Filmmakers have continued to push boundaries and find new innovative ways to rattle audiences throughout the years – inciting emotions of fear, disgust and terror. What is considered to be a horror film has varied from decade to decade. These days, the term is usually applied to films which display more explicit gore, jump scares or supernatural content, whereas early horror movies were largely based on classic Gothic literature such as Dracula and Frankenstein. Choosing my favourite horror films of all time is like choosing between my children – not that I have children, but if I did, I am sure I would categorize them quite like my DVD collection. The hardest part of making a list like this is choosing what movies should be eligible. Although a good deal of the films listed are about the supernatural, others focus more on serial killers, surrealism, nightmares, hidden fears, a disease, a virus outbreak and so much more. The films range from rape and revenge to creature features to horror/comedies, ghosts, possession and so on. In other words, this isn’t your standard list.

As with all lists, this is personal and nobody will agree with every choice – and if you do, that would be incredibly disturbing. It was almost impossible for me to rank them in order, but I tried and eventually gave up.
