Horror disappeared from cinemas during the war, so this marked a return to screens for the genre.

The scares here are incremental and subtle, driven not by outright terror but by doors that close themselves or pianos that play on their own.

Is he going crazy, or are there darker forces at work? Buy, rent or watch 'Jacob's Ladder'. After witnessing the barbaric practices of an Amazonian tribe, sensation-seeking American documentary filmmakers develop a taste for rape and murder.

For all its graphic depictions of cruelty and torture, the most appalling thing about this cannibalistic carnage is the laughable way that it purports to condemn the exploitative violence that it so obviously delights in depicting.

Buy, rent or watch 'Cannibal Holocaust'. Effectively imprisoned by her father, who feels responsible for the car accident in which she was disfigured, the infantilised Christiane is like a caged baby bird waiting to find its wings.

There were reports of audience members fainting during the facial surgery scenes, but for Franju this was a tale of anguish rather than a horror movie per se.

Did it just get cold in here? The magisterial Scott plays a well known composer who, following the death of his wife and son in a road accident, takes up a teaching job in Seattle and moves into an eerie, haunted Victorian house.

Guillermo del Toro maintains that the best ghost stories all have an undertow of melancholy. Hitchcock often scares by suggestion as crows appear on telegraph wires and the noise of them becomes increasingly intense — but he also shows full-on, unsettling aerial attacks, and the special effects for these scenes still endure.

Just imagine those birds in 3D. Buy, rent or watch 'The Birds'. Buy, rent or watch 'The Evil Dead'. A year later their footage was found There are interviews with locals, footage of the trio getting hopelessly lost in the woods, and increasingly hysterical arguments.

At night, inside their flimsy tent, they are assailed by creepy scuffling and eerie screams. Crucially, since neither director was a horror nerd, they cut a highly original path through the dark woods of our imagination.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Blair Witch Project'. See you on the otherside Do funfair haunted houses still exist, or are they obsolete in this era of torture porn and human centipedes?

The big question still surrounding the film, of course, is who really made the movie — credited director Tobe Hooper, or Steven Spielberg, the producer whose hands-on approach led some observers to cry foul.

Buy, rent or watch 'Poltergeist'. Ravens and rottweilers are unaccountably drawn to angel-faced Damien, and anyone who starts asking questions — an innocent nanny, a crusading priest, a sceptical journalist — is knocked off in spectacular fashion.

But it still chills to the bone. Try a tender, humane tale of love and betrayal. Director Tod Browning had himself run away from school to join the circus.

Buy, rent or watch 'Freaks'. So many keynotes of the genre emerge fully formed here: the use of light and shadow, threat and tension, beauty and ugliness, a man in grotesque make-up threatening an innocent girl.

Buy, rent or watch 'Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror'. The use of wide angles is gorgeously unsettling — director Robert Wise is clearly a student of Orson Welles, whose off-kilter influence is all over the film.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Haunting'. Or the aforementioned young lady, whose meek and mild exterior hides a dark secret?

Buy, rent or watch 'Audition'. And while the franchise may have descended swiftly into self-parody — they marketed Freddy Krueger dolls to pre-teens, if you recall — the original remains one of the most daring, inventive and downright terrifying shockers of the last century.

Cheers, Freddy. Buy, rent or watch 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. Boy meets vampire An instant classic? If its position in the top is anything to go by, then yes.

Buy, rent or watch 'An American Werewolf in London'. Buy, rent or watch 'Carrie'. Suffer the little children Kids are creepy enough in real life, with their pliable morals and tiny little hands.

Still, the movies always manage to take it a step further. Buy, rent or watch 'Don't Look Now'. The beginning of the end The film that changed it all, that took horror out of the realm of creaky castles and mad science and into the harsh light of the modern day.

Director George Romero insists that much of what made his debut so groundbreaking — the in-your-face documentary camerawork, the unadorned interiors and unpolished performances — were just the necessary result of zero-budget filmmaking.

Buy, rent or watch 'Night of the Living Dead'. Out the window go plot, character development and common sense; in the creaky-hinged front door come high style, visual splendour and an almost childlike anti-logic.

Buy, rent or watch 'Suspiria'. Boy meets girl. They slink off to skinny dip. She runs ahead, throwing off her clothes, splashing into the water Welcome to the tourist island of Amity.

The shark looked fake, the effects were terrible. Parents have scooped up their children, all but one mother, a look of blind terror on her face.

For some cinema lovers, the biggest horror story of all is that with his game-changing big hit, Spielberg inadvertently invented the popcorn blockbuster.

Buy, rent or watch 'Jaws'. Is that a carving knife in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me? Buy, rent or watch 'Halloween'.

There are some more explicit key scenes — a potential nighttime rape and a chilling climax — that serve to get right under our skin without making the whole premise seem ridiculous.

Buy, rent or watch 'Rosemary's Baby'. By confronting audiences with everyday horrors; by knowingly manipulating them into sympathising with a murderer; by offering an amoral, adulterous heroine then bumping her off so savagely; by mocking Freudian psychology and the pompous stuffed-shirts who practice it; by pushing an image of America as a trap-laden labyrinth populated by creepy cops and nice-as-pie psychopaths; and by implying that women brace yourself now actually use the toilet sometimes, Hitch helped pave the way for all the cultural earthquakes and moral rebalancing acts that the coming decade had to offer.

