Hammer is synonymous with horror, after defining the genre in Britain with classics such as Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Mummy, which spawned numerous sequels. However, only 1/3rd of Hammer films were horror! The company tackled other genres, including psychological thrillers, sci-fi, noir and historical epic.

Prior to the establishment of UK state censorship implemented in the Video Recordings Act of 1984, censorship was in the realms of the courts and the Obscene Publications Act. This required the courts to apply the test of whether videos were likely to "deprave and corrupt" the viewer. The Director Of Public Prosecutions (DPP) maintained a list of those videos that were felt likely to be found obscene by the courts and hence worthwhile prosecuting.
Of course, the real drivers behind the moral panic were the UK press led by the ever obnoxious Daily Mail. Not to mention a few politicians who felt they could make a name for themselves.

Several versions of the video nasty list were published with videos added and removed over the period 1983-1985. 72 videos were listed at least for a while. Another couple of films can stake a claim via a shared name with listed films. 39 made it through to the end, and these became known as the DPP39s. These 39 titles became the most sought after collectibles.

As a counterpart to the fairly mainstream TSPDT top 1000 list, the Ain't Nobody's Blues But My Own list has been created. The movies on this list had as its solely criterium: they must be mentioned at most once in a top list. 250 film critics/film makers got to choose exactly one of the aforementioned movies.

The list hadn't been on the website of TSPDT for several years and hadn't been updated for many years as well. In January 2019 the owner of the site sent [iCheckMovies] a new update. It's not listed on his website, but you can view the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EJKX9yOpKk3dT9BizPambwxhbjfMd7QAWxzlT31l4f8/edit?usp=sharing

The list contains 253 titles instead of 250, because the vote for Buddha's Palm consists of four parts.

cloned from Nunsploitation by sp1ti

"Nunsploitation is a subgenre of exploitation film which had its peak in Europe in the 1970s. These films typically involve Christian nuns living in convents during the Middle Ages. The main conflict of the story is usually of a religious or sexual nature, such as religious oppression or sexual suppression due to living in celibacy. The Inquisition is another common theme. These films, although often seen as pure exploitation films, often contain criticism against religion in general and the Catholic church in particular. Indeed, some protagonist dialogue voiced feminist consciousness and rejection of their subordinated social role. Many of these films were made in countries where the Catholic Church is influential, such as Italy and Spain. One atypical example of the genre, however, is Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi), set in, then, present-day Italy (1978).
Nunsploitation, along with Nazisploitation, is a subgenre that ran a parallel course alongside Women in prison films in the 1970s and 1980s. As with prison films, they are set in isolated, fortress-like convents where the all-female population turns to lesbianism and perversity. The element of religious guilt allows for lurid depictions of "mortifying the flesh" such as self-flagellation and painful, masochistic rituals. The Mother Superior is usually a cruel and corrupt warden-like martinet who enforces strict discipline (more opportunities for whippings and medieval-style punishments) and often lusts after her female charges. An equally sadistic and lecherous priest is often included to add an element of masculine menace to the story. (Wikipedia)

Thanks to all who’ve made this a very popular list, in spite of glitches causing dozens of fans to suddenly disappear :(

A big welcome to the land of cinematic wonders!

I’ve aimed for a rounded overview to include not only personal favourites but popular hits and international award winners, animé landmarks, avant-
garde films, the New Wave, erotic “pink films” and the great classics that are still the glory of world cinema.

