What the top 100 list really tells us is that there are about 50 good horror movies total. Slim pickings.
for my money, both Psycho and The Shining are contenders for #1, way ahead of the dated and rather silly Exorcist. my nomination? without question, takashi miike’s Audition.
for what it’s worth, i don’t think there ARE 100 horror films worth compiling into a list.
