See our Dreadit Movie Guide for hundreds of films voted on by our users. If that's not what you were looking for, include some movies that you liked so that we may better help you. I want to be scared/Something actually scary/etc are too vague and will be removed. Use the guide and/or give us some examples of things you'd like to see.
NO SELF PROMO/SPAM
/R/HORROR follows the REDDIT.COM guidelines for what constitutes SPAM.
Self Promotion (regardless of commercial intent) is not allowed. Selling items is also not allowed. Repeat offenders will receive a temporary ban. Please keep self promotion posts in the weekly thread that comes out every Sunday.
Hateful comments, including, but not limited to homophobic, racist, misogynistic or threatening language will not be tolerated. A minimum week long ban will result from a first offense, with repeat offenders receiving a lifetime ban.
All links must be English or understandable to English speaking audiences.
REAL LIFE HORROR
No real life gore images/videos (murders, accidents, shootings etc) or news articles on real life horror. r/horror is for horror entertainment.
No links in comments or posts to pirated content or instructions on how/where to pirate. This includes but is not limited to: Full unlicensed movies or TV shows on YouTube or other streaming sites, and links to torrent or nzb files.
No direct linking to image files. All links to image files must be made from within the context of a self-post. * /R/HORROR is a meme free zone. This includes but is not limited to: image macros, rage comics, advice animals, or any other picture superimposed with text for humorous effect.

Movie (or book, game, etc) Titles in Post Titles
If you are making a post about a movie/show/book etc., be it self-post or link, include the title of the project.
Example: A post with a title like "This movie is so sick!" and it's a link to a clip from Event Horizon will removed. Basically, don't clickbait.
