Top 10 Greatest Horror Movies of All Time

As I’ve said before, I’m a huge horror movie fan despite the fact that I am a massive wimp. If there is one thing I love is a right good scare and the best way to do this is to turn off the lights, grab the popcorn and watch an epic horror movie. This is a list of the Top 10 greatest horror movies of all time.


The 1978 horror movie by John Carpenter has to be top of my list. The movie was easily the best horror movie of the whole Halloween franchise. What makes the movie so good is the fact that Michael Myers is unstoppable he’s like a force of nature that can’t be kept down.

The Exorcist:

The Exorcist is no doubt a horror movie classic that is hard to beat. I don’t normally enjoy possession movies but this one was amazingly horror-tastic. The movie is best known for its gross green spew scene and the 12-year-old girls rotating head *shiver.

The Shining:

Heeere’s Johnny!!! Who couldn’t love this down right creepy movie starring Jack Nicholson never mind a movie where Jack Nicholson loses his mind.

A Nightmare On Elm Street:

A Nightmare On Elm Street brought us one of the most well-known horror icons. The movie hit screens in 1984 and brought us, Freddy Kruger played by Robert Englund. Freddy is a disfigured evil killer who kills the teens on Elm street in their dreams. If they die in their dreams at Freddy’s hands then they die in reality too.


The movie is best known for its shower scene where Norman gets knife happy with a hotel guest in the shower. Norman Bates the main character suffered terrible emotional abuse by his mother that he ended up psychotic as a grown man.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre:

In this amazing movie, a group of friends fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead. The movie is more than a little gruesome but is also an epic watch for a horror movie night.

Evil Dead II:

This movie used to scare me so bad as a kid especially the dead at dawn scene. The Reason I prefer Evil Dead II is simply for the laughing furniture scene, It just cracks me up every time.

The Ring:

This is a movie I find very hard to watch without nearly leaping out of my skin. It’s about Rachel a journalist who is investigating the death of her niece and friends. She discovers they watched a tape then 7 days later they died. Rachel watched the tape and gets a terrifying phone call saying she has 7 days to live. That’s when Rachel discovers the story of Samara.

The Lost Boys:

This movie made me fall in love with vampires so I couldn’t exactly leave it off my list. The film is about two Arizona brothers who move to California and end up fighting a gang of teenage vampires. There they meet the Frog brothers who are willing to help them with their defeat of the vamps.

The Sixth Sense:

This movie has possibly got the biggest twist ending that I have ever seen. the movie tells the story of Cole, a troubled boy who is able to see and talk to dead people, and an equally troubled child psychologist who tries to help him.
