My Top 100 Horror Films

Recently, Time Out London posted their top 100 horror movies. As you’d expect with any list, I disagreed with many of their inclusions and was left flabbergasted by the movies that didn’t make the cut. Well, being an obsessive list-maker, I thought I’d come up with my own top 100 horror list. One hundred horror flicks that have influenced, pushed the boundaries, terrified and left their cinematic footprints on the world. I tried to be as objective as possible, and so this isn’t a list of my hundred favourite horror movies, but rather the ones I believe are the best the genre has to offer. Enjoy!
