My Top 10 Horror Movies Of All Time

In honor of Halloween, here is my Top 10 all time favorite horror/thriller movies.

10. The Ring (2002) The American remake with Naomi Watts. Creepy as all get out.

9. Alien (1979) Perfect melding of horror and sci-fi. The film that introduced us to Sigourney Weaver.

8. Scream (1996) Cool homage to all the slasher flicks before it.

7. Halloween (1978) Yep, the original that made Jamie Lee a star and showed us how trick and treating could be dangerous.

6. Psycho (1960) One of Hitchcock's later and best efforts.

5. The Thing (1982) The second John Carpenter film on the list, the other being Halloween. The Thing is a super gory monster mash of an alien loose at a science base in Antarctica. Cool.

4. The Exorcist (1973) Maybe hard to take at times, but still an effective thriller.

3. The Silence Of The Lambs (1991) Jodie Foster as FBI Agent Clarice Starling and Anthony Hopkins as serial killer Hannibal Lecter. Nuff said.

2. Seven (1995) Just as good as Lambs, kinda hard for me to place one head of the other but for now, it's no 2.

and my no 1 all time favorite horror's more of a thriller but it's awesome either way you look at....

1. JAWS (1975)

Runner-ups include The Descent(2006), The Innocents(1961), Rear Window(1955), Horror of Dracula(1958), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) and more....

I could probably do another list with pre 1960 movies but for now this is it.

Great list! Almost all of your movies made my list as well. I can totally see why you chose Jaws as your favorite... it is so good and such a classic. I'm glad you put The Ring on the list too. That movie is scared the bejesus out of my when I first saw it.
