The best horror movies keep us on the edge of our seats. They’re unpredictable and terrifying, with no respect whatsoever for our boundaries or bedtimes. The best scary movies are the ones that don’t just make you jump when you are watching them but clamber under the duvet with you when you retreat to sleep. And yet, we want to find the scariest, the most terrifying and the most disturbing horror films to fire digitally into our eyeballs. There are many horror movies, but I am going to list only five, which are the scariest according to me.


Directed and Written by Alejandro Amenabar

‘The Others’ (Spanish: Los Otros) is a 2001 English-language Spanish gothic supernatural psychological horror film.

This movie has many twists and turns. You might need to watch this a few times to get it all straight. The story revolves around a lady named Grace and her children, staying in their enormous old mansion situated at the nearly abandoned island. She was waiting for her husband to come from the battle of second world war hopelessly. Grace raised her children with strict regulation, following religious principles. Everything seems calm for her unless three mysterious servants arrived that accidentally begin to break the rules with unexpected consequences.

‘Rings’ is a 2017 American supernatural horror film which revolves around a mysterious video. After watching the video, the viewer will die in seven days. The story was about a young lady who sacrifices her life to save his boyfriend, and in finding the way to break the curse, she saw that there is a video. A video that no one has ever seen before. I bet after watching this movie you will be scared to watch any random video.

The spin-off films focus on the origins of some of the entities the Warrens have encountered. It is a horror series.

The film was first conceived as a dark horror sequel to Close Encounters of the Third Kind entitled Night Skies. This film has been perceived as a classic within the horror genre and has gained a cult following. The story revolves around a family finds themselves surrounded by ghosts when they move into a new home. They thought it would be a safe place to live.

‘The Grudge’ is a 2004 supernatural horror film. The plot is notified through a nonlinear sequence of events. It comprises of several intersecting subplots. The movie describes a curse that is born when someone dies in the grip of extreme rage or sorrow. Those who encounter this supernatural force die and the curse is reborn repeatedly, passing from victim to victim in an endless, growing chain of horror. The following events are explained in their actual order. However, the film is presented in a nonlinear narrative. The story revolves around a woman living in Tokyo. She finds herself the latest person plagued by a curse that spreads from victim to victim.
