Scariest Movies of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Insidious: Chapter 2

I will not watch this movie again alone I peed on the couch I am taking about house completely empty I was alone I did not no what I was thinking at the moment I smelled pee all through the movie GROSS JUST GROSS AND I WAS CRYING CAUSE THEY LEFT ME THEIR ALONE when they got home somebody got a beat down I know that.

The movie brings us to a different world. surely a wonderful concept and better than first part

Nope not scary and not enjoyable either. James Wan went downhill after SAW. - utahman1971

More scarier than the last - Coolgal2248

42 Poltergeist

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!

Poltergeist is a pretty scary movie and I am only 11

43 House of 1,000 Corpses

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!

44 The Omen

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. - utahman1971

45 Mama

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. - utahman1971

46 The Human Centipede

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.

47 Chucky

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.

Now this is scary this should be number 1 - Carri796

48 Wrong Turn

49 Sinister

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 can't believe how low this is on the list. This movie is way under-rated. I'm a horror movie fanatic and this is easily one of the scariest I've seen. - MissRushingTheKing

What is this one being so low for? This is scarier than all PG-13 ones listed. - utahman1971

50 The Grudge 2

What was once trapped.
Will now be unleashed.

This is as scary as it can get...

Nope not scary but laughable. - utahman1971

51 Jeepers Creepers

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.

Another favorite of mine but not too scary but love it. - utahman1971

52 The Last Exorcism

None of the exorcism movies beat The Exorcist. - utahman1971

53 Cannibal Holocaust

My friends and I decided to watch this... I was the last woman watching. (Well, basically because we were all girls.) They were all covering their eyes though, so we had to stop it. One even had nightmares about it!

Anyway, I can always revisit this saved in my desktop.

Very good disturbing movie that really is not scary but enjoyable to make you almost puke all your guts out. - utahman1971

Dude my cousin watched this and after the movie he got such a stomach ache

54 Freddy vs. Jason

Again. This movie was just great. It provided us with some actual scares, for a change, a couple of wonderful kills, and, of course, an epic clash between the two horror giants. It's a perfect blend of horror and action, just the way I likes it.

Two of my favorite killers fighting, yes please! This fight could go on forever, since neither one of them can permanently die. JASON I LOVE you!

Isn't the jason that has a hockey mask and a chainsaw or a knife? - Simon4545

Freddy Krueger haha yay *sarcasm* - Carri796

55 Final Destination 5

I watched it, not a bit scary. You just get thrilled on who is gonna die next. Awesome movie gonna vote anyway

I mean, if your sensitive to blood, like a bit squeamish, then this movie is not for you...I'm lucky I'm not one of those people. - Nick-brick8

AWE.. SOME. With a great blend of both tension and gore, this is my favorite film of the franchise.

Very entertaining, great comedy - kaisietoo

56 Final Destination

Enjoyable but not too scary. A favorite. - utahman1971

It's a great comedy movie, very enjoyable! - kaisietoo

What is scarry movy doing here... It's a comic film... Though final destination is amazing!... Just waitin for fnal destination 5...

Most scariest, horrible and disturbing movie.
Horrible and disturbing death scenes... :S
Please... Don't Watch the this movie.

57 Quarantine

What is this movie doing way down here it was a master piece! I loved every bit of it, the horror was placed accurately and I love the gore. Personally I think rec 1 & 2 were better, but for someone who wants to be walking in their own house as if an infected is around every corner the well this is the movie for you. This movie stands on the Paranormal Activity level of horror, but it brings it to you in a gory, fast, & distinct way, this ain't just a zombie survival horror...


I watched 100s of horror movies like the ring, insidious, the grudge, etc. And they are NOT scary! Quarantine and rec scaried me so much I can never watch this movie in the dark! And I think you should listen to my advice I laughed watching the ring, the grudge, insidious and etc. This is the only movie that can scare me to death!

Watched on netflix :3

Nope not that scary. - utahman1971

I blame this movie for my fear of birds, I can't be around them.

Ohh, yeah. I watched this one, too.

Awesome Movie

60 Rosemary's Baby

Don't believe the hype of this being scary. Pretty boring and nothing really happens to much but a lot of drama and wandering around town to find out only satanists are trying to take her baby but still not much happens to really scare anyone. - utahman1971

I agree. Seeing this as a child it didn't scare me all that much. I've since watched it, and have come to appreciate it's physiological aspects, but not truly scary to me - Ned964

Great movie! Slow burner for sure. The Sentinel is also really good.

The baby is the devil's son
