Psychological horror films are often considered to be the most terrifying type of horror film. These movies will leave you feeling scared and disturbed, as they manipulate your emotions.
The horror movies 2022 is a list of the top 50 psychological horror movies that are currently available.
We like a broad variety of scary movies. Some people may associate the term “horror” with well-known horror characters such as zombies, Frankenstein’s monster, vampires, and so on, which is OK. Others may get on the slasher train, with huge, terrifying baddies like Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers slaughtering innocent victims and scream queens one by one—those are also great.
Psychological horror, on the other hand, is perhaps the most underrated yet much-loved genre of horror, with films that don’t revolve on a supernatural entity or event (though they do sometimes!) Instead, concentrate on a systematic, slow deconstruction of a mind.
These tales may take place in virtually any location. It may happen during a criminal investigation, such as the search for a killer or suspect. It may take place in a city at times. It might happen at home, at a ballet performance, or as a result of aging—anyone can have these experiences. And, in the end, that’s the point: not only do our characters, but we, the audience, feel disconnected from reality. And, at the end of the day, it is our brains that are being messed with.
Some of the best films you’ll ever watch come from this genre. Is it possible to imagine life before Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining? The past 40 years of great horror pictures have come from a masterpiece that basically shaped the atmosphere (and included a quasi-sequel in Doctor Sleep from director Mike Flanagan).
There’s a whole lot more where that came from. Blumhouse, the studio behind Get Out and Happy Death Day, virtually exclusively produces films that fall under this category, either directly or obliquely. With a four-pack of new releases (part of the “Welcome to the Blumhouse” collection on Amazon Prime Video), they’re not slowing down.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves—no there’s use in talking about the future when there are so many great psychological horror films to watch right now. So, without further ado, here are the greatest psychological horror films of all time.
1. We (2019)
Jordan Peele is the director.
Adelaide, now a mother of two, reluctantly returns to their beautiful lake home with her husband, Gabe, for their summer vacation, not far from the sun-kissed Santa Cruz beach where she had a traumatic childhood event.
Despite this, Adelaide can’t shake the uncomfortable feeling that her terrifying encounter with her odd doppelgänger would come back to haunt her and her family.
Indeed, the happy vacationers’ greatest fear will come true at the end of the day, when a malevolent quartet with an uncanny resemblance to them waits in their driveway. They then grab their razor-sharp scissors from their bag. What do “they” hope to get out of them?
2. The Candy Man (1992)
Bernard Rose is the director.
Candyman follows a doctorate student (Virginia Madsen) who is researching the Candyman legend (Tony Todd). Candyman is said to be the reincarnation of a black man murdered by a lynch mob who now exacts vengeance on residents of Chicago’s projects who repeat his name three times in the mirror. Madsen doesn’t believe it, but as an experienced horror lover, you know better. Take a look at our Candyman review.
Jaws (n.) (1975)
Steven Spielberg is the director.
Only one week before the annual Fourth of July festivities, Martin Brody, the new police chief of the tiny summer resort town of Amity Island, has reason to believe that the mangled corpse of a missing teenage swimmer discovered washed up on the beach is the work of a predatory shark. Brody insists on shutting the beaches for the protection of unsuspecting tourists; but, money and Mayor Larry Vaughn get in the way of security, culminating in a succession of additional terrible assaults.
All eyes are now on the deep blue water, as Brody, marine researcher Matt Hooper, and professional shark killer Quint are on the lookout for the undisputed king of the sea. A massive, slate-grey great white shark cruises the seas, looking for human meat. Will they be able to outsmart the ultimate undersea man-eater and avoid its massive jaws?
4. The Devil’s Mansion (2009)
Ti West is the director.
Unwillingly agreeing to babysit for a total freak (great character actor Tom Noonan), a college student (Jocelin Donahue) discovers that everything is wrong in his home. The horror is tinged with early 1980s nostalgia (satanic dread, Dee Wallace Stone), and it hits you so hard you barely have time to process it.
5. Don’t Look Right Now (1973)
Nicolas Roeg is the director of this film.
John Baxter and his wife, Laura, go to cold, winter Venice, Italy, unable to deal with their daughter’s untimely death and the quiet undertone of unbearable guilt. While Laura goes to drugs, John uses his work, the restoration of an old cathedral, to vent his hidden sorrow against the background of a never-ending series of horrific murders in the city’s meandering canals.
Then, a chance meeting with Heather, the blind clairvoyant, and Wendy, her eccentric sister, unleashes terrible visions of the dearly dead. At the same time, a menacing figure in a gleaming red anorak terrorizes the hamlet, which is now closed for the season. Is there a chance the odd sisters are telling the truth? Is John the skeptic’s life in danger?
6. Weirdos (1932)
Tod Browning is the director.
Browning took the risk of writing a revenge dream from the viewpoint of a group of circus “freaks,” and although his career was destroyed as a consequence, his masterpiece remains as beautiful and heartbreaking as ever. (During drunken midnight viewings, fans still scream “gooble, gobble.”)
7. Other People (2001)
Alejandro Amenábar is the director.
Grace Stewart, a widow, lives with her daughter Anne and son Nicholas in a lonely old home in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1945.

