Best Horror Movies of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Exorcist (1973)

By far, this is the one that stands out. I watched it one time and have never watched it again, and I'm 42. Other movies about possession don't bother me as much, to a point, as this one did. Deservedly so, Aliens is in the top 10. Poltergeist, specifically the clown scene, is still the reason I can't stand clowns to this day. IT should be higher as well. Paranormal Activity (1) deserves its spot, as that movie kept me on the edge of my seat and my wife afraid to sleep at night. JAWS needs to be higher on the list - great directing, acting, etc. Plus, I was afraid to go into the ocean for years after seeing it in the theater!

The Exorcist remains in a league all by itself, without a doubt the most profoundly disturbing film ever made. For those of us who believe in God (90+% of the American people), the reality of spiritual good and evil is a given. Those employing the laughing "it doesn't bother me at all" reaction are either lying, utilizing a defense mechanism, or simply don't believe in the existence of anything beyond our physical world.

I'm here to tell you that the vast majority of people who see this film, whether yesterday or 40 years ago, will be emotionally affected at the very least. The production values were very high and have held up well. Acting, writing, directing, cinematography, and soundtrack are all stellar. It's a story well told. It's certainly a different animal than all the blood-and-guts slasher films. While the vast majority of "horror" films merely shock and repulse (nothing wrong with that if you enjoy them), The Exorcist tends to deeply disturb and truly frighten the ...more

What an amazing film. I can't believe how much this outstanding masterpiece affected so many people who watched it when it first came out. I love this movie to bits. This film isn't only my favorite horror movie, but also my favorite movie of all time. You don't know horror until you've watched this movie or at least read the book it's based on. And if you don't like it because it's not scary, remember, horror can become outdated. This movie is a bit outdated, but at least give it appreciation. (You faithless slime!)

The girl who plays the exorcist is absolutely fantastic. Just the way that she slams herself against the bed and talks seems so realistic. The acting seemed accurate and the directing was fantastic. Most directors would forget to tie her to the bed or add cheesy effects, but William Friedkin is spot on.

2 The Shining

People often don't realize how great The Shining is, whether you're looking at it from a pure horror perspective or simply acknowledging its overall brilliance. Critics often complain that it differs significantly from the book, but every time I watch The Shining, it feels like a journey. The movie not only boasts a suspenseful and intriguing story but also showcases incredible directing by my all-time favorite director, Stanley Kubrick.

It was filmed at an interesting location, The Timberline Lodge, known as the Overlook Hotel in the movie. The cast was also remarkable, featuring performances by Jack Nicholson, Scatman Crothers, Joe Turkel, and Philip Stone. Beyond its place in the horror genre (which is my favorite), the movie is still one of my all-time favorites. When compared to supernatural and slasher films, they don't stand a chance.

There's no beating this one. The casting, the acting, the soundtrack, the effects, and the overall tension it builds are all simply perfection. Jack Nicholson is simply the best at crazy character roles, and the things Shelley Duvall went through during filming were heartbreaking but gave us the most terrified performance I've ever seen. Even Danny Lloyd was great as a child actor.

This film doesn't cheapen the experience with jump scares or lazy effects like many do nowadays. Kubrick had a vision, and by God, he made it a reality. He builds such a crazy yet intense atmosphere. Even I found myself shivering at times, and I watch horror all the time. I can't get this film out of my head. It answers questions by giving us so many more mysteries to unfold. Overall, 11/10, my favorite movie.

My all-time favorite horror movie ever! Seriously, it's not about being scary. It's the subtle imagery and pacing that make this movie great. Also, it's a very memorable movie! "Here's Johnny!" "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." "Redrum." Those constant looks given by Jack, "murder," the two girls, and "Come play with us forever..." and the hallucinations by Jack! I remember like one thing from a supposedly good movie, "Alien" (I don't like "Alien"), and those scenes weren't that great.

