My favorite horror movies year by year; 1972-2009. I wanted to have a top 5 for each year, but found that too difficult so I'll be combining years sometimes so the films I list will be somewhere between 5-10.

Okay, this is 1972-73 (in no particular order):

The Other
Tales FromThe Crypt
Vault Of Horror
Sisters
The Exorcist
The Wicker Man

What are your favorites from 1972-73?

I can see another 100 list, the best film in each individual year since 1910!



I would agree with The Exorcist & The Wicker Man, would throw in Last House on the Left for 1972. Haven't seen The Other but think I would like to.

That sounds like a great idea; hopefully the mods will do that someday.

I enjoyed Last House On The Left as well; super creepy Krug!http://www.houseofhorrors.com/crypt/pages2/uploads/1/last_house_on_the_left_ss_krug_and_posse.jpg

That would be because Terror Toons is a very poor horror comedy and is not shown on television as far as I know,But it is a movie that is very bizarre and rattles the brain,and I dont recommend it unless you like staying up all night wondering what the F it is about and having messed up dreams later!Also the only place I found it was at Block Buster!

Sorry to jump around, but I recall being oddly impressed with 2007 Year in Horror.

Started a thread about it:

http://horror.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32979

Chronogrl's Top 10 Horror movies of 2007 (in no particular order):

* Bug
* 28 Weeks Later
* Crazy Eights <- (After Dark Film Fest Flic)
* Borderland <- (After Dark Film Fest Flic)
* Mulberry Street <- (After Dark Film Fest Flic)
* Fido
* Planet Terror
* The Host
* Severance
* Murder Party


I would recommend for any horror fan who has not seen these movies: Go see these movies.

The following films certainly deserve honorable mentions. While they did not make my top 10 horror list of the year, I recognize their importance in keeping the genre fresh, new, and inciteful.

Honorable Mentions:

* Hatchet
* Behind the Mask
* Black Sheep
* Sunshine
* Death Proof


Even the Blockbusters were worthy of note last year. While I was hugely disappointed with all other summer Blockbusters (as I have already ranted about), I thought it was an outstanding year for Horror Blockbusters.

NOTE: The "Blockbusters" certainly weren't my favorite horror movies of the year (save "Sweeney Todd," which I have a HUGE weak spot for). I am not a huge fan of Hostel II, Saw IV, or Halloween, but I recognize their popularity within the horror community and would be ignorant if I completely omitted them from this list. And while yes, the argument can be that remakes and sequels do nothing but to tread ground, well, that's part of what makes this genre in the first place (think the Halloween, Friday 13th, Nightmare, Candyman, etc. franchises); these films are but following in their footsteps (be that good or bad) to keep that element of the horror genre alive.

Blockbusters:

* Hostel II
* Saw IV
* Halloween
* 30 Days of Night
* Sweeney Todd
* I Am Legend
* The Mist


Err this is far too difficult I'm just bumping it back up in praise of some of the recommendations :) have to see And Soon The Darkness and I sell the dead :)

Going to be honest with you - I was REALLY disappointed with I Sell the Dead. I thought it was trying too hard.

28 weeks Later
Planet Terror
The Host
Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon
Black Sheep
Death Proof
Sweeney Todd
The Mist
The Orphanage
1408
Pan's Labyrinth

and I'll add:

Joshua (the Sam Rockwell, Vera Farmiga bad seed movie)
Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door

Seen most of those wickerfan great recommendations. I'll have to see death proof and planet terror.

I think I'll put I sell the dead on ice for a bit cause I'm dubious about it. It sounds very familiar from its plot.

I didn't like The Host I thought it was a waste of time really but I can see why some people like it.

I like Mac's idea...but the first few decades may give us a hard time.

To avoid any confusion regarding the participants or voters, I think this time we can go for some selective opinions or just throw a deadline & ask for a list of "100 horror films of last 100 years--the best film in each individual year since 1910"...then whoever wants to vote or contribute he/she can send the list to someone who later compile a final one based on those whatever no. of votes or suggestions we get at the end.

03-27-2011, 03:57 AM
I'm okay with any setup.

I would like to see that best films of the decade list on display. If all the information is on the Team Zero and Team Newb threads, it looked like most of the work had been done. Roshiq pointed out a few errors, but with a little proof reading it could be polished quickly.
