These Are the Scariest Movies of All Time According to Science

A new study explored horror movies and how they can actually cause pleasure for humans. Researchers from Aarhus University shared that it's been suspected for years that physiological arousal plays a role in why people find horror movies and haunted houses so exciting. A recent poll also found that 63 percent of Americans believe in the paranormal in some form.

These studies are important when talking about the chosen top scary movies of all time. StudyFinds compiled a list of the best horror films to watch this Halloween season. This list is ranked by experts!

  1. The Exorcist (1973)
  2. Halloween (1978)
  3. Paranormal Activity (2007)
  4. The Shining (1980)
  5. It Follows (2014)

The show then talked about their choices for their favorite/scariest scary movie of all time. Eddie says the scariest was Blair Witch Project, Lunchbox thinks his favorite and scariest is It, Amy's choice was The Ring, and Bobby's choice was 28 Days Later because it nearly happened in real life.
