James Gunn Lists off 50 Favorite Horror Films for Halloween

Published

The cool thing about James Gunn, the mastermind behind the Guardians of the Galaxy films, is that he’s one of us. Gunn, who got his start working with Troma, is a hardcore horror fan just like the rest of us, wearing his love for the genre loud and proud in the hilarious horror-comedy Slither.

Gunn also wrote Dawn of the Dead, one of the best horror remakes of all.

So, what are James Gunn’s favorite horror movies? With Halloween approaching, he just put together a list of 50 favorites that he shared over on Facebook this week.

In case you’re looking for some horror movies to watch in this Halloween season, here are a few of my favorites, in kinda-sorta order of preference,” Gunn wrote. “I of course am not including the movies I had a hand in, such as Slither, Dawn of the Dead, or The Belko Experiment. Those are films you should, obviously, watch first.”

And I should note, as usual, this is my list of FAVORITES. It does not mean these are the BEST. They are simply the horror films I get the most out of personally,” he added.
