1. Sinister

Ari Aster’s feature directorial debut, a dark family drama on the nature of loss couched within a supernatural horror thriller, created a big splash. To say the least, Hereditary struck such a chord with viewers that it immediately elevated Aster to second place on our list as a filmmaker to watch. When Ellen, the Graham family matriarch, dies, her daughter’s family begins to piece together cryptic and more scary tales about their ancestors. The more they learn, the more they strive to avoid the horrible fate they appear to have inherited.

2. The Ring

Rings (2017) - IMDb

A true horror film that is completely unsuitable for the spooky atmosphere of Halloween. Despite being influenced by Tobe Hooper’s 1982 something-in-the-TV-set nightmare Poltergeist, Hideo Nakata’s 1998 horror picture Ring was an instant and unique masterpiece. It inspired a slew of sequels, spoofs, and remakes, as well as establishing a prominent Japanese horror mythos; which always appeared to have young girls from watery areas sneaking up behind you with a strange creaky-groaning sound.

Reiko, a TV reporter, investigates a shocking tale about a video that contains strange occult pictures and afflicts the viewer with a death curse. You will receive a quiet phone call when it is completed, and you will die one week later. Reiko keeps an eye on it, and believe us when we say that when the phone rings, you will jump out of your skin.

Release date: 1998

3. Dabbe

Dabbe: The Possession (2013) - IMDb

Dabbe: The Possession, released in 2013, is regarded as the scariest of all the films in the series. Hasan Karacada is the director and writer of this film. It’s the fourth film in the Dabbe franchise to have a reference to ‘The Beast of the Earth.’

This violent middle-eastern horror storey has a docu-series feel to it. The images and imagery might be disturbing, so it’s not for the faint of heart. The ownership of Kübra, a young lady preparing to marry, is the subject of the fourth instalment in the Dabbe series. Ebru, an old friend and psychiatrist, comes to her aid in trying to heal her. Things, however, go bad, and the horrors begin.

6. Hereditary

Hereditary (2018) - IMDb

Hereditary is one of those films that you shouldn’t go into detail about since it’s so creepy. Because if you do, you’ll not only ruin the surprise, but you’ll also make the listener question if you witnessed the movie or if you were dreaming. The storey is structured by writer/director Ari Aster in such a way that it’s difficult to tell if the strange happenings you’re witnessing are genuine or figments of the Graham family’s mind. They are a family plagued with Biblical bad luck as well as a hereditary predisposition to mental disease.

Release date: 2018

7. The Conjuring

The Conjuring (2013) - IMDb

With films like Saw, Dead Silence, and Insidious, James Wan has established himself as one of the current masters of horror. Based on the experiences of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, this chiller is inspired by genuine occurrences. The Warrens are well known for their work on the enigmatic case that inspired the Amityville Horror films.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga played the characters with genuine world-weariness, which helped to ground the effective jump scares and freak-out moments. Wan and his co-stars discovered new fear in traditional genre cliches, resulting in a complex cinematic world that is only getting bigger.

Release date: 2013
