My Favourite and Disappointing Horror Movies Of All Time: Friday 13th special

top horror movies

I was planning this post from a long time but thought none would be interested. “What does this beauty blogger know of horror films?” Well quite a lot actually. Its the only genre of movies I dont ever get bored of watching EVER. So today is Friday, the 13th and if I don’t write this today I will not write this ever. I think I’ve done a Ph.D when it comes to nail biting scary fiction. My brother and I watch one horror EVERY NIGHT, beat that! I don’t know how many google searches I’ve made for the “best horror”, “top 10 horror”, “award winning non zombie horror” only to be disappointed later. Sometimes I feel like chopping their heads off who think blood shed+action = horror and thereby waste our 2hrs! I think now I’m qualified enough to make one such list, it won’t disappoint you..promise!

Before we movie ahead first let me be very clear. What is NOT scary?

  • Stupid ashy white zombies with red perennial pimples all over the face.
  • Stupid skeletons dancing around the tress (I’m looking at you Evil Dead)
  • Man in black robes and hood carrying an axe.
  • Jaadu tona and mantar-shantar (thats what every single bollywood horror is comprised of)
  • Exorcism
Top Horror movies:
  • Rec 1 & 2 (a spanish movie shot in a documentary style. A building is quarantined with all the people inside. One by one they are effected by a strange virus which turns them into man-eaters but not like your regular zombies) Loveeee fear it!
  • Quarantine 1 & 2 (english remake of Rec. I first saw this and was so impressed that moved onto Rec)
  • 28 Weeks Later: Well the mass epidemic again! But in this whole of the Britain is effected with those beats running openly in the streets.
  • Dawn of the Dead (2004): again about the mass epidemic. Remake of the 70s series. Worth a watch.
Worth a watch (these are bound to scare you but its just there are others better than them)
  • 28 Days Later: not as good as its sequel but still worth a try.
  • Paranormal Activity: PA 3 was the best in the Paranormal Activity trilogy. Its the fear of unknown that keeps the movie going.
  • The Woman in Black (2012): I kept hallucinating about some black figure the whole night!
  • Mulberry Street (2006)
  • Slither (2006)
  • A Nightmare on the Elm Street (1984)
  • The Shining (1980)

Worst Horror Movies: Oh I can go and on. They wasted my nights when I wanted to be scared to the core. Simply over-rated.

  • Amityville Horror (2005): Once again a new house, new story
  • Friday, the 13 (2009): Ironic!
  • The Ring (2002)
  • The Pact (2012)
  • Saw series
  • Nigh of the Dead (2006)
  • Silence of the Lamb (1991): It was more of psycho thriller but it is listed under most “top 10” horrors. If you are looking to be scared then don’t watch otherwise it’s a good movie. 
  • The Crazies (2010)
  • Resident Evil
  • Halloween (2007)
  • Scream (2011)
  • Alien (1979)
  • The Last Exorcism (2010)
  • The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
  • The Rite (2011)
  • The Omen (2006)
  • Orphan (2009)
  • Shutter series
These are only ones I can remember right now. See the no. of the failed movies I saw. Even the Rotten Tomatoes guys were disappointing in some cases. I’ve 3-4 movies already downloaded to watch this weekend. So bookmark this as I will keep updating the list.
Tip: See those movies only at night, otherwise it kills the fun :P

  1. Loved this post..I’m a big horror movie buff…The Omen still scraes the daylights out of me!..Also liked Skeleton Key

  2. first of all, the post idea is awesome! :D
    i didnt see rec..downloading this one for sure..shining is considered to be one of the best classic horror movies of all time..
    and u disliked silence of the lamb!!!!!! :O :O :O its nt really scary movie type, its more of a psychological thriller and anthony hopkins was simply mind-blowing..and i liked orphan too..it wasnt a horror movie either, bt a thriller..liked the concept..
    and i didnt like resident evil, scream, exorcism and shutter series either..but the ring gave me creeps at the first time.. :P
    btw i never have the guts to watch a horror movie at night..never. :D :P
    my personal favourites wud be the grudge(1&2), triangle and final destination series..seriously, the concept of the final destination was so creepy.. :/

  3. I am like you except that soem of your worst horror movies did scare me….

    My fav movies are (don’t be disgusted):
    1. The exorcism of Emily Rose: based on a real story. it scares the shit out of me.

    2. The ring part I, Part II was a little boring.. but that slithering witch is I can’t see with my open eyes ever.

    3. The Hills Have Eyes (all parts). Those crazy, mutants are horrible. I still believe that such people are somewhere in this world…

    4. The Wrong Turn : Same like The Hills Have Eyes, kind of fun movie.

    5. The Descent – Fun movie to watch with girls as there is a bunch of girls plan to go explore a cave in this movie. They are eaten by some white human like creatures…

    6. The Night at Elm Street : For obvious reasons.

    …I’ll let you know if I remeber more..

    <3

  4. i watched Quarantine one last year and i still get chills.. I will never watch The Hills again.. haunting.. loved Blair Witch one.. Second was funny..I lovedd Silence of the Lambs..all those grudge kind of movies with white painted faces n dark eyes looks the same to me..
    u should never watch horror when feeling down! its horrible to the mind..

  5. @kuheli first of all thank you! silence of lamb is listed under thjose best horror lists dats i was so dissapointed but as a thriller I do like it. i guess u r like me..most of the movies ppl say are horror, we find thriller :P
