Horror fans unite! Yes, I am one of them. In fact, the more gore, the better which is why I’m super excited to write this blog post! I keep trying to rush September so we can get to October and begin celebrating Halloween but screw it, it’s never too early for horror movies. I’m listing the 20 highest-grossing scary movies of all time, inside.

Originally, I was going to write about the Stephen King Adaptation, It, and how it broke the earning record of The Exorcist, making it the highest grossing horror film of all time. But why not make this article even more interesting and list every since horror movie that’s made a substantial amount of money. Now, I’m sure you’ve seen most-if not all of them; but why not pull a re-watch in the sake of Halloween.

Keep in mind, you may be shocked at which films did and did not make the list.

18. “The Village” (2004) — $256.6 million

17. “Annabelle” (2014) — $256.8 million

16. “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991) — $272.7 million

1. “The Sixth Sense” (1999) — $672.8 million

My thoughts on this list? Well, The Village is currently in my Netflix que so I really need to get on that. I didn’t know Van Helsing was considered horror. The Conjuring 2 was a waste of time. I have yet to watch Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal; getting on that as well. And big ups to M. Night Shyamalan for having the fourth and first highest grossing horror film of all time. What are you top picks?
