The Children of Corn (1984)
It would just be wrong to have a list of horror movies without something inspired by the works of Stephen King. The Children of Corn is a slasher classic that includes a bunch of scary children committing the atrocities and murders of a supernatural being who has power over a small rural town. A classic with a reason.

One of the most famous horror movies on this list, Carrie is a cult classic with a reason.

If you like your horror movies sprinkled with a bit of contemporary dance (and who wouldn’t!), Then Suspiria is definitely the one for you.

In honor of the original 1977 film, Suspiria plays Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton.
If psychological horror (and just a touch of blood) is right in your driveway, consider checking out The Neon Demon. Starring Elle Fanning, Jenna Malone and Keanu Reeves, the film follows an ambitious model (Fanning) as she tries to make her way in this hefty industry – at all costs.
