Scariest Movies of All TimeRevan Similar to the list of the best horror movies ever made, this list highlights the movies that made you jump the highest and cursed you with the worst nightmares.
The Top Ten
Easily one of the best films ever crafted in any genre. It will remain a classic until the end of time for its disturbing imagery and dark atmosphere.
I think the Grudge and the Ring are highly overrated. People need to watch the real horror masterpieces of yesteryear.
After all these years it still creeps me out big time!
Agreed! (spoiler alert) There are still times I won't watch it because I know it will haunt me for awhile. I might not vote for it, but it is certainly scary to me. It creeps up on you, then when she is fully possessed, it is awful to imagine. - Ned964
The best movie ever I couldn't sleep for many days and I always feel scared while sleeping a master piece
I've never watched the movie but the I heard that cast members died on the set and the cover already scares the hell out of me.V 471 Comments
Its not that its scary its just that the storyline is great and has amazing actors. I also found it kind of funny.
Bro. BRO. This is the top ten SCARIEST movies of all time. Saying "It's not that it's scary" means IT SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ON THE LIST. (haven't watched it myself by the way) - Top10Turbulance
The only horror movie that scared me, its horrible. And I've seen a lot of horror movies
I had watched this movie.. And my review would be that it is not at all scary from horror movie point of view.. Can't forget this line "COME PLAY WITH US FOREVER... AND EVER.. AND EVER."! - avanish95
Oh god both the book and the movie are scary.
MUMBER 1 TO MEV 165 Comments
I watched this as a kid and I can honestly say this frightened all the fright out of me. No movie has scared me ever since, none! Not a single other one on this list. Honest truth, really some might be gross, some make you jump but A Nightmare on Elm Street is the be-all and end-all
The birth of being afraid to fall asleep. A Nightmare on Elm Street attacks you from all directions. What ever you do... Don't fall asleep.
Great movie, has really stood the test of time and is as good now as it ever was. 1,2 Freddy's Coming for you. - iTragik
This might have been the worst made movie ever made. The story made no sense and it wasn't even scary.V 110 Comments
I have a reoccurring dream that I'm being chased and can't get away. The scenery changes. Sometimes I'm in a big mansion, sometimes the woods. But it's always Michael myers who is chasing me. That's saying something.
I watch scary movies because they are fun; they just don't scare me. Then I watched Halloween. After the movie ended, I went to the bathroom and checked my shower... Four times!
Awesome! That was a very scary movie I first scary movie I ever saw!. I saw it at my friend's house when I was only 6 years old. And trust me it's not my last!
For a 1978 movie, it was scary as hell! The way Carpenter used camera angles, long lens shots, wide shots and shadows had never seen before. It felt very realistic because crazy people like Michael, can have super strength and be unfazed by pain. When he disappeared at the end of the movie, it freaked me out for two weeks. Also, Friday 4: The Final Chapter needs some love, it’s the darkest, best directed of the series.V 114 Comments
To be honest, I couldn't sleep in my room by myself for years.
And this is from watching the trailer
But I was also really young at the time
Stupid but scary it kept me hanging on the edge of my seat but the original was better
This was just shockingly scary, found it hard to sleep for weeks. Not one to watch alone!
A horror-thriller that's actually terrifiying. Best horror film ever made. Carrie is also great. - Cookiecutter26V 253 Comments
So Scary! My PArents won't let me see it again
Shag shag shag Friday the 13th was good but really scary
"this is jason and today is his birthday" awesome movie but the remake is better
Jason Voorhees is my favorite horror movie character and the movie is pretty interesting it goes with the original idea of people killing others in the woods it's a pretty good movie and a good amount of gore and some funny moments toV 50 Comments
The scariest movie EVER. PERIOD. Taking all the other international movies into the reckoning, this takes the cake ttobe the scariest. By far!
I seen this and no lie it gave me a panic attack I swear this had to be the best movie I've seen in years
The conjuring is The Grudge, The Exorcist combined! So horrifying!
True story tooV 274 Comments
Scary isn't the word I would use.
It was eerie and demon possessed
When it was over, I felt the evil in my house!
Turned gospel music on, LOUD and read my Bible to get rid of the demon spirits!
