If you know anything about my writing on BuzzFeed dot com...you'll know that your girl here loves all things horror. But I also have a strange preoccupation with films that WERE NOT marketed as horror, but are even scarier than Freddie, Jason, and Candyman combined.
So this week, when Reddit user ella_loves_paris asked, "What non-horror movie is actually really scary?" I was ALL EARS.
Here are just a few of the nightmare-inducing films that are definitely not horror movies in the traditional sense:
2.The Truman Show (1998)
4.Mommie Dearest (1981)
5.The Cable Guy (1996)
6.Requiem for a Dream (2000)
8.AI: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
9.Mars Attacks! (1996)
13.Children of Men (2006)
14.The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)
18.A Little Princess (1995)
19.Black Swan (2010)
20.Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
22.And, of course, Cats (2019)
Now it's your turn! What's the scariest non-horror movie ever made? Can you outdo these? Share your nightmares in the comments below!
