Best Horror Movies of the 1990s


The Top Ten

1 Scream

This is one of the scariest movies I've ever seen, along with the Exorcist, The Thing, The Changeling. Definitely #1. - fireinside96

If “Scream” and “It” are in the top three this wasn’t much of a decade for horror! “Scream” was a solid, teen oriented movie but wasn’t near all time best status. “It” was a great concept but had way too many restrictions, being that it was a T.V. movie.

2 The Silence of the Lambs
3 Stephen King's It

The movie had too restrictions for its time. Except for a few moments, wasn’t that scary.

4 Cube

Watched this a week ago. It's the most scariest film from the 90s I've ever watched. The beggining was really creepy: a man got impaled and was split down the middle and fell apart into cubes, you could see his insides!

5 Candyman
6 Alien 3

Should of had more recognition, great movie, effects coould've been better though, but still a good movie - robertoantonioortuso

7 I Know What You Did Last Summer
8 Copycat
9 Army of Darkness

Are you kidding? This was one of the greatest horror movies of all time. It's part of a great trilogy and it's just pure greatness. Way better than Scream. Scream sucks.
