10. Annabelle Comes Home - The Ferryman

Look, I'm as shocked to see this movie on this list as you are. However, the most recent Conjuring offshoot was really rather good and included a few genuinely creepy moments to support its novelly simple storyline.

9. It Chapter Two - Under the Bleacher

It's difficult to choose which scenario in Chapter Two should be dubbed the most scary one because the chapter is filled with such bizarre visuals. There are a couple scenes in the movie that are so outrageously over-the-top that I physically felt my brain disconnect several times as it battled to make sense of what I was watching.

8. Brightburn - The Car Attack

Although Brightburn, a slasher film retelling of the Superman origin myth, never quite manages to live up to the brilliance of its idea, there are some truly outstanding moments. Brandon (Jackson A. Dunn) is a wicked young man who possesses the legendary Kryptonian talents. 

7. Pet Sematary - Bringing Ellie Home

Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, the same filmmaking team behind the grotesquely terrifying and unquestionably memorable Starry Eyes, gave us the unexpectedly terrific Pet Sematary adaptation.

6. Parasite - The Man on the Stairs

Although the film Parasite isn't a horror film, its director Bong Joon-ho has frequently flirted with the subgenre. The Kims are the subject of the movie; they are a struggling South Korean family with few work options.

5. Lords of Chaos - The Murder in the Park

It doesn't initially seem like the dramatisation of the genuinely bizarre events that led to the foundation of the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem and the subsequent death of one of its founding members would be either amusing or spooky, but it manages to be both.

4. Under the Silver Lake - The Owl Woman 

Although the neo-noir black comedy thriller about the sordid side of Hollywood's wealthy class, Under the Silver Lake, isn't technically a horror film, it does include a considerable amount of spooky material. 

3. Us - Red’s Speech

Although the neo-noir black comedy thriller about the sordid side of Hollywood's wealthy class, Under the Silver Lake, isn't technically a horror film, it does include a considerable amount of spooky material.

2. Doctor Sleep - The Baseball Boy Murder

I said before that one of the most terrible murder sequences in movie history may be found in Lords of Chaos. Do you remember? I guess Mike Flanagan heard me say that because he requested the universe to hold his drink.

1. Midsommar - The Murder/Suicide

I went into Midsommar expecting to see more of the brain-slashing imagery director Ari Aster unleashed on us in his previous film Hereditary, and I was not disappointed.
