Old School Classic Blood-And-Guts Thrillers From The 80s And 90s

Watch Friday The 13th, The Shining, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Child’s Play, It or Silence Of The Lambs.

The last few decades of the 20th Century saw the birth of some of the most iconic and monstrous horror films in entertainment history:

Friday The 13th made you fear the day itself (and any guy wearing a hockey mask in the street), Freddy Krueger ruined your sleep for nights on end, Pennywise (It) took your fear of clowns to another level, Hannibal Lecter spoilt your appetite while you were still in the cinema and Chucky gave you a new perspective on toy dolls.

An era of legendary evil, indeed.

A few of these classics were re-made in more recent times such as It (2017), the Hannibal TV series (2013-2015) and Friday The 13th is rumoured to be remade in 2020.

Modern-Day Psychos And Demons Of The 2000s

Watch Get Out, The Babadook, The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw or Paranormal Activity.

The critically acclaimed Get Out took the world by storm in 2017 by winning more than a handful of awards. The Saw series seemed never-ending and released its eighth movie, Jigsaw, to the franchise. The Conjuring, Insidious and Paranormal Activity also have a series of films for those brave souls who wish to binge-watch.

And what makes these movies even scarier is when you read the words “inspired by a true story.”
