AMoT's Canon

A work in progress. Our goal is to establish a list of films we consider to be necessary viewing to consider oneself "literate" in the horror genre. Yes, we are also exactly this pretentious in real life. We're open to suggestions/arguments about movies we've added to the list, or movies you (noble listener) think deserve to be added. Again, this is a work in progress, ideally every single one of these films will eventually have an argument in place from both Ian and Fio as to why it belongs here. Or, if someone gets really, super-shredder level pissed about a film's inclusion and writes a scathing yet persuasive diatribe that manages to sway us, we'll probably have to start up another page giving credit to the people who've managed to knock films out of our personal canon.
