Top 100 Horror Films

3 Vote Winners

The Top 100 Films of Horror as voted in by the readership, hopefully you will be happy with the results of our Top Horror List!


Scream 1996

Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts – but the victims aren’t always the ones you’d expect.


The Cabin in the Woods 2012

When five college friends (Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams) arrive at a remote forest cabin for a little vacation, little do they expect the horrors that await them. One by one, the youths fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is another factor at play. Two scientists (Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford) are manipulating the ghoulish goings-on, but even as the body count rises, there is yet more at work than meets the eye.


Basketcase 1982

A grotesquely deformed Siamese twin joins forces with his brother to stalk the physician who separated them at birth.


The Reef 2010

A sailing trip becomes a disaster for a group of friends when the boat sinks and a white shark hunts the helpless passengers.


Dracula 1993

Count Dracula, a 15th-century prince, is condemned to live off the blood of the living for eternity. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker is sent to Dracula’s castle to finalise a land deal, but when the Count sees a photo of Harker’s fiancée, Mina, the spitting image of his dead wife, he imprisons him and sets off for London to track her down.


From Dusk to Dawn 1996

On the run from a bank robbery that left several police officers dead, Seth Gecko (George Clooney) and his paranoid, loose-cannon brother, Richard (Quentin Tarantino), hightail it to the Mexican border. Kidnapping preacher Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel) and his kids, the criminals sneak across the border in the family’s RV and hole up in a topless bar. Unfortunately, the bar also happens to be home base for a gang of vampires, and the brothers and their hostages have to fight their way out.


The Aboninable Dr. Phibes 1971

In a desperate attempt to reach his ill wife, organist Anton Phibes (Vincent Price) is horrifically disfigured in a car accident and presumed dead. When he learns that his wife died during an operation, Phibes blames her surgeons and plots an elaborate revenge to punish them for their incompetence. With the help of a mute assistant (Virginia North), Phibes creates a mask resembling his own face and murders the surgeons one by one using bizarre methods inspired by the biblical plagues.


The Grudge 2004

Matthew Williams (William Mapother), his wife, Jennifer (Clea DuVall), and mother, Emma (Grace Zabriskie), are Americans making a new life in Tokyo. Together they move into a house that has been the site of supernatural occurrences in the past, and it isn’t long before their new home begins terrorizing the Williams family as well. The house, as it turns out, is the site of a curse that lingers in a specific place and claims the lives of anyone that comes near.


Creepshow 1982

A compendium of five short but terrifying tales contained within a single full-length feature, this film conjures scares from traditional bogeymen and portents of doom. In one story, a monster escapes from its holding cell. Another focuses on a husband (Leslie Nielsen) with a creative way of getting back at his cheating wife. Other stories concern a rural man (Stephen King) and a visitor from outer space, and a homeowner (E.G. Marshall) with huge bug problems and a boozing corpse.


Warlock 1989

In 17th-century New England, witch hunter Giles Redferne (Richard E. Grant) captures an evil warlock (Julian Sands), but the conjurer eludes death with supernatural help. Flung into the future, the warlock winds up in the 1980s and plans to bring about the end of the world. Redferne follows the enchanter into the modern era and continues his mission, but runs into trouble in such unfamiliar surroundings. With the help of a young woman (Lori Singer), can Redferne finally defeat the warlock?


Carrie 2013

High school can be tough for many teenagers, but for Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), it’s especially hellish. A shy and awkward teen being raised by a religious zealot (Julianne Moore), Carrie is frequently the target of bullies. But Carrie has a secret talent: She can make things move with her mind. One fateful night, an especially cruel prank at her senior prom pushes her over the edge, and Carrie unleashes her telekinetic powers on all who get in her way.

  1. I am not sure what the difference is but I almost NEVER see the movie, even though I HAVE read the books. Be it ‘The Exorcist’, or ‘It’ (either version), I may have read about it, but can’t even ENVISAGE watching it…😳😳😳

    1. A lot of people don’t watch the mivies themselves Patti – many prefer to only read the books 🙂

      With the book, you are left with your own imagination and scare scale, with a film, that is taken out of your hands, the music alone puts many people off from some of the films 🙂

      1. Oh, indeed! After watching the FIRST Amityville Horror in the 70s, I never saw another horror film until The Sixth Sense, which I watched with my sister and brother-in-law. When that first ghost walked by the kitchen with the corresponding ‘thump’ of heart-stoppingly scary music, I literally FLEW through the air, into my sister’s lap 😂😂😂

  2. Naturally biased, I can’t believe some of these made it so low on the 100 list. I should have been pro-active and campaigned for certain movies. LOL! On the plus side a couple of these I haven’t seen yet and now will have to check out.

    1. Hey Jane, l agree with you, but from what l have seen before, these votes always go in a different direction than we think. I have voted in these things before and with much higher numbers present, and some films deserve to be higher up, and then you see that a nobody has walked in and stolen the show.

      I think when the voting originally took place, some people only voted for specifics that they liked and what should have happened, is they should have voted for all the films they liked, and the ratios of percentage would have been slightly higher.

      I would have expected Dracula to be higher on the list than just 96and yet it only received three overall votes, but a lot of the films only just got in on the ‘3’ vote mark 🙂

      1. Dracula was one I was definitely having expected. I know I dropped the ball on coming back to vote for more, but yeah that one was definitely a surprise to me.

        1. Yes of this first line up, l was also surprised, but of the 100 films that will be displayed 52 of them received three votes each, so l guarantee a few more surprises by the end of this week 🙂
