Those were the days! The 1980s were the real breakthrough decade for the Horror Movie.

This is the Decade that gave us all our great Horror Icons:
Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers, Pinhead and Chucky!

It was also a great time for Monster Movies, especially little creatures like Gremlins, Critters, Ghoulies, Creeps and Trolls.
But also the Big Ones: Alien and The Predator.


Key Elements of the 80s Horror:

Mainly the 80s Horror was dominated by the Slasher Movie in the vein of Friday the 13th, and a very large number of the 80s Horrormovies were just copying this formula.

Thanks to the new market of Home Video Entertainment the underground of B-movies was flourishing, and due to the big success of movies like Dawn of the Dead a new type of movies entered the scene: The Gore Movie.

The most prominent examples of that time were the Italian Zombie and Cannibal Movies like Anthropophagus, Zombi 2, Hell of the Living Dead, Nightmare City, House by the Cemetery and of course Cannibal Holocaust.

The brutal violence and graphic splatter effects of this movies even led to banning in some countries, resulting in the infamous 'Video Nasties' list in the UK.

Besides the already mentioned movies this list contained most notoriously The Evil Dead, which was considered one of the most violent films of its time, but soon became an absolute cult favourite.


The 80s were also the Heyday of the Practical Special Effects.
Movies like The Thing, Scanners, American Werewolf or The Fly were real showcases of this professional craftwork.



The Masters of Horror:

While Stephen King was already established as the King of Horror, a new dark lord entered the scene: Clive Barker. Not only were his books a real treat for the Horror Fans, but also is his movie Hellraiser a very underrated masterpiece and one of the best serious Horror Movies of the Decade.

But regarding Movies there can only be one true Master of 80s Horror: John Carpenter.
To me The Thing is the Best Horror Movie of All Time, but I also fancy The Fog and Prince of Darkness very much. As a Horror Fan you just have to love his atmospheric and stylish Classic Horror Films.

Another great Master of dark cinema who bloomed in the 80s is David Cronenberg. Also known as the King of Venereal Horror, his films have a very unique mood and always deal with some kind of mutation or transformation - Best Example: The Fly.

Further important key figures of Horror cinema in the 80s were:
George A. Romero, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Tom Holland and Ken Russell.

Not to forget that the 80s also gave us these 2 brilliant directors:
James Cameron and Michael Mann



My personal Top Ten Horror movies from this Decade:

1) The Thing
2) Re-Animator
3) Fright Night
4) The Blob
5) The Fly
6) Prince of Darkness
7) Hellraiser
8) Night of the Creeps
9) Creepshow
10) Evil Dead

Special Nods to: Nightmare, The Hitcher, House 2, Return of the Living Dead, The Keep
and of course ALIENS!

After the poor 90s the Zeros have been a great decade for horror movies!
There was a real boom of fresh new horror, and it was really hard to pick the top 100 as there are simply too many good horror movies in the 2000s years.
I also included a few movies from end 90s because either they were released (or widely known) later, or made some genre-defining entry into the new decade.

Great Horror directors who arose from this decade:
Guillermo del Toro, Jaume Balagueró,
Lucky McKee, Christopher Smith
and above all Alexandre Aja and James Wan


Landmarks of the 00s Horror:

* The discovery of Asian Horror made an enormous impact, thanks to movies like Ringu, Audition or Battle Royale

* The Blair Witch Project brought us the birth of a new subgenre: The Found Footage Film

* M. Night Shyamalan made his remarkable debut with The Sixth Sense

* The Spanish Horror establishes as a very strong constant in the genre, with directors like Guillermo del Toro, Alejandro Amenábar and Jaume Balagueró.

* Daniel Boyle gave us the new breed of fast moving Zombies with 28 days later.

* The New French Extremity wave of hardcore horror shook the genre up for good, thanks to High Tension, Inside and Martyrs. But mainly it was Gaspar Noé with his Irréversible who started the buzz.

* James Wan surprised us with the big success of Saw, which spawned so many sequels

* Eli Roth initiated the onset of the questionable subgenre of Torture Porn with his movie Hostel.

* The British Horror is back - with a vengeance! Absolute Delights for the Horror Fan were The Descent, Eden Lake and Triangle.

