Scary Movies You Should Watch

  Back to blog Savanna Cordle

Call me a weirdo but I love scary movies and being scared! Here is a list of some of my favorite and scariest movies.

Amityville Horror

I am a total weirdo in the sense that if the scary movie is based on a true story it is 10 times better. Like, wow this happened in real life…terrifying!


Really any of the 3 they made are pretty good. I prefer suspenseful scary over gory scary.


A doll that is dressed like that and that moves around? Try and convince me that isn’t crazy, I’ll wait.

The Conjuring

The fact that Annabelle crosses over into this one is just too good.

Paranormal Activity

Just something about the thought of sleeping and not knowing if something or someone is there. I also remember watching this in theaters when I was maybe 11 and screaming every time something jumped out.

The Ring

Okay so I haven’t watched this one yet, but I have heard that it’s really scary and it’s a classic.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Okay first off, imagine someone using human flesh for furniture and to put over his own face. Then realize this actually happened…yeah creepy! But I will say that I prefer the original version compared to the newer one.

The Silence of the Lambs

Hannibal Lector or rather Buffalo Bill, killed and ate people in this movie. Another disturbing story inspired from real life killers, 3 to be exact, Ted Bundy, Gary M. Heidnik, and Ed Gein.

Children of the Corn

This is another classic that isn’t that scary, until you are in the middle of nowhere surrounded by cornfields. Like here in Iowa…coincidence? I think not!
