People Say These 21 Movie Scared Them The Most And I Completely Agree

Lots of people love horror films, but some horrors are far scarier than others. Someone recently asked the internet, “What is the movie you watched that scared you the most?” Here are the top 21 answers people responded with.

The Grudge

“It took me over a decade to be able to sleep with the lights off. That noise they make…ugh. I shudder just thinking about it.”

“It’s called a death rattle. She makes that noise because she broke her neck, so it implies the story.”

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

“The scene when the boyfriend wakes up in the middle of the night to see her contorted on the floor and staring right at him really got me.”

“The worst part of this movie is that it was based on a true story. A heartbreaking story about a woman with schizophrenia killed by her parents and priest. God Awful Movies has a good episode about it.”

Alien

“As a 10-year-old in 1979 at the theater, Alien made me so scared I felt physically sick.”

“I used to get nightmares from Alien.”

Hellraiser

“Hellraiser freaked me out so much I had to pause it, in the daytime, on a videotape/ small tv setup…”

“I’m 45, and I still won’t watch Hellraiser. It just looks terrifying by the preview, and sounds terrifying from what I’ve heard people say about it.”

The Ring

“I watched The Ring when I was nine and nearly soiled myself.”

“I saw The Ring in a movie theater. The girl in a couple behind was so scared she was crying half the movie while the lad was laughing nervously. It was hilarious until I was home alone that night, and the phone rang.”

Hereditary

“Hereditary scarred me forever. I love horror movies but tend to shy away from violent scenes. Usually, I can predict when something is about to happen (VERY well), but that one scene in Heredity got me, and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to ‘un-see’ it.”

“That’s a scene I wasn’t expecting either. You can’t ever un-see that. Ever.”

The Blair Witch Project

“The Blair Witch Project always makes me cry from being so scared.”

“I feel people who laugh at Blair Witch are mostly just doing it because of all the spoofs of the ‘I’m so scared’ moment. The movie is a horror classic and is still often cited as one of the scariest films ever made…”

Jaws

“I still don’t go in the ocean.”

“I was older, but still, for years after, I would start panicking in the water. It is the only movie where I was scared in daylight with crowds around me. The funny thing is I have swum on a reef with sharks around, and it didn’t bother me.”

Night of the Living Dead

“Night of the Living Dead – the original. I was home alone and actually tried to board up the windows.”

“I lived with my grandmother for a while on her farmhouse that had a forest in the backyard. At night her spotlights made it look like the scenes where the zombies are walking up to the house. I had so many nightmares because of this.”

No Country for Old Men

“The atmosphere of dread and unpredictability really justified the film’s tagline, ‘You Can’t Stop What’s Coming.’

“The movie does such a good job of building suspense.”

Requiem for a Dream

“Definitely a good movie to show your kids in lieu of the D.A.R.E. program.”

Poltergeist

“It was still daylight when I went in, but not two hours later, after the movie had fried my hair. I walked the mile home alone in the dark and had the first sleepless night of my life.”

“Second this, I was like 10 when I saw it, and my older brother thought it was awesome after the movie to go outside my window in the summertime when it’s cracked and whisper my name until I started screaming in fear…”

The Shining

“The Shining got into my subconscious like no horror movie I’ve seen before or since.”

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

“I used to live in Travis County. I was freaked out about visiting the rural parts of the county.”

“My favorite!”

Trilogy of Terror

“Trilogy of Terror from the 1970s. The third short film is about the voodoo warrior doll that comes to life and hunts Karen Black in her home at night. Bad quality by today’s FX standards but will mess you up when it comes time to go to sleep at night.”

“That Zuni doll has haunted many a nightmare. So creepy!”

The Vanishing

“The Vanishing really crawled under my skin.”

“I’ve only seen the original, and it scared me on the deepest level.”

The Descent

“This movie still scares the bejeezus out of me. The director’s cut and not the viewer-friendly tv version.”

“Yep, most ‘scary movies’ don’t really actually make me feel fear, but this one stands out. Actual fear was felt. Even on a second watch, I was shaken.”

The Exorcist

“This creeps me right out. I’m fine with zombies, ghosts, monsters, and even demons, but put a priest chanting some bible cult hymns, and I get the heebie-jeebies.”

“I grew up in an evangelical church, but my mom lived and died a catholic. This movie has always terrified me. Both my church and my mom believed that the premise of this movie was completely plausible…”

World War Z

“Just how quickly society broke down and how quickly everything turned into total chaos right in my backyard scared the heck out of me; it was terrifying. It’s not even necessarily a matter of ‘the threat of zombies’ but just how quickly societal collapse can occur.”

“Societal collapse, huh? May I recommend The Sadness? Hits a similar vein.”

“Make fun of me all you want, but that movie is NOT for kids.”

“No, it is a kid’s movie because it has a less graphic depiction. Just because it is genuine horror doesn’t mean it isn’t for children. They should be exposed to horrifying situations.”

Come and See

“Because it really happened.”

“Came here to say this. It’s utterly terrifying that real-life incidents can be more horrifying and scarring than cinematic horror.”
