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 or movies, no YouTube videos, no filmed stage productions, no reissues, no trailer compilations, no behind-the-scenes documentaries, nor anything else that isn't really a full film. All entries must be at least 40 minutes in length.

To ensure this list isn't filled with films with very few ratings, this only includes films rated by at least 1,000 users and with at least 100 likes.

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