Corn Children (1984)

It would just be wrong to have a list of horror movies without something inspired by the works of Stephen King. Children of the Corn is a slasher classic that features a group of creepy kids who commit the misdeeds and murders of a supernatural entity that has its grip on a small rural town. A classic for a reason.

Sometimes a horror-comedy is just what you need – not too scary, but not too cold either. Sharknado is the perfect blend of absolute ridiculousness, spiced up with a hint of gore. In a world where it sometimes feels like a small fish in a big pond, why not spend some time watching a pod of sharks?

Well, go to the United States

If you’re looking for a truly awesome zombie movie, look no further. Train To Busan is an action horror about a family stuck on a train in the middle of a horrific zombie outbreak. Not only is it gripping and intense, but it’s also surprisingly human for a zombie movie. Well worth a watch!

Red Bank Movies

One of the best-known horror movies on this list, Carrie is a cult classic for a reason. Starring Sissy Spacek, the film focuses on the trials of telekinetic teenager Carrie as she faces a group of cruel teenagers, growing pains and family conflict. It’s since spurred on a reboot and a musical, but nothing quite beats the original.


If you like your horror films interspersed with a bit of contemporary dance (and who wouldn’t!), Suspiria is definitely the one for you. It tells the story of a supernatural dance academy run by a group of witches and features themes such as motherhood, guilt, and abuse of power. A tribute to the original 1977 film, Suspiria stars Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton.


If psychological horror (and just a touch of gore) appeals to you, consider checking out The Neon Demon. Starring Elle Fanning, Jena Malone and Keanu Reeves, the film follows an aspiring role model (Fanning) as she tries to navigate this cutthroat industry — at all costs.
