Halloween (1978)

Spawning seven sequels and a remake, Halloween marks its 35th year as one of the most remembered horror movies. Especially with the notorious Michael Meyers mask.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without the Freddy Krueger classic. This movie made it hard for everyone to fall asleep. And let’s be honest, we all loved watching a young Johnny Depp run for his life.

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

Although the movie’s footage was apparently fake, it never fails to up the creep factor for  little hesitant to watch scary movies.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

This movie may not have been promoted as a scary movie, but Dr Hannibal Lecter was enough of a scare to convince anyone to never trust an old man that talks about screaming lambs.

Psycho (1960)

Inspired by Wisconsin’s own serial killer Ed Gein, Psycho made it possible to fear something as simple as taking a shower.  Thanks Alfred Hitchcock.
