50+ Best Horror Movies of All Time, Ranked by MovieWeb

"Horror filmmakers not only have to perfect the art of pacing & building tension, but they often need to locate something that sets them apart. This could be knowing their audience about the myriad subgenres within horror & really specializing in one; reflecting the neuroses & fears at the heart of the human subject through allegory; or having their finger on the pulse of contemporary sociopolitical issues & commentary. This latter classification is often what makes scary movies truly important. Horror audiences are extremely well-informed & often overly critical of genre clichés. Alongside this, culture, morality, politics, & special effects technology are all changing constantly. Horror continuously has to reinvent itself, both for its audience & to keep up with the times. Whether for their allegorical messages & theories, for their cultural impact, or just for being damn terrifying & visually stunning, these are the best & most important horror movies ever made." - movieweb.com
