Top 12 creepy horror movies that you shouldn’t watch alone


3. The Blair Witch Project

When it was released in 1999, The Blair Witch Project had audiences flocking to the movie theaters to see what all the fuss was about.

As with so many of the creepiest films, the director has realized that showing the fear of the main characters can pull on the audience’s scare strings more than putting any amount of vampires, ghouls, serial killers or werewolves on screen.

It is difficult to describe exactly why this film is scary, but you will almost certainly get caught up in the fear that is playing out in the eyes and voices of the characters on screen.

The hype surrounding the movie reached a fever pitch after it was claimed that the events on camera actually did transpire.

At the start of the movie, the audience is told that they are witnessing actual footage that was discovered in a forest in the US. Many fans got caught up in the excitement and fell for the clever marketing strategy.

Real or not, the movie is a terrifying experience that puts the viewer right in the thick of the action. It’s almost impossible not to feel sympathy for the terrified characters onscreen that are being stalked by a sinister presence hiding out in the woods.
