Best Airplane Horror Movies

Like the news of flight attendants losing it on flights and shouting, causing scenes and scaring passengers isn't enough, or the threat of shoe bombers and more hasn't made us shell-shocked, along with rising costs, security issues, and general frustration with small tight seating and no meals for free, flying is a horror. But, we must have always known that because there are some killer horror movies based on flying...

Melodrama about a bomber on board an airplane, an airport almost closed by snow, and various personal problems of the people involved.

An FBI agent takes on a plane full of deadly and poisonous snakes, deliberately released to kill a witness being flown from Honolulu to Los Angeles to testify against a mob boss.

The Ghost of Flight 401
An aircraft crashes in the Florida Everglades, killing 103 passengers. After the wreckage is removed, salvageable parts from the plane are used to repair other aircraft. Soon passengers and crew on those aircraft report seeing what they believe to be the ghost of the wrecked airplane's flight engineer

Executive Decision
When terrorists seize control of an airliner, an intelligence analyst accompanies a commando unit for a midair boarding operation.

Twilight Zone
Four horror/sci-fi segments directed by four famous directors which are their own versions of classic stories from Rod Serling's landmark television series.

  1. The segment from Twilight Zone:The Movie with the creature on the airplane wing is my favorite in this catagory! So creepy... The plane crash scene in Castaway is probably the most realistic ever put to film. That makes you think twice about flying.
