Top 30 Horror Movies Of All Time March 2010

Meh

By Far one of my Favorite Editorials to do is the top lists. Unlike alot of other top lists we base alot of our top lists off of you the readers and your votes. So to start this piece I want to point out that if you do not agree with this list dont blame me or any other staff of this site. This list was made by YOU. Or if you have not shared a review, is not as good as it could be because of YOU. See how I made it all your fault? :)

At any rate below is the Top 30 Horror films of all time based off of you the readers reviews. This list is a live list which is constantly changing as reviews are submitted and approved and its always interesting to see how the list changes. As always submit your own reviews for your favorite horror films and help make this list the most accurate list of Top Horror Films by those that count the most.. YOU... the horror fans!

In order for a film to appear on the Top 5 list it must have a minimum of 5 approved reviews for the film. To view a list of films that are JUST short of enough reviews to make the top list look here
