10. The Texas Chainsaw (1974)
It is undoubtedly a bone-chilling movie of lots of indescribable thrills. On a lighter note, this movie made the chainsaw machines popular, in a good way though. So, we should say Stihl, and all other brands should be thankful of this movie. No, seriously, the history of chainsaw takes credit to this movie as it opened the doors for them to be widely known.
Well, who could forget this movie? Who could forget the sadistic serial killer Jigsaw? It is when we thought of trying to figure out how to get out from the trap as if we were part of the movie.
This movie is probably among the most well-celebrated horror movies of all time as big stars lead the role such as Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Drew Barrymore starred the sequels of this movie. A series of parodies were even made for this movie.
7. The Silence of the Lambs
This is a brilliant film that starred two well-respected actors in the industry Jodie Foster and Sir Anthony Hopkins. What makes the movie terrifying? It is not about the scary faces or the haunted places, but the clear point out of great acting skills of the two lead stars, and not to mention a brilliant psychiatrist who eats human flesh. That's not scary but definitely gross.
This movie received several sequels or remakes, but the one that really made a super blockbuster hit in the cinema is the original version in 1960.
Do we need to say more? This movie made Sigourney Weaver extremely popular as she battled out all the aliens in the deep space.

This Wes Craven's classic indie slasher film made the name Freddy Krueger a terrifying character who preys on the teenagers in their dreams and in turn, kills them in reality.
3. The Shining
This movie is an all time favorite horror movie that starred Jack Nicholson who portrayed the role of Jack Torrance that is based on the highly acclaimed novel by Stephen King. The latter took the job offer as a winter caretaker in Overlook Hotel, an isolated area in Colorado. He hoped to cure his writer's block by taking the job. However, unexpected and horrifying turn out of events changed his life and his family.
This Halloween inspired film of the 1978 box office hit topped by big stars such as Jamie Lee Curtis.
1. The Exorcist
True to its number, this horror movie surely top-billed the list as it has received an Academy Award for Best Writing Adapted Screenplay and other prestigious awards for its frightening storyline and cinematography.
