|Scariest Horror Movies Ever|
The Blob (1958) - When viewed with a nostalgic attitude and with one corner of your mind thinking back of sitting in the tuck-and-roll seats of a '57 Chevy parked at the drive-in theater, The Blob will endear itself to classic sci-fi fans more and more each time it is viewed.
Drag Me to Hell (2009) - Say what you will about the cheesey title, but Sam Raimi returns to form with this delightfully funny and refreshingly scary slasher flick. Welcome back, Sam!
Ju-on (2000) - The Japanese version. Don't bother with the Sarah Michelle Gellar American remake. When someone is killed in a bout of resentment, the resulting rage accumulates in the place where the dead once lived. He who comes in contact with the curse loses his life, and a new curse is born. The Japanese prefer to believe places become haunted, whereas American filmmakers think people are haunted.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) - The rare instance of a remake that's better than the original. Must... stay... awake...
28 Days Later (2002) - Danny Boyle's breakout flick is a dystopian tale that opens four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, leaving only a handful of non-infected survivors try to find sanctuary. Not a zombie movie... they're not zombies... don't call them zombies.
The Mist (2007) - From a Stephen King Story. Hard to recall an ending to a movie causing such polarization of viewers. Say what you will about it, they couldn't have ended it in any other way.
I Walked With a Zombie (1943) - Made in 1943, this Val Lewton production, directed by Jacques Tourneur, features disturbing atmosphere that sees its female stars, Christine Gordon and Frances Dee, taking a long and lonely walk through some haunting fields of sugar cane.
The Wicker Man (1973) - A creepy-crawly little film that, despite its myriad production problems, went on to become a cult fave and one of Great Britain's most popular horror films. Don't confuse it with Nic Cage's ridiculous 2006 version. The soundtrack is equally freaky.
Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror) (1922) - Where the legend of Dracula began, with Max Schreck's Count Orlock, the phantom of the night that drinks the blood of his victims. This silent movie was the predecessor to the perhaps more easily "watchable" Bela Lugosi version of Dracula. Count Orlock also appears on our list of the Best Movie Monster and Creatures of All Time.
