Top 100 Classic Horror Movies as Rated by CMH Fans!

Celebrating Classic Horror with our Fan Favorites Chart! 

As many of you already know, Classic Movie Hub publishes over 200 Classic Movie Charts  — all generated by fans. From genres to topics, and even decades, these charts are a fun way for us to share fan favorites and recommendations for must-see classic films. That said, we thought we’d share our Top 100 Classic Horror Movies List in celebration of Halloween later this month. And, remember, if you don’t like what you see, you can change things by rating your favorite films! And if you don’t see one of your fave classic-era films on our site, please let us know so that we can add it.

Abbott and Costello Meet FrankensteinAbbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, maybe not the scariest of horror flicks 🙂 but a real gem none-the-less

Many THANKS to all of you who are constantly rating films to keep our charts fresh and true. You can click through here to see the entire Top 100 List. And, here are the Top Ten:

  1. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
  2. The Birds (1963)
  3. Psycho (1960)
  4. Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
  5. Frankenstein (1931)
  6. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
  7. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
  8. The Black Cat (1934)
  9. Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951)
  10. House on Haunted Hill (1959)

I have a feeling they’ll be a little controversy among die-hard horror fans with some of the above, LOL, but that’s part of the fun!

  1. I love all the films in the top ten, although I think my choices might have been different. I would have put Bride of Frankenstein at no. 1. I would have also included two Hammer Films (Brides of Dracula and The Devil Rides Out), as well as The Wicker Man (the original, not the abomination).

      All good ones. And I have to agree — I just loved Bride of Frankenstein, so that would be at the top of my personal list! And, for me, Nosferatu as well as the original Dracula are two of my faves…

  2. Terri Boyles says:

    Some excellent films, loved The Black Cat, Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein & House on Haunted Hill. But 2 Abbott & Costello films? These are comedies with Universal Monsters in them. They were funny, but now I just find Bud Abbott’s bullying ways to be annoying.
