We went down into the crypt, opened the coffin, and summoned the 100 best-reviewed horror films of all time. Behold — it’s RT’s Horror Countdown, a compendium of horror shows to keep your spine tingling!

What a pathetic list. Has the writer just finished Film Studies at university? Oh, it’s a list of the “best reviewed” horror movies? Well, there sure are a lot of idiots out there.

Seriously….Zombieland a horror movie? And it’s above The Exorcist which is a genre defining horror… Are you fucking kidding me?

Everybody likes horror movies, but not everybody has the time to really delve into them and explore the genre. There are just too many, and unless you’re actively making your living as a film critic, it is entirely understandable if you don’t have the time. But that’s how misconceptions get started, those misleading observations based only on the most visible motion pictures in a genre, like the frequently expressed belief that the 1990s were a terrible decade for horror movies.

Of course not every horror movie from the 1990s was great, and many of them really were just plain awful. A couple of the most popular ones didn’t even make this list, and we’ve already produced an entire downloadable commentary track, available free of charge, that explains why Event Horizon is one of them . But despite their absence it still wasn’t difficult to compile this list of one hundred great – and if not great then at least entertaining (or at least extremely interesting) – horror movies from throughout the decade. These films reveal just how diverse and fascinating the genre really was in the 1990s.

So the next time someone tells you that horror movies sucked in the 1990s, point ’em in the direction of these films, and challenge them to give the decade another shot. Even some of the so-called “bad” horror movies of the era are worthy of new eyes twenty years later, and it may surprise you to learn that they play a lot better now than they did the first time.

In 2017, we’ve seen this upward trend reach unpredictable heights, as now, most measures point to this being the most successful year in the history of the genre. So maybe it’s time we revisit an old favorite.

Liam Gavin’s film takes an honest, grounded look at the occult. While so many horror films portray the supernatural as something with effects that are almost immediate, A Dark Song lingers on the process and steps of ritual at the heart of the film, testing our patience as much as it does the characters. In its careful concentration tension and spirituality, Gavin gives a unique voice to the idea that grieving, like the occult, is no easy process.

The Soska Sisters’ dive into the underground world of the body modification community in a film that balances gore with empathy for the so-called “freaks” of the world. American Mary is not only a vehicle for some rather ingenious prosthetics, but also features a coolly detached performance from Katherine Isabelle as surgeon Mary Mason. In a slight twist on both the rape/revenge and body horror sub-genres, American Mary uses surgery as the transformative power to make people into exactly what they are on the inside.
