Zombie movies may seem overdone, but the Train to Busan does a great job of reviving them.

2. Cabin Fever (2002)

This film seems like your average college summer vacation movie at first, until some of the characters are infected with a flesh-eating bacteria, that is. Their romantic cabin getaway is quickly turned into a horrible, bloody nightmare. What makes this film even more terrifying is that it's partially based on a true story of Eli Roth's experiences while traveling in Iceland.

3. Veronica (2017)

This film is quite new, but it's based in 1991. Veronica tells the story of a young girl who attempts to connect with her late father via a Ouija board. Rather than connect with her father though, Veronica finds herself haunted by something much more sinister. The film is based on a true story, and has been called one of the "scariest films ever made".

Based on a 1992 Stephen King novel, Netflix has just recently brought this chilling story to life.

Anyone who's experienced sleep paralysis first-hand knows just how terrifying it is. If you haven't experienced it, consider yourself lucky.

6. The Conjuring 2 (2016)

Many people have heard of The Conjuring, but not many are brave enough to watch it. This is the second installment in the series, and it's equally as chilling as the first. In this film, a single mother and her four children are being terrorized by demons, and it's up to Ed and Lorraine Warren to come to free them.

8. It Follows (2014)

We've all heard of STI's, but what about STM's, or Sexually Transmitted Monsters? This terrifying film follows the story of a girl who's been infected by a monster, and that monster's only goal is to brutally execute her unless she can pass it on to someone else. The monster cannot be seen by anyone who hasn't been infected, and it's capable of taking any human form it wants, so nobody is safe.

She loves but resents her young son, and these feelings are manifested when a book called Mister Babadook appears on her child's bookshelf.
