Horror/Thriller Recommendations [Updated Regularly]

My two favorite genres.

Here are my favorites, from a broad range of styles and years and ranked to my taste. Mini reviews included.

Use the filters to narrow down the list. Links include relevant films and extra info. I'll be constantly editing this list, as I watch new films or to include classics.

[July. 2016 Note: After some reflection, I've decided I may delete some films from this list. These are supposed to be films that are personal favorites and not just here for public demand. I'd like to keep only films that have held up after repeat viewings or were unique/shocking enough on first viewing to impress me.]

Also, I highly recommend the NoSleep Podcast. There are some truly creepy stories to listen to! I've been binging on the show.

Disclaimer:
Horror films get criticized to death (Define scary). This list only includes films I've seen, and the rankings are from a combo of mainly my preferences in style, production quality, creativity, and acting.

1.
Splice (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Genetic engineers Clive Nicoli and Elsa Kast hope to achieve fame by successfully splicing together the DNA of different animals to create new hybrid animals for medical use. (104 mins.)
Director: Vincenzo Natali
“ A splice of what feels like a sci-fi, drama. If the whole genetic mash-up concept doesn't offend your morals, then I recommend it. It's a pretty unique film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
2.
The Invisible (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A teenager is left invisible to the living after an attack. (102 mins.)
Director: David S. Goyer
“ I consider this family friendly horror with a great soundtrack, attractive young stars, and an obvious pop culture feel. It's pretty low on violence (Hey, it's Disney), and the film carries itself on plot and thrills. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
3.
Come Back to Me (2014)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Sarah and Josh are married suburbanites. After a car accident, Sarah suffers blackouts. As her life spirals she hides a camera in her home and unlocks a horrific secret with far-reaching consequences. (90 mins.)
Director: Paul Leyden
“ Good acting - a bit slow paced, and I have to give some negatives on the directing, but the story is very interesting.
If you've seen the trailer, then you know this the antagonist is an evil John Coffee. It has a "Hand That Rocks the Cradle" kind of feel - 90's thriller mood. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
4.
Death of a Ghost Hunter (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
Renowned "ghost hunter", Carter Simms is paid to conduct a paranormal investigation of a supposedly haunted house. Along with a cameraman, a reporter, and a spiritual advocate, she embarks on a three night journey into terror. (107 mins.)
Director: Sean Tretta
“ A film so low budget that the sound isn't even balanced. Sometimes you can barely hear the actors, and other times it sounds like the mics overloaded. It's based on a true story, but I don't know how closely.

But, among low budget films, with no-name actors, this is a good one. Not super creative, but good. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
5.
Cloverfield (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack. (85 mins.)
Director: Matt Reeves
“ Most found-footage films are low budget with crummy film quality and cheap special effects, but this one has a budget that makes it stand out.

Aside from an annoying camera man, this is a good alien invasion horror with little competition. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
6.
The Divide (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Survivors of a nuclear attack are grouped together for days in the basement of their apartment building, where fear and dwindling supplies wear away at their dynamic. (112 mins.)
Director: Xavier Gens
“ This is a long, dark journey into hopelessness, experienced by the survivors of a nuclear attack.

It's very beautifully filmed, and why people think Xavier Gens' Frontier(s) is a better film, I have no idea.

I claim no responsibility for any suicidal thoughts resulting from watching this film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
7.
Dead Silence (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A young widower returns to his hometown to search for answers to his wife's murder, which may be linked to the ghost of a murdered ventriloquist. (89 mins.)
Director: James Wan
“ If creepy dolls scare you, this is the best American scary doll film I've seen, surpassing the popular classic, Child's Play, which I am not including on this list.

This film made me pretty uncomfortable, and features a resilient protagonist that was fun to watch. Also -- loved the ending. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
8.
Tremors (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Natives of a small isolated town defend themselves against strange underground creatures which are killing them one by one. (96 mins.)
Director: Ron Underwood
“ Great, great film, set in the West, and with a young Kevin Bacon as one of the stars. It's a nice blend of horror and just a pinch of comedy.

