Arthouse Horror Classics
I asked myself: “What if someone gave you access to an Arthouse movie theater for a week to present a lineup of classic Horror films – which movies would you choose?” Here are my picks, a double feature each night:
Nosferatu (1922) and Vampyr (1931)
I Walked with a Zombie (1943) and Curse of the Cat People (1944)
Les Diaboliques (1955) and Peeping Tom (1960)
Kwaidan (1964) and Onibaba (1965)
Black Sunday (1960) and The Tomb of Ligeia (1964)
Frankenstein (1931) and Freaks (1932)
This isn’t a comprehensive list of what I consider the most artistic horror films of all time, but it’s close. I would probably only add about a half dozen more or so.
I’ve linked to my previous posts regarding these films for further insights into why I consider these important films.
