The Cyber-Horror Elite’s Top 20 Foreign Horror Movies!
Once again, B-Sol of The Vault of Horror has graciously asked me to participate in another Best-Of list, along with other members of the “Cyber-Horror Elite”. First we tackled the Top 50 Horror Films of All Time. People bitched because more recent films were neglected in favor of other, “classic films.” So we attempted to remedy the situation with the Top 25 Horror Films of The Modern Era, incorporating films from 1990 and beyond. So people bitched because the list leaned toward too many American films, neglecting films produced in foreign countries (most of, if not all, of the Cyber-Horror Elite members are American, so this doesn’t come as much of a surprise).
So here we go again, presenting the Top 20 Foreign Horror Films of All Time. Let the bitching begin.
“Foreign,” in this respect, equals non-American. There are actually quite a few movies on the list featuring our favorite undead brethren, including Shaun of the Dead, Dead Alive, and Fulci’s Zombi 2 (aka Zombie). The top-ranked zombie film is Cemetary Man, a movie that I’ve still yet to see*.
I’ll let you click on over to The Vault of Horror to check out the whole list, and after the jump, you can check out my personally-submitted Top 10.
Oh, and be on the look-out for the next outing from the Cyber-Horror Elite: The Cyber Horror Awards!

*I know, I know. First I haven’t read World War Z (which is currently being remedied thanks to a care package from our own Leighcifer) and now I haven’t seen Cemetary Man. Why do I show my face ’round here?
