Get Out

In Jordan Peele’s Oscar-winning modern masterpiece, a young black photographer (Daniel Kaluuya) joins his fiancée (Allison Williams) for a visit to her skeptical, Obama-supporting parents’ home and realizes that they can’t be trusted. “The Best Movie Ever Made About American Slavery,” wrote Stephen Thrasher in Esquire.

His House

His House is a well-designed and surprisingly innovative horror-thriller that defies expectations and provides a film unlike any other. The film follows a South Sudanese couple who manage to flee the ravages of war in their homeland, only to arrive in England to find themselves facing a new danger… of the supernatural type.


The scariest movies don’t always have to go for the otherworldly or the grandiose to elicit terror. Put a deep-woods lad on a bridge and give him a banjo, and you’ll send shivers up the spines of a lot of folks. This 1972 picture, starring Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox, describes itself as “an adventure drama,” although the sentence “Squeal like a pig!” begs to disagree.

Train to Busan

Action-horror film from South Korea. Train to Busan is a novel take on the zombie apocalypse, following a father and daughter as they travel across the country by train after learning that a pandemic is overrunning the country.

The Hunt

The Hunt was one of the final films to be released in theatres before the pandemic hit in 2020, so if you don’t remember it, it’s because there was enough real-life terror to distract you. The political satire combines elements of The Hunger Games with liberal elitism and far-right extremism to create a muddled yet deeply troubling portrait of our times. It’s also horrifying, with plenty of gore and brutality thrown in for good measure.

Paranormal Activity series

The spooky supernatural thriller series depicts a young couple haunted by a nightly demonic presence in their home. Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat starred as a couple who set up a camera to discover what horrifies them. It is the most beneficial film ever, and all the series have been critically acclaimed.  

Conjuring series

The conjuring series tells the real dreadful story of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who underwent inadequate events in their farmhouse. It got positive reviews from critics, who applauded the cast’s performances, movie direction, story script, and soundtrack. 

A Quiet Place series

A Quiet Place features a father and a mother who struggle to survive and raise their children in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by blind supernatural demons with an intense sense of hearing. Critics highly acclaim it for its atmosphere, direction, acting, and musical score. 

Insidious series

The insidious film franchise is a horrifying thriller that was originally released in 2010; it demonstrates a family that protects their child (Elise Rainier) from a comatose state in an astral realm known as ‘The Further.’ Finally, she encounters her most frightening time as she returns to her ghostly childhood home from where it all began. 

IT miniseries

In the latter part, they returned as adults and defeated him in 1990. It was telecasted on ABC.

The woman in the Black

The second adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 novel, “The Woman in the black,” was aired in 1989. The storyline is about a widowed lawyer who travels to a village where he observes that the avenging ghost of a scorned woman is threatening the villagers. The critics highly appreciated this movie and the most profitable movie.

The Witch

In 1630, a farmer from New England left his estate and relocated his Puritan family to a remote place near a dark forest. As unusual and distressing things begin to happen, they test each family member’s trust and hope. This film hit the box office and received favorable reviews from critics.

The Babadook

A psychological horror film follows a single mother afflicted by the brutal death of her husband, fights with her son’s terror of a demon in the house, but soon realizes a demonic existence all around her. Based on Kent’s 2005 short film monster. This movie didn’t get a good success.
