Even the most dedicated follower of fear hasn't seen every horror movie made. Here are ten you need to catch up with, if you haven't already.
So, you're a horror fan. A dedicated follower of dread. You've seen all the classics and suffered through hundreds of hackneyed wannabes. Whenever October roles around and the studios start thinking about scares, you head over to your favorite fright-oriented website and read up on all the potential paranormal activity to take place. You eagerly anticipate a date at the local Cineplex, or more times than not, an epic streaming across several VOD platforms.
Usually you're disappointed. Sometimes, you're rewarded. And even after all that, after numerous revisits to a certain cabin in the woods or a haunted '70s-era farmhouse, you're still not satisfied. You want more, and not just the junk that Tinseltown thinks is frightening (like sudden shocks in front of a surveillance camera).
Well, we're here to help. Of course, being a connoisseur of all things creepy, this alphabetical list of ten horror movies you need to catch up with may already be old news to you. After all, macabre mavens will search long and hard for something, anything original and exciting within their favorite cinematic style. It's their purpose in life.
Of course, just like taste in music and/or favorite foods, not everyone will agree on the choices here. In fact, there are at least two titles among the others that will probably see significant hatred based on the credited director's name alone. Still, for those who need their fill of fear, or who've gone through every possible permutation of the entire Friday the 13th / Halloween / Nightmare on Elm Street series, these movies might just surprise and scare you.