And he did it all with a wink and a smile. Buy, rent or watch 'Psycho'. Buy, rent or watch 'Alien'. Sequels and remakes have come thick and fast, but nothing will ever match your first encounter with the original and its brutal, hammer-over-the-head power.

Nicholson is Jack Torrance, a writer working as a caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in the Colorado mountains over winter. Stephen King, on whose novel the film was based, was famously unimpressed.

He resented Kubrick for stripping out the supernatural elements of his story. Torrance is not tortured by ghosts but by inadequacy and alcoholism.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Shining'. On the other, there were the more outrageous dream-horrors popular in Europe, the work of Hammer Studios in the UK and Mario Bava and Dario Argento in Italy, films that prized artistry, oddity and explicit gore over narrative logic.

In cutting from the clanging bazaars of Iraq to the quiet streets of Georgetown, in blending dizzying dream sequences with starkly believable human drama, Friedkin created a horror movie like no other — both brutal and beautiful, artful and exploitative, exploring wacked-out religious concepts with the clinical precision of an agnostic scientist.

Horror has traditionally been a genre bent on entertainment — however twisted — and so reminders of real-world tragedy tend to stifle the fun.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Babadook'. Elisabeth Moss plays Cecilia, an architect traumatised by her abusive tech entrepreneur husband Griffin Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Soon, Griffin is reported dead by suicide. But is he? And why have things started going bump in the night? Whannell is respectful to the classic Universal monster movie with which it shares its name look out for a cameo from those trademark bandages , but this is no reverential retread.

It has ideas of its own, specifically around the way an abusive relationship can turn life into a prison. Moss, needless to say, makes a killer scream-queen.

On one level this is pure throwback, an old-school tentacles-and-all monster movie which really comes alive in its glittering monochrome DVD version.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Mist'. Jesus loves you… a little too much The horror game can be tough. Larry Cohen is without question one of the most inventive, idiosyncratic American writer-directors of the s, his outstanding oeuvre spanning low-budget social commentary, low-rent blaxploitation and a handful of the most politically engaged horror films ever made.

When he interacts with the children, he drools, as if starved, ravenous to consume them and their fear. Buy, rent or watch 'Braindead'.

Buy, rent or watch 'Dead Ringers'. Buy, rent or watch 'Day of the Dead'. That synopsis should offer some insight into the kind of boiling Freudian gumbo Browning serves up.

This is a giddy, subversive, wonderfully watchable silent shocker. Buy, rent or watch 'The Unknown'. Peter Mullan is superbly cast as Gordon, the boss of an asbestos removal company tasked with clearing out an abandoned mental hospital.

One of the first movies to be shot on HD digital video, the film has an unearthly, real-but-not-real sheen that adds immeasurably to its heart-stopping atmosphere of impending doom.

The film provoked outrage in many quarters, but, viewed now, any claims that it is pornographic seem ridiculous. But with proper financial backing and almost total creative freedom, these films were a world away from the cheapo grit of the grindhouse: directors like Stuart Gordon, Frank Henenlotter and Don Coscarelli had the funding to realise visions which would have been impossible a few years before, resulting in some of the most idiosyncratic movies in the horror canon.

Over the course of three wild sequels, Coscarelli expanded his bizarre universe in a variety of imaginative and deliriously entertaining ways — but the original set the standard.

Buy, rent or watch 'Phantasm'. Situation: A sequel that retcons all other sequels. Putting it politely, they varied in quality.

This sequel, however, retcons the previous entries, instead focusing on the implications that being chased by a knife-wielding psychopath wearing a white mask can have.

Michael Myers and his stab-happy ways feel particularly chilling, with director David Gordon opting to build tension over cheap thrills.

There are already two sequels planned, so it might not be immune from the frightful follow-up. Several directors have tried; none have survived the night.

Buy, rent or watch 'Dracula'. Buy, rent or watch 'Black Sabbath'. That anxiety resonates with anyone stifled by conformity, not just Ike-era suburbanites but the makers of movies and art.

Buy, rent or watch 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'. But the damage it did to the Swedish tourist board — floral festivals have never looked so terrifying — was more than offset by its magisterial creeps and a stellar turn from Florence Pugh as a grieving woman drawn slowly into a sunlit fugue state.

It just makes the experience all the more terrifying. Actor-turned-first-time-director John Krasinski shows an almost Hitchcockian command of tension as the slightest creak or spillage can bring slathering hell-beasts raining down from the surrounding countryside.

Emily Blunt, meanwhile, steals the show in front of the camera: the childbirth scene, in particular, will never leave you.

Blunt and co will reprise their roles for the sequel, which also adds Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou to the cast, and which is due in Wolfing around The best teenage werewolf movie, period.