Bacon dropped out, after the original, and the sequels never regain the magic, but this is a stand out film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
9.
Mirrors (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An ex-cop and his family are the target of an evil force that is using mirrors as a gateway into their home. (110 mins.)
Director: Alexandre Aja
“ This film is one of the creepiest ghost stories I've seen out of the new millennium, so far. I highly recommend it. The omniscience and malice of the threat had me biting my nails.

The sequel isn't bad but only worth a viewing if you're out of options and not willing to stoop to C and below quality. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
10.
Apartment 143 (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
A team of parapsychologists try to figure out a strange phenomenon occurring in an apartment building. (80 mins.)
Director: Carles Torrens
“ It's ambiguously good, but the acting is pretty solid. I was disappointed by the ending, but it weaves good mystery and drama.

You'll have to be open-minded, for this crawling found-footage ghost tale, but it's better than most low-profile horror. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
11.
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall. (101 mins.)
Director: Zack Snyder
“ Arguably one of Zack Snyder's best films (or THE best). It's a good remake that's been credited as the film that began the "fast zombie" craze of the 2000's.

My favorite thing about this film is Jake Weber who does an excellent job as one of the main protagonists. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
12.
6 Souls (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A female forensic psychiatrist discovers that all of one of her patient's multiple personalities are murder victims. She will have to find out what's happening before her time is finished. (112 mins.)
“ First thought: Jonathan Rhys Meyers does an awesome job in this film, a film that puts A list actors in something that tries to surprise.

The last fifteen minutes of the film turned me from agitation to glee. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
13.
The Wicker Man (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A police sergeant is sent to a Scottish island village in search of a missing girl whom the townsfolk claim never existed. Stranger still are the rites that take place there. (88 mins.)
Director: Robin Hardy
“ A classic. If you haven't seen this film, then you're missing out. This one is gore free, unlike most modern horror. It's all slow-burn creep-factor.

The remake is almost a complete load of crap, but I give it points for the creative, more violent climax. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
14.
The Descent (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators. (99 mins.)
Director: Neil Marshall
“ Some say overrated; I say underrated. It's a dark film (with almost the entirety of it in a cave setting). It stands out with character depth that's rarely a part of modern horror films. You could take the crawly creatures out of this film and it'd still be worth watching.

Avoid the sequel like the plague. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
15.
The Mooring (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.4/10 X  
Every 40 seconds a person goes missing. In northern Idaho, a group of teenage girls attended a summer camp. They were told it would be a summer of change. It was. (90 mins.)
Director: Glenn Withrow
“ This is one that probably went under the radar. It's not a perfect film by any means, but it's strong acting from virtual unknowns. A well-done slasher in the woods film that throws a few emotional punches. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
16.
Grave Encounters (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
For their ghost hunting reality show, a production crew locks themselves inside an abandoned mental hospital that's supposedly haunted - and it might prove to be all too true. (92 mins.)
“ I'm only putting this film on the list, because the sequel is so closely connected that you would be cheating yourself a little, if you didn't watch the first.

The premise is creepy (like something from The Twilight Zone), and while the acting seems a bit lacking, the premise was enough to keep me interested. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
17.
Grave Encounters 2 (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
A film student who is obsessed with the movie Grave Encounters sets out with his friends to visit the psychiatric hospital depicted in the original film. (95 mins.)
Director: John Poliquin
“ Big improvement over the first film. The story is stronger; the acting is better (though the "jock" character's voice may be slightly annoying); the effects are more convincing. They also expand the ideas of the first film and increase the creep factor in the process.

I think there's also a little more violence, in this one, if you're into that. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
18.
The Ring (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it. (115 mins.)
Director: Gore Verbinski
“ These days, this film may be sort of a joke, but this is the film that started to whole Japanese horror remake craze.

It feels like a slow-paced dark mystery; so, if you haven't seen it before, you'll have to be patient with it. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
19.
The Grudge 2 (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X  
Three interwoven stories about a terrible curse. A young woman encounters a malevolent supernatural force while searching for her missing sister in Tokyo; a mean high school prank goes horribly wrong; a woman with a deadly secret moves into a Chicago apartment building. (102 mins.)
Director: Takashi Shimizu
“ So, I saw the first Grudge film, then I saw the Japanese original, and then I saw The Grudge 2. I think this is better than the first film and closer to the Japanese version.

