I work in modeling and film production and like to share insights into both businesses.

1. "The Prodigy"

Like every parent, she knows her child is a saint and tries to be a good kid. But, what happens when something takes over the child, and he no longer controls his intention.

Directed by Nicolas McCarthy, the horror movie is beyond creepy figures lurking in shadows. Sarah's only son, Miles, is acting up way too much, and it is beyond disturbing. It's a sign of evil with a supernatural force that overwhelms him.

2. "Anna and the Apocalypse"

Anna and the Apocalypse is a musical horror movie where zombies roam in the backward town of Little Haven. The undead people are causing all sorts of crazy stuff. But, all that Anna and her friends do is dance and sing while trying to handle the Apocalypse. The worse part is that it is happening during Christmas time.

That's right. The movie is a horror, comedy, and musical. Watch the trailer, and see how much fun it is to watch.

3. "The Possession of Hannah Grace"

A father claims his daughter's life while performing an exorcism to drive the demons from her body and soul. The daughter ends up in the morgue when it is Megan's shift. The body looks disfigured but is not dead. Megan is unaware of the young woman's condition until they are locked in the basement with the two inside the corridors.

4. "Slice"

Slice movie poster says, "Dead in 30 Minutes or Less" and "A Way Out Alive." Obviously, the movie is a horror film, but it is also a comedy. Austin Vesely wrote and directed this movie about a pizza delivery driver murdered on the job. The whole city tries to find the culprit with the usual suspects, such as drug dealers, ghosts, and a humiliating werewolf.

Did you recognize Joe Keery from Stranger Things? His role is the photojournalist, and he looks pretty good — Katherine Cunningham, Zazie Beetz, Hannibal Buress, other quirky cast members star in this movie.

5. "Ganja & Hess"

Ganja & Hess is a horror movie filled with metaphor and allegory. Produced with a budget of $350,000, Ganja & Hess arrived in 1973 with accolades from the critics and won Critics’ Week choice during the Cannes Film Festival the year it was released.

"The last thing I want to do is make a black vampire film... If I had to write about blood, I was going to do that, but I could not just make a movie about blood."

— Bill Gunn told a friend explaining why he didn’t make another black vampire movie like Blacula.

6. "Unsane"

The most injustice and scary situation anyone experienced was being involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital. If you ever find yourself in this situation, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights is your recourse.

It was hard for me to watch this movie because I felt vulnerable and trapped. It's how Soderbergh used the iPhone shooting each scene tight and sometimes with a wide-angle lens.

7. "No Solicitors"

John Callas writes and directs this eerie but campy terror of a movie. Political satire weaves through the storyline, yet horror fans only want the scary stuff, and it is pretty cheesy. Still, it is a festival winner at both Scare-A-Con and Fright Night festivals.

Nobody told the real estate agent about no soliciting at the Cutterman’s home. They seem friendly and helpful, but an invite to dinner means corrupt under-the-table dealings. Drugging the guests tells the story of the horrific family business.

They soon undergo the horrific experience of slowly being eaten piece by piece. The family business is nothing but a farm for selling their internal organs.

8. "Hostile"

Written and directed by Mathieu Turi, Hostile is a creepy horror movie starring Brittany Ashworth, Grégory Fitoussi, and Javier Botet.

The story takes place after a worldwide epidemic has killed most of the population. The handful of those still alive struggle to survive by searching for shelter and food. A strange and creepy creature roams in the area.

Juliette finished her scavenging and headed back to camp. She is in a terrible accident and stranded in her car because of a broken leg.

She is right in the middle of a hostile desert. She must focus on surviving the danger of the post-apocalypse while the creepy creature lurks around the car.

The special effects are decent, and the story moves along with plenty of intense situations and a backstory. The creature lurking around the car is too much for me, so horror fans need to see this movie.

9. "Island Zero"

Directed by Josh Gerritsen, who is making his directorial debut, Island Zero takes place in Maine — filmed on the location where the story follows the people on a fishing island off the coast of Maine. They are strangely cut off from the outside world and don’t know why or how it happened. The mystery starts after the island’s ferry abruptly stops coming.

Add to the mystery of it all, every phone on the island has gone dead. Added to the fact that each boat launched to the mainland never returns.

Dead bodies float up at the water’s edge, and the resilient group of remaining islanders investigate who or what is killing them off.

The promotional line for the movie is “Everything needs to eat.”

