Films represent some of the best and worst of the horror film genre (and other genres) including entries from the silent era, classic Universal 30's monster films, to Italian gallio and Asian horror, to some of the scariest, most shocking, bloodiest and gore-ridden slasher films of the recent past.

[Author's Note: Admittedly, the word 'scariest' may also be interpreted in many other ways, including
horrifying, fearsome, frightening, petrifying, creepy, alarming, ghastly, startling, eerie, spine-tingling, distressing, stunning, terrifying, shocking, and many other such synonyms.]

Other Sources of Scariest Scenes in Film History: Many other websites, TV documentaries (i.e., The CW's 'The 13 Scariest Movies of All-Time' in 2019, or Eli Roth's continuing series History of Horror), magazines and horror books have attempted to compile listings of the scariest scenes in film history. Many of these sources are noted in Filmsite's own unique compilation.
