Moucherot's List Of Horrors

Hi Folks,

I'm a big fan of Horror and this is my list of all the horror-stuff I've seen so far. My definition of Horror is rather broad, so you might find some titles included that others would have left out.

The list consists of great classics but you'll also find some oddball-titles you might not have heard of. Still... I need to watch more as there are still some classics missing.

Other titles are simply connected to horror-topics but the thrill-fear-disgust usually evoked by a horror-film might not be in the foreground.

I will add some ratings and little texts to the titles.

Please comment and leave recommendations. That's what this list is for.

Thanks in advance. :)

P.S.: This list is and always will be (due to my passion for the genre) a work in progress.
