Scariest Movies of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 The Babadook

Oh my god. This should at least be in the top tens. If you want a creepy psychological horror movie this is your movie. But seriously. I had countless nightmares about the babadook

Scariest movie I ever did see. Far, far, more terrifying than Insidious.

It's a very scary movie. It's not a monster movie, it's a movie about grief and how it effects people which makes it scarier...

It may sound childish but I couldn't sleep after watching this, honestly.
This movie is incredibly underrated and deserves more credit, very well done, especially for a newer horror film.

82 Audition

Not at all what I was expecting from the first 20 minutes. This movie gets seriously twisted on a whole new level.

83 Christine (1983 Film)

Good thing this is one the list cause christine is the scariest killer car ever - cadespencer

84 Return to Horror High
85 A Tale of Two Sisters

I've heard its scary although I've not seen it.

86 La Cabina (The Telephone Box)
87 Queen of the Damned
88 Paranormal Activity 2
89 Wrong Turn 2: Dead End

Such a great sequel. And it features Ken Kirzinger(Freddy vs Jason's Jason Voorhees) as "Pa" - aeromaxx777

90 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.

91 The Uninvited

Holy crap what did I just watch. I watched The Unborn before I watched this one.

92 Burnt Offerings

The ending of the movie, where Oliver Reed realizes that his wife has become one with the house. That still freaks me out til this day.

93 The Elephant Man

This is an amazing movie but it is not a scary movie, let alone not a horror movie, it's a biographical drama. - jack2244

Putting this movie on here is actually really offensive considering how it's based on a true story about a disformed man who didn't wanna be treated like an animal. - SYLFan1234

Wasn't horror

94 Shutter Island

Watch this movie it is very well done the ending may or may not surprise you, shows the capability the human mind.

Not a horror, but a great psycho story

95 The Nightmare
96 Repulsion
97 Shutter

If we're talking about the Thai one, it's one of the best horrors I've watched. I'm not easily scared by films, but this one's got what it takes. It's also created in a very clever way, I love how everything at the beginning gives us the clues about what is happening and why. - saaar

The original Thai Shutter scared the hell out of me when I watched it on my couch. I highly recommend it. The ghost make up alone is terrifying. I'm sure it's low on this list simply because not enough people have heard of it or they assume we are talking about the remake.

Last minute = the best part of this movie, unpredictable...
This is best horror movie ever

Best Asian horror movie

Stupid American remake - phenylamine

98 An American Werewolf In London

The effects on the were wolf are some of the best I've ever seen! They should play this in theaters around Halloween so that people can see how awesome the transformation is.

Hilarious dark humor, but scared the crap outta me. Best werewolf in any movie.

"This should be number 1 for the transformation sequence alone."

That werewolf howl scares the living hell outta me

Never seen a scarier kids movie... It was amazing though!

Messed up button eyes. The dreaded I'm your mum now great stuff where is monster house another good one

I haven't seen a lot of the classic horror movies, but out of all movies I've ever seen, this gave me the most problems sleeping... Including the shining! - keycha1n

I'm not tryna be a wuss or anything but this can get pretty creepy at times. It shouldn't really be aimed at kids. - AlphaQ
