I've said this before, I'll take the opinions of all of you on this board than some random website.
To be fair, I wouldn't say it's a random list from a website. They do provide the list of contributors and some of the names are pretty interesting. Clive Barker, Coffin Joe, Roger Corman, Joe Dante, Frank Darabont, Ruggero Deodato, Adam Green, Alan Jones, Jeff Lieberman, Lucky McKee, John McNaughton, Greg Nicotero, Eduardo Sanchez, Guillermo del Toro, Ti West, Rob Zombie etc.

I actually think this list is very competent and is obviously from a fan rather than critic's perspective.

My apologies. I didn't even look at anything other than the list on the site.

Yeah it's actually a decent list in what films are represented. There's a few I would replace but overall a good choice of films. For me personally though the order need to be drastically changed, but again, just my opinion.

And am I the only one that doesn't think texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the best horror films of all time? Don't get me wrong I do thoroughly enjoy it, but it would definitely not be that high in the list for me. I wouldn't even put it in my top 10!

I know we have compiled many top 100 lists on this site but we ever done something like this where everyone throws out their top 10 flicks to form the top 100 list? If not we should start one up!

What is it with you Canucks and your lists?

I kid, I kid. But only sort of. I mean, what would yet another top 10 or top 100 list made by the members of this site show? I guess my real question is, do you guys take it seriously when a movie is ranked 28th that you think should be ranked 36th? There's only so much quantification you can do with film.

I'm so tired of lists, especially in this genre, as the top films are predictable. You'll get Halloween, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Rosemary's Baby, The Thing, The Shining, some older Universal films, some Hammers. Exciting.

I liked the list in the OP, as it had some interesting titles in the lower half before it became the same ol same ol.

Yes we love ranking shit, stop ruining our fun asshole! I think every couple years compiling a list isn't a bad idea. it allows the newer members to get involved in the process.

haha Yeah I'm not going to lie I love lists! There's a book I actually want to pick up that delivers just that. I skimmed through it at the store, seemed like it would be a good bathroom book, well if I actually spent a long time in the bathroom.

The Book of Lists

http://www.amazon.ca/Book-Lists-Coll...7388928&sr=1-3

You are right though it would end up being more of the same, but like you said the last half may be interesting. Every time we do a new list I always discover a few new treasures worth checking out. That makes it all worthwhile to me.

That's what I was thinking. There are many new members here now, maybe they could add some fresh picks.

Damn I was worried about that. Guess I will go play by myself.

Actually... a lot of people at the Horror Talk forum literally think it's awful.
