Fear not, horror aficionados (and curious newcomers)! This list is your one-stop shop for some of the most terrifying movies ever made. Grab some popcorn, turn down the lights, and get ready to be scared…with a few typos sprinkled in for fun (hey, even horror bloggers make mistakes sometimes!).

The Exorcist (1973)

This undisputed king of horror films isn’t scary because of gore (though there is some), but because it preys on our deepest fears about faith, possession, and the vulnerability of children. This movie was so controversial when it came out that some theaters even offered barf bags!

The Shining (1980)

Jack Nicholson’s chilling performance as a writer slowly descending into madness at an isolated hotel is unforgettable. The film’s use of symbolism and unsettling imagery will stay with you long after the credits roll.

Hereditary (2018)

This unsettling film uses slow-burn dread and a sense of impending doom to truly terrify you. The story of a family unraveling after a mysterious death is psychologically disturbing and will leave you questioning everything.

Get Out (2017)

This clever and terrifying film takes social commentary and infuses it with horror to create a truly unique experience. The story of a Black man visiting his white girlfriend’s family is equal parts suspenseful and thought-provoking.

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

This found-footage film revolutionized horror by making us feel like we were right there with the characters as they became lost in the woods. The shaky camerawork and sense of realism made it feel all too real

It Follows (2014)

This slow-burn horror film uses a nightmarish concept to create a truly unsettling atmosphere. The idea of a being that can only be seen by the person it’s after is terrifyingly original.
