Scary Movie Week: 75 great horror movies

Should you be in need of a classic scary movie this week, Rotten Tomatoes has put together a handy list of the 75 best-reviewed horror films on their site. Read the whole list here, or just peruse their top 10, which has a decidedly old-school vibe:

  1. “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” (1920)
  2. “Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror” (1922)
  3. “Repulsion” (1965)
  4. “King Kong” (1933)
  5. “The Bride of Frankenstein” (1935)
  6. “Psycho” (1960)
  7. “The Night of the Hunter” (1955)
  8. “Alien” (1979)
  9. “The Invisible Man” (1933)
  10. “Frankenstein” (1931)

Wondering how far down the list you have to go to find something recent? That would be #14 (“Let the Right One In,” 2008), #33 (“Cabin in the Woods,” 2012), and #34 (“Drag Me to Hell,” 2009).
