  1. 1. The Shining

    One of the Stanley Kubrick’s masterpieces is about a man, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), which accepts a job as a caretaker at the Hotel Overlook. He moves in with his wife and son during winter time, when it’s empty and isolated. In the movie, Jack goes crazy and tries to murder his family.

  2. 2. Hereditary

After the grandmother dies, the Graham family – which consists of a father, mother and their kids, a 16-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl - is haunted by a demon. It was a success and the critical response was very good – watch it and you will understand why.

  3. 3. A Quiet Place

    The 2018 movie was directed by John Krasinski (Jim from The Office, which we all know and miss), who also co-starred in it with his wife, Emily Blunt.

  4. 4. Psycho

    This classic was directed by the famous Alfred Hitchcock and tells the history of Marion Crane, a secretary, and her tragic encounter with the crazy Norman Bates.

After some horrible things happen, we discover that the things may not be what we thought they were.

  6. 6. Get Out

    A young African-American photographer (Daniel Kaluuya) is convinced by his white girlfriend (Allison Williams) to leave the city and visit her parents for a weekend.

As the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

  7. 7. You’re Next

    Directed by Adam Wingard, You’re Next is one of those horror movies about home-invasion. But what makes it different is the fact that the gang of masked people who attacks the house of a wealthy family didn’t expect that one of the victims had a secret talent for fighting back.
