List: Top ten scariest movies that are guaranteed to creep you out.


Our favorite rhyming cat and I were talking about scary movies the other day.  Apparently, he has a much higher tolerance for creepy films than me.  I jump way too easily.  We decided to link up and list our recommendations for the top ten scariest movies that we've seen.  With Halloween lurking around the corner, I figured this would be a most appropriately spooky post!

Top ten scariest movies to watch this season.


This movie is a scary movie classic!  It's been almost a decade since I've seen it and I can still see that little girl crawling around.  You'll watch this movie through spread out fingers covering your eyes.
Can be found here.

This movie is about a bunch of mutants not the friendly kind from X-men that track, hunt, and do unimaginable things to a poor family that was just trying to enjoy a vacation.  It has suspense that will make you jump and a backstory that will linger in your thoughts.
Can be found here.

These movies will teach you that you can never cheat death.  When it's your time to go, there's no saving you.  I credit this series with ending my tanning salon addiction.  With 5 films, you can easily watch one a week as a countdown to Halloween.
Can be found here.

While this may not be the spookiest flick on this list, it's a classic and a must watch.  Besides, if you get to the end of the collection, you'll be rewarded with Jared Padalecki my favorite Hollywood hunk as the main character.
Can be found here.

Of all the movies on this list, I think this one is the scariest.  Just seeing the cover image of the film makes me have to look away.  This movie will creep you out, make you jump, and have you checking under your sheets for unwelcome guests every night.
Can be found here.

I saw this one as a young teenager and can still remember explicit details.  Watch out for the twist at the end, and, you know, the others.
Can be found here.

This movie was creepy enough without taking into consideration the fact that it's based on a true story and that I live two towns over from the actual house.  What started a gruesome mass murder ended with a home full of restless and vengeful spirits.
Can be found here.

This suspense movie was extra scary because it took place under water.  For those of you that fear drowning, the dark, the unknown, and being eaten alive, this movie may quickly become your #1 scariest.
Can be found here.

This scary movie was creepy, suspenseful, and real difficult to watch with both eyes wide open.  While the originals were definitely creepy, this most recent one was the scariest of them all.
Can be found here.

10.  Saw 1 - 7
This movie has it all.  Suspense to make you jump.  A creepy back story that will haunt your thoughts.  Anyone take time to taste their tea after watching this?  And lots of gore to make you nauseous.  If you're looking for a movie marathon to count down the days to Halloween, this is the movie collection for you.
Can be found here.

If scary movies aren't enough to get you into the Halloween mood, then try watching all 14 and a half seasons of Supernatural.  Not only is it scary, but the lead characters are three very handsome men.  We're about to see the end of an era this upcoming October.  A moment of silence for Supernatural, please.

What movie do you find the scariest?

    1. Seriously??? I remember checking under my sheets for days after The Grudge. My friends would call me and do that cackling sound on the phone. Ugh just thinking about it gives me shivers!!! The ring scares until one day told me I looked like her. Um, what??

    2. lol you are scared easily. What if someone calls and gores all Scream on you?

  2. I don't generally watch horror movies. Out of those that I watched WRONG TURN was definitely the scariest and plus it had my dear Desmond Harrington, from whom I may or may not have borrowed my name :) As a kid I was freakishly afraid from Freddie Krueger, and Candyman still scares me, to this very day I won't say Candyman five times in front of the mirror.

    1. I have never heard of Wrong Turn. I'm slightly intrigued to watch it now. Off to Prime & Netflix I go to see if it's on there. :) Is Candyman the horror movie version of Bloody Mary? I almost said Bloody Mary 3x in the mirror last Summer just to prove to my daughter that it wasn't real. Luckily, she stopped me, because I was a little spooked to do it myself.

    2. I've no idea what Bloody Mary is :) but Candyman is one of top five biggest classic horrors, it is from the 80s, methinks with Virginia Madsen. Wrong Turn was massively successful in the 90s, spawned sequels too, it is just very scary, I did not feel after watching it. It is interesting that I've never found zombies in Walking Dead scary at all...

    3. Blood Mary is a woman that appears in anything with a reflection after repeating her name 3x while looking in a mirror. Then she will hunt you down and kill you. It's some American legend, but it definitely does sound similar.

  3. I haven't seen many on your list. I've never watched the Friday the Thirteenth movies (on purpose). In my younger years, my husband and I saw the Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the theater. It was sooo scary that we left in the middle of the film. I read the Amityville Horror book AND while my husband worked a late shift. Oh my goodness. I was so scared.

    1. I remember Texas Chainsaw Massacre! After that movie came out, the "haunted corn mazes" had quite few men dressed up similarly with a chainsaw chasing you out at the end. Ugh, Amityville horror gives me the creeps, although the new owners of the home swear it's not haunted..

  4. One thing I WONT do is watch a scary movie. Unless I never want to go to my basement again. Or be in my house alone at night. I remember being freaked out by Jaws when I was a kid and that’s not even a horror film. But my oldest and youngest love scary movies. I will have to ask them which ones they loved and report back to you.

    1. LOL Yes, please do. :) If your youngest is into this sort of stuff, you must tell them to watch Supernatural! My absolute favorite show ever!!

    2. Ok from your list they saw The Ring together. They also remember going to see The Conjuring at a theatre but the one that sticks out in all of our minds is Mama! Lol, they used to do the scary voice to me, saying “Mama” Look it up!

      Delete
    3. Eep!! I never saw Mama but I remember the commercials for it. If it's that spooky, maybe I'll tell the hubby that's what we need to watch Halloween night this year. Usually we watch Hocus Pocus.. If that tells you anything about my scare tolerance.

  5. In my opinion, the horror film mentioned above is the scariest one is The Ring.

    There is a classic horror film that really frightens me, namely The Exorcist.

  6. Hello Jax! Well, the only movies that succeeded in creeping me out are The Descent and, when I was too young to watch it, Evil Dead... YIKES!

    Saw would've crept me out but I was too scared to watch them. (Don't laugh.)

    Hope you're doing fine.

    1. Hey, Blue!! How are YOU doing? We miss you over here. :) I'm not a fan of Saw myself, but of course, I subject myself to the mental torture and watch it anyway.

  7. Saw was creepy. I think I about crapped my pants when I watched The Exorcist when I was a kid. Nightmare on Elm Street was my first horror movie and I had nightmares forever after that (I was only in first grade when I watched it at a friend's house). Can't say I do scary these days. Not because it gives me nightmares, I just prefer feel good movies anymore.

    1. I never saw either of those, but I have seen jokes about the spit up scene in The Exorcist. Maybe it was Scary Movie? A scary movie that I saw as a child was The Poltergeist, but I don't remember being too effected it by it. A movie that got me good as a child was The Birds!
