10 Horror Movies For People Who Really Hate Horror Movies

- Page 1

It can be pretty hard to sell some people on horror movies. The jumpscares are startling, the characters are often really stupid and unlikable, and the plots often exist just to set up more scares. In short, they don't seem to care about being good movies.

Fortunately, there are actually some great horror movies for people who aren't normally into them; ones that aren't too spooky and have cool stories. The next time you meet someone who says they hate horror, just park them in front of one of these 10.

Alien (1979)

The movie that put sci-fi horror on the map, Alien is wrapped up in enough cool sci-fi imagery and futuristic stuff that it never gets TOO scary. Just maybe get ready to jump when the cat shows up.

Near Dark (1987)

What's better than vampires? How about Wild West vampires that roll into a town and cause chaos? Fun fact: this is an early movie Kathryn Bigelow, director of Point Break and The Hurt Locker.

Dracula (1931)

One of the earliest sound horror movies is also one of the best. It keeps a creepy atmosphere thanks to its lack of music and Bela Lugosi's iconic performance as the Count, but it's ultimately more creepy than scary, and is plenty tame by today's standards.

Creepshow (1982)

An anthology movie based on the horror comics of the post-war era, each clip manages to be creepy while also a little silly. Super fun.

These next few are especially good...
