Favorite Horror Films Of The 70's

My top 10 favorite horror films of the 70's starting with 1970 through 1979.

  • Count Yorga, Vampire
  • The Brotherhood of Satan
  • Frogs
  • Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things
  • Shriek of the Mutilated
  • Bug
  • Martin
  • Kingdom of the Spiders
  • The Manitou
  • Tourist Trap


  • No Race with the Devil (1975)? That'd make my top ten, along with Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1974), but I'm not sure whether you included TV movies or not. Frogs, Bug, Kingdom of the Spiders and Tourist Trap all pretty much scared the shit out of me first time I saw them. Since I generally get freaked out by Satanic cult films (like Race with the Devil) I need to give Brotherhood of Satan a watch because if I've seen it, it's been awhile.

  • "Race With The Devil" is indeed a fine flick and while it is indeed a fave of mine it doesn't rate as high as those on my list do, at least for me it doesn't. It's on a bluray double bill with "Dirty Larry, Crazy Mary" and that is one hell of a double bill don't you think?
    "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" is also a helluva movie but I wasn't thinking of TV movies when I made the list. If so I would've included "A Cold Night's Death", "Trilogy Of Terror", "Horror At 37,000 Ft.", "The Norliss Tapes", "Gargoyles" & "Spectre", all of them great movies.

    I hope you dig "Brotherhood Of Satan" as much as I do. I think it's a criminally overlooked film! let me know what you think afterwards.
