It's so hard for me to come up with a "Top n" list because I need to know exactly what the parameters are.

It could mean...

The 25 "Best" Horror Movies of All Time

This list, however, is too debatable, so I'll leave it to film historians.

Instead I could do...

My Top 25 "Favorite" Horror Movies of All Time

This list might include:

- Halloween
- Donnie Darko
- Signs
- The Descent
- The Blair Witch Project
- Night of the Living Dead

However, since I would have to pine hard over this list, aching over which movies make it and which are left out, I might never feel good enough to actually finish it. So instead, it might be easier to do...

The Top 25 Movies Most Influential on My Horror Fansmanship

Which would include:

- Water Babies
- The Watcher in the Woods
- Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
- Something Wicked This Way Comes
- Poltergeist
- The Birds
- Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Alien
- Burnt Offerings
- The Exorcist
- Carrie

In the end though, it's easier to list only the movies that occupy my current consciousness. Those that, right now, haunt the dark corridors of my home, each summoning me to rewatch it again. And again...and again...

My Favorite 25 Horror Movies Right at this Moment
