Top 25 Scariest Scary Movies Ever Made

First off, We would like to say that even though we loooooove the horror genre, we kind of hit a problem when trying to list the Scariest Scary Movies Ever Made…

It’s easy when you’re a kid, anything would scare the crap out of you. But now that we are all grown ups it’s a whole different story.

So, with this is mind we set out to list movies that actually scared us. We had to (sadly) turn down some really well made classics that, well, are just not scary anymore. We also banned gore movies from this list, if we had to pick a gore movie it would have to be for a pretty good reason.

#25 Audition


Tagline: She always gets a part

And by ‘part’ they don’t mean a play… From the twisted mind of Takashi Miike comes a tale of a widower that holds a fake audition to meet this actress (dancer?). The bitch turns out to be this psycho torture fetishist (not in a good way), she’s every man’s nightmare (unless you are into that, we don’t judge).

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#24 The House of 1000 Corpses


Tagline: The most shocking tale of carnage ever seen.

This movie is scary because of 1. Captain Spaulding, 2. The rest of the psycho Firefly family, 3. There’s murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals thoughout the whole thing… It’s not pretty. On the other side, the characters are incredibly unique and make this scary movie a must see.

Shriek Factor: 5/10

#23 Eraserhead


Tagline: In Heaven Everything Is Fine.

Like anything out of David Lynch’s mind, this totally fucked up movie is not really catalogued under the ‘horror’ genre but, that doens’t mean it’s not scary. Mr. Lynch definitely knows how to create a tense atmosphere and that mutant baby is ugly as hell.

Shriek Factor: 5/10

#22 The Entity


Tagline: There is no escape from something you cannot see.

The Entity makes it on our list because it’s based on actual events, that always elevates the scary factor by at least 50%. If you haven’t seen this one let us point out that it involves a lot of sex… with Satan.

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#21 The Others


Tagline: Sooner or later she’ll see them, then everything will be different.

A lot of you will give us crap for this pick, but The Others is a great scary movie, specially for beign so ‘new’. Alejandro Amenabar plays with your mind through the whole movie, scares the crap out of you and then gives you a great ending (we don’t care you didn’t like it, we did)

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#20 Friday the 13th


Tagline: On Friday The 13th, they began to die horribly, one……by one

We count all Friday the 13th movies here, they’re pretty much the same. Take your pick and watch Jason use sleeping bags, harpoons, arrows, axes, pitchforks, knives, road flares, beds, 2x4s, tree trunks, spears, machetes and a lot more things to kill his victims. You have to hand it out to the son of a bitch, he’s resourceful.

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#19 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)


Tagline: The idyllic summer’s day that became a nightmare of fear and blood…

The dude kills his victims with a chainsaw and wears their skin on his face!!!!!!!!!!! Ok?

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#18 Hellraiser(1987)


Tagline: Satan’s done waitin’

Another classic most of you have watched before, it features a lot of tortures, a gateway to hell and S&M loving demons (It sounds like a party, but it’s not)

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#17 Saw (The first one people, not any of the other crappy ones)


Tagline: Death is a shortcut

Another dark horse here that I know will get us lots of hate mail, but Saw is a pretty decent movie if you ignore the million that follow. The plot is damn original and it keeps you guessing all the way to the end, when you think you figured it out but you didn’t.

Shriek Factor: 6/10

#16 Halloween (1978)


Tagline: The trick was to stay alive.

The original slasher that started it all, Halloween still scared the crap out of us after all this years. Michael Myers is the original fucked-up-mother-f*cker you don’t want to come across on Halloween day.

Shriek Factor: 7/10

#15 Misery


Tagline: This Christmas there will be… Misery.

Stephen King manages to scare us, not with monsters but with pure evil in the shape of a kidnapping psycho that lives in the mountains… That bitch from Audition has nothing on Misery…

Shriek Factor: 7/10

#14 Evil Dead 2


Tagline: The Comedy/Horror of the Decayed

In order to understand this pick you must be familiar with the Evil Dead series. Evil Dead 2 is basically a remake of Evil Dead 1 but with a little better special effects. Don’t let the tagline fool you, this movie is actually scary… and yes, a little funny too.

