What Was The Scariest Movie That You’ve Ever Seen?

Halloween is Sunday and although I don’t have little ones anymore and there will be no trick or treating, there is one that that I will be doing on Sunday night and that is watching horror flicks. Now I don’t know about you, but for me the scariest movie that I’ve ever seen was The Exorcist which to this day I still can’t watch!

The Exorcist was by far one of the scariest movies ever made and one that I will never ever, ever never watch again!  Just the thought of some of the scenes still scare me and I remember sleeping with my grandmother for almost a month afterwards. I was definitely too young to watch it because I was only 10 years old when my cousin Cindy snuck me into the theater.

Below are just a few of the scariest movies that I’ve ever seen and I want to you name some of yours in the comments below.


The Exorcist

Linda Blair played that role to the hilt, I don’t know how she had a normal childhood after that role!


Night of the Living Dead which I watched last week is my favorite and although by today’s standards it wouldn’t be considered a scary movie, it is by far one of the BEST Zombie movies that I had ever seen! This un-dead flick from the 60’s with a black male lead character has the worst twist of fate at the end.

“They’re coming to get you Barbara!”

PSYCHO (1960)

Psycho, is the classic created by the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock who made taking a shower in a motel room scary and a mother and son relationship too weird for words! I actually started watching the “Bates Motel” series on A&E Network and enjoyed the back story.


John Carpenter’s Halloween, a story about a six-year-old boy named Michael Myers who stabs his sister to death and despite the fact that he spent many years in an asylum, learned to drive and then escaped is still slashing people 40+ years later!  This movie for me, is a must-see TV every Halloween, however, the latest remake, “Halloween Kills” is the worst remake ever!

FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)

Friday the 13th part 1 is yet another one of my favorite classic horror movies. I enjoyed most of the sequels but the first one is definitely the best and it has continued with 12 more franchised movies.  Jason Vorhees, a young child drowns at Camp Crystal Lake due to the negligence of the camp counselors returns decades later to kill…kill…kill and his mother was definitely and understandably insane.


A Nightmare on Elm Street

In A Nightmare on Elm Street, teenager’s nightmares became fatal.  The success of this 1984 classic horror film also launched a movie franchise.  Freddie Krueger, a hideously scarred pedophile was murdered by a lynch mob and returns years later in the terrifying nightmares of his killers’ teenage children.Freddy and Jason actually starred together in Freddy -vs- Jason in which they met and fought in hell.


Rosemary’s Baby is a movie about a young couple who moved into an apartment only to be surrounded by some really weird neighbors and strange occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to take control her life. The film chronicles the story of Rosemary who suspects that an evil cult wants to take her baby for use in their rituals…does she really give birth to Satan’s Spawn??

THE OMEN (1976)

The Omen is about a young child that was replaced at birth by an American Ambassador unbeknownst to his wife, after their own son was murdered at the hospital, enabling the son of Satan to grow up with wealth and power. They are surrounded by mysterious and ominous deaths, unaware that the child, Damien, is the Antichrist….he’s a spooky looking kid too!


Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a film that follows a group of friends who become victims of a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead. Although it was marketed as a true story to attract a wider audience and as a subtle commentary on the era’s political climate, its plot is entirely fictional; but did you know that the character Leatherface and a few plot details were inspired by the crimes of real-life murderer Ed Gein?


Saw is another franchise film that revolves around John Kramer, also called the “Jigsaw Killer” or simply “Jigsaw”.   Rather than killing his victims outright, Jigsaw traps them in situations that he calls “tests” or “games” to test their will to live through physical or psychological torture and believes if they survive, they will be rehabilitated. This was disgusting and another one of those movies that I refuse to watch anymore!

So, what was the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
