My Top 20

Okay, I just had to do it. Yes, I'm a thief and a copycat and whatever words you can come up with. But seeing other top 20 lists just made me wonder if I could commit to a list of my own.  I still have A LOT more films that I need to see, but my list for right now is as follows (in no order):

Easy one. First movie to give me nightmares for years.

Lots of good female characters, lots of claustrophobia, lots of blood.

I love me some zombies and lasers that tear people into little pieces (even if it was bitten from Cube).

The Omen (1976)
Beautiful decapitation and awesome over-the-top music.

Yup, the remake. Try to tell me that it wasn't great. Just try.

The Fly (1986)
Cronenberg's the man. And this movie was gross. In a really giddy good way.

Wrong Turn (2003)
One of the best in recent years.

Saw (2004)
Can't help it. I love it.

Horror-comedy at its best.

Carrie (1976)
Do I need to explain why?

My favorite of Asian horror

My favorite EVER.

Still kicks ass to this day, with the one and only person who should ever play Freddy.

Incredibly haunting and beautiful ghost story.

Hellraiser (1987)
"Jesus wept!"

Evil Dead 2 (1987)
The sequel to the ultimate experience in grueling terror!

Scream (1996) 
Have and will always be a Scream supporter and lover.

[REC] (2007)
Although the American version is pretty much the same, I still can't get over how awesome this one was.

The French seem like they just wade around in blood all day and then make a movie out of it. For that, I love them.

More sci-fi but has definite horror elements - and a shit ton of fantastic actors.


  1. I'm glad you like Wrong Turn so much. I saw it twice in the theater and just got the blu-ray. It fuckin' roxxxx (with four X's). People I talk to that have seen it never seem very impressed with it.

  2. Isn't High Tension amazing?!! I freaking love that movie

  3. Great list! I need to do that but I'm afraid I wont be able to think of 20 movies since I love a crap load of them.

  4. @Thomas - Wrong Turn does not get the love it deserves!

    @Nicole - High Tension is more than amazing - IT IS SUPER-DUPER FANTASTICAL.

  5. I absolutely LOVED the Orphanage. Very scary, but very sweet.

  6. most of them I have seen and love. Rec I still havn't and same with Rec, I really must see them. Scream is one of my favourites, and can't wait until no.4

  7. Amazing list! I saw some of them and I will add the others to my watch list.
