Best Horror Movies of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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 is not only scary, but it 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

Insidious should be in top ten... Scariest movie in this list...

42 1408

THE BEST HORROR MOVIE IN THE WORLD! HOW IS IT IN 82? And to the second person down from me it picked 1408 because add the numbers together

1+4=5+0=5+ 8= 13

13 the most unlucky number ever. - rushrules

It was one of the best horror movies...just like some real life haunted things places, this movie was really interesting and scary

I thought about it: What would happen if my locker number was 140-? I don't even want to type the number. I can already see the little thing in my vent in my room. Holy...
But one thing... Why did he chose 140-? Why not 666? It's more original. Well, spontaneous I guess...

43 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

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!.

47 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

48 Killer Klowns from Outer Space

I really love this movie film. It's just so funny! - Scr3aM

This movie was awesome I loved it

This movie is hilarious and scary.
Second thought, the klowns were cute, especially the short, green haired clown.

49 A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors

Released on my 6th birthday so it kinda holds a special place in my heart

50 The Birds

Way better than crap like "The Hills Have Eyes" - TheGreatest

I watched this for the first time when I was still just a little kid. I'm pretty sure this was my first full-on horror film experience. I felt uneasy around seagulls and crows for weeks afterwards. - BKAllmighty

Alferd Hitchcock is a genius to make such a horrific movie. - Baltimore1993

Underrated.

51 Sinister

This movie scared the crap outta me. The plot kept me at the edge of my seat at all times. I found it really horrible the videos kept showing different methods of death but at the same time I found it really scary and interesting.

I really like horror movies and this was the one most intense one I have seen so far. This was the only one that really really scared me. Should be WAY higher in this list.

If you call yourself a horror "veteran" and movies like the ring, paranormal activity or woman in black didn't phase you. Watch this, its not so much scary as in creepily disturbing. When there is a jumpscare the initial shock does not break the suspense building up to it. Amazing movie with a solid story on a Saw II level of disturbing without being gory in the slightest.

Good movie

52 [Rec]

This is the scariest movie I've watched. I was so entranced by the movie and so shook up that it made a lasting impression on me. This is the inspiration for The Grudge many other modern horror classics, and it draws inspiration from movies like The Blair Witch Project with the shaky camera.

shaky camera work at its best and really screaming movie - pankaj1993

Amazing movie with a very realistic plot,. IT doesn't show ghosts or anyting but it has a very realistic plot that can happen anywhrer

53 Black Christmas (1974)

The imagery and cinematography in this film is brilliant. I only watched it for the first time a few months ago but I was waist deep into this movie. Strongly recommend it. It's CANADIAN also, which pleases me. - BKAllmighty

54 Eraserhead

David Lynch is the best at getting inside your mind to terrify you. Even if you are not even sure if you are scared. That is real horror. A surrealistic experience of nightmares and fear.

55 The Amityville Horror (1979)

Mad Me Scared To Sleep In A House That Looked Like That!!

By far the best horror ever produced.

I watched this movie. I was not able to sleep properly.

It's a superb movie... I loved it... it was als so much scary... but I loved it...

56 Trick 'r Treat

A horror movie more about Halloween then "Halloween" - shawnmccaul22

Extremely underrated Sam is one of my favorite characters ever

57 Last House On the Left (2009)

This is just another porn movie ha ha ha

Vulgur all the time

58 Silent Hill

Best horror picture I ever watched.. It should be at least top 5 rank. Each end every moment of the picture I really enjoyed. The ending part was very good..

Best out there ever. That is all I will say. The depth and suspense will send shivers down your spine, and also force you to think simultaneously. Just play the games.

Akira Yamaoka's masterpieces

59 Aliens

I love this movie, but it's not really a horror movie. It would fit more into the action genre.

60 Saw II
