Scariest Movies of All Time

61 Requiem for a Dream Requiem for a Dream

I have not seen this but isn't it a drama?

2 nights ago I had a dream about the antichrist

62 The Last House on the Left The Last House on the Left

The original movie was better then the remake. It bothered me for days

Talk about one hell of a nightmare.

63 Rosemary's Baby Rosemary's Baby

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

Very gory I watched this at six I walked in in to my dads room to find a man getting a drill in his tendons

This movie gives a range of deeply negative emotions. It is not 100% scary, not 100% depressing, not 100% gross, but an awful coctail of all of the above!

Its a good movie but don't watch it.

65 The Sixth Sense The Sixth Sense

The most intelligently made movie on spirits is the Sixth Sense, loved the concept of the movie and love to watch it alone and think about myself in the place of a spirit which still lives when it is dead... So much to think and make such a simple movie like this

I felt goosebumps on my arms when I saw this movie. This can't be one of the scariest movies, but it'll surely be on the top 10 list for the best movies. The acting, the scenario, everything was perfect! - TheDarkWolf

This movie wasn't scary at all to me, like, I watched it 4 times in a row one night because it's so good. Honestly, I didn't even know that it was supposed to be scary

Very good twist

66 28 Weeks Later 28 Weeks Later

Best horror film ever made and I've watched all of the movies on "scariest films" lists, Better than 28 days later, Exorcist, Shining, Halloween, Hellraiser, the Ring, Blair Witch, any zombie movie, etc.

67 The Fourth Kind The Fourth Kind

This is not your average alien horror movie. It is based on actual films and tapes from a psychiatrist who is curing patients in Alaska with hypnosis, these patients all have the same dream of being watch by a white owl but only remember this part. When induced into hypnosis they go crazy until they snap out of it. The one person who remembers his dream goes crazy and kills his family and himself, the scary part is that though it is mainly actors the movie cuts to real clips. In the clip he says "they" are coming for him. This leads to the doctor being under house arrest because they blame her. But after continuing the investigation the doctor finds a clip of her screaming, then she remembers she was abducted too eventually this leads to the aliens trying to get her and taking her daughter, in real life her daughter is still missing and the only person who wished to be interview was the doctor who had become a terrified sickly person. Don't watch this movie no matter how ...more

This movie should be number one, not because of the storyline, but because its based on true events and has real footage and sound recordings from a number of sources including the police that show some of the most twisted scariest things ever. Now you need to think that this was the material released and allowed to be shown, so it begs the question, what hasn't been released? And if these things did truly happen, what does it mean for us humans as a species? That's the scariest part of it all. Oh yeah, and how the hell does someone get sucked up through the roof of a house and disappear from the face of the planet? So many questions, but do you really wanna know the answer?

This should be number one. After watching this I developed a phobia of white owls. This movie is based off of a real event and they show you actually footage. I was telling my friends about the movie when I first saw it and I was on the verge of tears just explaining it to them. This movie is extremely terrifying and seems to get scarrier every time I watch it. I watch the movie years ago but thinking about it makes me shake to the bone.

What a twisted movie. I LOVE scary movies! There hasn't really been one that really got to me like this one. I wouldn't even call it scary. I literally had to stop the movie and turn on all of the lights. It even gave me nightmares. It's twisted and brilliant! Kudos to everyone involved!

In this movie I REALLY hated the Jackal. Personally, I think that he was the scariest part of that whole movie. It wasn't just a gory movie it was scary.. And gave me nightmares.

This movie scared the hell out of me when I was a child. And it was my favorite until now because all of the ghosts have a shockingly deep dark story about their past - monicaaudrey

one of the best friggin movies I have ever seen ever man

It's really awesome and I only have 8 years of age I really like it 👍🏻

70 Insidious: Chapter 3 Insidious: Chapter 3

This is not scary in my opinion I think Annabelle is more scarier than this movie for real.

This is the scariest out of all the Insidious films

Not scary but some of the part is scary and shocked me. - BeaM456

Wasn't scary, but nasty as hell. - The reason for my vote is simply because it's brilliant. Couldn't agree more with a murder.

This movie is scary. John Doe gives me nightmares. And who can forget the "What's in the box"!

78 The Birds The Birds drawn out it is between horror...I can't take it! - emraldYE

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

It's not scary anymore. I'm sure that in the 60s it was terrifying. But it doesn't hold up, unlike Psycho.

79 Phone Booth Phone Booth

What isn't scary about a dude trapped in a phonebooth by a sniper in the buildings who no one can see? The sniper makes him do whatever he wants, and the scariest thing is his voice. Imagine a bone-chilling, everyday American voice, but calm and evilly saying- "hello stu. " DAMN, this jerked me for ages. I certainly ain't been in any phone booths for a while, and I intend to keep it that way, even if the nearest one is next to my best friends house! - Mushroom99

80 Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

Honestly one of the most realistic and disturbing movies I have ever seen! Truly an underrated masterpiece, and one of the most terrifying pieces of cinema I have ever seen.

This movie is very, very disturbing.. Once you see it you will never ever forget it.
