  1. I’m pretty sure The Sixth Sense and Psycho are considered psychological horror movies and they definitely deserve to be on the list

  2. You should update the best horror remakes list as this decade has given us plenty of great ones such as Suspiria and Child’s Play

  3. 10. Jacobs Latter was pretty confusing
    9.Repulsion was great
    8. Don’t look Now is one of the best films of all time in suspense and horror … that ending..unforgettable.
    7. The Others is a classic elegant masterpiece with an intense performance from Nicole.
    6. The Babadook is overrated … soooo corny
    & utterly forgettable.
    5. Misery was a great mental mind fk.
    4. Black Swan is one of my all time faves
    Art and dark psychology at its best in smart suspense.
    3. The Silence of the Lambs has no competition, as said a true masterpiece.
    2. Rosemarys Baby was genuinely scary
    Great film.
    1. The Shinning is not just my fave film and one of the best horror films of all times it’s a top notch suspense ride.

    Honorable mentions :
    The Orphanage. Seven. Identity. The Ring. What lies beneath. Suspiria & my all time personal favorite …Mulholland Drive … now that was a mental mind fk in its own league.