Even the beginning of the movie was a little memorable to me! Maybe it wasn't exactly like the book, but dang, this was an incredible movie! Even Danny was played disturbingly well (as in his role was disturbing, not that he was so good it's disturbing, but he was good!). The build-up is magnificent, which leads to an awesome conclusion, unlike other movies I know, *cough *cough "Alien" *cough *cough. Definitely worth a watch, and I think anyone, even a person not into horror, should ...more

The greatest horror movie ever made, this is the most intense, thrilling horror film ever created. Jack Nicholson delivered an incredible performance, as did the actor who played Doc. Wendy, portrayed by Shelley Duvall, was underrated. She was fascinating in this movie. There is no horror film that can top this masterpiece. Stanley Kubrick is simply one of the greatest directors, period. The movie is filled with unexplained theories. One of the things I love about this film is how realistic it is. It's one of my favorite movies of all time. This movie deserves to be in the top 10 and should be number 1 on this list, period.

3 Halloween (1978)

Not only is it one of the best horror movies, but it's also one of the scariest. This movie inspired me to become a horror film director, and without this movie, I probably wouldn't have gotten into the horror genre as a whole. It's so good it uses lighting to its advantage to bring out the scariness of the psycho killer's mask, and the jump scares are terrifyingly memorable.

Also, this movie is not like a lot of other horror movies where you have some unknown thing trying to kill people. It's realistic and something that could really happen to any of us. But it all takes place on Halloween, in the nighttime. Without this movie, franchises like Friday the 13th and Scream would probably never exist. One more thing: the survivor of this movie is one of the smartest victims and is definitely one of the best horror movie heroines of all time.

I started watching horror movies 37 years ago, at age 8. I have seen every type of horror that has any substance. Occasionally, I might get a chill down my spine. For the most part, they didn't bother me too much. I still love to watch them for the plot twists, unique scenery, and kills. Here are the 10 that I have watched the most:

1. Halloween (1978)
2. The Exorcist (1973)
3. Jaws (1975)
4. The Shining (1980)
5. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
6. Carrie (1976)
7. It Follows (2014)
8. The Conjuring (2013)
9. Psycho (1960)
10. Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter (1984)

Come on, people, Halloween is the best one out of all the others because Michael Myers is pure evil! You'll all see what I'm talking about after 08/31/07. Halloween is indeed the creator of all slasher films. If it weren't for this movie, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and all those so-called "scariest movies" would not exist! So think again and vote for Halloween.

I feel like this movie, along with several other classics like Psycho and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has really inspired several other people to get into filming horror. They have set the standard for modern slasher films and horror in general. This is just my opinion, but I believe Halloween is the best horror film.

4 Alien

The fact that this is below Nightmare on Elm Street is insulting. Alien is not only the best horror movie of all time but also one of the best films ever made. What really separates Alien from the other films on this list is its beautiful cinematography, masterfully crafted tension, and interesting cast of characters. The people in this movie aren't stereotypes or dumb teenagers but real people who undergo real growth throughout the course of the film. Not to mention it had a badass sequel in Aliens as well.

What's wrong with this top 10? Straight-to-DVD films and remakes? And let's not forget a certain over-appreciated gore franchise that spawned seven agonizing sequels. Oh yeah, Alien is awesome. It has the best movie monster ever conjured and is one of the most suspenseful movies ever made, with imagery that haunts to this day.

The original, the second, Prometheus, and Covenant were all awesome! The third and fourth ones, not so much. The reason Alien is so cool is that it's original, the casting is great, it's scary, and it has lots of famous moments.

This list seems to have forgotten that there's a difference between being the greatest and being the scariest. This movie is great AND it is scary. That is a big enough accomplishment to earn it top-five status.

5 A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

A legit Wes Craven horror movie. The sequels were all cheese and fairly stupid. This original one, though, was the most chilling. There weren't silly Freddy one-liners. Freddy wasn't over-the-top and crammed down the viewer's throat for the 90-minute duration. And I have to admit that the story was original and actually fairly good. It was an instant classic.

