The Exorcist: In its ability to take an innocent appearing teenage girl (Linda Blair) and make her the most evil entity conceivable, The Exorcist is a mark of mastery by the film’s director, William Friedkin. Wrong Turn 5 director Declan O'Brien even names it as the scariest movie of all time in our upcoming exclusive interview with him! The Exorcist handily beat 28 Days Later to advance to the second round. Check out our Exorcist quotes page for more.


Misery: Kathy Bates' physical and psychological torture of James Caan is enthralling and terrifying in this Oscar-winning 90s horror classic. Misery upset Rosemary's Baby 54.2% to 45.8% to move on to round two. Check out our Misery quotes page for more.

Misery Quotes

Annie Wilkes: When I was growing up in Bakersfield, my favourite thing in the whole world was to go to the movies on Saturday afternoons for the Chapter Plays.
Paul Sheldon: Cliffhangers.
Annie Wilkes: I know that, Mr. Man! They also called them serials. I'm not stupid you know... Anyway, my favorite was Rocketman, and once it was a no breaks chapter. The bad guy stuck him in a car on a mountain road and knocked him out and welded the door shut and tore out the brakes and started him to his death, and he woke up and tried to steer and tried to get out but the car went off a cliff before he could escape! And it crashed and burned and I was so upset and excited, and the next week, you better believe I was first in line. And they always start with the end of the last week. And there was Rocketman, trying to get out, and here comes the cliff, and just before the car went off the cliff, he jumped free! And all the kids cheered! But I didn't cheer. I stood right up and started shouting. This isn't what happened last week! Have you all got amnesia? They just cheated us! This isn't fair!!

I am your number one fan. There is nothing to worry about. You are going to be just fine. I am your number one fan!

Annie Wilkes
