HONORABLE MENTION: I couldn’t forget the funniest “horror” movie ever! I put “horror” in quotation marks because I tend to think of this movie as comedy. That just happens to contain zombies. It’s funny, I didn’t find what Shaun did romantic at all. I would have left my boyfriend/girlfriend/husband behind in a heartbeat. (Not my cat, though. I just have to figure out the logistics of running from a zombie horde with a cat carrier.)
So if you have a hankering for a pub called the Winchester, beer, juke boxes, stepdads you don’t particually like, cricket bats, video games, flatulant friends who you can play video games with, and loving your Mum, this will make you want to kill some zombies with old records. I know I do!

And my #1 favorite horror movie of all time is Dracula (1979).

Starring Frank Langella, Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence, and Kate Nelligan.

This was the first horror movie I ever saw and it made an impact. I was really young — maybe 4 or 5 — and my parents were out for the evening. The babysitter was not paying attention to what I was watching on the TV in my parent’s bedroom. It was my horror-movie awakening. I’ve seen better versions of Dracula, but this was my first, and you always remember your first. It was also the first “sex scene” I’d ever watched — it had flying and lasers and was set to a John Williams soundtrack and it set the bar unfortunately high for my poor husband. (I’m still waiting on the lasers.)
So, if you have a hankering for handsome Romanian counts, ships, sea storms, cliff-top mansions that double as insane asylums, drinking human blood, Laurence Freakin’ Olivier, SEX LASERS, evil vampires burning to ashes, and capes flying away in the wind, this may turn you on.
Thanks for reading my 15 favorite horror movies of all time. I hope you enjoyed it. 
Happy Nighthmares!

#2 of my favorite horror movies of all time is The Lost Boys (1987).
Starring Jason Patrick, the two Corey’s (Haim and Feldman), Kiefer Sutherland, and Jaime Gertz.
The soundtrack for this movie is forever scorched into my brain. I know every song- nay! Every lyric! This movie is my “happy place” movie. No matter what’s going on in my life, I can watch this movie and I am happy. It’s my horror movie constant. I love every one of the characters, from Grandpa to the Frog Brothers. And it has my favourite closing line of any movie EVER: “One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach… all the damn vampires.”
So if you have a hankering for Santa Carla, boardwalks, teenage vampires with names like “Marko”, oiled-up saxophone players, a hippie girl named Star, horror comics, motorcycle races, hounds of hell, sunken hotels, and death by deer antlers, this beautiful 80s horror movie will take you to your happy place.

#3 of my favorite horror movies of all time is The Shining (1980).
Starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Cruthers, and Danny Lloyd.
No list of favorite horror movies would be complete without this masterpiece of modern horror. “Here’s Johnny!” is one of the most memorable lines in horror movie history. (And let’s not forget “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”) Thank you, Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick, and Jack Nicholson for giving us one of the scariest movies I have ever seen.
If you have a hankering for psychic little boys, insane writers, haunted hotels built on Indian burial grounds, Scatman Cruthers, creepy twins, naked crones in bathtubs, ghost bartenders, REDRUM, fire axes, cascades of blood, hedge-mazes, snowcats, questionable husbands, and freezing to death, stop what you’re doing right now and go watch this immediately!
(And if this movie doesn’t scare you, you’re a robot.)

#4 of my favorite horror movies of all time is The Bride of Frankenstein (1935).
Staring Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester, Colin Clive, and Ernest Thesiger.
I love black and white classics! And you don’t get much more classic than this. When will mad scientists ever learn? Playing god never works out and innocent people always end up drowned or burnt or whatever. Whenever I watch this movie, I always feel bad for the poor monster. All he wanted was some undead piece of tail. And the line “She hate me! Like others!” is so sad. It reminds me of the relationship I have with my monster- sorry, I mean “husband”.
So if you have a hankering for Boris Karloff, burning windmills, mobs, dungeons, gypsy families, violins, blind hermits, storms, kidnapping, and bringing people back from the dead, you can’t get much better than this!