This film was actually based off of a true story! I'm not even kidding. And before you all ask, no, there was no real Freddy Krueger who killed kids and came back from the dead as a ghost. Director Wes Craven stated that he based this film on events reported of people dying in their sleep. This disease is known as Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome (SUNDS).

The amount of creativity needed to concoct a story like this was brought to life by one of the forefathers of the slasher horror genre. This genre dominated the '70s to '90s, with some influences even seen in modern horror films. Taking away the meaning of sleep for a generation has made Freddy Krueger a pop culture icon.

Silence of the Lambs wasn't even scary to me. I actually laughed at one point. This movie will scare you. You won't be able to sleep. I had a nightmare featuring him when I least expected it. That's why I'm typing this as a ghost, or something.

6 Psycho (1960)

Such an interesting and tense movie. It defined the entire genre of horror. The next best horror movies they had were laughable monster movies like Dracula and Frankenstein. This is classic horror at its best and was the career-defining movie for the genius himself, Hitchcock. While it's not as scary as the movies we get today, it has a gripping feel that keeps you in suspense the entire time. A definite must-see movie for anyone who hasn't seen it already (I'd be surprised if you haven't). It's 100% better than the cheap, cliché horror movies we mostly get today.

Psycho is #6... I expected this from the world today. May I ask you, where would horror movies be today if it weren't for Psycho? Without Psycho, there would be no Exorcist, The Shining, or Silence of the Lambs, among others. Hitchcock's Psycho redefined the horror genre. Despite being over 50 years old, it's still a pretty scary movie. It also has one of the best plot twists ever in movie or book history.

Sir Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, gives us Psycho, the chilling tale of Marion Crane, who was gruesomely murdered at the Bates Motel while on the run from the law for stealing $40,000. The soundtrack is chillingly perfect, and the acting is superb. Who did it? Was it Norman Bates, the boyishly charming owner of the motel? No, it couldn't be. But his mother seems a little bit suspicious.

I have an unpopular opinion: that Psycho is the greatest horror movie ever created. This movie is groundbreaking and very influential. It is Hitchcock's greatest masterpiece, and the acting is on point. Anthony Perkins' role as the quirky, troubled, mommy's boy who also happens to be a psychotic killer - that is, Norman Bates - is especially notable.

7 Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

I'm voting just to comment on this. This was the grossest, most disturbing thing I have ever seen. If you want to squeal at jump scares with your boyfriend, watch an '80s slasher movie. If you want your stomach to roll for days after you see something, watch this. I've never had to turn my head at any amount of gore, but there were times I had to look away from this. While it was kind of crazy, it was amazing for its time. Keep in mind, this is from 1974. It scares you in a way you're not used to and doesn't quite match up to any specific genre of 20th-century horror, like the '60s unstoppable force of evil or the '70s man-in-a-mask.

This should be the scariest movie of all time. It features a girl running from a big guy with a chainsaw and wearing skin on his face. In real life, your heartbeat would be so fast that you would soil yourself. Whether you're a man or a woman, you would scream very loudly, knowing you are going to die if you don't escape. In this case, you'd be eaten. Jaws the shark is scary, but I don't go swimming in the ocean, maybe just a swimming pool. That's why Jaws is not scary to me. That's what I say. I live around rednecks. That's why The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1974 is the scariest movie of all time.

Horror movies don't scare me. I have a dark sense of humor, so I usually laugh at them. I'm voting for Chainsaw Massacre because Leatherface was inspired by the real-life killer, Edward Gein. (I know Psycho and various others are inspired by him, but I like this representation the best. It's the closest and darkest.) I'm intrigued by serial killers from a psychological standpoint.

Okay, most films in the top ten deserve to be there, but I'm sorry, this is THE best horror film. It works outside of the horror genre as a film itself. Maybe some films are scarier, but this was revolutionary in its time. The makers of this film were daring. This film pushed boundaries and is an absolutely iconic piece of art.

8 The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs is easily the best horror movie I've ever watched. The movie itself doesn't rely on excessive gore. So when it does use gore, it's highly effective and much more frightening. This movie also never had a dull moment, in my opinion.

It is one of the few films that never becomes uninteresting. With the help of genius characters and dialogue, the movie cultivates a slowly growing sense of suspense that persists throughout the film. Furthermore, it doesn't resort to flooding the viewer with horror clichés and unoriginal plot points. This movie is a true original.

Not only are the plot and characters twisted and disturbing, but it's also evident that the storyline was carefully mapped out and must have required an extreme amount of effort. Combine all these elements, and you have a cinematic gem and a horror classic that will be remembered for eternity.

Gore and lots of blood can be exciting, as seen in Evil Dead, Saw, and Friday the 13th. However, the best horror movies are those with less blood and no gore, like The Shining, It, Alien, Psycho, and Rosemary's Baby. Silence of the Lambs is upper-class, featuring two terrifying murderers excellently portrayed by Levine and Hopkins. It's the best role for both of them. Lecter is downright scary, while Bill is also frightening. Jodie Foster and the rest of the cast approach perfection. To conclude, the dialogue was excellent. Silence of the Lambs deserves a top 3 spot.

Silence of the Lambs is scary where it really counts: the mind. Unlike mindless slasher movies and even worse horror movie remakes, Silence of the Lambs stands out because it could really happen. Additionally, it is the only movie on this list to win an Oscar for Best Picture.

One of the best films ever, Anthony Hopkins has a way of becoming the character he's playing, not just acting the role out. In my opinion, this is what makes this film bone-chilling. "It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again."

9 The Thing (1982)

This movie needs to be higher on the list. It's a classic horror film with great characters, settings, suspense, and gore. You won't be able to forget it. I watched this film when I was 21, and it still shakes me up to this day.

The special effects are solid, and most of them actually feel very real. The suspense this movie hinges on is what makes it so enjoyable, and the mystery adds to that. We never truly see exactly what The Thing looks like because it takes on the form of its host, kind of like a shape-shifter. Since we never see The Thing's real form, that's what makes it even scarier on its own. We leave it up to our minds to figure out what it looks like, and I love that. Usually, the things that are unknown are the scariest parts of all.

The thing that really stands out and is scary is how well it was made. It's John Carpenter's masterpiece, in my opinion. More Lovecraftian than the original '50s movie, the idea of the Thing being a parasitic shape-shifter is terrifying. The special effects match the director's vision. The spider head is just one of many practical effects that CGI could never match. Although set in the Arctic, it's also a very claustrophobic film. This movie just edges out The Exorcist for me as the best horror film of all time.

I just watched it, and it's definitely in my top 10. The movie gives off a strong sense of paranoia because they don't know who has been infected with the thing/alien life form at any given moment. This paranoia is demonstrated by phenomenal and realistic acting. Not to mention, the special effects for this movie are off the charts, especially considering it was released in 1982.

This is one of the most realistically gory and brutal films ever made. For a 1982 release, everything looks real. Especially when that guy's head comes off and starts crawling like a spider. That was amazing. It should be number 2 on this list. Most people just don't know how gory this film is.

10 Scream (1996)

This movie totally revitalized the slasher genre and, really, all of horror. It started a new trend of smart, suspense-driven horror movies. The entire franchise is a classic!

Awesome movie. One of my favorites. It has lots of suspense and thrills. The plot and story are both interesting and thrilling. It's not boring at all compared to other horror films.

To me, this was the perfect slasher movie satire/homage by all standards. Even the sequels, ironically enough, were actually pretty good.

Best horror movie by far. It's not unrealistic, which makes it even better. Anyone could dress in a costume, and that alone is scary! So this is a 5-star for me, and the best horror ever to be filmed and shown!