The horror movie cast includes Laila Robins, Adam Wade McLaughlin, Teri Reeves, and Matthew Wilkas. The screenplay is by Tess Gerritsen.

10. "Greta"

Neil Jordan directed Greta, and his credits include Interview with a Vampire, The Crying Game, The End of the Affair, and Mona Lisa. The story is an idea by Ray Wright, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jordan.

It focuses on Frances, a young woman who becomes friends with a widow. The widow tricks and manipulates Frances to the point of her life being in danger. The movie trailer is worth watching because it tells most of the story.

11. "Gretal & Hansel"

Definitely, not a fairytale or a horror movie for the lighthearted, Gretal & Hansel follows a young girl with her little brother into a dark, foreboding forest. While looking for food and possible work, they fall upon the darkest core of terrifying evil.

Osgood Perkins, the son of Anthony Perkins (Psycho), does an excellent job directing the horrific and chilling story. And yes, there is a witch in the movie.

12. "Arrebato"

Ivan Zulueta directed this Arrebato in 1979. The 4K restoration Blu-ray means the quality of this classic film is worth buying if you're a diehard horror fan. This horror movie is a blend of Super-8, sex and heroin, following Jose Sirgado, a horror movie director. Jose lives a life of drugs and doubts while he tries to complete his second film.

His ex-girlfriend shows up, and a package from an old friend is at his doorstep. The package contains a door key, audiotape and Super-8 film. Next, the movie is an ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis from a vertigo strip of filming a more and being filmed.

13. "Red Snow"

Filmed in just 13 days, Red Snow is a low-budget horror movie that has a talented cast, making the cinema nightmarish and stiff. But, it's funny as a dark comedy about vampires and lots of blood.

Sean Nichols wrote and directed this film that observes Olivia Romo, a struggling writer of vampire romance novels. Shut-in at a cabin at South Lake Tahoe, she defends herself against actual vampires during Christmas.

An injured bat named Luke crashes into her living room. He turns into a handsome vampire, and a romance blossoms. The problem is that he has vampire friends that want to suck Olivia's blood while he tries to keep himself from taking a bite out of her.

14. "Nope"

Jordan Peele wrote and directed Nope, the award-winning director's stab at the phenomenon of being horrific. Before the film arrived in movie theaters, it was all hush-hush.

The story is about a brother and sister who run a horse ranch and stumble upon something fantastic and horrific in the skies above. An owner of a theme park next to the farm tries to make money off the mysterious and otherworldly phenomenon.

15. "You Won't Be Alone"

Goran Stolevski helms this horrific, creepy tale about a witch. You Won't Be Alone happens within an isolated mountain village in 19th century Macedonia, Southeast Europe. It yarns a bizarre story about a young girl kidnapped by an ancient spirit and turned into a witch.

16. "Halloween Kills"

Gleaned from the characters John Carpenter and Debra Hill created, "Halloween Kills" brings back Jamie Lee Curtis in her iconic role and Judy Greer with Anthony Michael Hall.

Fed up with Michael Myers hunting them, the citizens of Haddonfield decide to pursue Myers and hunt him down. Some may think Myers will never die, no matter how hard Laurie Strode tries.

17. "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It"

Michael Chaves masterminds The Conjuring: The Devil Made Do It displays a chilling tale of terror, a true story. The story spends some time with real-life paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren, starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson.

Believed to be one of their most sensational cases, they fight for the soul of a young boy. First time in the U.S., a murder suspect claims demonic possession as a defense.


18. "The Night House"

David Bruckner brings us The Night House. A widow discovers her deceased husband's disturbing secrets, turning horrific and diabolical. Rebecca Hall is believable as the widow. The trailer share more details.

The movie focuses on past events with no flashback scenes. It's all linear, and the special effects make the movie terrifying.

19. "The Empty Man"

The Empty Man will fill your horror obsession with the mysterious disappearance of teenagers. James, an unsettled retired cop, gets thrust into motion to investigate these disappearances. He follows leads tying a secretive occult-determined group to a frightening provincial legend. James admits that his life — those nearest to him — is in horrific danger.

20. "Spiral"

Having a stand-up comedian, Chris Rock, portray the brazen Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks in a SAW spinoff movie is pretty spectacular. Zeke works in the shadow of a respected police veteran, played by Samuel L. Jackson.

