Lacey here! My close friends know that I absolutely LOVE horror movies. I could probably have an incredibly in-depth conversation about my favorite ones, the best production houses that produce them, and the passion and art of telling a horror movie. I'm a horror movie buff... you get the point.

Auditioning for a role in a horror movie can be incredibly tough. So - I wanted to put together a list of movies in which I felt the acting was above and beyond. Hopefully these movies will help you draw inspiration for your next big audition.

The Blair Witch Project (Netflix)

As Above So Below (Netflix)

Sinister 2 (Hulu)

A Quiet Place (Amazon Prime)

Lights Out (Hulu)

The Haunting in Connecticut (Netflix)

The Devil Inside (HBO)

Paranormal Activity (Amazon Prime)

The Babadook (Netflix)

And there you have it! While there are tons of incredible horror movies out in the universe, these are just a handful of my favorites in which I felt the acting was spot on. I'd love to hear your thoughts! DM me on Casting Depot or Tweet us at @castingdepot 🔥
