Once everything is sorted, let’s start looking at the list of movies that we have gathered.
1. The Exorcist(1973)
One of the best American supernatural classic horror is Exorcist. This film still packs a punch in terms of unsettling power like nothing else. It’s not only a gripping drama about faith and parenthood but also a seriously spine-chilling tale of demonic possession. From the shocking profanity and head-spinning moments to the pea-soup projectile vomiting and unspeakable acts involving a crucifix, Linda Blair’s performance (backed by the unforgettable voice of Mercedes McCambridge) shivers down the spines of an entire generation of movie buffs.
2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
This horror flick, directed by Tobe Hooper, is more of an underrated slasher movie, which didn’t get as much attention as it should have. Although it’s a sharp satire on American class divisions, however, one can just watch it as it is. This movie is a classic tale of adventurous teenagers in the remote wilderness, where they stumble upon some spooky people and then from there start the journey of bone-chilling terrifying deaths.
This movie really does stand as one of the darkest masterpieces of the ’70s. Despite its reputation for being super gruesome, “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” isn’t actually all that bloody. What it is, though, is hands down the most terrifying movie ever made. So, if you haven’t already mustered the courage to watch it, this might just be the year to do so!
3. The Halloween (1978)
The Halloween movie wasn’t the first stalk ‘n’ slash film, but its massive success opened the door for four decades of slasher movies to follow. In comparison to numerous later installments in the franchise, it exercises a bit more restraint, leaning heavily on atmosphere rather than excessive gore. Carpenter skillfully amps up the tension, building towards a truly chilling climax.
4. Child’s Play (1988)
If you look at it on paper, Child’s Play sounds pretty absurd. It’s centered around a serial killer whose essence becomes confined to a doll – and no, it’s definitely not a My Buddy. This murderous doll then goes on a rampage. Clearly, his goal is to escape the toy form and switch bodies with a young child. It’s a fresh spin on the slasher genre, which was already showing signs of waning popularity and excitement by the late ’80s.
5. Evil Dead (1981)
A group of college students plan to take a weekend off in an isolated cabin in the woods. While exploring the old creaking cottage, they stumble upon a spooky weird book and an old tape recorder with a recording in it. When they play the recording and open that book, they have no idea that the deadliest horror awaits them. Everyone is at risk now that the demonic forces are in the open. It is guaranteed that this movie will surely make you jump from your seats and scream.
6. Hereditary (2018)
You know, even though horror movies have come up with some mind-blowing stuff, mixed up genres, and put new spins on old ideas, “Hereditary” proves that you don’t have to flip the script to deliver seriously bone-chilling scares totally. It’s about a grieving family dealing with some seriously creepy stuff tied to their family history after one of the members passes away.
With such an eerie atmosphere hanging over you, even the toughest horror buffs will be left a little shell-shocked by the sheer fright factor. This movie was the first big feature from Ari Aster, who’s now considered one of the most exciting talents in the biz.
There you go! You are good to go for Halloween. Although there are many fantastic horror classics, we tried picking out the most famous ones to watch. If you are a horror movie fan or have just recently started enjoying scary spooky, supernatural movies, you should definitely get on the list and start watching these movies. However, we must warn you to keep a light on because you might get super scared and scare the neighbors by screaming too loudly.
