My Top 10 Horror Films
In honor of Halloween, Fatally-Yours has put together a list of her favorite horror films ever!
One problem, though…we all know that “top ten” movie lists are a sham. Nobody can definitively say what the best movie is. Art is subjective. It’s all a matter of opinion…one man’s Citizen Kane is another man’s Daddy Day Care.
But, top ten movie lists are good for a couple of things. First, they stimulate conversation. They can get us all talking and discussing the merits of our favorite flicks. Also, they can expose little-known movies to a broader audience.
So, we hope you enjoy the top 10 list below and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
1. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974, Tobe Hooper)
2. Suspiria (1977, Dario Argento)
3. The Tenant (1976, Roman Polanski)
4. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920, Robert Weine)
5. Return of the Living Dead (1985, Dan O’Bannon)
6. Blood and Black Lace (1964, Mario Bava)
7. Tale of Two Sisters (2003, Ji-Woon Kim)
8. Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972, Lucio Fulci)
9. The Descent (2006, Neil Marshall)
10. Ginger Snaps (2002, John Fawcett)
Runners up: Audition, American Werewolf in London, The Shining, Dawn of the Dead, The Devil’s Backbone, Rosemary’s Baby, etc.
