Letterboxd's Top 250 Horror Films

An accompaniment to the Letterboxd Top 250, which sadly contains very few horror films.

Extracted from here.

No shorts, no TV series, no YouTube videos, no filmed stage productions, no reissues, no trailer compilations, nor anything else that isn't really a feature film.

To ensure this list isn't filled with films with very few ratings, this only includes films viewed by at least 1,000 users.

To avoid arguments, the films must be categorised as "Horror" by Letterboxd.
