50 Scariest Movies of All Time

Found a great list of scary movies on

1. 'The Thing' (1982)

"Scariest movie . . . ever!" We mean it. The film follows a crew stationed at an Antarctic base stalked by a shape-shifting alien. Which member of the crew is the alien? The crew doesn't know, and neither does the audience until the creature begins one of its stomach churning transformations. If the scene where the guy's head sprouting insect legs to escape doesn't give you nightmares consult a therapist immediately.

2. 'Ju-on' (2000)

Dateline, Japan: Jealous of his wife's love for another man, a man brutally kills his wife and young son. Better than the Sarah Michelle Gellar slog-fest ("The Grudge") that followed this flick, "Ju-on" is edgy — it even allows you some time to get comfortable before the heavy breathing, black blood, and phantasmagoric preschoolers start popping out of the woodwork like drunk termites. Put on a helmet, and dive in.

3. 'Rec' (2007)

Spanish reporter Angela Vidal is looking for a good story. And, when she follows a group of firefighters on an emergency call to a creepy apartment building she gets more than she bargained for. A little girl locked in a penthouse, a zombie dog, dimly lit rooms, a screaming old lady, the list of scary stuff in this flick is a mile long. Knowing a good thing when they see it, Hollywood produced its own version called "Quarantine." Stick with the original.

4. 'The Ring' (2002)

Naomi Watts. Very good looking, yes. Sassy? Yep. Try squaring her off against a weird chick who really wants to climb out of a well and kill people and eat their guts. OK, well maybe she doesn't want to eat their guts. But she does a good job of killing a lot of people in this cinematically beautiful horror romp -- and she scares the bejeezus out of Naomi Watts (left) in the process. Hey, that little kid playing the doomed son is cute, but kinda freaky. Extra points for that.

5. 'Alien' (1979)

Sigourney Weaver: hot. Alien monster: ugly. Throw them together in a futuristic, highly stylized space battleground: beautiful. And terrifying. "Alien" was important not least because it showed that the science-fiction horror genre was one of possibility — this movie was also intelligently rendered, psychologically powerful, and, well, gross. Where else can find a bloody creature being birthed from a human surrogate?

6. 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' (1978)

Why is my family acting so strangely? Why do they keep insisting that I go to sleep? What are these strange plants I see suddenly sprouting up? These are the important questions dealt with in this classic sci-fi thriller. Incidentally, if you are a big fan of uplifting endings (like the one tacked on to the original 1956 version) ... consider a different flick.

7. 'Dawn of the Dead' (1978)

Director George Romero single handedly created the zombie genre with "Night of the Living Dead." But it was the sequel, "Dawn of the Dead" that he really cranked the scares up exponentially by featuring some of the goriest scenes ever committed to film. It's no wonder the film was banned in 17 countries.

8. 'Evil Dead II' (1987)

Sam Raimi is now a famous Hollywood director, but long before he directed "Spiderman" he all but invented the horror/comedy genre with this 1987 classic. The film features cult-movie icon Bruce Campbell as a hapless hero defending himself from hordes of demons. Ever been on a roller coaster? That's what watching "Evil Dead II" is like — lots of screams.

9. 'Halloween' (1978)

It was all downhill from here on out for Jamie Lee Curtis. And we mean that. Would she ever scream like this again? Hide in a closet while a very persistent Michael Myers spent about, oh, say, 78 minutes trying to hack through the door? Did we mention she's related to the killer? Little known fact: John Carpenter wrote the theme song himself. Genius like that doesn't come along many times in a lifetime, folks.

10. 'Audition' (1999)

Hold an audition to meet women? Check. Meet the girl of your dreams? Check. All your friends say they have a bad feeling about her? Check. And so begins this horror classic featuring a lonely widower making some very bad choices when it comes to affairs of the heart. How bad? Her idea of a friendly date involves a rubber apron and medical bag full of pins. Ouch.

11. 'The Shining' (1980)

It goes without saying that a haunted hotel is going to feature lots of frights, and director Stanley Kubrick doesn't disappoint. Sure, Jack Nicholson (right) trotting around the empty halls sporting an ax and a demented look in his eyes is pretty scary, but for us the biggest jolt comes when Shelley Duval discovers his new novel consists of the line "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" written over and over and over.

