    ...and one that I'm too ashamed to mention.

    Couldn't check five in this one. Some I haven't seen, and some I just don't like well enough.

    Had to pick Giant Spider Invasion. Saw it on a double bill with Godzilla Vs Megalon. It's not the greatest film but has great memories.

    Jaws is not a horror film. Never has been, never will be.

    If Jaws is a horror film for less than 20 seconds of a shark onscreen biting people and brooding a little bit underwater, every single film Tim Burton made from 1984 to 1992 were horror films. And so is Spaceballs, the 90's Addams Family movies, Sybil, The Witches of Eastwick, The Never-Ending Story, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery...

    Please, people, can we stop this madness?

    Anyway, I didn't vote because there are far too many mis-categorized films. As deeply horrifying as The Stepford Wives is, if Westworld isn't a horror film- neither is SW. Picnic at Hanging Rock isn't even scary, it's mysterious and hypnotic but there's nothing horrific about it even in theory. By virtue of the way it flows, it isn't suspenseful either. Ilsa and Night Train Murders are exploitation. Etc.

    I will never stop calling Jaws a horror film! :p

    The first half is definitely horror (POV shots from the killer's perspective, a head popping out of a boat, the way the attacks are filmed and the music that is used to unsettle - to this day, I still find the attacks disturbing and upsetting, a gratuitous shot of a bloody chewed off leg falling to the bottom of the ocean floor, crabs making a feast out of Chrissie's severed arm), the second half I would agree with many others that it plays more like an action adventure but even then, there are a few jump scares thrown in.

    I think the horror in Stepford Wives is the horror of conformity. I haven't seen Westworld so I don't know how one dictates the other but I've always seen Stepford Wives as a satirical kind of horror.

    I didn't find Picnic at Hanging Rock scary either but there was a strong sense of dread and anxiety along with the mysterious hynoptic element. The horror element comes from the existential anxiety of things that we will never know and events we may never understand but will continue to haunt us.

    Jaws is definitely a horror film. It may also be considered a thiller or adventure film or whatever but it is still horror. I can't recall any other film that affected people the same way. How many of you have heard someone say that after seeing Jaws they wouldn't go in the water? If that isn't horrific nothing is. Virtually any film you see can be categorized in multiple genres but to say Jaws isn't horror is just to argue.
