DON’T GO SEE THE REMAKE! Instead see the original Stephen King film with Sissy Spacek and a young John Travolta. You’ll never think of the Prom the same way again.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
This is a true horror story, the one place we are most vulnerable is the place we will never be safe. In our dreams.
The most self aware horror movie ever made will have you in stitches, laughing so hard you can hardly breathe. And then have you gasping for air from fear.
In 1973 this film was actually banned from theaters for being too scary.
The most modern on the list, this movie terrifies based on the notion that a person could be terrorizing you for no reason at all. It also reenergized an innate fear of potato sacks.
