Horror Special: Top 50 Horror Films!

Okay, I have to do my obligatory (albeit late) list of my all time favorite horror movies! See if you agree! If I missed any, please leave a comment and I'll add it!

1) Halloween (1978) --John Carpenter's masterpiece. Michael Myers behind his frozen mask=pure terror.
2) Psycho (1960)--There is a good reason why everyone picks Psycho as a favorite. I especially love the stair scene.
3) Alien (1979)--Just one can kill seven.
4) Se7en (1995)--Speaking of seven, don't open the box!
5) Freaks (1932)--One of us! One of us!
6) Audition (1999)--As I mentioned earlier, the only movie to ever to make me physically ill.
7) Don’t Look Now (1973)--Beware of spectres from your past, they might turn out to be...
8) Dawn of the Dead (1978)--Zombies! On an escalator!
9) Night of the Living Dead (1968)--Zombie children are NOT okay.
10) Silence of the Lambs (1991)--It rubs the lotion on its skin...
11) The Thing (1982)--When you consider how many people have ripped this movie off, you start to appreciate it more.
12) The Ring (American Version) (2002)--Finding the dead girl in the closet was more than I could take.
13) Jaws (1975)--We're gonna need a bigger boat.
14) The Exorcist (1973)--Take meee!
15) Suspiria (1977)--Satan's ballet company. Don't stand under the chandelier.
16) Creepshow (1981)--Hilarious, campy, terrifying...this one's got it all!
17) The Shining (1980)--Okay, so, it's not the book, but Kubrick manages to tell a story that is, in some ways, better!
18) Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)--The scene with the girl getting dragged up and down the walls...holy shit.
19) Cat People (1942)-- Strange, fierce pleasures that no other woman could ever feel!
20) Rosemary’s Baby (1968)--It is only really scary the first time, but it is truly creepy.
21) The Haunting (1963)--For very little money, Robert Wise scares the crap out of Claire Bloom.
22) Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)--Doesn't anyone care about ME and MY BOY???
23) Carrie (1976)--One of my all time favorite films. Piper Laurie is as scary as Ann Coulter.
24) Aliens (1986)--Not as scary as the first, but almost.
25) Arachnophobia (1990)--More funny than scary, but it is truly one of the finest additions to the creature subgenre
26) The Last House on the Left (1972)--Rape is much more terrifying than giant subterranian worms.
27) Tremors (1990)--AGH! Giant subterranean worms!
28) House of Wax (1953)--Vincent Price at his finest.
29) Child's Play (1988)--This movie made me too scared to play with my My Buddy Doll. I locked him in the closet.
30) Dracula (1931)--He never drinks...wine.
31) An American Werewolf in London (1981)
32) The Fly (1986)--I used to fantasize about Jeff Goldblum. Then I saw his face fall off. Thanks a lot, David Cronenberg!
33) The Hills Have Eyes (1978)--Brutal.
34) The Lost Boys (1987)--A bunch of angst-ridden pseudo-gay vampire teenagers, plus Corey & Corey. Awesome.
35) Evil Dead (1982)--A fabulously sick movie that changed the face of horror forever.
36) The Vanishing (1988)--When you lose your wife at a truck stop, let it go.
37) The Birds (1963)--Phone booths are NOT seagull proof, you fool.
38) Peeping Tom (1960)--The cameraman as the angel of death. Truly rare and disturbing.
39) Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)--Better than the original, and absolutely terrifying.
40) Silver Bullet (1985)--My favorite werewolf movie, it manages to be scary and lighthearted at the same time.
41) Nosferatu (1922)--I think Max Schreck really was a vampire in real life.
42) The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)--There is a good reason why Rob Zombie rips off this movie so often.
43) Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)--He killed his momma!
44) Franksenstein (1931)--The best adaptation of the book, in my opinion.
45) White Zombie (1932)--Bela Lugosi's classic zombie slave love story.
46) Scream (1996)--I just love meta-horror! Scream is a rare combo of tongue-in-cheek and real suspense.
47) 28 Days Later (2002)--A terrifying, breakneck zombie picture.
48) The Devil’s Backbone (2001)--The Spanish Civil War, orphans, ghosts, gold, and masterful direction by Del Toro.
49) Dog Soldiers (2002)--Werewolves of Scotland...Aaaooooo!
50) Eyes Without a Face (1960)--The original Face Off.

Hmmmm...I don't know if I'd even include The Brood in a Top 50 List--it's just so weird so I should have included in the "weird" list! Scanners, well that is a classic that we both left out!