The Contenders
11 Saw

How is this not number one? Texas Chainsaw Massacre is weird. In Scream, Billy and Stu act like they're mentally ill at the end, but it's still very good. The Shining is weird with that kid who talks to his fingers, but it's a great movie. All the others in the top 10 are awesome, but Saw is a masterpiece. Not just the first film. All eight were truly thrilling to watch.

Saw is not necessarily the scariest movie, but it is a great movie if you want to see some gore. The story is also very good, considering it spans seven movies. The end was such a twist. I loved it. The reverse bear trap was the best. It's too bad we don't see it actually work until the second time. This movie deserves to be in the top ten.

Saw is an amazing movie, but unfortunately, every sequel had a hollow plot and was just an excuse for producers to mangle and mutilate people for money. Like Halloween and Nightmare On Elm Street, this falls under the category of horror films that had a great opening and several terrible sequels.

I watched it for the first time in 2017, and it was amazing. Like everyone else, I would say it's scary, but it was fantastic. The character development of Adam and Lawrence, along with the insane plot twists, will keep you interested until the end for sure. Also, that amazing scene in Adam's apartment when the lights are off is just so great.

12 Jaws

It's funny how a movie that frightened people so badly they stayed out of the water for two years could slip this low. It had a little bit of everything: a beautiful town, a strong family unit, and a mayor who only cared about money and prestige. Not to mention, a hard-nosed sea captain. All this, and there is a 30-foot monster shark waiting to ruin them all. People, I know most of you like everything to be new, but this movie, at 43 years old, is great in every way. Please, vote it up.

Dude, I love this movie! It's one of my favorite movies of all time! I still remember not being scared of the shark or the water after watching the movie. I also just love the whole idea that "it's what we don't see that really scares the crap out of us."

It was the beginning of the blockbuster era, but what a cool beginning. Action, excitement, terror, and a few laughs - it had it all. This was Spielberg at his best. And the clincher: relatable characters and great acting.

This movie had a very high budget when it came out, and many people liked it. It definitely made a lot of people afraid to go into the water. It has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

13 Paranormal Activity

PA1 scared you, whether you admit it or not. It did. Now, PA2, PA3, PA4, and I'm sure the uneagerly expected PA5 are quite different stories. They were pumped out as fast as Mel B pumps out kids. No thought to the story and terrible, terrible acting.

Now, the acting in the first WAS sub-par, but it didn't affect the overall movie in such a huge way that it was unwatchable, unlike the other three. Please, dear God, no more. But back to the point: great movie. It kept most of us up googling demonology and eyewitness accounts of ghosts, I think.

I went to the movie theatre with my best friend to see this. We thought it would be FUBAR... I nearly crapped my pants. He was so scared that he fainted and they had a paramedic take him away and everything. I don't know if I can say anything else about how scary this movie is.

Paranormal Activity 4 is my favorite movie, and it's not even paid attention to. I just found it at my local store and watched it with low expectations, but it turned out I liked it better than the other four. But the first one is pretty awesome too!

Original horror is always the scariest. But this one combined Blair Witch-style found footage with a steady dose of Amityville Horror-style haunting. This movie has the creep factor for sure!

14 Friday the 13th (1980)

Far scarier than half of the films above it. I'd think twice before going on a camp now. I think the key elements of this movie were the fact that you don't know what or who the hell Jason is until the end of the film. And then you kind of regret finding out. It's brilliance - a magnificent piece of horror filmmaking. Should be in the top 5.

It may not have Jason Voorhees being a badass horror villain here, but it is still an awesome movie. This film sparked the beginning of a new era of adding sex scenes in horror movies, mostly slashers.

How come Friday the 13th is not higher on this list? The movie's main killer, Jason Voorhees, is the most portrayed horror movie killer in the world. Though people, when portraying him, make him have a chainsaw, Jason never had a chainsaw. He always had a machete. Come on, people, get Jason's weapon right!

