I’d take the stairs if I were you…



4. Hellraiser (dir: Clive Barker, 1987)

A truly scary (and gory) film. The trailer does it justice…



3. An American Werewolf in London (dir: John Landis, 1981)

Take an alternate route tonight if you’re planning on walking through the woods…



2. Alien (dir: Ridley Scott, 1979)

Watching this in the office we could hear everyone scream…



1. The Exorcist (dir: William Friedkin, 1973)

The flash of the devil in this film scared us witless. He makes several appearances here in this original, rare - and banned by the execs - trailer. You have been warned…
