The miniature candy is taking up floor space at your local grocery store and the pumpkin spice lattes are flowing freely. It can only mean one thing. Halloween is just around the corner.

I don’t care if you’re too chicken to watch scary movies. I don’t care if fake blood and guts tie your stomach in knots. It’s not Halloween unless you watch at least one scary movie. Now, if you’re only going to watch one or two thrillers in the month of October, you must make them count. That’s where we come in.

Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the scariest, creepiest, and most horrifying movies available. So, get some popcorn ready, grab a box of miniature candy bars, and get ready for a comprehensive guide to the scariest movies available.

Get Out

Scary movies are very niche. Apart from a select group of movie going masochists, most people avoid them like the plague. That’s what makes the financial, mainstream success of 2017’s Get Out so remarkable.

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut made bank, to the tune of $175-million in box office revenue. That’s no small feat, especially for a horror movie.

The film follows protagonist Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) as he sets out to meet the parents of his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams). What follows is a tense, scary, and thought-provoking critique on racism, interracial relationships, and society at large. If you haven’t seen Get Out, drop everything and watch it right now.
