Halloween 2013 may have a few scary movies to offer but if you're looking into doing a movie marathon on Hallow's Eve, these top-grossing scary movies should be in your list.
1. The Exorcist (1973) - $232 million
The Exorcist released in 1973 is always included in every scary movies list and with good reason -it's one of the best. The R-rated horror is one of the top grossing scary movies of all time and it has aged very well.
2. Ring (1998) - $137.7 million
The Japanese horror directed by Hideo Nakata revolves around a videotape that bears a curse. The curse kills the viewer of the tape in seven days.
Its 2002 remake made $129 million and was released just in time for Halloween 2002.
3. Silence of the Lambs (1991) - $131 million
A horror film for adults, The Silence of the Lambs is a gothic fairy tale. On top all the thrill the film manages to provide its audience, Anthony Hopkins's Oscar-winning role Hannibal Lecter is one character many moviegoers are never going to forget.
In fact, the film was so good that it sparked the beginning of the serial killer genre.
4. Hannibal (2001) - $165 million
Fans of Silence of the Lambs were quite excited when Hannibal was released in 2001, ten years after the first film about Hannibal. The much-anticipated sequel can be classified as an adult slasher film and is one of he R-rated blockbusters of its time.
5. The Mummy (1999) - $155.3 million
Although the Brendan Fraser film is a mix of Indiana Jones and a bit of horror, the PG-13 movie is still a great addition for a Halloween movie marathon. One would argue that it's more of like Raiders of the Lost Ark but it's the perfect horror flick for kids.
6. World War Z (2013) - $202 million
Everyone has an opinion about World War Z but if you want a zombie movie with the family, this PG-13 movie starring Brad Pitt is a good choice.
There's not much blood in this movie but a good two hours of zombies eating the flesh of those who are still alive gives viewers a bit of thrill -good enough for an unforgettable Halloween 2013 with the family.
