As we’ve illustrated, a movie doesn’t need monsters, ghosts, or goblins to terrorize the audience – real life provides enough danger for any of us. Prestige pictures, comedies, and worldwide blockbusters can give any horror film a run for its money in the scare department – if the filmmakers place the characters in the right situations.
Our list is not meant to be all-inclusive, so be sure to include your picks in the comments section below and let us know if you think a reality-based drama is just as scary (or scarier) than Friday the 13th.
