Reminder: the ranked list of films here is guaranteed to have you repeating to yourself, “It’s only a movie … it’s only a movie… it’s only a movie …”. Here we go! 

Blaire Witch - Scariest Movies

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

The Blair Witch Project became a horror sensation back in the 90s. The documentary-style horror movie terrified some audiences who weren’t so sure it was fiction when it came out. “The Blair Witch Project” is a reminder that what really scares us is the stuff we can’t see.

Conjouring - Scariest Movies

The Conjuring (2013)

The one that started it all. The Conjuring has produced a whole collection of sequels and spin-offs since it hit theaters in 2013. James Wan brilliantly takes us back to the historical days of horror, delivering an extremely stylistic, visually striking horror film that stands tall amongst the classics.

Don't Breathe - Scariest Movies

Don't Breathe (2016)

Three years after he made his feature-film debut with a surprisingly good Evil Dead reboot, filmmaker Fede Alvarez directed his own original addition to the horror canon. The movie becomes a battle of wills between two people who have done terrible things but justified their actions to themselves.

Babadook - Scariest Movies

The Babadook (2014)

First appearing as a demonic storybook in the home of a mourning mother and son, the haunting presence of the Babadook soon proves to be far from extraordinary. As frightening as it is beautiful, The Babadook reminds us that there’s no way to stay safe from our demons once we are aware of them.

Hush - Scariest Movies

Hush (2016)

Like Gerald’s Game, Hush has an imaginative yet simple premise. In the movie, the killer is making moves just out of the woman’s line of sight. Watching the film, you might end up screaming yourself, begging her to turn around in time. Beware & Enjoy the suspense!

Good Night Mommy - Scariest Movies

Goodnight Mommy (2014)

Sure, many children are characteristically creepy, and identical youngsters are vessels for evil pretty much without exception. Goodnight Mommy isn’t all shadowy mystery—it delivers its share of explicit, sickening violence and psychological torture.

La-Llorona - Scariest Movies

La Llorona (2019)

The past is always here, sitting right beside us, and so are its ghosts — a concept that filmmaker Jayro Bustamante brilliantly mines for slow-burning dread. It’s the kind of a tale of mystery and imagination that prefers to get under your skin and leave you with the spur of horror afterward. Its creative direction makes it one of the most scariest movies of all time.
REC- Scariest Movies

[REC] (2007)

Told entirely through a cameraman’s recordings, the movie director’s tweaked take on zombie flicks takes its time setting up the chaos, only to hit the accelerator in its final act. REC presents brilliantly staged early scare signals that are required in the beginning. Despite an unexpected, last-minute turn into the supernatural realm, the edge-of-the-seat tension is sustained to the very last second.

The Rings - Scariest Movies

The Rings (2002)

A female ghost with long, black hair, super-creepy, that’s what the spirit looked like. Quicker than you can say “urban legend,” bodies begin piling up, and an angry spirit is crawling out of a TV set. Rarely has an American remake of a foreign horror film captured the original spirit so spot on. 

It Comes At Night - Scariest Movies

It Comes at Night (2017)

Now here’s a plague nightmare for you. The scariest thing about watching this movie is a world where masks are the only tenuous security blanket you have. In the film, every other human being appears like a threat to your own health and safety… It feels like a few steps down the road from where we are now.
