Top grossing horror movies of all time


Happy Halloween from the crew of BabbleOn 5. In honor of the ‘day of the dead’, we wanted to list the top 5 horror movies of all time. The classic beast movie, Jaws has been at number one for over 30 years! Jaws reminded the world that it was not safe to go back in the water. With the exception of Mummy Returns, the top movies are all classics in their own right. Personally, I was relieved that ‘McMovies’ like the SAW franchise did not earn its way past a masterpiece like Exorcist. So if you are looking for a good scary movie to watch tonight with friends, you won’t go wrong with one of these. Have a scary and safe Halloween!