I am very serious too!
Scary... Is that the word to describe this movie. I was all over laughing during watching this movie. - appindia
I really LOVE this movie. Samara is a little cute bastard and Rachel is a wonderful character. I sing all the day the Samara's Song:
Round we go,
The world is spinning,
When it stops,
It just beginning.
Sun comes up,
We live and we cry,
Sun comes down
And then we all die.
Very atmospheric from start to finish which puts the viewer in a jumpy frame of mind for the finale. I just about pissed myself at the end...
It was awesome I can do what that girl do when she come out the T.V.V 143 Comments
Definitely a movie to see if you like scary movies! A lot of scary movies don't make me jump... But this one made me jump several times. Just with loud noises and pop-ups. If you like scary movies. SEE INSIDIOUS
I don't know why this movie isn't even in the top 3 at least. This movie seriously freaked me out. I actually have a scar on my arm from hurting myself in an attempt to run from the T.V.. - lolabannana89
This supposed to be next to the exorcist come on this movie make me dream scary dreams for weeks and the scene where the girl that have a wedding suit cannot get out of my mind and this movie were the boy I mean the child sees his body lying I dream of my body lying on my bed but its just a dream not a nightmare... Thanks for the alarm I'm awake
I got so scared watching this that I didn't want too go sleep for ages even when I knew I would be ok and plus it has a great story too it so that makes it a good film in generalV 122 Comments
I hate clowns, my friends thought we should watch it so we did, now I have the biggest phobia ever! Can't walk near open drains either...
Boy I hate clowns. And those weird yellow teeth and disgusting long fingernails just disgusted and scared the hell out of me.
SAW THIS AS A KID MAYBE AROUND AGE 6 AND I'm NOW MUCH OLDER AND TERRIFIED OF CLOWNS! Can't DECIDE BETWEEN "IT" AND "THE EXORCIST" BUT BOTH ARE MUST SEES AND KICK ASS!
This isn’t that scary. Tim Curry does awesome, but the “scary” parts haven’t aged well. Plus, the 2nd half sucks of this movie.V 209 Comments
Any movie that still unsettles me every time I hear a noise when taking a shower has to be the scariest movie ever. What an impact, even more than 40 years later.
Very scary indeed. This movie's shower scene is so famous all the way up until now, and will most likely continue to be!
Well this is now why I shower with people in the house, and I have my music playing so I don't have to feel so terrified. But NOES is a little scarier. Maybe about 10 times. Because what's worse than the fear of sleep? YOU CAN'T AVOID IT
But yeah, this is also really scary.

Personal all time favorite of mine, well not just the first movie, but the entire series all together. I make it a habit to marathon the entire series at least twice a year with a few of my girlfriends. Although as the movies went on, I got tired of hoffman's stupidity, but I always loved amanda's ingenuity and strength.
As I write my opinion on this movie I get the chills. I see flashbacks of the first time watching it in the dark in 4th grade. I remember the sleepless nights and the tears. I dreaded the night time. I watched the movie again when I got older thinking I'd get over it but I didn't. Just looking at the cover if the disc scares me. Every time I look at the T.V. in my living room I imagine jigsaws face popping up. This movie really makes me want to be a better person just so I don't ever have to be in that predicament. This should be number one and I'd like everyone reading this to vote for this. Thank you
The way the story is set up especially in the first 3 films..!
My favorite was SAW II because the ending surprised me that I said what just happened.. Overall AWESOME Movie..!
Honestly, this is funny to me!V 114 Comments
I loved the low-budget realism. All the special effects and cgi in today's horror flicks detract from the horror in my opinion. I actually felt the terror of the main characters and wanted to escape when I watched this because the realism felt like a glimpse into real life insanity that exists in the world. Also, I heard it was based on real events, but now know it was all just a made up story
Ha Ha, so we meet again, I've seen all of these Texas Chainsaw Massacre films and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) is definitely the scariest of them all! Very gripping and scared my grandma to bits! Based on a true story too guys, so watch at your own risk and NEVER GOING TO Texas OR AMERICA AT ALL!
This movie is terrifying but the only thing I never really got was the Guy running with a big heavy chainsaw and the victim never being able to escape. Come on you can't run THAT fast with A big heavy duty chainsaw weighing you down. Other than that A Brilliant Creepy Horror film.
