THE TOP 10...

#10: American Psycho (Mary Harron, 2000)
#9: The Hammer Remake Trinity (Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, and The Mummy)
#8: Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979)
#7: The Exorcist (William Friedkin, 1973)

#2: Jacob's Ladder (Adrian Lyne, 1990)

AND MY FAVORITE HORROR FILM OF ALL TIME IS...

#1: The Thing (John Carpenter, 1982)

*I know I've said that I prefer the 2013 version, but seeing as De Palma's version focuses much more on the horror aspect of King's novel, I figured it'd be more appropriate to include that version on this list
**Ghostbusters has ghosts and demons, so it could technically count as horror
Everything is terrible.
