A poltergeist is, at its core, a very annoying ghost. You know, the type of ghost that breaks your furniture and kidnaps your children into other realms.
The frightening film also managed to do the impossible… make people fear their television sets (which would only be further entrenched by “The Ring” in 2002). Watch the Freeling family’s suburban bliss plunge into pure ghostly terror as they battle disgruntled spirits from other realms.
If you don't want to have to sleep with the light on for the next few months, just say "No" to "Nosferatu." The film has been hailed as the "birthplace" of the art of horror filmmaking. What's even more impressive, is that as a silent film, there is no reliance on loud bangs and jump scares to get your heart racing.
The terror that the viewer experiences is derived solely from the grotesque Count Orlock's appearance and movements. If you're unlucky enough, you'll most likely recognize the iconic shadowy shot of Count Orlock climbing a staircase to prey on his victims.
28 Days Later
"28 Days Later" takes place in Great Britain. After an ape runs away from a lab, a contagious virus spreads across the kingdom. The virus is conveniently called "Rage." 28 days after, Jim, portrayed by Cillian Murphy wakes up in a hospital.
This horror flick scares us because of one simple reason, it feels like its plot was taken out of our nightmares!
Steven Spielberg really needs no introduction. He is responsible for so many classics, some of them scarier than others. Jaws is definitely at the top of our list, even though some people claim this isn't even a horror movie! What can be more horrifying than sharks?
Spielberg goes hard on this one, and when the revengeful shark is around, no one is safe! Not even moviegoers, who, when the film was released, fled the cinema in terror.
Return of the Living Dead
Described as a "mordant punk comedy" and "undoubtedly one of the most significant zombie films ever," this film is certainly a head-scratcher for some (or, should we say, a brain scratcher).
The film famously introduced the now-cliched trope of zombies preferring to snack on human brains over any other body part. As a long-awaited follow-up to the original "Night of the Living Dead," the film definitely delivers when it comes to zombie gore and giggles. We recommend a "Living Dead" movie marathon!
