"When I was asked to put together a ranked list of the best horror movies of all time, I thought it would be a fun project. And then I collated about 150 titles, tried to whittle that list down, and nearly went insane at least three times. Then I had a few anxiety attacks after realizing how many people would call me a moron for leaving their favorite horror film off the list, passed out for two days, woke up, and finished writing.
After an initial effort that put the total at 50 movies, I bumped the number up to 75 total." - Scott Weinberg/Thrillist
Note: There are 79 films in this list since in the original text some of the movies were filed under as one and I have separated them.
