Here’s a list of the top 3 horror films of all time.
One of the most influential, classic, psycho-horror thrillers, “Psycho” pretty much set all the standards, wrote the playbook, by which most thrillers work. Hitchcock delivers a wonderful mix of psychotic and suspenseful writing with some of the most memorable iconic scenes in the history of Cinema.
Freddy Krueger became a household horror name as the “Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise has developed over the years. Living eternally through people’s fear and guilt, Freddy became the ultimate boogeyman. This psychological thriller taps into our basic fears of having an evil being intruding our secure sleeping space, for us to never wake up again. Remember that next time you look for the snooze button.
Paranormal Activity is where things get real, and what introduced us to the now staple horror filmmaker, Oren Peli. it follows the story of Katie and Micah who have been experiencing weird things in their home. Filmmaker, Micah, sets up a camera at the foot of their bed to keep an eye on things while they sleep, and oh boy, are there things. The now infamous shot from the bottom of the couple’s bed is a lesson in slow grueling terror. Every simple extended shot as the clock ticks forward becomes an agonizing to watch as you think ‘what’s going to move next?’