Much of silent cinema before the 1930s has been lost, its Benshi narrators displaced but good finally to have the landmark film Souls on the Road on Mubi. In the 20s directors were able to learn their trade through prolific practice, aware of and encorporating developments in both the Soviet Union and the West… and then, what a wealth of wonders! Older masters: the unequalled aesthetic refinement of Mizoguchi, the charm of Shimizu, the quiet observational wisdom of Ozu, the tragically curtailed promise of Yamanaka, the balanced restraint of Naruse, the muscular humanism of Kurosawa… Then, a new generation from the late 50s, in full swing in the sexually freer 60s: the idealism of Kobayashi, the political bite of Oshima, the earthy subversion of Imamura, the cool of Suzuki and Masumura. the avant-garde Terayama.. So many to explore: Yoshida, Ichikawa Kon, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Wakamatsu, Kumai, the documentaries of Ogawa and Hara, the stop motion master Kawamoto, the blood soaked Fukasaku.. the rise of animé, with the international success of Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki’s beautiful flights of fancy, the spiky Tsukamoto, the popular appeal of Kitano, the prolific shocker Miike.. up to the present with Koreeda, Naomi Kawase, Sono, Kurosawa Kiyoshi… oh and i almost went without mentioning Samurai and Godzilla.

The Werewolf Sub-Genre has always been a rather bland one for us. Aside from a few standout titles being stellar, we've found that most Werewolf flicks tend to underwhelm us. A lot of them just aren't that good. Growing up in a time when An American Werewolf in London and The Howling set the bar on Werewolf movies at a crazy high level probably has a lot to do with it though. They spoiled us.

When done right though, Werewolf movies have an unbridled ferocity about them, and they make us identify with the plight of those doomed to change into bloodthirsty monsters by the light of the moon... or fear the ones who do so simply because they can.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Werewolf flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, An American Werewolf in London and The Howling are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Werewolf Sub-Genre, so just enjoy them all!

With The Walking Dead being the most popular thing on the planet right now, the popularity of the Zombie itself may be at an all-time high. People are fascinated by the idea of a world ruled by the undead, and luckily for them, there are plenty of great movies out there that will more than satisfy that craving... And yes, some of those movies are even better than The Walking Dead. *Depending on your outlook, maybe even most of them are.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Zombie flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Return of the Living Dead and the original Dawn of the Dead are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Zombie Sub-Genre, so enjoy them all!

As Halloween draws ever closer, the next stop on our Best of... journey leads us to the most fearsome and revered movie monster of them all: The Vampire. They're evil, they need to feed, and they want our blood. That's about as terrifying as it gets.

Ever since Dracula and Nosferatu first terrified audiences nearly a century ago, the vampire has arguably been the most prominent of all movie monsters. There have been too many incarnations of the bloodsucking menaces to count (Dracula himself has been brought to cinematic life at least 170 times himself, with more surely to come), and so picking only 30 of them to represent the sub-genre as a whole was no easy task.

The vampire movies that we tend to love the most are the exciting ones, the darker ones. The ones that put a welcomed twist on an overly-familiar story, or the ones that just play it straight and give us exactly what we expect from a vampire story. Depends on our mood. Luckily for us, there are more than enough vampire movies to fit any mood, at any given time.

We love vampire flicks. I mean, one of the coolest vampires of all-time is our mascot, so that pretty much goes without saying, but we really do love them. What other movie monster can be so suave and yet so terrifyingly deadly at the same time? *Hannibal Lecter doesn't count.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Vampire Flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. The Lost Boys and Salem's Lot are probably our all-time faves, but then they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the bloodsucker Sub-Genre.

Post Apocalyptic movies are some of our favorite kinds of movies to watch. Any work of fiction that involves people trying to survive in a destroyed world, just taps into our fear centers like few others. There are a few different ways that the world can end in these movies: nuclear holocaust, viral outbreak, alien invasion, nature revolting against us, or sometimes, the world even ends by supernatural means.

Many PA flicks are probably more based in the realm of Sci-Fi than they are pure Horror, but even the ones that stray too far from our Horror purview tend to be terrifying in their own right. Putting this list together meant including some of those types of movies, but in the end, they all fit quite neatly under the Post-Apocalyptic banner; even if a few of them are more accurately "End of the World" movies than they are Post-Apocalyptic.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Post-Apocalyptic flick, Horror or otherwise, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For us, The Road Warrior is probably our all-time fave, although this year's Mad Max: Fury Road comes close. They all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Post-Apocalyptic Sub-Genre though.

