35. 'The Fly' (1986)

What do you get when you cross a classic Kafka tale, a lot of goop, Geena Davis, and Jeff Goldblum? No, the answer's not "Reading Rainbow." "The Fly" is a psychological thriller as it flips human morality on its head (think twice before you crush that little ant under your foot). The movie also has enough special effects to make your stomach churn; and that maggot scene, well… you get the idea.

34. 'Salem's Lot' (1979)

Turns out vampires are a lot like cockroaches. One moves to town, and the next thing you know there are dozens of them creeping around feeding on the locals. This is the premise of our favorite Stephen King story. The movie, while flawed, still has some great scary moments including a "dead" kid scratching at his friend's second story window. And, as an added bonus, it stars David Soul who played Hutch in "Starsky & Hutch." Dy-no-mite!

33. 'Gates of Hell' (1980)

As the title suggests, the gates of Hell are opening and "odd" things begin to happen in the town of Dunwich. We're not talking like dogs and cats living together, we mean crazy stuff like a girl (for no apparent reason) hurling up her own intestines. If you're a fan of graphic gore and bad lip-syncing the Italian-made "Gates of Hell" might be your favorite film.

32. 'Session 9' (2001)


A cleaning crew working at an abandoned mental hospital is an obvious recipe for scares. You just know that something bad is going to happen. And happen it does. It's only at the end do we - the audience - realize how crazy one of the crew members has been since the beginning. As an added bonus the film was shot at the former state hospital in Danvers, Mass.

31. 'In the Mouth of Madness' (1994)

The plot here is unimportant — some guy finds out some other guy's books are opening up some other reality, where monsters abound and things are getting all weird. Yeah, yeah, we've heard it before. Here's the important part: There is a scene where the protagonist is out driving on a road at night. He hears a clicking sound. He rolls down the window. A bike rolls up next to him with a gray haired creature at the helm. The creature leers at the protagonist. You'd scream too, you big sissy.

30. 'Altered States' (1980)

William Hurt plays a scientist who woofs down hallucinogenic drugs and floats in an isolation chamber to ... do something. We're not entirely sure why. What we do know is that when the experiment goes awry (and don't they all?), his body begins to transform into some sort of howling blob. Yuck. Somebody should have told him to just say no to drugs.

29. 'Mothman Prophecies' (2002)

Strange things are happening in Point Pleasant, W.Va. For one, Richard Gere can't figure out how he got there. Then there are the shadowy winged figures lurking around. And finally, the phone calls from someone (or something) with a creepy insect-like voice. Did we mention the phone wasn't plugged in?

28. 'The Mist' (2007)

"There's something in the mist. Shut the doors!" screams a bleeding man stumbling into a small town grocery store. Behind him, an impenetrable wall of mist descends. And thus begins a tale of survival. Monsters in the mist you ask? For sure! But the real horror show takes place when the trapped super market shoppers turn on each other. Thank you Mr. King for another sleepless night.

27. 'Videodrome' (1983)


Everyone loves TV, but not as much as the hero in this story. In typical David Cronenberg fashion, the protagonist melds with his television. Symbolic? Sure. Hallucinatory? Of course. Creepy? Extremely. What follows is a big splattery mess chock full of blood, violence, and some sort of human VCR hybrid. Don't ask, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

26. 'Seven' (1995)

It may be the cast (Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow) that does it for "Seven," or it may just be the outrageous amount of visual profanity on display: blood, guts, and severed heads. Not to mention a really fat dead dude and a corpse who's not quite kicked the bucket. Plus, the sun didn't shine for the whole movie. Sweet.

25. 'War of the Worlds' (1953)

This is without a doubt the best, and scariest, sci-fi flick from the '50s. Based loosely on H.G. Wells's classic cautionary tale, the film follows the world's failed efforts to stem an invasion from Mars. The film offers plenty of scares, but the biggest has to be the encounter with a Martian in the abandoned farm house.

24. 'Saw' (2004)


Initially rated NC-17 before being re-edited, "Saw" follows the travails of two men held captive by Jigsaw, a serial killer who presents his victims with a terrible choice. Avoiding the slasher flick clichés (teens being pursued by ax-wielding maniac), the film delves into darker psychological territory while still maintaining an unhealthy level of gore.

23. 'Janghwa, Hongryeon (A Tale of Two Sisters)' (2003)

Never has a menstrual cycle been presented as more terrifying or as, well, a harbinger for doom, death, and ghosts. This Korean masterpiece, directed and written by Ji-woon Kim, is elusive, subtle and horribly, horribly frightening. It centers on two deranged sisters, one deranged step-mother, one deranged father, and one deranged phantom. Oh, and some birds. Scary ones.

22. 'The Silence of the Lambs' (1991)

Jodie Foster never signed back onto the "Lecter" franchise, and that's all the more reason to watch the original as many times as you can stomach it. Lecter versus Starling. Hopkins versus Foster. Buffalo Bill, in night-vision goggles and a human-skin suit, versus the world. All that psychological suspense aside, we know you jumped 35 feet in the air when Lecter snapped suddenly at the glass... Go on, fess up.

21. 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (1974)

What sets this movie apart from other slasher films? Perhaps it was Leatherface's human skin mask, or maybe it was the roar of the chainsaw, or it could have been the "based on a true story" line at the beginning. Who can say? What is certain is that this is an extremely scary movie — especially Leather's happy-dance at the end of the movie. Jason could learn a few things.
