If you call yourself a true horror fan and you haven't seen all of these films AND you haven't given them a 5 star rating, then I will eat my left foot. (Post-60s USA & UK Films)

Far from a definitive list of horror films, I reckon this would be a good representation of a number of key films that we can all agree are essential viewing for any horror fan.

Although, I am sure there will be those who disagree, and assuming you haven't been labotimised by an axe wielding madman, it would be interesting to know why.

So go ahead and abuse me if you hate any of the films below. It will be hard to suppress my contempt for you, but like a zombie with a burgeoning self awareness, I will reign in my impulse to eat your brains.
