Least Scary Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 Paranormal Activity

This movie was made for the people that think Charlie Brown with a sheet over his head is scary!

First time I saw this, I was young so I found this scary. Looking back on it, I say to myself "Why did I think that was scary? " All of the stuff is so predictable especially the ending.

The ending was so predictable, when it happened I just laughed

One of the most overrated horror flicks of all time - Mcgillacuddy

2 Halloween

Are you kidding? The Halloween movie is a classic, h20 I understand but not the first one, its awesome, better then a lot of the dumb crap put out lately

Whole movie I was thinking is it over yet. It was boring. I am 14 years old so that probably has something to do with it. - Eemeli

This was terrifying compared to Friday, Nightmare, and Texas

I have watched so many horror movies, that I am numb to any of them being scary. Halloween has a handful of intense moments but is not too scary. Compared to a ton of other horror movies, Halloween shouldn’t be near this list.

3 Boogeyman

The most boring film I've ever seen, complete with a cringe worthy monster reveal.

4 Jaws

The first half of the movie is fantastic. I loved it. Then they get on the boat and Quint, the least believable crazy person of all time, decides to ruin the whole ambiance of the movie. Then we see the shark and think...that's it? Then we get goofy Quint and rubber shark together at the end, Quint yells a lot and spits out ketchup, the shark looks hilarious hanging over the edge of the boat, and then the shark is defeated in one of the cheesiest ways imaginable. By the time you're done with the second half of the movie, you'll forget the amazing first half and not be that afraid of the water.

I saw it when I was eight, and I loved it. Parts of it scared me at first, but I got over it. Looking back, it's not horrifying. I liked it a ton, though. Thanks!

Did you know the director of this movie just wanted to show the nature of sharks but when the results of this movie came out he was shocked

Bad movie. It doesn't make any sense. - Userguy44

5 The Happening

Is this even horror... ?

The only thing scary about this movie is Mark Wahlburgh's acting.

6 Stephen King's It

I agree that this made-for-T.V. movie did not capture the true terrifying horror of the novel. This book is phenomenal and deserves a better movie. Thank goodness Warner Brothers is currently working on a new film version for theatrical release. They say it will be broken into two films. If done right, this could be epic.

Tim curry doesn't even look like he's taking the role seriously. He just keeps laughing and telling dumb jokes. He's more of a nuisance than he is a threat.

I am 11 and I thought this was going to be scary but it was just funny. If there was a scary bit it would be when the clown climbs up the pole in the book and scares the living crud out of the loser club.

Not scary at all.
(I am referring to the 2017 movie)

7 Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

This sounds weird. What's next? A movie about when baseballs attack footballs?

Tomatoes HAHAA more of a comedy movie than horror - AJIsTheCoolest



8 Saw I

saw 1 was pretty much just there to start up the story saw 2 was the one that crepped me out comepletely

Saw has a lot of gore! It is a horror film!

It passes off as a horror movie just because it's torture porn and gory. Sad - Mcgillacuddy

To be honest this movie is kinda great and awseome BUT it's so over-rated like many 'horror' films (For me aat least) And its just pure gore mixed with serious F-Bombs. Another movie I LOVE probably because of the storyline and the whole experience was 'Descent' Whhichh was 'A LITTLE' worse and scarier than this but barely mentioned... HOW COME? - marlonacott

9 Halloween H20: 20 Years Later


10 The Exorcist

There's something wrong with the people who vote on this, paranormal activity, number one! I know that most of them aren't scary but volume one... And the exorcist number ten in front of scream. I mean this is THE EXORCIST we're talking about, not attack of the killer tomatoes!

At the time it came out, and for a few years after this movie may have been frightening, but today, this movie is actually a little sad, and a lot over-rated. I laughed through a lot of it, and only got the slightest chill when she went down the stairs upside-down. I was quite disappointed. - heather

Its not the graphics it's the concept... Scariest movie ever. graphics are not everything, people

How? This is one of the scariest movies ever? - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 The Shining

It was a horror movie? I thought it was a action movie. Except the part where that chick met a man in a dog suit kneeling in front of a man. That's it. - lassidoggy

This is a good movie but I really don't understand why everyone thinks it's so scary - Ajkloth

Waiting for the Top 10 funniest Jack Nicholson faces.

It's REALLY good made movie but it's not scary

12 A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Revenge
13 House of Wax (2005)
14 I Know What You Did Last Summer

More of a drama, thriller or action movie. Not at all a scary movie

It's not that great. It's very derivative.

15 The Blair Witch Project

Blair Witch Project Should be 1

I thought this movie was dumb.

This is such a stupid film. - MoldySock

All shaky camera, zero horror.

16 Friday the 13th

When the mom at the end of the movie was trying the kill the main character and also talking as Jason, I was laughing my ass off

Hey! I was born on Friday the 13th

17 Scream

After the first death it became cheesy and stuff. Decent plot but just not scary - AlphaQ

18 Book of Shadows - Blair Witch 2
19 Gremlins

20 Dead at the Box Office
21 The Grudge 2

No way. This one is scary as hell! - Userguy44

22 Tremors
23 Devil

The majority of it is just boring then you get the back story and lo and behold... still boring

24 An American Werewolf In London
25 Ax 'Em

its so boring and not scary
- B0untyHunt3r

26 The Possession
27 Jason X

How are trolls getting classics to rank so high when crap like this, with no tension even in its kill scenes, is right here ready to choose?

28 Killer Klowns from Outer Space

This is one of the greatest movies ever

29 Slither
30 High Tension
31 Krampus

I like this one

32 Dire Wolf
33 F*** Norge
34 Child's Play

It may have been scary back then, but now it's just really corny and really dated. Besides, after brad dourif is shot in the beginning he doesn't act like he's feeling any pain. He sounds like he's annoyed.

35 The Gingerdead Man

It is funny


36 A Nightmare On Elm Street

Very let down by this movie. Did not enjoy it at all. - Co0lk1d25

37 Les gloutonnes
38 Cursed

Not scary but a good movie - JaysTop10List

I never got scared during the movie.

Not scary but my fave film so I voted - Elicia

46 Freddy vs. Jason
47 [Rec]

Just imagine... A Spanish Quarantine... Dun dun dun! - fireinside96

Not scary. Just weird. - Userguy44

48 The Midnight Meat Train

Sounds like a gay porno

49 Return of the Killer Tomatoes

A lot more stupid than the first tomatoes movie! I don't see nothing scart about it! Where's the blood and gore in this one-cent-a-penny movie?

I'm surprised it had money for a sequel

50 Leprechaun

I don't hate the movie, but I still have to say that for a horror movie, it's really not scary.
