The 1st edition of this list is now live! The list will now remain frozen in its current position until the next update (hopefully in a year). I've also created an accompanying website similar to the TSPDT site, with reviews/screenshots/info: Note that the 21st Century List is not yet completed, so it's blank for now.

For further films in the list please see this list: or download the spreadsheet with all 5,247 nominated films from the website!

This list is compiled using 800 other horror lists, so there can't be any better horror lists ever made, no one can argue on that. Make this the official horror list Asap! Great work mightysparks!

Make it a top 500 list. If you include obvious non-horror movies such as A Clockwork Orange, Requiem for a Dream, Ghost Busters (come on, really) and Come and See that means you are stretching it.

Can't help but notice how pathetic the recent update is: Insidious 2? Jennifer's Body? Fucked up remakes? Seriously, is this a horror list or a delusional epitome of C-grade, utterly forgettable flicks?

I mean, what was the problem exactly with Top 500 Horror films? Not enough anglophone crap to suggest?

This list does a marvelous job of showing that horror fanatics not only have bad taste in movies, but even have bad taste within their own genre.

It seems telling that so many of the source lists that fed this compendium are tiny lists of less than 20 titles. Lightweights with no breadth or perspective. The ultimate case of "too many cooks."

A whopping 496 of these films do not appear on any other official list. What does this tell you about their overall reputation?

Great list, and great website as well. I always make an effort to check out horror lists on ICM, and I think this is the most definitive. I however think you should stop the inclusion of personal lists. Even if they are weighted very very lowly, I think it ruins the integrity a bit. Just my opinion however, hope to see you keep up the work! thanks

Great freaking list. As far as I'm concerned this is the de facto horror list on this site. Thanks for the hard work!

I <3 this list--and greatly appreciate the undertaking. It's not trivial to rank Dracula, 1931 (weak but famous) alongside Freaks, 1933 (an older unknown gem) and Martyrs, 2008 (extreme but powerful). This list, imho, strikes a good balance for the 358/1000 I've seen.

The list of sources is here:

I am sort of getting to the point where I'm not bothered if all personal lists get included though, because horror is just that kind of genre. Plus I do find the mix of films to be more interesting and to reach more corners of the 'horror globe' than if it was purely lists from critics and such (who don't really explore horror). I have been experimenting with including/excluding some personal lists and tbh, the list is a lot stronger with them included.

Just wanted to say this list is great and keep up the good work! I feel like of all the horror lists on this site, this one has the chance at being the most definitive.

I've been working to compile lists in my own Movie Collector database. But I am floored by how many lists you've incorporated and the killer formatting. Greatest project ever. Just scanning through at first pass, I can see the lists is absolutely perfect. So many films I've run into in my research as well. Thank you for all the hard work.

Thanks for the update! I like the list, although there are some good ones missing that came out over the last year.
