The best horror films, as voted for by more than 100 experts
Time Out proudly presents the 100 best horror films, as chosen by those who write, direct, star in and celebrate the genre. We polled more than 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. 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 you? Let us know your favourite horror movie in the poll below. Meanwhile, enjoy the list and be afraid. Be very afraid. With huge thanks to Time Out London’s Derek Adams, Dave Calhoun, Cath Clarke, Sarah Cohen, Nigel Floyd and Tom Huddleston, and also FrightFest and Cine-Excess.