I grew up watching scary movies, and Friday the 13th is by far the best scary movie I've seen. I never wanted to go to summer camp after watching these movies.

15 Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Romero created zombies with this movie! How many directors can claim they started an entirely new creature or genre? Back then, it was bold and new. I just watched the documentary. Filming was so challenging they weren't even sure they would finish it. They had no budget, so they used locals for zombies. The crew also worked as actors. For example, the actor who played the jerk in the movie was also the producer and makeup artist. Many scenes were improvised, and the budget for sound mixing was secured last minute through a game of chess! It became one of the most iconic films ever, which is quite an accomplishment.

Night of the Living Dead is one of the scariest movies of the '60s, besides Psycho. The best zombie movie I've seen should rank sixth for the best horror movies ever made.

This movie began the "zombie" genre, which runs amok today, and should be ranked in the top ten! "Night of the Living Dead" is the granddaddy of "The Walking Dead"! Not scary? You've got to be kidding! The innate fright is greatly multiplied due to the film being in black and white. Incredibly creepy and original!

16 The Omen (1976)

This is a vote for the 1976 "The Omen," not that two-bit hack job that opened on 6/6/06. This movie freakin' traumatized me the first time I saw it. It sent Christians into counseling.

Great movie! I love it. It has good picture and quality for an older movie. I even like the idea. Time to find Damien: Omen II!

If this is only number 18, then it's sadly underrated. A top-ten horror film for sure. My personal favorite.

How the hell can Paranormal Activity be higher than this masterpiece?

17 Stephen King's It (1990)

I know many of you may not think it is scary and, in a way, it's not. But understand the potential that this movie has in modern day. It is the essential "kid-friendly" horror film. It has mummies, clowns, werewolves, photographs that come to life, and a clown's face melting. And all of this is done with '80s cheese and Tim Curry giving 110% in every scene. While it is by no means a perfect movie, it does have its place.

Great horror film, especially the fact that it makes you imagine the off-screen deaths as you want. Creepy clown, incredible performance by Tim Curry, good flashbacks, and lack of blood.

I saw this when I was maybe 6, and I flipped. I am now 13, and I am terrified of drains in public restrooms. I will not go to a place with sheets hanging outside. This movie is truly horrifying, and I'm really scared of clowns now.

Next Halloween, I'm going to dress up as a clown, stand on street corners, and wave at anyone who looks out of the window.

18 The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

I just watched the original movie by Wes Craven, and I think it's probably one of the best horror movies I have ever seen! It is so gritty, brutal, and full of a dark atmosphere. I definitely recommend this one for any horror fan!

This is my favorite movie of all time. The special effects were amazing, and the makeup didn't look like makeup. Go Jupiter's clan. I love you!

The film keeps you wondering what the hell is going to happen next! You also feel so much pity for the victims at a point. Great film.

The remake is the best version for me. Relentless brutality and torture. It's a truly brilliant movie, which I thoroughly recommend.

19 The Grudge (2004)

This movie is so scary! The Grudge and The Ring always seemed similar to me because they had the whole drenched in water, dark-haired girl thing going on. Don't watch it by yourself in the dark. You'll regret it. Also, how is Saw #5? It's not that scary. It uses one little thing called gore, which I don't find frightening. Jump scenes are where it's at.

I'm not sure why it's not number one. I've seen the top three films above this, and they don't scare me as much as The Grudge. The first one I saw was Grudge 3. The scene where she comes out of the painting just thinking about it gives me bad memories and shivers. When I watched it, I couldn't even walk into a room without turning the lights on and looking beneath my bed and in my closets, etc. I guess it's number 4 because not many people have seen it, but seriously, this freaked me out!

The Grudge is the best film I have ever seen. I'm telling you to watch it, and you won't be able to sleep for a couple of days. The ghost is the most frightful character in the whole film. Watch it and you will know that it is the most horrifying film.

