The list author says: "I made this list for people who have discovered a passion (as I have) for scary movies. I carefully compiled list of the 20 scariest, bloodiest, darkest, creepiest, and funnest movies of all time. These are the best horror movies ever made. It considered their value in: terror, influence, longevity, and contemporary appeal. I also tried to represent each of the horror film sub-catagories: Slasher, Monster, Classic, Zombie or Undead, Demon or Ant-Christ, Foreign (Asian), Haunted House, Science-Fiction Horror, Comedy, etc."
"The love child of one of the most talented and controversial directors and one of the scariest authors of all time. Kubrick went to great lengths to scare, and he did so VERY well. This movie will scare even the most desensitized crowds."
"You can critisize me for putting this movie this high on my list but this movie is awesome. Maybe overlooked by some, but very memorable for the rest of us. The movie makes you uncomfortable by taking you into deep, claustrophobic spaces and then scares the *%^$ out of you. The scariest movie in recent memory."
"The "Saw" series is the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series of this generation. Full of disgusting, disturbing, gory, and terrifying images. Genuinely scary. A couple of the sequels are worth something (inorder of vaule: 1,3,2,6,3D,5,4)."
"Might haunt you more than you wish. A relaxed paced eerie film until... well... it isn't. You wonder where it's going, and then it gets you in only a few climatic moments. A Japanese horror masterpiece which - fortunately - does not have a disappointing american remake."
"The Koreans have shown their competency for horror making with Bloody Reunion. You might not have heard of it, and it's definitely worth your time. See it before a cheap American movie-maker remakes, and ruins it."
