10 MOVIES THAT WILL SCARE YOU

A list of 10 of the scariest horror movies ever made

I love horror movies—my favorite are the kind that creep me out, make me feel uncomfortable or outright terrify me. For this list I’ve gathered movies I feel overall are most scary.

1.

Baskin

RELEASED: 2015

Baskin freaked me the hell out when I saw it for the first time. I’ve rewatched it several times since and still love it each and every time. ‘Baskin’ is a Turkish word meaning ‘police raid’ and the movie is savage. A police unit called to an abandoned building becomes trapped in a surreal nightmare. Today’s Hellraiser, must have made Clive Barker proud.

Available to watch on Amazon.




2.

Last Shift

RELEASED: 2015

This is the type of horror movie we need all the time, every time. Jessica Loren, a rookie police officer is asked to spend her first night on the job guarding a soon to be defunct precinct— will she make it though the Last Shift?

Available to watch on Amazon.




3.

Incident in a Ghostland

RELEASED: 2018

Got to be honest, Incident in a Ghostland is a tough one to watch. Director Pascal Lugiere, is known to have created the most disturbingly brutal film (Martyrs) and here he has done it again—only slightly less controversial. Not for everybody. It is very brutal but it is also terrifying.

Available to watch on Shudder.




4.

Veronica

RELEASED: 2017

Great horror movie lists are not complete without Veronica— the breakout, supernatural hit from Spain that left me sleeping with one eye open. Incredible.

Watch on Netflix.




5.

Terrified

RELEASED: 2017

Terrified (original name-Aterrados) is a Spanish language film out of Argentina that is currently being remade in English by none other than Guillermo del Toro—I don’t need to say much more to convince anyone.

Available to watch Shudder and Amazon.




6. & 7.

Hell House LLC

RELEASED: 2015

Hell House LLC is a perfectly, creepy, haunted house tale. Not since Poltergeist has a movie been able to pull off the old clown trick so successfully.

Hell House LLC II

RELEASED: 2019

How often is a sequel as scary as the original? Not very often. Oh, and remember when I mentioned the clown scene above? Wait until you see them in the sequel.

Watch both on Shudder.




8. & 9.

The Conjuring

RELEASED: 2013

James Wan perfected the ghost story so much so that The Conjuring has been called the scariest movie of the decade. I tend to agree, and then some.

The Conjuring 2

RELEASED: 2016

In The Conjuring 2 Ed and Lorraine Warren head across the pond to investigate a haunting in a small English town. Part 3 is coming soon and if it’s anything like the first and its sequel, you’d better bet it will make this list as well!

Watch both on Amazon.




10.

Insidious

RELEASED: 2011

Insidious, another James Wan film is grittier than The Conjuring. This movie reeks of pure fright. It is a fright trap from start to finish. The sequel and the 3rd installment are quite good as well. (Nothing like the original though.)

🔚

Watch on Netflix.
