Horror Movies That Relate to Phobias

This list actually uses an objective list as formula: the 10 most common phobias. With that list, I matched up each fear with a horror movie. Vote for whatever scares YOU the most!

Here is the original phobia list: http://psychology.about.com/od/phobias/p/commonphobias.htm

The Top Ten

1 Arachnophobia - Arachnophobia, the Fear of Spiders

Everybody's at least a little freaked out by spiders. - ThatStrangeKid42

2 Anaconda - Ophidiophobia, the Fear of Snakes

It may not be scary as a movie, but...snakes! - ThatStrangeKid42

3 The Final Destination - Acrophobia, the Fear of Heights

This could also be a good movie for Pteromanherophobia, the fear of flying in an airplane, which appears elsewhere on this list with a different movie attached to it. - ThatStrangeKid42

I used to have acrophobia. - Fandomstuck

4 [rec] - Agoraphobia, the Fear of Situations In Which Escape is Difficult

Both this and the American remake, Quarantine, display terror over an inescapable, killer situation. - ThatStrangeKid42

5 Cujo - Cynophobia, the Fear of Dogs

Stephen King is the master of playing with your phobias. Clowns, isolation, socializing, and of course...dogs - much more common phobia than you would think. - ThatStrangeKid42

6 Audition - Trypanophobia, the Fear of Needles and Injections

This is a very disturbing movie - trypanophobes, DO NOT watch this. - ThatStrangeKid42

7 Carrie - Sociophobia, the Fear of Social Situations

The socially awkward and outcasted Carrie White, driven mad finally at a blood-soaked high school prom. - ThatStrangeKid42

8 Quarantine 2: Terminal Terror - Pteromerhanophobia, the Fear of Flying In an Airplane

Like the first Quarantine, victims of a mutant virus are on lockdown with no escape - this time, all inside an airplane. - ThatStrangeKid42

9 Contagion - Mysophobia, the Fear of Germs And/or Dirt

Not really a horror movie entirely, but it's all about spreading germs and disease. - ThatStrangeKid42