One of those ghosts that likes Red Bull and coffee -- there's never a safe moment. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
20.
The Uninvited (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
Anna Ivers returns home to her sister Alex after a stint in a mental hospital, though her recovery is jeopardized thanks to her cruel stepmother. Her dismay quickly turns to horror when she is visited by ghastly visions of her dead mother. (87 mins.)
“ Based on A Tale of Two Sisters, I think this is a better film. The original was a bit too thick (slow pace, odd, multiple layers).

Emily Browning does a great job with her role. Gore and horror elements are actually pretty minimal, in this one, so it's more about the mystery. Also, the soundtrack is gorgeous. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
21.
The Shining (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future. (146 mins.)
Director: Stanley Kubrick
“ This is a film that is far from the Stephen King novel it's based on, but it does a a great job of being creepy. This film sits almost entirely on the mood created by the increasingly disturbing behavior of Jack Nicholson. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
22.
The Evil Dead (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons. (85 mins.)
Director: Sam Raimi
“ I believe this is Sam Raimi's first film, and it's a cult classic that was remade (and the remake wasn't too bad). It's a little campy, and the effects are old, but I don't feel like that really takes away too much from creep of the story. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
23.
The Others (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A woman who lives in a darkened old house with her two photosensitive children becomes convinced that her family home is haunted. (101 mins.)
“ ...really good ghost film. It's dark and retro -- another of those films that is reliant more on the mood than being gory. So, check it out if you haven't already and if you're interested in a nice ghost film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
24.
Pontypool (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A psychological thriller in which a deadly virus infects a small Ontario town. (93 mins.)
Director: Bruce McDonald
“ This is a zombie flick that does something a little different, and it's probably not for everyone, but I was really impressed how the film handles the premise and generates horror without even venturing from its single location. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
25.
Hostel (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
Three backpackers head to a Slovak city that promises to meet their hedonistic expectations, with no idea of the hell that awaits them. (94 mins.)
Director: Eli Roth
“ Was this the film that began the "torture-porn" phrase and craze? I'm not sure, but it's a gore trip, literally. It's about some guys that are traveling Europe and decide to check out a hostel that's killing its tenants in gruesome ways.

It's like the Saw films, but with a complete disregard for story. It's all about the killin'. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
26.
Hostel: Part II (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Three American college students studying abroad are lured to a Slovakian hostel, and discover the grim reality behind it. (94 mins.)
Director: Eli Roth
“ I prefer this sequel to the original. This film actually drops a little more of a story, and the characters are more interesting. Also, it expands the Hostel universe and picks right up where the first one left off.

The kills are a little less gruesome, but Hostel: Part II is a good follow-up.

Don't bother with Hostel: Part III ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
27.
1408 (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A man who specializes in debunking paranormal occurrences checks into the fabled room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel. Soon after settling in, he confronts genuine terror. (104 mins.)
“ Absolutely great film. It's one of those that has the Hollywood feel, but switches things up enough to not feel like every other horror film to come out of Hollywood.

Samuel L. Jackson's small role is done really well, and I thought John Cusack knocked it out of the park, effectively funny and cynical at once. I think Grave Encounters (especially the second film) snagged ideas from this. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
28.
The Ruins (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they, along with a fellow tourist, embark on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle where something evil lives among the ruins. (90 mins.)
Director: Carter Smith
“ This is a movie that I'd been waiting to see.

When I heard about the film Slither, I thought it would be what this movie is: a really creepy movie about stuff getting under your skin. It's young people going off where they shouldn't be, and most of the film happens in one location, but very good. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
29.
The Broken (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
In London, the radiologist Gina McVey organizes a surprise birthday party to her father John McVey with her boyfriend Stefan Chambers... (93 mins.)
Director: Sean Ellis
“ Here's another film that tackles the idea of doppelgangers, and, to this day, I do not entirely understand this film, but it is well-acted and well creepy. It's one that just eases its way under your skin, and will probably leave you with some questions. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
30.
The Abandoned (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
An adopted woman returns to her home country and the family home that she never knew and must face the mystery that lies there. (99 mins.)
Director: Nacho Cerdà
“ I believe this film is Russian (or just filmed there?), but it's in English. It tackles a concept that I hadn't seen handled in horror, doppelgangers. It wastes almost no time getting into the horror elements. Low on gore, high on creep. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
31.
Silent Hill (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
A woman goes in search for her daughter within the confines of a strange, desolate town called Silent Hill. (125 mins.)
Director: Christophe Gans
“ Silent Hill: Revelations is pretty much crap. This film, while not perfect, has some great acting (except the little girl, sorry) and characterization, and I've never completed any of the games, so I can't compare, but this is genuinely creepy, and it has some unique concepts and deaths. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
32.
Event Horizon (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A rescue crew investigates a spaceship that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned...with someone or something new on-board. (96 mins.)
Director: Paul Anderson
“ Paul W.S. Anderson is on most people's *beep* list, these days, making all those Resident Evil films and, in a lot of people's opinion, having screwed up the AvP film, but this may be his best film.

