If you're in the mood to scare yourself silly, TikTok user @madyplaysgames has got you covered. After bravely watching hours of scary movies, she's now sharing her top picks for genuinely scary flicks.
Mady's list kicks off with the 1998 Japanese movie Ringu, which inspired The Ring. She suggests giving it a watch if you enjoyed the latter.
Another recommendation from Mady is the 2007 Spanish supernatural horror movie, The Orphanage, which she claims scared her to the core.
Mady also suggests checking out the 2015 found-footage film Hell House LLC, which she thinks is underrated.
Finally, REC - a Spanish film that inspired Quarantine - makes it onto Mady's list as a far superior alternative.
Next on her list, she selects the popular found-footage film, the Blair Witch Project.
Mady explains: "I don't care what anyone says, this is always going to be the scariest movie I've ever seen.
"I grew up when people were made to feel like this was a real documentary and it sticks with you."
In another video, Mady recommends the 2008 movie The Strangers, claiming that it left her deeply frightened.
She proceeds to suggest Midnight Meat Train, featuring former footballer Vinnie Jones, as a true hidden gem.
Mady's next pick is the super creepy zombie movie 28 Days Later, followed by the 2013 film A Tale of Two Sisters, which she claims will evoke a heavy, unsettling sensation in your chest.
To complete her list, Mady includes the iconic 1978 horror movie The Exorcist, which is a classic for good reason.
