Top 10 Most Controversial Horror Movies

Bloody Disgusting runs down the top ten most controversial horror films of all time. It’s a pretty good list. I’m actually a little surprised the Blair Witch Project didn’t make the list. And I remember everybody talking about Children Of The Corn when I was a kid. I also think [REC] should replace Salo as the token foreign film (watch this one – you’ll be exhausted by the end and still not be able to sleep).

10. Antichrist (2009)
9. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
8. Peeping Tom (1960)
7. The Last House on the Left (1972)
6. I Spit on Your Grave (1978)
5. Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
4. Freaks (1932)
3. The Devils (1971)
2. The Exorcist (1973)
1. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

    have you seen Antichrist? curious because it’s the first horror flick of the 00’s listed.
    never saw [REC]. worth it?
    surprised that Return of the Living Dead and Rosemary’s Baby didn’t make the top 10.
    the only decent horror movie i’ve seen in the last decade is The Exorcism of Emily Rose. nice, long build-up, easy on the CGI, and it didn’t hurt when jennifer carpenter turned up on Dexter. that said, it still kinda sucked.
    i wonder if we base our most controversial horror movie choices on the age at which we flinched through them.
