Revisiting Horror Movies in the Past

With the pursuit of finding and watching the best horror movies, I came across a website which lists the top 50 scariest movie of all time. The movies included in this list dates back from 1960 to 2008. I don’t usually like watching really old movies but surprisingly, I ended up liking a number of movies from the times where there are no iPods, GPS, or super high-tech computers. I always thought that horror movies from the past would have laughable prosthetics and special effects, but these movies proved me wrong. I have to say that nothing can inhibit an ingenious mind to create horror movies that have mind-blowing plots and magnificent gut-showing effects.
Here is the list, hope you enjoy them.