Zeke has a rookie partner, played by Max Minghella. Both take over a grisly investigation into murders eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Zeke ends up at the core of the killer’s macabre game, unknowingly entrapped in an intensifying mystery.

21. "Hostile"

Mathieu Turi wrote and directed Hostile, which occurs when a worldwide epidemic kills most of the population on Earth. Few who survived the plague contended daily to find shelter and food.

A super creepy creature proves they are not alone. The trailer gives a glimpse of this creature, so you’ll have an idea.

A love story is another part of the movie told in flashbacks while Juliette struggles to survive the car crash and creepy creature. The love story twists with the horror-thriller and science-fiction aspects of the film. It’s not the usual horror movie, but you have a clever twist at the end.

22. "Red Letter Day"

Red Letter Day is a raucous horror-comedy but still scary. Cameron Macgowan wrote and directed the movie about a divorced mother who adjusts to a new life in a quiet suburban community. Her two teens receive eerie red letters demanding they kill each other or get killed.

Macgowan crafted a true neighborhood nightmare, and the acting is convincing.

The low-budget movie is scary and funny. Diehard horror fans will have a kind heart for the film.

23. "Marrowbone"

You will see some familiar faces in Sergio G. Sanchez's Marrowbone, such as Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton and George MacKay. A screenwriter for such haunting films as The Orphanage and The Impossible, Sanchez has made a name for himself.

Marrowbone follows four siblings filled with secrets, enticing you to live inside their world. The siblings cross the Atlantic, escaping from a mysterious trauma that has a life of its own. They find refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, then uncover something horrific about the house, a more sinister occupant, and it turns into a haunting tale.

The siblings are lively, like kids, but also display uneasiness, coming across with an unusual romanticism and a beautifully framed movie.

Another character in the movie is the house, semi-abandoned with an unkept yard that marks the boundary between the home and the outer civilization—isolated with no signs of modern life.

24. "The Last Witch Hunter"

Breck Eisner directs The Last Witch Hunter as a large-scale and admirable movie, taking a distinct urban fantasy-horror universe. The film looks dissimilar to other films of the same character.

It begins in the past with silver-haired warriors on a vital journey to slay the evil Witch Queen. She placed a curse on the whole countryside. The warriors fight bravely with suspense and terror as if they are fighting a monster, not a witch. All in all, this part of the movie is outstanding.

Come forward and meet Kaulder, played by Van Diesel, an immortal hero with a very complicated or uneasy personality. Michael Caine and Elijah Wood also star. If you are familiar with Diesel’s characters, you know he is still arrogant and badass.

Eisner uses a lot of action scenes with some horrifying scenes, a solid supporting cast, and CGI with animated monsters and crazy spells.

25. "The Quite Ones"

The Quiet Ones is a horror film similar to The Sixth Sense or The Others, based on a true story. John Pogue directs this horror movie worth seeing if you are into horror.

An actual experiment at Oxford in 1974, this film brings to light the profound notion of what the supernatural experience might manifest in the minds of believers who have a few screws loose.

We watch Professor Coupland, graduate students Krissy and Harry and videographer Brian (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games franchise). They investigate the psychic phenomena of destructive young Jane with the rationale of treating her. Like all psychiatric treatment, it's brutal and inhumane.

You'll jump out of your chair or skin, whichever comes first.

26. "Prey for the Devil"

Daniel Stamm directed Prey for the Devil, and the movie begins with a worldwide upsurge in demonic possessions. The Catholic Church renews exorcism schools to instruct priests in the Rite of Exorcism.

On this spiritual frontline, an unlikely serviceperson rises, a budding nun, Sister Ann. Propel onto the spiritual battleground along with fellow student Father Dante. Sister Ann ends up in a struggle for the soul of a young girl.

Sister Ann acknowledges the same demon that possessed the girl is the same one who plagued her mother years ago. Sister Ann discovers the Devil has her exactly where he needs her, and it craves to get into her soul.

27. "Candyman"

Anthony’s painting career has stalled, and a fluke encounter with an old-timer reveals the tragically horrific nature of the actual tale behind Candyman.

He sees it as a refreshing way to restart his career and paint again. Unknowingly, he opens the door to an intricate past that tatters his sanity and releases a terrifyingly viral surge of violence, putting him on a collision trajectory with destiny.

Nia DaCosta wrote and directed Candyman, a horror movie with a bona fide story worth following.

