    Top 100 Horror Films of All Time!

    Yes, I was a little influenced by Maybrick's thread, but thuthfully I have been meaning to set this up for a while now. I know, some hate lists, but some like myself get a lot of enjoyment out of reading, and creating them, and it's been a while since we have done one of these.

    Here's how it works. Everyone will create a list with their 25 favourite horror films of all time. You will have until June 30 to make any changes to your list (So please only post your list once, and just update it!). The #1 movie will be worth 25 points, #2 24 points and so on with #25 being worth 1 point. I will calculate the results (Hopefully within a day or two) and make a list that represents the Top 100 Horror Movies of All Time of Horror Digital.

    Your list should be your favourites, so don't feel like you have to add movies you aren't a huge fan of just because they were important to the genre. Also, please make sure you include the year if there are more films with the same name. With 25 slots, I think we should have a unique and interesting list beyond the same popular films you see in every other list, at least I hope it will.

    *If there are any films people want to argue are horror or not (Aliens, Army of Darkness, Jaws, ect.), I will create a poll that will run for a day to decide whether it will be allowed on the list or not.

    I don't mean this to be a threadcrap (which pretty much means it IS one), but I don't really see the point. Of course, I won't spoil anyone's fun, and if they want to do another top 100 list, knock yourselves out.

    Like Maybrick said in his other thread, it will end up being the usual suspects, that's why I get bored with top whatever lists. Plus, anything after #1 really doesn't mean much to me. Like if Night of the Living Dead is 16, and Rosemary's Baby is 26, I won't freak out. I just can't quantify movies in that sense. I mean, I might like one more than the other, but it's one thing to do a direct comparison (I.E., which movie do you like better, A or B?), but a quantifiable ranking of 1-100 just gets meaningless to me.

    The lists I do like are the more creative themed ones, like, best horror movies to take place in a single setting, etc. And really, the only time I go through any lists (whether it's on this site or from some "pro" critic or reviewer) is to see a title that I perhaps haven't seen. That will give me something to throw on my Netflix queue. But that's as far as my interest goes.

    Anyway, threadcrap over, I'll bow out of this discussion much like the guy in Workshed's animated GIF

    In reality these lists only pop up on here once every few years. If you you don't like them then don't participate. If you want to make a unique list then no one is stopping you.

    I like the idea of another top 100 list. Sure it's arbitrary, but it's always fun for me to see other peoples lists. Besides, this is sort of the Sight and Sound of horror (maybe not really but for arguments sake I'll state it is anyway) and they have a top 100 list every 10 years. I think Horror DVD's is due for another. That said, I'll have to take a moment to compile a list...


    1.Night of the Living Dead (1968)
    2.John Carpenter's The Thing
    3.Suspiria
    4.Dawn of the Dead (1978)
    5.Carrie (1976)
    6.Psycho (1960)
    7.Martin
    8.John Carpenter's Halloween
    9.Jaws
    10.Phantasm
    11.The Bride of Frankenstein
    12.Return of the Living Dead
    13.The Thing From Another World
    14.Black Sunday
    15.Shivers
    16.Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
    17.Friday the 13th (1980)
    18.The Descent
    19. The Black Cat (1934)
    20. Curse of Frankenstein
    21.John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness
    22.Candyman
    23.The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
    24. The Evil Dead (1981)

    Exactly, some make it sound like we do a new one of these every few months, when in reality it has been a couple of years. And again, as far as I know we have never tried doing the list with these rules. I know my list has almost completely changed in the past few years, so I'm sure others will have as well. Plus we have a lot of new members and a lot of old members have left, so I think it should be a unique and different list from past. I'm curious if any newer titles will make the list?
