    The only sequel is #10, no remakes.

    I decided to rule by what I actually think is best, not by favorites. And I didn't want to mix classic horror or the rat shit years 2003-2013 with 1968-2002, so I concentrated on that period instead.

    I'm guessing you didn't read the first post. We need your top 25 in order from absolute favorite (#1) to 25th favorite (#25) to collate the data properly.

    Edit: You currently don't have a # 11.