Yes, I think as we get older, reasoning helps us understand that some things simply cannot happen. Next, you will discover another scene that is implausible, and so on... when we are young, we accept much more as it's all we know at the time. I personally would never let young children watch any of these movies because it might frighten them too much - Ned964
Oh god this movie traumatised me... and then I found out they used real human remains... - InsertCleverNameV 48 Comments
This was the hell of all scary movies. I like watching horror movies so that I can sit and laugh at the children. But this time it was reversed. I slept with my bed light on for more than two weeks. Letting my obese dog sleep between my feet that if something grabbed me his going to struggle.
This was the first horror movie that actually scared me. I don't find little girls, clowns, or maniacal killers that scary they're a bit cliche now. But this movie struck a chord of the fear of the unseen, what demons come out at night. Is that weird bump in the night just the house adjusting or was it something. I remember I was a freshman in college when I watched the first one. I did not get any sleep that night and I had nightmares when I did. Even the first case of sleep paralysis was after that movie. The second time I had sleep paralysis I felt a presence and saw a shadowy figure looming over my bed. I heard someone ask me my name, I refused and told it to leave. I broke free finally and I prayed on it. I haven't experienced the nightmares ever since. I know that it's normal symptoms but I believe in God and I'm terrified of demons. This movie brought those fears out of me so I'm not surprised I had bad nightmares. But I do thank God he answered my prayers, no demon related ...more
I don't scare easily, but this did it for me. The Exorcist has nothing on this film!
COME ON NOW! See the climax was average. Rest of the movie was crap! - VictoryboyV 138 Comments
This movie was perfect, honestly. It wasn't scary, but it had its moments that were... Odd. I'm a huge Hannibal The Cannibal fan, and loved all three movies. It's quite realistic as well and Jodie Foster was an amazing Clarice.
Most scary movie I have ever seen. The dialogue and images go deep into your psyche. The worst was I first saw this movie when it came out. My best friend and I went together. We came home from it and to go to her house we had to go through a dark alley and through her mom's closed store. We were terrified to be out in the dark after that film!
This movie wouldn't be one to call 'Scary' although it does have a few parts in the movie that might frighten you but the movie is actually a Psychological Thriller. These types of movies are ones that make you think constantly to find out how this happened and who that person is. I watch a lot more psychological thrillers over 'Horror' movies because I can't do lots and lots of gore like in Saw or in Scream, it seems like all modern day horror movies has to have someone's guts being spilled out for the movie to actually have plot. I swear older movies were the better ones no matter how crappy the quality is or how fake it looks, they still are better than today's movies. - KaBoomOmfgXD
Uh, can't explainV 32 Comments
Yes, I agree that this is a brilliant film, the best sci-fi film ever made... But it is in no way even the slightest bit scary. I suppose it could have been back when it first came out though...
Yeah, beside the fact that Ridley Scott's movie is a Sci-Fi masterpiece and one of the best from all time, it was scary because we didn't know what to expect from the unexpected creature called ALIEN - MatrixGuy
The overwhelming sense of dread throughout this movie has rarely been equaled. The alien is still being copied and of course, Sigourney Weaver.
It's slightly scary but I wouldn't count it as a horror film, sci-fi wins - SwiftdawnV 32 Comments
Alongside of Halloween, this is my other all-time favorite horror series. Much like Halloween did in its time, Scream completely re-energized the horror genre which had grown stagnant and paved the way for a whole new generation of scary movies. So well-written, and with characters that are actually well-developed. When you actually feel emotion when the characters are in danger, you know you've got a good one.
Can someone explain to me why Insidious and The Conjuring are higher than Scream, a classic that almost made me pee my pants. This is one of my all time favourite horror movies. The acting was good, the plot was so good, you could never guess what was going to happen, and there was actual character development. On top of that, it had the main quality people look for in horror movies, it was actually scary! I know, it's rare, but sometimes horror movies are actually scary. Insidious and especially The Conjuring sucked.
