Top 10 Films was founded by film critic Dan Stephens. Off the back of his very successful film and culture journal Strange Conversation, he decided to entertain one of his great passions – favourite movie lists.

However, the site would never have been established were it not for the success of a particular top 10 List, which first appeared on Strange Conversation and has been reposted HERE on Top 10 Films. The list in question – Top Horror Movies of the 1980s – proved to be a major draw for Strange Conversation, bringing in hundreds of readers every week and generating lots of discussion amongst film fans. The list quickly became the number one listed in Google search results, inspiring the creation of a dedicated site for top film lists.


Film lists are commonplace. No matter where you are on the internet you’ll find movie polls and lists telling you what the greatest movies are., however, has no “Greatest Movie Ever Made” list. The lists here are across diverse categories and created to help you find films that you may never have discovered. The lists are here to create comment and debate, to inspire people to seek out films they haven’t seen before or never thought they would be interested in.

Since the site began it has quickly grown to incorporate more than just Top 10 lists. Many of our Top 10’s are accompanied by reviews, features, essays, and links to videos online. We also where possible direct you to the best deals from online retailers so you can buy the films you want on DVD and Blu-Ray or stream online via Netflix, Amazon Prime etc.

Top 10 Films also now includes dedicated sections devoted to British cinema and movies of the 1980s (two passions of site founder Dan Stephens).

And, as the site aims to celebrate the greatest works of cinema, we also look at our favourite scenes, we tell you what films go great together in Midnight Double Feature, and lots more.
