  1. Netflix movies (USA)'s icon

    Netflix movies (USA)

    Favs/dislikes: 63:3. There are already several lists on iCheckMovies of films available on Netflix. Unfortunately they have a tendency to be incomplete and quickly become out of date. This is an attempt to make a more comprehensive and semi-automated version. A program scrapes data from instantwatcher.com of everything available on Netflix, and then cross-references the title and year against a list of films that meet a set of criteria for notability or interest (including every movie that is an official check). Titles that are official checks are listed first. IMPORTANT NOTE: I am no longer able to scrape the website I was getting the data from. I am trying to find a solution, but the list is not currently being updated.
  2. Tim Wambolt's Goriest Movies Ever Made's icon

    Tim Wambolt's Goriest Movies Ever Made

    Favs/dislikes: 52:1. The personal choices of Tim Wambolt for the goriest movies ever made, as seen on the now-defunct Running with Scissors website. Tim Wambolt's current lists are found on his website at [url=http://www.goryvideogames.com/]http://www.goryvideogames.com/[/url], but this list is currently based on the original Running with Scissors list which included hundreds of honorable mentions. The list is ordered by amount of gore, and everything after 97 should only be considered an "honorable mention". This list is currently incomplete due to IMDb not having listings for some of the short films and more obscure titles. Movies Missing: 76 Chunk Blower 81 A Thousand and One Nights 89 Meatday (aka Vleesdag) 114 Vadias Do Sexo Sangrento 163 Splattenstein 175 Chainsaw Scumfuck 228 El Trivial Exterminador 2 231 Litio 256 Girl and the Wooden Horse Torture 274 Splattenstein Death Camp 288 El Trivial Exterminador 348 Photomation 360 Photomation: The Avenger 398 Samhain: Night Feast
  3. Time Out's best horror films's icon

    Time Out's best horror films

    Favs/dislikes: 47:1. Time Out proudly presents the 100 best horror movies, as chosen by those who write in, direct, star in and celebrate the genre. Time Out polled well over 100 horror enthusiasts – including big names like Roger Corman, Guillermo del Toro, Simon Pegg, Clive Barker and Alice Cooper, and horror legends like Coffin Joe, Kim Newman and Tom Six – and came up with a definitive top 100 list. The list was first produced in 2012. The list was revised in 2016 with the inclusion of new voters, including Stephen King. After the top 100 I have included the runners up: every film nominated by the contributers.

  5. Hidden gem Horror-only nominations's icon

    Favs/dislikes: 28:1. This is a list of every film voted for in the iCM 500<400 poll that is tagged as being in the horror genre on IMDb (genre tags are subject to change and the whims of IMDb users). It is ranked by number of points it received in the poll. 1-19 were top 500 and in the official list, 20-39 were in the 500-1000 range, 40-101 were in the 1001-2000 range, 102-296 were in the 2001-5000 range.

They’re guilty.

Published in the May/June 1998 edition of Film Comment.

This category was awarded from 1948-1968, after which it was dropped and reintroduced in 1993 as the "Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film". It was renamed "Outstanding British Film" in 2010.

  12. Films101's Top 1000's icon

    Films101's Top 1000

    Favs/dislikes: 13:2. The top 1000 ranked films from the Films101 website. Their description: The bulk of the Films101 database comes from all-time best movie lists and movie awards. Best Picture and Foreign Language Film nominees are included, many of which have been forgotten, but now are easy to find through the many browsing options. New movie releases are added when picked by selected critics. The films are ranked in order of acclaim among film professionals, using proprietary formulas. Films101 doesn't believe the exact ranking of films and filmmakers should be taken too seriously. However, approximate rankings are taken very seriously as an alternative to alphabetical or chronological listings for film research.
  13. 1001 Movies That Shocked the World: A Chronology of Cult, Horror and Banned Films's icon

    1001 Movies That Shocked the World: A Chronology of Cult, Horror and Banned Films

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. Movies reviewed in the book by Vincent Kapner. From the birth of horror cinema, The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots (1895) to Dante's Inferno (1911) and all the way through cinema's history to Raw (2017) and Wolves at the Door (2018), 1001 MOVIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD explores over a century of horror, cult and banned films. This extensive guide is replete with over 1000 entries, featuring choice cuts from every sub-genre imaginable in a movie jungle teeming with classics and lesser-known items of interest. Horror connoisseur, Vincent Kapner, serves as the Virgil to your Dante as he guides you through the infernal picture house of the most controversial, shocking and disturbing movies ever made. Overflowing with trivia and background information, as well as synopses, critical opinion and censorship information, 1001 MOVIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD is an indispensable addition to any film fan's book shelf. So, if you're an unrepentant cinematic sinner, why not take the plunge and visit the Seven Circles of Movie Hell. Not only will you find yourself in good company, but you'll also be introduced to dozens – if not hundreds – of strange and terrifying cine-lifeforms that had previously escaped your notice. The following films are not on IMDb: Abnormal: The Sinema of Nick Zedd (1980) Captain's Pride, Volume 33 (2009?) Do's Final Exit (1997) Planetary Evacuation Recruitment Tape (1996) War of the Worlds (1938)

  18. Bad Cinema Society's "The Worst Films of the 20th Century" 's icon

    Bad Cinema Society's "The Worst Films of the 20th Century"

    Favs/dislikes: 7:8. The Hastings Bad Cinema Society's Poll of the worst movies of the 20th century (in alphabetical order). Their website is now sadly defunct but the list is present on several list sites on the web, and the original is accessible using the Wayback Machine Archive. The poll's introduction reads: On June 16, 1998, the American Film Institute announced its choices for the 100 greatest films ever made. The group called its list 100 Years, 100 Movies. To no one’s surprise, just about everybody in America disagreed with the titles on the list. Anybody can make a list of great movies. We [The Bad Cinema Society] thought it would be helpful if a group had the guts to put together a list of the all-time worst films. So, about a month after the AFI announcement, the Hastings Bad Cinema Society announced that it too would be making an "end of the century" list, but the 100 movies it planned to "honor" would all be stinkers.

    Netflix movies (UK)

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. There are already several lists on iCheckMovies of films available on Netflix. Unfortunately they have a tendency to be incomplete and quickly become out of date. This is an attempt to make a more comprehensive and semi-automated version. A program scrapes data from instantwatcher.com of everything available on Netflix, and then cross-references the title and year against a list of films that meet a set of criteria for notability or interest (including every movie that is an official check). I will try to update the list every month or two.

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0.

Here below the reflections of past masters jostle with bold experiments from new voices – capped by a triumphant top movie that finds its British female director both looking back and moving forward. In our January 2020 issue we spotlight some of the themes and stories that have defined the cinema of 2019 – from post-#MeToo movies to the fortunes of the European arthouse, as well as expanded cinema and a countdown of the best TV of the year.

All the films mentioned in the book [url=https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Horror_Film.html?id=Q2WkDAEACAAJ&redir_esc=y]Horror Film: A Critical Introduction[/url] by Murray Leeder. [quote]Throughout the history of cinema, horror has proven to be a genre of consistent popularity, which adapts to different cultural contexts while retaining a recognizable core. Horror Film: A Critical Introduction, the newest in Bloomsbury's Film Genre series, balances the discussions of horror's history, theory, and aesthetics as no introductory book ever has. Featuring studies of films both obscure and famous, Horror Film is international in its scope and chronicles horror from its silent roots until today. As a straightforward and convenient critical introduction to the history and key academic approaches, this book is accessible to the beginner but still of interest to the expert.[/quote]
