Top ten horror movies

The horror movies are always criticized for their fierce violence and many blame them for violent acts that happen in our society. Yet they have many fans and a regular public. Most horror movies have a low budget due to their niche nature with a limited audience. There are several good horror movies made each year but only few managed to impress the audience.

The special effects are a very important aspect for horror movies. In old movies the special effects were primitive but the talent of the director could compensate that so some of the scariest horror movies are made in 1960s.

Creating a top ten of scariest horror movies is quite hard and usually subject to subjectivity. There is no comparison between the special effects and techniques used half a century ago and the ones used today.
