Frailty

This underrated gem has a twist ending even horror buffs won’t see coming. And if you’ve seen it before, it’s still fun (and super creepy) to watch.

Let the Right one In

This is creepy and unsettling, but not super scary. However, it’s a horror fan favorite and an awesome date night movie (weirdly). It’s worth the subtitles to watch the original, the remake isn’t totally terrible though.

The Shining

Unlike most horror movies, it doesn’t lose its scare-factor the more you see it. It manages to be horrifying every time you watch it.

The Orphanage

A chilling gothic movie full of suspense. It’s subtitled, but so worth it.

Sinister

This one seems consistently overlooked to me. It was a totally fresh concept that was genuinely unnerving and very, very scary. The sequel is also very good!

Silence of the Lambs

The Thing

If you’re tired of horror movies where the main characters act like complete idiots, watch this classic. You’ll actually relate to them and the horror they encounter.

House of the Devil

The retro vibe is really cool, the tension Ti West builds up is uncomfortable (in a fun way), and the last 20 minutes or so are super terrifying.

The Ring

With a new movie coming out in the franchise soon, it’s time to get reacquainted with the film that made us all afraid of our TVs.

Event Horizon

If you’re missing a horror movie with an actual plot, try this one. It’s a thinking person’s horror movie.

Dead Silence

It’s a little cheesy, but it’s also surprisingly scary, especially if you have a fear of dolls.

Insidious

All the movies in this franchise are actually really scary. This is the best pick if you want to do a mini-marathon.

Totally unexpected and sadistic. You know it’s going to scare the shit out of you when even the Wikipedia entry is terrifying.

There’s something about animal masks that makes everything so much creepier. Also, the soundtrack to this one is killer.

Watch this before your beach vacation. Hell, even swimming pools are scary after this one.

The Others

Rarely gets mentioned because it’s not quite as good once you’ve seen it and know the ending. If enough time has passed since you’ve last seen it, you’ll be surprised how creeped out you get.

Watch this one when you’re craving something other than the standard issue ‘killer on the loose’ or ‘haunted house’ plot. It feels fresh and is full of jump scares that make it super satisfying.
