American Psycho

Patrick Bateman is a Wall Street executive and a Huey Lewis and the News enthusiast who spends a lot of his free time being a serial killer.

Children of the Corn

It's a tale as old as time. A couple's car breaks down in a small town and gets pestered by a cult of murderous children, and it all has something to do with corn.

Dead Snow

It's all quiet on the Norwegian front until a group of medical students take a ski trip that gets interrupted by Nazi zombies, which can put a damper on any vacation.

From Dusk Till Dawn

Hey parents, if your kid's old enough (and cool enough) to watch scary movies, show them this one without telling them anything about it. If they've never heard of it, their reactions will be priceless. Just tell them Robert Rodriguez made a movie where George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino are bank robbers and Salma Hayek shows up. That should do it.


A demon summoned by Nazis turns into America's greatest hero. Ron Perlman kicks ass doing his Ron Perlman thing. If you're waiting for Pacific Rim 2, this movie is worth watching again.


An undead man trying to reclaim his life turns to an ex-mistress for help in making human sacrifices. Also a pin cushion demon guy is out to get him. There are also eight more of these movies on Netflix.

Let The Right One In

Weird crap continues to happen in Scandinavia. When a bullied young boy makes friends with the new girl in his apartment complex, things get creepy as she turns out to be a vampire. One of the best horror films of the last decade.

Rosemary's Baby

A newly pregnant woman becomes increasingly paranoid as she fears for the safety of her baby while surrounded by strange people and occurrences.


Ever see Saw? I saw Saw once. It was better than the 600 other Saw movies that followed. Danny Glover is a crazy detective and Robin Hood doesn't do a bad job either.


Wes Craven took horror in a different direction in the 90's with the Scream series, making a string of serial killer flicks that were just self aware enough to entertain without going into Scary Movie territory.

The Addams Family

The old cartoon and TV show comes to life in this 1991 adaptation that was one of the most successful films of the year. The macabre family is in danger of being swindled for all they're worth when a couple of cons try to take their fortune. Just how 90's is this movie? It's got a song by MC Hammer in it.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Remember those kids in high school? You know the ones. They had the shirts, they knew the song, and they worshipped Tim Burton. It's the only reason they saw Alice in Wonderland and thought it was any good. Watch this movie and remember those people.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

A couple of scruffy looking guys trying to fix up a cabin run into a group of teenagers. Both groups think the other is trying to kill each other. It's one of the funniest horror movies ever.

The Babadook

A single mother and her basket case son try to fight off a monster that seems to come out of one of the kid's stories. A refreshing take on psychological horror.

The Fly

Jeff Goldblum is great and all, but experience the master of horror in the original version of The Fly: Vincent Price.

Vampire in Brooklyn

Another thing Wes Craven did in the 90's was putting Eddie Murphy in a movie as a vampire. That should be enough for you.


Just when you thought the zombie movie genre had been exhausted of ideas, a movie comes along that throws undead, flesh-hungry beavers into the equation. Just go with it.

The Monster Squad

It's the cult film that taught us that Wolfman has nards. Think of it as a sort of horror version of Goonies, where instead of hunting for a hidden treasure to save their families' homes from foreclosure, a rag-tag group of pre-teen misfits must prevent Dracula, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the rest of the Universal Monsters from blanketing the world in darkness and ushering an era of evil.

The Omen

It never fails. An orphaned newborn falls into your lap right after your own child dies at birth, so you adopt him and raise him as your own. And just when you think how awesome it is to have scored a replacement baby, the little tike turns our to be the Antichrist.

Day of the Dead

The third film in George Romero's Dead series finds a group of scientists and soldiers hidden in an underground bunker. Things go wrong when the scientists start experimenting on the zombies.