12. 'Cloverfield' (2008)

One minute you and your friends are hanging out at an awesome party, the next you're on the roof watching lower Manhattan erupt into flames. Bummer. Part homage to the original "Godzilla," part allegory (Sept. 11), the film uses shaky home-video footage to give you that "you are really here" feeling as panic ensues while a 200-foot-tall monster flattens the city. And props to anyone who can sit through the subway tunnel scenes without shrieking.

13. 'Quatermass and the Pit' (1968)

Workers building a new London subway station discover a suspicious metal object buried in the earth. A German rocket from WWII? No such luck. It's an ancient Martian space craft responsible for the neighborhood's reputation for being haunted. Take our word for it; this flick is way scarier than it sounds.

14. 'The Exorcist' (1973)

Spinning heads. Vile expletives. Buckets of vomit. Sound like your last blind date? It was worse for Ellen Burstyn and Max Von Sydow, who had to play opposite Linda Blair in "The Exorcist." When this puppy first hit the silver screen, people were running out of the theater in droves. Now we call those people sissies. But as approximately 6,453 previous "Scariest Movies of All Time" lists have noted, this movie is scary.

15. 'Jaws' (1975)

Ba-dum. Ba-dum. Ba-dum. Ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum. Good movie. Scary music. And Roy Scheider, playing a stressed-out sheriff in a small beach community, steals the show here, even when Richard Dreyfuss sticks his mug into the picture. As for the shark, well, yeah, that's frightening. But who has time to be nervous about sharks? What about jellyfish? They have no brains! Good god, now that's terrifying.

16. 'Jacob's Ladder' (1990)

Tim Robbins stars as a Vietnam vet suffering from disturbing hallucinations. How disturbing you ask? Well, he keeps seeing monstrous figures waving to him from passing trains. Later, at a party, his girlfriend looks like she's dancing with some sort of alien. The only one he can turn to for help is an angelic chiropractor played by Danny Aiello. Yikes! Now that's scary.

17. 'Pan's Labyrinth' (2006)

What's scarier: fantasy or reality? Or so "Pan's Labyrinth," Mexican director Guillermo del Toro's creepy imagining, seems to ask. The young Ofelia is caught up in her own imagination as a way to escape. It's 1944 in fascist Spain, after all, and the horrors of Ofelia's daydreams rival those of her world. The fantasy flick is the perfect balance of shudder and shock. Think "Coraline," without the buttons.

18. '28 Days Later' (2002)

For a while we struggled to justify the inclusion of this flick, which is scary in a way that bends the definitions of the horror genre. Sure there are some monsters (mostly of the human variety), and a few moments that had us jumping off our seat, but the fear is generated here by the eerie landscape of a deserted England; by the societal implications of a country torn wide by biological warfare; by the gothic subtext of the penultimate scene. This was where Cillian Murphy got his start, and "28 Days Later" is worth watching for that alone.

19. 'The Changeling' (1980)

George C. Scott plays a man who retreats to a long-abandoned mansion following the accidental death of his family. Did we fail to mention that the mansion is haunted? The movie's reliance on a creepy atmosphere, as opposed to more visceral fright tactics, makes this a favorite among horror movie junkies.

20. 'Hellraiser' (1987)

Mix one skinless escapee from Hell, a sexy heroine, and an evil "Rubik's Cube" and you have the basic recipe for one of the most original horror stories to hit the big screen. Despite a limited budget, "Hellraiser" features striking visuals. Perhaps the most iconic is the Cenobites — a group of demons clad in bondage gear who literally tear their victims apart piece by piece.

21. 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (1974)

What sets this movie apart from other slasher films? Perhaps it was Leatherface's human skin mask, or maybe it was the roar of the chainsaw, or it could have been the "based on a true story" line at the beginning. Who can say? What is certain is that this is an extremely scary movie — especially Leather's happy-dance at the end of the movie. Jason could learn a few things.

22. 'The Silence of the Lambs' (1991)

Jodie Foster never signed back onto the "Lecter" franchise, and that's all the more reason to watch the original as many times as you can stomach it. Lecter versus Starling. Hopkins versus Foster. Buffalo Bill, in night-vision goggles and a human-skin suit, versus the world. All that psychological suspense aside, we know you jumped 35 feet in the air when Lecter snapped suddenly at the glass... Go on, fess up.

23. 'Janghwa, Hongryeon (A Tale of Two Sisters)' (2003)

Never has a menstrual cycle been presented as more terrifying or as, well, a harbinger for doom, death, and ghosts, than in "Janghwa, Hongryeon (A Tale of Two Sisters)." This Korean masterpiece, directed and written by Ji-woon Kim, is elusive, subtle and horribly, horribly frightening. It centers on two deranged sisters, one deranged step-mother, one deranged father, and one deranged phantom. Oh, and some birds. Scary ones.

