Alien (1979)

20th Century Fox

We know: Maybe you think of Alien as a sci-fi movie rather than a horror movie. Can we settle on sci-fi horror movie? Alien is one of the scariest movies on the list, and sneaks up on you like a  drooling Xenomorph. Ridley Scott’s second film masterfully starts things off with the extremely routine details of a space mission before walloping you with one of the most horrifying sequences in any movie — the Facehugger scene. Things only get worse from there.

And of course Sigourney Weaver’s Alien, who doesn’t seem like the main character at the start of the film, quickly became one of the greatest heroines in all of film.
