25 best horror movies

In honor of the recent holiday festivities, I’ve assembled my list of my favorite 25 horror movies of all times. Now, bear in mind that “horror” is a hard thing to define, so I’ve used it in the broader sense of “horror/thriller.” Also, it’s important to note that I (shamefully) have not seen several must-see horror flicks which include the early classics (Dracula, Frankenstein, Nosferatu) and some other important later films (The Omen, Rosemary’s Baby, Cape Fear). But nonetheless, here is what I have to offer:

25. Open Water (2004) — 24. Let the Right One In (2008) — 23. Carrie (1976)
22. The Others (2001) — 21. Poltergeist (1982)


20. The Descent (2005) — 19. Alien (1979) — 18. The Birds (1963)
17. Dawn of the Dead (2004) — 16. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)


15. Vertigo (1958) — 14. What Lies Beneath (2000) — 13. Sleepy Hollow (1999)
12. Misery (1990) — 11. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)


10. Halloween (1978) — 9. The Shining (1980) — 8. Drag Me To Hell (2009)
7. The Sixth Sense (1999) — 6. 28 Days Later (2003)


5. The Exorcist (1973) — 4. Jaws (1975) — 3. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
2. Psycho (1960) — 1. Rear Window (1954)
