Horror is a popular genre and appeals to many different groups of people no matter age or gender. I have found a link that goes through the top twenty five horror films made, according to IGN Entertainment. Among the list is movies such as "Friday the 13th", "Frankenstein", and "Halloween." The second film on this list is "The Exorcist." "The Exorcist" is based on a novel and the plot involves a girl who is possessed by demons. The number one movie named is "The Shining." According to this website "The Shining" is "An absolute masterpiece of atmosphere and tension. There's no suppressing its irresistible, nail-biting allure: from the dismembered twins to the disguised, canoodling partygoers in Room 237, The Shining offers frights that last long after the film is finished."
