Purely entertaining

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

Maybe for you, but not for me

These films inevitably pop up on most people's lists for the 70s (horror or not), so I figured I'd mention them in a separate section to avoid a plague of comment-questions. It's been 13 years now since I've seen Eraserhead, but at the time I found it an incomprehensible mess. I assume that its fans mostly love it simply because it can't be understood; I hated it. I'm not even sure if it counts as horror, unless you count the experience of trying to watch it. So it's possible a re-watch now might change my opinion, but I doubt it.

While all the rest are well-made films, I simply couldn't buy into the premise of The Exorcist or The Omen, and therefore found them more laughable than scary. Your results may differ. As for Suspiria I watched it with a group of friends during a horror movie marathon and none of us could get into it despite the fact it looked pretty. That one may require a re-watch.

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