The Scariest Halloween Movies Ever!

While fishing through Halloween Central on, I came across their list of the 5 scariest Halloween movies ever!  The number 1 scariest movie ever, was said to be "The Shining", in the year 1980 starring our favorite Jack Nicholson!

The 2nd movie chosen was 1973 "The Exorcist".
The 3rd scariest movie was 1974 "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".
The 4th movie picked is 1991 "The Silence of The Lambs".
 The #5 scariest movie choice was 1975 "JAWS".

And as I was moving along in my quest to find the scariest movies ever, I came across the following 5 from a site called  Here is their list:

#1 "The Exorcist"

The 2nd movie of choice was l978 "Halloween".
The number 3 movie was 1984 "Nightmare On Elm Street".
Then came #4 with 1979 "The Amityville Horror".
Bringing up #5 scariest movie is 2004 "Saw".

Well, those are pretty good lists.  But how about the old "Dracula" and "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman"?  Those movies were scary to me!  I know, technology, and sound and visual effects have come so far since the 1950's!  I've tried to move up and outward!  I really can't name the SCARIEST MOVIE EVER that I've seen, but I can come close.  The movie "Salem's Lot" written by Stephen King made me sit up and take quick breaths-I would get up every few minutes, leave the room, and then peek around the corner to see if it was safe to go back into the living room.  I couldn't even finish watching it, and had to I had to wait a few more years during a bright sunny day, before I could watch it to the end.  And later, "Nightmare on Elm Street" put me on the edge of the couch within the first 2 minutes of the film.  That's what I get for listening to my son, who was 10 years old at the time-he said it was a pretty cool movie-he had watched it at a friend's house.  I hadn't heard much about the movie, so I rented it.  I came unglued!  And, again, I'm up and down, leaving the room-couldn't watch all of it.  It took me a few years to get through that entire movie and I know I can never watch it again.  

*** So YOU tell me!  What is the SCARIEST movie you've ever seen? *** 

And this is what Mark Twain has to say about that!
"Everyone is a moon and has a dark side, which he never shows to anybody."

  1. Hi Susan ~

    I'd say that the scariest movie for me would be "The Grudge". I still to this day, have not made it thru that whole movie! I have tried and tried to watch it with my youngest Dtr. (who loves scary movies!), but I just can't make it thru it!! ~ I think Amityville Horror & the original Friday the 13th are my very favorite scary movies. As a teen, I loved them! Not so much, anymore! :)

  2. all the ones you mentioned have always been my favorites...well, for SCARY movies...and i DO like horrors!
    and as Becky said...the Grudge is a good one to add to that list also!
    i've seen so many scary movies it's hard to remember the names!
    at the time...the Exorcist really scared me!! AND so did the Nightmare on Elm movies...looking forward to the new one...the remake... :)

    i'll be back if i can think of the name of a couple of good ones!!

  3. OK, you two! I've never heard of the "Grudge". I'll have to look it up and see what it's about. Another one was the first "Hellraiser" movie somewhere in the 1908's. It did have me screaming! And I never watched another one of those. Thanks for stopping by! OOOHH! OOOOHH!

  4. Susan -- There's actually more than one "Grudge" movie. I think there are two. Let me know if you watch one of them and what you think of it!

  5. ok...i'm back...and after a night to think of ALL the horror movies i've seen...(not necessarily in order of scariness!) PSYCHO!! (to this day i have to peak out of the shower curtain! ha! and i agree again...HELLRAISER...Silence of the Lambs...and The Ring.

    watch The's a good creepy one... :)

  6. Glad you ladies came back. I pulled up a trailer on YouTube of "Grudge"...AGHHEE! That looks like a BAD one! I do remember now seeing some previews of that movie. I'll have to get my husband to watch it with me (during the day!) And, yes, PSYCHO-I won't take a shower if I'm alone in the house after dark, and even now, I make sure the doors are locked, just in case my husband falls asleep while I'm in there. Oh, Silence of the Lambs-CLAAARICCEE!

    Thanks Becky and Laura...:)

  7. least i'm not the ONLY one who still has 'psycho fears'!!!

  8. You know, just about every woman I know who saw that movie has 'psycho' fears. That movie came out in 1960, I believe, but I was only 10 or 11 years old, so I know I didn't get to see it until I was at least 14. While watching the movie I didn't feel the fear-just afterwards as I thought more and more and more about it! Give me a bubble bath anytime!

  9. ...i keep coming back here...i thought of something else...other movies that SCARED the ((hell)) outa me!! those CHUCKIE movies...and anything with LIVE DOLLS or MANIAC CLOWNS!!

  10. OMG! I forgot about Chuckie! What a nightmare! My husband says he could dropkick Chuckie before Chuckie could get on him! That movie made me sick...and then they come out with Chuckie's bride! Blood! Blood! and more Blood!

  11. i think if i ever encountered something like CHUCKIE...i wouldn't be able to dropkick him...i'd prob have a heart attack before i could even raise my leg!!

  12. I know what you's like trying to run away, and you fall!
