The 20 Best British Horror Films of All Time
Brexit is scary, but these movies are scarier.


Frankly, I enjoy nearly all the movies on this list much more than I do the ones on last week's...

A truly fantastic list.  Of course, if anyone here still hasn't seen The Innocents, for obvious reasons do so soon.

Glad they mentioned, "Children of the Damned", that was a good, spooky movie.

Of course, "The Haunting" is magnificent, and, "Wicker Man" still spooks me to this day (the original one).

That article is a great illustration of why I hate all these lists.  I have no doubt that the list reflects the author's taste very accurately.  A lot of those films, though, you couldn't pay me to sit through.

I do recommend Peeping Tom, although I'd call it a psychological suspense film, not horror. The lead actor, who was German, gave an amazing performance.  The movie destroyed the career of the director because it was so completely pilloried in the British press of the period.

There are some more imaginative lists out there if you google British Folk Horror films.  They still miss out on some excellent films because they are LISTS--the "list" is the antithesis of the whole concept and activity of cultivating aesthetic taste. But I must descend the soap box before I am booted off this forum for good.

cheers, G.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, Gothick, so there are no worries of you being booted off.  [ghost_nowink]

I do have to confess that I've never even heard of some of the movies on the list - but An American Werewolf in London, Village of the Damned, Frenzy, '58's Dracula, 28 Days Later, The Haunting, Donít Look Now, and The Innocents are all among my favorites and I actually own all of them on DVD. That's basically the reason why I said I enjoy the movies on this list more than I do the ones on The 20 Best Horror Movies Of The 21st Century list. But then, I've only seen 4 films on that list - and I would never want to see The Human Centipede...

Oh, I certainly hope you are never booted off this forum. I always enjoy hearing your opinions, no matter how wrong they are!  [easter_grin]
