/u/StopReadinMyUsername on reddit combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results with general film data from iCheckMovies and IMDb to reveal the 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time.
AFI's 100 Years…100 Movies – 10th Anniversary Edition was the 2007 updated version of 100 Years… 100 Movies. The original list was first unveiled in 1998.
Announced on January 18, 2007, this 10th installment of the American Film Institute's (AFI) Emmy Award-winning AFI 100 Years... series counted down the 100 greatest American movies of all time in a three-hour television event. Aired June 20, 2007 on CBS, it was hosted by Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman. The program considered classic favorites and newly eligible films released from 1996 to 2006.
January 19th 2019: Added Child's Play (remake), Annabelle 3, Candyman (reboot), Resident Evil (reboot), Final Destination 6 (/reboot), The Woman, Darlin' and The Evil Dead 2 (sequel to remake). Films yet to be added (missing in database): Beyond the Green Inferno, A Haunting at Silver Falls 2, The House on the Edge of the Park 2, "Pumpkinhead", He Never Died 2, Cannibals (sequel to Cannibal Holocaust), I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu, Laid to Rest: Exumed and Shrooms 2.

They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (TSPDT) is a modest but growing film resource dedicated to the art of motion picture filmmaking and most specifically to that one particular individual calling the shots from behind the camera - the film director.
This list is based on TSPDT's 1,000 Greatest Films, a list compilated by Bill Georgaris using thousands of best-of/all-time lists.
"Time Out proudly presents the 100 best horror movies, as chosen by those who write in, direct, star in and celebrate the genre. We polled well over 100 horror enthusiasts – including big names like Roger Corman, Guillermo del Toro, Simon Pegg, Clive Barker and Alice Cooper, and horror legends like Coffin Joe, Kim Newman and Tom Six – and came up with a definitive top 100 list."
UPDATE (2017): The source list has actually been updated last year - 9 movies were replaced by other picks. I'm including the new entries at the bottom of the list (rank 101+), while leaving the ousted entries intact. This preserves the list as it originally was in 2014, but lets you see the new entries too. The new picks are certainly deserving, but they're mostly more mainstream movies that a horror fan will likely have already seen - personally, I think the removed movies were more fun to discover.
Movies removed in 2016:
-The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)
-Let's Scare Jessica to Death (1971)
-The Black Cat (1934)
-Daughters of Darkness (1971)
-I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
-Flesh for Frankenstein (1973)
Movies added in 2016 (highest ranked to lowest):
-Lake Mungo (2008)
-The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
-Ginger Snaps (2000)
-Session 9 (2001)
-The Unknown (1927)
-It Follows (2014)
Welcome to our updated guide to the 200 Essential Movies To Watch Now! In our annual refresh, we’re sticking with the list’s original vision as a definitive source of movie guidance and education for all ages and stages, whether you’re a seasoned film buff or just starting out, while reflecting new trends and significant movies uncovered over the past year. The three films new to this iteration of the 200 Essential are The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (after a flurry of recent landmark and popular LGBTQ films, we’re shining a light on one of the best of the 1990s), Black Panther (for making leaps in on-screen representation without sacrificing any of its superhero movie obligations), and Wonder Woman (for its sheer entertainment value and re-invention of a female icon that will inspire and resonate for years and beyond).
We also completely reordered the list — it is now sorted by Tomatometer, highest to lowest. Feel free to start tackling the list with whatever is the most interesting to you first…or just start at #1 and start working your way down. We think you’ll have fun either way. And best of all, every movie on the list remains Certified Fresh!
