100 Best Horror Films - Scariest Movies

The best horror films, as voted for by over 100 experts including Simon Pegg and Roger Corman

Time Out proudly presents the 100 best horror films, as chosen by those who write in, direct, star in and celebrate the genre.

Horror cinema is a monster. Mistreated, misunderstood and subjected to vicious critical attacks, somehow it keeps lumbering forward, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. For some, horror films are little better than pornography, focused purely on evoking a reaction – be it terror, disquiet or disgust – with little thought for ‘higher’ aspirations. For others, they're just a bit of fun: a chance to shriek and snigger at someone’s second-hand nightmare. 

But look again, and the story of horror is also the story of innovation and non-conformity in cinema, a place where dangerous ideas can be expressed, radical techniques can be explored, and filmmakers outside the mainstream can still make a big cultural splash. If cinema itself has an unconscious, a dark little corner from which new ideas emerge, blinking and malformed, it must be horror. The question is – which are the best horror films?

We polled well over 100 horror enthusiasts – with big names like Roger Corman, Guillermo del Toro, Simon Pegg, Clive Barker and Alice Cooper, and horror legends like Coffin Joe, Kim Newman and Tom Six – and came up with a definitive top 100 list.

The result may surprise you: while the top ten may be stuffed with big hitters, the full list is wonderfully unpredictable and packed with oddball leftfield choices. But what about your opinion?

As always, we’re keen to know what we got wrong and what we got right, so leave your opinionated rants (‘Where the hell was “I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle”?!’) on Facebook or on Twitter using #besthorrorfilms, by voting in our poll or in the comments below. Meanwhile, enjoy the list and prepare to be frightened. Very, very frightened.

The first photo is out for Bryan Fuller's remake of the classic quirky sitcom The Munsters, Mockingbird Lane. Unfortunately, it's not a cast picture (we're dying to see Eddie Izzard as Grandpa), but it does set a cartoony gothic tone — at least where the show's architecture is concerned. More »

Young Oceans

Young Oceans

Brooklyn, NY / Gospel | Experimental


Before the beginning it is said the great Spirit of God in canopies of darkness hovered over the face of the deep the brooding potential of all to come stirring the waters down into the ominous void went the words of God creating space to be filled with water and life teeming first light on the young oceans vast the life it grew always on into the space beyond though the poisons came bent backs and nothing was the same except for God before the end it is said we the young oceans will wrestle no more with the deep dark glimpsing out like children before the sea we see what will be coming singing on the banks waiting together and telling winding stories of just how the ancient curse has lost its grip so all with God are young forever -Caleb Clardy

The 20 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2012 - Film School Rejects

An interesting list to be sure - hadn't even heard of some of these movies before reading this list.

The 20 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2012
Film School Rejects
Nothing says “summer at the movies” quite like a metric ton of big name blockbusters flooding theaters near you – superheroes on top of superheroes, classic television series brought back from the dead, animated gems about finding yourself – oh my! But with the cinema summer growing ever-larger, the stakes being pushed ever-higher, and enough content to keep audience members in their seats ever-longer, a line has to be drawn somewhere.

Which is why all the members of the Voting Body of Film School Rejects gathered together in our secret chambers to vote on just which films have won our Most Anticipated nod. Twenty films emerged from our complicated, decades-old voting process (read: a Google doc) to be crowned winners. Why twenty? Well, there are twenty weeks in the cinematic summer season (if you count May, which we do – April will be included next year if Hollywood keeps this up), and that should give you movie-lovers a reasonable goal to meet for the viewing season.

We’ve even managed to pinpoint our most anticipated movie-going weekend of the summer – June 22nd, when four films open in theaters, all of which made our list. But beyond the mathematics that went into picking the summer’s best weekend, there were also some genuine surprises on the list – including big tentpole films missing completely (sorry, Battleship and Dark Shadows), some indies that sneaked in with lots of votes, a battle royale that went down between our number one and number two picks, and the shock of our number four pick (one that will likely surprise more than a few of you – especially when you see the number five film it stuck an arrow in before emerging victorious).

After the break, check out the Officially Official List of the Twenty Most Anticipated Films of Your Movie-Going Summer, 2012 Edition.

How Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will de-cheese his Highlander reboot! [Highlander]

Could a Highlander remake/reboot actually be worth seeing...I personally doubt it, but the director of 28 Weeks Later will still give it a stab (and I'm gonna make the call that Jeremy Renner will play Conner Macleod given his appearance in the afore mentioned zombie flick).
