7. Scream (1996)
a spree of high school murders occur suddenly, Sidney Prescott (Neve
Campbell) suspects boyfriend Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich) to be the
killer, but her suspicions divert onto her father when Billy is taken
into police custody following her complaint, and the murders continue.
The killer disguises himself with the mask of a 'ghost face' and
torments his victims by calling them on the phone and quizzing them of
past horror movies, and bargains the life of loved ones if answered
incorrectly. This movie was a pleasant blend of satire and comedy
alongside being partially based on the real-life Gainesville murders
committed by Daniel Rolling. Scream began a whole new era of
post-modern teen slasher movies, and is currently the highest-grossing
slasher movie in the United States. It seems this movie let audiences
enjoy the more classic conventions of horror on a whole new level, while
uncovering the mystery of the actual killer and a clever twist of the
victims having knowledge of the do's and don't's that belong in this
genre. Others could literally 'scream' at the gore and brutality that
Wes Craven was brave enough to display - and also buy! Movies containing
high content of gore were initially hard to sell at the time, but this
genre took a turn for the best when known actors such as Drew Barrymore
opted to star in the movie by request, and let audiences enjoy a scary
movie with recognizable faces, which was usually uncommon in the horror
genre back then.
favourite cast for this movie?" The choice of stars became slightly
difficult with this one, as stars with younger and more fresher looks
are in demand. However, we'd rather not stick to the usual suspects with
the typical chocolate boy looks and bring to the table a cast more
significantly interesting. For Sidney Prescott, we have Parineeti Chopra
who could create the student with a boyfriend she'd hate to suspect in
the form of TV's own Sushant Singh Rajput
as Billy Loomis. We all know
this young star in his early rising will bring tremors across our
screens to see him play the young kid looking for revenge from everyone
that indirectly ruined his life - now wouldn't that be a new dimensional
side for our small screen hero! And finally, for Billy's accomplice Stu
Macher (Matthew Lillard), we figured Prateik Babbar
would be the
perfect star to play the guy with a useless motive of 'peer pressure'.
How's that for a new star-cast with recognizable faces?!

Tagline: Don't brag about your favourite scary movies!6. American Psycho (2000)
story moves along the narration of Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a
handsome, intelligent, 27-year old investment banker on Wall Street who
pursues a luxury lifestyle while earning a fortune to compliment the one
he inherited. However, by nightfall this hunk doesn't intrigue himself
with the finer fantasies other men often do! His curiosity for
experimental violence and fear transcend him into insanity, and a hatred
for the world encourages his madness to commit murders in secret.
However, the fine line separating his two lifestyles begins to fade
quickly when he begins to lose control over his sadistic urge, and
openly confesses to murders in general talks which go unnoticed due to
his casual behaviour. American Psycho probably contains some of
the most gruesome content imaginable and it's amazing how we see this
psycho as Bale, who was in one word 'fantastic'; but his drawer full of
medical implements was certainly not - if you've seen this film, you'll
know just what we mean.
for our B-town psycho and this one is fairly obvious! Someone as hot
and talented as Bale has to be Hrithik Roshan
. We've seen him switch
emotions and roles effortless in movies Fiza
and Mission Kashmir
where Roshan became enraged within moments and was filled with hatred
toward the man who raised him despite being the killer of his family.
The act Roshan adopted in those scenes gathered the potential to split
two individual personalities within the same person, and that involves a
lot of talent - which Roshan clearly has.
Quote it: "I think my mask of sanity is about to slip."
Tagline: Don't fall for the man with a big inheritance and good looks, his idea of a 'night in' might be slightly different to yours.
5. Se7en (1995)
one of the most strategic serial-killing movies out there; a visceral
psycho John Doe (Kevin Spacey) with a twisted agenda, executing the
perfect diabolical plan is by far one of the most scariest thoughts
ever. This man truly believes he is fighting for something by justifying
his killings as absolution by finding seven victims who are the finest
examples to mankind for representing the ignorance of the Seven Deadly
Sins: gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, pride, lust and envy. On his trail
are two homicide detectives William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) and David
Mills (Brad Pitt), who without the faintest clue are too compelled into
representing one of the sins by the end. Although the killings in this
movie are - in simple words - nasty, one cannot deny the psychological
thrill of discovering what Doe had lined up for every sin - that too
without leaving any fingerprints at the murder scenes which he achieved
by peeling off the skin on his fingertips. And if you've seen this
movie, you'll also know that nobody was expecting Doe to deliberately
become a victim of his own plan, but we also have to admit that his
clever way of conveying it so confidently was sheer brilliance.
now we have an interesting role on our hands here. Who could possibly
play John Doe as sincerely as Spacey?! It would have to most definitely
be perfectionist Aamir Khan
, his psychotic talent was well received in
the remake of Momento
as Ghajini, and there's no doubt that
someone who could be as shrewd and passionate on screen at the same time
is none other than Khan. For the homicide detectives we'd have Somerset
as Ajay Devgn
for his senior abilities to be a part of a Bollywood
movie without the common involvement of a love interest while aiding a
short-tempered Mills in the form of Vivek Oberoi
, who we've seen
numerous times already as the bad guy playing the good guy with anger

4. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Nightmare on Elm Street is exactly what this film offers, when the
children of Elm Street become the tired victims of a clawed killer named
Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), who was arrested for the murder of
children years ago, but upon his undue release the enraged parents burnt
him alive. He now hangs loose in the dreams of his chosen victims after
accepting a deal with three demons, who offer him eternal life and
power in exchange to merge within him - hence giving birth to the Freddy
we all love. Why do we love to love Freddy? Well it's probably because
of his terrifying humor that sets him apart from other killers in his
league of master slashers, alongside his sadistic joy in the form of
what we do, the inevitable is certain and sleep must come to us all, and
the person that could be responsible for our sleepless nights in B-town
would be Nana Patekar
, who could menace precisely as our most
characteristic Freddy Krueger. A little obvious was it? We thought so
too, but with his height, build, and fierce uncertainty that shines
right across his face with a touch of that delicate humorous side to his
character, we think we have a earnest Freddy ready for our Bollywood