Grace instills in her children a strong sense of discipline while upholding Christian principles.
Grace hires the eccentric housekeeper Mrs. Bertha Mills, the quiet maid Lydia, and the gardener Mr. Edmund Tuttle, all of whom had sought for employment.

Grace looks for the intruders in vain until one day she has a revelation about the home and its intruders.
8. After 28 Days (2002)
Danny Boyle is the director.
A month after mankind is infected by a virus, Cillian Murphy wakes naked in a hospital bed and finds that civilization has collapsed.

9. Get out of here (2017)
Jordan Peele is the director.

As the weekend progresses, Chris starts to notice odd things about the place, and when he snaps a photo of one of the family members, the guy becomes enraged. The uneasiness is obvious, and it increases when Chris discovers the strange truth of what is going on here.
10. Extraterrestrial (1979)
Ridley Scott is the director.
Scott’s space horror picture created a subgenre of its own, but it’s Sigourney Weaver’s fearless performance as Ripley going up against a parasitic alien life form that makes it almost perfect.
Mommy, good night (2014)
Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala are the directors.
Twins Elias and Lukas are at a beautiful secluded lake home when they find their mother, who has her face wrapped in bandages following surgery and has been ignoring Lukas. She only talks to Elias and demands new house rules, such as requesting silence, keeping the curtains closed during the day, and only playing outdoors because she wants to unwind.
She is harsh with Elias, and the twins don’t believe she is their mother. They determine that she is not their mother after matching old photographs to her face and finding that their home is for sale on the Internet. They then torture her by binding her hands and legs to the bed and torturing her until she tells them where their mother is. What is this woman’s secret, exactly?
Strangers (12.) (2008)
Bryan Bertino is the director.
A fleeing couple visits a charming childhood home in the woods, only to be terrorized by a band of masked intruders. What makes the entire thing so terrible is the indiscriminate, amoral violence.

Fruit Chan is the director.
Aunt Mei is a Hong Kong cook known for her rejuvenation dumplings, which she makes using a millenarian technique and a mysterious ingredient she imports from China. Mrs. Li, a former T.V.T.V. star, pays Mei a visit in the hopes of recovering her youth and being more attractive to Mr. Li, her wolf husband. Mrs. Li learns that Mei worked as a gynecologist in China for 10 years and performed over 30,000 abortions during that time.
When Mrs. Li insists on hastening the operation, a chance comes when a fifteen-year-old teenager with a five-month incestuous pregnancy enters with her mother, requesting that Mei execute an abortion.
14. Eyes That Don’t Have a Face (1960)
Georges Franju is the director.
A renowned and crazy physician kidnaps beautiful women and tries to transplant their faces onto his daughter, who, yes, is without a face, in the eponymously named French art-horror classic. The power of masks was masterfully used in this film. It was also a source of inspiration for shows like Face/Off and Billy Idol.
Black Christmas (number 15) (1974)
Bob Clark is the director.
It’s Christmas break, and the sorority sisters are making preparations for their trip, but they’re worried about the strange anonymous phone calls. They report Clare missing to the police, who seem indifferent.

16. Holocaust of Cannibals (1980)
Ruggero Deodato is the director.
This infamous exploitation film, which has been outlawed in a number of countries, may not have popularized the found-footage genre, but it did kick things off. A documentary crew stranded in the Amazon after coming into a cannibalistic clan has discovered video. Despite the horrific image of an impaled woman causing you to think otherwise, accusations that actors were killed arose as a result of the (still) realistic-looking human cruelty.
Carnival of Souls, No. 17 (1962)
Herk Harvey is the director.
While traveling about in a car with two friends, Mary Henry is having a wonderful time. The ladies consent to a drag when challenged, but they are forced to leap from a bridge. Until Mary unexpectedly returns from the river later, everyone seems to have perished.

Shigeharu Aoyama, a widower in Tokyo, raises his kid Shigehiko Aoyama by himself when his wife passes away. Shigehiko, the teenager, wonders why his middle-aged father does not remarry seven years later, and Shigeharu calls his friend, film director Yasuhisa Yoshikawa, and expresses his desire.
Shigeharu, on the other hand, finds approaching beautiful women to date difficult, so Yasuhisa plans to organize a fake audition to locate the fictional film’s leading lady. They get a large number of candidate portfolios, and Shigeharu is enthralled with Asami Yamazaki. Shigeharu invites Asami out on a date against the wise Yasuhisa’s warnings and falls in love with her. But who is he, exactly?

