Others are into walking dead zombies while others dig blood-hungry, handsome vampires prowling on dark nights. Still others delve into psychological horror films which leave one in deep retrospection. Whatever kind of horror movies one watches, this genre always keeps one at the edge of his seat.
Listed below are some of the horror films of all time:
Night of the Living Dead
1968’s Night of the Living Dead by horror legend George Romero ultimately depicted the modern zombie movie. Adapting a genre that had been dominated by voodoo zombies, the story of a group of survivors hiding because dead has risen up in Pennsylvania farmhouse is quite scary, has a strong political theme, and has such a long audience that its influence is still felt today in the glut of zombie apocalypse epics that fill movie and television screens.
No matter what genre you place this film in, there’s no denying the fact that sheer terror inspired by Steven Spielberg’s 1975 Jaws is truly epic.
Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic masterpiece should also be in the list. From the shower scene and the big reveal at the end, Psycho is brilliant and terrifying and stands between greatest accomplishments of one of the best filmmakers ever.
Further more than modern pieces including Nightmare on Elm Street and also the Friday the thirteenth, John Carpenter’s Halloween, regarding associate degree at large mental patient during a William Shatner mast terrorizing a little Illinois city outlined the slasher craze that sweptback horror cinema in the late Seventies and early Eighties.
The 80s were a magical period for John Carpenter, and one of his highest grossing films was 1982’s The Thing.
A topic of debate over whether it is a science fiction or a horror movie, the debate’s conclusion doesn’t really matter much, because anyway you see at it, Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien still is one of the most terrifying movies of all time!
Roman Polanski’s 1968 epic psychological horror masterpiece, Rosemary’s Baby, provides terror and tension on every level.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Dreadful, Blood-spattered, and deeply upsetting in so many ways, the film that was firstly described as “despicable” and horrible has ascended to become a classic piece of horror movies.
A paradigm of how painstaking the filmmaker was. Jack Torrance performed strikingly by Jack Nicholson’s, an author cut off from the rest of the world, bit by bit losing his mind in his seclusion, not being in much benefit for his wife and son, might be regarded as one of the most frightening twist in all of films.
Playing up themes of religion versus science and good versus evil, twiddling with belief and uncertainty, the film depicts on a number of base fears that accompanied us for eons, which is why it still echo’s, and frighten us even in present time.
