Amy Faust’s Top 25 Horror Movies

ATMOSfx! Woo!
Rosemary's Baby

Scariest Thing’s own Shaky Cam Kitty’s picks! You like to find footage from dead people in the woods?  Well, so does Amy.  She hasn’t found a camera that isn’t worth shaking.

I came late to horror, being raised in an ultra-religious household, so my horror library pulls from primarily newer cinema. I prefer my horror smart-mouthed, fast-paced, and supernatural. I’ve got a BA in English and have watched Citizen Kane for three film classes (they could really use some new recommendations for syllabi). I’m a contributing author to and podcast yammerer for The Scariest Things.
