Film Nerd’s Choice: The Thing
I needed some help from the IMDB on this one. I am a person who does not keep restricted to watching one genre, but I must admit, aside from drinking nights with friends over Freddy and Jason marathons, I have never actively considered which horror films strike me as the best. The IMDB top rated horror films as of this time are Psycho, Alien, The Shining, and The Thing, in that order. I jumped to number four on the list as I consider Psycho more of a thriller, Alien more of a sci-fi thriller, and though I appreciate the quality of the Shining, on a personal scale I rate The Thing higher.
