12 Horror Movies That You Cannot Watch Alone!

Horror movies are fun but not for the faint hearted but some literally binge watch them. I have many friends who always tell me that they have watched a horror movie which they thought would be really scary but it turns out, it was not enough frightening. In fact, there are times when we plan a night out only to watch such death scary movies as after that, scaring the shit out of that one person who gets nervous easily, is a lot of fun than ever.

I understand that watching intellectual, romantic, sci-fi and other genres are highly satisfying but the thrill that we get from watching horror movies is nothing compared to them all. Getting spooked, screaming your guts out and most of all covering your eyes, just because you know that a dreadfully terrifying scene is about to appear on screen is just too much adrenaline and we just love it, don’t we?
If you are someone who just loves to have a fright-night or if you think that no scary movie in this world could scare you, then we bet these 12 movies will make you sweat like a pig as it will be a horror night even in your dreams after watching them.