Most Home Invasion flicks tend to involve some malevolent bastards forcing their way into a home, with the goal of terrorizing its occupants in mind. Sometimes they involve someone hiding in an attic or an upstairs room. Sometimes, it's a tiger that does the invading.

No matter what the scenario though, the average Home Invasion movie makes for an intense and terrifying ride. The above average ones make that ride even better.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Home Invasion flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Inside and Them are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Home Invasion Sub-Genre, so enjoy them all!

There's something terrifying as hell about a viral outbreak which turns everyone around you into monsters that want to kill you, eat you, or assimilate you. The Walking Dead (which is not on this list, but is relative to our point) is the most popular show on TV for a reason, folks, and that reason is that pandemics, whether large or small, prey on our most primal of fears: that the world around us can go to hell at any minute.

Walking STDs; hordes of infected humans; killer mutant sheep; viral demons; flesh-eating bacteria; or even alien slugs that are determined to take over the world; the movies on this Best of Viral/Infected Horror list are sure to give you nightmares. Or even daymares. Some of them are really that scary.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Viral/Infected Horror flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, [REC] and 28 Days Later are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Viral/Infected Sub-Genre.

Someone recently asked us if we could recommend any Haunted House or Supernatural movies along the lines of 1408, The Shining, or Rose Red for them to watch, which got us to thinking that we should just make a list of the 30 or so of the best Haunted House flicks that we've seen.

Then we got to thinking about what qualifies a movie as a "Haunted House" movie? Well, a house that is haunted by a spirit of entity is the main thing, but you could stretch the definition to include plenty of other settings & plots as well; technically, Alien (1979) could be considered a Haunted House movie, at least insofar as its mechanics are concerned. The Evil Dead is technically a Haunted House movie too... but then again, it's really more of a possession flick, right?

We will try to keep this list as “Pure” as possible, but keep in mind that some movies can easily fit into two or more sub-genres, so there will be a certain amount of flexibility about it.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Haunted House flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For us, Session 9 is the best of them, but they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Haunted House Sub-Genre.

Witches are as synonymous with Halloween as are pumpkins and black cats, and so with October rapidly approaching, we got to thinking about Witch movies, and how great they can be when done right.

Some movie Witches are benevolent and use their powers for good, but in the Horror Genre, most tend to be wizened old crones who are out to kill or eat people, or even worse, take their souls. Most Witches serve Satan you see, so sacrifice is a big part of their daily lives.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Witch flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Suspiria and Black Sunday are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Witch Flick Sub-Genre, so why not just enjoy them all!

As nasty and terrifying as Horror movies are in general, they can also be a bit absurd to a point. When a movie comes along and decides to play on that absurdity for laughs, the results are often a thing of beauty... when done right, of course.

In their own way, Horror Comedies can be every bit as satisfying of a watch as standard Horror flicks are, and sometimes, even more so.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Horror Comedy, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right.

When we think of Slasher Flicks, we mainly think of masked killers, blood, clever kills, and promiscuous teens in various stages of undress; because that's what they are, for the most part. There are plenty of Slashers that offer more than just visceral thrills though, giving us things like atmosphere, tension, genuine terror, levity, and even solid stories that help fray our nerves in different and clever ways.

No matter what variety they come in though, the Slasher Flick is an important staple in the Horror Genre, and one that most Horror Fanatics tend to embrace with open arms.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Slasher Flick, any of the Classic movies in our Top Six will do you right. All 6 of them are true Classics for a reason; they changed the Horror Genre as a whole, each to different degrees, and they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to a Sub-Genre that is usually dismissed as being nothing more than a vehicle for cheap thrills.

There's something about a ship full of people in deep space who find themselves set upon by some malevolent force, that makes us smile like fools. Alien started it all for us, and years later it was Event Horizon that re-invigorated our love for Horror flicks set it space, but there are others out there that are just about as good, even if a lot of them are not purely Horror.

There just aren't a lot of Horror movies set in space, and so we had to be a bit liberal with the titles that we included on this list. Below, you'll find a few movies that lean more towards the Sci-Fi side of things, as well as a few that are straight-up B-movies. We even included Hellraiser: Bloodlines here, because it featured Cenobites in Space.

