Everyone loves a top 10 list. Remember “The Book of Lists”? For better or worse, I’ve decided to roll-out a new series of “Top 10s” on this site. I’ve taken away all the agony of making these stressful determinations based on countless hours of research and googling.
So now I present the first of the series. This is, of course, the undisputed top ten horror movies of all-time.
It’s based on decades of first-hand viewing experience, and even in some cases, in-depth research and reading (i.e. the Grimm brothers references in Italian horror giallo cinema… and to those who know what I’m talking about, count yourselves accomplished Argento gurus!).
