Reader Top Ten Greatest Horror Films Circa 1960 - 2000: Aaron DePhillips


Reader and friend Aaron DePhillips provides us our next top ten greatest horror films (circa 1960 - 2000) list, and he's got some terrific titles here...

Aaron writes:

"10. Aliens (1986)

09 Creepshow (1982)

08. Halloween (1978)

07. The Wicker Man (1973)

06. An American Werewolf in London (1981)

05. The Evil Dead (1983)

04. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

03. Jaws (1975)

02. A Nightmare on Elm Street III: Dream Warriors (1987)

01. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984),"

Aaron: Terrific list. The original A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) is such a great film. I watched it recently and it still holds up, and it is still really scary. Craven's film boasts a tremendous atmosphere of dread, and I'm always impressed by Heather Langenkamp's performance as Nancy.

I'm also happy to see The Blair Witch Project get another shout-out.  Elm Street launched the rubber-reality sub-genre, and BWP launched the found-footage genre, for sure...
