|Scariest Horror Movies Ever|
The Descent (2005) - The translucent-skinned humanoids resemble a creepy cross between Gollum, Spock, and Vladislaus Dracula's naked, flying-monkey devil-brides featured in Van Helsing. A descent into madness in more ways than one.
The Devil's Rejects (2005) - Sequel to House of 1000 Corpses. One of the few instances of a sequel surpassing the original. Also contains some of the best one-liners in a horror movie.
A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Many don't classify it as a true horror movie, but it's terrifying nonetheless. Kubrick's best movie? Naughty, naughty, naughty! You filthy old soomka!
Videodrome (1983) - Cronenberg horror that relates the troubles of society to television. Was he a visionary?
The Thing a.k.a John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) - This remake of the 1951 original was largely dismissed by critics and audiences when it first came out, probably because Spielberg's E.T. had just been released two weeks prior. A great example of how characters should be written in horror movies.
Quarantine (2008) - Undoubtedly, one-hour martinizers and upholstery cleaning companies around the world will make a fortune laundering soiled trousers and wet theater seats. A scene-by-scene remake of the foreign-made [REC] which was a better film, by the way.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) - The 1974 Tober Hooper version, not the 2003 version. Another film "based on" the life of real-life serial killer Ed Gein. What a popular serial killer he was!
Wait Until Dark (1967) - Yes, Audrey Hepburn can do "scary." A great example of how to leave it up to an audience to unravel the mystery themselves. Stephen King once declared this the scariest movie of all time.
Rosemary's Baby (1968) - Filmed at The Dakota building, in Manhattan's Upper West Side where John Lennon was fatally shot some twelve years later. A coincidence?
Freaks (1932) - Not so much scary as it is disturbing. Ever seen a man with no arms and no legs roll a cigarette?
