26. Society (Wild Card #5)

25. Black Christmas (#199)
Before Freddy, before Jason, hell, even before Michael, there was Billy, the crazed, unseen killer of Bob Clark’s Black Christmas, the Canadian prototypical slasher film that dropped on fine fall day in 1974.

20. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (Wild Card #4)
It’s never a good sign when you find a dead woman in the dirt floor of a basement, but it’s an even worse sign when she turns out to be a vengeful witch, hell-bent on wreaking vengeance on you from beyond her undead grave! And there you were thinking it was just going to be...

19. The Thing (#138)
1982 was a hell of a year for movies, spear-headed by the blockbuster Steven Spielberg classic ET, but 1982 also might have been the greatest single year for cult classics of all time. Bladerunner, The Dark Crystal, Creepshow – the list goes on – but at the top of that list is the box-office-bomb-turned-genre-classic, John...
