Every Horror Film Preserved in the US Library of Congress

The U.S. Library of Congress National Film Registry preserves films that are historically, aesthetically, or culturally significant, including horror. While the horror genre often gets an upsetting lack of respect from mainstream critics and awards ceremonies, horror is just as essential an element of film's past, present, and future as any other genre. There's a reason horror has been a go-to for movies since the early days of the medium, and that's because the genre allows for almost anything to happen, and offers filmmakers a limitless well of creativity that's only constrained by money and time limitations.
Thankfully, the National Film Registry operated by the U.S. Library of Congress hasn't forgotten to give horror its due, inducting quite a few fright flicks into its hallowed halls. Here's a complete list of horror films deemed important enough to be preserved.
