What better way than to crawl up on the couch with a horror movie? If you are a horror movie fan, you will love our list of 10 iconic horror movies that everyone should have seen.

Have you watched them all?

The Shining (1980)

Directed by: Stanley Kubrick, based on Stephen King’s novel Alert (1977). King didn’t like the movie. The movie does not follow the book. Still, the movie is horrilble. ┬áJack Nicholson plays Jack Torrance, a sober alcoholic, an unsuccessful writer, takes a job as a caretaker/janitor at a remote hotel. Unfortunately, the scene where a woman rots in the bathtub is never forgotten.

Tenant (1976)

Script and director: Roman Polanski, who plays the paranoid tenant Trelkovsky who moves into a Paris apartment where Simen Cholue committed suicide. One of Polanski’s best films. Unbearably unpleasant.

The Exorcists (1973)

Directed by William Friedkin. Classic. Based on a real case of exorcism that took place in 1939. Max von Sydow plays the father of the exorcist, the father of Lankester Merrin. Who is not afraid of a little girl who can turn her head around and around and around.

The Ring (2002)

Directed by Gore Verbinski. People strangely die seven days after watching a videotape that has a curse on them. A journalist’s niece belongs to the victims and journalist, Rachel Kellers, has seven days to solve the riddle, otherwise, she is next in line.

The Sixth sense (1999)

Directed by: M Night Shyamalan. More creeping excitement than pure horror. Perfectly scary for viewers with a fear of darkness.

Halloween (1978)

The horror genre’s horror classic. John Carpenter’s breakthrough film. Jamie Lee Curtis In the lead role. The movie’s thing is that Carpenter lets the camera go the killer’s way. There are several worse sequels.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Directed by: Wes Craven. Teenagers who can’t fall asleep – then Freddy takes them.

Gaslight (1944)

Directed by: George Cukor. Paula Alquist (Ingrid Bergman) experiences unpleasant things that make her husband think she is insane. But it is the man behind the events.

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962)

Directed by Robert Aldrich. Bette Davis on parade as scary killer and torturer of her sister. Classic scene with a nice dinner plate with rat among the vegetables under the silver cup – instead of steak. Got an Oscar for best suit.
