Arachnophobia

If a spider in the bath gives you the shivers, this isn’t the film for you. When a deadly arachnid is inadvertently brought back from the Amazon, it sparks a wave of mysterious deaths.

The Blair Witch Project

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise. The college students who venture off in search of the Blair Witch had clearly never heard that line or they’d have stayed well away. Ground-breaking in its time for its found-footage style, this ‘is it real or not?’ horror movie is captivating and chilling in equal measure.

But with a shapeshifting demon preying on their deepest, darkest fears, can they stick together to take down the clown? Warning: if you didn’t suffer from coulrophobia before, this Stephen King horror movie adaptation could induce a full-on fear of all things clown-y.

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Francis Ford Coppola’s take on the 1897 novel puts a romantic spin on the original vampire tale. Four hundred years after the death of his wife Elisabeta, a grieving Count Dracula sets his heart on her doppelganger, a young woman he believes to be a reincarnation of his love. Setting off from Transylvania for London to win her over, only the vampire-hunter Van Helsing stands in his way.

Blade

Half human, half immortal, vampire-hunter Blade is on a mission to avenge his mother’s death. But little does he know that the dark underworld he’s about to take on is in the grip of a power struggle of its own. Blood thirsty and hell-bent on wresting control from his elders, young vampire Deacon Frost is out to destroy the pure-bloods and wipe out humanity. Cue bloody battles set to a pumping 90s soundtrack – a weird but ultimately winning horror movie combo.

Saw

When two strangers wake up chained to the pipes of a bathroom, there seems to be one obvious way out. But the games are just beginning…Gripping and gory, the first of the Saw horror movies is undoubtedly the best, and well worth a watch. Just make sure you’ve got something (or someone) to hide behind when the going gets gruesome.
