Evil Dead (2013)

The 2013 reboot of Sam Rami’s cult classic captures the spirit of the original in horrifying but fantastic ways. Gone is the slapstick comedy of the sequels – instead, the reboot attempts to tell a brutal and gritty story of demonic possession in an abandoned cabin. While the film may not have the charm of the original trilogy, it more than makes up for it with scares and gore.

The Sixth Sense (1999)

The O.G big twist movie, this movie convinced everyone for a short time that M. Night Shyamalan was a mastermind at filmmaking. It covers all sorts, from murder to ghosts and simultaneously innocent yet creepy kids, and it ultimately has great performances by everyone in the cast. We won’t say any more, for fear of spoiling this film for the two people who don’t know the twist. But you definitely need to watch this one if you haven’t.

While you’ll likely spend a lot of this film feeling scared, you’ll also spend a lot of it just feeling sorry for the poor protagonist, who makes one bad decision (that her boss pushes her to make) that ultimately damns her for all eternity. It has one of the most iconic – and disturbing – endings in all of modern horror, and it’ll definitely traumatize you into being nice to every old lady you ever meet ever again.

Hellraiser (2022)
