The Sixth Sense (1999): This is the best movie ever made by M. Night Shyamalan. This movie has a unique plot line, it starts Bruce Willis as a child psychologist and Haley Joel Osment a boy (who can see dead people), is getting treatment from the child psychologist.
The Man Who Laughs (1928): This film is the among the most top 10 scary movies, and has a unique plot line.

Gwynplaine is adopted by a traveling showman, and becomes popular. He falls in love with a blind girl and as the king dies, his jester tries to destroy Gwynplaine.
Child's Play (1988): The Chucky movies are a little cheesy films, but come on you have to give it to the Chucky series, as they were absolutely fresh at the time, the first part was released. This is the first movie of the series, and has a very scary concept of a serial killer being trapped inside the body of a puppet.
Rosemary's Baby (1968): This is another classic Oscar winning horror film, that is always present in top 10 horror movies list.

The couple becomes very concerned about their unborn child safety, as the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006): This is one of the top 10 scary movies of 21st century, but many people don't know about it. The guy in the movie is absolutely crazy, which means he has acted really well. The movie is about Jean-Baptiste Grenouille who is born with highly developed olfactory sense, and as he grows up he wants to make the ultimate scent. He makes this ultimate scent by killing women, and extracting their natural body perfume.
The Omen (1976): The old Omen movie is one of the best horror movies ever made, however the new one is a real disappointment. The story is about a child who is actually the child of Satan, and makes his nanny hang herself and kills a priest in a freak accident. This child is impossible to kill.
The Ring (2002): The Ring is one of the top 10 scary movies of the past 10 years. This is a very scary movie, and the best part about the movie is that it lacks the typical elements of a horror film. It is about a mysterious videotape, after watching it a person dies within seven days.
Jeepers Creepers (2001): This movie is about a brother and sister who are driving home back for their college break, when they stumble upon an old church basement. The siblings are continuously pursued by The Creeper, who is hell bent on eating them.
