Aren't doctors supposed to help you get better? Here's our list of the best horror movies about insane doctors and crazy surgeons, ranked by horror fans like you. Scary movies with evil doctors are kind of a thing of the past, but there are definitely some modern horror films with surgeons or doctors who are hell bent on wreaking havoc on their victims. Most recently, Jordan Peele's debut horror film Get Out featured a deranged surgeon who uses his skills for both profit and evil. Is it the scariest doctor movie ever made? We'll let you answer that question with your votes on this list.

Other classic scary doctor or surgeon movies include The Fly, Re-Animator, and The Island of Dr. Moreau. Tom Six's The Human Centipede is also a really scary doctor horror film, despite how panned it was by certain critics for its bizarre concept and disgusting subject matter.