It's sci-fi horror with the concept of traveling into another horrific dimension. There's a lot of tension building. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
33.
Next Door (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
John has just been left by his girlfriend Ingrid. That day he allows himself to be seduced into a mystical and scary world, where it is impossible to separate truth from the lies (75 mins.)
Director: Pål Sletaune
“ I found this almost accidentally, by browsing Netflix. It's a French language film that's a great psychological thriller with some erotic tint. The main actors are all great, and the ending is pretty twisted. It's tense throughout, with hardly any violence. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
34.
Sphere (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
A spaceship is discovered under three hundred years' worth of coral growth at the bottom of the ocean. (134 mins.)
Director: Barry Levinson
“ To be honest, when I first saw this film, it went over my head, but I figured it out, eventually. The presence of the strange sphere and the concept, along with the mood makes this a very creepy film, for me. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
35.
Phantoms (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
150 dead and 350 missing in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, Colorado. And that's only the beginning... (96 mins.)
Director: Joe Chappelle
“ I'm not the happiest about Ben Affleck, in this film, but the creature of this film is really creepy. It's a bit reminiscent of The Thing and maybe Sphere. From the start, the characters seem to be in over their heads. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
36.
Splinter (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror. (82 mins.)
Director: Toby Wilkins
“ A low-budget horror with creativity. It effectively creates a very unique monster.

Most of the film happens within a gas station -- really good stuff. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
37.
The Last Exorcism (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A troubled evangelical minister agrees to let his last exorcism be filmed by a documentary crew. (87 mins.)
Director: Daniel Stamm
“ My closest family actually hate this film and found it unbearably boring, but I love it.

If the characters don't sell the film for you, then just stop the movie, because it probably won't get any better. The film is like The Blair Witch Project, very dependent on you being interested in the characters and suspending disbelief (feeling that the story is real) and being intrigued about where all of this is going, because there are hardly any scares. It feels like a drama, until close to the end, and your enjoyment almost rests completely on how satisfied you are with the conclusion. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
38.
The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods. (95 mins.)
Director: Drew Goddard
“ A horror film that is kind of a commentary on the horror genre itself. It's a bit campy, but it does have scary scenes, and it's worth watching -- some unique things going on, in this one.

It's not one of my favorites, but it's unique enough that I couldn't skip it. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
39.
V/H/S (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
When a group of misfits are hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more found footage than they bargained for. (116 mins.)
“ I was very excited, after watching this film, because I'm not familiar with many horror anthologies. In fact, the only ones I can remember are classic films.

Underrated compilation of 6 found footage horror shorts; I used to play this on repeat. I wouldn't say any of the stories are especially original, but the found-footage format adds a nice dimension to them.

V/H/S 2 is not as good, imo, but it included one or two that are definitely worth watching, and they tried to push the format a little more. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
40.
I Spit on Your Grave (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A writer who is brutalized during her cabin retreat seeks revenge on her attackers, who left her for dead. (108 mins.)
“ Personally, I think this is way better than the original (which was pretty boring). This is a revenge horror filck, and the revenge is very sweet. The movie doesn't waste much time getting into the tension and action.

I don't recommend this for a night with the girlfriend, because of the scene leading up to the revenge, but--great movie. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
41.
The Midnight Meat Train (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A photographer, Leon's obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer, Mahogany, the subway murderer who stalks late night commuters, ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable. (98 mins.)
“ This is a very tense and dark film that is also pretty gory (a bit comically so). Vinnie Jones is creepy without saying anything.

