This got us thinking about the scariest movies out there. Here are the top 10 that gave us the jitters for weeks...and still do!

The Shining

Based on the novel by Stephen King, A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

The Ring

Anyone with long, dark hair has scared the bejayzus out of their friends by reenacting The Ring. Based on the Japanese original, A young journalist has to investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it. We still haven't recovered from this one.

Paranormal Activity

After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence and we can see everything that happens thanks to all the cameras they've set up around the house. Another found footage gem. 

The Omen

A devil child: the number one ingredient for the creepiest of movies. Mysterious deaths surround an American ambassador. Could the child that he is raising actually be the anti-christ? Yes...yes it could.

Psycho

This iconic movie put Hitchcock firmly on the map as a director. It is one of, if not the most famous film of his with undoubtedly one of the most famous movie scenes ever. A Phoenix secretary steals $40,000 from her employer's client, goes on the run and checks into a remote motel run by a ... Psycho.

A boy's best friend is his mother.

Scream

So the others are definitely scarier but we couldn't leave this one out. Anyone who babysat in the 90's knows how scarring this one was! 

Hello Sydney!

The Blair Witch Project

The Blair Witch Project kicked off the found-footage genre. It's one of the most successful independent films of all time, making $248 million worldwide on a tiny budget.

Rosemary's Baby

A young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbours and occurrences. Things get even weirder when the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant.

The Conjuring

Before we get to the scariest of the lot, we must give a nod to The Conjuring. This is the only movie that could possibly prepare us for The Conjuring 2! It is the true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren, world renowned paranormal investigators, who were called to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. 

The Exorcist

So now for the Mother and Father of all horrors. When a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother seeks the help of two priests to save her daughter.

This one is TERRIFYING. You've been warned!
