A Personal Horror Canon

Because it is late October and I lost my sleep at 7AM. A list of personal favorite horror films. The only serious criteria here is that I love all of those films.

I put this together fast using that big horror list. I might have forget something if it was not there or because i passed by it without notice. There's a lot of big canonical titles I like a lot but less than those I included here. Some filmmakers are probably over represented compared to others but I made no attempt to control that and there is some filmmakers, tendecies or sub genres that just kept barely missing.
