In honor of Horrormonal’s first anniversary and the catharsis and opportunities it has given me within the last year, along with the conversations it has started with other horror film lovers, I give you 60 of (some) of the greatest horror films of all time, starting with the 1960s until the 2010s (so far).  I’ve been musing over this since August, and I’ve had such a difficult time narrowing it down to just 10 movies from each decade, but I think I chose pretty carefully.  I love each film for different reasons- some for their artistic integrity, some for their metaphors, some for changing the way I look at cinematic arts entirely, some for haunting my nightmares, some for repulsing me, and others for their entertainment value.  If you haven’t seen some of the more obscure picks, please consider checking them out, and be sure to revisit some old classics you may not have viewed in a long time.  (Thank you to Collider.com for some guidance.)

Here are 60 of (some) of the greatest horror films of modern times…

Garance Marillier in Raw (Petit Film)

As much as a small part of me cringes when I hear a new horror film being described as an “art horror” (a little pretentious), I usually tend to agree that these films- including The Babadook and It Follows- are pretty damn good pieces of cinema.  2016’s Raw is no different.  I’ve been searching for Raw for some time now, and since its recent release on Netflix, I finally got a chance to see what all the fuss was about myself… Continue reading
