This anthology includes nineteen original stories of revenge, romance, monsters and mayhem, ranging freely across time periods, genres and styles. The limited edition consists of hand-numbered, hardcover copies, with gold-embossed titles on midnight blue buckram and dark cream endpapers.
The book was then bound literally in cloth and sealed in wax; impressed with the seal of the Egypt Exploration Society. Because of its unique construction, purchasers of the limited edition also received a copy of the ebook for free. The hardcover, however, was entombed with its secrets Liz Gryzb and Talie Helene. Ellen Datlow. The full scope of the human condition is explored as the authors utilize the traditional cipher of the living mummy to tackle the emotional and material intricacies of death, loss, rememberance, physical resurrection, and immortality.
I'm in the mood for mummies. Regardless, this slasher classic itself little more than a ripoff of Halloween is still supremely creepy, provided you've ever spent time at overnight camp in New Jersey. Which I have. The shocking moments of gore, courtesy of Tom Savini, also hold up, although they don't seem quite so gruesome anymore, relatively speaking.

Scoff if you like I can't hear you , but I consider this one a low-budget masterpiece, one that not only kick-started a ridiculously popular franchise, but still stands as a master class on how to wring a whole lot of scary fun out of very few resources. Much like Sam Raimi did with The Evil Dead , James Wan and Leigh Whannell threw everything they had financial and otherwise into a creepy horror concept that they knew would work -- and boy did it.

Love the Saw series or hate it, there's no denying that it's a great lesson for aspiring filmmakers. Long before he graduated to Jurassic Park sequels, Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona made a big splash with his directorial debut, a wonderfully classy, refined, and straight-up terrifying tale of a haunted, abandoned orphanage. What starts out as a very laid-back s-style occult thriller slowly evolves into a legitimate horror story, thanks mainly to somewhat excellent actors -- but also because of some sudden, shocking jolts you simply won't see coming.
Not only is the flick frequently funny and horror-nerd-friendly, but it also delivers several amusing performances and some of the coolest zombie get-ups you'll ever see.
One of those endlessly controversial "arthouse horror" flicks that genre fans love to argue about, I am on team "YES" when it comes to this fascinating and unique period piece. It's about an ostracized family that slowly comes to realize something very dark and dangerous is waiting just outside their door.
Is it an actual witch, or is it a clever metaphor for intolerance, alienation, and class struggle?

I say it's both, and it's beautiful. Frankly, I wish director Robert Eggers would unleash a sequel or two. There are lots of horror films that deal with children, either as aggressors or as potential victims, but very few have been able to capture both of those ideas simultaneously as well as Jennifer Kent's endlessly fascinating The Babadook.
On the surface, it's the story of a book that certainly seems to be possessed by the soul of a horrible creature, but it's also about the bond between mother and child, the fear of losing your grip on reality, and the deep instinct to protect your family at any cost. Plus, yes, the titular creature is darkly wonderful, as is the creepy storybook in which he resides. Brian De Palma's adaptation of Stephen King's debut novel cemented both men as forces to be reckoned within the department of scary stories, but it's the lead performance by Sissy Spacek -- and the monumental one from Piper Laurie as Carrie's mother!
If you've seen one horror film in which an awkward outcast takes revenge against their tormentors in brutal and horrific fashion, then you've seen the powerful influence that Carrie left on the horror genre. It's sort of a cheat to include double features in lists like this one, but sometimes while trying to find a spot for a particular chiller, you nail a perfect pairing.
The Innocents is about a haunted house that just might not be haunted at all, whereas The Others is about a haunted house that's haunted by, well, I'm not going to spoil it. Both films milk the creaky, old haunted house motif wonderfully well; both are laden with strong performances; and both manage to hit a wonderfully satisfying, bittersweet tone that's the hallmark of great Gothic fiction.
You know how sometimes you have to build yourself up to try something scary like a roller coaster or a ridiculously spicy food? You'd start with a smaller carnival ride or mildly spicy sauce in order to prepare yourself for the really rough stuff. That's how one should approach this ferocious, thoroughly unpredictable, and borderline brilliant deconstruction of horror, torture, and violence: with caution. On its surface it's sort of a "home invasion" thriller, but the deeper you dig into this rabbit hole the freakier and more horrific the discoveries become.

Don't say you haven't been warned. When it comes to Clive Barker movies, most people generally talk about Hellraiser. Or Nightbreed. Oooh, or Midnight Meat Train. Where was I? Oh yes. If you want a "fun" horror film, look elsewhere. This one deals with racism, slavery, and oppression in a way that's bold and unique. James Whale's tragic adaptation of the celebrated Mary Shelley novel was the gold standard for decades -- even if it did generate a sequel that turned out superior in nearly every regard -- and it's not hard to see why. The production design alone is the stuff of a mad nightmare, Boris Karloff provides an unlikely soul to the creature stitched together with spare parts, and the film is laden with iconic moments that still manage to pack a wallop nearly 90 years later.
Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani star as a married couple whose relationship is clearly falling apart. Sounds pretty simple, right? This visceral gut-punch of a horror film pulled itself from obscurity to become an unlikely cult classic to horror fans over the world. It's worth seeing for the stunning lead performances alone, but it's also a horrific and fascinating metaphor for the ugly dissolution of a previously loving relationship.
Yeah, it's pretty heavy. You won't find all that many British horror films from this particular era, but there's no denying that this Ealing Studios classic is one of the most beloved not to mention influential anthology horror films ever made.
Although probably best known for its truly creepy story involving a freaky doll much like 's Trilogy of Terror! If you've seen at least one horror flick in which a bunch of broad archetypes discover a secret horror while visiting an isolated cabin, you will almost certainly have a ball while this maniacal carnival ride of a movie unspools. Also like Scream , this movie makes one point crystal clear: If you're going to poke fun at something, make sure it's something you actually like.
This dry British indie starts out like a melodrama -- Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie are trying to heal following the accidental death of their child -- but gradually transforms into a paranoia thriller that delves into the occult, the church, mental instability, and of course the ever-lingering specter of guilt. It's most assuredly an "arthouse horror" film, but it's one that's masterfully crafted and darkly memorable. Some will argue that this is not a horror film. I would argue that it most certainly is, at least in part, and that part is straight-up terrifying.
This flick swept the top five Oscars! That's almost unprecedented! My affection for this freaky, little mindfuck of a horror movie is well-documented check out the DVD commentary! This flick seems to be a "love it or hate it" sort of movie, which I appreciate.
Please place me firmly in the "love it" aisle. Oh, and that score! I may play this one on Halloween night. Horror anthologies may not be a huge box office draw historically speaking, but the really good ones manage to maintain a strong shelf life, and that's certainly the case with this colorful collaboration between horror juggernauts Stephen King and George Romero.
Every horror fan has their favorite segment -- I love "The Crate!!
The horror genre has plenty sub-divisions, and as far as old-school comic book-style "fun" horror goes, Creepshow is a masterpiece. Plus, it's so much fun to play the "omg it's I'll start you off with Ed Harris! We've all seen monster movies before, but when one comes along that messes with the formula and finds a way to make even the simplest of premises seem fresh, that's a horror film worthy of note. Director Neil Marshall drops five female friends into an uncharted cave and forces them to contend with not only feral humanoid monsters, but also horrific injuries, rampant claustrophobia, and the bitter sting of betrayal.
The result is one of the most intense creature features of the s.
