Favorite horror directors?

Who are your favorite horror directors?

For me I must say that it includes David Cronenberg, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, James Wan, Alfred Hitchcock, Rob Zombie, George A. Romero, Sam Raimi, Eli Roth, and Adam Green. I'm probably forgetting some right now.

James Wan is one of the best right now.

John Carpenter is a legend.

Wes Craven is another legend. RIP Wes!!

Kim Ji Woon directed two of my favourites A Tale of Two Sisters and sorta horror but mostly thriller I Saw The Devil.

Adam Wingard who directed Blair Witch, The Guest and You're Next.

David Cronenberg is also excellent.

There's quite a few who have made just one horror movie but are very promising like Robert Eggers who directed The Witch.

I really wish more high profile filmmakers dabbled more in horror!

A lot of amazing names already tossed out there!

I would add Tobe Hooper. Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Eaten Alive, Life Force, Poltergeist, Salems Lot, Toolbox Murders (2004)...and more.
I'm also a huge fan of German filmmaker Jorg Buttgereit. He's responsible for some classic stuff, like Nekromantik, Der Todesking and Schramm.
Going way back, Tod Browning made some of the most unforgetable Horror movies. Dracula alone would make him an all time great, but his catalogue is impressive.
A couple of modern movie makers I have high hopes for are Lucky McKee and Ti West.

And don't forget some of the folks who made great schlock! No list of my favorite Directors would be complete without mentioning Herschel Gordon Lewis, Ed Wood, William Girdler and Jeff Lieberman!

I completely forgot about Lucky McKee and Ti West.
I loved House of the Devil by West and The Woman and May from Lucky McKee.

McKee also directed the episode Sick Girl of Masters of Horror. One of the first episodes of that show I watched.

Also, let's have a shout out to Takashi Miike. Audition, Imprint (Another Master of Horror episode), One Missed Call, Over Your Dead Body.
A prolific and awesome filmmaker who did a lot of different types of movies.

Good call on Miike! Love his work. Visitor Q and Audition have to be my favorites, With Ichi The Killer not far behind.
