Halloween is just around the corner. Time for trick or treat and scary stories again.
I personally love it when I see kids dressing up as their favorite characters, especially the classic horror characters like Michael Myers (the serial killer from the Halloween series) and Jason Voorhees.
Which brings us to the list that we are doing today. We are counting down the most iconic horror movies that ever set foot on the silver screen.
The Best Horror Movies Ever
This countdown is based on these following criteria; suspense factor, cinematography and its impact on pop culture. So, don’t be surprised that Troll 2 is not this list.
Blair Witch Project (1999)
Rotten Tomatoes: 86%
A worldwide hit movie that grossed a total of $250 million bucks, the Blair Witch Project was definitely a movie that captured the imagination of its audience.
Due to the way they shot the movie (they used a Hi-8 video with black and white 16mm film), the movie looked so darn realistic that most of the movie-goers all got the same question after watching the movie.
“Was that real?”
Certainly a pop culture phenomenon and the best movie of its genre, this movie deserved being seated on the top 5 of this list.
Rotten Tomatoes: 88%
There’s still a veil of mystery surrounding this iconic horror flick up to this day.
Even heard of the “Poltergeist curse“?
Sounds freaky as hell. Well, it really is.
For one, they used real human corpses in the movie instead of using rubber ones because apparently, using real human skeletons are far more cheaper than creating ones out of rubber.
The sudden death of the main protagonist, Heather O’Rourke at the young age of 12 was the final nail in the coffin.
A cult classic, this movie still is scary as F* 3 decades later.
Dawn of the Dead (1979)
Rotten Tomatoes: 93%
8.0 from IMBD and a generous 93% from Rotten Tomatoes.
You’re probably thinking that this movie’s budget costs tens of millions of dollars. Well, you’re wrong.
It’s just a low-budget zombie film filled with B-movie stars.
The film’s director, George Romero holds the title of being the King of Zombie movies.
Great storyline and high suspense factor, this movie earned its cult following and it really deserved the praise that it got from the movie critiques.
Rest in Peace George, thank you for your gruesome but wonderful flicks.
The Shining (1980)
Rotten Tomatoes: 87%
Stanley Kubrick, Jack Nicholson and Stephen King.
Put that together and you got the combination for the most iconic suspense/thriller movie ever.
Who can forget the tagline, “Here’s Johnny!”.
The Shining is a masterpiece of the one-point perspective. Some critics even say that this is the best movie ever made.
Two words: Stanley Kubrick. Need to say more?
Before we go down to the number one on our list, here are some films that are worth mentioning.
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Shaun of The Dead (My personal favorite) (2004)
Nosferatu: PHANTOM DER NACHT (1979)
The Sixth Sense (1999)
Evil Dead (1981)
And the number one horror movie is;
Rotten Tomatoes: 93%
The true definition of a slasher flick, Michael Myers’ legacy certainly stood the test of time. Good thing Jamie Lee Curtis agreed to play her iconic role again as Laurie Strode in this new Halloween movie reboot.
You can see virtually any horror movie cliche in this film. Stupid characters that gets killed off first, a night setting, a nanny watching the kids and of course, the somewhat immortal psycho killer.
But that doesn’t make the movie predictable. Far from it. Try watching it alone and turn off the lights. You’ll see what I mean.
So if you’re looking for a good movie on your fright night, fire up this movie and watch Michael Myers go to work.
