List Rules Horror films released in theaters in 2014 only. Don't downvote a movie you haven't seen just because it doesn't look good.

Audiences all across the country (and the globe) were frightened in theaters in 2014, thanks to the best horror movies out of Hollywood on the list below. These movies were creepy, eerie, and some were even downright scary - which is exactly what horror-loving audiences want. Horror film is a genre in and of itself. In 2014, there were plenty of top horror films in theaters to provide thrills, chill, and scares and if you missed seeing any of them, be sure to rent, buy or stream them for a fright-filled night. 

But which were the best? Did The Quiet Ones, Under the Skin, Tusk, or Life After Beth scare you enough to earn a thumbs up? Did paranormal horror movies like OuijaParanormal Activity: The Marked Ones, or Annabelle creep you out? How about the zombie movie Life After Beth or horror thriller movies like Willow Creek or As Above, So Below? Maybe there is a scary horror movie you enjoyed in 2014 not on the list? Be sure to add it so others can vote for it as well! Looking for more great horror movies? Then check out our Best Classic Horror Movies and The Scariest Movies Ever Made lists as well.
