14. ‘Silence of the Lambs’ (1991)
Memorable quote: “It puts the lotion on its skin.”
Scare factor: An incredibly disturbing serial killer is on the loose, and the FBI seeks the assistance of an even more disturbing — yet somehow very charming — serial killer in a maximum security prison. Unlike most horror movies, the conversations here are scarier than the gore. But fear not, the gore doesn’t disappoint.
