  1. Interesting list though I think the original IT adaptation is far more unsettling than the new one. I mean they got the wrong type of horror. On top of that the jumpscares were all pretty much the same. It wasn’t very scary at all. They really should have gone for the Psychological horror the book goes for.

  2. Most of these movies I purposely watched alone,in the dark late at night.Slept like a baby afterwards.☺️I guess a lot of horror movie fans,like myself,enjoy scary movies,(even though not one on this list were too scary,)but after they’re over have no problem with still be able to not let them really bother you.

  3. A lot of these movies I never heard of. Although you did get me to smile as The Exorcist was #1. I saw Drag Me To Hell and not only is it not scary but a comedy!

  4. I saw green inferno on this list, they should mention and place cannibal holocaust, just sayin, Eli Roth is a hack in my opnion, Cabin Fever is his best effort to date…IMO. The director of Cannibal Holocaust, Dedato, was put on trial for this movie, Italian authority thought he murdered the people in the film, not to mention the actual animals killed on screen, sooo Eli Roth will never attain that kinda street credit, a long rant, but, they need to know there shallow list is just that, only what’s popular, not what is true autuer horror.
