Hey everyone! Halloween is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate it for a film geek than make a list of the top 100 horror films of all time. Hitfix took a poll, asking some of the greatest horror actors, writers and directors of the last half century what their favorite horror films were. People like John Carpenter (Director of Halloween, The Thing and Prince of Darkness), Clive Barker (Creator of the Hellraiser franchise), Drew Goddard (Co-Writer and Director of Cabin in the Woods) and Edgar Wright (Writer/Director of Shaun of the Dead) are just a few of the people that took part in this poll.The list does have a few surprises, but the top ten are pretty close to exactly what you would expect: 

10) Jaws (1975)



9) Night of the Living Dead (1968)

8) Psycho (1960)

7) Halloween (1978)

6) The Thing (1982)

5) Alien (1979)

4) Rosemary's Baby (1968)

3) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

2) The Shining (1980)

1) The Exorcist (1973)


Check out Hitfix.com for the rest of the Top 100 and see if you feel like some are either too high or too low on the list! Let us know some of your favorite horror movies in the comments. PS: My favorite horror movie, Session 9, came in at #84, so what the heck do I know.
