Why do we fear possessions from demons so much? The exorcist was and always will be one of the most terrifying movies in existence. A little girl is possessed by a demon and in comes the exorcist trying to help her. Don't turn off the lights when watching this movie.

sleepy hallowNo.13 Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Johnny Depp and the headless horseman should be the alternative title. We really don't have to say anything more about this movie. Decapitations and love. Halloween at its finest!
