Another film inspired by Ed Gein.

I think it was more inspired by Ted Bundy. Or maybe both.

37The Sixth Sense

i see dead people...all the time

Good movie with a twist some people can communicate with the dead whether they want to or not God decides

Brought back ghost movies. The Others stole the twist and Paranorman stole the whole concept

I can't say this is scary but a good film

38Carrie

The only movie to make me cry. It is so disturbing and emotional. That jump scene at the end is one hell of a jump scene!

Actually this movie was a mediocre for me, well it may seem OK, but this wasn't scary at all. Anyway, this movie wasn't so bad, at least it's emotional & well made. - Fan_of_Good_Music

40An American Werewolf in London

This film had me jumping with fright! Not to mention rick baker's amazing transformation.

It is a genuinely scary movie, the transformation scene is yet to be bettered, a complete story

Have you ever tried talking to a corpse? It's boring. - AwesomeJ1800

Equally strong in being both a memorable horror and a memorable comedy. - BKAllmighty
