Great list. I need to watch Diabolique some time.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 14 0:16
I took me quite a while to get around to watching it and it was just wonderful. It has a few scenes that stick in your head a while. Sorry the list is less than done, I just started the site and am looking to add a lot more horror lists and add to this one and have some descriptions as well. Trying to do this with a paper due tomorrow slowed me down a bit.

Some nice choices on this list! I see from your above comment it's not done, so I'll have to come back to it in the near future. For now though, it's pretty awesome to see Les Diaboliques at the top (finally watched it this year), & I've seen all but 4 you've listed so far.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jan 8 11:07
Yep, some real winners on this list. A number of my favorites are all here!
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Jan 24 21:43
Seen 30 of these, so clearly I need to check the rest out (most were already marked as want-to-watch). Not a fan of Exorcist or Suspiria personally, but I understand why people love them. The rest are favorites of mine too.

Nice to see love for Monster Squad! And thanks for the vote/inclusion of my Nightmare image. :)

One of the greatest lists I've ever seen!!! AMAZING!
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Feb 3 6:18
Don't recall May being on here last time I looked. It's one of my favorites too.
