Controversial 1973 horror film The Exorcist has been voted the top scary movie of all time in a poll of British video renters.

The William Friedkin chiller, which stars Linda Blair as possessed 12-year-old REGAN, beat out stiff competition from the likes of STANLEY KUBRICK's 1980 masterpiece The Shining, which stars Jack Nicholson as a demented dad.

Nicholson's famous "Here's JOHNNY" line from the same film was voted scariest catchphrase of all time, while the Nightmare On Elm Street series' hideous FREDDY KRUEGER was the number one terrifying male character.

The full list of scariest movies is:

2. THE SHINING (1980)

3. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

4. NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)

5. Candyman (1992)

6. THE Blair Witch Project (1999)

7. Psycho (1960)

8. RINGU (1998)

9. Misery (1990)

10. The Wicker Man (1973). (NFA/WNTSU)

10. THE WICKER MAN (1973).
