If you’re looking for a movie that will scare you, this list has a few choices for you. Here are some examples: They Live in the Grey, The Exorcist, The Rite, and Day of the Lord. And don’t worry if you don’t have time to watch these movies in their entirety.
They Live in the Grey
While the era of the Satanic Temple has long passed, the spirit of the occult is still alive and well. While the cult largely takes the form of conservative Christians making unsubstantiated claims on online forums, there are many movies that typify the Satanic mindset. These films are aimed at a broad audience and are definitely not appropriate for young children.
“The Eye” (2002) and “The Sixth Sense” both deliver effective scares, but “They Live in the Grey” also manages to deliver a gripping story. The supernatural elements in the film are effective, and Michelle Krusiec’s performance is excellent.
“The Conjuring” is another classic gothic movie. In this film, a couple on vacation is confronted with a video showing a murder. The video is a chilling experience. The film stars Luke Hemsworth and Maggie Q. The film was a breakout hit for Shudder in 2022.
“The Watcher” has an overly predictable plot, but director Chloe Okuno’s control of the material makes it a solid watch. “Terrifier 2” is an excellent sequel to the first film, and it’s not for the faint-hearted.
While the supernatural aspect of The Exorcist is quite strong, it isn’t the only thing worth praising. The film also has a strong humanistic element, with characters pursuing scientific explanations before embracing the supernatural. This makes the film all the more terrifying, especially when Pazuzu (a demon) first appears and begins to make everyone tremble. The movie also features some excellent lines and is widely considered to be one of the best exorcism films of all time.
The Exorcist was originally made in the 1980s, a decade that is often associated with the Satanic Panic. During that decade, a widespread interest in the occult was on the rise, a trend that continued with the rise of high-profile serial killers. The rise of Satanism in popular culture and a Time cover story chronicling contemporary Satanism was just a few of the factors that contributed to this period’s emergence as a hotbed of horror. In addition to the Exorcist, other occult films of the decade explored similar themes, including the rise of devil worship in plain clothes and the simplicity of evil entering the modern world.
Another film that makes the list is “The Rite.” Based on Father Gary Thomas’s account of working with veteran clergy in Rome, this supernatural horror movie is set in Mexico. Both movies feature a retired priest haunted by his past and a demon that beckons him to sin.
The Exorcist is considered to be the scariest movie of all time, and it was chosen by the National Film Registry for preservation in 2010. Even though it’s almost 50 years old, the film is still stunningly beautiful and frightening. The movie blends beautiful imagery with unexplainable evil to create a film that is as eerie as faith.
This film is based on Grady Hendrix’s acclaimed novel. It stars Elsie Fisher and Christopher Lowell in the ’80s setting. The film is directed by Damon Thomas and produced by Christopher Landon. The plot revolves around the murder of one teenage boy.
Prey For the Devil is an American supernatural horror movie. It is directed by Daniel Stamm and written by Robert Zappia. The cast includes Jacqueline Byers, Colin Salmon, Christian Navarro, Lisa Palfrey, and Virginia Madsen. The film was dedicated to Ben Cross and was released in 2022. However, it was not received well by critics. Despite its depressing story, the film has become a cult classic.
The story revolves around a nun who is preparing to perform an exorcism. However, a demonic spirit has possessed her and is determined to take control of her body. In the midst of this supernatural event, the nun must learn to cope with the demonic force that is possessing her. This force has ties to her past.
The Day of the Lord
The Day of the Lord is one of the most anticipated Satanic horror movies of the year. The plot revolves around a young couple named Michael and Gabby. They’re not engaged, but in love, and they decide to spend a romantic weekend at a cabin owned by his parents. However, Michael is intense and Gabby is hesitant to trust him. So they smoke pot to relax, and soon, Michael reveals that he’s God.
This American supernatural horror film is directed by Daniel Stamm and written by Robert Zappia.

This film focuses on exorcism schools, and the priests and nuns who train them.
Filmmakers have increasingly turned to religious themes to create a spooky, disturbing world. From Korean mysticism to doomsday cults, these movies have branched out into a variety of genres. Many filmmakers have used their personal experiences with various faiths to create religious horror.
Drag Me to Hell
After working for nearly a decade on Spider-Man movies, Sam Raimi has returned to the horror genre with Drag Me to Hell. This PG-13 rated film stars Alison Lohman and has a creepy and fun tone. Christine Brown (Lohman) becomes the target of a deadly curse after upsetting an old gypsy woman. To break the curse, Christine needs to seek the aid of a seer who can help her get out of the curse.
Drag Me to Hell is a movie that is technically sound and filled with interesting shots. It’s also a work of a great filmmaker. Sam Raimi, the director and writer of Army of Darkness, returns to the horror genre with this film. Despite being PG-13, the movie is extremely intense and scary.
The plot centers on Christine Brown, a loan officer who denies an elderly lady a mortgage extension. After Christine’s denial, a gypsy mystic curses her to burn in hell. With three days to free herself from the curse, Christine seeks out her boyfriend Justin Long for help.
Drag Me to Hell has some parallels with Lamia. Christine tries to pass on the curse to Mrs. Ganush in the afterlife but finds that she has been unfair to her. As a result, she is forced to work every angle in order to escape the afterlife.
