This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
The independent movie studio HIDDEN HORIZONS count down their Top 666 Horror Movies of all time.
The films listed are all based on at least 1 of 3 things; importance to the genre, scariness, and just being a straight up good movie. The list will change as new horror titles are released and older horror titles are rediscovered/reexamined.
The list is in descending order from best to least best.
Feel free to comment! Every piece of input will be carefully examined.
DETAILS ON THE SELECTIONS:
-The list ranges from 1896 to Present Day.
-Movies are full length unless a "short" has proven to be historically important and/or groundbreaking to the genre (Return of Glennascaul, Le Manoir Du Diable, etc.).
-TV movies and mini-series are only included if they are significant pieces to the genre (IT, Bad Ronald, etc.).
-Horror-Comedy is included without question if the horror genre stands out more (Return of the Living Dead, Evil Dead, etc.). In rare cases a comedy with horrific elements will be included as long as the movie is incredibly important within the horror genre (The Ghost Breakers, House of Frankenstein, etc.).
-SciFi-Horror is included as long as a legitimate amount of horror is displayed through the SciFi (The Thing, Invaders From Mars, etc.). The SciFi films that mix mainly with the drama genre (2001: A Space Odyssey, Metropolis, etc.) and the action genre (War of the Worlds, Independence Day, etc.) are not included.
-Thriller/Crime films that contain dark elements (Body Heat, M, etc.) are not included. Thriller/Crime films that are primarily based upon the psychological horror genre (Silence of the Lambs, Hard Candy, Se7en, etc.) are included.
-Mysteries are only included if they consistently flirt with a supernatural theme and/or deliver a consistent feeling of dread (And Then There Were None, The Hounds of Baskervilles, etc.).
-Action/Exploitation films with an incredible amount of violence/gore (Toxic Avenger, Hobo with a Shotgun, etc.) are not included.
-Fantasy movies with enough horrific elements to border on horror (Pan's Labyrinth, La Belle et la Bete, etc.) are included. Fantasy movies with just a few scary elements/scenes (Return to Oz, It's a Wonderful Life, etc.) are not included.
-Surrealistic/Experimental Horror is included as long as horror genre still stands out (Begotten, Santa Sangre, etc.). Surrealistic/Experimental films with just brief moments of horror (Un Chien Andalou, The Holy Mountain, etc.) are not included.
-Giallos are included
-Animation is included
Beyond that enjoy!

A list for the die-hard western fan! This long and diverse list of great western movies is largely derived from a list found on Cinemacom.com entitled "500 & More - A Western Lover's List". However, Cinemacom's list is heavily slanted toward the traditional western and admittedly excludes all western comedies and many good spaghetti westerns. I wanted to create a more balanced list and so I cross referenced Cinemacom's list against IMDB user ratings in the western genre and made some thoughtful modifications which add some diversity. If you love westerns I hope this list will help you explore the genre.
In October 2013, the British Film Institute unveiled an exhibition chronicling the history of dark and macabre films. In an ambitious project, the BFI unveiled a collection of a large number of films spanning four categories, bringing these films to British cinemas over a four month period.
Films are arranged chronologically by theme.
The Four Parts:
- Monstrous (1-26)
- The Dark Arts (27-48)
- Haunted (49-71)
- Love is a Devil (72-99)
Although this exhibition includes a large number of plays, professional talks, documentaries, television series' and shorts, this list contains only the feature films presented in the exhibition.
From the book by Leger Grindon (2011). The filmography is arranged by a chronological progression of themes:
Transition to Sound (1930-1933)
World war II and the Homefront (1942-1946)
Post-War: Melancholy and Reconciliation (1947-1953)
The Comedies of Seduction: The Playboy, the Gold Digger, and the Virgin (1953-1966)
The transition through the counter-culture (1967-1976)
Nervous Romance (1977-1987)
Reaffirmation of Romance (1986-1996)
Grotesque and Ambivalent (1997-present)
Hyperlink cinema is a term coined by author Alissa Quart, who used the term in her review of the film Happy Endings (2005) for the film journal Film Comment in 2005. Film critic Roger Ebert popularized the term when reviewing the film Syriana in 2005.
These films are not hypermedia and do not have actual hyperlinks, but are multilinear in a more metaphorical sense. Playing with time and characters personal history, plot twists, interwoven storylines between multiple characters, jumping between the beginning and end (flashback and flashforward) are also elements.
