A Clandestine Horror

by Joshuah

for the most part, I tend to loathe or find comical those called “Horror films” – I was greatly obsessed with them as a kid, but my obsession died quickly with their redundancy. It wasn’t until some one told me the scariest film he ever saw was Dancer in the Dark that I realized I enjoyed being terrified, and certain films not labeled as “Horror” were indeed terrifying. Some films on this list maybe loosely considered horror films (Cache for instance) but for the most part, I’ll avoid the typical film with gore and skulls.
