83 The Descent The Descent

I wouldn't say it's the scariest, as I give that to (orig) Shutter, but this horror film has a great opening Jump Scare and a great atmosphere that makes you uncomfortable for the majority of the film, as well as revolting moments and terrifying mutants. It is also extremely rare to have a nearly all female cast, and considering screenwriter professors tell their students not to write women into lead roles, because men wont watch it, this film really surpassed expectations as a horror gem. My only gripe is the alternative ending that was adopted after the theatrical release--- I don't know they they do such things when the ending was great as is, and necessary to the sequel.

Holy hell! I haven't really, truly screamed in a movie other than this for as long as I can remember.... - heather

84 Hellraiser 2 Hellraiser 2

Hellraiser and Hellraiser 2 are just so great! They're unlike anything you've ever seen. Point in fact, they are so strange compared to most other horror films, which is half the reason they're so great. Clive Barker really pulled it off!

Better than the 1st.

Clive Barker is a horror genius. Doug Bradley as Pinhead is the best villain in a horror picture ever.

This and Hellraiser 1 should be on top 10

85 The Cabin In The Woods The Cabin In The Woods

This is one of the greatest of all time. I can't begin to describe how awesome this movie is! - MRJ12744

Considering this movie actually was considered good by movie critics who only dis horror movies, I'd say this movie is definitely one of the best - u_maddox_bro

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

87 The Human Centipede The Human Centipede

The final scene is what makes this movie the ultimate horror. I'm not gonna spoil it for you though.

This movie isn't really scary, it's just weird. And the poop scene is just gross!

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.

93 Nosferatu Nosferatu

Actually it's not the first was called Dracula and was made in Russia in 1920 but no copy has survived. Ditto a Hungarian version in 1921. Nosferatu was made in Germany in 1922

The very first movie to feature Count Dracula.