It's a small list that takes some liberty with boundaries, but Space Horror is a tiny sub-genre that we love, and so we felt that it deserved a bit of recognition.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Space Horror Flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. Alien and Event Horizon are probably our all-time faves, but then they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Space Sub-Genre.

The Found Footage/POV/Hand-Held/First Person sub-genre is a derisive one at best. FF flicks can be intense and terrifying, making you feel like you;'re actually watching real footage of real people being stalked, haunted, etc... and those are the good ones. Found Footage flicks can also be cheap, shoddy, predictable, and overly-familiar, which basically renders them useless as far as scares go. Those are the bad ones.

Below, we've tried to cull the absolute best "Footage" movies from the hundreds and hundreds that are out there, which was no easy feat. We tried our best to be objective about which movies made the list, and which ones didn't, but in the end, our personal tastes played more of a role here than they usually do when we make a Best of list.

There will no doubt be a few movies missing from this list that will make people cry foul; Grave Encounters and The Den are two good examples of popular FF flicks that many Horror fans loved, but did nothing for us. Sorry.
We've also included a few movies in our Honorable Mention section that might raise some eyebrows: End of Watch isn't Horror at all, and Sinister may have some great Found Footage in it, but is by no means a FF flick. They both do the FF thing extremely well however, and so here they are.
The Top Six for this list was a tough one to put together, mainly because a lot of the movies below could easily be at the top of the list. Each of the movies in The Top Six were included for specific reasons, but that doesn't mean that Home Movie or The Tunnel weren't as good. Rankings are a flexible thing, so take them as you will.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Found Footage Flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Noroi and [REC] are probably the best (and most terrifying) of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Found Footage Sub-Genre.

Backwoods Horror movies come in many different varieties, but being chased through the woods by inbred, homicidal maniacs is definitely at the core of this tried and true sub-genre. Of course sometimes it can be Neo-Nazis doing the chasing, or maybe even a monster; and sometimes the action takes place on a mountain or even in a single cabin; but there are always somehow woods involved. They kinda have to be.

No matter the setting or menace though, Backwoods Horror is wildly compelling, because who doesn't fear being lost in the boonies while death is breathing down your neck?

There are plenty of Slasher flicks that are technically Backwoods Horror, but we didn't include them here because they got their own list, and there are plenty true Backwoods Horror movies out there that deserve the attention.
When it comes to Backwoods Horror flicks, we implore you to check out some of the lesser known titles like Frontiere(s), Rabies, or Rovdyr, if you're looking for something "new" and a bit different.
Also, don't sleep on The Tourist Trap. Truly creepy stuff.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Backwoods Horror flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wolf Creek are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Backwoods Sub-Genre, so enjoy them all!

We love Bad Movies nearly as much as we love Horror. Sometimes, when we're in the mood, we may even love them more.

There's just something deeply satisfying about watching a movie that tries so hard to get everything right, fail miserably in every single aspect, to the point of pain. There's no way that you can watch Vanilla Ice try to act in Cool as Ice and not be in tears; or watch Lou Ferrigno tying rubber cobras together while telling them "Hey, be nice!" in Sinbad of the Seven Seas, and not die laughing; and there's no way in hell that you can watch The Room and not wonder "Does it get any worse than this?"

Most of the movies below are so horrible and inept, that they defy all logical explanation, and they're all crazy enjoyable on a level that we can't even begin to explain.

Not all of these movies are going to be easy find. We've had to watch many of them ourselves on used VHS tapes.
Amazon is a great place to buy a copy of many of these movies, but as most of them are sold through 3rd party sellers, be sure to read their user reviews to make sure they deliver what they promise, and for a reasonable price.
You can also watch a lot of these movies on YouTube, even if the quality isn't that great.
We include the MST3K version of Pod People here, because we can’t find the normal version of the movie to watch, and it’s an A+ episode.

