Rotten Tomatoes, the movie review aggregate site you either love or hate, compiled it’s list of the 100 Best Reviewed Horror Films. This is based on what they call an “Adjusted Score” on eligible titles which stipulates at least 40 reviews and the number of reviews skewing the list (using some statistics thing called a Bayesian formula). Some of these are my favorite films of all times (#2, 17, 18, 23, 34, 41, 45, 58, 73, 90) and others I’m surprised to see on this list (#32, 44-really?, 51, 71), and some I’d never heard of (#72, 84, 93, 94). Anyhoo, my spring/summer project is to watch the remaining 23 films (marked in dead skin blue) on this list that I haven’t seen.