* Paranormal Activity was a big surprise hit with many successors

* And finally Sam Raimi delighted us again with Drag Me to Hell



My personal Top Ten Horror movies from this Decade:

1) The Descent
2) Drag me to Hell
3) Blair Witch Project
4) Rec
5) Ringu or The Eye or Shutter (can't decide)
6) Triangle
7) Jeepers Creepers
8) Dead End
9) High Tension
10) Eden Lake

Special nods to: Bubba Ho Tep, Cabin Fever, Frailty, The Mist, Mirrors, The Host and of course Shaun of the Dead!
+ Very big nod to Donnie Darko!

It's no secret that the 1990s were a seriously bad decade for Horror Movies.
To make it to 100 on this list, i had to include also rather mediocre movies
(and some only for their trash value) - so don't expect only great movies on this list.

But gladly this decade had also some very good things to offer for the Horror Connoisseur!


Key figures of 90s Horror:

One cannot deny that the Horror of the 1990s was ruled by Stephen King, not only in books but also in movies.
Besides tons of King adaptations the 90s brought us the introduction of some real masters of cinema:
Peter Jackon, Alex de la Iglesia and David Fincher.

Although David Lynch dropped some masterpieces since the 70s, it was in the 90s when he really rose to the king of dark & disturbing nightmare movies.

Last not least Darren Aronofsky made his entry into the scene,
a brilliant filmmaker and master of psychological horror.


Landmarks for the Horror Movie in the 90s:

* James Cameron brought us T2 and with it the birth of breathtaking CGI Special Effects. Shortly after, Jurassic Park manifested those awesome Effects in all our minds.

* Peter Jackson dropped the Atomic Bomb of Splatter History with Braindead, my absolute favourite splatter movie of all times.

* David Lynch opened new dimensions in TV Series with his brilliant Twin Peaks.

* Sam Raimi back in full effect with the hilarious Army of Darkness.

* Francis Ford Coppola delivered one of the most beautiful dark movies ever with Dracula.

* The much beloved cult Series 'The X Files'.

* Oliver Stone screwed our minds with the controversial Natural Born Killers, which was hated a lot at that time - nevertheless today a classic.

* Wes Craven revived the Slashermovie with Scream, which triggered an avalanche of similar movies and sequels.

* David Fincher turned on a really dark tune with his masterpiece Seven.

* Michael Haneke came to international attention with his very disturbing Funny Games, although he already had an impact in Europe with Benny's Video.

* Although Quentin Tarantino is not really a Horror director,
his arrival into the world of cinema branded the 90s like no one else did.


My personal Top Ten Horror movies from this Decade :

1) Braindead (Dead Alive)
2) Bride of Chucky
3) El dia de la bestia
4) Army of darkness
5) Dracula
6) In the mouth of madness
7) Mimic
8) Nightwatch
9) Starship Troopers
10) Cure

Some Special nods to:
From dusk till dawn, Candyman, Cube and of course The Silence of the Lambs.

It covers Voodoo zombies of the 30's and 40's, Alien enslaved zombies of the 50's, Romero style Living Dead and the Infected zombies of the 21st century. Most films have 5 or more stars, with a few campy ones thrown in that are fun to laugh at, a few for their historical significance, plus some documentaries on Zombie films.

This is not a list of every horror film that I've ever seen, I'm not a huge fan of slasher, elimination or torture films so I have left them out of this list for example, but I've left on some of the more popular runner-ups as they've fallen out of my top 50 and titles I've seen on other people's lists for comparison, top 350 style. Some might not consider all of these titles as 'horror films' but each to their own.

Use the filters to narrow down the list. Links include relevant films and extra info. I'll be constantly editing this list, as I watch new films or to include classics.

[Sept. 2016 Note: I recently decided to expand this list to include television shows, and anime/animation.]

Also, I highly recommend the NoSleep Podcast, The Wicked Library, Campfire Theater, and The Lift, if you're into getting your horror in podcasts.

Disclaimer:
Horror films get criticized to death (Define scary). This list only includes films, shows, and animaiton I've seen, and the rankings are from a combo of mainly my preferences in style, production quality, creativity, and acting.

FISQ stands for fear, intensity, storyline, and quality). I'll also mention if I haven't seen one of the films yet.

As the world goes Zombie crazy once more with the release of Brad Pitt's World War Z, I decided to create this list of my top 30 zombie films that I have seen over the years of being a horror fan. The traditional zombie is a reanimated corpse that is slow moving but very aggressive, which can be best seen in George A Romero's Living Dead Trilogy. But as the the horror genre evolved so did the zombies, giving rise to fast zombies. The fast zombies are more like living infected and don't follow the traditional zombie traits, but they are still zombies, best seen in 28 Days Later and REC. Any recommendations are welcomed.

Question:“What is the point of large lists?” Lists like this have a "Refine list" feature (located in the right hand side of the page), which is a powerful filtering tool. With this tool one can exclude all of the films that one has already "rated"(seen), or that are in the >>>>> "watchlist", or exclude films that have been rated below lets say 6/10 stars, etc. With this list you get the ability to filter the list any way you like... to drill down on the exact content that you are looking for. All filters can be used at the same time, in any combination.

Horror, especially backwoods horror and creature features, does rely on a very large man to increase the already considerable threat.

"Who Says Horror Can Not Be Art?" My favorite modern horror films are some examples which I think fit the description of "Beautifully Brutal Horror" The best horror films recently rated and recommended are both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. There are truly shocking moments which disturbingly can suddenly engross you with stunning visuals or an elegant, overwhelming atmosphere. Horror fans will appreciate the extraordinary camera work and the many talented film makers who continue to create art with this beautifully brutal combination. These are films the Horror Genre should be proud of.

Film or TV containing an occult detective[1], usually involving someone in law enforcement or an academic or a journalist who either investigates a mundane event that leads them into dark and strange depths or they are already interested in the topic and specifically seek it out.

Intriguingly, while this cross-genre is a popular source for film and especially TV, most of the original characters that inspired them haven't themselves been adapted, like Carnacki[2] (Martin Hesselius or John Silence or Flaxman Low or Jules de Grandin or John Thunstone or Simon Iff or pretty much everyone except Van Helsing). It seems that with the success of Sherlock and Steampunk or Victorian/Edwardian fiction being popular now might be the time - someone should phone Mark Gatiss.

See also: I have an archaeological adventurer list, which has some crossover with this list, as well as being another well-known archetype. I also started the keyword occult detective on here and added most of the titles to it.

In space no one can hear you scream


... unless you are in a spaceship or you've left your suit mike open or the filmmakers don't give a damn about physics and decide it'd make a cool scene.

Basically horror films that take place onboard spaceships or on alien (and often hostile) planets - a sub-genre of the sci-fi horror cross-genre. It does see to grade into sci-fi action or thrillers at the edges (especially where people are being hunted down and killed off one-by-one, for example).

Obviously Alien had a big impact on the scene, leading to numerous cheap rip-offs, but there is another phenomena which About.com highlight: "In horror movies, going into space seems to be the equivalent of a sitcom adding a cute little kid to the cast in a last-ditch effort to revitalize the series" and you can see plenty of examples here - once you've jumped the shark in your horror franchise where do you go? Space, that's where. I expect Final Destination 8 to be sub-titled: "Final Frontier".
http://horror.about.com/od/horrorthemelists/tp/outerspacehorror.htm

I do love such films - many moons ago when I was a much smaller Emperor for a birthday treat I asked to watch a couple of videos - Alien and Dark Star. However, this was back when VCRs were just appearing - they were as big as a medium-sized herbivore and there were only a few thousand in the country, so my Dad had to haul home the one from his school and then we had to venture out to the dark and seedy video rental shop (that managed to cling on even after a large video rental store opened up down the road, just because of the atmosphere and selection of movies).

Also-rans: There are some that didn't quite make the list: Lifeforce, as not much of the horror elements are set in space, and Dark City, as the space angle is the twist ending and doesn't influence the rest of the film.

Feel free to comment, but you better have credible reasoning for why someone is better than these, as I've given extremely objective and systemized critiquing to why these actors deserve this spot. If you can provide said reasoning, I'll stop everything I'm doing, check out the film, and update this list if I agree.

Lot's of horror movies are worth a watch but that's about it. This list consists of horror films I like enough to own and watch at least somewhat regularly. Not all are necessarily scary. Some are classics and some I just have a soft spot for but all are films I have enjoyed many times over the years. (or intend to) Some of you may feel a few belong on my Overrated Horror list, but these ones don't get old to me. Just my opinion obviously. Hopefully there are at least a few on the list you haven't seen and are inclined to take a chance on. (and hopefully you like them!) This list will be updated from time to time when I find new additions. Here they are in order of release.

The strangest horror movies out there. The kind where you get genuinely worried for the sanity of the film-makers, then you start worrying you've gone mad and imagined it all. Or you might question the wisdom of their going for an unlikely monster - a pinata? Is that wise? Apparently not.

The removed: Angel Above - The Devil Below, another "killer vagina" film, this one flagged as porn so it can't be added to the list.

Films that generally fall into the "zombie" category, which for this list I'm keeping pretty loose, so as well as your classic zombie movies, it includes what I'm calling contagious violence, like the 28 X Later films, and the vengeful dead.

The British zombie movie is important in the history of the genre because they helped keep the flame alive and would, in turn, influence George Romero who was inspired by them (and many others movies) when coming up with Night of the Living Dead, as explained by Jennnifer Dotson in her Ma thesis:


In the fifties, science fiction had surpassed horror in popularity in Hollywood, and Gothic monsters such as vampire, werewolves, and mummies were traded in for giant insects, killer vegetables, and alien invaders. After the influx of poorly constructed zombie-themed films in the 1950s failed at the box office, most Hollywood producers abandoned the zombie altogether. When it seemed the living dead were indeed a dying breed in Hollywood, the zombie film was given a new life abroad. As a result of Hollywood's cold shoulder, the zombie was relocated and began to flourish in other countries, particularly in Great Britain and Mexico. British films like Doctor Blood's Coffin (1960) and The Earth Dies Screaming (196), although low budget, helped the zombie genre gain popularity in Great Britain during a horror revival there in the 1960s. Hammer Studios, the leading producer of horror films in Great Britain, released a zombie film in 1966 called Plague of the Zombies. Although the film is not well know, having been overshadowed by more successful Hammer endeavours, it is notable for giving the zombie an international stage.


Given the fact that there was a small homegrown tradition of such films before NotLD, it is odd that it took so long for we Brits to get in on the trend, once the game changed and the sub-genre too off, as outlined by British horror historian MJ Simpson:


it took a long time for zombie films to take hold in the UK. If we skip over the 'walking dead' in the Terence Fisher sci-fi opus The Earth Dies Screaming and those in Hammer's pre-Romero The Plague of the Zombies, we find (unless we're prepared to really bend the definition) a complete dearth of the living dead in British film-making until Andrew Parkinson's I, Zombie: The Chronicles of Pain in 1998. Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s there were zombie films made in the USA and Europe but the closest we got to British zombies was Jorg Grau and his Manchester Morgue, which was shot in the UK but is, in real terms, a Spanish film. It just never occurred to anyone making British horror features - at any level - to try to put Romero-esque zombies into British genre culture.


He then goes on to touch on the two key British "zombie" movies:


after that brace of indie undead, it was two much bigger studio productions which really established the UK as a suitable home for zombies. 28 Days Later was released in 2002; Shaun of the Dead two years later - yet even at this short remove they seem to have appeared together, solidly establishing the United Kingdom as a place where the dead walk.


They weren't just locally important but would help revitalise the whole sub-genre and are a vital part of the push that helped make zombies mainstream and now almost ubiquitous.

What do people see in these? Here's a few "horror" movies that seem to be highly recommended/regarded from several of my sources, but didn't deliver the goods in my opinion. Comments to explain why they are rated so high are welcomed!
*** Obviously these are my own opinions. If you disagree feel free to leave a message. If you can think of other overrated horror please leave a comment as well! Thanks for looking either way!

I watch a lot of movies and I love to hit up a ton of horror movies every September/October. Below is my list of top horror movie by year(though not all would classify as horror). I include any type of sub-genre. Horror-Comedy, Space Horror, Thrillers.

If you have any suggestions for me to watch in years with a weak selection or with no selection at all. Leave a comment.


Thanks.

Films that contain Nazi occultism, although this may grade into Nazi superscience or the supernatural where the dividing line is tricky to discern (the latter because the pseudoscience required is so extreme it almost conforms to Clarke's Third Law about science and magic), so it can touch on secret Third Reich bases in Antractica, Nazi UFOs and associated craziness.

Thanks to publications like Morning of the Magicians, there is an undercurrent of suspicion that the Nazis were up to all sorts of occult hi-jinks (beyond the well-known activities of the Ahnenerbe) and these films take that ball and run with it.

In his study of James Herbert's novel The Spear, Nick Freeman looks at the history of our interest in the Nazis, from the relative tame in the post-War years to the lurid in the 60s, with the occult aspects rising in popularity in the 70s:


Nazi occult experimentation may not have offered the same opportunities for pornographers as death camps and military brothels, but this did not mean that its treatment was any less sensational. Works such as Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier’s Le Matin des Magiciens (1960), Trevor Ravenscroft’s The Spear of Destiny (1972), and J. H. Brennan’s still more outlandish Occult Reich (1974) captured the popular imagination. Ravenscroft’s book is still in print, as is its sequel, The Mark of the Beast (1990), and a paperback reprint of Le Matin des Magiciens claimed a million copies had been sold by 1971 alone. All were fixated by supposedly secret or suppressed histories: the 1976 reprint of Brennan’s book boasts that it deals ‘in facts – but facts that orthodox historians ignore.’ Since the appearance of Nicholas Goodrich-Clark’s The Occult Roots of Nazism (1985), such works seem poorly researched and hysterically argued, but they were accorded considerable popular interest in the mid-1970s when Herbert was writing The Spear.


However, he does point out that the Nazi/occult mix can be dated back to Dennis Wheatley's 1941 novel Strange Conflict, the same date as the first film on this list.

References: Nick Freeman "'A decadent appetite for the lurid'?: James Herbert, The Spear and 'Nazi Gothic'"

Further reading: The Occult Roots of Nazism, as mentioned in the quote, this is one of the best researched and takes a level-headed approach to the topic as does Arktos: The Polar Myth in Science, Symbolism, and Nazi Survival. Raymond Sickinger's "Hitler and the Occult: The Magical Thinking of Adolf Hitler" is a good quick overview of the debate. Adam Shreve's "'Beunos Noches, Mein Fuhrer': A Look at Nazism in Popular Culture" is a pretty broad look at the influence of the Third Reich on our media. Why the Nazis and the Occult Plotlines in 'The Devil's Rock' Work so Well, a short piece on Nazi occultism in movies and why it is so effective.

See also: My Horrors of War and Nazi zombies/zombie Nazis lists, the latter in particular, as there is nothing Nazi occultists like to more than raise the dead for their nefarious purposes.

Links: TV Tropes have a number of pages that cover this: Those Wacky Nazis, Stupid Jetpack Hitler and most relevantly Ghostapo.

Others: Hardkor '44 still seems to be in the pipeline.

Inspired by this piece from the Garudian:


Interest in homegrown horror was rekindled by Danny Boyle's film 28 Days Later in 2002 and grew with the success of Shaun of the Dead, Neil Marshall's The Descent and Christopher Smith's two films Creep and Severance.


So this list deals with the last decade (and counting) revival in the fortunes of the British horror movie (you can monitor new releases here, and there is one for short films), I'm sure the creative people were out there but it was 28 Days Later than got the purse strings loosened. Defining "British" is always going to be subjective, Hammer, for example, made a return in 2007 but some of the films they've produced have been co-productions filmed abroad (like Let Me In), but we'll include them as this this list is partly to show the strength of the British film industry when it comes to horror films. For that reason I will also include movies filmed in the UK as it all helps bolster the home-grown efforts (like World War Z).

Of course, that isn't to say that all these films are great, some of them are awful, but the level of quality is higher than I've found on most of my other lists.

Also making 2002 a cut-off is pretty arbitrary as it includes Dog Soldiers and Deathwatch that can't have benefited much from the 28 Days Later effect, and it excludes many interesting films that pre-date it, like The Bunker and Lighthouse, but it is still a good line in the sand if we want to look at recent British horror films and it does seem to be a genuine phenomena.

See also: Contagious violence, it shouldn't be a surprise, given the film that kickstarted everything that a lot of the films here also feature over there but the sub-genre (and zombie films) are easy to do with simple make-up and effects, and there is also an explosion in them in general. Also hoodie horror films feature strongly as a reflection of modern concerns. In addition there are quite a few films that fit into the backwoods horror and folk horror, both of which are undergoing a resurgence too (both of which can also be done on a limited budget). In fact, in most sub-genres I've been tracking, a big hit film has combined with improved distribution and cheaper technology to give a spike in the number of films produced.

