Of all the major categories, horror has always been my weakest genre though there are some quality films on show here. I've never liked horror (yes I'm a wimp lol) but at least I've managed to get round to watching these in the last few years. Though Psycho isn't technically horror, it still has its suspense and shocks hence its win on this list. Exorcist wasn't far off. Singing next with Musicals.
