‘The Strangers,’ ‘Alien,’ ‘Evil Dead II’: Celebuzz Editors Pick Their Favorite Scary Movies (PHOTOS)

Check out this list of the scariest movies ever!
Everybody loves a good scare at the movies — including the Celebuzz editorial team!

Because sometimes the holidays can be a little frightening, we’re ringing in the season with a rundown of our favorite terror-filled flicks. From the sublime scares of Alien to the retro slasher joys of Nightmare on Elm Street, we cover all sub-genres and eras of Hollywood horror greatness.

So forget holiday specials — we’re cleansing our post-Christmas feast palettes with our favorite scary movies.

Celebuzz’s Contributing Editor Scott Bernberg chose the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise because of the gritty camera style used to tell the tale of the most terrifying family ever placed on film. Meanwhile, Staff Editor Gabrielle Chung thought The Strangers was the scariest thing she’s seen because it portrayed people who “just want to see the world burn down.”

To see all of our editor’s picks, check out the gallery above — and share your favorite horror movies in the comments section below.
