Horror movies, though designed to unsettle, frighten, and panic us, awaken the worst fears hidden deep in our hearts, alarm and create fear, shock, captivate, mesmerize, and entertain us all at the same time. The strange and forbidden, darker side of life which it portrays, captures our wildest dreams and gives us a glimpse of the unknown. Many of us have seen horror movies in theaters or rented DVDs of the same. But what makes watching these movies so interesting is the fact that how they try to thrill us every time.

Killer madman, zombies, ghosts, Dracula, Satan, aliens, vampires, witches, and sometimes supernatural powers make these movies worth watching. Today, technology and computer graphics has changed how we view this concept of scaring people differently. But these advantages weren't available for many, back in the days. And still, directors have made some of the best old horror films of all time.
