A Century of Dark Imagination – Conclusion

So we come to the last days before Halloween, a holiday that, whatever its origins, exists now as a celebration of imagination, the frisson of the unknown that survives our childhoods and gives us so many pleasant shivers.
 
Here are the films Drake and I chose from each decade in one easy-to-read list. If you watch any of them, I would love to hear your reactions.

Keep in mind this is the time to check out your listings for Turner Classic Movies, American Movie Classics, Chiller, IFC (Independent Film Channel), and SciFi Network!  There are some great horror movie marathons coming up!
