  1. I find it interesting that this list is the most INFLUENTIAL horror movies. I wonder exactly what criteria they used to determine that. Additionally, I understand the limited explanations, but I wish they had saved the explanations for the less-known films. We know why Silence of the Lambs is influential, but what about Nosferatu? I think it would have been more appropriate to have explanations for movies like that.

  2. When they throw in Sam Loomis as the boyfriend in Pyscho. The top six has two Sam Loomises. Coincidence? I think NOT!
