Top 100 Horror films 1970 - 1979

In this list I will add my top 100 favorite horror films from 1970 until 1979, again, they are ranked but loosely.

Ten years ago if you would have asked me which decade was the BEST decade for horror I would have told you the 1980s, now I've realized the best decade for the horror film (so far) is the 1970s. While I may not have AS many favorites, I realize the quality of the films in the list are vastly superior to some of the films made in the 80s. Maybe it's just my preference that has changed :) Either way, it's hard to deny the 1970s as the golden age of horror.
