10 Really Super Scary Movies!

  • 2 of 10

The Thing (1982) Director: John Carpenter. Although John Carpenter’s Halloween may be the obvious choice here, this remake of the 1950s classic of Kurt Russel dealing with this, well, thing, is scary with a capital S. All far, far away in a cold, chilly, remote Antarctic research station. With that….thing. Brrr. Scary. Chilling to the bone.

The Others - Yes, but creepy more than scary.
The Thing - No, but the remake is actually frightening.
The Silence Of The Lambs - Thriller, not horror, and not scary.
Nosferatu - Haven't seen it.
The Shining - Hell yes!
Let The Right One In - No way.
Nightmare - Never seen it, never will!
The Grudge - Pfft.
Alien - Meh, not that scary, but okay.
Young Frankestein - LOL. Great movie though.

I'm kind of disappointed 'The Blair Witch Project' isn't on here, I think that's one of my favorite horror movies.

Horror movies never scare me but I do find them entertaining and creepy.

Well, I do get scared if I watch them with the lights off in the middle of the night when nobody else is in the house and need to go to another room to get something. The trip feels much longer than it actually is since I am constantly looking over my shoulder and making sure I don't look out a window or in a mirror.