Shriek Factor: 7/10

#13 Nightmare on Elm Street


Tagline: Sleep Kills

If anyone of you is reading this and thinking: “Freddy Krueger never scared me!”, YOU LIE!

Shriek Factor: 8/10

#12 Alien


Tagline: In space no one can hear you scream

Great suspense, great effects (even for modern standards), scary killer aliens and a spaceship. This movie will teach you a valuable lesson: When you see some weird looking egg lying around leave it the fuck alone.

Shriek Factor: 8/10

#11 The Thing


Tagline: Man is The Warmest Place to Hide

Another John Carpenter classic, The Thing is about a shapeshifting monster that takes the form of whoever it killed… picture that before you dismiss this movie.

Shriek factor: 8/10

#10 Rosemary’s Baby


Tagline: Pray for Rosemary’s Baby

This movie may or not make you scream, but it is definitely one of the best made horror flicks of all time. It keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end (we love that!) and the screenplay is creepy and original. Probably a good idea to show it to your kids if you want to scare them shitless about getting pregnant.

Shriek factor: 6/10

#9 The Descent


Tagline: Scream your last breath

It’s nice to see an all-women cast (all very sexy by the way) featured in a horror movie. The story follows a group of women that decide to spend the day exploring a cave… big mistake. By the end of this movie you will be gasping for air, we promise.

Shriek factor: 8/10

#8 Suspiria


Tagline: Once You’ve Seen It, You Will Never Again Feel Safe In The Dark

After watching this all you can figure out is that Dario Argento has some serious issues.

Shriek factor: 8/10

#7 It


Tagline: Your every fear – all in one deadly enemy.

Pennywise the clown is the reason why everyone over the age of 25 is afraid of clowns. Granted, the first part of the movie is a little slow and has a small amount of really scary moment… but they are all worth it.

Shriek factor: 7/10

#6 [REC]


Tagline: One Witness. One Camera

This movie features that Blair Witch camera trick that I personally find really annoying, but this movie pulls it off incredibly well. It’s probably one of the scariest films we’ve seen in years and it features a zombie little girl, what’s scarier that that?

Shriek factor: 9/10

#5 28 Days Later


Tagline: His fear began when he woke up alone. His terror began when he realised he wasn’t.

In the words of Jay (from The 40 Year Old Virgin): BITCH GET OUT OF THE ROOM!!!! This movie is fast paced and incredibly creepy. After watching it you feel it’s necessary to sleep with a knive under your pillow… you know, just in case your dad ‘snaps’ one day or something.

Shriek factor: 10/10

#4 The Ring


Tagline: Before you die, you see the ring

A lot of you will disagree, but we thought the US version was a million times scarier than the Japanese originals. What is it with evil kids that make them so damn horrific?? This movie is so scary you hardly notice Naomi Watts is hot.

Shriek factor: 10/10

#3 The Exorcist


Tagline: The Devil Inside

We all knew this one would make the top 5. Considered one of the best in it’s genre, people actually fainted in movie theathers when it opened. The vomiting, the levitating, the head twirling, that horrible voice… gives us goosebumps just remembering.

Shriek factor: 10/10

#2 The Shining


Tagline: The Horror is driving him crazy

A #1 deserving flick, The Shining usually makes that spot in most lists. The psychological suspense quickly turns into a lunatic’s night of rage that will leave you breathing heavy until the very end. Jack Nicholson gives one of his best performances and aloong with with the dead twins, the stuffed animal lovers and the creepy bartender make this movie a winner.

Shriek factor: 10/10

#1 Dawn of the Dead


Tagline: When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

The only reason that this movie beat The Shining for the #1 spot was the fact that it took less that 15 minutes to get a ‘WTF!’ out of us, after that scene with the little zombie girl you know you are in for a wild ride. Set on some kind of apocalyptic happening world, a group of people try to survive a zombie attack. Will they make it? Well, we can only say the action stops at the very, very end.

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
internet will be much more useful than ever before.
