Are These The Best Horror Movies of All Time?
Halloween is a week away, and the anticipation is revving up for the day. Costumes are being purchased, candy for the trick-or-treaters, and the party invitations are out. This is a great time of year to cuddle up on the couch with a loved one and watch a horror movie, if you like horror movies that is.
Here's the good news, Thrillist put together a list of the Best Horror Movies of All Time, so that takes the guess-work out of which movies to pick. At least if you follow their top 75 list. Some of these movies I had never heard of, but some I have actually seen. (Disclaimer - I am not a horror movie fan, and some of these movies are the reason why.)
Here is the top 5 out of that list of 75 movies:
Yes, it's a classic. Perhaps the start of the Zombie movie craze?
Here is where we met Michael Myers, and Jamie Lee Curtis is phenomenal in her role. A bit of trivia for you, that infamous mask was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted. That's right, they used William Shatner's likeness to make Michael Myers look so danged creepy.
Alfred Hitchcock at his absolute best. Who can forget that shower scene? Or the twist at the end. This movie has been redone, parodied, and there was a TV show based on young Norman.
Ok this ranking I agree with. This was a very disturbing movie, dealing with demonic possession and the occult. Very forward for the year it was made, the special effects today look hokey, but, all in all, a very scary movie. Yes, I have seen this one. It didn't bother me as much as others, but, this is one to watch with the lights on.
Cannibalism and psychopaths, when they cross paths you get Leatherface and kin. I have not seen this movie, nor do I want to. I shudder just looking at the synopsis.