24. 'Saw' (2004)

Initially rated NC-17 before being re-edited, "Saw" follows the travails of two men held captive by Jigsaw, a serial killer who presents his victims with a terrible choice. Avoiding the slasher flick clichés (teens being pursued by ax-wielding maniac), the film delves into darker psychological territory while still maintaining an unhealthy level of gore.

25. 'War of the Worlds' (1953)

This is without a doubt the best, and scariest, sci-fi flick from the '50s. Based loosely on H.G. Wells's classic cautionary tale, the film follows the world's failed efforts to stem an invasion from Mars. The film offers plenty of scares, but the biggest has to be the encounter with a Martian in the abandoned farm house.

26. 'Seven' (1995)

It may be the cast (Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow) that does it for "Seven," or it may just be the outrageous amount of visual profanity on display: blood, guts, and severed heads. Not to mention a really fat dead dude and a corpse who's not quite kicked the bucket. Plus, the sun didn't shine for the whole movie. Sweet.
27. 'Videodrome' (1983)

Everyone loves TV, but not as much as the hero in this story. In typical David Cronenberg fashion, the protagonist melds with his television. Symbolic? Sure. Hallucinatory? Of course. Creepy? Extremely. What follows is a big splattery mess chock full of blood, violence, and some sort of human VCR hybrid. Don't ask, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

28. 'The Mist' (2007)

"There's something in the mist. Shut the doors!" screams a bleeding man stumbling into a small town grocery store. Behind him, an impenetrable wall of mist descends. And thus begins a tale of survival. Monsters in the mist you ask? For sure! But the real horror show takes place when the trapped super market shoppers turn on each other. Thank you Mr. King for another sleepless night.

29. 'Mothman Prophecies' (2002)

Strange things are happening in Point Pleasant, W.Va. For one, Richard Gere can't figure out how he got there. Then there are the shadowy winged figures lurking around. And finally, the phone calls from someone (or something) with a creepy insect-like voice. Did we mention the phone wasn't plugged in?

30. 'Altered States' (1980)

William Hurt plays a scientist who woofs down hallucinogenic drugs and floats in an isolation chamber to ... do something. We're not entirely sure why. What we do know is that when the experiment goes awry (and don't they all?), his body begins to transform into some sort of howling blob. Yuck. Somebody should have told him to just say no to drugs.

31. 'In the Mouth of Madness' (1994)

The plot here is unimportant — some guy finds out some other guy's books are opening up some other reality, where monsters abound and things are getting all weird. Yeah, yeah, we've heard it before. Here's the important part: There is a scene where the protagonist is out driving on a road at night. He hears a clicking sound. He rolls down the window. A bike rolls up next to him with a gray haired creature at the helm. The creature leers at the protagonist. You'd scream too, you big sissy.

32. 'Session 9' (2001)

A cleaning crew working at an abandoned mental hospital is an obvious recipe for scares. You just know that something bad is going to happen. And happen it does. It's only at the end do we - the audience - realize how crazy one of the crew members has been since the beginning. As an added bonus the film was shot at the former state hospital in Danvers, Mass.

33. 'Gates of Hell' (1980)

As the title suggests, the gates of Hell are opening and "odd" things begin to happen in the town of Dunwich. We're not talking like dogs and cats living together, we mean crazy stuff like a girl (for no apparent reason) hurling up her own intestines. If you're a fan of graphic gore and bad lip-syncing the Italian-made "Gates of Hell" might be your favorite film.

34. 'Salem's Lot' (1979)

Turns out vampires are a lot like cockroaches. One moves to town, and the next thing you know there are dozens of them creeping around feeding on the locals. This is the premise of our favorite Stephen King story. The movie, while flawed, still has some great scary moments including a "dead" kid scratching at his friend's second story window. And, as an added bonus, it stars David Soul who played Hutch in "Starsky & Hutch." Dy-no-mite!

35. 'The Fly' (1986)

What do you get when you cross a classic Kafka tale, a lot of goop, Geena Davis, and Jeff Goldblum? No, the answer's not "Reading Rainbow." "The Fly" is a psychological thriller as it flips human morality on its head (think twice before you crush that little ant under your foot). The movie also has enough special effects to make your stomach churn; and that maggot scene, well… you get the idea.

