horror director top 10 horror films

During the last 30 days or so, we have composed more than 15 horror lists on Taste of Cinema. These lists covered over 200 awesome horror films from several time periods, countries and subgenres. Mainstream and underrated horror movies were both considered, so no matter you are die-hard horror fan who seek for obscure horror flicks you haven’t seen yet, or not-so-crazy-about-horror film buff who just want to find some descent horror films to watch with your family at Halloween night, you can find them here.

Now it’s time to reveal our last horror list of this Halloween season, let’s have a look at what some of the industry’s biggest names’ favorites are like. We have cheated a bit with some directors, their selections are more or less than ten, but it’s still better than nothing, right?
