  1. Gets a little questionable towards the end (I liked Cemetery Man, The Others, and Tale of 2 Sisters, but wouldn’t call any of them “must see”). I’d add Ginger Snaps and would probably replace Saw with Hostel. The former spawned more sequels, but I still struggle to stay awake during it.

  2. OMG – I just realized that neither Alien nor The Thing are on this list, nullifying it entirely.

  3. I was quite surprised by some of the horror choices they left out myself. I am a big fan of Alien too! Ultimately, there are just too many horror films that should be seen before you die, and limiting yourself to only 101 when compiling a list such as this would be extremely difficult.

    I might take a crack at making my own 101 horror movies, but just thinking about it gives me a monster headache.
