  1. Again if they think the American version of the Ring Is scary then I need to watch the Japanese version it’s more scary

  2. If they really think that the grudge American version scary I knew to watch the Japanese version

  3. Okay, how did you mess this up? The honorable mentions were scarier than #2 through #10. Insidious is the only real #’d one that was scary, let alone PROPER HORROR!

  4. Insidious remains the scariest movie I’ve ever seen. And saying to me “you must not watch a lot of horror movies” will not work, as I have seen MANY. But Insidious still contains some of the most effective jump scares and chilling imagery I’ve ever seen.

  5. The Others is definitely a must watch film. The ending is totally mind blowing that will sink in to you after a couple of days of watching it. Sometimes, horror films are a lot scarier when they deliver a great story than those with cheap jumpscares and gore. Totally brilliant

  6. 1408 should be on this list instead of that awful/boring “Mothman” movie…and or Signs! >:(
