Whenever someone lets me in on their love for—or honestly even mere interest in—horror, I get butterflies in my belly and immediately forget the names of all the movies I would like to encourage them to watch. So when I told my husband I wanted to do a top ten horror movie post, he freaked out all over me and said that my appreciation of the horror genre is limited by what we own and what he has exposed me to. I’m sure he’s right, but I don’t care. Maybe they are too modern or predictable, but lots of folks haven’t seen or even heard of some of these, so I think it’s still a valid list. I want to be able to easily direct people to the many horror films that I love, which provoke a visceral response from me, and which I find truly scary. So, sorry if I haven’t seen all the right films yet so that I can make an “informed” list or whatever it would be, but get over it, and if you haven’t seen these movies (which are in no certain order), you should!
