Top Ten Favorite Horror Films

#10 – Day of the Dead

Probably one of the lesser embraced George A Romero zombie films, but i like Day of the Dead a lot. It is an interesting story and you cannot beat Bub, the walkman listening, army saluting, gun toting friendly zombie!

#9 – Psycho

Not a Halloween goes bye without me watching Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. I am fairly new to this film, but it is brilliant and i love every minute of it.

#8 – From Dusk till Dawn

Half crime movie, half vampire film. When i first saw this film it was at a test screening and they did not let us know that it would ultimately become a vampire film, so when the characters see that vampires exist, the audience was just as confused. It was one of the most amazing experiences i ever had in a theater and wish they did not advertise this film as a vampire flick.

#7 – Dawn of the Dead

This is probably George A Romero’s most beloved zombie film. Dawn of the Dead is amazing. There is a ton of action and a shit-load of gore. I am not a huge fan of horror movies and being scared, but splatter-fests fire me up!

#6 – Alien

Beautifully shot, incredible atmosphere and great characters makes Ridley Scott’s Alien one of the greatest horror films of all time. I love this film so much.

#5 – Shaun of the Dead

Mostly comedy, this movie is a great take on a world overrun by zombies! Edgar Wright, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg put out a great movie with tons of laughs, great makeup FX and killer humor.

#4 – Evil Dead 2

A near perfect sequel, The Evil Dead 2 is full of suspense, gore and fun! Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell do it again! “Groovy.”

#3 – John Carpenter’s The Thing

This film reminds me of Alien, but in Antarctica. The Makeup FX by Rob Bottin is nothing short of amazing. The movie is scary, gory and suspense filled. Besides, you can’t beat “The Russ”!

#2 – Dead Alive (aka Brain Dead)

Before he did Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson made what is touted as “The goriest fright film of all time” and they aren’t kidding! If you have not seen this movie, you have to stick it in your Netflix queue! It is a pretty fun and silly story, but when you get to the last half hour, you won’t believe your eyes!! The blood and gore and gag effects are so inspired. They are clever and fun as hell. Run, don’t walk to see Dead Alive!

#1 – The Evil Dead

The first time i saw this film, i was scared shitless. Seriously, nothing scared me more than Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead! I am pretty sure that everyone has seen this film by now, if you haven’t, turn off your computer and go buy this film. It is fucked up, scary, gory and slightly hilarious. I cannot get enough of this film!

    Man, you know I saw The Evil Dead at a tender, wee age and it totally haunted my dreams for most of my young life. Then, what else could possible happen but I should fall helplessly in love with a man that puts that f’ing movie on while cleaning or BEFORE BED. Talk about immersion therapy.
