Video-rental company Redbox recently asked its customers to name the horror movie that scares them the most, and the results include a mix of classic films and more-recent thrillers.
The survey, conducted September 11 to September 18, included 1,200 respondents through the online Redbox Customer Panel. The survey also asked respondents to name which is their favorite family-friendly Halloween movie.
The top five family Halloween movies among Redbox customers are below:
- Hocus Pocus
- It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Hotel Transylvania
And below are the top five scariest movies of all time, according to Redbox customers:
5. „Saw“ (2004)
James Wan’s „Saw,“ about a madman that devises cunning traps for his victims, is just as much a crime-thriller as it is a horror movie — though the line between those genres can often blur (see, „Seven“). But it kicked off a grisly eight-movie franchise that symbolized Halloween for nearly a decade.
4. „The Shining“ (1980)
Stanley Kubrick’s Stephen King adaptation delivers a spine-tingling Jack Nicholson performance — he plays writer Jack Torrance, who falls deep into madness and terrorizes his family at the infamous Overlook Hotel.
3. „The Ring“ (2002)
In Gore Verbinski’s remake of Japanese horror film „Ringu,“ a video warns of the viewer’s death in seven days. It drove its fictional viewers mad, but entranced real-life moviegoers.
