Reader Top Ten Greatest Horror Films (1960 - 2000): Le0pard13 at It Rains...You Get Wet

My friend and fellow blogger, Le0pard13 of It Rains...You Get Wet, has today posted an in-depth look at his top ten greatest horror films, circa 1960 - 2000.  The list -- as well as Le0pard13's presentation of it -- is extraordinary.

So click on over and read the whole thing here, it's worth it.

In the meantime, here's the list in terms of titles for our tally.

10. The Exorcist III (1990)

09. Halloween (1978)

08. John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)

07. Ringu (1998)

06. The Haunting (1963)

05. The Changeling (1980)

04. The Evil Dead (1983)

03. Night of the Living Dead (1968)

02. Alien (1979)

01. The Exorcist (1973)

Le0pard13: I love your list, and in particular that it finds the space for underrated efforts like Ringu (1998) and The Changeling (1980). But mostly, as I noted on Facebook, I'm happy to see The Exorcist III (1990) appearing on so many lists. 

I haven't starting doing the calculations yet, but it's appeared enough times, on enough lists, to suggest that the film has survived its rough 1990 reception, and risen in stature to be considered, well, classic.  Very interesting!

Great list, my friend, and I thank you for another wonderful contribution to The Reader Top Ten.
