Good clean fun (so to speak). I took lots of notes on what to watch next. There'll always be disagreements about rankings, especially when what's "scariest" depends on what you come to the movie with. I do think nostalgia, commentator availability, and which footage Shudder could get rights to affects which films are showcased, but it's a great rundown of some truly excellent horror cinema. I will say: Very confused about Joe Lo Truglio (does being in Brooklyn Nine-Nine really qualify you to comment? I dunno, man, but he does have better movie recall than I ever will).

I really enjoyed this show. I had seen most of the movies mentioned, but also found some gems I missed.

So good, definitely great mentions, but I think nostalgia is a huge bias in this, as a young horror watcher I don’t find Halloween as nearly as scary as hereditary realistically, but I will say Texas chainsaw has some amazing moments and is truly terrifying. I think that there were better choices for scariest moments, an example the birds, the scene were they find the man’s body without eyes and push in with no music is terrifying to me, truly unsettling, but was not mentioned. Amazing show though. Watched it all in two days!

Love the episodes but Halloween was ranked way too low.
