10 Bloody Good Horror Scenes | Reel Movie Nation

What’s on my mind this Halloween night? Blood, guts, and those wonderful scares that have you peeing your pants. As a horror movie lover, Halloween is one of my favorite nights of the year. Not only do I get to scare people without feeling guilty, I also get to watch scary movies 24/7. It’s paradise for a freak like me. While everyone enjoys watching the non-spooky classics like Hocus Pocus on ABC Family, what I really need is some gore. Which is why I have compiled this list of the 10 bloodiest and best horror movie scenes to whet your appetite for flesh. Note: this list does not include every bloody scene because there are just too many to name. But it has a bunch of the really good ones.

1. The Shining (1980)

Director: Stanley Kubrick

Stars: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd

No one can deny it, Stephen King is the master of all things horror. There is a reason movies adapted from his books appear twice on this list. While I am currently obsessed with everything King has ever written, it is true that nearly every novel features blood, gore, and scares in every sentence. I have to mention that the book for The Shining is even scarier than the movie, but the film is certainly a classic. One of the scarier scenes is when Wendy (Shelley Duvall) is searching for whoever attacked her young son Danny (Danny Lloyd). She stumbles on a couple of gallons of blood pouring out of the elevator doors. It’s one of the images that sticks with you when you see the movie, and more than earns a place on this list.
