If anybody ever tells you that modern horror films are in a drought of overall quality, or have lost their fright factor, just pull out this little list. Feel free to leave some suggestions! The cut-off point for horror films to qualify on this list is 1995.
The criteria is organized by films that I've seen and horror films that I've heard and read numerous times are shining examples of the continued streak of great, original films in the horror genre. Just know that I've not seen all of these films.
