IMDB Horror Board Top 201 Horror Movie Poll - Final List completed! 1920's-present!

Here are the complete results for those of you who wanted to see the final results!

Credited: IMDB/ZombieCPA

An increase of 15 from the new millennium over last year. It was due, in large part, to an increase in participation of newer board members in the poll.

The surprise of the top 19 is The Shining. It took Psycho's place in the top 4. It is the first year that TCM, NOTLD, Psycho, and Halloween didn't represent the top 4.

Re: IMDB Horror Board Top 201 Horror Movie Poll - Final List completed! 1920's-presen

Intruder made the list? I love 80s slasher films more than just about any other type of movie, but even within the slasher subgenre I thought that film was middle of the pack. I'm surprised it beat out (IMO) far superior slashers from the decade like Terror Train, My Bloody Valentine, and Happy Birthday to Me. I wonder if the Raimi/Campbell connection has something to do it.

I think I need to try and watch Rosemary's Baby again. Tried watching it about 15 years ago and was bored to death. I couldn't finish it.

Have to say I disagree with The Descent's high ranking.

Re: IMDB Horror Board Top 201 Horror Movie Poll - Final List completed! 1920's-presen

Cannibal Holocaust is rated pretty highly, number 20. It's an interesting film, I have it on DVD. That's the one where the director was arrested for murdering the cast of the film, until he was able to prove that they didn't actually die in the film and were still alive. It also received an X rating which they didn't accept, so it is technically not rated.

If you want to read more about the film...

And any of the films listed in the Top 50 or so will be good blind-rentals.

One of my favorites. It's a slow build, but it's worth it as Polanski ratchets up the suspense and growing dread to some pretty terrifying results. His REPULSION is ranked too low at 49 as well.

Have to say I disagree with The Descent's high ranking.
I agree with you there. Overrated swill.

The Cannibal Holocaust DVD features a special feature where one of the actors begs that the animal violence be removed from the DVD release. Pretty funny.