For the first 6 movies in the list:

If you truly love Bad Movies, then the movies in our Top Six will give you endless amounts of pleasure... and pain. Start with whichever one you like, but watch them all, as they are truly Bad Movie gems of the highest order.

For the remaining:

For the record, many of the movies beyond the Top Six are absolutey classic too. The Apple, Cage, Hard Rock Zombies, Ninja of the Magnificence, Pod People, Rock n' Roll Nightmare, The Room, Sinbad of the Seven Seas, and Space Mutiny are all brilliant in their atrociousness.

Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks, and in this case, great flicks of a particular type.

With You're Next opening this Friday on the heels of the massive box office success of The Purge, audiences this year are again questioning the safety of their own homes. It's not at all surprising that the home invasion formula has endured so long in horror movies and thrillers -- after all, what idea strikes more directly and violently at our collective comfort than one exposing the vulnerability of where we live?

However, for whatever reason, the cannon of home invasion "classics" is fairly narrow. Critics these days often name-check Straw Dogs, Last House on the Left, Wait Until Dark, and more recently, Funny Games and The Strangers, but ignore a plethora of fascinating, horrifying and sometimes just bizarre entries into the genre. And so, check your doors and windows, then join us as we explore fifteen lesser-known, but no less terrifying cinematic tales of home invasion from all over the world. Be sure to chime in with any of your favorites that we missed in the comments below.

This idea began, as all great ideas do these days, as a discussion over the Twitter wires. At first the question was this: "What is the best horror film of the last ten years?"

I received dozens of great responses, but was distracted by an entertainingly civil argument with several people over whether or not Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth qualifies as a horror film. (I say it does, which is kind of a spoiler. Let's just say Pan's Labyrinth made my Top 10.) So with the assistance of the Twitter gallery (and the inestimable help of my pal @williambgoss), I offer a completely subjective (yet hopefully intelligent) list.

This is it. The end of the lists. Finally! So the other day I posted the best documentaries of the decade as selected by a group of acclaimed documentary filmmakers. Now, we’ve got The Documentary Blog’s own top 50 docs of the decade. I was originally aiming for 25 but I just couldn’t cut it down, so 50 will have to do. Let me stress that this list represents my own personal opinion and nothing more. Hopefully some people can use this as a starting point to check out some great films. Feel free to share your own lists in the comments and let me know what I missed! One thing’s for sure; it has been a great decade for documentaries!"

Few talk about the ’90s as a filmmaking renaissance on par with the late ’60s and early ’70s, but for many of the film critics at The A.V. Club, it was the decade when we were coming of age as cinephiles and writers, and we remember it with considerable affection. Those ’70s warhorses like Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman posted some of the strongest work of their careers, and an exciting new generation of filmmakers—Quentin Tarantino, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wong Kar-Wai, Olivier Assayas, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson among them—were staking out territory of their own. Presented over three days—with two 20-film lists, then a separate one for the top 10—our Top 50 survey was conducted in an effort to reflect group consensus and individual passion, with the disclaimer that all such lists have a degree of arbitrariness that can’t be avoided. (On Thursday, we’ll run a supplemental list of orphans, also-rans, and personal favorites that will undoubtedly be quirkier.) One more note before digging in: Filmmakers who had a particularly good decade were often divided against themselves in the voting. Which Coen brothers movie is the strongest? Which color from Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors trilogy shone the brightest? Peel slowly and see…

The scene was not unlike 12 Angry Men (or, in this case, 3 Shlubby Men, 1 Exasperated Woman, And A Dude On Speaker Phone From Arkansas): Armed with lists of their favorite movies of the decade, the five core A.V. Club film writers spent days sequestered in a stuffy, un-air-conditioned room—okay, it was actually just a few hours, and we were comfortable—in an effort to forge consensus on the Top 50 films of the ’00s. The result: A ranked list that is in no way arbitrary and will serve as the canonical standard for decades to come. You’re welcome.

cloned from Japanese Cyberpunk by sp1ti

Japanese Cyberpunk is a genre of underground film produced in Japan starting in the late 1980s. It bears some semblance to the high-tech and scientific Cyberpunk as understood in the West, however differs in its representation of industrial and metallic imagery and an incomprehensible narrative. The genre is primarily defined by the movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man. (Wikipedia)

No Anime Series or 'Splatter Punk' (recent releases of gore heavy movies from the likes of Nishimura/Iguchi etc.).

