7 Scary Movies That Set The Standard For Horror and Suspense

Orion Pictures/Compass International/Paramount/MGM

Suspense, horror, and sometimes gore are all good elements of the scariest movies.  And regardless of the time of year, for some of us, scary movies are just plain fun.   Plus,  there are so many to choose from.   But, in my opinion there are a handful of movies that changed the definition of suspense and horror, and even changed the way other fright films were made.     These are the ones that stand the test of time, and will always contain those elements, no matter how many times we’ve seen them.

Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho”


For suspense and surprise, it gets no better.

“Friday the 13th”


But you must see the original, not the sequels or remakes.

“Halloween”

This movie set the standard for fright and terror.

“The Amityville Horror”


This one was groundbreaking when it came to special effects.

“The Silence Of The Lambs”

The dialogue alone put it in the running for scariest of all time.

“The Exorcist”


It might be a little difficult to sleep after watching this one.

“The Thing”


Imagine not knowing which of your friends are who they say they are?

So whether it’s one of these, or your favorite movie by Steven King, or any of the dozens of good scary movies, the next week is the best time of year to catch at least one or two.  Enjoy.
