Top 10 Scary Movies of All Time

Bone-Chilling Thrillers for a Bloody Good Fright Fest

The Exorcist, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Scary Movies

The Best Horror Movies for Halloween

You're safe at home in your living room. You've got popcorn, some soda. Maybe the lights are on, maybe you're brave and they're not. But the blinds are drawn. Your door is locked tight. You're perfectly safe. After all: ghosts, demons, zombies, monsters ... they don't exist. As a rational adult, you know this. So what is it about certain films that can make your muscles tense, make an icy shiver race up your spine, make your heart quicken at a sudden sound — a quiet creak, a soft breath, the scratch of a nail or a claw on the windowpane? Probably just a tree branch, you tell yourself. But you don't turn around, because you wouldn't dare tear your eyes away from the screen. These scary movies don't just shock or frighten: they get under your skin in the most deliciously creepy way.
