The Conjuring franchise is one of the most successful horror movie franchises of the decade, and it surely deserves a place on this list. The Conjuring films are all based on the real cases in the career of paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. If that wasn't scary enough, the movie is packed with scary dolls (lookin' at you, Annabelle), great visuals, spooky make-up, haunting effects, and a talented cast. The director uses lengthy shots, forced perspective, and good, old-fashioned jump scares to freak the audience out. The first film of the Conjuring franchise has become an instant classic and has left audiences both terrified, impressed, and begging for more.
