The Best Horror Movies Of All Time (100+ Movies!)

Oct 15, 2019

You asked. And I am here to provide some spook!

Horror movies are my thing. I watch them every week, now daily since October began. Some new, some old, some habitually replayed. And I want to share the breadth of my horror movie knowledge so you can have a fantastically spooky Halloween season!

Because I've seen so many over my lifetime, this post is going to be a list. That's it. I have far too many titles to share and I'd probably make your browser crash with the length of it if I rambled about each one (but you can totally ask about any if you want!).

I suggest bookmarking this list to keep track. I'll actually update it as I watch and discover new favorites, so keep your eyes on that!

Below is my giant list of recommendations with sub-genre categories. If you're into psychological thrillers or slashers, you can find your pick easily. I'm also going to add in "cheese alerts" - you'll see what I mean, read on. Heck, I'll even throw in some bold titles to let you know I favor those in particular.

Don't come at me: Disclaimer! Every genre has bad movies! Horror can especially have some. Not every title on this list is a cinematic masterpiece with A+ performances. Some listed are cheesy, but I still enjoy them as a horror fan. And I'm not listing every movie I've ever seen, it's just the ones I like. (additional disclaimer: there are no vampire horrors here. I don't like vampire horrors. DON'T COME AT ME.)
