You'll Never Want to Be Alone After Seeing These Scariest Movies

Time to play spooky!.. This article gives you a list of some of the scariest movies of all time. So start jotting down your favorites, or bookmark this page.
Personally, out of all the movie genres, I am specially fond of watching the scary ones. These flicks never get old, because the scare that they give to your nerves blur your memory. Even if you watch these movies more than once, and know what's gonna happen next, you still feel your heart skipping a beat when you watch that one scene which made you jump out of your skin. Zombies, creepy creatures, blood-drooling monsters, vampire-toothed women do not scare me enough. But what gives me the shudders is the element of surprise, added with some creepy music; something like the whoosh of the wind or the creaking sound of a window. Something like you are on your way to your home. Street lights are out, and the sky is putting up a good lightning show, making things bright for a second and blind, the next. So, while you are walking and humming some happy tune to yourself, suddenly you sense something moving behind you. It feels cold... Now that might make your heart skip a beat. So with much effort you turn to see what is it, and suddenly the lighting cracks, and you see a half-burnt women, smiling at you with her forked-tongue outside!

Won't that scare the hell out of you? Well, it did to me when I watched a similar scene in a movie. Alright, if I have scared you enough, then let us now check out the list of the scariest movies ever.
