Top 30 Canadian Horror Movies

Meh

I think this is the first Canadian oriented editorial I have ever done. A reader from Vancouver wrote in to ask what my favorite Canadian Made Horror Films were and I decided to spend all morning updating the Tomb so it showed a new genre 'Canadian' to help with this editorial.

Some of my favorites include Black Christmas, Screamers, End of the Line, GingerSnaps and My Bloody Valentine. The list could go on and on. But more importantly what do FANS say are their favorites? So below is the Top 30 Canadian Horror Movies based on Fan Reviews. Give it a look and of course contribute your reviews. Any reviews for Canadian Horror Movies will be worth up to 200 toe tags for the next 3 days. Toe Tags being those awesome things that will win you a Bluray Player!