This should at least be in the top 10! This movie changed the status of horror movies in the 90's, when the genre was going downhill. I can't believe Insidious and Wrong Turn are ahead of this. - MarilynMansonFan
This movie is more comedy to me than horror - missyweirdoV 35 Comments
Had to vote for this one. Can't believe this is so low in the list. This scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid. A parasitic shape shifting alien that can mimic anything that comes into contact with it. Some of the best practical special effects ever, the spider head and the guy getting his arms bit off by someone's torso and the dog sprouting tentacles, it truly is disturbing. Add to that the paranoia and Arctic location and john Carpenter's mad music and direction of a top cast including Kurt Russell at the top of his game, The thing is scary it's the stuff of nightmares.
That's a pretty good summarization. I think, for me, the Antarctic local was a big part of it, cold and nowhere to go, both for the Thing and the crew. Add in they only know who is the Thing and who isn't for a very brief time, and the tension runs really high. - Ned964
A monster, that turns dogs inside out and you don't even know it's their till its about to kill you, is really creepy(and awesome at the same time - Razor79
The original is just amazing, the suspense and thrill created is just terrifying. How it is not in the top 5 astounds me! The exorcist just made me laugh, alien is pretty darn scary and so is paranormal activity. This film is just psychologically horrible. Watch in the dark alone "i'm outta here" - LukeB
The gore was a side effect compared to the claustrophobic horror of not knowing if the person next to you is a friend helping you or a twisted being bent on survival no matter the costs is a terrifying concept.V 43 Comments
I first watched this movie when I was about 12.. and I'm now 25 and iam still scared to anything bigger than a swimming pool.. those DAMN sharks...
Come on people. Of course, some movies right now are pretty thrilling, but Jaws was the movie that got millions of people out of the water. With that reaction, how can it not be in the top ten
How is Jaws not in the top ten? In 1977? 78? This movie FREAKED PEOPLE OUT, single-handedly made shark hunting PC, and also kept a nation of people out of the ocean AND LAKES for three years... - corebare32

Okay well I am voting for this movie because it like RUINED me I was 8 and watched all 3 in one night... Worst idea EVER because you know the kid he goes after... Andy... YEAH that's MY NAME TOO! I was scared SO MUCH that I had to sleep with my mom... No joke I will never ever watch this movie again
This movie was scary to me because I was about 5 when I saw it on T.V.. Every Halloween since I wouldn't turn it on AMC or SYFY because he scared me to much. I wouldn't even go to our town mall because he was there. In my opinion I think this is the worst and scariest movie period!
I voted for this movie because when I was about 8 or 9 I was TRAUMATISED by it. I couldn't sleep alone so I had to sleep with my dad. I'm now 16 and I watched it and laughed at it because Chucky is HILARIOUS in that movie. I used to be scared but I now see it as a horror comedy more than anything. It's my number 1 favorite. - Celmore
I watched it with my older brother when I was nine and I thought it would be about like you need to play a children's game to save a princess or something.. BOY WAS I WRONG! This is by far the scariest thing ever! I will never go near dolls again - SwiftdawnV 38 Comments
This is easily one of the most scariest horror films made. The acting is brilliant the story is great and there are some really shocking moments in it. I would recommend it to any horror fan out there or anyone who wants the living hell scared out of them laugh out loud. I've got all 3 films of the series and would definitely suggest watching the 2nd (REC) as well as I believe it's even better, the 3rd one is not quite as good but still very entertaining!
I think the only reason it's not higher is because of subtitles.
So... Paranormal Activity, Human Centipede and Predator made the list, but (REC), the scariest, most chilling movie ever made didn;t pass the cut? Well, that's as terrifying as (REC) itself. This will leave you crying, screaming, and it will definitely give you nightmares. Paranormal has nothing on this and never will
Watch this at night by yourself or with a scary movie connoisseur, and you will see why this Spanish horror fil is the scariest horror film there is. Quarantine is the american remake of this movie. More scary than 28 days later, Exorcist, or Dawn of the dead, this zombie-movie epic will leave you shaken up and curled up under a blanket.