This movie is about dying with anger and hate. It lives up to that theme all the way through. This is one of the few horror movies that should have never had a sequel. It was definitely good enough to stand on its own.

20 The Conjuring

James Wan is a brilliant director, and this is honestly some of his best work. He also directed Jaws, The Conjuring 2, and Insidious. He is currently working on Aquaman. He gives you time to like the characters, and the plots are not too complicated. But what sets it apart is the fact that it's a true story! I recommend The Conjuring for modern horror fans.

While I was looking for the original Amityville Horror, I stumbled across this one. AH was a spookfest that just didn't have much of a surrounding story. The Conjuring not only references AH through the use of the Warrens, but it also has the flexibility to deliver the spookfest while maintaining an intriguing storyline. Wan did a brilliant job making this movie and, in my opinion, it's a must-see if you are a horror fan.

Please, bring it to the top 3. It has the best direction, I would say. It's flawless. The background score and night modes are amazingly crafted. This piece is by James Wan, who also delivered the Saw series earlier. Please vote for The Conjuring!

It is the scariest movie I've ever seen. I couldn't sleep at night for two months. The effects were nice, and the sounds stuck in my mind. It is the best horror movie. I like it. It was nicely directed and it's based on a real story, which is the best part of this movie.

21 Suspiria (1977)

Suspiria should get more credit. It's the best horror witch film of all time. It should be ranked higher. I like the color in the film. It has some of the best music in horror films.

Favorite movie ever! Last film shot in Technicolor.

The original was awesome! The reboot sucks though.

Weird as hell!

22 The Ring

I love this movie. Even though it's not the kind of film that is considered good outside of the horror genre, I still adore it. I watched The Ring when I was 10 with my best friend, and I admit we were not scared at all. We even laughed many times. I seriously don't understand why people think it's so scary. I've watched this movie more than 10 times and never got scared, but I still love it. It was a significant part of my childhood.

It should be higher. There's really a scary atmosphere in this movie, and the cast is perfect. Naomi Watts, as usual, and all the other actors and actresses convincingly play their characters. The combination of superb acting with an outstanding script is very rare in horror movies. That's why I believe this movie needs to be ranked higher.

So, my best friend, his brother, and I watched this on Halloween night. At first, we thought it was cheesy and not scary. But at the end, when the girl crawled out of the TV, we were terrified. Then, exactly seven days later, I was at my aunt's house and saw a ring from where a table had been. I freaked out and thought I was going to die! So scary!

How can this movie be ranked at number 9? You won't believe that I've seen all the movies on this list, and I find this one to be the scariest. After watching it, you won't be able to play a tape or switch on the TV. In terms of horror and acting, this film leaves you speechless.

23 Carrie (1976)

I really like this movie. It wasn't that scary, and it was a little slow, but it was great. I was really mad when the bucket of blood fell on Carrie, so I was quite happy when Carrie got her revenge. I liked it when she killed Chris, who was my least favorite character.

I don't know which was scarier: the wide-eyed Carrie on stage or her hand coming out of the grave? This was one of the greatest revenge movies ever.

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!

The book was great.

24 Wrong Turn (2003)

Wrong Turn was brilliant. I bet I've seen it over 100 times and I still get something from it every time I watch it. It will forever be my favorite movie. If you're looking for a good 83 minutes of your time, you won't regret using it on this movie.

This is an awesome movie! Along with its sequel and The Hills Have Eyes, of course, they are my favorite movies of all time.

This movie creeped the crap out of me. Just seeing the cannibalism and the mutants hunting down people is just creepy.

Underrated. Only fans of the horror genre seem to like it, but it's actually just a great movie.

25 Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

It's just unbeaten. Bruce Campbell shows his real talent. He is just unbelievable! 11.

This should be in the TOP 10!

I grew up with this film and I can't forget any line from it.
