Top 50 scariest movies of all time
7. Halloween (1978)
Memorable quote: I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply evil.
Scare factor: It isnt just that Michael Myers is a homicidal maniac. Hes a homicidal maniac who wears a mask that carries an expression of pure blankness, as if killing is boring. This film set the standard for all supernatural serial killer films to follow. And it stars a very young Jamie Lee Curtis.
