Purely entertaining

None of these are essential, but they're all solidly entertaining...especially if you're into horror.

Unseen horrors

Horror movies from this decade that I haven't watched yet which may end up on this list in the future.

The 1930s decade of horror remains one of the most influential. For the first time a lot of these creatures and characters were brought to the big screen, and for some this was the first time they had voices to help bring them to life. So while the 1980s may be my personal favorite decade for horror, the 1930s are a close second due to the fact so many of these films had heavy influence on the horror films that followed them. Plus most of these were created with great care & precision to the result that they're as effective now as they were back then. What they lack in blood & gore they make up for in characterization & storytelling.

This list was helped along by the following list:
