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

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.

23The Conjuring

The scariest movie I've ever seen in my life

A well-done old school horror flick.

Scariest movie ever! And based on a true story! What else do you want?

Horror movie ever it should on 1st position

Favorite movie ever! Last film shot in Technicolor

25Halloween 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.

26Rosemary'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.

27Dawn of the Dead
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.

29Last House On the Left (1972)V1 Comment

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 just loves the movie... One of the best thriller I have ever seen

What a movie, she is dam good

31Wrong Turn

this the best horror movie I have ever seen... second and third part are awesome...

It was a very disgusting movie... Someone eating the flesh of another person is not at all scary... The starting was good enough to convince the people that the movie is full of suspense... But gradually the movie lost the public's interest!

Ugh cannibalism freaks me out BIG time! and how they look *shivers* - misskikii

Great fear in every arteries

32Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

Its just unbeaten...
Bruce campbell shows his real talent...
He is just unbelievable...! 11

33The 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.

34The 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

35An 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

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

36American Psycho

Another film inspired by Ed Gein.

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

37Child'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

This movie is scary because it is based on a real live event when a doll tried to kill a doctor
