Misery
Misery

"Misery, because you realize you know someone like Annie Wilkes. There is no supernatural element. She's a real person. She has motives that you can begin to understand. She's terrifying because you could meet someone like her on the street and think she's just some nice, lonely lady. You know what the really scary part is, though? It could be you. And you wouldn't think you were crazy. You'd believe that you were making rational decisions." Source

The Blair Witch Project
The Blair Witch Project

"When The Blair Witch Project came out I drove about 30kms along mountain roads to get to theatre. The drive home was terrifying, all I could think about was what could happen to me if the 78 MG I was driving were to break down again. That film resonated with me for a very long time." Source

The Thing
The Thing

"The Thing. That weird moan that Bennings doppleganger gives before they torch him/it really creeped the h*ll out of me. While it has it's BOO!/Gotcha scares, and gross-out scenes, what really makes a great horror movie for me is a profound feeling of doom or dread. Even better if that feeling follows me to bed."

The Poughkeepsie Tapes
The Poughkeepsie Tapes

"The Poughkeepsie Tapes. There's basically no actually scary moments in the movie, there aren't any jump scares or 'frightening' bits aside from a few tense. unsettling scenes. It's just pure, raw horror from start to end. Watching it made me realize how so many horror movies use fear as a crutch when they should otherwise be filling us with disquiet and empathy for the characters. I can honestly say I've actually cared about a handful of characters I've ever legitimately cared about in 'Horror' movies, but this one really made me feel for pretty much every character involved. But this movie left me terrified and unsettled for days. It's kinda like Jaws, but with serial killers." Source

The Descent
The Descent

"I recommend 'the Descent' for anyone whose claustrophobic. Especially if you're like me and live near caves. Ignoring the action packed second half, the concept of being trapped in the matter the characters find themselves in is terrifying to say the least." Source

"Rec. The original film, not Quarantine, which was the American remake. I watched Rec with dubbed over English and it is absolutely horrifying." Source

The Grudge
The Grudge

"The Grudge. My friends and I always talked about movies having 3 types of scares: Type 1: guy turns around, loud noise, there's the monster. Type 2: guy turns around, loud noise, no monster. Type 3: guy turns around, loud noise, no monster, turns back around and BOOM! Monster. The Grudge broke this rule because half the time the monster wasn't even noticed by the character, it was the audience. Hell, the first time you see it in the attic, the character doesn't and you had to sit there and wait for the character to see it before it scared you. That's messed up. Then at the end, the monster is right there, in front of the character, so she turns around and BOOM! It's f**king there too! Now we say there are four types of scares, type 1, type 2, type 3, and The Grudge. BTW, the director's cut sucked. Source

I Saw the Devil
I Saw the Devil

"I'm not currently an enthusiast, but I used to be. It's rare for a horror movie to scare me after the credits are over, but 'I Saw the Devil' still gets me. It is an incredibly unsettling thing to watch, mostly because it (or something similar) is something that could actually happen. It's a Korean movie about a man who seeks revenge on a serial killer/rapist who rapes and kills his wife. It sounds like it would be awesome seeing an awful man get some justice, but really no one wins in this movie. The idea of being raped, abused, and murdered is already unpleasant, however, watching this film just sparked a genuine fear that I have never gotten from another movie, and has actually carried on with me. It's not the kind of movie that you can simply say 'it's a just a movie, nothing like this could ever happen', because, things like this have and do happen all around the world." Source

Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Texas Chainsaw Massacre

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre A movie remembered as one of the bloodiest horror flicks of all time is actually almost entirely bloodless. It was made in a time before PG-13, so the makers wanted to keep the bulk of the violence off-screen, leaving the horror entirely up to the oppressively creepy atmosphere and tense, nail-biting moments. In doing so, it skips the typical schlock formula of blood, blood and more blood, relying on tone and tension. There's a reason it got so many sequels and remakes. A shame they missed the lessons of the original." Source

It Follows
It Follows

"It Follows stuck with me for way longer than any other horror movie I've seen. I couldn't stop thinking about the tall man scene every time I would walk somewhere in the dark." Source

The Ring
The Ring

"The Ring mostly because of the scene where the girl crawls up the well like spider man but faster. That scene alone makes me never want to watch it again." Source

The Exorcist
The Exorcist

"My Freshman year in college I talked my teammates into going to see the Exorcist in the movie theater. None of them had seen the Exorcist before and were convinced that it wasn't that scary. Okay so we all sit down the movie starts the first 30,40 minutes they're all like uhh this isn't scary. By an hour in everyone had their heads covered I don't think they even finished the end of the movie they were too scared to watch. And yo that crab walk I still can't watch that I'm a horror fan but Exorcist will always be the gold standard." Source

The Shining
The Shining

"The Shining will always stand out as one of the most terrifying movies to me. I saw it when I was about 7 or 8 and I felt confident that I wouldn't be scared because I saw the Simpsons parody of it. Nope. That bathtub scene scared the h*ll out me. I refused to bathe for like a week or two after that because I was so terrified." Source

Halloween
Halloween

"The original Halloween. The chilling parts, imo, were the early scenes where Michael Myers is in the background, just watching the main characters wearing a mask that resonates a terrifying cold inhuman detachment. And John Carpenter's music is just perfect." Source

Paranormal Activity
Paranormal Activity

"People sh*t on what Paranormal Activity became, and I'll definitely agree. Pretty much every PA movie after 2 was a steaming pile. The first movie was such a tense, horrifying movie that got the correct way to build tension. The concept of movies that have a monster in it, isn't inherently new, or fresh. But when you're trying to scare us and you show the monster multiple times, it loses it's terrifying nature over time. Where as with PA, you never saw it, you didn't know what it could or couldn't do. The unknown was the horror in that movie." Source