If you like your horror just plain dark, without the cheerful moments, then this is that type of film. It feels like a modern torch barer for classic horror. It's basic story + gore. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
42.
Wolf Creek (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
Three backpackers stranded in the Australian outback are befriended by a local who turns out to be a sadistic psychopath and will plunge them into a hellish nightmare of insufferable torture. (99 mins.)
Director: Greg Mclean
“ This is probably one of the earliest low budget and foreign horror films I watched, and I think it's underrated. It's basically a slasher film but with a great villain and some disturbing scenes. It's one that breaks conventions a little. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
43.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
After picking up a traumatized young hitchhiker, five friends find themselves stalked and hunted by a deformed chainsaw-wielding killer and his family of equally psychopathic killers. (98 mins.)
Director: Marcus Nispel
“ Good remake. It may be better than the original, but I haven't seen that one in so long. There's some brutal stuff in this one. And, just for the record, Leatherface never existed (despite what the film wants you to believe). He's based on Ed Gein.

Very pop horror feel, with young stars. Popcorn movie.
Stay away from the thirty-ninth anniversary re-remake edition. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
44.
28 Weeks Later (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan. (100 mins.)
“ The first film, 28 Days Later, was nice, but I much prefer the action of this film (an early member of the "fast zombie" craze).

The opening sequence is, without a doubt, one of the most intense I've ever seen in any horror film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
45.
Stir of Echoes (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
After being hypnotized by his sister in law, a man begins seeing haunting visions of a girl's ghost and a mystery begins to unfold around him. (99 mins.)
Director: David Koepp
“ Overshadowed by the success of the Sixth Sense, this film follows a similar concept (and loosely based on a novel). The film stands on Kevin Bacon's strong performance as he unravels. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
46.
Misery (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
After a famous author is rescued from a car crash by a fan of his novels, he comes to realize that the care he is receiving is only the beginning of a nightmare of captivity and abuse. (107 mins.)
Director: Rob Reiner
“ Great Stephen King adaptation, full of suspense. You just never know what obsessed Annie is gonna do next. She even makes the top 20 of AFI's centennial list of greatest villains.

I strongly recommend this, if you haven't seen it. ” - Cinique LeNoir

Director: Ridley Scott
“ Classic. Haven't seen it? You need to (and that's true for all the classic films on this list)

Pretty much every sci-horror in space has been inspired by this film, and it's really well done. ” - Cinique LeNoir

Aliens (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough? (137 mins.)
Director: James Cameron
“ I think this one is just as good as the first Alien film, but this one ramps up the action, with space marines to take on the xenomorphs. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
49.
Martyrs (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity. (99 mins.)
Director: Pascal Laugier
“ I think I saw a review that called this "torture porn at its finest".

The film is dark from the beginning, but it teases you with hope, then eye rapes you for the rest of the film. I'm sure there are more violent, disturbing films out there, but they're probably banned in America. It's not just the violence, but the closing philosophy of it all. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
50.
Eden Lake (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Refusing to let anything spoil their romantic weekend break, a young couple confront a gang of loutish youths with terrifyingly brutal consequences. (91 mins.)
Director: James Watkins
“ This is a suspenseful film, with a quick start. Some punk kids ruin a couples vacation and cue the violence.

The acting is great, and by the end, I felt like I'd just been suffocated. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
51.
The Burrowers (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
In the Wild West a rescue party sets out to find a family of settlers that has vanished from their home under mysterious circumstances. (96 mins.)
Director: J.T. Petty
“ Good weird west films seem hard to come by.

Two words: "buried alive".

It's fun to watch these tobacco spitters crapping their pants. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
52.
Black Swan (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
A committed dancer wins the lead role in a production of Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" only to find herself struggling to maintain her sanity. (108 mins.)
“ An independent film. Who knew!?

It's a psychological thriller, and a creepy one. Natalie Portman does an excellent job -- at kissing Mila Kunis.

No, but, seriously, she's great in this and put in a lot of dedication. Besides all that, still a great film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
53.
The Crazies (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
About the inhabitants of a small Iowa town suddenly plagued by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply. (101 mins.)
Director: Breck Eisner
“ I put this film on par with Dawn of the Dead and I Spit on Your Grave. It's a really good remake, and it feels very Hollywood. All the acting is solid. It's got the thrills and jumps and violence. If you haven't seen it, then it's a perfect popcorn horror film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
54.
The Fourth Kind (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A thriller involving an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover up. (98 mins.)
“ I saw this film four years after its release, and it actually ruined my sleep for that night, which doesn't usually happen to me. I can usually handle horror films well, so I'm not sure why this one got to me.

