top horror film list of the day
About.com's Classic Movies section has an extensive list of quality horror films for Halloween viewing. It relies mostly on old-school (pre-1980) horror, with a heavy concentration on the classic Universal flicks like Dracula and Frankenstein, but it does give the nod to films like Dawn of the Dead and 1982's Poltergeist. (Although I might question the inclusion of The Day the Earth Stood Still and Forbidden Planet--both monumentally great films, and not without a creepiness factor, but each fairly solid science fiction, not horror.) Here's About guide Brad Lang's highly credible personal Top 10 list.
