2. The Incantation (2013)
James Wan directed the film, showing how a simple horror storyline can be full of twists and jumpscares. The film is about a family that has recently moved into a new house. Initially everything was great. However, they began to experience supernatural activities. To get rid of the demon, the family hires demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.
3. The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
This movie gives you chills. Not because it’s a demonic possession film, but because it’s loosely based on real events. The girl, Emily Rose, was possessed, not by one or two, but by a total of six demons. Yes, six. However, she couldn’t go through the process and die. Therefore, the priest was held responsible and tried. This is a great movie and highly recommended!

The real story is when they get a call from a farmer who reveals that his daughter has been behaving unusually, such as killing his livestock. After this, the events that unfold are truly horrific.
5. Hereditary (2018)
This horror movie has a sense of realism. It’s about Annie Graham, mother of a 13-year-old girl named Charlie, who is a bit strange, and a 16-year-old son Peter. After the death of Annie’s mother, the family is sad. This is when the house is taken over by a sinister presence. This has a strong influence on Charlie. Slowly in the film we learn about Annie’s ancestors which is extremely horrifying.
6. Insidious (2010)
This is another James Wan masterpiece, but a little different from his previous projects. The film is about a boy who becomes mysteriously catatonic.
