1. Dead Alive (1992)
Day 1: A memorable animal in a horror movie



A more cultivated person would probably go for the great white shark from Jaws or the birds from The Birds. But all I could think about was the rat monkey from Brain Dead. That thing is fucking hilarious.

2. Gremlins (1984)
Day 2: One of your earliest encounters with the horror genre



I saw Gremlins for the first time on a Christmas break when I was about 6 or 7. It totally made my holidays.

3. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Day 3: A favorite saw or chainsaw scene



I fell like Captain Obvious here, but the final scene from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is absolutely epic.

4. The Fly (1986)
Day 4: A great horror movie doctor



Poor doctor Seth Brundle.

5. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Day 5: Favorite horror director



George A. Romero hasn't really brought his A game in the recent years, but the guy is still a genius. With a pair of killa' frames.

6. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Day 6: Your favorite movie by your favorite director



The best zombie movie ever made.

7. The Evil Dead (1981)

Enough said.

People who added this item 2211  Average listal rating (1509 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.1 
9. Cloverfield (2008)
Day 9: A boring horror movie



I still haven't forgiven my friends for dragging me into this watered down PG-13 JJ Abrams piece of garbage. It pains me to even call this crapfest a "horror movie".
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 711  Average listal rating (455 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.5 
10. Slither (2006)
Day 10: An instant classic



A wonderful modernized and intentionally cheesy homage to the classic 1980's horror comedies. Great practical gore effects, hilariously over the top dialogue and a main character called Grant Grant. What's not to love?
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 216  Average listal rating (118 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 6.5 
11. Maniac (1980)
Day 11: Most psychotic killer



This guy was seriously fucked up. A wonderful performance by Joe Spinell.

12. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
Day 12: The goriest movie you’ve seen

ranna's rating:

People who added this item 383  Average listal rating (226 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 7.8 
13. Eyes Without a Face (1960)
Day 13: Favorite foreign horror



Since I'm Finnish pretty much every horror film out there is "foreign" to me. But if we're talking about non English speaking movies Eyes Without A Face is probably my favorite.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 745  Average listal rating (526 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
14. They Live (1988)
Day 14: The cheesiest horror you’ve ever seen



"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubblegum."
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 187  Average listal rating (115 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 6.8 
15. From Beyond (1986)
Day 15: A great 80’s horror movie



Not my favorite 80's flick, but a totally underrated little gem by Stuart Gordon of Re-animator fame.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 236  Average listal rating (147 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
16. The Loved Ones (2009)
Day 16: Great indie horror



Haven't seen a family this dysfunctional since the dinner scene in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 3900  Average listal rating (2700 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.5 
17. Alien (1979)
Day 17: Favorite horror franchise

ranna's rating:

People who added this item 77  Average listal rating (48 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 5.4 
18. Xtro (1983)
Day 18: A movie people hate that you love



Xtro is a dirty, cheesy, obscure horror exploitation film. But it's all kinds of awesome at that. It's a shame I seem to be the only person on this planet who thinks so.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 1425  Average listal rating (967 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
19. Drag Me To Hell (2009)
Day 19: A movie that disappointed you



PG-13, a lot of jump scares and one mildly creepy old lady. I expect better from the guy who did The Evil Dead trilogy.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 224  Average listal rating (139 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.2 
20. Sleepaway Camp (1983)
Day 20: A great twist ending



One of those cases where the twist ending really makes the movie.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 579  Average listal rating (380 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 6.9 
21. High Tension (2003)
Day 21: A horrible/lame twist



One of those cases where the twist ending really destroys the movie.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 5572  Average listal rating (3732 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.5 
22. The Shining (1980)
Day 22: Best movie based on a book



A lot better than the book, actually.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 143  Average listal rating (92 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 5.9 
23. Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)
Day 23: Scariest old person



That old geezer seriously freaks me out.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 560  Average listal rating (375 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.8 
24. Trick 'r Treat (2007)
Day 24: A movie you expected to be bad, but enjoyed

ranna's rating:

People who added this item 2200  Average listal rating (1384 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating 5.6 
25. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
Day 25: A franchise you don’t like



Generic and boring to the max.
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 229  Average listal rating (163 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating 4.9 
26. The Fly II (1989)
Day 26: Worst sequel

ranna's rating:

People who added this item 80  Average listal rating (43 ratings) 4.6  IMDB Rating 3.8 
27. The Mangler (1995)
Day 27: Favorite OR least favorite Stephen King movie



An ironing machine with a TASTE FOR BLOOD. And no, it can't move by it's own. About as horrifying as the satanic floor lamp in Amityville 4.
Why Tobe Hooper, why?
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 582  Average listal rating (370 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.3 
28. The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
Day 28: A great zombie movie



You gotta hand it to the first film in which zombies constantly blabbered about "Brraaains! More Brains!".
ranna's rating:

People who added this item 610  Average listal rating (385 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 5.6 
29. Saw 3D (2010)
Day 29: A movie you refuse to watch



The first one was okay, the second one was kind of bad and after the terrible third installment I totally gave up. It was like watching The Bold and The Beautiful with random torture scenes. I think I'd rather hang around in one of Jigsaw's elaborate traps than sit through the rest of these movies.

People who added this item 108  Average listal rating (49 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.7 
30. Livid (2011)
Day 30: One you need to watch, a.s.a.p.



I know everyone keeps bashing this, but I really enjoyed Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury's previous film Inside. And at least it seems to be visually very beautiful.

Your taste in horror is impeccable!! I agree with lots of these- especially the two twist-ending categories. Can't wait for Livid either. I'll probably take a crack at doing one of these lists, but might be tough not to included some of the same answers as you. Great job!

Propsit siitä, että valitsit kaikkien aikojen rumimman ja hirveimmän otuksen tuohon ekaan. Hieno teos!

A great list! Horror is one of my favorite genres and I love a number of the ones you've listed here. I think I will have to make a list like this, too.
