Welcome to a journey into the dark and twisted worlds of three Scariest Movies Ever. In “Deep Red” (1975), we witness the brutal murders and eerie mysteries that plague a musician and a reporter in a small Italian town. “Frankenstein” (1931) takes us back to the birth of horror cinema, exploring the terrifying consequences of a mad scientist’s quest for immortality.
The House of the Devil” (2009) shows a babysitter’s terror at a devil-worshipping cult, among the top horror films that reveal human fears and madness. Join us to explore these classics’ iconic moments, motifs, and themes.
Deep Red (1975)
Director: Dario Argento
A musician and journalist with sexual tension solve Rome murders linked to childhood trauma; not the scariest, but the ending challenges perception.
Scariest moment: A woman is boiled alive in her bathtub at home. How do you read it?
Director: James Whale
It is probably no longer necessary for us to put up a little sign before a horror movie that warns us of what we are going to see. But this adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel is no less disturbing than it was in the years of its release. Particularly because of Boris Karloff’s simple yet complex way of acting.
Scariest moment: The monster has fun throwing things into a lake with a girl, until she throws it at herself.
The House of the Devil (2009)
Director: Ti West
A college student (Jocelin Donahue) reluctantly accepts a babysitting job offered by a very weird guy (superbly played by actor Tom Noonan). It doesn’t take long for her to realize that everything is going wrong at that guy’s house.
Scariest moment: Greta Gerwig dies so suddenly you don’t even have time to mourn her.
