The 10 Most Unsettling Movies You’ll Ever Watch

Are you a sucker for psyching yourself out with spooky films or psychological thrillers? You've got company.

Recently someone inquired, “What movie is guaranteed to get under your skin and creep you out, no matter how many times you watch it?” 

“Mine are The Exorcist and the original Evil Dead. The makeup in both movies was so far ahead of their time and just terrifying. I still get nervous while watching The Exorcist alone, lol. 10/10 movies!” Here are the top-voted responses.

One user admitted, “Funny Games got to me. I watched it for the first time for my Horror film class in university and sat there with a real sense of dread for a long time.”

“My wife and I tried to do The Strangers again and turned it off. Too much. The randomness is what gets me,” a Redditor replied.

One user shared, “It's still the only movie that's given me that childlike sense of I've gotta sleep with the lights on in my entire adulthood. The snuff films with dark ambient tunes are brilliant. I don't think I'll ever see another movie that'll affect me as Sinister did."

“I've read a lot of polarizing stuff about the movie, particularly about how the third act fell apart or wasn't scary, but it sure creeped me out. I thought it was a solid film. But I'll also never watch it again. The lingering takes on Jane Doe's lifeless face give me shivers,”

“That's one of the only films that has ever messed me up. But, besides being one of the best horrors of all time IMO…it was one of the best films to come out that year, easily.”
