When the holiday season begins, so does the endless stream of nostalgic Christmas movies. Some people look forward to watching classics like “A Miracle On 34th Street” or “It’s A Wonderful Life” as much as they do unwrapping presents under the tree.
Halloween is no different, except instead of family-friendly fare about yuletide cheer, All Hallow’s Eve is precluded by a month of cable channel slasher marathons and strategic theatrical releases. But horror movies are bigger than October; these films are relevant year round, with a globe-spanning fandom and hundred-million dollar franchises. In fact, interest in horror movies has grown steadily over the past few decades, with box office gross from the genre nearly doubling from a 2.79 percent market share in 1995 to 5.14 percent in 2016.
Whether laughably bad or genuinely thought-provoking, horror movies are designed to do one thing: scare audiences. PrettyFamous, a research entertainment site powered by Graphiq, compiled this list of the greatest horror films of all time.
To qualify for the list, movies had to have at least 25,000 IMDb votes and a genre classification of “horror.” Movies were then ranked based on their Smart Rating: a score out of 100 that takes into account a movie’s Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer and Audience Score, IMDb rating, Metacritic Metascore, Gracenote rating and the domestic inflation-adjusted box office gross. The movies are ranked from lowest to highest Smart Rating, with the best horror movie taking the No. 1 spot. When ties occur, the films are ordered by their inflation-adjusted box office gross and then by alphabetic order.
