What's A Horror Movie So Scary, It Actually Caused You To Lose Sleep At Night?

One, two...sleep's not coming for you.

Look, let's cut to the chase: some horror movies really stick with you long after they're over, whether you want them to or not.

Warner Bros. Pictures

So, what's a horror movie so legitimately frightening, so downright freaky, you quite literally lost sleep over it?

Universal Pictures

Perhaps you spent hours staring at your ceiling avoiding sleep after you saw the terrifying torture sequence in Audition.

Omega Project

Or maybe it was something more recent, like Hereditary, that was so burned into your brain that you couldn't unsee it, even when you closed your eyes.


Heck, it could even be the most literal answer ever, and you avoided sleep so you wouldn't have to face Freddy Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street in your dreams.

New Line Cinema
