Instead of being afraid of real life fears like thieves in the night or spiders crawling on you in your seat, you can indulge yourself with fantastical horror stories that feature supernatural demons and unrealistically invisible serial killers. These films include scary monsters, relatable protagonists, and intense moments that will haunt your dreams.
