My Top 10 Horror Movies of All Time

Zachary Martinez

Horror Movies are always fun to watch with friends or family. They give a quick thrill during anytime of the year, especially around Halloween time. Horror Films are Movies that look to extract fear from the viewers that watch these films, unless you’re like me and watch these things for fun.  Most people watch these movies while giving out candy during Halloween or just during Halloween season, but in my opinion I think it would be fun to catch a thrill anytime of year. I am going to give you my top 10 list of horror movies that I think are the scariest, so grab some snacks, a blanket, and possibly some form of protection because you’re probably going to be paranoid and scared at some point of this binge watching of scary movies.

She starts acting really bizarre, stealing , cussing, and even unusual amounts of strength. Then when it is beyond strange and scary, Regan starts acting even weirder.
