From Edgar Wright:

“Here, for Halloween, is a chronological list of my favorite horror movies. It’s not in any way an official best of list and merely represents my tastes at the moment. So if you feel something is missing – MAKE YOUR OWN LIST.

To be honest it was very tough to whittle down to 100 and thus a lot of ’thrillers’ that I love did not make it – Se7en, The Vanishing, Manhunter, Silence Of The Lambs, as well as some science fiction films and allegorical movies (the fantastic ’Spirit Of The Beehive.’ ) But rest assured you can find them all on my 1000 (!) fav movies list.

Either way, there’s lots to enjoy on this list of 100 bloody great horrors from all over the world. Enjoy.”

Edgar Wright, October 2017
