Ever since I was a little girl I have loved scary movies. It started with my mom suggesting I watch a "not so scary" movie when I was too sick to go to school. The movie was The Haunting with Lili Taylor and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It wasn't that bad, but it opened the door to scary movies.

How I picked my top 5 scary movies is based on how scared I got during the movie, and how long I felt creeped out afterwards. This, of course, is my own personal opinion. Some of these movies were hard for me to watch while peeking through my fingers. Check out my list below.

Some honorable mentions I would like include are: The Exorcist, Hush, The Conjuring, and The Blair Witch Project. However, I would love to see your list of favorite scary movies. Share with us your list on our Facebook page!
