A History of Horror

I'm taking you on a journey of terror from the end of the XIX century up until now. Monster movies, sci-fi horror, psychological horror, slasher movies, supernatural horror, horror comedies, horror fantasy and, of course, pure horror movies, including undisputed classics, as well as some more rare and obscure ones.

Note: The list contains only horror movies that I have seen (including my vote and sorted chronologically). I am looking forward to your suggestions and recommendations.
