Film | Empire's 50 Best Horror Movies Ever

With Halloween literally right around the corner, I thought I would take some of the horror films I've seen and those I want to see from Empire's 50 Best Horror Movies Ever and do a little post.

Empire's Best Horror Films 1
50. The Devil's Backbone (2001)
47. Audition (1999)
45. Cat People (1945)
44. Day of the Dead (1985)
I have been wanting to watch both the Devil's Backbone and Cronos ever since watching Hellboy but I still haven't gotten around to it. I've already seen the Day of the Dead remake so I think I should watch the original.

Empire's Best Horror Films 2
42. The Skin I Live In (2011)
41. Dracula (1958)
40. The Blair Witch Project (1999)
39. The Babadook (2014)
I watched Blair Witch Project while I was doing my A-Levels and it's safe to say that I thought it was terrifying. Same with The Babadook, I watched this in the cinema last year and I don't think I've ever been so freaked out by a horror film in my life.

Empire's Best Horror Films 3
35. Poltergeist (1982)
33. Don't Look Now (1973)
32. Let The Right One In (2008)
30. It Follows (2014)
I studied Don't Look Now when I was in Sixth Form and to be honest I wasn't too keen on it at first, but it definitely started to grow on me when we studied it in more detail.
I read Let the Right One In before I watched the film and I thought it was fantastic. I wasn't too sure that the film would be any good, but I thought it was almost as good as the book. I've added the Hollywood version to my list of films to watch but I don't think it will be as good as the Swedish version.

Empire's Best Horror Films 4
28. The Descent (2005)
26. The Others (2001)
25. 28 Days Later (2002)
22. Eyes Without a Face (1960)

Empire's Best Horror Films 5
20. Psycho (1960)
15. Rosemary's Baby (1968)
14. Wicker Man (1973)
13. The Cabin in The Woods (2012)
The Wicker Man is another film I watched back when I was in Sixth Form, and to be honest I hated it. It wasn't my type of film to begin with but then we had to watch it over and over again.

Empire's Best Horror Films 6
10. Jaws (1975)
9. Pan's Labyrinth (2006)
5. Halloween (1978)
4. The Thing (1982)
Jaws and Pan's Labyrinth are definitely two of my all-time favourite movies, I seen both of them more times than probably necessary.

Empire's Best Horror Films 7
3. Scream (1996)
2. Alien (1979)
1. The Shining (1980)
