The internet really has changed the way in which content creators find inspiration and share around their material. Arguably no community has made better use of this freedom than the world of horror, however.

Channel Zero's adaptations of the web's creepiest stories and subreddits such as the 'r/nosleep' page are the prime examples of how the internet cultivates the best terrors together, and are also usually the examples of how these stories' influences end up extending past the boundaries of an online forum.

To be fair, horror has arguably been influenced more by the internet than any other film genre, with marketing moves and story ideas alike for certain movies coming out of forums just like r/nosleep. The Blair Witch Project utilised the growing world of the internet to spread its 'this is real' marketing strategy, Unfriended brought with it a whole style of shooting everything from the perspective of someone's desktop, and there's plenty of room for a new forum horror story to get the same level of treatment.

Here's our take on ten great internet horror movie stories that deserve to put on the big screen.
