100 great horror films by screenshot

A very predictable list with a few surprises.

I thought I'd do better, but I got hung up on quite a few.

76/100

Based on a single screenshot identify the movie...

Still can't believe I'm not able to recognize Vincent Price without the moustache.

I don't know if I would count the Kolchak movies, since they were made for TV. Maybe that's just me.

I have alot of arguments with that list.

Silence of the lambs is not a horror movie,

Neither is The Elephant man.

Frankly speaking, project, there're some more that don't belong in the list.

Garbage list. Chainsaw and Duel at #s 89 and 91, countless good movies unmentioned.

I don't agree with the order, but I am impressed that the list includes so many older films.

And based on the pictures, I got 61/100 right (a D- but still a passing grade )

There are also 2 Sherlock Holmes movies on their list. Even though they both deal with "supernatural" elements, calling them horror is a stretch. I don't think Nightmare Alley or Night of the Hunter should count either.

Maybe one Vincent Price/Edgar Allen Poe adaptation would be enough for a list like this.
