Top 20 Horror Films of the 1960s

The 1960s… when horror started to define itself, but wasn’t quite there yet. Mostly thrillers in this lot, and I don’t even consider my #1 here a horror film (it’s 100% thriller to me), but they all have horror elements and are all solid films.


#20 – Night of the Eagle (1962)



#19 – The Comedy of Terrors (1963)



#18 – Paranoiac (1963)



#17 – Tales of Terror (1962)



#16 – The Creeping Terror (1964)



#15 – Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968)



#14 – What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)



#13 – Repulsion (1965)



#12 – Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