The film is presented like a documentary combined with reenactments by Milla Jovavaich and company, which is unique, but it's falsely marketed. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
55.
Zombieland (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America. (88 mins.)
Director: Ruben Fleischer
“ If you haven't seen this, I don't know why. See it now!

Ho-co, very funny, even has a Bill Murray cameo. There's a little gore, but it's ultimately a very pop-flavored horror-comedy film that might easily be the best of the year, if Jennifer's Body hadn't dropped the same year. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
56.
Teeth (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Still a stranger to her own body, a high school student discovers she has a physical advantage when she becomes the object of male violence. (94 mins.)
“ Indie sleeper hit?

It's a ho-co and stars mostly people I've never heard of before, and it's soo good. The premise will probably either turn you away, or draw you in, but it's done well.

The horror is extremely light. This is almost entirely comedy, except that it's just too damn weird to not be a little creepy. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
57.
Jennifer's Body (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X

Director: Karyn Kusama
“ Ho-co (Horror comedy), lol. Diablo Cody, I love you.

Regardless of what you think of Megan Fox, this is a totally awesome film. It's creepy; it's hilarious, and ultimately very cool. This one may surprise you. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
58.
Quarantine (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
A television reporter and her cameraman are trapped inside a building quarantined by the CDC, after the outbreak of a mysterious virus which turns humans into bloodthirsty killers. (89 mins.)
“ An extremely faithful remake of the spanish film [REC] (seriously, the film is almost an exact duplicate with American actors), it's the best (or one of the best) of the found-footage zombie films that I've seen.

This film also has a lower budget sequel that was decent, but a drop in quality in practically every way. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
59.
Let the Right One In (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Oskar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl. (115 mins.)
Director: Tomas Alfredson
“ If you don't like subtitles, watch Let Me In. It's a good remake, staring Chloë Moretz, but I think I prefer the Swedish actress.

It's a unique vampire film, focused on the perspective of a preteen. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
60.
Rogue (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An American journalist on assignment in the Australian outback encounters a man-eating crocodile while trapped on a rapidly flooding mud island. (99 mins.)
“ If you like "creature-features", this one is a good crock flick. It features Radha Michell who sheds her fake American accent and shows her tough aussie side. John Jarratt (Wolf Creek), and Sam Worthington (Avatar) also have small parts in the film.

It's the acting that keeps this from being just a typical, crappy creature-feature. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
61.
Masters of Horror (2005 TV Series)
Episode: Sick Girl (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A story about an evil bug with the ability to change people's behavior, a commentary on the dangers of moving into a relationship too quickly. (60 mins.)
“ The Masters of Horror series featured some gems, and this is one of them, directed by Lucky McKee (May). It's a pretty dang gross film, as the title may imply. It makes me icky, just thinking about it.

Don't bring any strange bugs into your house. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
62.
Masters of Horror (2005 TV Series)
Episode: Sounds Like (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
Deeply affected by a personal tragedy, an office drone comes to realize his sense of hearing has taken on extraordinary capabilities that could drive him insane. (60 mins.)
“ This is a film (or episode) that does a great job at setting a mood, and it feels very Twilight Zone.

The main character somehow develops super hearing, which, instead of making him feel super, starts causing serious issues in his personal life.

It's a creepy story. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
63.
Masters of Horror (2005 TV Series)
Episode: Imprint (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X

“ I told you, Asian horror stuff doesn't play around, lol.

