  7. Joseph Simkus says:

    The original Evil dead….when the girl is guessing the cards and becomes possessed. Or, when the swing stops bumping the house….scared the living shit out of me. Also, the dead don’t die, another horror movie from the early 80’s gave me nightmares for sure.

  33. DreadScythe 95 says:

    Where is Silence Of The Lamps?

  34. Outleteon says:

    Silence of the lambs ? The bride of Frankenstein? I still respect the list because of Psycho being #1 definitely deserves it !

  35. Tom Shatz says:

    This is a great list. Although, I think that Halloween belongs at the top. The music! It sets a tone unlike any music in any other movie. I admit that I have never watched the Exorcist, though. I can barely watch the clips without having nightmares.

  36. Freak Omnivore says:

    Good list

  37. Erin Thode says:


  38. James Sawyer says:

    fridays my favorite franchise and I can’t even agree with part one being on here it’s a fun film by all means but not a top ten all time (part 4 is the best Friday in my opinion)

  39. LukeBailey182 says:

    Personally I would like have seen hellraiser in here. Not even an honorable mention.

  40. Viktória Derzsi says:

    omg 10.

  41. Pamela Haskell says:

    The Collector series! Made his own zombies!

  42. Ariel Ruh says:

  43. Tom Shatz says:

    One of the hardest things for horror movies to get right is the ending, and the Ring has the best/ scariest ending of any horror movie.

  44. Oscar P says:
