The IMDb 'Top 250' is a list of the most popular feature film on IMDB not a list of the 'best' films, new films will naturally get more votes than long forgot ones. If you would like to see an unbiased version, you can take a look at the unofficial Top 250 by clicking on this Link:

Each to their own, here's what my unofficial Top 250 would look like...
This is not a list of every horror film that ive ever seen, I'm not a huge fan of slasher, elimination or torture films so ive 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 for comparison, top 250 style. The top 50 are not in any particular order yet.
In fact, now you are here why not click the quiz on the right of the list and see how well you get on...
Where did Foster go?
The first half of this film is a beautiful story of humanities place in the world, about why should stop fighting with each other, end all war, throw our guns in the lake and live in peace and cooperation. You marvel at the cast of ape who in spite of being unable to speak and using made up sign language portray some real emotion.
The film slowly builds and build from an average film in to a great one, then from a great film into the possibility of being the best film you have ever seen, then for no reason at all of the apes learn to speak English overnight, despite many of them never seeing a human before, all of them pick up guns, and use them without any training, even those who were against using weapons and killing, and every female character is written out of the script. Without giving much away the second half of the film was beyond terrible.
It had so much potential to discuss war, crime, prisoners of war camps, the meaning of life, but instead rewrote the script and million times, until you feel like you are watching a different film. Frankly, between edits they actually forgot several of the main characters, I still cant figure out what happened to the token black guy, I cant believe that the actors put up with it.
Honestly, go and watch this film but as soon as you see Koba the bullet-proof ape, impervious to fire, charge a tank on his horse, throw whatever is left of your popcorn on the floor and leave thinking that you have just missed the end of an amazing film.
Rest Stop (2006)
An honest review
This movie is not a good movie, but the reviews are clearly divided. I hate people that tactical vote and this film is clearly a battle ground of false votes, it is not a 10 and it is certainly not a 1. I watched this film because it came up on several profile lists of favourite horror films. I watched it. I get it. There is no great unexpected twist plot or unresolved issues, the acting is not bad, nor is the camera work, the sound track is in keeping and the plot is OK.
However, this film is a slow burner, you watch it and you think about it, and keep thinking about it, until you find yourself staring blankly out of the window. If you like to think, then watch this, if you chew gum then don't bother. I honestly could not decide what to give this movie, it breaks what ever your personal rating scale is, just for that fact I would give it a 6/10 and challenge anyone who enjoys rating films to watch it and grumble that your system can't handle it.