This film includes a really terrible story of torture and a pretty twisted ending that I didn't see coming -- very recommended. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
64.
Masters of Horror (2005 TV Series)
Episode: Deer Woman (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
A harried, burned-out cop believes that a recent string of murders prove that the murderer might be a deer-like creature in the form of a beautiful woman right from a local Native America folklore legend. (60 mins.)
“ I consider this horror-comedy. It has what feels like an abrupt ending, but it's pretty darn interesting and funny to that point. I love the lead actor, and I still make fun of the scene where he takes it to the chest (watch and you'll see what I mean). ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
65.
The Return (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.8/10 X  
Joanna Mills, a traveling business woman, begins having nightmares of a murder that occurred 15 years ago. Soon she is drawn to an old farmhouse, where the murder took place. (85 mins.)
Director: Asif Kapadia
“ This one is all mood and creep, and it's a little deep. I was actually a bit confused, after my first viewing, but seeing it a second time and watching the special features helped me really appreciate the film. I think it's very well done, despite the imdb rating (grrrr). ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
66.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A boy who communicates with spirits that don't know they're dead seeks the help of a disheartened child psychologist. (107 mins.)
“ Personally, I never found this film scary, but it is about ghosts and, if you haven't seen it, then you should.

This is the film that made surprise endings popular in the 2000's and gave M. Night Shyamalan his short lived popularity. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
67.
Vanishing on 7th Street (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
The population of Detroit has almost completely disappeared, but a few remain. As daylight disappears they realize that the Dark is coming for them. (92 mins.)
Director: Brad Anderson
“ I'm baffled why this film has such a low rating on imdb, but it's a genuinely very creepy film with a scary and mysterious premise. The film feels shorter than it is, and there's no explanation for the events; it's the shadows coming to get you, and it works well. The whole film, everyone is just trying to survive. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
68.
What Lies Beneath (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
The wife of a university research scientist believes that her lakeside Vermont home is haunted by a ghost - or that she is losing her mind. (130 mins.)
Director: Robert Zemeckis
“ Hollywood getting it right. Very good film. Not giving any spoilers, just watch it. It's a little more on the thriller side than horror. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
69.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
When Cyrus Kriticos, a very rich collector of unique things dies, he leaves it all to his nephew and his family. All including his house, his fortune, and his malicious collection of ghosts! (91 mins.)
Director: Steve Beck
“ When I first saw this film, it scared the [spoiler]fookin' *beep* out of me, but now I consider it kind of a fun, gory film. I wouldn't consider it scary as much as fun frightening in the way of Cabin in the Woods. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
70.
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A writer is stalked by a serial killer after witnessing a murder attempt on one woman's life. (98 mins.)
Director: Dario Argento
“ This is one that is more along the lines of a dark mystery film. It's a classic, and it feels very classic, but the mood is great and effectively creepy. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
71.
Black Christmas (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
An escaped maniac returns to his childhood home on Christmas Eve, which is now a sorority house, and begins to murder the sorority sisters one by one. (84 mins.)
Director: Glen Morgan
“ I don't think I've ever seen the original, so I can't make a comparison, but this film is a total gore fest. It's one of the grossest films I've seen from the 2000's. I'm recommending it mainly based on the vicious kills. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
72.
Friday the 13th (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
A group of camp counselors is stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child's drowning. (95 mins.)
“ Of course I had to put this one on the list. It's better than the remakes, although the 2009 remake added speed, mass, and sound effects that made the whole ordeal feel more intense. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
73.
The Fog (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Legend says that Antonio Bay was built in 1880 with blood money obtained from shipwrecked lepers which no one believes. On the eve of the town's centennial, many plan to attend the celebrations, including the murdered lepers. (89 mins.)
Director: John Carpenter
“ This original is sooo much better than the remake, with Superman -- I mean, Tom Welling. The Mist may have gotten a few ideas from this one, but it's the actual fog that's the threat here. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
74.
Scanners (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A scientist sends a man with extraordinary psychic powers to hunt others like him. (103 mins.)
“ I haven't seen this film in forever, and I can't comment on how good the sequels are, BUT this is a definitely good 80's horror from a guy that makes creepy films, Cronenberg. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
75.
Videodrome (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A sleazy cable-TV programmer begins to see his life and the future of media spin out of control in a very unusual fashion when he acquires a new kind of programming for his station. (87 mins.)
“ There may be a remake of this film coming, and I'm not sure it'll live up to this one. This is a seriously creepy mind screw of a film about a radio station that warps your reality. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
76.
The Signal (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A horror film told in three parts, from three perspectives, in which a mysterious transmission that turns people into killers invades every cell phone, radio, and television. (103 mins.)
“ A 2007 fave. I feel it's underrated. The film is actually split into sections done by three different directors, but I couldn't tell (I didn't find this out until later). It's sort of a zombie film about a signal that is being broadcast through electronic devices, and it's driving people mad.

