Best Horror Movies Of All Time That Will Send Chills Down Your Spine

If you are interested in the horror genre you may have searched for the best horror movies of all time once in a while. I am also a huge fan of horror movies. The dark backdrop, chilly music, and beautifully executed paranormal stories are all I want on my weekends. However, not every horror movie impresses because some have loopholes in the story and some have very poor direction.

Therefore, I always look for horror movies that are top-rated, at least more than 7 on IMDB. If you are on this page, you must have a liking for horror movies. So let’s take a look at the best horror movies of all time from my personal favorite list so you can experience the chill without getting disappointed.

The Shining

When I talk about horror movies the first movie that comes to my mind is “The Shining”. This psycho-horror movie revolves around an aspiring author and his family who head to a beautiful but isolated hotel in a snow-covered Colorado. As soon as they get there, the psychic sons start to see horrific visions and sinister presences that influence the father to bloodthirsty violence. The Shining has 8.4/10 stars on IMDB and is a must-watch horror movie.

The Thing ( 1982)

This is another masterpiece and one of the unique horror movies. This movie is set in Antarctica and is based on a shapeshifting alien creature. The Thing hunts the US research team and can take the shape of any life form including humans, so no one knows who is possessed by “ The Thing”. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat while the research team is trying to get rid of an escalated crisis. With an IMDB rating of 8.2/10, this is our second-best horror movie of all time.

The Exorcist ( 1973)

This is a classic horror movie with demonic possession. It has some very disturbing scenes so viewers’ discretion is advised. When a visiting actress finds her 12-year-old daughter to be possessed by a demonic entity, she requests help from two catholic priests.
