For some people, horror films are actually one of the adrenaline boosters in fighting fear itself. However, there are also many of them who watch by ‘covering’ their faces with their hands, you know. Which team do you belong to when watching horror movies? So, below are some recommendations for best mixed horror films to fill this weekend.

1. The Exorcist (1973)


This film received the title as the best horror film of all time. It tells the story of a mother’s attempt to cure her daughter who is possessed by a demon through an exorcism (exorcism ritual) performed by two priests. The film received 10 Oscar nominations and won two of them, namely for Best Sound Design and Best Adapted Screenplay.


With a gross income of USD 402 million, it’s no wonder that The Exorcist is called the most profitable horror film of all time. This film was also banned from showing in several countries because the story was too terrible. Dare to watch?

2. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)


Who doesn’t know the scary figure of Freddy Krueger? This character first appeared in the horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Wes Craven. During his lifetime, Freddy Krueger was a child killer. This man in a hat also died because he was burned alive by the community. It turns out that Freddy’s spirit still often haunts and hunts children through dreams. This horror film, which became one of actor Johnny Depp’s debuts, immediately made a profit in just a week of screening.

3. The Ring (1998)


Guaranteed you can’t sleep alone all night after watching the best horror movie, The Rings. Even if watching with the lights on though. The scene of Sadako’s ghost that comes out of the well and can come to people who are watching it on television, will definitely stick in my head. This mixed horror film from Japan is indeed phenomenal, so a Hollywood version was made in 2002, and there were also The Ring Two (2005) and Rings (2017).

4. Friday The 13th (1980)


Western culture always stays away from Friday, which coincides with the 13th. This is what makes one of the recommendations for the next horror film fall on Friday the 13th. It is considered the scariest horror film. This film tells the story of a serial killer by a mysterious figure against a group of teenagers who are camping. That said, many viewers discouraged camping after seeing this horror film.

5. Paranormal Activity (2007)


Paranormal Activity is a film that is quite phenomenal among horror lovers. The film, which was reportedly made with a limited budget, turned out to be quite successful and managed to make as much profit as possible. This film only contains two main players with a few extras set in a house.

Paranormal Activity tells the story of a young couple who often receive supernatural disturbances after midnight until morning. Initially, the couple, namely Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) were skeptical. They finally decided to install a video camera in the house so that the tense night activities were recorded. After installing a video camera in his house, the supernatural disturbance gets more gripping. The audience will be surprised by every scene.