David Cronenberg is the director.

Until you get to a particular point. When Brundle successfully transfers a live creature, he thinks he has solved the last problem.
Brundle learns he has changed when a fly enters one of the transmission booths while attempting to transfer himself. The quotable line comes from the film Science Gone Wrong. “Do not be frightened. “Be frightened.”
Maniac (n.d.) (n.d.) (n. (1980)
William Lustig is the director.
Frank Zito misses his mother, who died many years ago in a car accident. Frank still misses her, despite the fact that she was aggressive to him and sold her body for money.

He follows and meets Anna D’Antoni, a photographer who takes a picture of him in the park. Is she the woman he’s been looking for, or just another mother figure?
Carrie, number twenty-one (1976)
Brian De Palma is the director.
A quiet high school loner (Sissy Spaceck) does what every quiet high school loner dreams of doing at senior prom: unleashing full wrath on her abusive classmates. Spacek and her on-screen mother Piper Laurie both earned Oscar nods for their performances, which is uncommon for a horror picture.
Repulsion is number 22. (1965)
Roman Polanski is the director.
Carol Ledoux, a delicate, shy, and glacially beautiful Belgian manicurist who lives in London with her worldly older sister Helen, begins to lose her sanity. Carol’s increasing hatred for males, as well as the disgusting idea of their sexual desire for her, has gnawed at her at all hours of the day and night. Even though Colin’s honest would-be paramour could be a comfort to her, she progressively sees all men as a danger.
To make things worse, Helen decides to go to Italy for two weeks with her obnoxious boyfriend, Michael. Carol is trapped in their already cramped and filthy Kensington flat, which is rapidly degrading.
Carol’s mental and emotional collapse is hastened by a nightmarish world of weird hallucinations and obnoxious sexual urges. Is there anybody who can help Carol?
Sal 23. (1975)
Pier Paolo Pasolini is the director.
In this horrific Italian study of depravity and fascism, powerful men collect young boys and girls and subject them to horrible sexual practices and torture. There are many of disturbing images (you could choose any number of especially terrifying situations), but nothing is more upsetting than men laughing at their victims’ screams of agony.
Wolf Creek (#25) (2005)
Greg McLean is the director.
In 1999, Ben Mitchell and his two British girlfriends, Liz Hunter and Kristy Earl, bought an old car on the cheap to travel across Australia’s outback.

The Night of the Hunter (No. 26) (1955)
Charles Laughton is the director of this film.
While on a diabolical mission to eradicate sin, Reverend Harry Powell, a misogynistic serial murderer preacher with a sharp switchblade, discovers the truth of convicted bank robber Ben Harper. With $10,000 hidden near Harper’s decrepit farmhouse, Powell embarks on a devious quest to woo Ben’s poor widow, Willa, and, more crucially, convince the deceased’s young children, John and Pearl, to disclose the exact location of the reward.
When John stubbornly refuses to reveal his father’s secret, the insane gospel singer’s ravenous need for riches takes over, and no one is safe in his presence. Powell also believes that all women must suffer in the name of the Lord. In the hunter’s night, who will survive and who will perish?
The Blair Witch Project (#27) (1999)
Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez are the directors.
Only their video survives when three snarky college students go into the woods to investigate a local tale that turns out to be much too real. Yes, this film is to blame for every subsequent stupid, cheap, and hugely popular found-footage horror film. The absence of a “witch” irritates some people, but the scariest thing is always what we can’t see.
28. Psychoanalysis (1960)
Alfred Hitchcock is the director of this film.
Marion Crane, a Phoenix office worker, is tired with life’s treatment of her.

29. The First Sequence of the Human Centipede (2009)
Tom Six is the director.
Visitors from the United States seeking help are greeted by a German physician who exudes Nazi vibes and has plans for them that are much worse than death. If you haven’t fallen out from the surgical exposition, good luck figuring out the intestinal mechanics of the “human centipede.”
The Shining (#30) (1980)
Stanley Kubrick is the director of this film.
Jack Nicholson’s character, Jack Torrance, is a writer with a drinking problem. He and his family arrive to become the caretakers of a snowed-bound hotel full with eerie signs, like his own kid repeating “redrum” over and again, a couple of strange females loitering in the corridors, and a bloody elevator. Not to mention the famous phrase from the film: “Here’s Johnny!” Who says comic actors wielding axes aren’t frightening?
The Last House on the Left (No. 31) (1972)
Wes Craven is the director.
The film Last House on the Left was one of the most terrifying of its period. “Just keep reminding yourself, ‘It’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie, it The majority of those who watched this picture were in high school and were typically under the influence of some kind of drug, such as marijuana, hashish, or L.S.D.L.S.D., among other things. Disgusted, a large number of individuals departed or walked out.
Night of the Living Dead (number 32) (1968)
George A. Romero is the director.

