1. The Ward- This movie is not so much scary as it is weird and mind bending. You never know what to expect and the ending was nothing like I expected.
2. The Original Friday the 13th- the original is way better than the remake, they usually are.
3. The Exorcism of Emily Rose- part exorcism movie and part court room drama, this movie is so unique. I love horror movies based (even loosely) on true stories. You’ll see a lot of those here.
4. Woman in Black- Basic haunting murderous ghost type movie. I really liked Daniel Radcliffe here, even if a lot of people didn’t.
5. Cabin in the Woods- If you didn’t figure it out before, this is a homage/parody of horror films. I love the creativity of this one.
6. The Conjuring- Another “based on a true story” horror film. What I love about this one is how the tension builds, they don’t scare just for scares sake. There’s purpose and thought.
7. Rosemary’s Baby- Classic horror movie, moving on!
8. Orphan- This one is so weird and more creepy than scary. That’s fine with me, I like movies like this better than cheap scare films.
9. Horns- Oh hey Daniel Radcliffe, nice to see you again. Based on Joe Hill’s book, this independent film is whacked! Some people thought it was a bit too weird but I love it.
10. The Haunting in Connecticut- Our last “based on a true story” film. This one gives me the serious creeps in the best way.
