Human creations can be as dangerous as a human mind. This movie is yet another proof of the same. Despite being asked to discontinue, two scientists, Clive and Elsa, keep up with their experiment involving hybrids and intertwining human DNA, resulting in creating a dangerous creature.

Even after receiving a second warning from their employees, they let the creature live. From developing it into a female creature to planning to terminate the hybrid before reaching its full term to letting it live, the story takes a new turn.  

This creature is soon named Dren, the opposite of Nerd, and it is observed that Dren physically ages much faster than the human species but mentally grows as a human child.

This creature isn’t seen as a dangerous entity in the first half of the movie as it is in its developing phase, but as the story unfolds, it tries to seduce Clive. Watch this movie to find out whether they succeed in ceasing the life of Dren.  

Top 10 Rating: From making us go all awe for Dren to being shaken by its real deal, we are listing this movie on number 10 of our Top 10 best Horror Movies.

We would have never imagined a situation like COVID coming to life, where we all will be locked in our own houses. Similar is the situation of the protagonist family in A Quiet Place. It is a story about the only surviving family left when a blind but noise-sensitive creature seems to have killed most of the humans around. With precisely accurate details presented perfectly in the light of the situation, this movie is a must-watch.  

In the midst of this silence-required situation, the writers seem to enjoy adding this not-so-silent twist. When the mother of three is pregnant yet again, both the parents are found to be extra attentive. (Psstt, we told you about the accurate details already). Believe us; you’ll hold your breath when the baby is born because, oops, the creature is just a few inches away!

Good News: 2021 came in with A Quiet Place II, and we are very excited to tick mark this one as watched. 

Top10 Rating: Offering the viewers with an interesting storyline with uniqueness and preciseness in details, this movie is lined up on number 9 in our Top 10 best Horror Movies.

It is always the curiosity that leads to the next step in a Horror Movie, either to see who is behind that cupboard door or to check the authenticity of an Ouija Board.  

With just the right amount of blood-curdling moments, this movie is about two best friends, Debbie and Laine, who used to play Ouija in their childhood. This board being burnt by one of the friends seems to have found its way back to Debbie. Soon after she is found dead, Laine takes over to find out the cause of her death.

Although we suggest not to play Ouija, but to watch one is never disappointing.

Top10 Rating: Not too long of a story, Ouija is on number 7 in Top 10 Best Horror Movies.

6. Bhool Bhulaiyya :

Not everyone considers this movie a decent horror movie as it is more bent towards the psychological horror-comedy genre. Still, we can’t deny how horrifying the word Manjulikka became for quite some time.  

The story revolves around a girl who is married off to a well-known Brahmin family in Rajasthan. The palace where the newlyweds, Siddharth and Avni, reside is known for its horrifying history. A king beheaded one of the dancers who had an affair with his fellow dancer Manjulikka, whom the king had his eyes on. Soon after, Manjulikka hanged herself, and the rumors had it that her spirit would never leave the palace.

Avni falls in love with the palace and is deeply interested in the epic tale of Manjulikka, so much that she lands up in the room which was locked with her spirit using a sacred talisman. The following events add up to the mystery of whether Manjulikka’s spirit has possessed her.

Perfect humor has been added with the character of Dr. Aditya Srivastav, played by Akshay Kumar.

Top10 Rating: Being a movie you could watch 100 times with the same curiosity, it is listed on number 6 in Top 10 Best Horror Movies.

This one of the best horror movies is a clear example of the lengths we go to prank someone without realizing the aftermath. With an open ending, we guarantee you of a fact that you’ll never go back to watch this movie again. It is because of the self-reflection quality of the film.

The story revolves around a Social Media Influencer who is taken to Moscow by his friends to unwrap yet another adventure. But instead of getting an expected reaction out of their influencer friend, the group ends up getting an unexpected end to a mere prank they played.

We won’t discuss much this movie as it will eliminate the suspense factor and the reason it has been labeled as horror, but we assure you, you’ll be in shock for days.

Uncovering the bitter truths of today’s generation and the pranks it brings along, this movie is well deserved to be in the top 5 of Top 10 Best Horror Movies.

4. Parasite : 

Rating : 8.4/10

The parasite is an Oscar Winning movie with a disturbing but true storyline. It precisely and very efficiently depicts the title, which seems to be chosen very accurately. It is about two families – Kim Family and Park Family, where the former belongs to the struggling middle/low class and the latter is a well-off family.

The story starts when the son of the Kim’s starts working for the Parks. The whole Kim family soon makes their way into the wealthy house of the Parks by fraudulent means without disclosing them being part of one family. Just like the title suggests, they start living in the Park house like Parasites. Furthermore, you’ll find out the presence of yet another entity in the house.

The second half of the movie is proof of how the working class is forced to go against each other, trying to move up in the societal hierarchy while the families like the Parks keep up with their wealthy lifestyles. This is not a usual horror movie but it gives you the best vibe of horror feelings without any ghost or curse scenes. That makes this movie one the best horror movies of all time.

Top10 Rating: This movie being a messenger of a significant threat to society, is listed number 4 in Top 10 Best Horror Movies.

Consisting of 4 parts, Insidious, Insidious Chapter 2, Insidious Chapter 3, and Insidious – The Last Key, the writers offer a fascinating storyline revolving around Astral Dimensions. As interesting as it may sound, it can be a real danger for a living human.

Although all four parts are equally horrifying, Insidious is considered the best of them all. The reason may be the new concept and introduction to the idea itself.
