It’s difficult to compile a definitive list of the top 10 all-time most watched horror movies, as it depends on how “watched” is defined (e.g. box office receipts, DVD sales, streaming views, etc.) and different sources may have different data. Here are a few highly successful and popular horror movies that have had widespread appeal:

  1. “The Exorcist” (1973)
  2. “Psycho” (1960)
  3. “Halloween” (1978)
  4. “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (1974)
  5. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (1984)
  6. “The Shining” (1980)
  7. “The Omen” (1976)
  8. “The Amityville Horror” (1979)
  9. “The Blair Witch Project” (1999)
  10. “The Conjuring” (2013)

It’s worth noting that this list is subjective and there are many other horror movies that could be included. The horror genre has a long and varied history, and there are many classic and contemporary horror movies that have gained widespread popularity and critical acclaim.
