iCM Forum's Favourite Horror Movies : 8th (2022) Edition : Nomination Thread (Due 30/11, Midday CET)

Horror has always been an important part of the iCM experience.

So it's time to refresh the iCM Forum's Favourite Horror Movies list for the 8th time.

The deadline is 30st November 2022, 12 (midday) CET (Central European Time).

The rules, copy/pasted from the 2018 edition for the moment :

Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.*
*Imdb will be leading in this, but if you have good arguments exceptions to the rule can be made in consultation
Imdb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make one of those, ask another user to help you out.)
Lists can be any length.
Each nominee can only be named once (of course)
Your list may be ranked, unranked, or partially-ranked. In a partially-ranked list, the top X films are ranked and everything after that point is unranked. When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.
I'm not going to debate whether something is horror enought or not. That's up to the voters to decide.

List will be a top 250. Halflife will be 50.

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls077851990/ (ranked)

There is probably one or the other title on there that isn't eligible (I know I have one video game on the list, for example). They can just be skipped and won't cause a problem, I hope.

As group ranked lists apparently aren't accepted for this poll, do you want your list taken as fully ranked or partially ranked (such as 1-94, rest unranked)?
Because you specifically differ between three tiers and a "notable rest" in the introduction.

I thought "ranked" would be precise enough direction, but I'll spell it out. It's proper-ranked. So, ranked-ranked like the way the OPs instructions instruct to specify the rankedness nature of ones list with the sole word of "ranked" specifying a list to be ranked? I did that. Which is to say that is 1-2-3-4-5. #1 counts more than #2 and #2 counts more than #3, which counts more than #4, and that one counts more than #5, ad infinitum. No position receives the same number of points. It's like an escalator, it either goes up-up-up or down-down-down but never straight (except for those weird leveled ones at airports, ignore those; what are they supposed to be anyway, it's like at the register in a supermarket, putting items on this thingy that makes them move to the cashier, except in this case the people are the items, but I'm not Soylent Green, so what the fuck?). To put it in more unambiguous terms - which is how I want my words to be perceived - I want my list to be ranked. No wait, that's what I have been saying in the first place. OK, to straighten out any confusions I'll try to explain it better. You used the term "fully ranked". Yes, I do want my list to be ranked fully. From the first to the last title. Count every single one of them! And do a good job at it. I don't want any oversights, like, "Ooops, didn't see that, sorry, brah". Except for those ineligible outliers (AS I HAVE SPECIFIED IN MY POST, MIND YOU!), they are to be taken out of the ranks (and lined up to be shot like the three poor saps in 'Paths of Glory', or do with them as you please, it's up to you, I don't care, let your imagination run wild), they are to be excluded, as in not counted, just leave them to the wayside, that's fine, they will find their way around, find a new place somewhere else, maybe start a family, full of illegitimate children, and perhaps those can not be ranked, but my list can! And it ought to be. It's meant to be. And by ranked I mean fully. In all its fullness. It is different levels all the way through (not like those airport apparitions). Instead more like the airplanes! They go up-up-up. Or they go down-down-down. Of course they can also fly level. Well, relatively speaking, at least. Cuz wind and gravity and fluctuations that are par for the course with contemporary human aviation propulsion technology and...stuff (the mysteriously advanced propulsion technology exhibited by UPA's however...but that's a different subject and doesn't fit into what is a most concise explanation of what I mean by "ranked"). You see, every title is its own thing, its own entity. Obviously they are all different (everyone knows that), but they are different to each other in all kind of different terms, even in mathematical terms, which is to say - as simply as possible - mathematically they all have different values. And if mathematical terms don't suffice because maybe numbers aren't quite your forte and they kind of confuse you, let me try to put it in different terms. In plain German, it's like A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P-Q-R-S-T-U-V-W-X-Y-Z Oh Weh. Jetzt können wir das ganze ABC. So geht unser Alphabet. And this concludes today's lesson, children. Get home safely, no new homework today.

Here's everything from 2016 and older. Note that we switched from top 500 to top 250 after a while.

Ridiculous lists. Not a single mention of Get Out.
Glad we improved after that.

I really hope there will be a lot more voters coming still, cause the turnout for a genre that's by far the most popular in challenges and also had an annual poll big enough to warrant a top 500, is quite disappointing so far.
