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.
