From Aliens, to Demons, and from Witches, to Zombies, and beyond. Documentary style horror movies never fail to send a chill down the spine, and raise hairs on the necks, of all who watch them. So turn the volume up high, and turn the lights down low. And check out the best documentary style horror movies ever made.

  1. Awesome list...I love these types of movies

  2. Mine would be Quarentine. I am a sucker for the zombie genre.

  4. What about the very controversial and disturbing Cannibal Holocaust!

  5. Got one for the list a movie called paranormal entity and no it is not paranormal activity nor is it part of that series


  7. Apollo 18 is another, set in space. It's not as bad as some of the reviews suggest (IMO).

  8. As above so below...should be added
