  1. Larry says:

    No Friday the 13th movies?????

    1. Larry – while I considered “Friday the 13th”, I didn’t add it because they weren’t realistic enough for me to be scared while watching them.

  2. Larry says:

    No children of the corn????

  3. Larry – thanks for 2 comments! Notice my asterisk in the title – the list was based on both quality standards and movies that I have seen… in the case of “Children of the Corn” – I have not actually seen those movies. So where would you rank my 2 omissions on your list?

  4. Larry says:

    Probably somewhere in the middle on both of them…
