Reader Top Ten Greatest Horror Films 1960 - 2000: Dave Stewart of Bloody Terror


Dave Stewart, blogger at Bloody Terror -- who is going through all his favorite horror films on that site right now -- contributes our last Wednesday list.  Dave writes:


"Here are my choices alphabetically:

The Brood - 1979

Carrie - 1976


Deep Red - 1975


The Devils - 1971


The Exorcist - 1973


Halloween - 1978


Jaws - 1975


Psycho - 1960


Rosemary’s Baby - 1968


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 1974."



Dave: A sturdy, well-conceived list, and I am especially happy to see The Brood (1979) make the cut.  I just re-watched that film recently, and it holds up beautifully, especially as a parable for the cycle of domestic violence (and ensuing trauma) continuing from one generation to the next.  Also happy to see De Palma's Carrie make another list...