I HAVE OVER 500 HORROR MOVIES. I'm A HORROR FAN. REC IS THE SCARIEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME! TRUST ME!V 8 Comments
most disturbing movie i have ever seen
Yes, atlast a pretty decent list! lol..
i was choosing between this and Amitvyle, well this movie scared me more.. phew! - mesh13
True it is disturbing and quite violent. Its also a true story in the 196070s US government nuked New Mexico's state and caused radiation and radioactivity which turned everyone in miles away into mutated creatures and if you go there now you might actually see on of there mines which were used in the 18 hundreds before they got walled in. Years ago one of the survivors got tokd not to mention any thing about it because it was true but when one of them got interviewed they accidently told the reporters what happened so they could tell people and they would all panic so they got exucuted with out a trace and all the evidence disappeared and this is a true story!
This is a fun gory good time but not too scary but love it. - utahman1971V 17 Comments
One of the best horror's out there, not to be mistaken with many remakes. Very simple concept but excellent delivery... a definite must watch.
Very brutal and disturbing, will keep you up at night for sure.
I've seen the new version made in 2012 or 2013. I never saw the first one but I really liked the second / newer version. I would recommend to watch this movie
Ahhh,one of the scariest movies I've watched.watched this with my girlfriend and we are still scared to even think about it!V 12 Comments
I watched it for the very first time with my friends and god it left me speechless! I couldn't sleep for weeks afraid of being alone
Was based on a true story - Revan
How is this one not in the top 10 at least?! The original was scarier than the remake! Different things scare people in different ways I guess. This would be a tough top 10 list to compile, but Amityville Horror definitely deserves to be up there.
It can’t be scary if it has horror in its name.. right?
(kill me now)
I watched this with my brothers friends and him we didn't get half way through the movie I am now afraid of cabins
One of the jumpiest, goriest, creepiest and most outrageous movies of all time. A fun gore fest with no breaks.
Watch it and you'll have nightmares for a week
Exploitation horror at it's finest! - HysteriXxDV 17 Comments
Best horror movie ever seen. With about $20 000 budget it makes such an impression, and despite there is actually nothing shown (no monsters, zombies, ghost and so on) it's one of the scariest movies I have ever seen.
If you don't think so, try to watch this inside tent in some woods at night
the eventual and thrilling subtleties in this movie really got to me. I have never really been afraid of movies, none of them really scared me, but this did it for me. thank you! - QuarantineGames
It's hard to put in words what made this movie so scary. The shaky realism of the filming, the unnerving realism of the actors' performances, the fact that you never see the monster, but it's presence is still there and it really creeps you out with the creepy things it does to torment the characters.
Just please don't get it confused with lionsgates version of it - ikerevievsV 15 Comments
Such a scary movie! I barely couldn't believe what I Saw. I really feel sorry for the children. On the way home, I still remembered what happen and even had a nightmare that I was one of the children but I would want to watch this movie again. It was so emotion. Decent movie YES! YES! YES!
I've seen everything! For sure! I love horror movies, THIS is the scariest movie ever! I've seen every movie above and NON of them is as scary as The Woman in Black... The first time I watched that movie, I was very tired and at the middle of the movie I couldn't sleep anymore... After the movie I was scared by every single sound and afraid of being in dark rooms.
I have watched the Omen
Trilogy, The Exorcist, The Devil, Grim Reaper, and The Woman In Black is a hell of a lot scarier than both of them together multiplied by 15.
Not even that scary lmao - missyweirdoV 23 Comments
Not the scariest or bloodiest of all
But very scary and on top of that, one of the greatest, if not the greatest story for a horror movie - 13thmistral
Here is one that is actually scary, and the ending was bomb
Oh come on! This has to be one of the scariest movies I've ever seen!
Scary but not the scariest. Not much of a difference between the PG-13 and Unrated one. - utahman1971V 17 Comments
First and last scary movie I saw as kid... still know what happens in front of the mirror, never been more scared after that in my life!
The only horror movie that really scares me beyond my comfort zone (and I've seen many). The Candyman character is creepy as hell and I find the overall vibe of the film disturbing. I will only watch this during daylight hours...
terrified me when i was a kid!
