As some people are aware, horror is the greatest genre ever and there is literally nothing better than a good horror film. It is, however, extremely under-appreciated and that means a lot of sifting to find the awesome stuff.

So, this is my personal list of the 'best' horror films that I've seen. This mostly consists of personal favourites, but also others which I didn't LOVE, but are good examples of what I like about horror, offer something to the genre or that I just think are kinda cool (mostly the latter). I've not included anything that I don't like at all though, so there may be some glaringly obvious omissions, but it's probably on purpose.

Sorted chronologically.
