It's October, time for a ridiculous Halloween movie list.
My 100 Favorite Creepy Movies of all time.

I don’t want to call it a Horror movie list or even Scary movie list because maybe now Omega Man or Laurel and Hardy in The March Of The Wooden Soldiers don’t scare me, but when I saw them as a kid they creeped me out.

I'm sure I’m missing about twenty more movies that would of qualified, had I remembered them.

What’s missing that would make your lists (and don’t say Saw 2)?
