Broadband Choices, a cable provider in the UK, recently conducted a study involving 50 people who watched more than 120 hours of the best horror movies in a setting of 5.1 surround sound. Each participant was equipped with a heart rate monitor to measure the level of a scare through monitoring blood levels.
The movies, which consisted of research from critic’s lists and Reddit recommendations, included 50 of the best horror films ever made, including modern flicks like “Paranormal Activity,” “A Quiet Place,” and Stephen King’s “It,” to the classics such as “Halloween” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
The scariest movie is: “Sinister” was deemed the scariest movie, according to the study while the average resting BPM of participants was around 65 beats per minute, viewers’ heart rates spiked to around 86 BPM during this movie, which was the highest score.
Now have yourself a Halloween movie night, just don't invite your friends who have a weak heart ❤️ or stomach 🤮
