Top 10 Scariest Movies: Halloween (1978)
How do you top a scary movie like Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho? You cast lead actress Janet Leigh's daughter -- Jamie Lee Curtis -- as the next generation's scream queen. Besides all but inventing the slasher genre, John Carpenter's Halloween remains one of the most profitable independent horror films of all time -- costing a $300,000 and pulling in more than $55 million at the box office.
