The Horror Oscars

Horror films have never gotten much respect at the Academy Awards. Over 90 years, only six horror movies have been nominated for Best Picture, and you could argue about whether some of those were really horror films. Now, imagine that the Oscars had a category for Best Horror Film. What movies would have won that prize over the past 40 years? The Ringer took this fantasy exercise and ran with it, coming up with five nominees for every year since Halloween came out in 1978, and crowning an imaginary Best Horror Film winner from those nominees (with short critiques and video clips) for each year. Some of those years were thin on great horror, while others had so many good movies that it's hard to compare them with each other. And whether or not you agree with their choices, you'll have a great list of movies you might want to watch or re-watch in October.
