Damon Fox of the progressive rock band Bigelf has sent Bloody-Disgusting his Top 10 horror movies and, perhaps not surprisingly, it’s a list comprised of classics! Make sure to check out our exclusive interview with Damon after you’ve checked out his picks!
Direct from Damon Fox:
When I was a young movie goer, these were some the flicks that scared the shit outta me!
It’s hard to pick ten, but here are a few of my faves.
Most of them are from the late 70’s/early 80’s in the psych/occult/demonic genres, enjoy.
Sci-fi horror at it’s finest and one of Ridley’s best, no one will ever forget that little guy popping out!
So sweet, but extremely satanic…John Travolta is great in this one too.
One of my all time favorite movies. The best thing about Jaws is,…you don’t see the shark until halfway through. Just the classic theme, “duh-dun”. Now that’s suspense…
4. Halloween (1978)
Not a big slasher fan but this one stands out and boasts the best iconic bad guy(imho) and JC nailed the score. Epic chord progression!
Popcorn meets the graveyard but nice and creepy, especially that f*cking clown!
I love this story and the vintage music cues.
7. The Shining
Another Stephen King masterpiece! Twisted and evil, this one gave me nightmares. REDRUM!
8. The Silence Of The Lambs
A milestone for horror, though it may be only considered a hybrid film by some. Psychological, demented, macabre & Academy Awards!
I guess I’m a Stephen King fan, what can I say? The guy can write.
10. *Honorable mention*
Frankenstein (1931), Dracula (1931), The Birds, The Omen, The Dead Zone
