Only 16 for me. There are some there I really should have seen that for whatever reason I've never got around to.

A fairly long one, latest update to my list of horror movies seen, now @ 480 movies/12 pages on LC: https://www.listchallenges.com/480-horror-movies-adam-has-seen

Somehow I have left the first Saw off this and apparently ever previous update despite the fact that's a movie I saw long before reaching even the 500 movie milestone. Embarrassed

Anyway, I've condensed this into a Top 100 list here (Saw included): https://www.listchallenges.com/adams-current-top-100-horror-movies

This was actually difficult to decide what to include. I've seen more horror movies than any other genre, but so few are what I'd consider even solid, let alone actual gems. I don't think it corresponds to my ratings completely - seems to be the case that I remember some more fondly that I have a 3.5 on better than I do a 4.0. Still need to balance the old ratings out I guess. 

Couple of other recent lists here that aren't doing too well for me, which kinda sucks course I put a lot of effort into these ones.

^ I've been meaning to watch that - we have it on Netflix here - but I often find myself playing catch up with movies that are leaving net or Prime lately and always end up putting it off.

13 from there, with a few I own but haven't seen yet

Got 7 on there

Also, I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again. Best anime movie:

The Lupin series has a zany and fast-paced tone that's really separates itself from more recent anime. This was the only Lupin movie that Miyazaki directed, and best of his films imo. And if anyone who watches it enjoys, I highly recommend both the first and second series' of cartoons from the 70's. The American dub especially (for the movie as well), as the voice acting fits perfectly with the characters.

28. Did better on this one. I've seen a few of the Asian ones, though none of the anime. Never tried any that. 


I adore anime and that's mostly what I clicked on this one. Not entirely, got quite a few others in there I've seen, but mostly anime. 33 in total. 20 of them anime.

I watched Nosferatu. I found it all that more creepy for being silent. I will see about finally watching Metropolis as well. 

So now I've got 1 on the early horror list. Wink

Oh and you must indeed watch Metropolis if you like sci-fi. But it's even more important to make sure you get a restored version with that one (even then a lot of the film is damaged beyond the ability to repair). You need the Masters of Cinema DVD or Blu-Ray to make sure you get as much as the movie as is still around to see. And be careful not to get the older Masters of Cinema DVD from before a lot of the missing material was found. A sensational movie even with the extant damage to the film.

I actually just found a decent copy on YouTube if you don't wish to buy it. Not sure on the legality. It claims to be the public domain version but it's clearly not based on a comparison site I just looked at.

I'm open to pretty much anything but horror is one of my usual go to genres for movies. My knowledge of old movies, not counting Disney classics I grew up with on VHS, is limited to maybe half a dozen films right now. I'm open silent movies (always felt I should watch Metropolis for sci-fi movies - ironically Lang's M is one of the six I know I have seen that's from before 1960, but I haven't seen Metropolis), so I probably look into options for Nosferatu.

If you're specifically after a horror film of any age I'll second the Nosferatu rec. If you're prefer not to go for a silent film though then a couple of gems are Them! and The Thing From Another World. I'd especially go for the latter if you've seen Carpenter's version. I made the mistake recently of selling my copy on which I quickly regretted and ended up rebuying it. Maybe I was subconsciously looking for an excuse to upgrade to blu-ray. 

If you do decide to go for Nesferatu make sure it's a quality restoration with translated intertitles - there's some rough versions out there I believe. I myself own the Masters of Cinema blu-ray release which is probably as good as you'll get for a movie that old.

I haven't seen many of those, but I can easily recommend Nosferatu. Probably the most overall foreboding feeling movie I've seen, and it being silent just increases that.

Yeah I don't know pretty much anything about movies of that age. 

Recommend me one to sell me exploring this kind of thing.

40 out of 70 for me. I saw many of those old black and white ones from the 30's in particular when I was teenager and there was always a Saturday night double bill starting around 11pm. I've probably seen a few more to be honest that didn't leave a lasting impression on me.
