Since we're mere hours away from Halloween, why don't we find out what films scare Martin Scorsese?

I've been saving this for a few days now, and it seems like a good time to post at the given moment. The full article is here, but this is the list of the 11 scariest flicks to Mr. Scorsese:

1. “The Haunting” (Robert Wise, 1963)
2. “Isle of the Dead” (Val Lewton, 1945)
3. “The Uninvited” (1944)
4. “The Entity” (Sidney J. Furie, 1981)
5. “Dead of Night” (Alberto Cavalcanti, 1945)
6. “The Changeling” (Peter Medak, 1980)
7. “The Shining” (Stanley Kubrick, 1980)
8. “The Exorcist” (William Friedkin, 1973)
9. “Night of the Demon” (Jacques Tourneur, 1957)
10. “The Innocents” (Jack Clayton, 1961)
11. “Psycho” (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)
-What do you think about Marty's list?


  1. At least he didn't pick any remakes of J-horror...

  2. We can always count on Mr. Scorsese for excellent taste in movies.


  3. Almost all the time, yes...only movie I know he likes that I can't stand is "The Diary of a Country Priest"

  4. The original Haunting is a work of art. One of the finest horror films ever made by a true master. An excellent pick, Mr. Scorsese.
