Top World’s Most Scariest Movies

Last Updated on October 6, 2021 by

Want to see the scariest movie in the world? Are you really sure? Think through the answer again before you read on for our list of some of the world’s most scary movies. All of the movies on this list are insanely scary, so just a word of caution.

Funny Games

Funny Games is about a family that goes on vacation and meets two seemingly harmless guys, who have golf clubs.

Brain dead

This movie is not particularly scary really it’s just sick! Peter Jackson’s early film about a sick virus spread by a rat. This movie is sickly gory and really bizarre.


Caligula is sickly bizarre and is banned in most countries. It acts like Emperor Caligula and his sick adventures. Sex and violence summarize it quite well.

Cannibal Holocaust

This is an absolutely awful movie. It is actually so bad that the director was prosecuted and persecuted when it came out. The murders and tortures in the film seemed so real that he had to explain to a jury in detail how he recorded the film to escape prison. The film is about a bunch of documentary filmmakers who go out into the jungle to document a known cannibal tribe and yes … You hear what direction it will go.

A Serbian Film

This movie is sickly creepy and utterly disgusting. The film is about Milos, a sacked porn actress who gets the offer to participate in one last movie that will make him extremely wealthy. However, the price is high! This movie promises some of the sickest scenes you’ll ever experience and it’s a mystery how it even got released.

Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom

This movie is sick! Salo is about a bunch of high ranking officers during the last days of Italy’s fascism. The officers know they will soon face trial and decide to live out their craziest sexual fantasies. They, therefore, gather a bunch of young girls and boys to perform insane things.


This film is absolutely bizarre. Dogtooth is about three siblings who are held captive by a really sick couple. Physical and mental terror are promised.


Darren Aronofsky’s symbolically charged home invasion horror is a real water divider. Defenders dismiss it as pretentious cringe-trams while admirers praise it as a mind-boggling masterpiece. Javier Bardem plays the cramped cultural man who lives a withdrawn life in the Kirchsteigerified dream home with his unnamed wife, played by Jennifer Lawrence. The arrival of an uninvited couple, masterfully played by Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris, breaks the everyday slump. And then everything goes to hell. Literally. A surreal, tumultuous and limitless movie experience that leaves no untouched, no matter what you think of the end result.

It Comes at Night (2017)

This movie is a post-apocalyptic chamber game about a virus-ravaged world, an isolated family, and how far man is prepared to go to survive. A minimalist anxiety trip from the first to the last frame.

The Girl with All the Gifts (2016)

When a fungal disease turns the majority of humanity into bloodthirsty zombies, a gang of survivors flee along with a 10-year-old zombie girl, whose mysterious resilience may be the key to a cure.

Scream (1996)

The Halloween mask’s Halloween mask is taken from Wes Craven’s big comeback Scream. 90’s freaks, sharp knives, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell. Scream deserves its classic status.

Goodnight Mommy

It’s always fun with an unexpected act! Beauty surgeries aren’t the most common gripe in the horror movie genre, but they weigh that up by using the classic twin trick.

The film is about a pair of twin brothers who recently moved to a new house with their mother. She has recently undergone a beauty operation and has her face covered in bandage, but the boys are beginning to notice that it is not just her face that seems to have undergone a change.


When it is not the house that is haunted, but even the child – what do you do? Yes, everything you can do. And that’s exactly what actor Patrick Wilson does in Insidious.

The film is about a family where one of the sons is involved in an accident and ends up in a coma. When the boy comes home from the hospital, a series of scary things begin to happen and soon they are in the worst of nightmares.
