There are scary movies and there are SCARY MOVIES. Scary movies are those that make you jump in your seat and cover your eyes (peeping between fingers) when you feel the scary part coming on. SCARY MOVIES (all caps) on the other hand, are those that haunt you long after you’ve left the cinema. They may not have made you scream in terror while you’re munching on your popcorn, but they made you wary shadows in dark alleyways, hold your breath when you hear something creaking in the house, and invade your thoughts when you can’t sleep at night.
Entertainment Weekly has made a list of what they consider to be the 20 Scariest Movies of All Time, and another listing the 20 Top Horror Films Since ’92. Since 40 would be an extremely long list, so you’ll only see 7 in o5‘s list.
