A lot of big scaredy cats have shed tears and woke in the middle of the night screaming "Mommy"!

    Psycho (1960)

    You will find little argument in the fact that Alfred Hitchcock is the master of suspense and tension. In 1960 Hitchcock created one of the most memorable horror experiences with a limited cast and budget. Psycho's scare created lots of empty rooms for small inns and motel keepers across the country, and the Bates Motel became synonymous with murder!

    The Exorcist (1973)

    This movie is one that you should watch with the lights on! The Exorcist has on of the scariest music arrangements ever made in "Tubular Bells". The Exorcist pits Heaven and Hell against the viewers faith and creates a powerful image of a demon that can't be shot, stabbed or detonated. Far scarier than that found in the Freddy or Jason series' and garners the top spot in the top horror films of all time!
