My favorite Horror/Thriller Movies of all timesby DhariaLezin | created - 02 Nov 2013 | updated - 03 Nov 2013 | Public
I am a huge fan of horror, but there are not many movies that actually have scared me, ones more than others. And some might not be as scary but I consider them quite good. So, here are some options if you want to be frightened or find some titles of horror that you didn't know. It is about all kinds of horror. I know there is still a lot to watch but I am on a good way. I'll fix the order later on.
