James Wan’s Best Horror Movies Ranked

James Wan is a common name in the genre of horror. After all, he has produced some of the most popular horror series of the decade, including ‘Saw’, ‘The Conjuring’, ‘Insidious’ and ‘Annabelle’. Besides, he also has independent horror films to his name, such as ‘Lights Out’. He is now the purveyor of terror in Hollywood, and his movies, whether hits or misses, can leave you with nightmares for weeks.

Before the release of ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It – Wan’s latest production that releases this week – here’s ranking the best of his filmography.

9. ‘The Nun’

The Nun is not a stand-alone movie as it is set in the pre-Conjuring era with its central character being the most terrifying villain we have seen in horror movies till date. We had many high expectations from Valak but the movie was a let-down in terms of plot and frights.

8. ‘Demonic’

In 2015, James Wan produced two films and directed one. This was one of his productions, a supernatural horror directed by Will Canon about a police officer and a psychologist who are investigating the deaths of five people killed while trying to summon ghosts.IFrame

7. ‘Dead Silence’ 

Dolls and puppets seem to be Wan’s go-to horror props. In this movie, he experimented with a vaudeville doll (dummy). This was Wan’s first stand-alone horror movie after the ‘Saw’ trilogy and released in the same year as ‘Saw IV’ (2007).

6. ‘The Curse of La Llorona’

In his last stand-alone production, James Wan and director Michael Chaves explore the legend of La Llorona, who stalks and preys on young children in the night. The film is a part of the larger Conjuring universe but has no connection to any of Wan’s previous movies.

5. The ‘Annabelle’ series

As a spin-off of ‘The Conjuring series’, ‘Annabelle’ made dolls scary. Three years later, the origin of the creepy doll had resurfaced in ‘Annabelle: Creation’, which critics found to be a far better and improved version of the previous movie. The third film, ‘Annabelle Comes Home‘, was the directorial debut of ‘The Conjuring’ writer Gary Dauberman, who experimented with some classic horror elements.

IFrame4. The ‘Saw’ series 

James Wan made his mark in the genre of horror in 2004 with the mystery thriller, ‘Saw‘. Possibly one of the best serial killer series we have ever seen, ‘Saw’ is a set of eight movies but none compare to the very first movie, which was made in 2004, after the short film, ‘Saw 0.5‘ (2003).

3. ‘Lights Out’ 

Directed by David F. Sandberg who also directed ‘Annabelle: Creation’, this is another stand-alone production by James Wan. Teresa Palmer stars in the lead role and the movie is full of jump scares, a classic element of Wan’s style of horror.

2. The ‘Insidious’ series

Another horror series we have been super kicked about since 2010 is ‘Insidious’. With four movies that maintain the consistency of terror, this series is similar to ‘The Conjuring’ in a haunting kind of way.

1. The ‘Conjuring’ series

This series made horror movies more mainstream and even those with a weak stomach dared to watch these films. ‘The Conjuring‘ and ‘The Conjuring 2‘ have made it to the top of our list for their intense nail-biting horror and we can’t wait to see what’s coming next. So if you are as excited as we are, watch ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ film this weekend in theatres.
