Top Ten Horror Movies of All Time

By: Joshua Unseth-- 2010-09-15 4:00 am --

It's that time of year again. The nights are getting shorter, the wind is starting to bite, and Halloween is approaching. Nothing says tradition like settling down with a scary movie - or ten - but with Halloween only lasting a day, how should you prioritize your list of scary movies for the ultimate fright night?

10: Halloween (1978)

Of course.

9: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

It's classic for a reason - that reason being the titular nightmares that seep from the movie into your brain. The claws, the claws!

8: Shutter (2004)

This horror movie from Thailand is the ultimate experience in jumps, chills and thrills, and it gives a whole new meaning to "looking over your shoulder." For that time of night when you REALLY want to be scared.

7: Children of the Corn (1984)

It may be old and suffering from 80s special effects, but Stephen King is the master, and nothing proves it like a cult of crazy kids and a cornfield.

6: Chakushin Ari (2004)

Japan has perfected the art of creepy, ghostly girls with long black hair and a score to settle. The only thing scarier? Ghost girls who trail behind you on the ceiling...

5: The Amityville Horror (1979)

Your home should be a safe place where you feel protected from things that go bump in the night. If you believe that, don't watch this movie.

4: Poltergeist (1982)

They're heeeeeeere... and you'll never sleep again! Which is a good, because you've still got a few more movies left to go.

3: It (1990)

Oh, afraid of clowns, you say? There's nothing to be scared of. They'll just slither out of the gutter drenched in blood and grinning with all their teeth. No biggie.

2: The Exorcist (1973)

Where do we even start? How about the infamous head-spinning scene? The crucifix, the shaking bed, the deep guttral voice issuing from the throat of a little girl? How about that terrifying spider-crawl down the stairs - backwards?!

1: Ringu (1998)

If you really want your kids to stop watching so much TV, this should do it.
