Must-See/Recommended Horror Films

dr-phibes

The films in the ‘Must-See’, first section, are important in terms of their global impact on the horror movie genre, either for their box office draw, artistic merit, cult credibility, or simple shock value.

This selection has been compiled from a wide range of choices by critics and fans worldwide and does not reflect the opinions of individual Horrorpedia editors or contributors.

Many of these movies are not without flaws and the list is not meant to be a ‘best of’, or fully comprehensive; it simply offers a snapshot of significant fright films to perhaps seek out if you have not yet seen them.

The ‘Recommended’ films in the second section are those that we recommend as being better than the average genre fare.

Both listings are ongoing works-in-progress with many more titles to be added…
