Damon Heine: 1st Post

This is the first time I've done this, so I'm going to address something that needs to be addressed.

My top ten horror films of all time:

10. Nosferatu(1922); the oldest movie on the list, but it laid the path for every single vampire(not counting the Twilight series) movie to be made.

9.Dawn of the Dead(1978); "Night of the Living dead" may steal all the thunder by being the first of its kind, but George A. Romero's follow up cemented the genre in popular culture. Speaking of which...

8. 28 days later(2002); the zombie genre is reinvented in a truly unnerving plague film set in future Great Britain.

7.The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(1974); forget the gory 2003 remake. This is what began the slasher genre. Even though not much blood is shown, the plot is weird and creepy enough to stay with you long after you first see it.

6.Poltergeist(1982); The same director from "Chainsaw massacre", Tobe Hooper, outdoes himself in an eerie supernatural thriller.

Tune in wednesday when I complete the countdown of my recommended horror films.
