Best In Class: Scary Movies

Sort by: Showing 26 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 819 Average listal rating (495 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.5
Winner : Best Vampire

Dreamy, handsome vampires with great clothes and perfect hair are all the rage these days. Yet old-school horror mavens know that vampires should look like death warmed over. F. W. Murnau's 1922 classic featured the seriously spooky Max Schrek as the fearsome bloodsucking count, but he didn't have the freakish intensity of Klaus Kinski in Werner Herzog's remake.

Near Dark (1988)
Runner-up : Best Vampire
People who added this item 6419 Average listal rating (4445 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4
The Shining (1980)
Winner : Best Haunted House

Helpful hint: If you're planning to work as a caretaker for a beautiful, if isolated, hotel over the winter, make sure it wasn't the site of a familial bloodbath the previous season. The ghosts are sure to interfere with marital harmony and that elevator of blood is a real pain to clean up.

Jaws (1975)
Winner : Killer Animals

Basically, a shark is a razor-sharp set of teeth with fins. It's an animal that looks like it was thought up by some demented Hollywood production designer. So it isn't surprising that tinseltown turned a Great White into one of the scariest bad guys ever to hit the big screen.

The Birds (1963)
Runner-up : Killer Animals
People who added this item 4691 Average listal rating (3304 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.4
Alien (1979)
Winner : Alien

There's been a long history in movies of creatures from outer space freaking out the good citizens of earth -- from Gort, the robotic enforcer in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" to the burger-shilling extra-terrestrial in "Mac and Me." But few creatures have been as terrifying as the snarling, acid-bleeding, astronaut killing machine found in "Alien."

Godzilla (1954)
Winner : Best Giant Monster

Since World War II, Japan has been plagued by an epidemic of massive rubbery creatures who can flatten a city in less time than it takes to get a pizza delivered. But hands down, the granddaddy of the Tokyo trashers is that fire-breathing lizard from under the sea.

Cloverfield (2008)
Runner-up : Best Giant Monster
People who added this item 6500 Average listal rating (4563 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.6
Winner : Best Cannibal

Cannibalism is generally regarded as only slightly less reprehensible than working as a health insurance executive. But Hannibal Lecter snacks on his fellow man with such aplomb. After all, anyone can eat a liver. Only Lecter would serve it with fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Winner : Evil Child

In today's real estate market, you may have to make a metaphorical "deal with the devil" to get a good deal on a great apartment. Rosemary, on the other hand, found out too late that her husband made a literal one.

The Exorcist (1973)
Runner-up : Evil Child
People who added this item 1386 Average listal rating (901 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
Winner : Werewolf

Think about how much turning into a werewolf would hurt: hands stretching into paws, face contorting into a lupine features, teeth sharpening into fangs. John Landis' "American Werewolf in London" captured the pain of transformation, but also the regret that comes from changing back.

The Howling (1981)
Runner-up : Werewolf
People who added this item 1734 Average listal rating (1128 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
Winner : Zombies (slow)

George Romero's 1968 low-budget masterpiece set the standard for movie zombies. Those slow, shuffling reanimated corpse were frightening because of their relentless thirst for human flesh, not because they could out run Usain Bolt.

Runner-up : Zombies (slow)
People who added this item 3613 Average listal rating (2431 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.6
28 Days Later (2002)
Winner : Zombies (fast)

Though purists might scoff at Danny Boyle's vision of zombies as mindless disease victims with anger management problems, the movie, and its unnervingly realistic vision of the zombie apocalypse, is unquestionably frightening.

Runner-up : Zombies (fast)
People who added this item 2430 Average listal rating (1654 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.7
Halloween (1978)
Winner : Masked Killer

Take a latex Captain Kirk mask, paint it white, mess up the hair, and put it on a silently lumbering maniac. What you've got is both the originator of the "slasher" genre and still the best one ever made.
People who added this item 3398 Average listal rating (2245 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.2
Scream (1996)
Runner-up : Masked Killer

Winner : Supernatural Boogeyman

A masked chainsaw-wielding psychopath is plenty scary, but with a little planning and forethought -- some mace, a well-hidden weapon, years of kung fu training -- you can, in theory, take them out. But how do you fight against a pizza-faced crazy who lives inside your dreams? A six-pack of Red Bull can keep you awake for only so long.