A word of warning, though: the unnecessary sequels are best avoided. Buy, rent or watch 'Ginger Snaps'. This is a film of lurking shadows and creeping gloom, unfashionably cosy in its dedication to the Victorian tradition of ghostly goings-on.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Fog'. By solving the puzzle, Frank enters the world of exquisite cruelty presided over by Pinhead Bradley and his fellow Cenobites — glamorous sadists with a penchant for ripped flesh and transcendent pain.

Buy, rent or watch 'Hellraiser'. Buy, rent or watch 'Black Sunday'. Anticipating many now familiar conventions, Clark cranks up the level of threat through his pioneering use of prowling shots from the psycho killer's point of view, reinforced here by a discordant sound design.

Buy, rent or watch 'Black Christmas'. Buy, rent or watch 'Aliens'. Thank goodness! What a tragedy it would have been to lose this deliciously ghoulish comedy of manners.

Its inmates, the Femm family, are quite frankly bonkers. Upstairs, their year-old dad is bedridden and Saul their pyromaniac brother is locked in the attic, while Morgan the mad butler Karloff is getting fighting-drunk in the kitchen.

When a coroner is called to a small town to inspect the corpse of a maid, he finds a silver coin inserted into her heart.

The village is suffering under an ancient curse — and those who speak out about it meet bloody and untimely ends. A tale of hypnotism, hysteria and multiple murder set in a twisted, folksy German landscape filtered through the disturbed imagination of a madman, its fractured landscapes reflect the shattered psyche of a nation in defeat, but they also prefigure the greater horrors to come.

And almost a century later, at least one sequence here remains genuinely frightening: the midnight attack on a helpless young woman by a shambling, somnambulant strangler.

Hate crime If every generation gets the zombies its deserves, what would ours be like? The disease quickly spreads through the British population, turning people into berserk zombies.

One month later, in a London hospital, bicycle courier Jim Cillian Murphy wakes up from a coma, to find London cloaked in an unearthly silence.

There are scenes here that will send a shiver down your spine, such as the swarm of rats running in terror from an approaching undead horde. Buy, rent or watch '28 Days Later But producer Hal E Chester insisted the flaming beast make two personal appearances to bookend this tale of an American psychologist, Dr Holden Andrews , a world-renowned paranormal sceptic.

But the French-born director knew his business and elsewhere gives an object lesson in frightening the audience out their seats with the mere placing of a hand on a banister.

Scriptwriter Charles Bennett was likewise enraged by the demon: "If [Chester, the producer] walked up my driveway right now, I'd shoot him dead.

Vive le difference! The imaginatively gruesome killings and chase scenes come thick and fast and the nerve-jangling sound design exacerbates the tension, making it virtually unbearable.

Then, with one staggeringly ill-judged and gob-smackingly offensive plot twist, the entire film falls apart. Buy, rent or watch 'Switchblade Romance'.

Soul-sucking spectres appear online and spread like a virus. Withdrawing from the world, they become lethargic, depressed and ultimately suicidal.

Tokyo slides towards a state of spiritual decay and social entropy. But this is merely a loose framework within which Fulci goes all out to upset and horrify his audience: faces melt inexplicably, tarantulas rip out human tongues, zombies rise from the grave, eyes are repeatedly torn out.

The result is more accurately nightmarish than almost any other film on this list, a true descent into the depths of meaningless, unpredictable, terrifyingly beautiful horror, with a scorpion-sharp sting in the tail.

A surprise entry on our list, this appallingly titled micro-budget Australian offering made waves at the SXSW film festival in , then promptly vanished off the radar.

Told in mock-doc style, the film recounts the eerie, possibly supernatural events that occurred in the remote Aussie town of Ararat following a tragic drowning at the local reservoir.

Buy, rent or watch 'Lake Mungo'. There are strong ties to the genre: Robert Mitchum plays Harry Powell, a murderous preacher whose pursuit of hidden booty leads him to hunt down a pair of hapless orphaned children through a mystical Southern dreamscape.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Night of the Hunter'. First, there are the grotesque characters, each horrific enough in their own way, from the boo-hiss headmaster Paul Meurisse to his nervy wife Vera Clouzot and bullish mistress Signoret.

Buy, rent or watch 'Les Diaboliques'. Whatever you witness The jolts on offer are up there with the best of them, and lesser filmmakers are still trying to mimic the chilling last shot.

Dreyer spun his cinematic nightmare from two stories from a Sheridan Le Fanu collection. It stars Nicolas de Gunzburg a Russian aristocrat who bankrolled the film, appearing under the alias Julian West as an occult-obsessed young man who visits a French village haunted by a vampire.

The lord of the manor dies and his young daughter is gravely ill, bite wounds to her neck. Buy, rent or watch 'Vampyr'.

Where did our love go? The rest of the film is powerful stuff — Bervoets plays a young man whose girlfriend is snatched at French truck stop by serial murderer Donnadieu, an otherwise ordinary family man.

Buy, rent or watch 'The Vanishing'. Child star Haley Joel Osment what happened to him? Buy, rent or watch 'The Sixth Sense'. In this case he was on his uppers — flat broke in London — and was offered the chance to make a horror film.
