Top 15 Horror Films of the 1990s

The 1990s were a strange decade for horror movies.  Strange and poor.  It seemed like at the begging of the decade there was some 1980s overflow and there are some really poor attempts at making scary movies.  To that point, the early 2000s were, for the most part, a disappointment.

In constructing a list of horror movies from the 1990s, I only came up with 17…yeah 17.  The 1980s had over 50, which is why we will have a Top 50, coming in October.  Hell, I could do a Top 50 Slasher movies from the 1980s.  But the 1990s were tough, not much worth adding to the Top 100.  Only nine of these 15 make it to the top 100.  The Top 100 Horror movies is coming in October.

We would love to hear from you, did we miss something?  Let us know on Facebook or Twitter and Follow us already!  Even if you do not agree, this is a list to get a good start on some 1990s horror, enjoy!

There is so much more about me. I hate this phrase, but I am an aspiring comic book writer. Problems with finding artists and getting published have held me back. Writing comics has been a dream for, well as long as I can remember. Now I am writing with a great team, Apogee Comics and hopefully we will make some noise in the same way Image comics did in the 1990s. One day, Rage of Rayzor and the Horror Syndicate will lead me to my dream. Support me, by sharing this site, liking and sharing posts, even following me on twitter would help @Rayzor_33. But you want to know about the horror…right? I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. When my little brother was 2, I was 10, so were talking 1990. He was introduced to Halloween and I made him believe Haddonfield, IL was a real place. We lived in Illinois at the time and this terrified him. After the intial shock, he grew older and more interested in horror films. When he was 8, we went to the local video store and made our way to the horror section. We started with Alien and worked our way through the alphabet of horror. That day we basically started our course in horror. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
