If you're in an introductory film studies class the odds are you will have to watch the vast majority, if not all, of the films on this list. If you haven't taken one yet, why not get started on your homework in advance!
Only the genre's greatest masterpieces feature in our list of horror classics, with everything from Stephen King's 'The Shining', to 'The Exorcist', 'Wicker Man', and the original 'Texas Chainsaw'. Slashers, supernatural, and psychological - this collection has it all!
What happens at your typical Academy Awards? Some namby pamby drama nabs the big categories, while all the really exciting stuff gets a cold shoulder. Well, not always - these horror films, directed on a blue moon, actually took home a wee golden man!
Some of these horror movies are directly based on true events (i.e. the serial killer ones), others' relationship to reality may best be described as 'inspired by', but all contain some grain of truth.
For as long as there have been teens there have been psychopathic maniacs eager to teach them bizarrely orthodox lessons about chastity and respect through the medium of machetes. Check out such classics as 'Nightmare on Elm Street', 'Halloween', and 'Scream' right here!
From a time when poor scripts couldn't hide behind CGI gimmicks, these are our favourite classic drama movies. Apparently Peter O’Toole left his watch on during the filming of “Lawrence of Arabia.” See if you can get through the whole thing and spot the goof!
Don't look for buckets of blood and axe wielding maniacs here (at least not exclusively). These classic psychological horror movies released before the year 1990 rely more on the unseen than the seen for their impact. Also check out our 'Modern Psychological Horror' collection for more recent fare!
Series of unrelated short stories covering elements of crime, horror, drama and comedy about people of different species committing murders, suicides, thefts and other sorts of crime caused by certain motivations; perceived or not.
