Scare rating: Your eight-year-old brother could manage this one.

Based on the Japanese manga series of the same name, Death Note follows a high school student named Light Turner who finds a notebook with the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it.

This power comes along with a freaky Shinigami (a Japanese god of death) named Ryuk who stalks Light and encourages him to engage in all sorts of shenanigans.
