The 4 were Dave, KOL and two by oldkid.

I was also considering Les Diaboliques, but for different reasons. It just doesn't compete with the other titles on the list.

It's been interesting to see 4 titles removed so far because people don't think the films are considered Horror.


I suppose if I were going to make my choices because I didn't like them, Susperia and Nosferatu would probably be at the top.

Let the Right One In

The Descent

Boo!

That's not a ghost "boo".

I think both of those are classics.

I'd hoped Descent would survive.

Silence of the Lambs-- I love this film, and there are some truly frightening moments.  But what makes this film is that it is a crime drama with horror elements.  I would say that it is much more a psychological thriller.

Reading this again, did you have to decide between this and Se7en, which I see as the same type of film? Do you prefer Se7en to Silence of the Lambs?

I didn't even notice Se7en.  What the hell is Se7en doing on this list?  Can I change out Silence for Se7en?