36. 'Nightmare on Elm Street' (1984)

Here's the gist: In the dreams of his victims, a murderer named Freddy stalks the children of the members of the lynch mob that killed him. Sounds boring? Just wait for the scene when Johnny Depp gets swallowed by his bed and spit out in a giant spray of blood. Awesome! Plus, those claws Freddy has are kind of creepy.

37. 'Open Water' (2003)

A simple plot is sometimes the best. The film tells the story of a married couple on a Caribbean diving expedition left in the open ocean accidentally. They assume someone will discover they're missing and start searching for them. Wrong! Sure, the circling sharks are scary, but the sense of being hopelessly forgotten left us squirming.

38. 'Pet Sematary' (1989)

When you've penned the book behind the Jack Nicholson screamer "The Shining," people start closing their eyes in advance. That's not always such a bad idea. Stephen King's "Pet Sematary" is an oft-overlooked horror gem, which elicits chills less through a constant barrage of suspenseful plot jolts than a dead-on portrayal of the darker side of human nature.

Pictured: King portrayed a minister in the film.

39. 'Amityville Horror' (1978)

A family moves into a perfectly nice house in Amityville, N.Y. Then things begin to happen: black goo comes out of the toilet, flies appear (does this have anything to do with the toilet?), a voice tells a priest to "get out," and something with glowing red eyes peers through the windows at night. Sure it was an "Exorcist" rip-off, but it was "based on a true story!" That's got to count for something.

40. 'Eraserhead' (1977)

Considered the greatest cult movie of all time, "Eraserhead" is not your average horror movie. The film employs bizarre imagery to create a deeply unsettling tone. We dare you to not reach for the remote in the scene of Eraserhead trying to feed his misshapen "son." It might go down in history as the single most disturbing movie scene ever. Even by art-house standards, this flick is a tough pill to swallow.

41. 'Dawn of the Dead' (2004)

A remake of George Romero's classic (#7 on this list). Same basic story, but updated. As the world is over-run with the undead, a group of survivors find refuge in a shopping mall. This time around, the zombies don't shuffle they haul ass. And they don't stop until they're in little pieces. While it lacks the satire of the original, it's bigger budget means more thrills. Oddly the best, and scariest scenes in the film happen as the closing credits roll. Just hang in there.

42. 'Event Horizon' (1997)

This movie is visceral, gritty, graphic. The plot is complicated, intelligent, and rewards the viewer who pays close attention to the film. Unfortunately, the above ingredients probably canceled out the enjoyment of the majority of the folks who rented this flick — after all, we all like a dose of stupidity and a glossy sheen to our horror. Oh, well. If you're still searching for the best futuristic scream-fest since "Alien," look no further.

43. 'The Brood' (1979)

This one centers on a husband trying to uncover a shady psychiatrist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife. Sound good so far? Wait 'til we get to the bloody attacks committed by a brood of mutant children. They're like teletubbies covered in mucus, minus the handbags and those stupid antenna things.

44. 'Rosemary's Baby' (1968)

Roman Polanski wrote the screenplay to this classic, which deserves credit for its sheer audacity: the devil on earth? We thought that honor went to Derek Jeter. But seriously, it doesn't get much better than this: Rosemary (Mia Farrow) and Guy Woodhouse (John Cassavetes) move into an apartment in a building with a bad reputation (was it in Allston?). Bad things happen. Watch the movie for details.

45. 'The Blob' (1988)

The posters for this movie carried a simple tagline: "Scream now, while there's still room to breathe." "The Blob," contrary to popular opinion, did not resemble and did not care about your petty human humor. It just wanted to eat you alive. Still laughing? We didn't think so.

46. 'The Wicker Man' (1973)

A British police officer heads off to a remote island to investigate the disappearance of a young girl. Of course, he uncovers evidence of something more ominous going on and ends up getting a place of honor at a druidic ceremony -- inside the wicker man. This is not one of those thrill-a-minute movies. The pace is slow, but the payoff at the end is well worth it.

47. 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' (1971)

How could a children's movie sneak onto this list, you ask? What about the Oompa Loompas? What about all the whimsical sets and family-friendly ending? Apparently you haven't seen this 1971 film in a while. The scene on the freaky ferry boat is ridiculously scary — especially if you are a kid.

48. 'Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2' (2000)

Yes, "The Blair Witch Project" was good, but wasn't it a little gimmicky? "Book of Shadows," on the other hand, is dark, creepy, original, and smart. Yes, smart. Trust us.

