  1. Older horror films are the best. The ones that come out today just lack a lot what the likes of elm street, friday the 13th, the birds etc had that made them the best in the first place

  2. The exorcist still creeps me out every time I've watched it, and I've had to seen it probably at least a hundred times. All these movies are genius in their own right in their own way

  3. It's ridiculous to say "psycho" is number one.
    It was clearly anticipated that the original movie was going to be a major hit.
    That's historically factual.
    To not include the original halloween movie and the original friday the 13th movie in this list?
    Its historically factual that it was believed those two movies were not going to be major hits .
    Yet they turned out to be the most watched horror movies in history.
    To the narrator of this video, I'm sorry but, your wrong.
    Redo your research.

  4. I'm just curious.
    Did she say "david bowie" did the song "" under pressure.
    If she did, the song that was playing in this video, at that point in this video, was not david Bowie.
    I'm just saying.
    Ya know?

  5. I watched Psycho, The Exorcist, and the original Nightmare on Elm Street. No fear, no jump scares, and overall, wasn't impressed. I've begun involved in situations like that in war and in investigating homicides. Those situations tend to set your bar high. Real life is the Queen Bitch and Hollyweird comes in at a distant second.

  6. 10 (Saw) and 5 (Nightmare On Elm Street) surprised me the most. They are too good of movies, at least the original movies, and I could not imagine what the genre would be without it. I also don't want to 🤷🏽‍♂️😂💯

  7. Salo is the most depraved movie I have ever seen. There are many scenes of sexual abuse, and people eating feces. I wish I never saw it. If that movie made the list it should be #1, unless you are counting A Serbian Film.
