For some, the best scary movie is one that is full of creatures creating havoc and but spares the blood considerably.
The four Jurassic Park movies are films that will make you jump, but are not nightmare-inducing. Some consider this year’s Jurassic World the best in the series and if you haven’t seen any of them, you could easily skip the second and third films. Essentially, the films tells what happens when an arrogant dinosaur loving man creates a theme park with real dinosaurs. What could go wrong?
2014’s Godzilla isn’t a great film, but it is entertaining enough for home viewing. However, it is a must see for anyone who is a fan of the film’s long franchise history. In some ways it is similar to Jurassic Park, but it stays true to its Japanese history of the films.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, the 2005 version of King Kong has been rated highly by those critics and fans alike, but the more popular big ape movie is still the 1933 version.
Finally, the special effects seen in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 film, The Birds, are a lot less polished than today’s current hits with super CGI. But the film is still unnerving and can still surprise viewers with a few shocking moments of birds gone bad.
