Through the years, HomeTheaterForum has provided reviews of horror films, from the little known, to the overblown - from the ghastly to the great.

Here is a summary of some, but not all, of the horror movies reviewed by your favorite site - collected here to help you decide what to watch this Halloween.

While this is posted in the HD Software thread, many reviews are for the Standard Definition version. Blu-Ray versions are indicated in blu!

I will keep adding to this list if you find it useful, helpful, or fun.

Hi Neil, thanks for the list.  You have a typo on "Decent, The".  ;)  Changes the idea of the movie entirely, eh?

:) Indeed it does - the movie is much better than the title would indicate that way. I will update...Thanks!

Neil -

Just wanted to say "Thanks" for posting this list.  It makes for interesting reading and will prove to be a very valuable reference tool as it gets updated.

Time to dust this list off again as we approach Halloween. I'll update the list over the next week or so with the most recent horror movie reviews churned out by the faithful HTF reviewers!

Note that my old review of Resident Evil: Apocalypse is for the original DVD release.  The PQ had issues, but I haven't seen the BD edition and don't know if it's better (I'd assume it is).

Updated the list - added about 40 reviews for the great and God-awful horror films that HTF has reviewed over the past 6-9 months. I believe that I am missing a few and will research and add them shortly.


Does anyone know what movie will be spinning this Halloween? ('cause if not, this list could help:) )

Just added Ken's review of Splice and Micheal O's review of the Slumber Party Massacre Collection which were posted in the last 48 hours, and Michael Rueben's review of one the better horror films made over the past few years, the remake of George A Romero's The Crazies.

I will work on updating this thread this week with reviews for horror movies that HTF reviewers have completed since the last update. Hopefully some will find it useful when selecting their scary movie watching roster for the Halloween season!

I have added a number of new review links and I am beginning to add cover art - still need to work on the formatting but I like being able to see the cover art. Hope it helps.