In this movie you just can't help but to feel sorry for the candyman cause of everything that happened to him - cadespencerV 2 Comments
Major scary movie while one stranger is messing with the chick the other two are doing something in her house while she's distracted they have her every move planned must see scary movie never wanna be home alone again. Still have nightmares and saw it 5 months ago
I really do like movies where somebody is attacked without much of a reason by complete strangers ( Funny Games, The Hills Have Eyes, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, etc. ) - which is, basically, all this movie is. Like those I mentioned except... Amplified. They even state that they had no reason for torturing them, except for of course, "because you were home. " It was brilliant.
I've seen it three times.. I've shat myself three times
This was not scary at all but gory and fun for that reason alone. - utahman1971V 12 Comments
SPOILER: this Movie Is the best movie EVER such romance such action such horror london taken down in 18 days and a surviver walking up 28 days from the outbreak Imagine what would happen in amercia or germany or africia the world woul be true hell
Very scary. rolling stone: "Visionary & Scary"
daily news: "One of the bScariest Horror Films in Years. movie came out:2005
haled as the most frightening film since the Exorcist. trust me it is & I am a expert on horror films.
This did not scare me at all. - utahman1971V 4 Comments
This one should be at least a number 2 or higher. This scares me more than The Exorcist. Mostly in the dark with evolved killers that don't see but hear and attack in the caves, has to be considered the scariest. - utahman1971
This is the only horror (so far) that has ever had me sitting there paralysed on viewing the screen. Not that suspenseful, but rather jump scares and seriously intense moments that really scare you!
As a person who isn't really scared of horror movies (Exorcist was a breeze), THIS IS THE ONE MOVIE THAT SCARED ME. THIS MOVIE SCARED ME SO MUCH.
This movie is way underrated in my opinion my first time seeing this in the movie theater had me jumping out my seat. One of the best scary films in the 2000's era BY FAR! - undereightedV 14 Comments
I personally found this film VERY SCARY. As a believer in God, I do believe that Demonic Possession could happen to somebody. In this case The Exorcism of Emily Rose was based on the true story Anneliese Michael. A tragic, awful story of A girl diagnosed with Epilepsy and Schizophrenia who was REALLY possessed by Demons. I'm not going to get into a dispute about whether she was mentally ill or indeed possessed you'll have to do some research about it, like I did and I came to the conclusion that she was demonically possessed. But the fact this horror film was based on the true story of Anneliese Michael, is what gives it such A scary edge.
I've seen a lot of horror movies and The Exorcism of Emily Rose scared me the most. I still remember myself waking up at 3:00am really freaks me out!
S C A RY! ! !
This should be number 1 by far the scariest movie I've ever seen should be at the top of the list.
I haven't seen this yet. But my daughter tells me it's very good and creepy. She has good taste in movies so I better check it out - Ned964
Although this movie is super good, it's somewhat unrealistic. like how on earth could mary be that limited in her choices to say that either emily goes to heaven and dies, or shes stays like that and dies. mary doesn't do that. - DCprincess_29V 34 Comments
When this movie came out I saw it at only 12 years old. My parents did not know what I was going to see and I looked older than 12. It scared the s*** out of me and is still creepy all these years later. It truly is awful and actually very mean because the last man standing should have lived. It was horrible and should only have been shown with a warning about its bad nature.
My sister made me watch this with her when I was 7 and now I can never watch it again. With the combination of the time and setting along with being black and white justs gives me chills!
I could really get creeped out walking in the dark after I watched that film.
This never scared me and I love zombie movies but anything after this is better zombie movie. - utahman1971V 6 Comments
Maybe the best zombie film ever - I walked downtown after watching it and shat myself several times
Great action, good story, great characters, some nice social satire, and plenty of good kills. Great zombie action flick, and the one remake I actually consider worthy of being the original classic's offspring.
This is better than Night of the Living Dead. - utahman1971
Zack Snyder's only good movie.
The most thrilling Saw. Full of action packed energy and scary scenes
I love all the Saw movies but this was my favorite with the brain scene. - utahman1971
Freakiest film ever
jigsaws coming for you...
This is definitely the scariest out of the 5, but the first is the best! Can't wait for Saw V to hit cinemas, and Saw VI next year! - nick_is_horror
I like realistic horror movies that all. - lintel4
Its cool and creepy because it could happen
This is a true horror movie. The music is very scary, especially in the tricycle scene. AND COME ON PEOPLE, THE EXORCIST? I watched it with my friend and we didn't find it scary at all and it was actually funny. My best friend has seen it too and he thinks the same. The Grudge is good though.