28. "Fantasy Island"

Welcome to a spin on the television series Fantasy Island, a horror film. Jeff Wadlow directed the movie, also written by him, Chris Roach, and Jillian Jacobs.

But the fantasies turn into nightmares. The guests have to decipher the island’s mystery to flee with their lives.

29. "Gretel & Hansel"

Rob Hayes wrote, and Osgood Perkins directed the horror movie Gretel & Hansel. It’s not the fairytale you heard as a child, but a horror movie that will scare you.

The movie follows four high school girls living in a small town in Massachusetts. The girls conduct a ritual to unveil the lore of Slender Man. One of the girls disappears, and the others suspect she is Slender Man’s latest victim.

The Black Phone focuses on a dead phone that rings and rings to save a boy's life.

The horror film follows a shy but intelligent 13-year-old boy named Finney abducted by a perverse killer. Screaming does little good because the killer trapped the boy in a soundproof basement. Screaming does little good.

A disconnected phone rings. Finney up the phone and hears the killer's previous victims, ensuring what happened to them doesn't happen to Finney.

33. "Last Night In Soho"

Last Night in Soho descends into terror and mind games, following a young girl named Eloise. She's intense about fashion design. Yet London is puzzling for her because it differs from where she grew up. There is a bad side to London, which is horrific.

Eloise can time travel into the past, the 1960s, where she meets her idol, Sandie, a striking up-and-coming singer.

It's a psychological horror movie that gradually builds like a Hitchcock thriller.

34. "Fear of Rain"

A teenager, Rain Burroughs, becomes caught in the synthetic psychiatric balderdash of labeling and being diagnosed with the made-up illness called schizophrenia.

She sees shadows and hears cries from her neighbor's attic, hiding a horrific secret. Caleb, a charmingly uneasy new boy, says he'll help Rain. Yet, she wonders if he is even real.

35. "Freaky"

Freaky gets entangled as a body-swap movie where a teenage girl switches bodies with a persistent serial killer.

Her conduct grows increasingly eccentric and unpredictable. A terrifying thought festers in the boys’ minds. A sinking apprehension that the woman underneath the dressings, preparing their food and sleeping in the next room, is not their beloved mother.

37. "The Grudge"

The Grudge storyline derives from the Japanese film Ju-On: The Grudge, written and directed by Takashi Shimizu.

Sami Raimi produced the American version of the Shimizu film as a twisted take on the horror classic. Yet, the Raimi’s version is scarier. If you worship horror, you will treasure this movie. The bathtub scene is visually more sinister out of all the clips I’ve seen — super frightening.

38. "Black Christmas"

Black Christmas is a horror holiday movie for us diehard horror fans. Who wants to watch White Christmas!?

It’s a timely horror movie that looks like a 1974 slasher classic. But as a present tone, a campus killer faces a formidable sisterhood.

The trailer is acutely frightful, and horror buffs will get their blood pumped.

41. "Antlers"

Antlers is a horror movie exceeding horror movies with excellent direction by Scott Cooper. The film includes a stellar cast with Keri Russell and Jess Plemons.

The movie takes place in a small-town Oregon, following a young, creepy boy. He reads his story to his teacher, and it's so sinister and undeniably horrifically evilly insane.

His story is so sinister that it is deniably evil and insane. With the town's sheriff and teacher, they investigate the possible horrors within this boy's life.

42. "Underwater"

Underwater is a horror movie about a crew of water researchers who must scramble to safety after an earthquake destroys their underground laboratory. But something has awakened.

The horror movie stars Twilight's Kristen Stewart, and she looks good in the trailer wearing a bra and cropped blonde hair.

Though the movie follows Stewart, she has a talented cast backing her up. Its style looks terrifying.

43. "The Hunt"

The studio had shelved The Hunt for a long time because of the political climate in the United States. An accurate parody of the dark internet conspiracy theory, a globalist elite group gathers at a remote Manor House.

Here, for the first time, they hunt humans for sport. But the Illuminati's master plan goes off the rails because a hunted woman is better at the hunters' game than they are.

For obvious and horrific reasons, the family is not only eccentric but wealthy, implementing a dangerous time-honored game where not just the newlyweds fight for survival.

You might see familiar faces, such as Andie MacDowell and Adam Brody.

45. "Crawl"

Crawl is about a giant hurricane crashing into a Florida hometown. Haley ignores evacuation directives and searches for her missing father instead, which makes an intense horror thriller.

