Poll: Black & White Horror Movies (1961-1990)

Most early films were black and white but since the late 1960s, only a few mainstream films have been occasionally shot in black and white as an artistic choice.

While black and white horror films might not have the vibrant blood and guts, there is something to them that makes them as terrifying as anything made in color.

Which black and white movie released between 1961 and 1990 do you think was the scariest?

Minimum of 2,500 votes; IMDb rating of 5.0 or above.