This got to me at my younger age but not that scary now. - utahman1971V 22 Comments
Enjoyable but not scary. A favorite. - utahman1971
This movie scared the living daylights out of me! Had nightmares for about 2 weeks!
The ultimate revenge story.
This should be number 1 then no.2 the grudge then no.3. The shining - Cookiecutter26V 4 Comments
Actually this is the scariest Movie I've ever seen, with "The Conjuring" being a Close second. The atmosphere, the demon, the tapes, the build up etc. Was perfect to get you scared. It was not as predictable as other scary Movies and the ending actually did surprise me. But this should be in the top ten at least if The Conjuring is there.
PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS It's SO UNDERRATED. And surprisingly low on the list. If you want to be scared out of your mind and have a hard time sleeping, watch it. Creative use of empty-dark space and lighting, creative camera angles, and the music, oh god. The music. It all just gets under your skin.
I honestly can't believe this movie is so low here! I expected it to be at least in the top 10! It scared the hell out of me, I can't even watch the trailer without getting scared. I honestly thought it was a hundred times better than the conjuring! This is so underrated!
Scariest movie i’ve ever seen in a LONG TimeV 28 Comments
Under the arc of a weather stain boards,
Ancient goblins, and warlords,
Come out of the ground, not making a sound,
The smell of death is all around,
And the night when the cold wind blows, No one cares, nobody knows.
I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
Follow Victor to the sacred place,
This ain't a dream, I can't escape,
Molars and fangs, the clicking of bones,
Spirits moaning among the tombstones,
And the night, when the moon is bright,
Someone cries, something ain't right.
The moon is full, the air is still,
All of a sudden I feel a chill,
Victor is grinning, flesh rotting away,
Skeletons dance, I curse this day,
And the night when the wolves cry out,
Listen close and you can hear me shout.
I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don't want to live my life again.
It's easy to see through "scary" movies to the jump-scares and horror cliches. But this story is truly horrifying. It deals with emotional devastation in a tense, spooky, supernatural setting. What is lost in the end is much more than the lives of shallow characters. This is scary.
I was about six years old when this movie came out. I just had to go see it with my older brother and cousins. Let's just say I watched this movie from behind the chairs. I watched it again when I was older and it still scared me.
Zelda is one of the creepiest Horror movie characters ever.V 7 Comments
This movie should be rated higher. This is the only movie I have ever seen where people ran out of the theater, and that was only half way through! Rob Zombie proved that he was indeed as twisted as his music when he brought this movie to us.
I've heard of this movie on the Big Bang Theory (when Raj watches it while his girlfriend might be a psycho) and it seems scary and gory but also a love story... - PEANUT318
It is okay and one of the better Rob Zombie movies but not that scary but more disturbing and way too much swearing than a lot of horror movies. Rob Zombie is a swearing freak. - utahman1971
Another amazing movie! Rob Zombie is a twisted man! LOVE it! I can watch his movies over and over again. If you want a twisted, creepy, hilarious movie. This is it!
Rob Zombie forever!V 1 Comment
Awesome movie, good old time kind of 80's "horror" style scary along with one of the most original story ideas for a horror movie EVER. There are plenty of great horror movies with standard themes, but nothing beats that type of really creative, original, NEW, storylines (like 28 days later, Hellraiser, Midnight Meat Train) that you've never seen before. It's just so refreshing, that even the fact that a movie does have a really original idea can make even a mediocre movie something much better!
This one was messed up, creepy, and psychotic. A villain that keeps coming and there is nothing you can do to stop him except hope he takes someone else.
Not a very good movie but I loved the "pipe scene" when the guy looks at all the corpses above him.
So scary. Like I almost peed myself.V 12 Comments
Yuck it's so brutal
Much scarier than the exorcist and much gorier than the saw and final destination 2 - hamidabuat
Love all of them they surprise me every time in a spooky way
Another favorite of mine and very entertaining as the others in the series. - utahman1971
All the Final Destinations are so funny! - kaisietooV 4 Comments
Most terrifying movie ever made in my opinion! The only one to ever give me nightmares! The part that really messed me up was the last scene with those rotting corpses and those Caskets! I don't get scared in horror film that much but this one did it to me! It's the only one that I dread!
