    The 50 Best Horror Movies You've Never Seen

    ★★

    I've never been the kind of horror fan who wanted to see every movie. So, I don't judge this list from what I've seen. Still... Re-Animator, Silent Night, Deadly Night, The Dentist, Wishmaster, and Pumpkinhead are on this list. So, it's a lemon list whether its aim was the "Best" part or the "Never Seen" part.

    It exists more as a mood piece to drum up Halloween season movie watching enthusiasm.

    Though I do appreciate knowing Queen Latifah is a fan of The Beast Within. I mean, I hate the film. But I don't see myself forgetting this factoid very soon.

    ★★★

    As an out gay man, I haven't seen many gay films. There are any number of reasons why.

Sleepaway Camp aims lower but nonetheless passes with Sleaze Honors. In the arena of so-bad-it's-good horror movies -…

    ★★★★

    #63 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Excitement and danger come first, characters come second. Which is totally okay in Spielbergia. Though those kids are incredibly annoying at times. ("Vegiesaurus! Meatasaurus!" ...Really, movie?) And some of the drama is pretty seriously forced down your throat (Laura Dern before eating the ice cream, Attenborough's super-scream on the telephone, Jeff Goldblum... in general, that kid and the tree climbing, and the fence jumping). But it is exciting and it never did skimp on the danger, did it? Holds up surprisingly well. I probably never enjoyed it this much.
