Turns out watching scary movies is actually good for you. Maybe not your heart, but your brain at least. A behavioral neuroscientist at UCLA says scary movies, even the horribly unrealistic ones, teach us to have real responses to actual threats, especially when we’re younger. What your body goes through watching The Walking Dead is essentially the same when you are actually being attacked, albeit not by a zombie.
So with that being said, here’s the 25 Scariest Movies of All Time. Go freak yourself out and see if you’ll survive the impending zombie apocalypse.
25) Friday the 13th (1980)
