De Nederlandse fans hebben gesproken. Wat is de beste horror-, sciencefiction-, fantasy- of cultfilm aller tijden? Schokkend Nieuws deed ter gelegenheid van zijn honderdste editie een oproep aan lezers, fans en collega-filmjournalisten een lijstje samen te stellen met de tien beste genrefilms aller tijden. De oproep leverde maar liefst 719 verschillende titels op. De honderd beste films staan afgedrukt in de 100e editie van de tweemaandelijkse filmglossy (IMDb List: http://goo.gl/vsKfJ).
Criteria: - This list includes films that contain 'unreal' earthly (or heavenly) locations, 'supernatural' human powers (Superheros), and 'supernatural' entities (angels, wizards, ghosts, dragons, witches...) This list does NOT include Horror-Fantasy, or Science Fiction-Fantasy. These films were NOT chosen for how highly rated they are overall, but how they rate in the subject of "Fantasy Movie".
Fantasporto, also known as Fantas, is an international film festival, annually organized since 1981 in Porto, Portugal.

This extensive appendix in Nicholl's book lists 700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films,1902-1983. Note that it is not a 'best of' list. While some films are must-see classics, others are z-grade junk - there's even a few TV-movies in the mix. Nicholls may be academic but he's no snob - like Danny Peary, he believes in seeing all types of movies.
Most of these appended films are reviewed in capsules (the others have already been discussed in more detail in the main body of the book). He gives titles a dual rating, one for quality (stars) and another for squeamishness (skulls).
Interestingly, Nicholls embraces a broad range of movies in his critique, including the James Bond series (because of its sci-fi overtones with gadgetry, supervillians, etc) and films with a surreal, psychological, or dreamlike approach. You'd have to be a true film fan to watch the wide range of titles here - everything from Monty Python and the Muppets to Russian silent films and Italian zombie gore.
A statistical survey that includes data from noted critics and popular polls. To qualify, a movie or series has to be generally regarded as fantasy by credible sources and/or recognized as having historical significance to the development of the genre. For statistical purposes films in a series are treated in tallies as stand-alones. Exception to this rule include film series that generally maintained consistent quality throughout.

Based on data gathered from a statistical survey and a direct poll of fantasy television experts - including critics, editors and website managers. Shows often classified under other genres but containing significant and notable fantasy content (e.g. The Avengers & The Wild, Wild West) qualify for inclusion on the list. (Updated 16 July 2011)