Over 1,000 films are listed in this visually arresting, full-color celebration of the silver screen. Film personalities, including actors, directors, cinematographers, and animators, write about their favorite films from a variety of angles. Martin Scorsese, Nicole Kidman, and Nick Hornby are among those who weigh in. Writers are matched to suitable (or sometimes surprising) themes and genres within the wider subject of how films can alter the course of a life. Movie stills and posters, trivia, and top-ten lists make this a book that can be dipped into or read from cover to cover. Great screen moments — endings, beginnings, kisses, death scenes — are given special spreads. The eclectic approach speaks to fans of big Hollywood blockbusters and factoid-reciting film geeks alike.

This list combines 2 books by Patrick Galloway:

1-51: Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves: The Samurai Film Handbook (2005)

52-91: Warring Clans, Flashing Blades: A Samurai Film Companion (2009)

"Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves provides essential background on the samurai warrior in Japanese culture to help explain what makes these tales of loyalty, revenge and explosive swordsmanship so watchable. It covers top directors and stars and has over 50 original reviews of a wide variety of films, from classics like Samurai Trilogy and Yojimbo to influential films like Lady Snowblood, plus newly released hits like Takeshi Kitano’s Zatoichi."

"Warring Clans, Flashing Blades picks up where Galloway’s fan-favorite Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves left off, delving deeper into the samurai film and its spin-off genres—yakuza, ninja, and matatabi."

Establishing the best anime movies can be tricky. After all, despite now being one of the most ubiquitous cultural properties of the 21st century, anime, thanks to over a century’s worth of the medium’s evolution and reinvention, is especially difficult to define. From the five-minute shorts of Oten Shimokawa in 1917, to the feature-length animations produced during World War II, to the pioneering production cycles of Tezuka in the ’60s and the auteurist innovations of the likes of Miyazaki and many others towards the latter half of the last century, anime has morphed through countless phases. Amateur efforts, nationalist propaganda fodder, niche cultural export turned eventual global phenomenon: Each iteration conforms to the shape of the times in which it was produced. Television expanded the medium during the 1960s, birthing many of the essential genres and subgenres that we know today and forming the impetus for the anime industry’s inextricable relationship to advertising and merchandising from the 1970s onward. The arrival of home video catapulted anime to its commercial and aesthetic apex, fanning outward from island nation of Nippon to the far shores of North America and back, before again being revolutionized by the unprecedented accessibility of the world wide web throughout the ’90s and early aughts. Anime film owes much to the evolving means of production and distribution throughout the late 20th century, the breadth and audacity of the medium’s content widening and contracting along with its running time to cater to the emerging palettes of audiences both new and old, at home and abroad. But where does one begin to tackle the aesthetic and historical precedent that anime film has left on pop culture and global entertainment in the last century?

This list is an attempt to do just that: to create a primer of 100 of the most influential and essential films that Japanese animation has produced, and to offer a thorough aesthetic, technical and historical breakdown of why these film matter. With that aim in mind, Paste is proud to enlist the curatorial talents of Jason DeMarco, on-air creative director of Adult Swim and co-creator of Toonami, whose unique role in anime’s emerging popularity in the West has helped to hone this list. Given the shared evolution between anime film and television and the aforementioned significance of the home video revolution, this list includes not only traditional features but also original video animations made for home video (OVAs) and anthology films— with the stipulation of each entry having at some point premiered in theaters. It is our hope that in creating this list we have created an entry point for both the expert and the layperson to trace the rich history of anime’s legacy on both film and popular culture, and to offer newcomers a comprehensive guide through to learn, rediscover, and explore the fullness that the genre of Japanese animation has to offer now and into the future.