The second "broadcast" really puts you into the mind of the infected, and that's something I'd never seen before. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
77.
Silent House (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.3/10 X  
A girl is trapped inside her family's lakeside retreat and becomes unable to contact the outside world as supernatural forces haunt the house with mysterious energy and consequences. (86 mins.)
“ The story of this film is not special, at all, but the style of it is really awesome. It feels like you're walking near the characters in this house that is...silent. (There is barely any music used in the film)

Points for style. It's a pretty creepy film, for that. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
78.
The Thing (1982)

It's the first week of winter in 1982. An American Research Base is greeted by an alien force, that can assimilate anything it touches. It's up to the members to stay alive, and be sure of who is human, and who has become one of the Things. (109 mins.)
Director: John Carpenter
“ Gross film, with some great characters, and it's just totally creepy. There's a mood of paranoia here that I haven't seen in many other films. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
79.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
At an Antarctica research site, the discovery of an alien craft leads to a confrontation between graduate student Kate Lloyd and scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson. (103 mins.)
“ This is like a remake/prequel, and it may not be quite up to the first film, but it is pretty darn good; so, I recommend it if you've been avoiding it, but definitely watch the original first. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
80.
Predator (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior. (107 mins.)
Director: John McTiernan
“ This film could almost pass for action, but it has an obvious horror side to it. I consider it practically flawless, and it doesn't even feel like its aged much. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
81.

Director: Stephen Hopkins
“ I like this just as much as the first Predator film, and my older brother prefers it, because Danny Glover is more of an underdog than the extremely buff Arnold Schwarzenegger. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
82.
Hellraiser (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
An unfaithful wife encounters the zombie of her dead lover; demons are pursuing him after he escaped their sadomasochistic underworld. (94 mins.)
Director: Clive Barker
“ The S&M horror flick (lol). I love Ashley Lawrence! She's got sexy, innocent and sincere, all in one.

The whole Hell kills the curious cat idea is just creepy, and it's a gory flick.

Welcome to Hades kids! :o ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
83.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X

Director: Tony Randel
“ This film may be a little less awesome than the first, but it is still totally creepy, and this time Pinhead has some competition.

"The doctor is in." ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
84.

A shady police detective becomes embroiled in a strange world of murder, sadism and madness after being assigned a murder investigation against a madman known only as "The Engineer". (99 mins.)
“ There were some missteps in the Hellraiser series, but I think this film is incredibly scary.

It's different from every Hellraiser film before it, taking the form of a sort of mystery/noir film, but it gets Hellacious later. I might even call this my favorite Hellraiser film. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
85.
Jacob's Ladder (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X

“ Ah yes, the film that scarred my childhood. It's a long film, and it's a good one. Pennywise may make you afraid of clowns, if you aren't already. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
87.

or not. ” - Cinique LeNoir

90.
Cube (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
6 complete strangers of widely varying personality characteristics are involuntarily placed in an endless kafkaesque maze containing deadly traps. (90 mins.)
Director: Vincenzo Natali
“ It's such a good film. I think this is sorta like Saw, before Saw, because it has characters waking up in a strange place and, in a way, being subjected to torture. It completely leaves you in mystery, but it's all about the struggle of these characters trying to escape, and the tension between them. ” - Cinique LeNoir
 
91.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A game designer on the run from assassins must play her latest virtual reality creation with a marketing trainee to determine if the game has been damaged. (97 mins.)

92.

Two psychopathic young men take a family hostage in their cabin. (111 mins.)
Director: Michael Haneke
“ I haven't seen the original film, but I was very into this remake. It's a pretty quiet film (similar to Silent House), and it has a darkly comic feel to it. All the acting is great. Really good movie. ” - Cinique LeNoir

A wealthy New York investment banking executive hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he delves deeper into his violent, hedonistic fantasies. (102 mins.)

Director: James Wong
“ In this, the last good film in the Final Destination series, the story regains a bit of depth to the characters and subjects you to more creative kills.

My favorite part of this film (which, for me, makes it top the original) is the ambiguous ending. ” - Cinique LeNoir
