31 Days of Horror - The Longlist

There's talk here at Castle Vanian of having a horror marathon in October. The plan is to pick one classic horror movie to feature each day of October and, by classic, we mean made from 1930-2000.

Turns out thinking up just thirty-one classic films is harder than we thought!

After a couple of days of discussion, we managed to narrow down our options to a list of about 200. Good thing October's so far away!

While we argue our way down to sixty or so, check out our longlist and weigh in. Any you agree with? Any you disagree with? Have we forgotten any biggies? Let us know!
