halloween horror friday

It’s going to take a couple of days to get back to speed, after a month of watching the Giants play October baseball. So there’s no Music Friday this week. I’m behind on TV … I haven’t watched a movie in a couple of weeks … I’ve got nothing. But it is Halloween, and so, taking my cue from MovieLens, I’ll offer a list o’ links. These are movies that MovieLens says fall into the “Horror” category, that I have rated at least 9 out of 10, and have written about on this blog. It’s a cheap way of cannibalizing myself. I’ll list them in chronological order.

Ones that I didn’t write about but which fit the other requirements:

  • Frankenstein (1931) 10/10
  • The Thing (From Another World) (1951) 9/10
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) 9/10
  • The Innocents (1961) 9/10
  • Jaws (1975) 10/10
  • Aliens (1986) 9/10
  • A Chinese Ghost Story (1987) 9/10
  • The Silence of the Lambs (1991) 9/10
