Stephen Scaralata’s Top 25 Horror / Suspense Films

Many years back, Brian Saur of The Pure Cinema Podcast introduced me to creating a Top 100 movies list. Every year I try to update that list here on Letterboxd to see how my tastes change. Sometimes The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is on my list, then the following years, it's bumped off, then it returns. But strangely, a movie like Superfights stays on the list, and The Road Warrior will exit.

This is my first genuine attempt Top 25 horror movies list, and it was tough. Like with my top 100 list, my number one movie never changes horror list or not. Jaws will forever be at the top. To me, it's a perfect film. I tell people, this is…
