Today I want to share with you my top five horror movies of all time. I’ve been in love with films since I can remember. I was shocked, when I saw this amazing works of art. So, without further comments let’s get to it!

5.- John Carpenters, Halloween.

Produced with a low budget, John Carpenter, managed to create one of the most shocking horror films. I still listen to it’s powerful score, Donald Plesence’s monologues, and remember that revealing first sequence.  I loved the way the script was written, it has a clear first, second, and third act that leaves anyone breathless. Without a dought, this film will continue to amaze audiences through generations.

4.- Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

Now I’m feeling speechless. This next film didn’t let me sleep for months. It has everything a great movie needs to be perfect: a great screenplay, production design, acting (Jack Nicholson), soundtrack, visual effects, directing, you name it! You will never forget the word “redrum”.

3.- Jonathan Demme, The Silence of the Lambs.

Anthony Hopkins gave me chills when he took the rol of Hannibal Lecter. Based on the acclaimed novel by Thomas Harris, this film is one of the most disturbing psychological thrillers, that left many people completely terrified. Jodi Foster delivered an amazing perfomance as agent Starling, who got envolved in a horrific investagation, that requiered the knowlage, and skills of “Hannibal the cannibal”, to solve the brutal murders of “Buffalo Bill”.

2.- David Lynch, Eraserhead.

This is getting sirious. This movie is not for the faint hearted, it’s filled with disturbing imagery, and a setting, that only the great David Lynch can master. At times I was hooked to the screen, but I admit, that it made me sick from time to time. Still, this is a movie that all future filmmakers, and horror fans should see.

1.- F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu.

My final and most beloved horror film goes to: Nosferatu. The one and only vampire film, the best, the greatest, period. A true classic will never die, and this particular film, is a must see, for all movie goers. From my personal point of view, the German expressionism is the mother of all horror films, particularly Murnau’s vision of Dracula.

What’s your favorite scary movie?