This movie shattered my youth. It wasn't about gore; it was about scary psychological manipulation. The real-life trail of hauntings, curses and deaths that followed everyone who worked on the film helps, too.
Is this movie really that low?! Poltergeist is super scary!
Must be in the top 10!
This was the second fantasy sci-fi film that Tobe Hooper had done. In cooperation with Steven Spielberg who was the executive producer Tobe had free reign when it came to scaring people. Like the first Texas Chainsaw massacre in the seventies, which Tobe had directed he wanted to veer into new realms. It helped because Steven needed his vision to come to reality using outside forces like ghost hunters, and of course a conduit such as Heather O' Roark who played the little girl in the film. Sadly she died a few years at a very young age from some very complicating health issues. Still with poltergeist in Tobe's back pocket he went on to direct a campy sci-fi film called Lifeforce, which did not get very good reviews. Directors come and go but there are few films that leave lasting impressions with audiences world wide. Tobe Hooper will be remembered because he set up the bar to what would be soon later be called reality T.V. shows that people watch now using ghosts, or paranormal ...moreV 17 Comments
What was once trapped.
Will now be unleashed.
This is as scary as it can get...
Nope not scary but laughable. - utahman1971
This scared me so bad, when I was watching it, I couldn't MOVE at all during the commercials, and my sister was asleep next to me! I've never been so scared of a movie in my life! - Splashstorm
WATCXHED IT AWESOME. THEY ran away from ugly dudes who wanted to kill 'em. house was nasty, too. awesome. I haveit by the way. want to buy wrong turn 2. it should be even better than this one. - RDK1
THIS WEEK I HAD NOTHING BETTER TO DO SO I DECIDED TO WATCH WRONG TURN ALL 4 PARTS WITH MY SISTER SHE SAID OK. I thought it was going to be boring BUT I was wrong.
IT WAS THE BEST SCARY MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN
BUT MY FAVORITE PARTS ARE 2 AND 4
YOU GOTTA WATCH EM
My favorite is always the first one, it was such a new kind of horror for me. The other parts not so much!V 14 Comments
I don't see my mom the same way anymore she can't be alone with me anymore cause of that movie and my closet had to go I took every thing out of my closet and I check it every day in the morning in the afternoon and at night its crazy.
I still can't look at a wall the same
The number one scary movie that I watched when I first saw it. After watching it a few times, it still makes me jump.
No another PG-13 claimed horror that really is just jump scares that do not scare. - utahman1971V 8 Comments
I borrowed some movies and saw one called the human centipede I asked my brother and my dad what it was and recieved looks of shock fear and disgust but they said its f-ed up so I watched it and...
yeah scary because I read it is all 100 medically correct and this insane crap could actually happen I think its fairly new and I would not recomend watching this mentally scarring f-ed up movie - sillywalks
If you think the first one is scary the second one makes it look like nothing. They are both the scariest most twisted movies I've ever seen. What makes the first one so scary is the fact that its 100 % medically accurate and it is possible n could happen. Also, the way the people in the movie are humiliated is horrible and you can't get nemore humiliated than that. These movies gave me nightmares and has kinda thrown me off since watching them recently
I haven't seen it. It is the first movie ever since I was born that I don't even have to watch trailer, just its plot that creep me out and made me unable to eat comfortably for weeks! Don't forget that I didn't have to watch it to vote for it - elletequila
Watch 1 Priest 1 Nun/Church Of Fudge it's worse and they both take place in Germany.V 18 Comments
Ill beat that little dude up he not that scary to me matter fact he not scary I don't see how people are scared of him they made some dumb movies back in the days I have a chucky doll and he sleeps right on my dresser and I wake up every day just fine chucky is a funny movie to me.
This doll is so scary he throws nails in people's faces he is a serial killer. In addition the film leads you feeling more scared of what chucky could do than what he has done so far; therefore a thriller all the way through.
Alright, I can deal with every other movie except for this one. I'm serious. Even The Exorcist. But I have the worst fear of Ventriloquist Dummies, it's not even funny.