49. 'The Innocents' (1961)

There are few films that deal with insanity as deftly as this one, based on Henry James's "The Turn of the Screw." Are the ghosts in this film real, or just imagined by the nanny and the creepy children she's sworn to protect? While there are a few jump-out-of-your-seat moments, most of the scares come from the gothic atmosphere.

50. 'Arachnophobia' (1990)

Spiders. John Goodman with a blowtorch. Who's scarier? I'm sure we could ask Roseanne, but that's the subject of a much more frightening movie. Anyway, as anyone who has ever squashed a spider can attest, things with eight legs are creepy. Gross. Big ones that fly through the air when provoked? Even worse.

Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is a 2010 American 3D computer-animated film. It is the third and currently final film in the Toy Story series. The film was produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Lee Unkrich, who edited the previous films, and co-directed the second, took over as director. In his place, Ken Schretzmann is the editor.

Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, John Ratzenberger, Wallace Shawn, Jeff Pidgeon, Jodi Benson, R. Lee Ermey, John Morris, and Laurie Metcalf all reprised their voice-over roles from the previous films. Jim Varney, who played Slinky Dog in the first two films, and Joe Ranft, who portrayed Wheezy and Lenny, both died before production began on the third film. The role of Slinky was taken over by Blake Clark, while Ranft's characters and various others were written out of the story (Wheezy, Etch, and Bo Peep, for example, are mentioned in the beginning as having been sold). New characters include voice-overs by Ned Beatty, Timothy Dalton, Bonnie Hunt, Whoopi Goldberg, Jeff Garlin, and Michael Keaton.

Toy Story 3 was released worldwide from June through October. The feature broke the record of Shrek the Third as the biggest opening day North American gross for an animated film unadjusted for inflation and a big opening with an unadjusted gross of $110,307,189. It is also the highest-grossing opening weekend for a Pixar film, as well as the highest-grossing opening weekend for a film to have opened in the month of June.

The film is currently the highest-grossing film of 2010 in the United States and Canada, and the highest-grossing film of 2010 worldwide. In July, it surpassed Finding Nemo to become Pixar's highest ever grossing film at the North American box office, and in early August, the film became Pixar's highest-grossing film worldwide and surpassed Shrek 2 as the highest-grossing animated film of all-time worldwide. In late August, Toy Story 3 became the first ever Pixar film and animated film in history to make over $1 billion worldwide. It is currently the 5th highest-grossing film worldwide of all time.

Alice in Wonderland 2010

Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 American fantasy adventure film directed by Tim Burton based on the 1865 Fantasy novel Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol, written by Linda Woolverton, and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover, Michael Sheen, and Stephen Fry. Wasikowska plays nineteen year old Alice, who returns to "Underland" for a second time, after originally visiting thirteen years previously. She is told that she is the only one who can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon-like creature controlled by the Red Queen who terrorizes Underland's inhabitants.

The film uses a combination of live action and 3D animation in a story that can neither be described as a sequel nor as a re-imagining. Burton developed the story because he never felt an emotional connection to the original book, with its series of events about a girl wandering from one weird character to another. The film premiered in London at the Odeon Leicester Square on February 25, 2010, and was released in Australia on March 4, 2010, and the United States and the United Kingdom on March 5, 2010, through IMAX 3D and Disney Digital 3D, as well as in traditional theaters. Despite its short theatrical-release window and mixed reviews, the film crossed the $1-billion mark in worldwide grosses.

The film features a variety of characters, many of whom are based on characters that are featured in works by Lewis Carroll.

