Highest-Grossing Horror Movies Of All Time

Forbes.com compiled its list of the highest-grossing horror movies of all time.  To be honest and fair… they put together two lists. They have one that is adjusted for inflation and one that is “regular”.

I’m not sure I consider “Ghostbusters” or “Gremlins” a “horror” movie but OK.  And “Jaws” and “The Sixth Sense”, while suspenseful, doesn’t really count as horror to me either.  Nonetheless, here are the top 10 on each list along with how much they they took in at the box office.

Adjusted for Inflation:

1.  “Jaws” (1975),  $1.154 billion

2.  “The Exorcist” (1973),  $996.5 million

3.  “Ghostbusters” (1984),  $641.3 million

4.  “The Sixth Sense” (1999),  $518.8 million

5.  “Gremlins” (1984),  $409.8 million

6.  “It” (2017),  $328.9 million

7.  “Jaws 2” (1978),  $312.8 million

8.  “The Amityville Horror” (1979),  $310.3 million

9.  “Alien” (1979),  $286.4 million

10.  “Scary Movie” (2000),  $262.5 million
