1. THE RING (2002)
IMDb – 7.1/10
If you want to watch a horror movie with some less big jump scares but equally creepy and horrifying, then I will recommend this one. A perfect storyline with some amazing acting and really creepy scenes make this one a must-watch.
The story is about a young journalist Rachel Keller who goes undercover to investigate about the mysterious death of her niece and three other teens, which is related to a videotape with a myth with it. The myth says that anyone who watches the tape is sure to die within one week of seeing it. But things go wrong when Rachel and her son watch it. If the myth is true, then she should run against time to safe herself and her son!
2. DON’T BREATHE (2016)
IMDb – 7.1/10
Just like the name, the movie is strange but seemingly worth watching. A perfect blend of some horrific scenes, some high jump scares and some mysteries that you-can’t-solve will make you add this film in your must-watch list.
The story revolves around three Detroit thieves who plan to rob a blind man with the huge amount of money he had got because of the death of his daughter in a car accident. As they plan to move to California with the money, the three of them enter the house according to their plan. They gas the man to sleep and begin the quest for money, without knowing the fact that the house is full of horror and mysteries. Will the three of them come out alive from the deadly trap of the blind man (who has so much other capabilities!)? Watch to find the answer. The man can listen everything, so do not breathe!
3. THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (2011)
IMDb – 7/10
It is a film to watch for if you are bored of seeing old and grown-ups in horror movies. It is all about teenagers of course!
The plot tells about five teenage friends who plan to go on a weekend to a cabin in the remote woods for some refreshment. As they reach there, they lose all contacts with the outer world. Everything is correct until the ceiling door flings itself open and the five of them go in to investigate. After finding many old relics and artifacts, one of the friends reads a book which brings a family of zombie killers to life. But things are not the same as they were earlier and there is much more going on than the eye can see!
4. IT CHAPTER ONE AND TWO (2017 and 2019)
IMDb – 7.3 and 6.8/10
This one is strongly not recommended for those who are weak hearted or hate and fear clowns. But believe me, if you want to watch a horror film series to see what horror means, watch these two.
The first installment shows us a city where small children start disappearing mysteriously, and an evil clown is behind it. Seven kids-united by their horrific encounters with the clown-unite themselves, named as the Losers club, and start the fight against the clown to end it. And they are somewhat successful! The second part shows that after being defeated by the seven kids, the evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to haunt the town again, with now being far more powerful. When all the children have grown up, will they be able to reunite, leave their scars of the past behind and end the clown once and for all? Watch it and find out!
5. KRAMPUS (2015)
IMDb – 6.1/10
If you are looking for a horror movie with a little comic hint to it, then you have got one.
The film is about a young boy who lives in a dysfunctional family and has his Christmas ruined, and hence he turns his back on it. As he loses his faith on Christmas, this brings back Krampus-an ancient evil who intends to punish the non-believers-back to life. Soon the festival of joy becomes a nightmare as all merry things get demonic powers of their own. Will the child be able to overcome the odds?
6. THE CONJURING (2013)
IMDb – 7.5/10
Perhaps the most successful and most terrific horror film in the history of Hollywood, and it has its series as well! And the incidents in the film are based on true events.
The plot tells the story of the Perron family who have come to live in a deserted farm house away from the city. Within a few days of their living, strange paranormal incidents start to happen. In desperation, they contact noted paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. And the Warrens find out that the whole area is affected by satanic forces which intent to kill the Perron family. With their power and abilities, will the Warrens be able to save the Perrons? Find out yourself. But be ready for some horrifying jump scares!
7. A QUIET PLACE (2018)
IMDB – 7.5/10
Well, the film is about aliens, but is as horrifying as a ghost horror movie.
The plot tells about a post-apocalyptic Earth, which has been invaded by extra-terrestrial species. These are blind, but can hear the slightest of the sounds. But somehow the Abott family has managed to survive. And it has been a long year since the aliens were last seen. Have they gone?
