October is here and if you aren't watching a new horror movie each night.... you are doing it wrong. Everyone knows that October and Halloween are all about the scary movies and humans have a strange fascination with the scary which is why there are so many horror movies made.

However, what are the horror movies that have stuck through the changing times and made the most money while at it? Forbes put together a list of the highest grossing horror movies of all time and I have the top 10 following. I have to say number one surprised me because I do not consider it a horror movie but also it has to do with biggest fear so I am on the fence on this.

1.  "Jaws" (1975),  $1.154 billion

2.  "The Exorcist" (1973),  $996.5 million

3.  "Ghostbusters" (1984),  $641.3 million
