10 Terrifying Jump Scares in the Horror Movies of the Decade

There are certain elements that are common across horror movies. A haunted house, a jilted lover, babies, totems, and voodoo are some of them. But there’s one element that you will find in all horror movies. Jump scares! A horror movie is defined by the right amount of jump scares. If there are too many of them, they lose the ‘scare’ factor by the end of the movie and if there aren’t enough, the movie does not seem scary at all. Here are 10 of our favorite jump scares that had us jumping off our seats. Warning: spoilers ahead!

It (2017)

This was definitely the scariest film of 2017, while its sequel did not have the same terrifying impact. The scariest part of IT was the bathroom scene with Beverly where she is kidnapped.

Annabelle: Creation (2017)

Before Pennywise, Annabelle haunted most of our dreams in 2017. While the movie was overall frightening, this blanket scene was the scariest of them all.

Lights Out (2016)

If you don’t remember this film, just turn off your lights and it will all come back to you. The movie began with one big jump scare and here is the opening sequence for you to relive the worst.

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

A sequel to the Conjuring movie, the second part had us prepared for what was to come. The movie did not scare as much as its prequel but this scene got our spines chilling.

It Follows (2015)

The old man from the movie followed us in our thoughts for days after we watched this movie. But it was the little boy from the shed that haunted us at night.

The Babadook (2014)

Sleep was never the same after this film. Every night, we would be reminded about the Babadook entering the woman’s room and thus, her mind.

Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013)

The first part of this movie had some of the scariest jump scares in horror movie history. The second could not catch up, except for this one scene that had us screaming in theatres.

The Conjuring (2013)

One of the most terrifying horror movies of the decade, this movie got its attention mostly due to this scene in the bedroom, where we had the first glimpse of the ghost.

The Woman in Black (2012)

This movie had many moments that kept us on the edge of our seats. But this scene in particular definitely made us throw some of our popcorn because we DID NOT see it coming.

Orphan (2009)

This is the only psychological thriller on the list. While there was no ghost, the scary girl was enough to give us nightmares. She creeped us out several times, this one being her most brutal act.

Before The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It releases next week, watch these classics for a dose of scares. Don’t forget to click on ‘Interested’ for the latest updates on the upcoming film.

Like Always, Pankaj Tripathi Is Comedy Gold In ‘Mimi’

It’s Kriti Sanon’s birthday today. To mark the occasion, the makers of ‘Mimi‘ decided to release the film four days before its scheduled release date. This film reunites the actress with her ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ co-star Pankaj Tripathi, who once again, plays to his strengths. Here, he is cast as Bhanu, a funny taxi driver from Delhi, who meets Mimi (Kriti Sanon) and convinces her to be a surrogate for his American passengers, John (Aidan Whytock) and Summer (Evelyn Edwards). With the aim of making money off the couple, Bhanu reaches out to Mimi, who is also in need of money to travel to Bombay and become an actress. She agrees to be the surrogate and gets pregnant, but the couple abandons both her and their unborn child a few months later. Mimi finds herself in a dilemma as on one end lie her hopes and dreams and on the other, the child inside her. To add to her worries, her parents now know that she’s pregnant and to divert their attention, she claims that the father of the child is the one who got her into the whole mess – Bhanu.
