13 Movies to Watch on Friday the 13th

Babadook (2014)

This iconic character who can be seen paired with the pride flag is a character in a disturbing children’s book that a single mother decides to read to her violent son. This could make you scared of children’s stories and pop-up books.

It Follows (2015)

A sexual encounter leads to a college-age woman being followed by a supernatural presence that is trying to kill her. This can definitely mess with your head and make you question your friends (and sleeping with strangers).

Get Out (2017)

An awards-buzzy film about a black man who meets his white girlfriend’s family and starts to learn there’s something sinister going on. People running at you, chilling smiles, and animal heads are among the frightening things in this movie.

It (2017)

Historical and renowned Stephen King book was re-adapted and tuned out to be the biggest horror film opening weekend of all time. For those who don’t know, it’s about a clown named Pennywise that follows children around. This movie is not for you if you are even remotely scared of clowns.

Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)

The old game you have maybe played with before takes a new meaning when a family promises clients communication with the dead and invites a terrible evil into their home. If you weren’t afraid of Ouija boards before, you will be.

Insidious (2011)

The first in a series of movies, the parents suspect bad spirits in their new home where their son falls into a coma. You might be afraid to go to bed, or maybe to move ever again.

Happy Death Day (2017)

A horrifying spin on Groundhog’s Day, a college girl relives her birthday which happens to be the day she gets murdered. Being murdered is obviously a fear, but on your birthday?

The Witch (2016)

An English Puritan family in the 1630s turns on each other after the baby is abducted under the watch of the oldest, and animals start to turn malevolent. A little creepy, it takes on the stereotypical horror of something hiding in the woods.

The Conjuring (2013)

Another first in a movie series, this film is based on the true events of famous paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. Like any good haunting, you may be afraid of old farmhouses, ghosts, and dolls.

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

A little different on the horror spectrum, this improved sequel to the original film is set in a future where the government sanctions a holiday that allows people to get away with murder for one night. You may fear humanity and politics.

Unfriended (2015)

A video chat with a group of friends turns deadly when they are joined by the ghost of a girl they all bullied into suicide. If you’re a little weary about how you treat people, you may be hesitant to accept a Skype call.

mother! (2017)

A very chilling and quite disturbing film, it follows impending motherhood and marrying a famous man. It may cause frustration along with the fear of being famous.

Oculus (2014)

A haunted mirror that takes siblings back in time to when their parents were murdered, and what directly led to those deaths. You might want to cover up all those mirrors in your home once this movie is finished.
