70s HORROR MOVIES - When it comes to horror, I’m a sucker for an original concept, and in that regard the 70s horror flicks deliver. This is the decade that broke from rubber headed B movie monsters, and ushered in an age of exploration, influencing the genre for decades to come. The 70s celebrate all horror subgenres: supernatural, paranormal, demonic, slasher, nature, psychological, scifi horror, hillbilly, zombie, vampire, big moments and small, just to name a few. Regular visitors to my blog will probably recognize several of these but it’s important to remember these are the original versions and remakes of these titles came much later. Coming soon: Horror of the Aughts.

Tales from the Crypt 1972

    I'm not really a fan of any scary movie.. Except for those that have a moral lesson in the end.. Such as 'the shutter',i can't remember if it's Korean version or Taiwan, that I've watched.

  5. Great list. My husband is a huge horror fan so we’ve seen most of these but the couple I haven’t I’m adding to my list.

  7. Thanks for sharing! I have not had time to watch and wish I could see more horror movies. Thanks for this recommendation

  8. Those movies used to scare me but when I watch it now, maybe because of the special effects that we have, it's no longer as scary as it was before.

  9. I would say the 70s horror movies were more scarier and realistic than the present day ones.

  10. I love horror movies and this list is interesting. Will bookmark this one and will watch them one by one.
