Very well done! and some great reminders of films I need to see.
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Mar 26 18:41
Awesome list! But why Chainsaw so long down? Possession is a masterpiece!!
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Mar 26 19:10
I also thought the list was compiled with taste! Many classics there, but not necessarily the most obvious ones...
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Mar 26 22:23
Great list! A lot of my favourites up there.
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Mar 27 12:04
dystopiafilm: Chainsaw is a great and influential movie, but it didn't have as strong of an impact on me as some other films on this list.
I think it's mainly because I knew to much of it, before actually seeing the movie.
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Mar 27 17:00
Yeah, that can ruin things. I got my VHS copy from Sweden when I was 15 or something and was extremely excited! After the the final shot I couldn't move after the credits... I also like Evil dead 2 better than the first, it's so damn funny and crazy!

Bravo

Great list! I've seen all but 5 of these, I enjoyed just about all of them intensely. Guess I've gotta bump Possession up to the top of my queue and finally seeing what it's all about! Thanks for putting this together.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Jan 4 16:14
You, my dear, win 10 points for putting together one of the best (if not the best) user-made horror lists. All of them wonderful movies in their own right. Kudos.
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at Apr 27 7:05
Some of these movies are very good, but they were better when they were fresh to me back around 1972 or 73. When you are a kid whatever that scares you seems great. I can barely stomach 'Night of the Living Dead' or 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacree' anymore, but they scared the daylights out of me when I first saw them.
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Jan 15 21:34
Lots of great choices here! Some days Evil Dead II is my favorite as well, but usually I go with Night of the Living Dead or Hellraiser.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Jun 15 10:05
You have a great taste in horror movies!
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Jun 16 5:13
Fantastic well rounded horror list. Possession is one of my favorites of all time. You seen Anguish (1987)?
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Jun 19 12:43
Thanks for your comments, guys. I'm glad you like my list!

JayTrotter: Possession is a wonderful film. I haven't seen Anguish yet, because I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I hope I'll get my hands on it some day!
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Oct 19 13:40
Very cool list!
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Jan 29 17:22
Brilliant list. Love the choices you have made here. I can't disagree with any of the films I've seen. Good work!!
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Feb 16 14:24
I've been making lists of my own favorite genre films but limiting them to 25. I'm sure you can imagine the headache trying to decide on no more than that. I think I should have done as you have and upped the number! ;D
