tales from the crypt 1972


Peter Cushing is my favorite old horror actor. And he’s really such a dear old fella in his interviews. Best friends with frequent horror co-star Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price.

Seriously, he’s a hero.

In celebration of Halloween, I’ve compiled a list of horror films from several different sub-genres along with links to their respective IMDB pages. Please note that the films listed below may contain scenes that some find triggering, disturbing, or upsetting; if you have any concerns over a film’s content, I highly encourage you to research it prior to watching in order to make as informed a choice as possible. 

PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR: films that inspire fear and tension by creating an unsettling atmosphere.

FEMALE-CENTRIC FILMS: horror movies featuring women in starring roles outside of the “final girl” trope.

GRAPHIC HORROR: films containing depictions of extreme acts, like heavy violence, body horror, and gore. Not recommended for those offended or disturbed by explicit, potentially-upsetting media.

HORROR ANTHOLOGIES: also known as “portmanteau films”, these movies contain multiple short segments that are sometimes connected by a main plot.

THRILLERS: scary stories with a suspenseful plot.

MOVIE MONSTERS: horror films starring a variety of creatures, from vampires and werewolves to Lovecraft monsters and evil clowns.

HORROR CLASSICS: definitive movies from the pre-1970’s horror era.

SUPERNATURAL HORROR: all things paranormal, ghosts and ghouls.

OCCULT AND POSSESSION: movies with rituals, demons, and possessed souls.

ZOMBIES: a category encompassing everything from Romero’s undead to the living infected.

FOUND FOOTAGE: movies comprised of camera footage filmed by hapless characters.

Hello again Tena! Would you happen to have more creepy lists or movies, short horror films, etc? I loved your last one!

Oh, gosh, this’ll be a tough one, I think.  I’ll try to include lots of movies that can be viewed in full on Youtube.


  1. Philosophy of a Knife (2008) - WARNING:  This is very strong material, and not for the squeamish.  It is based on real experiments conducted during World War II.  It is broken up into parts, and it is also a very long film.  I previously went over it in this post.
  2. Begotten (1990) - WARNING: I gave a little background on this film here.  This is a surreal, experimental film.  It is strange, disturbing, and not recommended for the squeamish.
  3. Faces of Death (1978) - WARNING:  While there is content in this film that was hoaxed, it also contains real footage from slaughterhouses, surgical procedures, and other scenes of real death.  It is absolutely not for the squeamish, and to view it is entirely at your own discretion.  There are links for a few of the sequels in this post.
  4. The Troma Youtube Channel - Troma has graced the internet with many of their cult classic films in full on Youtube.  They tend to get cheesy and goofy, but there’s also a lot of gore and grossouts galore!
  5. Hammer Horror - Assorted titles from the famed British studio.
  6. Scanners (1981)
  7. Re-Animator (1985)

Ten Great Horror Anthology Films To See Before You Die

An anthology film (also known as an omnibus film, package film, or portmanteau film) is a feature film consisting of several different short films, often tied together by only a single theme, premise, or brief interlocking event (often a turning point). Sometimes each one is directed by a different director. These differ from “revue films” such as Paramount on Parade (1930)—which were common in Hollywood in the early sound film era to show off their stars and related vaudeville-style acts—composite films, and compilation films.

Sometimes there is a theme, such as a place (e.g. New York Stories, Paris, je t'aime), a person (e.g. Four Rooms), or a thing (e.g. Twenty Bucks, Coffee and Cigarettes), that is present in each story and serves to bind them together. Two of the earliest films to use the form were Edmund Goulding’s Grand Hotel (1932), released by MGM with an all-star cast; and Paramount’s If I Had a Million (also 1932), featuring segments helmed by a number of directors.

Sometimes there is one “top-level” story, a framing device, which leads into the various “sub-stories”, as in Tales of Manhattan (1942), Flesh and Fantasy (1943), Dead of Night (1945), and The Illustrated Man (1968). Dead of Night helped to popularize the format for horror films—although they had existed as far back as Unheimliche Geschichten (1919)—and British company Amicus made several such films in the 1960s and 1970s.
