  2. Nord Wastelander says:

    It’s too bad that after the awesomeness of Freddy vs Jason they rebooted Nightmare on Elm street… which was horrible

  3. The Jaff says:

    Aliens is more of an action movie than a horror film. But it is a great showdown.

  4. Leo Bergmiller says:

    The Babadook ending definitely should’ve been in the 10

  5. mk6rfc1 says:

    ‘Double teaming is never fair’

    Also aliens is a sci fi-action movie not a horror movie

  6. Eric Cartman says:

    How was Me vs Your mom not on this list?

  7. Scwurt says:
