Another Top Ten list

Bill Crider is the man who usually keeps tabs on these inventories but since he can only do so much I’ll kick in and do my share: here’s another “Top Ten terrifying movies of all time” compendium, courtesy of Andrew O’Hehir at (which he describes as “from the totally obvious to the obscure and obnoxious”). Technically, I guess you would call this a Top Twenty list…since he makes two lists of ten. But I’m beginning to wonder why The Shining (1980) keeps showing up in these catalogs—I think the movie is as subtle as a Warner Brothers cartoon. (Your mileage may vary.)

I never found anything scary about THE SHINING. But I'm glad to see THE HAUNTING (the original) included down there near the end.
