A good terror movie can get the blood pumping and add a bit of excitement to your Friday night. There’s a wide variety of subgenres to opt from, and each one has its own unique subject matter that it is really hard to get distracted from and bet on beloved CasinoChan.

Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is regarded as one of the most influential terror movies of all time. It stars a young woman who goes on a frightening journey, a deranged young man, and a frighteningly spine-chilling hotel.

Silence of the Lambs

This movie stars Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster, and it’s a great choice for anyone who’s fascinated by serial killers and psychopaths.

Get Out

Jordan Peele’s latest film, Get Out, investigates the darker side of race relations in the U.S. When a white woman takes her Black boyfriend to visit her family, things go horribly wrong.

Paranormal Activity

The film that was let out of the subgenre of found-footage horror, Paranormal Activity, is regarded as a terror classic. It follows the adventures of a family who’s captured footage of strange activity in their home.

Child’s Play

The movie that launched the genre of horror was Child’s Play, which introduced the character known as Chucky. It became a huge hit and spawned five more series.

The Shining

Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is regarded as one of the most influential terror films of all time. It features Jack Nicholson as Torrence, a man who gets into a violent state of mind.

The Exorcist

The Exorcist is regarded as one of the most successful terror movies ever. It tells the story of a young girl who believes that the devil is holding her.

Rosemary’s Baby

A young couple in New York City is about to become parents, but everything seems to be going awfully wrong. They move into a sinister building.

The Conjuring

The Conjuring is regarded as one of the mega unsettling films ever due to how it was released on the basis of real-life events. It tracks the story of two investigators who sustain a family in their haunted home.

Saw

Another low-budget horror movie from the 2000s, Saw is a serial killer-focused film. Two men are caught in a trap at a psychopath’s home.

Us

Like Get Out, Us tells the story of a family whose lives are disturbed by the strange occurrences around them. It features a stellar cast led by Lupita Nyong’o.

Midsommar

Before she became Amy March, Florence Pugh had already appeared in a folk terror movie called Midsommar. It explores the story of a group of friends who travel to Sweden.
