The 10 scariest films of all time

Top 10 Horror Movies

Every October, in the days leading up to Halloween, I like to look back over my favourite horror films, and watch those that have eluded me. It’s hard to explain why we like scary movies so. They don’t make us laugh, like comedies. They don’t move us, like dramas. They don’t arouse us, like Burt Reynolds pictures. Actually, scratch that. They do all three. Freaky features also thrill us and haunt our dreams. For better or worse, these flicks stick with us, with even greater lasting power than our favourites from any other genre. So, what better tribute than devoting an entire month to adding more fuel to our nightmares, and re-ranking our faves. Halloween can’t be contained to just one night, after all. My personal Top 10 may alter slightly each year, influenced mostly by me adding more and more movies to my repertoire, but the one factor that doesn’t change things is my age: no matter how old I get, these things never stop scaring me.

Honourable mentions: 28 Days Later, Audition, Alien, An American Werewolf in London, Black Sabbath, The Blair Witch Project, Deep Red, The Descent, Eyes Without A Face, Jaws, The Innocents, Les Diaboliques, Night of the Living Dead, Repulsion, The Silence of the Lambs, The Thing.
