horror canon

procrastinating rn, and once again thinking about horror, so taking a page from the book of mike. basically all horror films I give any sort of approval to at all, from the masterworks to the broken curios, the only requirement being that I enjoyed the film or at least found something of interest in it. ordered chronologically. certainly incomplete.
