Just before I settle into an all night movie watching bash, I think it good to reflrect on some of the best horror movies of all. To make my list they have to be the scariest or at least in the best tradition of what a horror movie should be. Some of these movies did not out right scare me but put me on edge for some time to follow. Keep in mind that some of these while not explicitly scary just seem to exemplify what a horror movie should be.
3. Night of the Living Dead
4. Halloween Part 2
5. Friday the 13th
6. The Ring (when seen in the movie theater)
7. The Changling
8. Silver Bullet
9. The Omen
10. Texas Chainsaw Masacre (the orginal)
There are many movies that easily rival the bottom half of the list and I could be swayed to rearrange some of them. I have to add that these movies also deserving mentioning as scaring me at the time I watched them include: Silence of the Lambs, Pet Cemetery, Blair Witch Project, Event Horizon, and many others.
