  1. When someone is chasing you, just keep running. Don't slow down and look behind you to see if you are still being chased. Those victims do it in every movie, horror film or comedy–it doesn't matter.

  2. My personal favorites:
    The conjuring
    It pennywise
    Silence of the lambs
    The first friday the 13th
    Halloween 1978
    Nightmare on elm street
    Texas chainsaw massacre
    The exorsict
    The shining (my fav of all time)
    Alien 1& 2

  3. I couldn’t help but notice that John Carpenter’s The Thing is not on here. That’s a crime against humanity. It’s a great horror movie. Full of suspenseful scenes not knowing who is really the monster and some truly terrifying scenes as well.

  4. #16? 🙏 but 2010s? 🙄 too damn soon smdh…and more, more foreign horror esp 2000s ex. 🇫🇷 (martyrs) 🇯🇵 (audition) 🇪🇸 (rec) 🇰🇷 (I saw the devil)

  6. THE MILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test: Have you ever lied, stolen, or used God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart, and the Bible warns that one day God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law and Jesus paid their fine. This means that God can legally dismiss their case: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent and trust Jesus, and God will give you eternal life as a free gift. Then read the Bible daily and obey it. God will never fail you

  7. Some films that easily could’ve been on the list:

    The evil dead
    Dawn of the dead
    The fly
    It (2017)
    The thing
    The descent
    Train to busan
    Return of the living dead
    American psycho
    The sixth sense
    The Blair witch project
    Black Christmas
    Cannibal Holocaust
    The devils rejects
    Day of the dead
    Bram stoker’s Dracula
    The lost boys
    The burning
    Amityville horror
    John carpenters vampires
    Child’s play
    Ready or not
    The lighthouse
    Henry: portrait of a serial killer
    Cabin in the woods
    Interview with the vampire

  8. My personal favorites are the 1931 Boris Karloff “Frankenstein”, and the 1931 Bela Lugosi “Dracula.” I know they’re not that scary, but Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi were the greatest in my opinion. They’re 1A and 1B on my top 5 list. #2. Would definitely be the Claude Rains 1933 “The Invisible Man.” #3. Is with out a doubt, and I know it’s a comedy, but hey, I’m a sucker for the classics. It’s “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” from 1948, a true comedy classic. #4. The 1953 Vincent Price movie “House of Wax.” Vincent Price is a true horror movie legend, and this is one of, if not the, best of his classic horror films. Last but certainly not least, coming in at #5, it’s the 1935 legendary movie “The Raven” featuring both Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. Bela is my favorite horror movie actor, with Boris Karloff coming in at a close second. This movie pairs up my two favorite actors from the Universal Studios monster movie era. This is a masterful film from the 1930’s monster movie era-gotta watch this one at least once in your lifetime. Just thought I would share a few of my favorites, hope this doesn’t offend anyone. Nobody’s list is truly perfect…GOD bless and take care.✌🏻
