Top Horror Films Pre-1970

Notice the significant decrease in the amount of films listed? This is a top 30(+) list of the horror films spanning from the dawn of cinema to 1969. While in my defense, the 1970s and later have many, many more horror films the years before it, it's my weak point when it comes to horror. I haven't seen enough pre-1970 genre films..
