Horror Cinema

I’ve been a fan of horror cinema for as long as I can remember. I thought that this Halloween would be a good time to compile my list of favorite horror films. My only criteria was how many times I’ve seen the movie. I figure if I’ve seen a film 30 times, it must be my favorite. Not worried about critical acclaim, uniqueness, box office success, level of gore, actors, directors, etc. As you can see by my list I don’t particularly like slasher films or torture porn. I also didn’t list the comedy horror films, even though some of those are great. I also lean towards horror of the 70’s and 80’s, probably because that is when I was first introduced to horror as a teenager.

I have listed the films by decade and by chronological order, because I’m a geek like that.
Enjoy.
