You have heard many times about the 'horror' that they call the 'most terrifying', but you never knew that this was really the case. Learn about the three scariest horror movies according to many people in this list. If you haven't watched them, you must do so immediately.
1. The Exorcist Genre: Horror IMDb Rating: 8.0 / 10 The Exorcist, released in 1973, has certainly made its mark on the history of horror movies as one of the oldest and scariest ever made. The Exorcist's original film, adapted from the novel of the same name, kept the audience glued to their seats.
In the film, two priests perform an exorcism on a twelve-year-old girl who is possessed by the devil. It was inspired by the original events recorded back in 1949 that inspired this novel and film. For those who love adrenaline-pumping movies, this is a must-see.
Maxim and Entertainment Weekly voted it as the scariest movie ever made.
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller IMDb Rating: 5.9 / 10 Hollywood's Grudge makes the top 10 list of horror movies, and it's the best of them all, in my opinion.
Even though The Grudge is a remake of a Japanese Ju-on script, its cinematography has been praised and applauded for many of its praises and accolades in the film industry. The film is a dark tale of supernatural horrors that revolves around the death of a person due to a curse followed by a death caused by anger or grief.
The entire film revolves around the idea that the curse can spread from one person to another, and that's what makes it so intriguing. There is no doubt that anybody who is a fan of horror movies and enjoys nonlinear presentations of a series of events and incredible cinematography should check out the Grudge series.
3. Nightmare on Elm Street Genre: Horror IMDb Rating: 7.5 / 10 In terms of box office revenue, A Nightmare on Elm Street has grossed over $450 million over nine film sets, making it one of the top American horror movies.
Featuring a script written and directed by Wes Craven, A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984 is one of the most terrifying horror films you'll ever see. As the story progresses, Freddy Krueger catches the teenagers who were burned alive by his henchmen and turns them into pawns for him.
Before terrorizing teenagers, he kills them in their dreams. It's probably the first of the franchise's nine films that you must see.
