My IMDb horror lists includes The Phantom Carriage, Targets, Poison, Hocus Pocus, Nightmares in Red, White and Blue, and Cropsey. Hmm.

Battle Royale? Never would have occurred to me.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

These are the ones I left deliberately off my list.

1.   Dawn Of The Dead (1978)
3.   Aliens
10.   Hellraiser
25.   Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn
37.   The Omen (1976)
100.   Cube

Some Bold Choices

96. Michael Jackson: Thriller
75. The Terminator
73. The Seventh Seal
71. Fanny and Alexander
13. We Need to Talk About Kevin

I'm a bold man. I think I can defend all of those. The two Bergman are more scenes than the entire films, but there is a dread associated with each that fits the horror thing pretty well. The Terminator is pretty clearly a horror film (at least, if Jaws is). Thriller terrified me as a kid. WNtTAK is really creepy.

By what standard are Hellraiser and The Omen not horror?

This is awesome.  Horror is by far my favorite genre. Can't wait to get to work on this.

Oh, they're horror. Horrible horror, but horror nonetheless.

If you asked me to guess one film in your top 10, I'd pick Trouble Every Day.  Don't think of it as a horror movie?

I think I just overlooked it.
