I have seen an inordinate amount of horror movies, but most of them are from the late 80s and earlier. Over the years since, I’ve slowly tried to catch up, but never can.

Below you’ll find two lists. The first is an unsorted list of some of my favorite horror movies. The second is my short list of what I still want to see.

What am I missing?

Note, I didn’t include some great movies because they simply weren’t scary. Cabin in the Woods, for instance, strikes me as something closer to action fantasy then horror.

Pan’s Labyrinth
Evil Dead