The news stories, on the other hand, are depressing, with animals resurrecting all over the place.
When Barbra and Ben find five people sheltering in the basement, they are taken aback: Harry, Helen, and Karen Cooper, as well as a young couple named Tom and Judy. Dissensions develop quickly, with Harry Cooper wanting to be in charge. As their situation worsens, their chances of surviving the night decrease minute by minute.

The property belongs to Lord Summerisle, who is well-known for his apple and other fruit plantings and harvest. Sgt. Howie deduces that the people are pagans carrying out old rituals, and that Rowan is most likely alive and about to be sacrificed. The story’s conclusion comes as a complete shock.
Rosemary’s Baby (number 34) (1968)
Roman Polanski is the director.
In the most terrible metaphor for parenting gone wrong, Mia Farrow’s Rosemary becomes more worried about her difficult pregnancy and the mysterious neighbors in a building with a history of Satanism. You probably already know how the story ends, but that doesn’t matter: the real horror is Rosemary’s slow descent into madness.
The Silence of the Lambs (#35) (1991)
Jonathan Demme is the director.

The F.B.I.’s Special Agent Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) thinks that Lecter, a very strong and talented mind manipulator, has the solutions to their issues and can assist them in locating the murderer.

Michael’s obsession with Laurie Strode, a blissfully oblivious high school student, and her pals Annie and Lynda grows quickly. Dr. Samuel Loomis, Myers’ doctor, and sceptical Sheriff Leigh Brackett scour the countryside for the mentally ill prisoner. The shadows, on the other hand, are thick, and he is always one step ahead of them. Is Michael Myers back to complete the job he started?

40. Saw: Spiral (2021)
Darren Lynn Bousman is the director.
Spiral is set in a world plagued by Jigsaw’s legacy (aka John Kramer, the sadistic antagonist who drives the narrative with his obsession with testing people’s will to live). It premieres on July 4th in an unnamed city that seems to be eerily similar to New York. During a parade, off-duty detective Marv Bozwick (Daniel Petronijevic) chases a thief into a sewage pipe. There, a weird guy wearing a pig mask assaults Bozwick.
Bozwick awakens in a subway tunnel, his tongue hanging in midair in what can only be described as a strange, horrific torture device. A voice from a recorded message offers him the classic choice: rip out his tongue and live, or be hit by a train and die.
The Witch (number 41) (2016)
Robert Eggers is the director.
William and his Puritan family were exiled from their virtuous pilgrim community in mid-seventeenth-century New England and lived in a humble home on the outskirts of a thick and dismal forest.

Suspiria is the 43rd film in the Suspiria series (1977)
Dario Argento is the director.
While Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 adaptation of fellow Italian director Dario Argento’s horror classic is excellent, the original is unsurpassed. Argento’s tale of a dance school that has become a coven is a masterwork of horror film suspense, spooky music, and mystery.
Deliverance is number 44. (1972)
John Boorman is the director.
The scariest movies don’t always have to aim for the otherworldly or the grandiose to scare you. If you put a deep-woods kid on a bridge and give him a banjo, you’ll send chills up the spines of a lot of people. The film, starring Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox, is about four buddies who decide to travel down a remote Georgia river and term it a “adventure drama,” despite the phrase “squeal like a pig!”

46. The Disappearance (1988)
George Sluizer is the director.
If Hollywood films like Taken and The Call made you want to solve every kidnapping mystery, Dutch director George Sluizer’s The Vanishing (also known as Sporloos in its original Dutch) would make you wish Liam Neeson had just picked up the phone and gone to bed. This psychological thriller chronicles one man’s zealous search for his fiancée after she goes missing at a rest break, with a shocking climax that has been regarded as one of the scariest of all time.
The Thing (#47) (1982)
John Carpenter is the director.

They do come upon the charred remains of a strange creature that the Norwegians had set fire to.
It is sent to an American base, where it is determined to be an alien life form. After a period of time, it becomes apparent that the alien has the ability to take over and integrate into different life forms, including humans, and that it might spread like a virus. This raises tensions by implying that anybody in the base might be possessed by The Thing.
Lake Mungo is number 48. (2008)
Joel Anderson is the director.

As Regan’s condition worsens – she has to be tied to her bed, swears like a sailor, and speaks in tongues – Chris contacts Father Karras, a Roman Catholic priest and psychiatrist, to see whether an exorcism is possible.
