Here are 100 Bloody Great Horror Film Recommendations from Edgar Wright

village of the damned
The man behind horror hit ‘Shaun of the Dead’ gives you a perfect Halloween binge list.

A scary amount has already been said about the modern horror arthouse resurgence. You might even say this genre is rising from the grave, with the surprising box office success of Get Out, and horror flicks like It Follows and The Witch getting recognized alongside traditional dramas on the prestige festival circuit. The most recent horror sensation is the It remake, which has just become the highest-grossing horror film of all time. But It isn't available for streaming yet, and we all know that today's modern horrors are built on a long tradition of cinematic scares, so with Halloween weekend upon us, who better to turn to help plan our gory bingefests than Edgar Wright

Wright is a noted movie lover with a penchant for the spooky, and he has entered his own celebrated film into the modern horror-comedy canon with zombie flick Shaun of the Dead. He collaborated with curated movie streamers MUBI to put this chronological list (with a heavy '60s lean) together, making sure to note that trimming the list down to a mere 100 titles meant that some of his favorite horror-adjacent thriller and sci-fi films had to be left off. So, starting in 1922 with the vampire film that inspired undead flicks for generations to come, F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu, and bringing us all the way to last year's Korean zombie favorite, Yeon Sang-Ho's Train to Busan, here's a list that should keep you awake all weekend long and beyond.

  • 1922 - Nosferatu by F.W. Murnau