She locates him severely injured and stuck in the family home's crawl space. The two become cornered by swiftly advancing floodwaters. Their period to flee runs out, and the intense storm with surging water level is not what causes the threat to survival. They must deal with a massive and savage alligator.

46. "MA"

It seems like it's all for fun and games. But soon, it turns into a horror movie. Ma welcomes everybody to her home to party and drink, yet good luck making it home.
Sue Ann is an outsider in a quiet Ohio town.

One day, she buys alcohol for Maggie, a new teenager in the city, after she asks Ma. Sue Ann takes advantage of the trusting teen and some of Maggie's friends.
She allows the teenagers to hang out in her basement.

But they have to follow some house rules, such as one has to stay sober, don't curse, call her Ma and never head up upstairs.

But as Ma's friendliness changes to obsession, what begins as a teenage fantasy becomes a horrifying nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the funniest hang-out to the worst place in the world

47. "Child's Play"

Child's Play is the contemporary remake of the 1988 horror classic.

If you loved Chuckie, you'd love this movie about Karen, a single mother who gifts her son Andy a Buddy doll, heedless of its more demonic nature.

Now, Andy and his friends try to destroy Chuckie. But he's one tough buddy doll. He even wields a kitchen knife.

Zia, Hostile is the one to since its unique and not mainstream.

Zia Uddin from UK on November 21, 2018:

I was a big horror movie fan years ago. Used to watch Freddy and Jason flicks on videotape and I still have those.

The Hostile movie seems quite tempting to watch. Thanks for sharing.

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on October 29, 2018:

Rochelle, That is what I thought. I am not into the gory stuff either.

Rochelle Frank from California Gold Country on October 29, 2018:

Ok, I liked mystery movies and most Alfred Hitchcock’s stuff, but paranormal, gory stuff I can do without. Nightly news has mhore than enough horror.

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on October 29, 2018:

Rochelle, I get it. I am sure there are some horror movies you like that are haunting. Which makes me think I should differentiate them more. You have your horror movies like Psycho, It, and Halloween. But there are those movies that are called horror movie but are more haunting like The Little Stranger, Six Sense, and The Haunting.

Gregory DeVictor from Pittsburgh, PA on October 29, 2018:

I forgot all about Psycho. I will add it to my list. I see that is available too on Amazon Prime.

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on October 29, 2018:

Gregory, Hitchcock is the best. Psycho is a timeless horror movie. Some of his later stuff like Frenzy is true to his form. Psych has a pretty surprising ending, love it.

Rochelle Frank from California Gold Country on October 29, 2018:

Interesting hub, and well written as always, but I personally cannot understand why people find his genre entertaining.

Gregory DeVictor from Pittsburgh, PA on October 29, 2018:

Kenna, that sounds great! Up until now, I have been periodically watching some of Alfred Hitchcock’s shows either on late-night television or on YouTube. I really enjoy his stuff. I especially enjoy the surprise endings!

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on October 29, 2018:

Gregory, Awesome! I have plans to add to the list and have about three more movies to add.

Gregory DeVictor from Pittsburgh, PA on October 29, 2018:

Kenna, I have bookmarked your article because it is a terrific source of information. I see that I can watch some of these films via Amazon Prime.

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on September 12, 2018:

Linda, Thank you for visiting my newest article on horror movies. I agree. Hostile looks good. I am in touch with the director via Twitter. I hope to get a direct quote from him and add it to the article. Did you notice Claire Foy (The Crown and First Man) is in Unsane?

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on September 11, 2018:

I generally don't watch horror movies, but it was interesting to read the plot descriptions that you've shared. The stories certainly sound scary! The movie that I'd most like to see from your list is "Hostile".

Kenna McHugh (author) from Northern California on September 10, 2018:

Thank you for visiting! Yes. Island Zero is a good horror movie to watch. It is pretty graphic about floating bodies along the shore. If you do see Island Zero, let me know if you liked it. I like horror movies that are haunting. The Little Stranger, which opened in the theaters last week, is haunting and I mention it in my article "15 Best Horror Movies." The Little Stranger is very unsettling on the nerves without dead bodies and blood everywhere.

Travel Chef from Manila on September 10, 2018:

Wonderful list of horror films here. I seldom watch this kind of movie, but I enjoy how my emotions build up everytime I'm watching one. I might try watching the island zero. It sounds interesting to me. Thanks for sharing!
