Night of the Living Dead/ 1968
Night of the Living Dead is the OG zombie movie; it marked a new dawn in horror film-making. Without it, there probably would be no Walking Dead, no Zombies vs. Vampires, no Nazi Zombies in CoD. Watch the classic film that began a national argument: How horrifying can you make a horror film?
Plan 9 from Outer Space/ 1959
Plan 9 is a classic from B-movie auteur and hero Ed Wood. Wood is a filmmaker so beloved, his fans hail him as their savior. Seriously. Also, Glen Danzig of The Misfits named their independent record label Plan 9, creating a cult around their B-movie horror themed songs.
The Phantom of the Opera/ 1925
Phantom of the Opera is an obvious classic. It’s success paved the way for more Universal-backed horror film favorites: Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, and The Mummy. Also notable: Eric Chaney (the actor who played the phantom) did his own makeup, and when his face was revealed, audiences screamed. Just a warning.
