Anyone seen this one. It's doing the rounds on my facebook at the moment as people post up how many films they've seen. I got 92 myself but wouldn't be at all surprised if some of the buffs here have seen them all as it's an unusually decent list for this sort of thing.

I've only seen 72 of the 100. Not bad, better than regular folks, but not up with the diehards.

90 out of 100 for me. And 2 of the 10 I haven't seen I own, just haven't watched yet.

That's actually a pretty respectable list.

Looking at that list, I haven't seen three of the titles (LET'S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH, MARTYRS and THE ORPHANAGE), but I've got copies of the latter two. It's a pretty respectable list; there are some titles I'd change (I'd switch out some of the more recent films for a couple of overlooked classics, for example), but mostly they're good choices.

The top 10 is as you would expect but a lot of great Art House Horror titles in that lot. Glad that The Beyond made 49 and it blows my fucking mind that Cannibal Holocaust is at 32.

The only film from that list I have yet to see is DEAD OF NIGHT. Pretty good list, glad to see POSESSION there.

You're gonna like this one, Baz, and not just for the Billy Idol theme song.

You have some great stuff left to watch Baz. But Martyrs is shite.

89.

and 2 I have on DVD, but not yet viewed.

Some of what I have not yet viewed, are ones I am not interested in. Such as Vampire films. They bore me, except for Fright Night (1985). I guess why that one works for me, is it doesn't take itself seriously. I'm also not too keen on post-2000 Asian Horror. During the time of films such as, "The Untold Story", I thought differently.

"Come and See", is horror? I recall it being an, "Artsy War film". Granted, War is hell, and all, there are more horrific war films than that.

I agree, a decent list, but, I'm still curious as to why the inclusion of, "Come and See". Might as well have had, "Men Behind the Sun" instead.

I have seen 92 of them. The 8 I haven't seen I either own on dvd and haven't watched yet. Or have seen parts of but never the entire film. Overall a pretty good list.

Interesting choice for this one, more harrowing than horror. I liked it, it is one of the most devastating war films ever made.

here is a trailer:

Growing up, I ate and breathed horror movies. Many of these on the Time Out list (including virtually everything after 1982-ish) I have seen fit to skip and many others I wish I had skipped.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think current horror movies suck and this is a shitty list.

It's not even that these titles are too (f)artsy--where the fuck are LEMORA and ALUCARDA?


Also, get off of my lawn.

I've seen 87 of them. Not a bad list, I was glad to see THE VANISHING on there. That film, a personal favorite, seems kinda forgotten these days. Of course I mean the original not that shitty remake - by the same director no less.

Society (1989)

Both of those are great films. God Told me too is very strange but one of Cohen's more underrated films. Plus it has a nice cameo from Andy Koffman. Society is a great film if you like practical FX work. Sadly I want to say all the dvd releases of it are out of print. I had it on a double feature dvd with Tobe Hoopers Spontanous Combustion. But some asshat stole the dvd.
