    I know lists are done to death, but since this is a bit of a slow period for the horror community I thought why not. And surprisingly I couldn't find anything like this in the search thread so I thought it would be fun. I'm sure some lists will include a lot of the same choices, but I'm also sure that some will include some movies that will encourage others to check them out. Also, I'm curious to see what movies will make the most lists.

    It seems like many have a hard time defending the 90's and I will agree with them. In my opinion it was definitely the weakest decade for horror, and that made this list a little easier to narrow down then some of the others. That isn't to say there weren't any amazing horror films, just that they were fewer and far between. Anyways here goes, my favourite movies from the 90's.


    Top 10 Horror Movies of the 90's

    10. House on Haunted Hill (1999 Remake)
    9. Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990)
    8. Trauma (1993)
    7. Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
    6. Dead Alive (1992)
    5. Scream (1996)
    4. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
    3. Exorcist 3 (1990)
    2. Blair Witch Project (1999)

    and my favourite movie from the 90's is...

    1. Army of Darkness (1993)

    Yes, I know many will argue this isn't even a horror film, and in some ways they're right. But, I'm going to count it here anyway as there are definitely some horror moments in it. That and the fact that it is part 3 of a horror trilogy and I wouldn't know where else to categorize it. Adventure/ Horror/ Action/ Comedy? Anyways, I have seen this movie probably more times then any other movie and it never seems to get old. Bruce Campbell's witty one liners and large chin vs. the Army of Darkness, what more could you ask for?

    While the 70's are my favorite decade for horror, 90's horror did very little for me. I can't come up with a top ten. My list had six films on it and one of them I could probably do without. :eek:
