Film-makers, performers, genre authorities and selected high-profile fans count down the most chilling moments in cinematic history. Not just from horror films, but from such thrillers as Wait Until Dark (1967) and Jaws (1975) and such science-fiction films as The Terminator (1984) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). This entertaining and authoritative special, originally telecast for 5 nights leading up to Halloween 2004, has gone beyond seasonal programming to become one of the Bravo cable network's most popular and oft-encored specials.

I watched this mini-series when it originally aired around Halloween time of last year and was quite impressed by how entertaining it was. It's very different in tone from the list specials that are shown constantly on VH1 all the time. Despite some of the commentators making occasional jokes here and there, this is much more serious (and more interesting) than the VH1 list specials. Among the interviewees are Clive Barker, Bruce Campbell, John Carpenter, Courtney Cox, Wes Craven, Sean S. Cunnigham, Joe Dante, Stephen King, Leonard Maltin, George A. Romero, Tom Savini, Stan Winston and best of all, Jennifer Tilly who shows her amusing sense of humor and odd charm. If you are a big horror movie fan or are just a fan of movies in general, you should enjoy this. I'm giving it a nine out of ten since I didn't fully agree with the list.
