Grab the popcorn. Turn down the lights. Lock the door. Don't answer the door, and never pick up hitchhiking strangers on deserted country roads. Get ready for spine-chilling thrills with this list of the top 10 scariest movies of all time which i watched on https://fmovies.dev/. These movies are sure to get the adrenaline pumping.
This 1976 movie is based on a novel by Stephen King. I'm not sure which is scarier, the evil teens in this movie, who torment the main character Carrie, or Carrie herself, who goes on a telekinetic rampage to pay them back.
9. Children of the Corn
Rural Nebraska is scary enough all by itself, but add being chased by evil adult-sacrificing children and you've got a seriously scary mix. Because of this thriller, I still drive a little faster when passing large rural corn fields.
The 1960 original version, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, is much better than the 1998 remake. This movie helped define the horror movie industry. This movie is an effective nail-biter without the blood and gore so many more recent flicks rely upon. Not only is the infamous "shower scene" one horrifying bit of cinematography, but the main character, Norman Bates, is one freaky guy.
7. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Graphically violent for it's time (released in 1974), this movie is full of blood and gore. Any movie that involves a maniac with a chainsaw chasing young people around just for the pleasure of ripping their bodies to shreds, would have to be bloody. I do wonder if more of the victims would have gotten away were it not for their wildly flapping bellbottom trousers.
6. Friday the 13th
The 1980 Sean S. Cunningham film is one of the most profitable slasher films ever released. Friday the 13th led to a long series of sequels, some more terrifying than others. Several teens decide to re-open a summer camp years after a boy drowned in the camp's lake. One by one, the teens are picked off by a mysterious killer.
5. A Nightmare on Elm Street
Twenty years after first seeing this movie, I still wake up at night and wonder if I'm really awake or if I'm only dreaming. Is that the sound of screeching knives on metal I hear? The original is definitely the best. Freddy Krueger, the violent killer that only exists in the dream world, is frighteningly freaky in the first one. In the movie's sequels, his cheesy one-liners make him a bit of a joke.
4. The Shining
The 1980 horror film based on the book by Stephen King, is now a considered a classic. Being snowbound in a large haunted hotel is enough to drive just about anyone crazy. It certainly manages to drive main character, Jack Torrence over the edge enough to chase his wife and son around with an axe. Jack Nicholson plays Torrence in the movie. He's a very convincing psychopath.
3. The Omen
The movie's main character, Damien Thorn is actually the child of Satan and destined to be the Antichrist. This thriller manages to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat with out gobs of blood and guts. The musical score of this film is enough to make you wet your pants. Evil children are just plain scary.
A creepy blond kid hearing ghosts in the television makes for a spine-tingling movie. There have been many spoofs made from this classic thriller. The line, "They're here!" is one of the most quotable lines in movie history.
1. The Exorcist
Based on a novel by William Peter Blatty, this movie is about a twelve year-old girl possessed by a demon. Released in 1973, this movie used language and showed violence that was unusually strong for the time. The movie was so controversial that it was banned in some countries and was blamed for people fainting, being institutionalized, and even one miscarriage.
