So You Think You Know Horror?

Though this list contains every horror-ish movie I've ever seen, my goal is to feature lesser-known horror films so novices can know what to seek out. The easiest way was just to list everything I've seen sorted by my ratings.

Not every title is strictly horror. I have included films of all genres provided they contain horrific elements: ghosts, witches, serial killers, etc., even if those characters/elements are benign.
