7 ½ Horror Movies With the Word 'The' in the Title That You've Probably Already Seen

Updated on February 18, 2020

My Cat Persephone Wrote this Review on her Smartphone. It was better than Mine. .

Whenever you click onto one of these lists, I assume, dear Viewer (that’s you and the person looking over your shoulder to read this. You think you’re alone in your room, on your laptop, but you’d be wrong) that you’re looking for movies that you’ve never seen before, something you can rent from your local Blockbuster and watch late into the night before you have to get up and return those small and totally wieldy tapes into the handy-dandy slot before the late fees kick in. But make sure you rewind those tapes, because a friend of mine, and by friend, I mean my nephew, let’s call him Mortimer, was killed because he forgot to rewind.

Oh, where was I?

Movies you’ve never seen before.

This, ________ (insert your name here) is not that type of list.

If you haven’t seen all the films on this list at least twice already, then you will be put on a list, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the IRS will come a-knockin’ at your door to, well, let’s just say it will be painful to both you, your family, and a random smattering of your neighbors.

Without further ado, onto the list...

I was wrong. There’s some more ado. I lost my good sunglasses when I was here last Thursday. If you see them, just let me know. They belonged to my nephew Mortimer.

1) Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

 
 
Year Released
2006
Director
Scott Glosserman
Isn't this to the side of the mask?
Isn't this to the side of the mask?

This brilliant horror-comedy begs for a sequel. It’s also one of the few movies on this list whose ‘The’ is separated by a colon. My insides are separated by a colon, but Behind the Mask is a lot funnier.

2) The Lost Boys

 
 
Year Released
1987
Director
Joel Schumacher
The vampire on the very right's head is bigger than Corey Haim.
The vampire on the very right's head is bigger than Corey Haim.

Fun Fact- The movie was originally called Lost Boys, but Corey Feldman found the missing ‘The’. Corey Haim accidentally ate it, but Corey Feldman found it again in ways that I can’t reveal to you here because it’s just too disturbing as it also involved colons.

3) The Conjuring 2

 
 
Year Released
2016
Director
James Wan
She has a mean right cross.
She has a mean right cross.

Fun Fact- The first Conjuring movie (called The Conjuring) does not have a ‘The’ in the title.

4) Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

 
 
Year Released
1986
Director
John McNaughton
Henry: Mirror of a Serial Killer.
Henry: Mirror of a Serial Killer.

I know, you’re like ‘WHAT!!! This movie does not have a ‘THE’ in the title. I want my money back!’.

Fun fact- the movie was going to be called Henry A Flattering Picture of the Serial Killer but Henry killed the ‘The’. Now you feel bad for wanting your money back.

5) Happy Death Day

 
 
Year Released
2017
Director
Christopher Landon

Not technically a ‘The’ but it does have a ‘T’, an ‘h’ and an ‘e’. So…maybe?

6) Happy Death Day

 
 
Year Released
2017
Director
Christopher Landon
This makes me think of red velvet cake.

Not technically a “The” but it does have---

Wait. It feels like I’ve done this before.

7) The Last House on the Left

 
 
Year Released
1972
Director
Wes Craven
Repeating "It's only a movie" doesn't help.  Do we really know it's over the center of hell?

I can’t really talk about this movie because it disturbs me too much. But I’ll just share it with you because you’re my close personal friend. That scene where the killer makes the girl pee in her pants made me pee in my pants when I saw it in the theater. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

8) The Halloween

 
 
Year Released
1978
Director
John Carpenter
Or "Everyone is entitled to one Good...Stairs" Get it, because there are  stairs?
Or "Everyone is entitled to one Good...Stairs" Get it, because there are stairs?

The classic movie that launched the careers of Jamie Lee Curtis and Johnny Lee Carpenter. I can’t tell you how much I love this movie, from the opening tracking shot kill to the ----

Wait! This movie doesn’t have a ‘The’ in the title. Why the eff didn’t somebody tell me before I posted this? That’s on you, people!

9) The Evil Dead

 
 
Year Released
1981
Director
Sam Raimi

Fun Fact- The 2013 remake is simply called Evil Dead because they couldn’t spell ‘The’. Sample spellings: ‘hte’, ‘guava’, ‘thoe’ (so close that time).

10) The Final Destination

 
 
Year Released
2009
Director
David R. Ellis
Who thought up this tagline?
Who thought up this tagline?

The only one of the 17 Final Destination movies to have ‘The’ in the title because the producers could only afford the rights once.

11) The Big Lebowski

 
 
Year Released
1998
Directors
Joel and Ethan Coen
With Nail Polish

I can’t really talk about this movie because it disturbs me too much. But I’ll share it with you because you’re my close personal friend. That scene where Woo pees on the Dude’s rug made me pee my pants when I saw it in the theater. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

12) The Entity

 
 
Year Released
1982
Director
Sidney J. Furie
I've never heard of a "threatening" story.
I've never heard of a "threatening" story.

Two words- Demon Rape. Fun fact- this is one of Martin Scorsese’s favorite horror movies. I think it’s because he was raped by a demon on the set of Taxi Driver while Robert De Niro and Albert Brooks just watched.

13) The Thing

 
 
Year Released
1982
Director
John Carpenter

This movie is so great, Kurt Russell actually invented the word ‘The’ and added it to the English language. He originally spelled it ‘te’, but director Johhn Carpenter took off one of the h’s from this first name and made it spell the traditional “the”. Taking off the ‘h’ took about 2 hours of surgery, but John Carpenter eventually survived but can’t remember ever making Ghosts of Mars.

14) Let the Right One in

 
 
Year Released
2008
Director
Tomas Alfredson
Even this onesheet feels chilling.
Even this onesheet feels chilling.

This Swedish vampire movie does something different by putting the “The” as the second word in the title. Those kooky foreigners. What the “The” were they thinking? #America

15) The Visit

 
 
Year Released
2015
Director
M. Night Shyamalan
You I love movies with "grandparents" in the tagline.
You I love movies with "grandparents" in the tagline.

M. Night Shyamalan’s found footage movie is the only one on this list with a rapping white kid that you just want to smack.

So that’s it. The definitive list of horror movies with ‘The’ in the title. You need not look anywhere else. But if you happen to trip and fall into anymore, let me know. Like and subscribe to my YouTube page.

I don’t have a YouTube page.
