My Top Ten Horror Movies

Happy Halloween! I guess I better do this now, then. Below are my Top Ten Horror Movies.

This was difficult. In order to do this, I’ve decided to leave a couple films out which are favorites of mine because I don’t exactly see them as “horror” films…

Alien/Aliens (Two of my favorite films. I don’t think “horror” with these – I think sci-fi)
Jaws (Again, I just think “classic blockbuster”)

So here are my Top Ten Horror Movies counting down from ten:

10. Carrie

The Lost Boys (if I was honest this would be top ten but I see it as more of a teen movie)
Night Of The Comet
Chopping Mall (yep)
Pet Sematary (screw it – most every movie based on a Stephen King story)
The Birds

  1. Great list of movies. I was able to see The Shining in theaters this week and although I have seen it many times before That movie still manages to disturb me every time. I hope to see the original Carrie on the big screen soon.

    • Thanks. πŸ™‚ I know we like quite a few of the same ones. Yeah – when looking at horror films online, Alien keeps coming up but I just don’t see it that way. It would be at number one on this list if so.

  2. I think were about on the same page when it comes to horror flicks. I like the ones on your top ten a lot. I haven’t seen all but the ones I have.

  3. I’m old enough to remember seeing Night of the Comet in the theater, and I was young enough then to have taken it seriously. I was actually creeped out by some scenes.

  5. The Orphanage was one of the best contemporary horror movies I’ve seen in a long time. I love it when that happens! Good review, although I’m not one for zombies so I have to disagree on your number 1 – otherwise, all great choices!

    • Thanks! Yep – I’d love to see more horror like The Orphanage instead of the usual awful horror sequels & remakes these days. And it’s definitely all about the Romero zombie movies for me more than any other zombie films. : )
