I’m not a huge fan of horror movies, but Halloween is around the corner, so it’s a good time to watch some horror movies. Here’s the list of 10 my favourite horror films.
10. The Uninvited (2009)
This movie isn’t typical horror, it’s more a thriller, but with some elements which can scare you. Film directed by Charles and Thomas Guard tells story of Anna, who sees weird things and doesn’t remember what exactly happed with her mother. The idea for this movie isn’t original, this version is a remake of South Korean Janghwa, Hongryeon made in 2003.
9. Mirrors (2008)
Directed by Alexandre Aja. Main character Ben Carson realized that mirrors in his new job aren’t normal. Simple plot, but after you watch this movie I promise you that you’ll be afraid to look in the mirror ever again.
8. Dead Silence (2007)
Mystery, dead and creepy dolls. Movie written and directed by James Wan. This is a story of Jamie, who lost his wife and gets back to his home town to find out what exactly happened to his wife. He’s looking for an answer in old mysterious story.
7. It Follows (2014)
Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell, when you watching this movie you can feel the tension like in horror movies from the 70s. or 80s. The plot is simple, but builds suspense for the whole movie, music helps a lot with it.
6. The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
Movie tells us a story of Emily, who was possessed by demons. During the exorcism she dies, and the priest who celebrated them, is accused of involuntary manslaughter. It’s a good mix of horror and drama with elements of law. Directed by Scott Derrickson.
5. Stay Alive (2006)
Movie about a group of friends who decided to play in a prototype video game which is based on the real story of Elizabeth Bathory’s life. Anyone who is killed in the game dies in reality, in similar circumstances. In my opinion, one of the best plots I’ve ever seen in horror movies. It was directed by William Brent Bell.
4. Pulse (2006)
It’s first movie from the Pulse trilogy. Directed by Jim Sonzero. Internet network accidentally get hit by a mysterious force, which makes people begin to commit suicide. In my opinion really good. Clear plot with scary elements. Definitely worth watching.

I don’t have to introduce you to this movie. Well know story about Freddy Krueger who’s killing teenagers while they’re asleep. Directed by phenomenal Wes Craven. This movie is the first in series of 7 films about Freddy’s pleasure of killing.
2. The Omen (1976)
I remember when I watched this movie for the first time few years ago. That was scary, good old horror movie. Film tells a story about a family who adopted a little boy, soon they’ll find out that he’s not an ordinary kid. Directed by Richard Donner.
1. Sinister (2012)
Movie directed by Scott Derrickson, it’s a story about writer Ellison Oswalt, who’s moving into a house where the previous family died in unexplained circumstances. He wants to write a book about this story, but soon he and his family became a victim of the same house. Well done movie with a great plot, keeps you in suspense till the end. For sure it’s a great choice for Halloween evening!
