I love lists. They're so tidy, so concise, so usually off the mark, especially when it comes to horror movies. This list from Entertainment Weekly is actually good if you're a subscriber to Netflix, and looking for a what's what list of must-see horror movies. You should be able to rent most, if not all, of these gems. I'm not sure if EW intended any specific order here, but The Shining, while a good horror film, is definitely not number one on my list of the best or scariest.
What do you think? Entertainment Weekly's 20 Scariest Movies of All Time. And you can also click on the eye to see if you see eye to eye with The Most Horrific Films in Cinematic History. But since Myra Breckinridge is not on either of these lists, I'm not quite sure how accurate they are.