* Mia Wasikowska played Alice Kingsleigh. When creating the character, screenwriter Linda Woolverton researched how young women were expected to behave in the Victorian era and then made her the opposite. Wasikowska read Carroll's books as a child and re-read them to prepare for her role. She said, "When we were kids, my mum would pop it in the VCR player. We would be disturbed, and wouldn't really understand it, but we couldn't look away because it was too intriguing. So I had kept that feeling about Alice, a kind of haunting feeling." Although facing pressures to conform to society's expectations, Alice grows into a stronger-willed and empowered heroine who chooses her own path; Independent columnist Liz Hoggard praised Alice as a role model for girls, describing the character as "stubborn, brave, [and] non-girlie". Mairi Ella Challen portrayed Alice as a six-year-old.
* Johnny Depp played Tarrant Hightopp, the Mad Hatter. Wasikowska said that the characters "both feel like outsiders and feel alone in their separate worlds, and have a special bond and friendship." Burton explained that Depp "tried to find a grounding to the opposed to just being mad." Burton also said that, "In a lot of versions it's a very one-note kind of character and you know [Depp's] goal was to try and bring out a human side to the strangeness of the character." The orange hair is an allusion to the mercury poisoning suffered by milliners who used mercury to cure felt, Depp believes that the character "was poisoned...and it was coming out through his hair, through his fingernails and eyes". Depp and Burton decided that the Mad Hatter's clothes, skin, hair, personality and accent would change throughout the film to reflect his emotions. In an interview with Depp, the character was paralleled to "...a mood ring, [as] his emotions are very close to the surface". The Mad Hatter is "made up of different people and their extreme sides", with a gentle voice much like the character's creator Lewis Carroll reflecting the lighter personality and with a Scottish Glaswegian accent (which Depp modeled after Gregor Fisher's Rab C. Nesbitt character) reflecting a darker, more dangerous personality. Illusionary dancer David "Elsewhere" Bernal doubled for Depp during the "Futterwacken" sequence near the end of the film
# Helena Bonham Carter played Iracebeth, the Red Queen, which is a combination of the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts. Her first name is a play on the word irascible, as she is easily irritated and quick to anger. Bonham Carter's head was digitally increased three times its original size on screen. The character hates animals, choosing to use them as servants and furniture. The actress took inspiration from her young daughter Nell, a toddler, stating that, "The Red Queen is just like a toddler, because she’s got a big head and she’s a tyrant. Toddlers have no sympathy for any living creature", adding, "Nell just bosses us around with no 'please' or 'thank yous.'"
# Anne Hathaway played Mirana, the White Queen. She was one of few characters that did not require digital manipulation. Hathaway summed up her character with a caption on a magnet of Happy Bunny holding a knife; "Cute but psycho. Things even out."[26] According to Hathaway, "She comes from the same gene pool as the Red Queen. She really likes the dark side, but she's so scared of going too far into it that she's made everything appear very light and happy. But she's living in that place out of fear that she won't be able to control herself." Hathaway described her interpretation of the White Queen as "a punk-rock vegan pacifist", with inspiration drawn from Blondie, Greta Garbo, and the artwork of Dan Flavin. Burton said that the White Queen's appearance was inspired by Nigella Lawson.
# Crispin Glover played Ilosovic Stayne, the Knave of Hearts. The character is arrogant and tricky, and while following the Red Queen's every order, he is the only one capable of calming her dramatic mood swings. Glover said, "The Red Queen has a fair amount of short-tempered reactions to things that people do, and so [the Knave] has to be quite diplomatic." Stayne's body was completely CGI with only Glover's head being live-action.
# Matt Lucas portrayed both Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Burton commented on the mixture of animation and Lucas, saying that "It's a weird mixture of things which gives his characters the disturbing quality that they so richly deserve."
# Michael Sheen portrayed Nivens McTwisp, the White Rabbit. Sheen said the character, " such an iconic character that [he] didn't feel like [he] should break the mold too much." Burton said the quality he wanted most in his clock-watching bunny was a twitchiness, also commenting that "[in] any incarnation of the [White Rabbit] through the years, there's that sort of nervousness of a rabbit."
# Alan Rickman portrayed Absolem, the Caterpillar. Although Rickman was filmed while recording his voice in a studio, his face was not composited onto the character's face as originally planned.
# Barbara Windsor portrayed Mallymkun, the Dormouse. Burton said that Windsor's voice sealed the deal for her role as the character.
# Stephen Fry portrayed Chessur, the Cheshire Cat. Burton stated that the character had a creepy quality in addition to tapping into his own hatred of cats.
# Paul Whitehouse portrayed Thackery Earwicket, the March Hare. Burton stated that because Whitehouse is a great comedic actor, a lot of his lines came from improvisation.
# Timothy Spall portrayed Bayard the Bloodhound.
# Michael Gough portrayed Uilleam, the Dodo bird. Burton said that Gough was the first person he thought of for the role of the Dodo because he has "a full life quality to his voice".
# Christopher Lee voiced the Jabberwocky for its short speaking role. While it only had a couple of lines, Burton said that he felt Lee to be a good match for the iconic character because he is "an iconic guy".
# Imelda Staunton played the Talking Flowers.
# Frank Welker provided additional voices and vocal effects.
# Leo Bill portrayed Hamish Ascot, the son of Lord Ascot.
# Frances de la Tour portrayed Imogene, Alice's aunt.
