Robert Zilbauer’s Top 25 Horror Movies

ATMOSfx! Woo!

The Scariest Thing’s ZED features plenty of creatures in his top 25 list of scary movies. 

I grew up in a nice house with a loving family and good friends. We had houseplants and pets and sunshine. Somewhere along the way, though, a seed was planted. Was it a grainy, black & white image of Godzilla? Rod Serling’s voice? Who knows? But before you could say “Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!” I was hip-deep in Tales From The Darkside, Twilight Zone reruns, and Stephen King novels. Fast forward an undisclosed number of decades spent watching an uncountable number of movies and here I am today. Trying to nurture those same creepy little seeds in others through (occasionally overly verbose) movie reviews and recommendations. Grow, ya spooky little things. Grow!
