It is difficult for a horror movie to age well. What scared us one year, might not be so frightening with the passage of time. 

We present 11 horror flicks that still frighten us to our core. No matter how many times we've seen these flicks, they still cause us to tremor. 

Click through and see our 11 horror movies that still scare us. 

1. The Shining

The Shining
Here's Johnny, indeed! Years later, we still can't look at Jack Nicholson in anything without thinking of him busting through that door with an axe or chasing his son through the snow or telling Wendy he was not going to hurt her. Yeah, how'd that work out?

2. The Exorcist

The Exorcist
The Exorcist had to be on this list. It is an absolute horror classic and no matter how many times you've seen it, it still haunts.

3. The Evil Dead

The Evil Dead
The original The Evil Dead was a unique kind of fear-spawning piece of cinema. The remake, although we enjoyed it, could never capture the cinematic terror of the original.

4. The Conjuring

The Conjuring
Sure, The Conjuring is a recent movie. But, there is no way the horror explored in this James Wan movie will ever abate.

5. The Thing

The Thing
The Thing with Kurt Russell was one of the rare remakes that was better than the original. And the recent remake of the Russell film was pale in comparison. The Thing, circa 1982, is drop dead scary. Period.

6. Psycho

Alfred Hitchock was urged not to make Psycho. Thank goodness he did because almost 50 years later... it still scares. Try watching this classic and taking a shower in peace. Yeah, good luck with that.
