There’s nothing more entertaining than a good slasher-film, psychological thriller or vampire flick – your heart begins racing and the torture of that moment before the bang finally comes or the damsel in distress lets out a blood-curdling scream typically has people squirming in their seats. There are all manners of horror films out there. Some are just as terrible as their cheesy predecessors while others live in our nightmares for the rest of our lives.

This Halloween, check out some of the best horror films on our roster. Read on to find out which movies are on our top shelf.

Halloween (1978)

Let’s start with a classic! While it has to be one of the oldest horror movies on our list with sequels, reboots and remakes under its belts, John Carpenter’s Halloween from 1978 is a total classic. This is the movie that gave Jamie Lee Curtis her big break and there’s nothing in this world that’s more terrifying than a silent, masked and very grown up Michael Myers coming after his prey – he doesn’t even run after his victims. Now, that’s creepy.
