Best Horror Movies of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Its like a super scary movie I thought it was super scary I'm a big fan

I love this movie so much! It was both realistic and absolutely terrifying. Toby Hooper at his very best.

Already listed.

22 Wrong Turn

this the best horror movie I have ever seen... second and third part are awesome...

It was a very disgusting movie... Someone eating the flesh of another person is not at all scary... The starting was good enough to convince the people that the movie is full of suspense... But gradually the movie lost the public's interest!

Ugh cannibalism freaks me out BIG time! and how they look *shivers* - misskikii

23 Poltergeist

I have read so many reviews and seriously it's really very scariest and scariest movie. you can't take it really... If you really want to be scared I must say do watch it

Has the perfect amount of scary. Has you scared even when you think it's the end.

This should easily be in the top ten - happyhappyjoyjoy

The kid friendly version of The Ring.

24 Night of the Living Dead

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 Walking Dead's granddaddy! Not scary? You've got to be kidding! The innate fright is multiplied greatly due to the film being in black & white. Incredibly creepy and original! - Terrax

Not that scary but the part where the zombie girl kills and eats her own mother will freak you out

Best horror movie I ever saw

It might be good enough in 1968 but sure now it is an awful horror comedy. I mean it has not even many death scenes.

25 Child's Play

The First Time I Saw the Movie I was 11 back then. Chucky Mostly Made my 6 year old sister piss her pants. When Chucky Came To Life and said, Hi I'm Chucky Wanna Play!. My Sister Ran Out Of The Theater Screaming. She Had Nightmares That Night. She Dreamed That Chucky Would Open her bedroom door climb onto the bed and gouge out both of her eyes.

This movie is a classic. Used to scare the hell outta me when I was a little kid

I was 7 the first time I saw this movie it was very scary I still enjoyed it thou

No very scary, but still entertaining - Scr3aM

26 The Blair Witch Project

Ppl didn't get this movie that's why they hated it, The reason why they filmed scenes like them in the Shops or them havin' conversations is to make it seem real, e. g. anybody would film this stuff they filmed. And they didn't show the witch, because using your imagination is the scariest monster there is - roblist

This movie has always been the scariest movie for me because of the fact that you never really get to see the witch, but you know it's there. It amazes me how scary they made it while using pretty much three actors and virtually no special effects. The acting is so convincing I almost thought it was real, going into the forest will never be the same.

This was a horror movie which didn't need the physical presence of evil. the fear one feels is pure and the slight confusion among the characters which later becomes a conflict adds to the fear, to the chaos.The knowledge that they are being stalked and observed and the lack of it as to who or what it is that seems to be lurking in the brush subjected me to pure abject terrorThe ending is scary and confusing in the right proportions - I failed a test because of this movie - I couldn't think of anything but this story for weeks

This was really good. Those who hate don't understand.

27 Halloween II

Whilst it was never going to be as fresh as the original it is still creepy, suspenseful and offers nice closure for the first movie.

28 The Thing (1982)

Wow, Shawn13 doesn't have great taste. See No Evil and My Bloody valentine? Are you serious? They aren't remotely scary or good movies. There are some good ones like Friday The 13th and Halloween (unless they are the remakes) but this guy needs to watch better movies.

Its really awesome. The things showed thought to have set by good innovative person.

This movie is already on 9th spot. This is not the remake. - Olive855

Already 8 on the list

29 Freddy vs. Jason

OH YEAH! This is what I'm talking about. Who cares what anyone says about this movie. It is the greatest in horror crossovers. If a mortal fighting an immortal doesn't sound epic to you, then you're totally bonkers.

30 American Psycho

Another film inspired by Ed Gein.

I think it was more inspired by Ted Bundy. Or maybe both.

31 Last House On the Left (1972) V 1 Comment
32 Suspiria

Favorite movie ever! Last film shot in Technicolor

33 Orphan

This movie freaked me out so much! Oh myy the scariest part was that she was a grown woman who liked to harm people. And she was scary looking and just totally 666! I couldn't trust little girls for a month!

I saw this when I was 6...

Could not sleep for a week...

Good movie after 5 years of avoiding this movie

I did not feel scared but this movie was awesome one of the best movies I have ever watched.

I saw this movie and I couldn't sleep for a month.

34 Carrie

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!

Actually this movie was a mediocre for me, well it may seem OK, but this wasn't scary at all. Anyway, this movie wasn't so bad, at least it's emotional & well made. - Fan_of_Good_Music

35 An American Werewolf in London

This film had me jumping with fright! Not to mention rick baker's amazing transformation.

It is a genuinely scary movie, the transformation scene is yet to be bettered, a complete story

Have you ever tried talking to a corpse? It's boring. - AwesomeJ1800

Equally strong in being both a memorable horror and a memorable comedy. - BKAllmighty

36 Insidious

When it comes to the old school horror movies like the Exorcist and The Shining, I was never really scared by them but rather intrigued and thrilled by the development. They weren't movies that actually had a major effect on me as far as paranoia. This movie, however, really screwed me up. After watching it, I had a hard time sleeping for the night. Insidious I not only scary, but I gives off that frightening atmosphere that there is something in your home that's about to jump at you in any minute. Any horror film that puts that kind of effect on someone is what really makes it successful, in my opinion. - Mcgillacuddy

I have seen almost every movie on this list, I don't scare easy but this movie almost made me piss myself like 12 different times. Left me lying in bed staring at the door making sure nothing was coming in.

Y is this movie so down below in the list... And look at the movies which r on the top... Is this a list of top horror movies or what? What's wrong with people they r voting for saw... COME ON

Haven't been this scared since watching poltergeist... when I was 10.. I'm 27

37 The Sixth Sense

i see dead people...all the time

Good movie with a twist some people can communicate with the dead whether they want to or not God decides

Brought back ghost movies. The Others stole the twist and Paranorman stole the whole concept

Good movie. Watch it when I was like seven - Scr3aM

38 The Evil Dead

This is my favourite movie of all time! This movie proves that you don't need a big budget to make a good movie! I didn't see the new one but it defiantly can't beat the original classic!

This movie deserve number 1, this movie made me watch & collect horror movies to my movies collection. I strongly believe this movie is the mother of almost "block buster" horror movies.

Bruce Campbell is awesome, best horror film of all time, watch it!

36 years old movie, people still are afraid to watch it. Rated NC-17 on IMDB. Mostly because of gore. - zxm

39 Rosemary's Baby

This is the best horror movie ever, smart, scary and bizarre at the same time, I hate those people who thinks this movie is boring and cg movies are good.

It's the best horror movie of all time along with the exorcist.

It was a total waste of time. No on-screen deaths, no scary faces, no jump scares. Why all say that it was so good?

Does anyone see pac man on the poster...?

40 The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Just watching this movie makes me shiver to my spine... The storyline was creepy and the acting of everyone was amazing. Still remember I was alone and there were 20 to 30 people in the theatre and after watching the movie when I was walking I kept on looking back to check if anyone was following me...

This movie by far is the scariest demonic possession horror movie that is based on a real story. Just the thought of having things inside of me/anyone is just plain terrifying. The even scarier thing is that the demons won and after being possessed for six years the little girl died because she could not take it anymore. Poor thing...

This should be the best movie of all time.. But to be honest not a scariest movie... But acting story was way above excellence... Nice court room drama... But should be at least deserves 2nd spot..

Very funny
