Old Oct 12th, 2010, 07:35 PM        What are your 20 Favorite Horror Movies?
I'm always curious to hear what people consider to be the greatest horror films ever made, so share with us a list of your top 20 horror films. I'll start it off.

This list isn't in any particular order (except for the first one, which IS my favorite horror flick), and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few of my favorites, but here goes...

1. John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness"
2. Halloween III: Season of the Witch
3. A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
4. The Thing
5. Silent Night, Deadly Night
6. Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood
7. Night of the Creeps
8. Creepshow
9. Phantasm 2
10. Dark Night of the Scarecrow
11. Jack Frost
12. Evil Dead 2
13. Dead Alive
14. Killer Klowns from Outer Space
15. Jaws
16. Poltergeist 2
17. Day of the Dead (the original one, not the remake)
18. The Lost Boys
19. The Shining
20. Halloween

Ok, now it's your turn.

My list is just coming from the top of my head, so I may be omitting some of my true favourites that I just can't think of for whatever reason. Some of them are due to them actually scaring me / impressing me (Los Cronocrímenes Sci-fi/Horror), others just because I can watch them over and over (From Dusk Till Dawn). Having said that, I expect to see a lot of overlap, and maybe some hate.
  1. Evil Dead 2
  2. From Dusk Till Dawn
  3. Halloween
  4. Audition
  5. Cube
  6. Los Cronocrímenes
  7. Trick r' Treat
  8. The Shining
  9. Dead Alive (simply amazing)
  10. Scream
  11. The Thing
  12. Wrong Turn
  13. Dawn Of The Dead (2004)
  14. The Lost Boys
  15. Planet Terror
  16. Shaun Of The Dead
  17. The Descent
  18. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
  19. A Nightmare On Elm Street
  20. The Hills Have Eyes

Throwing it out there: I hate 28 Days Later. I can not stand that movie.
e: I'm also not sure whether I like Cube or Cube Zero more, I just placed Cube because I saw it much more recently. After looking over my list, I think the scariest for me are the ones about mutant hill folk. Just sayin'

And I don't really like the Horror genre.

I like the Silent Hill movie a lot too! I've played every game but Homecoming and Shattered Memories, and I really like the movie. Maybe it's because my standards for video game adaptations are low? Hmmm.

Some excellent choices! Nice to see some love for Arachnophobia too. I wasn't a huge fan of that movie when I was younger, but I really grew to love it over the years. That actually reminds me, Warlock should probably be on the list somewhere. Julian Sands is awesome in the first two films.

Also glad to see Audition getting recognition too, as it's one hell of a screwed up movie and I absolutely love it. Can't imagine what it would be like for somebody - who knows nothing about the film in advance - to watch it.

I absolutely love the first movie, but I watched the sequel probably a hundred times when I was a kid. It was a bit more comedic, sure, but it was a lot of fun to watch. The first is definitely the scarier of the two films, so it's certainly better in that regard, but I have a stronger sentimental attachment to the sequel.

Keep those lists coming

i loved arachnophobia. having that minor quirk myself any spider based movies chill me down to the bone. Quite possibly the reason i love arachnophobia so much is it's the only movie where John Goodman theoretically saves the world, lol.