Links: British horror revival blog from MJ Simpson, the co-founder of SFX magazine and the author of the upcoming book Urban Terrors: New British Horror Cinema 1997-2008, a guide to the 114 key films of that period. I only found it part-way through making the list but it has proved invaluable for filling in the gaps here (it also helped confirm I was on the right lines with the list name), so if you like this list follow his blog and be sure to pick up his book (if it goes well there is chance of a sequel - there are clearly going to be more films in the few years after 2008 than in the decade before). He has also provided round-ups of the releases in 2010 and 2011, noting that in 2001 there were 3 British horror films but in 2010 there were 48 (the 2010 round-up only includes 32 because he discovered more afterwards) and in 2011 there were 41 (not counting further revisions), my count below is different but the proportions are similar. There were more again in 2012, 14 of them zombie films, more than one a month and more than the annual total for most years (in fact so many I made a list for British zombie films). Which does flag up that something is going on here. Frightfest is also worth keeping an eye on, it is the UK's leading horror film festival (I have yet to attend but I will one day) with a strong focus on British movies and, even if you can't make it, because it is run in conjunction Film4, they run a week's worth of films and interviews on their TV channel (it is where I first heard about Kill List, for example).

The count: I have gone through and counted all the full length British horror films and put them into a spreadsheet and graph.

Which really does show an upwards trend, from less than one a month to one ever 3 days, just in the noughties - rapidly passing the levels of the boom period for British horror: the 60s and 70s. If you look back further you'll see that horror film production in the 90s were often down to similar levels to the early 50s when we were shaking off the effects of a world war (the chilling effect of the video nasty era? after all hardline BBFC chief James Ferman retired in 1999 and it was only then that a lot of the banned movies started to be passed uncut). A really impressive upswing , although it makes it impossible to keep up with all of them even if you wanted to. However, the number do suggest the renaissance was under way before 28DL, even if the success of films like it (Shaun of the Dead, etc.) have inspired film-makers and made financiers take British horror films seriously, helping to build momentum. I'd also flag up my comments above, as the growth in some horror sub-genres parallels what we see here, suggesting that the ease of film-making and distribution now means there will be more films but there is also clear evidence for successful films have an important effect on the types of films being made (the best example of zombie films - the first 3 Romero films created a spike in zombie movies with a lag of a year or two - I have rather a fine graph to prove my point).

I did also stumble across this piece about horror fiction and Tory governments:


A cursory glance at the points where horror fiction did enjoy periods of resurgence do tend to follow an upward graph with Tory fortunes.

...

Now, after two years of government by coalition of the Conservatives and the Lib Dems, horror is on the rise again.


So we can see a big spike in British horror films after 2010 (a jump of 50%) but there is usually a lag of a few years between inspiration and realisation, plus the Thatcher/Major years (1979-1997) saw a real dip in output between high points of the 60s/70s and the current upswing. So I'm not buying this when it comes to films, and if we are talking about fiction then... show me your numbers - I've shown you mine after all.

Caveats: There could be a recentist bias to an internet movie data base but IMDB has been going since 1990, so you'd imagine that'd be smoothed out by now and the British horror film industry isn't that large, but does attract a lot of rabid fans, so you'd imagine it'd be difficult for too many films to fall through the gaps. The opposite might also be a problem - there might be a bias against more recent movies as it can take a while for information to trickle through. However, this seems to largely apply to tagging and working out what sub-genres films fit into which are user added features and can be a bit arbitrary and subjective, while the location of production company is going to be a well-defined fact and much more likely to be properly registered here when the film is added (I have found a couple of examples so far when compiling this list, but not many). So I suspect neither is so serious to make a mockery of the numbers, as is a big enough sample that a few films won't make any difference (famous last words, I'm sure). One factor I do think might have an impact on the current year peak is that I've already seen some unreleased films shifted back to the following year or just whenever. So I expect the patter of each year is the peak will grow, as the full slate of films in production becomes clear, and then it will drop a bit as some get rescheduled or disappear into development hell, never to be seen again. Which means the current year is always going to be provisional until we reach the end and perhaps do a little tidy up too, so there might be a drop off of a dozen or so, but that might be compensated for after the inclusion of some films that might not get listed here until they're released.

Other films: There are some adult films that I'm wary of listing as they seem to cause problems for the list: Cathula 2: Vampires of Sex.

Length: Sorry it is a long list and this might be a little off-putting but you can use the filters to break it down if you don't want to browse through all the pages (even if I recommend you do it at least once). So you can, for example, rank only the feature films by quality if you were perhaps looking some of the better movies on the list to watch (even then you should do your homework, because some obscure films don't have many votes which can lead to people gaming the system).

Videos: I've tried to provide links to online videos of films where they appear to be official, if you want me to add a video or remove/swap a link then leave a note in the comments.
