List RulesVote up your favorite horror films featuring home invaders.

The Purge, The Strangers, Hush, You're Next - the best home invasion movies tap directly into our most primal domestic fears, those nagging worries that wake us in the middle of the night, drenched in a cold sweat. 

What was that noise? Did I leave the front door unlocked? Did I set the security alarm? Who is the sketchy lady on my doorstep asking to use the phone at 1 am? Who is that strange man in the rabbit mask outside my window? And, seriously, what is the deal with that crossbow?

A good, scary home invasion flick asks all of these questions. The best of them withhold answers for as long as possible, drawing out the suspense. Most of them have a high body count, though they're not always the bodies you'd expect.

The movies on this list take our home invasion nightmares to a whole new level. Unlock the deadbolt at your own risk...
