Much like comedy, horror is subjective. What one person might find scary, the person sitting next to them might find laughable. It’s not cut and dry. The genre as a whole is very much the same. Some non-horror movies could easily be described as horror. Sci-fi, drama, comedy, all of these genres contain secret horror movies.

There has been tons of debate over the years as what constitutes as horror. Think of all the crime films that had you checking your locks at night, or all the war movies that had you cringing at the various ways a person can get dismembered. Those visceral, paranoia inducing reactions that are the bread and butter of the genre can be found everywhere.

This list aims to shed a little light on some movies that either dip their toes into horror, or just straight up dive in headfirst. Ones that challenge the very notion of genre classification. It’s time to get spooky up in here.
