“11 Classic Horror Films that You Might have Missed”

Friend of the Gutter Jay Patrick shares a list of essential classic horror movies. “Here’s a list of 11 essential classics of horror cinema that you might have overlooked, all of which are available to view on physical media through Netflix DVD. I’ve drawn the line in the ectoplasm at 1970 because the aesthetics of horror shifted dramatically with the dissolution of the Hays Code and the introduction of the MPAA film ratings system in 1968. American filmmakers immediately began exploring newfound freedoms with regards to graphic depictions of sex and violence, literally rendering the films made before the ratings system a product of a bygone – but no less worthy – era of cinema.”
