Top 10 Films joined forces with critics from around the world to check out the greatest horror movies ever made. We’ve travelled across the globe from the USA to the Far East to sample the delights of the genre through the eyes of filmmakers worldwide.
Top 10 Films‘ Horror Movie Tour of the World
Top 10 Films’ world tour of horror cinema captures two of my greatest passions: horror movies (of course!) and travel. I reached out to film writers across the globe as well as the Top 10 Films team (which has members from all corners of the world) to discover the best scary movies. We’ve got recognisable titles from the USA and Britain in the form of The Exorcist and The Wicker Man while, as we go further afield, less mainstream but equally great horror from Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, South Korea and Japan.
Join us as we delve into the very different worlds of horror cinema as seen through the eyes of filmmakers from across the world. From the best British horror movies such as The Wicker Man, The Descent, The Haunting and Peeping Tom to the infamous scary films from the USA such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead and Rosemary’s Baby we go further afield to sample the delights of the Far East, the icy cool of Scaninavian terror, and uniquely Italian thrills of giallo cinema.
