IMDb Rating: 7.5/10
Cast:- Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joseph Bishara.
The Perron family had moved into a farmhouse where they witness events which are supernatural. Moreover, they meet with demonologists, Ed and Lorraine, to help them get rid of the dark spirit that haunts them. It’s so disturbing, so most of it is focused on true events. This is why this movie holds no. 1 in the list of Best Hollywood Horror Movies Of All Time. It’s even more plausible because of the involvement of the actual ghost hunters, Ed and Loraine Warren. The house does exist and there’s a lot of the past behind it. Some of it is clearly sensationalized, from which a lot of fear comes. The settings are dark and intense with a great deal of tension that makes it far more challenging. A lot of action that you’d like is reserved for the second half, so obviously the first half appears as a slow-paced, repetitive story -setting of character material. James Wan takes his time with the characters he has created to build a soft spot.
IMDb Rating: 7.3/10
Cast:-Milly Shapiro, Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Ann Dowd.

It Follows (2015)
IMDb Rating: 6.8/10
Cast:-Maika Monroe, Lili Sepe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary.
Since carefree teenager Jay (Maika Monroe) sleeps for the first time with her new partner, Hugh (Jake Weary), she discovers she is the newest beneficiary of a deadly curse passed from victim to victim by sexual intercourse. Death, Jay discovers, will be steadily moving towards her, either as a relative or as a stranger. Jay’s friends don’t trust her increasingly delusional ravings until they, too, start seeing the phantom assassins and band together to help her escape or protect themselves. The nameless, shapeless terror that stalks the blond, 19-year-old Jay (MaikaMonroe) in the calm, guided horror film David Robert Mitchell, “It Follows,” may be described as the very embodiment of paranoia. The threat, which only she can see, takes all kinds of forms, from a naked man stood on a house’s roof to an expressionless old lady heading intentionally in her direction. Once it emerges, it’s normally first glimpsed from a distance, creeping slowly toward her like a zombie without language. While Jay tries to escape repeatedly, she can never shake the feeling of being out there somewhere and knowing her exact location.
The Witch (2015)
IMDb Rating: 6.9/10
Cast:- Anya Taylor-Joy, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ralph Ineson, Sarah Stephens, Kate Dickie.
A rejected Puritan family built up a farm in 17th-century New England on the edge of a wide, remote forest, where no other family lives. But then, evil powers begin to threaten them. Forcibly removed from the bosom of their only pilgrim group, in the mid-17th century New England the troubled patriarch William and his Puritan family set up a poor farmhouse on the edge of a wide and dark wood. As the impoverished family attempts to adjust in their new isolated farm, tragedy will strike early, as their infant son disappears into thin air, and shortly afterward many unexpected and horrific natural disasters will hit the God-fearing farmers. This is simply one of the great Hollywood Horror Movies.

IMDb Rating: 7.7/10
Cast:- Daniel Kaluuya, Lakeith Stanfield, Caleb Landry Jones, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford.
During a weekend trip, Chris, an African-American man, goes to meet parents of his Caucasian girlfriend. While at first they seem natural, he is not prepared to encounter the horrors that lie ahead. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) has achieved the meeting-the-parents milestone of dating with his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), she invites him upstate for a weekend trip with Missy and Dean.

IMDb Rating: 8.4/10
Cast:- Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, YaphetKotto, John Hurt, Veronica Cartwright.

The Exorcist (1973)
IMDb Rating: 8/10
Cast:- Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn, Jack MacGowran, Max Von Sydow, Jason Miller.
Not only one of the Best Hollywood Horror Movies, but one of the Greatest Horror Films Of All Time. It may not be the Scariest Movie Of All Time, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a masterpiece. One actress observes harmful changes in her 12-year-old daughter’s attitudes and physical makeup. Meanwhile, while battling with his mother’s illness, a young priest starts to doubt his faith. This tale of an exorcism is actually based on true facts, one of the most popular horror movies ever made. As young Regan (Linda Blair) begins to act weird — levitating, speak in tongues — she seeks medical attention from her concerned mother (Ellen Burstyn), only to find an impasse. However, a local priest (Jason Miller) thinks the child may be possessed by the devil. The priest calls for an exorcism, and the church appoints an expert to help with this complex task. This is why this movie holds no. 11 in the list of Best Horror Movies Of All Time.
The Thing (1982)
IMDb Rating: 8.1/10
Cast:- Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, Keith David.

When the party is targeted one by one by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen), who wears a human skin mask, the survivors have to do their best to flee.
