Halloween Post: The 57 Best Horror Movies List

(Originally posted on Blogger site.)

Halloween Ghost

I felt that the TimeOut London movie list I came across yesterday was one of the better lists of this kind that I’d ever seen. However, it still struck me as somewhat lacking; though it had included some seminal horror films that often get overlooked by top-genre lists, there were some movies on it that I felt were not deserving. So I decided to make my own for the Halloween season. (Plus, the hurricane has us stuck, so why not…)
